Free and Professional Dream Analysis and What Dreams Mean
Dried Up and Wilted Flowers
My husband opens his hand to reveal dried roses, as flowers that have wilted and dried up. We both seemed to be confused.
Main Life Issues:
Feeling suspicious about husband.
Someone sees that something beautiful has died.
Roses: Often a symbol of love, like getting roses on Valentines’ Day.
An open hand: A metaphor of showing what is there, being willing to share.
Dried up flowers: Something lifeless; items past their prime. Also a metaphor for what is no longer fresh and appealing. However, if you keep dried flowers as a keepsake (such as pressed flowers in a book), they can be a metaphor of memories related to love and to what one cherishes.
What it Means:
It's a story about a couple viewing something that was once beautiful but is no longer so. The wilted flowers sound like a metaphor for a slow ending and a slow demise of your relationship, as something that no longer works.
In real life you feel suspicious of your husband, so the dream may reflect your fears the that relationship has dried up, from your husband’s point of view. Or, it may mirror how you actually feel about the relationship.
Bottom Line: This dream depicts the current situation between you and your husband, or your fears about the current state of the relationship. However, the future depends on the choices you both make such being willing to communicate, airing what you both think and feel, telling the truth about what you need and want, and seeing where that takes you.
