Cool colors consist of the blues, greens, and violets. They are the colors that make us feel calm, relaxed, like a cool breeze blowing over us.
In dream interpretation we can use the following examples as guides to interpreting the cool colors. But remember, always, that every symbol in a dream (of whatever color) must be interpreted first through our personal layers. And secondly, that every symbol is relative to every other symbol, similar to interpreting cards in a spread.
OK, let’s now explore the cool colors and their meanings in dreams.
Blue. Calmness, spirituality, heaven, truth, wisdom, eternity, spirituality. Dreaming of blue can indicate acceptance of your present situation. In a play on words, blue can indicate the dreamer is “feeling blue.” Another play on words can indicate “true blue,” or loyalty and devotion.
Deep rich blue. Awakened spirituality. Could mean a person who has found their life’s work or spiritual goals.
Light blue. A beginner, a novice on the religious or spiritual path. Someone just starting to develop spiritual qualities.
Blue green. Combines healing power of green, and the spirituality of blue. This color could indicate a spiritual teacher or healer.
Blue violet. Very high spiritual aspirations. Someone trustworthy and peaceful by nature.
Blue gray. Some fear associated with religious feelings.
Muddy blue. Negativity and depression surrounding spiritual aspirations. Could indicate someone who is emotionally feeling “blue,” or someone having “the blues.”
Green. This color is associated with nature, and spring time, healing. Natural healers are associated with the color green. So dreaming of green can mean new beginnings, rebirth, or resurrection. Dream messages also frequently involve plays on words. So this color could indicate getting the “green light” to do something.
Dark green. Maturity, mellowing, filled with wisdom, compassion, patience, grace.
Light green. New growth, healing, youth, healthy, vitality, the exuberance of youth.
Pale green. Sympathy or immaturity.
Blue green. Trustworthy, devoted, could indicate a spiritual teacher.
Brownish green. Materialism, greed.
Gray green. Envy, possibly deceit, fear.
Moss green. Maturity, wisdom and patience.
Olive drab green. Dullness, sameness, routine. Associated with work uniforms, could mean the uniformity of attitude.
Yellow green. Deceit, cowardice, could indicate a liar.
Purple. The darker shade is associated with royalty, while the lighter shade is associated with penance. In general, purple means an introspective look at oneself. So, depending on shade, discover if you see yourself as a queen or if you are feeling the need to punish yourself.
Pale purple. Undeveloped feelings of spirituality. A promise of things to come.
Deep purple. Oneness with the Creator. Deep devotion, love and wisdom, powerful healing abilities, great spiritual powers.
Violet. High spirituality, devotion, religious aspirations. Could mean the dreamer feels a sense of peace with her or himself.
Pinkish lavender. Beginning feelings of spiritual love, affection, tenderness, devotion, gentleness. Not fully developed feelings.
So we learn that colors really show our emotional states at the time of our dreams. Colors have such a strong influence on us, that their names have entered our language through the use of such phrases as “green with envy,” “seeing red,” or “having the blues,” among others.
Suggestion: When recording your dreams, take out your pastels or watercolors and put colors into them, for an added layer of meaning.
