A dream about an ellipse, a shape with no beginning or end, often hints at continuity, infinity, and balance. The meaning isn't likely to be quite so simple, however.

It may be a representation of the cyclical nature of life and the balance between two opposing forces. If you're drawing or seeing an ellipse, it could indicate that you're trying to find balance in your life or seeking a resolution to a situation that seems endless. This dream could be a reminder to consider all aspects of a situation and strive for equilibrium.

An ellipse is often a complex dream object to make any kind of definitive analysis about. To really say for certain, I'd need to get a deeper understanding of the dreamer's life and mindset.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

To have dreamed of an ellipse, a geometric figure with two focal points, may reflect the Freudian concept of dualism, the struggle between two opposing forces within the psyche, such as the id and the superego.

It's a complex concept though... The dreamer may be grappling with conflicting desires or moral dilemmas. If one is drawing or observing an ellipse, it could symbolize the process of introspection, of seeking to understand these internal conflicts. The act of drawing, a form of creative expression, may be a representation of the ego's attempts to mediate between the id's primal urges and the superego's moral constraints. This dream may be a call to reconcile these opposing forces and achieve psychological equilibrium.0

To have dreamt of an ellipse, a shape with two foci, can be a spiritual symbol of duality and unity. It may be a representation of the dual aspects of your spiritual self - the physical and the divine, or the conscious and the subconscious. Seeing or drawing an ellipse could be a divine message urging you to harmonize these aspects, to find a balance between earthly matters and spiritual pursuits. The act of drawing an ellipse could signify the creative process of spiritual growth and self-realization. This dream is a spiritual reminder that in the grand cycle of life, all things are interconnected and balanced, and that your journey is part of this divine harmony.
