The theme of the airplane has one clear message: moving in a certain direction in life.

In other words, airplanes in dreams are all about movement. When you dream about an airplane it often means that the time of stagnation that you are experiencing is over and it’s time to quite literally get moving.

Of course, what the airplane is doing and your role in the dream is very important as the meaning can take different shapes depending on what is happening. An airplane dream can serve as a warning if, for example, someone else is flying the plane and you get a strange feeling that the person is not to be trusted. This is a sign that someone else is controlling your future and it is time to take action on it.

Dreaming About Seeing An Airplane

In your dream when you see an aircraft or airplane the key symbol is one of transportation, or getting from one place to another. The key meaning behind this dream symbol however could be literal, or it could be metaphorical.

You may want to look at upcoming transits to determine where this transportation is taking you.

Seeing the airplane flying above you is a sign that you are eager for things to get moving and ready for the next stage of your journey. This could apply to anything - moving house, a new relationship, and even a new way of thinking.

If you see an airplane flying above and you are chasing after it on the ground, this means you are ready for change but there may be obstacles standing in your way. However, you should take heart because your subconscious is letting you know you aren’t going to let this go!
