A dream about marigolds symbolizes optimism, prosperity, and success. But the interpretation can be more multifaceted than that.

They are often associated with the sun, representing passion and creativity. If you're planting marigolds, it suggests you're nurturing your goals and ambitions, hoping for growth and fruition. Picking marigolds, by contrast, could indicate that you're ready to reap the rewards of your hard work. It's a sign of accomplishment and satisfaction. Both of these dreams reflect a positive outlook and a proactive approach towards life.

Marigolds can be a somewhat very deep dream concept to to give you a single, definitive meaning for. To really know for sure, I'd want to understand the dreamer's past and current life scenario.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of marigolds, in Freudian terms, may point to latent feelings of transience and mortality, as these flowers are often associated with remembrance and the cyclical nature of life.

I'm also thinking generally about marigolds: Planting marigolds could symbolize the unconscious desire to sow seeds of change or renewal, a manifestation of the pleasure principle seeking gratification. Picking marigolds, conversely, might represent the reality principle at work, acknowledging the fruition of efforts or the acceptance of life's impermanence. These dream scenarios, while seemingly disparate, are intrinsically linked, reflecting the eternal struggle between the id's instinctual drives and the ego's mediating influence.

Dreaming of marigolds signifies a spiritual awakening, a blossoming of inner wisdom and enlightenment. These radiant flowers symbolize the divine light within us, urging us to shine brightly in the world. If you've dreamt of planting marigolds, you are being called to sow seeds of spiritual growth, to cultivate your inner garden with love, compassion, and understanding. Picking marigolds in a dream, however, is a divine message that you are ready to harvest the fruits of your spiritual journey, to embrace the wisdom and insights you've gained. Both of these dreams are spiritual milestones, marking your progress on the path of self-discovery and spiritual enlightenment.
