Folklore traditions have found symbolic meaning in dreams for about as long as people have been dreaming. Whether you believe in the truth of these symbols, it's still fun to examine what the weird nighttime thoughts in your head might mean. With this in mind, the good omens to see in dreams, according to old wives' tales, are incredibly fascinating. Animals, plant life, and even weird situations may have very different meanings, at least in these old traditions.
Most of these positive dream omens are from the natural world, and they foretell events such as births, positive health, or changes in fortune. I don't know what to say if you dream about missing a text on your iPhone, or suddenly gaining a thousand new Insta followers, because these old-timey dream traditions don't really cover social media or other tech. (Although I'm sure some modern dream interpreters can do just that.) But there's something pleasant about the focus on the natural world and simple objects in these dream symbols. Perhaps it is easy to find a mystical side to the whole experience of dreaming, which is pretty darn weird when you think about it. Read on to see what those strange things in your dreams just might mean.
