There are many different types of magic. The meaning of our dream, will in large part depend on the type of magic within it.
- Magical tricks include sleight of hand techniques, optical illusions, and other fun acts that a magician performs to delight and entertain his audience.
- Sorcery is associated with the power to alter time, matter, and space through the use of supernatural forces. Many cultures associate sorcerous powers with taint, evil, or the devil.
- Witchcraft is commonly associated with herbology, i.e., the creation of various potions, powders, and amulets for healing, protection, coercion, curses, and more.
In addition to type of magic, the interpretation of our dream will also depend on-
- Who is performing the magic,
- Source of the magical powers,
- Purpose of the magic and its end result,
- Location of our magic dream.
Who is Performing Magic in Our Dream
Exercising positive magic on others, indicates that we want to help, or give them support during a difficult time. Performing magic on ourselves signifies transformation, and a sign of better things to come.
If we are using sorcery, it signals confidence in our own powers and abilities. Alternatively, it may capture our wish to easily dispose of our current problems without any true effort or heartache.
- People we know
Friends performing dream magic on us, implies a good support system from the people around us, as well as positive outcomes for our future.
On the other hand, sorcery or darker magics indicate the existence of enemies, or possible impediments to our future goals. We may have an unfriendly or overly competitive workplace; we may be having difficulties with a group of bullies; or we may fear betrayal from someone we know.
Watching a magician signals pleasant future surprises, profitable returns, or an interest in higher education.
An encounter with a dark but unknown dream wizard indicates a worry for our own safety or security, fear of being stalked, or otherwise targeted by an unknown assailant. We may also be overwhelmed with negative encounters from an online bully.
Source of the Magical Powers in Our Dream
- Learned magic
The study of magic suggests that we are willing to put in the time and effort to better ourselves. However, learning black magic may be a warning against vanity, arrogance, pride, or sinful temptation. We may be heedless of others, in our quest to achieve power and fulfill our own selfish goals.
- Transformed into a wizard
If we are magically transformed into a wizard in our dream, then we yearn for strength, power, and confidence. If we are transformed into a dark sorcerer or witch, we may harbor sinful thoughts, or feel tainted and guilty for past actions.
- Given a magical object
If our magic power is attained from an object that is given to us, then we may be expecting a promotion, a proposal, or some other good fortune. The type of magical object will also be significant. For example, an apple suggests love and temptation. We may be entering into a new and passionate relationship, or we may be thinking about cheating on our spouse.
- Found a magical object
If we find a magical object in our dream, then we may need to go on a physical or spiritual journey to discover our own strength and power.
A loss of magic, suggests that we feel overwhelmed with our current situation, and may not have the resources to address upcoming difficulties. Alternatively, we may feel depleted, and not be ready or willing to face a recent traumatic event.
Failure to perform magic reveals a lack of self-confidence, and a fear of not meeting the expectations of others, or fulfilling our promises. We need to start believing in ourselves again, understand and identify our strengths, as well as stop pretending to be somebody that we are not.
Purpose of Our Dream Magic and Its End Result
Magic can be used for good or bad, and can bring about small or significant changes.
- Teaching magic shows a wish to guide others, to change the world, and leave behind a powerful legacy.
- Destructive magics may be a warning against deceit, pride, artifice, and temptations.
- Accompanying a dream wizard means we want to learn and gain knowledge from those who are experienced and wise. We may be seeking an apprenticeship or enrolling for higher education.
- Engaging a wizard in battle indicates that we are struggling with difficult issues in our life. However, we are ready to meet those challenges head-on. We may be working on a difficult project, dealing with a challenging relationship, or be struggling with an internal crisis of faith.
- Imprisoning a sorcerer or witch signals a need to keep our pride, lust, greed, and other baser instincts in check.
- Employing a sorcerer or witch suggests some guilt or regret over a recent action that was taken for selfish goals. We may have tricked or cheated others, caused them pain, suffering, and loss, or otherwise corrupted their life.
Location of Our Magic Dream
Finally, where our dream of magic occurs also carries meaning.
- Our house is safe, comfortable, and secure. Performing magic in our house indicates that we are comfortable with our current actions, and are confident about meeting future challenges. Being visited by a dark sorcerer or witch, signals bad luck, uncertainty, and worry about future loss.
- A familiar place carries a history of past deeds and past experiences. We may be haunted by a previous traumatic event, which we are struggling to process, accept, and live with. Our dream of magic, may be our subconscious wish to banish these past troubling experiences. Seeing a dark sorcerer or witch reveals feelings of guilt or fear that is associated with the dream location.
- An unfamiliar place suggests uncertainty and fear of the unknown. Using magic in unfamiliar locations signify a need to exert greater control over our life and destiny. Meeting a dream wizard in unfamiliar territory means we are seeking guidance and strength, to help us through uncertain times.
