The Colors in Your Dreams: What Do They Mean?

Are you on that deserted highway, being chased down by Sasquatch who is driving an orange VW bug again? Dream interpretation / analysis is what people use to help them figure out the meanings of their dreams. It is an old art, going back to the ancient societies of Egypt and Greece, where divine messages were thought to reach you through your dreams. Only people with special powers were able to decipher the hidden wisdom of these messages… Now days anybody can do it… but it doesn’t hurt to think you have special powers.

In more recent years the study of our dreams was taken up by major Psychologists like Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung. These two men had differing views and exactly what the symbols in our dreams meant, but both considered there to be great meaning to be extracted from this area of our subconscious mind. First we’ll look at the meaning of colors in your dreams and then provide you with some basic dream symbolisms to help you unlock just what your subconscious is trying to tell you about the orange bug owning Sasquatch who keeps visiting you.

Color Symbolism in Basic Dream Interpretation

The below color associations in dream interpretation should be thought of as loose guides. First, think about what personal color associations you might have… ie, Blue can generally symbolizes truth and wisdom… but if your high school football team wore blue jerseys and the varsity jocks stuffed you in a locker every morning… you might have a different personal reaction to the color blue.


This is Red

Red can symbolize passion, courage, or your emotional relationships… but it can also be the color of danger. You will need to think about what your personal associations are with red and look at the context of the rest of your dream to find out if you’re seeing love or danger. Often they go hand in hand.

Because black is often regarded as the color of death, its appearance in our dreams may represent the death of old ideas or change.

Understanding the Meaning of the Sasquatch Dream:

First we should look at the elements that are in the dream…

Deserted Highway
To see a highway in your dream, represents your sense of direction and your life’s path. Consider the conditions of the highway which will reveal how much you feel in charge of your life. A smooth, straight highway signifies inner peace, while a winding, bumpy road reflects emotional distress/disharmony.

To see animals in your dream, represents your own physical characteristic, primitive desires, and sexual nature, depending on the qualities of the particular animal. Animals symbolizes the untamed and uncivilized aspects of yourself. Thus, to dream that you are fighting with an animal signifies a hidden part of yourself that you are trying to reject and push back into your subconscious. Refer to the specific animal in your dream.

Orange VW Bug
To dream that you are driving a car, denotes your ambition, your drive and your ability to navigate from one stage of your life to another. Whether you are driving the car or a passenger, is indicative of of your active role or passive role in your life. If you are in the backseat of the car, then it indicates that you are putting yourself down and are allowing others to take over.

Being Chased
To dream that you are being chases, signifies that you are avoiding a situation that you do not think is conquerable. It is often a metaphor for some form of insecurity. In particular, to dream that you are chased by an animal, represents your own unexpressed and unacknowledged anger which is being projected onto that animal.

So… You are feeling alone in life (Deserted Highway) and are avoiding an insecurity (Being chased) about a physical characteristic (By Sasquatch) and are running away from something friendly and social (In an Orange Car).

Your dream could be helping you to see that being self-conscious about yourself is keeping you from making friends.

The above dream symbolisms can be found in the Dream Moods: Dream Dictionary with thousands more symbolisms. Happy dream interpreting!
