Color Dream Meaning – 30 Common Dreams About Colors

Did you dream about colors? Colors are very subjective and personal; only in some special cases do they carry hidden symbols behind the colors in the dream; for example, a blackbird such as a crow may symbolize bad luck. Also, if you see some generally accepted colors for specific items, they carry less meaning than the “special” colors. For example, seeing a white wedding dress vision can mean less than if you see a black wedding dress. The reason is that “white” is a more generally accepted color for a wedding dress.
