Women tend to have more dreams about flowers than men. They may symbolize the woman herself; her budding sexuality; the first sexual act; the flowering of new energies or ideas. Some flowers resemble women’s sexual organs, while many resemble a mandala, the symbol of the Self.
Consider how you feel about flowers in general and what you feel or know about your particular flower. For instance, if you are allergic to flowers, they most likely have a negative meaning for you. Or you may be magically, nonallergic in the dream, in which case flowers may symbolize a part of you that has begun to bloom.
Flowers in a field can reproduce uninhibited emotions and letting your passion run wild, whereas flowers in a bouquet or vase indicate more control or restriction. Dying or dead flowers suggest some aspect of you is dying and needs more attention. Specific flowers and wreaths of flowers are widespread symbols for life after death; this the flower is often a symbol for the soul.
Pregnant women often dream of exotic or richly blooming flowers in all kinds of unusual situations, symbolizing the body’s creative power at this time.
