Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary | Pamela Ball

This simple and basic fruit is a powerful symbol in religious writings, literature and in dreams. It fundamentally represents knowledge and the freedom that are associated with it. With knowledge and freedom we are in a position to make positive or negative choices.

The apple should be interpreted with the consideration of all the other details in the dream. Is the apple a symbol of positive movement and spiritual and emotional liberation, or is it a symbol of runaway passions and the resulting negativity? Are you giving into temptation and making hurtful choices or are being wise and enjoying the fullness of life? **Apples: Apples speak of emotions and include long happy lives, love, children, relationships, temptations and desires. Is the apple in good condition or does it contain worms; it is attractive and firm; rotting or partially eaten? Whatever its condition, it is describing what is happening in the arena of your emotional life.

If you are being handed an apple, it could be saying that someone is tempting you. Take a good look at the apple that is being handed to you - is it as it should be? Who is handing it to you? What condition are the apples in? Applies indicate love, protection, and good luck generated by positive and healthy personal ethics. 

The Bedside Dream Dictionary | Silvana Amar

The apple is related to sex; it symbolizes pleasure and sensuality. It’s the forbidden fruit, the sin that Adam and Eve committed in paradise. In oneiric terms, it reveals a desire to enjoy earthly pleasures.

If it is tasty, it indicates emotional satisfaction; if it is green, difficulties; if it is rotten, frustrations. From a Freudian point of view, eating an apple is synonymous with sexual appetite. The apple, however, also represents knowledge and freedom of choice. Just what Adam and Eve obtained when they left behind their innocence.

Especially if they are red, dreaming of apples is a good omen.

If they are ripe and sweet, you will be rewarded; if they are sour, you may suffer losses because of your own foolishness. Apples lying on the ground predict the dishonesty of your friends. Finally, if they are rotten, all your efforts will be in vain.

The Curious Dreamer’s Dream Dictionary | Nancy Wagaman

Healthful influence; new understanding, greater knowledge and wisdom. Energy and self-direction. Whether apple is ripe, beautiful, rotten or wormy suggests whether you are opening to new energy and insight, or need to clean out negativity and decay.

The Dream Books Symbols | Betty Bethards

In Judeo-Christian belief, the apple denotes sin and temptation because of the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden after the serpent tempted Eve to eat the apple growing on the Tree of Knowledge. Greek mythology associated the apple with sexual attraction. So if you are married and tempted to bite or steal an apple in your dream, this could represent the attraction of a forbidden affair. Their association with the Tree of Knowledge means that apples may also indicate the self-knowledge and insight gained from experience. On the other hand, they may also symbolize a desire to return to lost innocence.

To see apples growing in a tree in your dream symbolizes wisdom and that wellearned rewards will be gained in the future. Consider also the common phrase, ’an apple a day keeps the doctor away’; this may imply that you need to take better care of your health. To see green apples represents developing love or love that has yet to blossom. To see a rotten or half-eaten apple in your dream denotes that what you are striving and aiming for may not only be unfulfilling; it may even be harmful to you. A popular image of the comforts of home and childhood, apple pie probably reflects a desire to return to the security of childhood. Old rivalries and resentments may be expressed if you appear to be served a smaller slice of pie than the others present in your dreams.

The Element Encyclopedia | Theresa Cheung

(see Eating, Juice, Trees)

Temptation to break personal taboos, or divine or societal laws. Responsible use of knowledge, skills, or wisdom.

Matters of health: How the apple looks may have a direct bearing on how you’re feeling.

Appearing abundantly on a tree: A propitious sign that speaks of realizing your hopes.

Only at the top of a tree: High ambitions that you may not be able to safely or effectively reach.

Worm ridden: If you bite into an apple to discover a worm, this means that something isn’t as good as it outwardly appears, especially someone’s ethical codes.

Arthurian: Longevity. King Arthur was taken to Avalon, the Isle of Apples, to live forever. Similarly, in Norse legends apples are used as a resurrection charm, and Hera’s Tree of Life is filled with golden apples.
