What does it mean to see an autumn in a dream?

Autumn Dream Meaning: From 22 Different Sources


(1) Autumn is the transition from summer and harvest-time to winter, the season of death. It may therefore symbolize the ending of (a particular kind of) achievement; a time to stop getting and concentrate on being; maturity.

Autumn is also a time for tidying the garden and digging in manure for new growth in the following year. So in the process of personal development the message of autumn may be that the cessation of some kinds of activity is a prelude to growth in other areas of one’s life; and that accumulated ‘rubbish’ - non-productive or counter-productive habits and attitudes — must be got rid of, to make way for new growth.

(2) The occurrence of autumnal scenes in your dreams may coincide with your own ‘autumn years’, the second half of life.

If so, remember that trees bear fruits in autumn, and autumn has a beauty of its own.

Example: ‘My husband was in a wheelchair, I was pushing him along a promenade. At the end of the prome­nade was a path which we took.

The path went along the top of a cliff.

The sea below was pretty rough, a typical autumn day at the seaside. All of a sudden the path came to an end’ (Mrs C). Mrs C had this dream at a time when she staned her own business, against her husband’s wishes, and one week before he walked out on her. Autumn here depicts her sense of something ending. Can also be: ‘the autumn of one’s life’; mellow feelings.

If you have the dream in autumn, then the season has no significance and serves only as background.

But if you dream of autumn at another time of year, and other symbols in the dream are hurried, this is a signal that time is passing and something in your life needs immediate attention.

All other dreams of autumn are positive, signifying friendly forces supporting and protecting you.

Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation | Gustavus Hindman Miller


A serene season suggesting peace and melancholy. Autumn invites reflection, knowledge, inner maturation. After the splendor of summer, this season inspires some elegant decadence. Gradually, the winter is approaching, or the end of life, which is the same. Autumn given to introspection, allows you to face this inescapable end positively valuing that which you have had, without thinking about what you will soon lack. Consequently, this dream urges you to use knowledge and past experiences to solve the problems of the present. Dreams that refer to this season of falling leaves are often related to the next stage of life before old age or a fear of the arrival of that stage. These dreams usually occur to people of middle age, and although they are often melancholy, rarely are they deeply sad. They symbolize a reconciliation of age as a natural part of the cycle of nature.

Dreams dealing with the autumn mean that a series of ups and downs may be experienced, but the transformations that are felt may be crucial to your personal growth. This time may represent a maturing of your ideas. It is also a time when one cycle ends and trees bear fruit, so it may suggest the fruition of a plan.

Autumn may also symbolize middle age. Bear in mind too that Keats’s ‘season of mists and mellow fruitfulness’ conjures up images of poetry even in dreams.

If you dream of autumn your dreaming mind is urging you to reap what you sow and appreciate your blessings.
