Water represents emotions, and ice is frozen water. Symbolically, ice represents emotional content that has been dramatically altered.
The resulting substance is cold and hard—adjectives that do not conjure pleasant sensations when applied to one’s emotional nature. From the world of physics, we know that ice is not created by adding cold, but rather by the loss of heat. This tells us that when ice is present, warmth has been lost or given away. Ice can also be dangerous, especially when one must maneuver over it. An icy road has the symbolic connotation that a lack of emotional fluidity can be treacherous on your path through life.Complete Dictionary of Dreams | Dr. Mıchael Lennox

To put ice into a drink indicates that perhaps the dreamer is spending too much time indulging in pleasures and not enough on practical matters. However, to be surrounded by ice, or to sit on it, implies comfortable living ahead that has been well earned.
Slipping on ice or falling through thin ice implies difficulties and obstacles ahead, while deliberately breaking through ice indicates new friendships. Remember the metaphor, “breaking the ice”?
Skating on ice alone indicates success ahead, but skating with a partner COULD mean that someone is sabotaging your efforts. Or it could mean a successful partnership.

Universal Landscape: Absence of emotional warmth and fluidity.
Dreaming Lens: Where was the ice in your dream? Were you putting it to use? If so, how? Was the ice naturally occurring? Was it the result of weather conditions? Were you able to successfully maneuver over or through the ice?
Personal Focus: Water represents emotions and ice is frozen water. Symbolically, ice represents emotional content that has been dramatically altered. The resulting substance is cold and hard—adjectives that do not conjure pleasant sensations when applied to one’s emotional nature. From the world of physics, we know that ice is not created by adding cold, but rather by the loss of heat. This tells us that when ice is present, warmth has been lost or given away.
Ice can also be dangerous, especially when one must maneuver over it. An icy road has the symbolic connotation that a lack of emotional fluidity can be treacherous on your path through life. This will be the case for most dream images where ice is being formed in nature. Glaciers, ice flows, ice storms—these are all symbolic representations of the negative impact to your forward movement that results from a freezing off of your emotions.
Ice has a positive side as well. It increases the enjoyment level of many of the foods and beverages we consume and is also responsible for the invaluable process of their preservation. On the symbolic level, you should consider these constructive uses of ice. But when examined at closer range, these useful attributes are more like consequences than intentions. Ice preserves perishable materials, because in its presence, very few organisms can live and thrive. This usefulness can also be said of a person who has shut off the emotional warmth of their heart: they may feel protected from life’s occasional brutality, but only at the cost of losing life-sustaining warmth.
The Dreaming Lens will offer you insight by virtue of where the ice formed and how it impacted you in the dream. In your investigation, consider both sides of this equation. If there is danger present, then your interpretation is clear and should connect to where in your life you are withholding love, warmth, and expressiveness. If you are enjoying the value of ice in some way in your dream, you may have to probe a bit deeper for true understanding. Measure the value you are receiving against the impact and cost you may be suffering and you will be well on your way to receiving clarity about what this dream image has to offer you.Dream Sight: A Dictionary and Guide for Interpreting Any Dream | Dr. Michael Lennox
To dream of walking on ice implies a tenuous situation in your waking life.

To dream of standing on ice in bare feet suggests ‘cold feet’ and a wish to pull out of an activity you have recently agreed to participate in.
A dream of ice may be a reminder to honor your own truth, follow your heart and speak your mind.Dream Symbols and Analysis | DreamForth
Ice often symbolizes the dreamer’s emotional state.
The dreamer may not be conscious of being blocked or frozen emotionally. Falling through the ice suggests the dreamer may be “skating on thin ice” and should alter course to avoid mishap.Dream Symbols in The Dream Encyclopedia | James R. Lewis and Evelyn Dorothy Oliver
Vision: Falling on the ice: a project that was headed for success is turning had. Looking at ice crystals on the window: frustration in your love life; emotions are beginning to cool.

A snowstorm that culminates in icy roads, freezing and impeding the traffic in a dream means economic depression and slowing of the travel industry. Ice in a dream also represents men’s endurance. Filling a pot of water to make ice in a dream means saving money, or locking a coffer.Islamic Dream Interpretation | Ibn Seerin

Ice, or water in the solid form, is associated with the emotions and the unconsciousness. Dreaming about ice suggests that you may have some emotions or denied psychological issues that are not readily accessible to you. These feelings may be negative.
(I.e. fear and anxiety about death or sexual frigidity [for some people these are one and the same, sorry, just a joke!].) Things that are frozen are generally not usable and they do not change or grow. This dream may be pointing to feelings or thoughts that are inaccessible to you or to that part of you that is inaccessible to others. Superstition based dream interpretation books tell us that sitting on ice in your dreams is a dream of the contrary. It indicates that you may have a life of comfort and prosperity (this is may be silly to some but others like to hear these type of interpretations!)The Bedside Dream Dictionary | Silvana Amar
