Who doesn’t like to see a rainbow, either in the waking world or the dream world?

Just as it brings a smile to our faces in the waking world it is also a harbinger of good fortune in the dream world.

A rainbow is a universal symbol of hope, luck, fortune, and wishes coming true. They also represent bridges from one place to another and represent to you a turning point in your life where you will find yourself with a pot of gold at the end.

Dreaming About Seeing A Rainbow

A rainbow is always a positive image in a dream (unless there are slight differences that go into more detail below).

If there are relationship troubles plaguing you, these will come to an end. There is always a message of “keep on keeping on” when you see a rainbow in your dreams, or in your waking life.

There may be some rain to contend with still; however, your calm and your joy after the storm is most certainly on its way to you.

Issues in other areas of your life such as career, ambitions, personal development, and issues with the Self bode well when you see a rainbow in your dream. It indicates that good fortune is near and you may just be ready to find your pot of gold at the end of it!

Dreaming of Seeing a White Rainbow

If the rainbow is all white, this is a very special rainbow indeed.

These look the same as regular rainbows, but they are only one color, all white, and radiate like an arc beam of light bowing across the sky.

In the dream world, they represent a connection with your guides and angels coming directly to you with the message that love, joy, and ultimate and unconditional happiness will be on their way to you very soon.

Dreaming of Seeing a Rainbow-Colored Object

If a specific object in your dream is rainbow-colored, and not an actual rainbow, pay attention to the object as much as the rainbow.

You are being told that you need to look at that thing, or that situation, in a different light in order for things to turn out well.

Dreaming About a Grey or Hard-to-See Rainbow

If the rainbow lacks color or appears transparent that it may mean that your fortunes are unlikely to see a change in circumstance in the near future; otherwise, it could mean that the ‘pot of gold’ you are seeking may take more time or effort to reach.

Rainbow dreams are ultimately positive dreams so this type of dream is not necessarily negative. It may simply be a message that the struggle is not over yet and you may need to push through a bit longer to see the results you are after.

Dreaming About A Rainbow That Is Missing Colors/Has Extra Colors

If the rainbow in your dream is missing a color or a bunch of colors, it is suggested to look into the meanings of these colors.

Our dream world is trying to show us the parts of ourselves that we are not allowing enough time for. In order to find the ‘end of the rainbow’, we must first focus on the pieces of our waking life that are missing.

Examining The Colors

  • Red: Lust, passion, and love.
  • Orange: Energy, self-fulfillment, and optimism.
  • Yellow: Optimism, happiness, and adventure.
  • Green: Money, nature, and tranquility.
  • Blue: Creativity, emotional connection, and relaxing feelings.
  • Indigo: Wisdom, justice, fairness, and impartiality.
  • Violet: Intuition, mood, and perception. Often tied to mental health.

If your rainbow has extra colors, this is your dream world expressing the balance you have in your life. These extra colors represent the beautiful gifts you have in your life and show the gratitude we have towards ourselves and the life we have built.

For example, seeing pink in a rainbow could represent that we are grateful for the love and kindness in our waking life.
