Dreaming about a castle is a sign of your view on a situation where you feel the most powerful or in which you believe yourself to have influence. You feel that either you or others are too powerful to be able to lose. You feel that you will get your way, you are most listened to, or that you are in complete control. You are so full of your own importance that you don’t think you need to listen to the ideas or concerns of others.
A dream about a castle may be symbolic of high achievement, a level of strength or being widely recognised. You have a view of yourself that you are the most important person in your circumstance, or that you are the main focus of people’s attention.
Dreams about a castle may be symbolic of a deeper feeling that you cannot submit or be passive, because you are too powerful. You may be fighting against an attack, criticism, or control. You are completely confident of your place as a strong winner.
On the other hand, a castle may be a sign that you are arrogant, accepting nothing but the best of the best. You may be exercising exploitation of power or control. You have become corrupt with power. You feel that either you or others are too important to listen to others. You take all the attention, and demand superior treatment from others. You have a conceited view of yourself that you are just perfect. You look down your nose at others.
In this way, a castle can be symbolic of the fact that you are naively convinced of your power or resourcefulness. You are overly defensive, and have isolated yourself because of your power, or that you have become overly introverted. You have strong internal barriers, and are anxious about another person requiring respect. You’re afraid of offending a customer.
Example: A woman had a dream about being inside a castle. In real life, the woman was in hospital recovering, and had a sense of being treated like royalty during her recovery.
Example 2: A man had a dream about being in a castle belonging to another person. In real life, he felt annoyance because certain members of his family were overly controlling in his life.
Example 3: A young girl had a dream about following a friend out of the castle. In real life, she had realized her introversion and the fact that she had become defensive. Her friend had helped her to lower her defences.
