Dreaming of Shooting Stars – 40 Types & Their Interpretations

In your dream of shooting stars, if you made a wish, it predicts you’ll soon fulfill your long-awaited desires. If you don’t make a wish, you don’t have enough goals or can’t reach them in conscious hours.

Your action and the presence of other things in your dream have a huge impact on your dream interpretation. So, if you’re ready to find yours, let’s step on the gas…

1. Dreaming of a shooting star and making a wish

So many of us believe that if we wish upon a shooting star, it will come true. Similarly, when you dream of the same plot, it is most likely to come true.

You’re probably wishing for something for a long time. Now, your spiritual self tells you that you’ll get it soon.

2. Dream of seeing a lot of meteor showers

Seeing a large number of meteor showers together is truly a sight, isn’t it?

But how you feel after seeing this in your dream is the real deal. If you feel impressed, it signifies that you’ll get some fortunes soon. But if you feel anxious or overwhelmed, it’s a sign to focus on a specific desire.

3. Dream to see a shooting star during fireworks

Fireworks and shooting stars are quite similar. So seeing them together in your dream is a sort of divine intervention.

You are focused on a bigger goal in life and wish to accomplish it. Your mind tells you ways to reach that goal and how to be successful.

4. Dream of seeing shooting stars and UFOs

Since UFOs are considered to be mysterious and unknown, seeing them with a shooting star can imply you have hidden talents that even you’re not aware of.

It’s time to explore yourself, even if others feel shocked or surprised by your change. Use your talents and see how far you can go.

5. Dream of many shooting stars

If you dream of a lot of shooting stars together, it signifies that you have many unfulfilled desires and you wish to achieve.

Though others you are greedy, you know that you’re energetic and focused. But always think of what you wish to accomplish before doing the job.

6. Dream of shooting stars slowly progressing

This dream signifies that you can only fulfill your wish thrice before the shooting star slowly passes by you. Perhaps you want to get out of a tough situation in life.

This dream tells you that you have the strength and mindset to do so.

7. Dream of exploding shooting star

This is a bad omen in the dream realm. It implies that your mind is plagued with negativity and fear.

You might not wish to admit it but you know deep inside that you won’t be able to achieve your goal completely. If a woman has this dream, it might indicate pregnancy.

8. Dream of falling shooting stars

When a shooting star falls in your dream, it means that you must keep your guard up. Something unexpected and even unpleasant will happen, so you must stay prepared.

Even if things are going really well currently, they might change in the long run. 

9. Dream of seeing a shooting star with a favorite person

Ah, seeing the beautiful shooting stars with your favorite person seems so romantic, right? Even in your dreams, this symbolizes that you are a very passionate and romantic person.

Unfortunately, this also symbolizes that your love may be temporary since shooting stars fly by quickly and are temporary themselves.

10. Dream of lovers and meteor showers

This dream is also a romantic one but again, it does not imply anything pleasant.

It is an omen that something very unhappy will happen to your relationships like a hasty separation or a betrayal from your lover. The more meteor showers you see, the greater your shock will be, so be careful.

11. Dream of shooting star flows through the starry sky

A starry sky can heal even the most wounded hearts. Such a sky in your dreams signifies hope and longing.

12. Dream of shooting stars falls and burns

13. Dream to see the aurora and shooting stars

The aurora is a breathtaking sight but you can’t see it unless you’re in a specific place and at a specific time. So dreaming of the aurora along with the shooting stars is a good indication that your dreams will come true.

14. Dream of a red shooting star

Even though red is the color of love, a red shooting star isn’t happy news. It symbolizes that you and your partner will have problems in your love life. In the worst case, you might even be forced to break up.

If you are a woman, control your emotions. If you’re a man, stay cautious of casual comments.

15. Shooting stars in your first dream

20. Dream of not making a wish on a shooting star

We all love wishing when we see a shooting star fly by, but if you’re one of the rare ones who doesn’t do that even in dreams, it signifies that you don’t have enough goals or ambitions in life.

A word from ThePleasantDream

Shooting stars have been romanticized forever. But, all such dreams don’t bring positive news. So, never judge such dreams at their face value.

Furthermore, whether you see a shooting star in reality or in dreams, don’t bet your future on these raging balls of flame. You’ll succeed in your life only if you stay true to yourself and your journey.

So, whether you receive a positive or negative oracle from your dreams, don’t forget that you have the power to make or break your life. 

Don’t stop fighting for more till the end of time and never forget to enjoy this beautiful journey.

…because YOU are far more beautiful than any shooting star!
