(1) A black hole or dark depths - for example, an unlit cellar or a deep well or oceanic depths - may represent the unconscious. This blackness mav be frightening, so long as the unconscious remains alien and unfamiliar. However, black can also be warm and comforting - which is whv insomniacs arc sometimes advised to close their eyes and imagine themselves wrapped.round in black velvet.
If you begin to trust your unconscious (which means trusting Nature), each previously horrifying or disgusting part of your unconscious will show itself in a new light, as something vou need for personal fulfilment. Putting vour consciousness
into the unconscious - becoming aware of it - means putting more and more light into the darkness.
If a star or other bright light appears in the blackness, this may be seen as a ‘light at the end of the tunnel’, that is, as a symbol of the ‘illumination’ - new wisdom or insight - that may be achieved by dwelling a while in the unconscious and making its better acquaintance.
(2) Black (particularly for white people) may symbolize evil.
If so, bear in mind that, as a general rule, what appears in your dreams is always some part of you, and that the so-called ‘evil’ (and therefore repressed) parts of you are really evil only if, because of neglect, they become rebellious, or if you let them take control away from your conscious self. These ‘evil’ things are transformed into good things - creative, and bringing fuller life, happiness and wholeness - when conscious and unconscious interact and establish a harmonious working relationship.
NB It is only Judaism, Christianity and Islam that have a thoroughgoing dualism of good and evil, and a matching moral dogmatism. In the earliest known forms of religion, and in traditions (such as the Hindu, Buddhist and Taoist traditions) that have not cut themselves off from their early roots, good and evil are opposite but equally necessary’ components of reality; and in mystical traditions (including Jewish, Christian and Islamic mysticism) even God is described as a coming together of opposites - good and evil, but also masculine and feminine.
(3) A person dressed in black may represent vour shadow.
(4) A black-skinned person (if you are white-skinned) may represent either the shadow or closeness to Nature.
(5) A black animal probably represents some unconscious repressed drive or emotion.
If the animal is fierce, this possibly means that something yrou have repressed is now urgently pressing you to give it your conscious attention and let it have some expression in your w aking life.
(6) Blackness (as in a black night, etc.) may simply signify’ diminished visibility, in which case the meaning of the dream may have something to do w ith a loss of orientation in your life. Do vou feel you don’t know’ which w’ay to go; or that you don’t hav e the energy’ or will to go in any direction? If so, make a pact w ith v our unconscious to die effect that, if it will tell you where you have the potential - and the need - to go, you will respond accordingly in your life. Then pav close attention
to the dreams that follow. (If you go the next few nights without dreaming - or, more precisely, without recalling any dreams - this probably means that you are backing out of the pact and setting up a defence against what you fear your unconscious might have to tell you.)
(7) Black may symbolize despair or deep depression.
If so, follow the advice given in (6) above.
(8) In many parts of the world black is associated with death.
It is possible, therefore, that this is what the colour signifies in your dream. Bear in mind, however, that death in a dream may refer to something internal: the ‘death’ - or the giving up - of something within you (for example, some irrational fear, or other negative attitude or emotion). See also Death.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols

The darker sides of life connect with the color black. Though it is thought of as the absence of color to some, in the world of physics, black is actually the presence of all colors in the object that embodies it.
It is the color that absorbs the most light, retains heat, and is associated with death, as it is the opposite of life-affirming white. As the color of mourning, black clothing represents the social construct of receiving consolation in some cultures. When we are in mourning, we are surrounded by people who share in our sadness. In the same way that a black shirt will absorb all wavelengths of sunlight, a person in mourning wears black in order to absorb the light from those who surround him or her. In the world of fashion, black has a connotation of being trendy and sophisticated. Nighttime is when blackness reigns, bringing secrecy and the ability to hide into this color’s symbolic meaning.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams
Black is viewed as a symbol of death and mourning in many cultures, and when it appears in dreams it is linked with feelings of sadness, loss and even passivity. Its appearance may also represent the death of old ideas, or some other aspect of change. Another possible explanation is that it represents a hidden or rejected aspect of the dreamer, as it is also the color of mystery, the unconscious and sometimes even protection. Some dream analysts refer to the shadowy effects of black in dreams, suggesting that they are symbols of the dreamer’s shadow or of an unfulfilled part of their life. It may therefore symbolize absolute recklessness and disregard of life, without considering or caring about the consequences.
If black predominates in a dream, consider taking a rational and reasonable approach in waking life

To dream in black and white suggests that you need to be more objective in formulating your decisions. You may be a little too unyielding in your thought processes, and thus need to find some sort of balance between two opposing views. Consider the views and opinions of others. Alternatively, black and white dreams may be a sign of depression or sadness. You may feel that there is not enough excitement in your life.
It is a quite commonly held belief that we only dream in black and white, but many people are able to identify tones of color in their dreams.
If this is the case, why is it believed that we only dream in black and white? It may be because dreams that appear to be black and white only appear so because the color is not relevant. This doesn’t necessarily mean, however, that such dreams are in black and white. Black and white is a function of television when the color information is removed, but the same is not true of the mind. For example, grass might not be green in a dream, but it’s not gray as it is in a black and white movie; the color simply is not relevant and your unconscious isn’t highlighting it. This non-relevance fools the conscious mind on waking up into concluding that, by implication, the dream must have been in black and white.
A black funeral may suggest difficulties in, or the need for a new approach to, a relationship or work issue, as the current approach is doomed. Or are you grieving for a phase or aspect of your life that has recently come to an end? As stated above, black often represents the death of new ideas, so could your dream be telling you to prepare for the transition? Black animals that appear in dreams are usually associated with notions of temptation, unconscious drives and urges, whilst black clothes and underwear are a symbol of hidden or unconscious feelings, or sexuality. A night dream scene shrouded in darkness may relate to a certain lack of direction in your waking life. According to traditional symbolism, black is also associated with wickedness, so if you are menaced by a person wearing black in your dream, could the dream be a depiction of your darkest fears. Do you worry that someone is a threat to you or are you your own worst enemy?

My Dream Interpretation
If white: one’s natural drives, feelings about coloured people; or if person is known, what you feel about them.
If black or brown: one’s own cultural feelings; same as any person’ dream.
Example: \ was in a cubicle or small toilet with a very black coloured woman. She told me there was something wrong with her vagina. She was undressed. I rubbed her vagina and we both felt enormous passion. I then awoke but couldn’t at first remember the dream. I have refrained from sexual intercourse for some weeks, as I always feel shattered/ tired afterwards. Anyway I woke very wet, yet couldn’t remember any orgasm. I could remember some question of sex as I awoke. Then I remembered the dream and continued it in fantasy. I experienced powerful urges to find a woman to have a non-committed sexual relationship with. But in the end I wanted to share my feelings with my wife, but she seemed deep asleep and unresponsive. When I slept again I dreamt I was in London, had got off one bus, but was not at any destination. I was standing about not making a move to find my direction. Then I began to look’ (Alfred C).
To understand this dream in some depth it is helpful to think of a sexual drive as a flow, like a river. As such it can be blocked, in which case it will seek an alternative route. Sexual energy or flow is not simply a mechanical thing, ihough; it is also deeply feeling in its connection with the most profound sides of human life such as parenthood and the canng and providing for young. In the history of white people a great deal of sexual frustration has arisen out of the ideas of sin and guilt in their religion.
A view arose for the white race that the black races had an easier and less frustrating relationship with the natural —which includes not only sexuality but the body as a whole, and nature also. So when Alfred dreams of the black woman, he is meeting what is natural and flowing in himself, but which he has blocked by his will because he felt shattered after sex.
The pan about the bus shows him trying to find a direction in which his sexual feelings could move satisfyingly in connection with other people.
Unfonunately, as Jung points out in Man and His Symbols, people in modern society, whether black, yellow, brown or white, have lost their sense of nature and the cosmos as being anything other than processes without consciousness or living feeling. Jung says. No river contains a spirit, no tree is the life principle of a man. no snake the embodiment of wisdom. No voice now speaks to man from stones, plants, and animals, nor does he speak to them believing they can hear.’ The importance of such dreams as Arthur’s is that it shows the passionate relationship between our personality and the pnmitive and natural.
A black person, born and bred in a modern setting, would most likely dream of a black bushman to depict their own natural drives. See identity and dreams; Africa; sex in dreams. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences
(The corner stone of the Ka’aba; God’s House in Mecca) Seeing or holding the Black Stone of the Ka’aba in one’s dream means paying allegiance to the ruler, or it could mean repentance from sin at the hand of a pious Imam, or it could mean kissing one’s son, wife or bosom friend.

The house is also a universal female sex symbol.
Compare this to C. J. Jung’s 1909 dream in which— while exploring a house—he finds a flight of stairs that leads to the basement, where he discovers bones and human skulls. This dream was important because it led to Jung’s idea of the collective unconscious: Attics and basements are places that hold what we repress; rooms in the upper part of a house provide perspective and vision; bedrooms indicate sexual content; the kitchen is the place where alchemy provides transformation; the bath is the place for cleansing; a workroom is the place for everyday situations....

A basement can also highlight the power that is available to us provided we are willing to make use of it. We may not have come to terms with our own sexuality and prefer to keep it hidden. Bathroom In dreams our attitude to personal cleanliness and our most private thoughts and actions can be shown as the bathroom or toilet. Bedroom The bedroom portrays a place of safety where we can relax and be as sensual as we wish. Chimney As a passage from one state to another and a conductor of heat, in dreams the chimney can indicate how we deal with our inner emotions and warmth. Hall The hallway in a dream is illustrative of how we meet and relate to other people. Library Our minds, and how we store the information we receive, can appear as a library.

(Or any place of residence) if we are aware that the house is not empty – that it is furnished in some way – those articles will mirror some aspect of our character or day-to-day concerns. Also consult the individual entry for furniture / furnishings. Being aware of someone else in the house suggests that we may be feeling threatened by an aspect of our own personality.
If there are different activities going on it indicates that there is a conflict between two parts of our personality, possibly the creative and the intellectual.

(1) A house or other building may be a symbol of yourself. Going upstairs may mean going into the ‘head’ - that is, the layer of mind where (rational) thinking takes place. Cellars may represent the unconscious. Different parts of the house may be of different ages, the modem representing the conscious ego, the oldest the deep layers of the unconscious - what Jung called the ‘collective unconscious’.
If the house feels cramped, this might indicate frustration. Is some part of you not yet developed, not yet integrated into consciousness? What is keeping this or that instinct or emotion repressed?
If the house is cracked or crumbling, this could indicate either anxiety concerning your life, or the breaking down of an old image of yourself, to give way to a more accurate or larger view of your potential.
(2) A house may represent your self-image: how you see yourself, or how you want to be seen by the world, or what you want from life.
(3) If the house is your parental home, what you feel in the dream may say a lot about your childhood feelings - about your parents, for instance.
The self. Where you are in the house and what is going on provides insight into the many facets of your life. Walking into darkened or unknown rooms is exploring unknown parts of self.
If rooms are cluttered, get organized and clean out old, useless habits and ideas. Furniture and people in house are aspects of yourself. Note especially colors and shapes. Different rooms are different aspects of self:
Upstairs or attic - spiritual awareness.
Ground floor - daily living situations.

The house symbolizes the personality, the current situation, and the emotional or professional relationships. Therefore, to find out the meaning of this dream you must analyze all aspects. The interior of the house is your body; the dining room and the kitchen represent the digestive system; the bedroom, rest and sexual activity; bathroom, kidneys and cleanliness, both physical and spiritual; the upper floors, the mind; and the cellar or basement, the unconscious. (See HUT, CAVE, BALCONY, CELLAR)
Nomadic gypsies believe that dreams in which you are forced to leave your home indicate that you expect a favorable opportunity.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams
For the psychologist Carl Jung, building a house was a symbol of building a self. In his autobiographical Memories, Dreams and Reflections, Jung described the gradual evolution of his home on Lake Zurich. Jung spent more than thirty years building this castle-like structure, and he believed that the towers and annexes represented his psyche. In dreams therefore, houses may represent your life structures or what you have created for yourself as a way of life; for example, values, attitudes and goals, or things you feel ‘at home’ with, or feel you can be yourself with.
When interpreting dreams of houses, how you feel about the house is of particular importance. Houses can be forbidding places, and if you feel anxious in your dream, this suggests that something about your personality is bothering you. That you noted a particular part of the house in your dream may offer a clue, and the different rooms and everyday things in the house are also important as they represent different aspects of your feelings and make up. It is common to dream of returning to a house from your past that you knew or lived in. This dream may be nostalgic or it may reflect a longing to return to the innocence of childhood.
If you dreamed of leaving a house, the message is that you are ready to move on in waking life.
If the house in your dream felt like it was your home, see also HOME.... The Element Encyclopedia
To be living in a house in your dream, even one that isn’t at all like your home, also represents yourself. Jung once called the house the‘mansion of the soul’, and most dream analysts believe that houses in dreams become holistic symbols of yourself; your mind, body, spirit and your past, present and future.
If you were buying or building a house in your dream, perhaps you are considering making a dramatic change to your life, even to the extent of rebuilding it.
If your dreams focus on paying the rent or the mortgage and this isn’t a problem in waking life, then they are highlighting a responsibility in waking life that you find a burden. An abandoned house in disrepair may suggest emotional and physical neglect, whilst a house that is shuttered up might suggest being blind to what is going on around you. Dreams of an unfinished house should motivate rather than be a cause of despair, as life is a constant work-in-progress. A half-built house suggests what you need to acquire to further your personal development; perhaps more windows to give you a better perspective. A damaged blind or broken lock in your dream can highlight lack of privacy or your perceived vulnerability. A house in bad repair can denote the need to heal a family rift.
Even the most bizarre dream homes reflect the psychological territory you are living in right now, even if that‘home’ is a medieval dungeon, a tropical island, a prisoner-of-war camp or a train station.
If you dreamed of living in a bizarre or fictional setting, consider the condition and qualities of that situation. Is it cramped, crowded or lonely? Your new dream home can give you valuable information about how your current circumstances are affecting you and how you relate to others.
If you are restricted or limited in your dream territory, ask yourself if you are creating those restrictions by your reaction or if the situation is creating it. To see an old, run-down house in your dream represents your old beliefs, attitudes and how you used to think or feel. A situation in your current life may be bringing about those same old attitudes and feelings. Alternatively, the old house may symbolize your need to update your mode of thinking.
If your dream house is unfurnished, this may suggest a bleak self, devoid of feeling; an empty house, however, may indicate new opportunities.
To dream of a haunted house signifies unfinished emotional business, related to your childhood family, dead relatives, or repressed memories and feelings. To see a glass house in your dream signifies that appearances in waking life may be deceptive. To dream that you are living in a glass house signifies the threatened loss of your reputation. To see a mansion in your dream suggests that you need to grow in some way or other; if servants are waiting on you, this indicates undue vanity. You may feel that your current situation or relationship is in a rut and want to expand and develop your potential.
If you see yourself living in a cottage, this signifies a longing for a gentler more spontaneous way of life.
An ancient house could refer to a previous life in some way connected with your present existence.
If you are living in a tent or mobile caravan in your dream, do you feel weighed down by the routine of your life? Would you like to travel, move house, get back to nature or try the life of a nomad for a while? If you imagine your house is in amongst skyscrapers in the city, this suggests a preoccupation with financial matters, perhaps at the expense of your personal life. The opposite is true if your house is in a village in your dream.
Whether your dream home is an igloo or a mansion, pay attention to the details of the dream as it will be like a documentary featuring the interaction of your past beliefs, current challenges and recent situations.
If you don’t like what you see, it is important to understand that you are in charge of your life; sometimes making small changes may be all that is needed to bring big results. Ancient dream-lore has many interpretations for dreams about houses and homes but here are the most typical: country house, tranquility ahead; building a house, you will be self-confident; new house, a busy social life; empty house, low income; moving house, worries about money....

Your inner being, inner sanctum or your physical body, houses in dreams often serve to guide you to a specific period or feeling within your life.
If your dream house is a home from the past, or a specific room within the home, the dominant memory or feeling from that time or place will provide further interpretational clues. The most common room in the house to appear in dreams is the bathroom; this represents purification or refreshment. A messy bathroom may suggest an area of your life that requires attention or cleansing.... The Element Encyclopedia
A house under construction may suggest the construction of a project that has been framed in your mind but has not yet been completed. It may represent the ideas that have been put together as the basic structure of what has been created.... Ariadne's Book of Dream
A house nearly always refers to oneself, depicting one’s body and attributes of personality. Thus if we take a large house with its many functional rooms, the library would represent the mind, the bathroom cleansing or renewal of good feelings, the bedrooms one’s sexuality or intimacy, the roof one’s protectiveness or ‘coping mechanisms’. Large public buildings such as hospitals, factories, blocks of flats, depict particular functions suggested by their nature. But of course, if the house or building has a personal connection—the house you live in, or place you have worked—then you need to define what are the essential feelings about such. Or see dream processing.
If a house or building has a quality of some other type of construction, such as a library feeling like a factory, or a house a church, both aspects should be accepted as important. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

Dreams that feature brooms are considered to be a sign of good fortune, suggesting that you are making a clean sweep in your waking life. The dream may be urging you to sweep out something from your past, so pay attention to what you are sweeping up.

If the broom is being used outside, are you taking too much interest in the outside world and neglecting what is really important to you?
Dreams of scissors can be related to decisiveness and cutting out unwanted emotional aspects of the dreamer’s life.
If the scissors are unused, this can express a desire to begin a new relationship or make an existing one stronger.
Dream scissors may also suggest that you are dividing your attention among too many people.
If you are cutting with scissors, you are in the process of making an important decision.
