Meaning of Watch / Clock Dreams | Dream Interpretation

Dream interpretations were found from 1 different sources.


If a timepiece appeared in your dream, it is important to remember how you felt during and after the dream as it will suggest the way in which you allocate time in your life. Were the hands moving slowly or quickly? Was the timepiece telling you to speed up or slow down? The type of clock or watch is also important. Was it old-fashioned or modern? Dreams of clocks or watches can also suggest that you rely too heavily on clock time instead of enjoying and experiencing life as it happens.

If your dreaming mind zoomed in on a watch or clock, this could also be a reminder to make the most of your time and not to waste it.

If you keep checking a clock or a watch in your dream, this suggests anxiety and worry about some future event.

If you don’t feel this to be the case, your unconscious may have conjured this panic-stricken theme to urge you to prepare better for a future event or opportunity that may soon present itself in waking life. For example, have you done enough study to pass your driving theory test? Alternatively, your dream may have indicated frustration and regret at your inability in the past to make the most of an opportunity when it was presented to you.

If you dreamed that a watch or clock slowed down, this could reflect your feeling that events are moving slowly in your waking life or that time is dragging. Alternatively, the symbol of a watch may indicate your ticking heart, so if the clock stops or slows down, this may suggest either an emotional standstill or problems with your cardiovascular system. According to ancient dream-lore and superstition, when a clock stops, somebody will die but your dream will almost certainly have a different meaning. In the symbolic language of dreams, clocks and watches reflect your emotional state and a stopped clock or a clock that is broken may indicate emotional blockages or standstills, and a clock whose hands race out of control may indicate feelings run amok.

If you dreamed of a stopwatch, this highlights your sense of feeling pressured or working against the clock.

If you are a woman dreaming of ticking clocks, such a dream may indicate your biological clock. Dreams that focus on timepieces may also have been measuring the passage of your lifespan and the ticking clock could simply be a reminder that the seconds of your life are ticking away and there is still much for you to do. Watching the clock in your dreams suggests that you need to make time work for you. A clock tower combines this with a phallic form to offer an image of courage and determination. Evoking great occasions, the chimes of a clock tower may relate to a momentous personal or national event, such as a marriage or a coronation.

Clock

(see Bells, Hourglass, Numbers, Time)

Standing still: Impatience for some event soon to come, or feeling spiritually, emotionally, or mentally paralyzed.

Punching a time clock: The danger of becoming a slave to schedules and the agendas of other people.

Is the clock digital, electric, a wristwatch, wind-up, a cuckoo clock, or perhaps even a sundial? Each of these has different associations. Digital clocks show that you are living in the present. Electric clocks and wind-up versions are more antiquated, revealing a stronger focus on times past.

The cuckoo clock expresses

Clock

As a machine, it is linked with ideas of perpetual motion, automatism, mechanism, etc. The clock can represent human destiny, as it is the measurement of your time. Its sound, further, reminds one of the beating of the heart, which identifies it with the emotional side of your personality. It could manifest that your life is governed by artificial routine that has created organized society. In this sense, you should live more casually and think less about time and dates.

If you see a clock that is behind, it is a sign that you have the tendency to leave issues hanging.

If it is fast, it means that you suffer stress and it would be best to relax some.

If the clock shows the exact time, it indicates that you are losing time and that the moment to decide to act has already come; although it could also be a warning to be more punctual.

If it shows that there is one minute to midnight, it denotes your desire to advance a situation that affects you.

If it is stopped, it manifests the status of your emotions.

Dreaming of various clocks with different times is synonymous with disorder and confusion. Lastly, dreaming of a chronometer evidences that you do not have your emotions under control. (See HANDS (of a clock) and TIME)

The regular movement of the clock indicates that everything is going well. Losing it in dreams indicates changes in your life or the possibility of starting a new stage of growth. Listening to the ticks of the clock presages the arrival of bad news.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

Clock 

Time element. Allotted time.Check conditions surrounding the clock and the appearance of the clock.It is talking to you about time, a cycle, age or duration of something. Carl Jung called all circular images a “mandala.” It is one of the most important dream symbols which represent the psychic center of personality.

It is symbolic of wholeness, completeness, and unity of the self.

The clock is a mandala that revolves and it may represent immortality. On the lighter side, when you are dreaming about a clock, time is an obvious issue. You may be currently experiencing anxiety in regard to a time-sensitive situation.

For example, people worry about their “biological clock” running out, or they are concerned about not being “on top of things.” In general, however, this dream may be a reminder that you need to speed up your actions and that time is an important factor. Old dream interpretations say that if you hear a clock strike, (or alarm go off), positive things will happen to you, and if you are winding a clock, you will fall in love!

My Dream Interpretation

Watched, Attacked Or Chased By An Animal

Hiding from or being trapped by animals can suggest you are feeling controlled or threatened by your urges or the emotions or feelings of others.

If the animal is watching you, your unconscious is reminding you not to forget or neglect the instincts that it represents.

If the animal is attacking you, this could indicate that you are in the grip of a rage that you fear you may unleash. Your dream is urging you express or deal with your anger in a controlled way.

If an animal is chasing you in a dream, this may suggest that in real life you are in flight from some area of your personality that wants to be expressed.

If you are trying to find refuge from animals—either by building a defense or running away—this indicates a struggle with instincts that threaten your safety in waking life. In some cases dreams of being threatened or attacked by animals may be telling you that you are repressing your instincts—perhaps being too civilized— and you should try and loosen up more. Being bitten by an animal could indicate aggression from someone close to you or that our own aggressive instincts are not under control. Any threat from a sinister animal suggests fears and doubts you may have about your ability to manage your emotions. See also SURREALISM AND FANTASY.

Animal noises

If you hear animals making sounds in your dream, you need to consider what these sounds mean to you in waking life and then to make a symbolic link. For example, if you hear an animal barking, wailing or whining for attention, these sounds could be calling your attention to the qualities that that particular animal represents to you.

If you hear ominous growling, roaring or cackling, it could reflect pent-up anger either within yourself or another person.

If you hear braying, it could indicate a need to overcome basic animal instincts.

If you hear bleating, you may be taking on new cares and responsibilities that could be positive or negative depending on your attitude towards them. See also SENSES.... The Element Encyclopedia
