A dream about menstruation is usually based on a real event that is either announcing itself or is starting up. Fear of pregnancy. In addition, we also have to look at the symbolism of bleeding, which usually indicates fear of injury, but is also a sign that we are coming closer to understanding the secrets of life. Blood stands for the vital and the real. Female bleeding always is a reminder of the vitality and passion that is able to create life.
To dream of menstruation indicates that you are releasing your pent-up tension and worry. It signals an end to your difficult times and the beginning of relaxation. In some cases, this dream may also mean that you are having trouble accepting your feminine side. Also, dreaming of your menstrual cycle when it is not time yet may simply be caused by your anxiety about your cycle (if you’re worried about pregnancy) or it may sometimes mean you will get an early or unexpected period.
1. Fear of maturing.
2. Happiness at growing up.
Dreams of menstruating denote clarity, sensitivity, intuition, and that you are in a powerful time in your life, feeling full and fertile with regards to your projects and relationships. You are feeling connected to source and to your life blood, releasing negative thoughts, beliefs, and physical or emotional toxins that stand in the way of your healthiest expression. You are in the flow of life, fully experiencing the ebbs and flows, and highs and lows. See PMS and Blood.

1- To dream of menstruation may be linking with the creative side of ourselves which can conceive new ideas and can create new and more wonderful ‘children’ out of simple material. We are linking with the mystery of life and with the procreative drive.
2- Since menstruation is such an integral part of the feminine life, it can indicate in a woman’s dream her acceptance of her own emerging sexuality. In a man’s dream however, it can alert him to his fear surrounding relationships and union with the feminine. It can also indicate his own feminine side and his need to understand his own sensitivity.
3- The Cycle of Life and all that is mysterious in women can be symbolised by menstruation. It is only in a patriarchal society that it is seen as unclean.
It is a common dream for women and its interpretation is mostly positive. Dreaming about having your menses can be symbolic of releasing tension and worry. Women are often concerned about their reproductive system. (i.e. pregnancy, sexual relationships or their body’s “time clock.”) Parallel to the menstrual cycle there is a monthly emotional cycle that most women are aware of and experience. During the time of menstruation there is a release of anxiety and an attainment of emotional balance. As a dream symbol it suggests that some difficult times may be over for you and that you can relax. On occasion this dream suggests a loss of energy and disappointment.
