Did You Dream About Royalty? Here's What It Means

A dream image like royalty can be a difficult one to really explain for sure. Because dreams are like reflections of our subconscious minds, and they often include symbolic references to our waking-life, no single explanation can ever match everyone's dream.

Below are three different interpretations of dreams about royalty, seen from three different angles.

Which of these explanations best matches your dream?

What does royalty mean in dreams?

1. The traditional interpretation

A dream about being a member of royalty points to things like a desire for power, wealth, or recognition in your waking life. But the dream is often more nuanced.

It may also reflect feelings of entitlement or superiority.

Alternatively, dreaming about interacting with royalty can symbolize your association with people of high status in your waking life, or your aspiration to be in such circles.

It can also represent your need for approval or validation from authoritative figures. Both of these dreams suggest a focus on social status, power dynamics, and personal ambition.

Royalty is complex dream image to pin down. To say for certain, I would have to really dig deep into the dreamer's past and current circumstances.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of oneself as royalty may be thought of as an expression of the Jungian archetype of the Self, embodying the unconscious aspiration for wholeness and self-actualization.

We can take this reasoning to another level: It may also reflect the ego's struggle with the 'shadow' - the unacknowledged or repressed aspects of oneself. Interacting with royalty, however, may symbolize the encounter with the 'anima' or 'animus' - the contrasexual aspects within one's own psyche. This could indicate a need for integration and balance between the masculine and feminine aspects of oneself. Both of these dreams, therefore, suggest a deep psychological process of self-discovery and individuation.

Dreaming of being royalty signifies your soul's yearning for spiritual elevation, a call to recognize your divine nature. It's a spiritual nudge to embrace your innate power and wisdom. Interacting with royalty, by contrast, symbolizes your spiritual guides or higher beings reaching out to you. It's a divine invitation to seek wisdom and guidance from higher realms. Both of these dreams are spiritual reminders of your divine lineage and the need to connect with your higher self. They encourage you to embrace your spiritual sovereignty and to seek divine wisdom in your journey of soul evolution.
