Measure, Dream Interpretation

A measure in dreams – whether of capacity, length or weight – suggests a comparison, often against some kind of spiritual standard.

Psychological / emotional perspective: Emotionally, when we attempt to find some kind of tranquility we will measure it against previous experience. In dreams this may come across as an overflowing cup, gauge or measuring stick.

Material aspects: In waking life, we will try to measure our performance against correct practice or a set standard. This will surface in dreams with actual physical instruments of measurement such as rulers, scales and other measuring devices.

To be measuring standards is to be applying a preset code of behaviour. You might also like to consult the entries for cup, scales and weighing / weight for further clarification.

(Foot; Inch; Span; Spread; Width) In a dream, a measure or any of its related elements means travels. Measuring a wall with the span of one’s hand in a dream means that he may travel to a nearby town. Ifhe measures the same distance on the ground in a dream, it means that he may travel to a distant place.

If one measures the ground up to two arms length in a dream, it means that he will attend the pilgrimage in Mecca.

If one measures a house or a shop with his thumb in a dream, it means that he may buy that place.

(Percentage; Proportion; Ratio) A measure in a dream represents a magician, a thief, trickery, or wasting money. (Also see Scale; Scale beam; Unit of weight; Weight)

(Weight) In a dream, a measured weight represents guidance, knowledge, wisdom, a wife, profits, distress, trouble, or poverty. (Also see Weight)
