Did You Dream About a Vase? Here's What It Means

A concept like a vase can be a perplexing one to interpret. Because dreams are like windows into our subconscious mind, and they may represent specific references to our daily lives, no single explanation will ever work for everyone.

Below are 3 contrasting perspectives on a dream about a vase, seen from three different perspectives.

Which of these explanations makes the most sense for your dream?

What does a vase mean in dreams?

1. The traditional interpretation

A dream about a vase often hints at the womb, femininity, or the nurturing aspect of your personality. But as you know, a dream seldom has such a simple interpretation.

It can also represent a hidden or untapped talent. If the vase is full, it suggests abundance and satisfaction in life. If it's empty, it may indicate feelings of emptiness or loneliness. Breaking a vase in a dream can symbolize a fear of loss or change, or it could represent the breaking of old habits or patterns. Filling a vase, by contrast, may symbolize a desire to nurture others or to be nurtured, or it could represent the filling of your life with positive experiences or emotions.

A vase can often be a difficult dream object to offer a firm opinion about. To know for certain, it's really necessary to really dig deep into the dreamer's past and current circumstances.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of a vase, in Freudian terms, may signify the ego, the vessel that contains our conscious experiences.

Taking that analysis a bit deeper... A full vase might suggest a well-rounded, fulfilled ego, while an empty one may hint at a sense of dissatisfaction or lack. Breaking a vase could symbolize a shattering of the ego, perhaps due to a traumatic event or a significant shift in self-perception. Filling a vase, conversely, might represent the process of ego development, the accumulation of experiences and knowledge that shape our identities. These interpretations, however, are not definitive, as the unconscious mind's language is highly personal and subjective.0

3. The spiritualist's interpretation

Dreaming of a vase can be a spiritual symbol of your inner self, the container of your soul's essence. If the vase is intact, it reflects a state of spiritual harmony and balance. If it's broken, it may suggest a spiritual awakening, breaking free from old constraints to embrace a new spiritual path. Filling a vase can symbolize the spiritual nourishment you are receiving or the divine love you are pouring into others. An empty vase, however, might indicate a spiritual void or a yearning for deeper spiritual connection. Remember, these interpretations are subjective and should resonate with your personal spiritual journey.

Only you can know for sure. It's worth noting that our subconscious mind can be a convoluted place. Just about any image in a dream can symbolize a long list of things — or result from many different realities from our waking lives.
