The self we assume in our dreams or fantasy, the unconscious urge our being has to survive personal death.
Since they are attracted to the light, moths come as messengers of personal transformation, summoning you to blossom closer to spintual light. They may represent the transformation of the soul.
A symbol of transient wealth or something that is consuming your valuables, Ps. 39:11
The moth symbolizes the self, but perhaps in its darker, more worldly sense. As the butterfly symbolizes the soul, so the moth symbolizes spirit trapped in the physical realms.
Psychological / emotional perspective: The moth symbolizes the darker side of us that uses fantasy.
The moth emerging from darkness signifies our need to recognize this shadowy self so that we can survive difficulties unscathed.
Material aspects: The moth is largely associated with nighttime and therefore connects with the hidden side of our nature. Also, because the moth can be self-destructive when there is light around, it may highlight personal weakness. It also tends to symbolize our dream self and the more transient side of our personality – that part that finds difficulty in settling to proper tasks.
Vision: A man dreaming about a moth flying about: be more carefid in your choice of female friendships. Wearing moth- eaten garments: your present situation is precarious. Only- determination will bring about positive changes. See Clothes.
Depth Psychology: See Insects, Vermin.
Subversive emotions and feelings. See Light.
Moths in dreams symbolize minor irritations and damage that remains unseen until it is too late.
Dreams of a moth represent that you have been hopelessly drawn to passionate flings and/or dangerous situations like a moth to a flame being burned by your compulsive desires. You are looking for light, love and inspiration.
To see a moth in a dream, small worries will lash you into hurried contracts, which will prove unsatisfactory. Quarrels of a domestic nature are prognosticated.
A moth is not very attractive, desirable, or known for many positive attributes. There is the story of a moth being attracted to the flame, which got to close to the flame and was destroyed.
The moth in your dream may be pointing out a personal weakness or may be bringing to light a deception in your life. It could be suggesting that you are being lead to a place where you will be hurt unless you recognize the danger. Since dreams are very rarely literal, the danger could be emotional or psychological, not necessarily physical.
