Whether you're rolling around in a bed covered in hundred-dollar bills or you're darting around your house turning over furniture and checking your coat pockets for a misplaced $20, your money dreams are begging to be decoded. After all, money is representative of more than just cold-hard cash or purchasing power in real life as well as in your unconscious slumber, and it can be helpful to examine how money appears in your dreams and what it might mean.
Keep in mind that dreams about money aren't always about money. Money in dreams can represent concepts like love, time, or energy, according to Exemplore. For example, if you're constantly giving away money in your dreams maybe you're feeling emotionally depleted or like you're giving too much of your time and energy to others. It's worth considering what the dream money could represent in your awake life.
You receive a lot of money
Receiving a hefty sum of money can seem like an omen of upcoming prosperity (wouldn't that be nice?) but it can often be a reflection of a dreamer's current state of affairs, according to Exemplore. If you're feeling rich in friends, happiness, or self-confidence in real life, that may manifest in your dreams in this way.
You lend someone money
Lending someone money in a dream is a way of lending them your time, energy, or concern, according to Aunty Flo. Perhaps you're worried about a friend who's going through a rough time or making some questionable decisions in their career or romantic life. If you dream about lending them money it could be your subconscious way of paying them extra care and attention.
You find money
You know that unmistakable feeling where you reach into your jeans pocket and feel the crisp folded edges of paper. You pull your hand from the pocket and you're holding a bill — it could be $5 or $20, it doesn't matter all that much — and you feel instantly excited by your find. Somewhere in the back of your mind you know that you must've previously misplaced this money, and that this discovery means you're breaking even and not really gaining anything, but it feels like a gain nonetheless, and you're ecstatic about your discovery. Well, when you find money in dreams, that same sense of excitement and happiness applies. Finding money in a dream signifies changes for the better on the horizon, according to My Dream Symbolism, as well as optimism for the future.
You win money
Winning money in a dream might feel like you're about to hit the jackpot when you're awake, but it's not necessarily a sign of monetary gains to come. Instead, winning money can indicate that you feel lucky and happy in your current state, according to My Dream Symbolism.
You lose money
If you find yourself losing money in a dream, it might be a sign that something's up in your real-life finances. It could signal that you feel out of control of your finances, according to Her Money, or it could also represent a general worry that things in your life are beyond your control.
You borrow money
Need to borrow money in a dream? It may mean you need to borrow time or energy in real life. Borrowing money in a dream can mean that you feel you've spread yourself too thin, according to Exemplore. It could be a sign that you should reevaluate your priorities and what you're dedicating your time to.
You steal money
If you're stealing money it could be a sign that you feel you're willing to do whatever it takes to get what you want, according to My Dream Symbolism. How you feel about having stollen the dream-money could also be an indication as to how you feel about going to extreme measures to get something done in real life... it's worth thinking about.
You find stolen money
If you find money that you know was stolen in your dream, you might be dealing with some kind of moral dilemma in another part of your life, according to Aunty Flo. It's all about knowing something might be wrong, and having to consider what decision to make when you're in a pickle. If you keep having dreams like this, try to sort out what dilemma you need to solve in real life.
You spend a lot of money
Spending a lot of money in a dream can be a sign that you're a reckless spender in real life, too, according to Aunty Flo. It could be your subconscious's way of telling you that you need to be more careful and considerate of the purchases you're making daily that might be setting you back from saving for larger goals.
