Dreaming of famous people: What do celebrities mean in dreams?

I saw this post from a facebook friend:

“Now WHY did I dream about naked dancers from the 70s having a Christmas party in a parking lot outside in zero degrees??? And why was Janet Jackson wearing pink mascara in my dream! Errrr yeah! She was at the party too! Damn, night nurse and brandy hot toddies…. Wow!”

And while I’m not going to venture an interpretation of this particular celebrity in this particular dreamer’s psyche – it inspired me to share the term Celebrity from my upcoming book Dream Sight: A Dictionary and Guide to Interpreting Any Dream coming in February.

Celebrities

Universal Landscape: Archetypal Character Aspect; heightened expressions of human traits or qualities.

Dreaming Lens:  Were you with a celebrity intimately or was it a celebrity sighting?  Did you know each other?  What was the connection between you?  Were there other people around?  Did you have sex?  Were you comfortable with the connection that you had?  Did you want more?  Did you want less?

Personal Focus:  Celebrities are the gods and goddesses of modern life and represent archetypal human qualities with which we all identify.  The essence of a particular celebrity’s image can be distilled into a character aspect by the ways in which we perceive them.  Millions of people hold the same projected image of celebrities.  The power of all that magnified perception endows them with superhuman status and removes any sense of the person underneath the persona.

Celebrities show up in our dreams when the stakes are a little higher in terms of what we’re dreaming about.  By providing a more powerful image, the unconscious is telling you to pay more attention.  Approach the interpretation the same way you would anyone in your dreams.  When considering the qualities of the person you are dreaming about, remember to look at everything about them and take into account how you perceive them, including if you are a fan or not or whether they are currently in or out of public favor.  When interpreting a celebrity from a dream, first consider what they embody on a universal level.  Then, and only then, add your personal feelings about them.  When you have done this, you will be clear about what character aspect of yourself you are dreaming of.

In the way that people in our dreams represent character aspects of ourselves, celebrities represent character aspects of the global consciousness as reflected by the idea of archetypes.  Celebrities are our modern-day gods and goddesses.  Dreaming about one of these elite individuals represents a need to explore the qualities they embody as a character aspect, but in a much more powerful way.  In a process identical to working with a character aspect of someone at the pedestrian level, a celebrity’s fame elevates the significance of the meaning you assign to them.  Your unconscious is using the notoriety associated with their public visibility to get your attention.  It is, in effect, providing you with an image that has a chance of making the dream memorable upon waking so that you might more readily take notice of the guidance available to you in the dream.

Sexual dreams with celebrities are common.  Most dreamers assume this is so because of how attractive most of them are.  Additionally, what they do puts them in a position to carry the sexual fantasies of their public.  However, in dream work, sexual dreams with celebrities are common because the drive to integrate archetypal energy is integral to the evolution of our souls.  When the unconscious is encouraging you to own the more powerful parts of your psychic makeup, there is no better way for it to get your attention than through highly charged, sexual imagery.

It is natural for us to need larger-than-life representations of the human experience to motivate us through the various challenges we face managing the stressors and disappointments that are a part of life’s journey.  Our culture’s fascination with the life of celebrities provides us with hope that our own lives have the potential for excitement and glamour, even if this is just a fantasy.  In fact, such fantasies can function as survival mechanisms for many people.

Discovering what a dream involving a celebrity might be telling you is the same as with any character aspect.  Since we are in the realm of archetypal energy when dealing with celebrities, the quality that your dream is inviting you to explore may be very obvious.  A sports figure may be asking you to examine your willingness to play the game of life with more confidence whereas a pop singer may be suggesting that more self-expression is crying out for release.  If you get stuck on how to interpret the meaning of a celebrity’s presence, the technique of using three adjectives to describe them works just as well with the famous as with the ordinary.

    This morning i woke up with a big smile on my face, ’cause… i don’t know i’m just happy ’cause in my dreams BTS’ Jimin, Jungkook and I were classmates and were really close to each other. Well, that’s just a part of my dream, actually alot of things happened like, (1) i was about to go to the rest room but my homeroom teacher when i was Grade 10 came in(I guess he’s our homeroom teacher in my dream) and afterwards none of my classmates is paying attention on him, some of the are standing that’s why he decided to walk out the classroom but i shouted as if my part of the class officer, my classmates obeyed me and i think that’s the end of that scene. (2) A girl that i don’t know stole my seat, i kept telling her that it’s my seat, but she kept on insisting that’s it’s hers (3) Jimin and I were chatting and were really close to each other… i looked at the windows and the korean students (I think visitors of our school?) wearing costumes, cause they’re going to perform. And then i saw one kid that kinda look and a like Jungkook, and i looked to jungkook near the window sitting on the floor with some classmates and i told him that the kid outside looks like him. And then Jimin suddenly disappeared from the scene and was talking to jungkook the visitors was about to start their performance at the other room then the students of that room started to go outside and i saw familiar faces. Alot of things happened after that. (4) I came back to our classroom a there’s this pink book )that has a butterfly on it’s cover) for kids that i kept on reading. And then i held my tablet and started taking selfie’s, while my classmates at my side watching me pose. The next i remember is that i was amaze with the camera effects. (4) My former classmate(Were kinda close, because of Got7’s Mark) popped up in my dreams, and i think she told me that she’s receiveing money from her mother’s mini store. END.

    Sorry for my english… i’m not good at it.

    I had a dream that a married namjoon and I became a rapper too… Also in my dream Jin and I were best friends and we both cooked for all the boys. It was short and weird. I keep having it too, about every other night. It’s very confusing cause I don’t always remember all of it in the morning

    I had a dream about the leader singer from a band (My Chemical Romance). Me and Gerard Way had a kind of romantic relationship but it was complicated. Also I’ve had a dream about Harry Styles, Gerard Butler, and David Tennant, even Harry Potter ( not Daniel Radcliffe, Harry Potter )

    I woke up today totally heartbroken because I dreamt about meeting Brian May and Roger Taylor (pairing Maylor) intimately and they were so nice and kind. We talked for a bit and then they invited me to be in a threesome with me. Just as we were about to go on adventures, I woke up in a cold and lonely bed. I do not identify myself as polymorous, but bi. There were no women present in my dream. This dream might represent now much I love this pairing (Maylor) and maybe how much I long for new adventures and breaking free from the routine and get summer vacation.

    I had a dream last night that I met Luke Hemmings… I got a selfie with him and hugged him. He was so sweet and I’m not even a Luke girl in the 5sosfam (but I love him equally as I do the others) and I woke up in tears. I even dreamed that Michael Clifford was my boyfriend in that same dream.. Michael and I were hugging and kissing and being all cute, and then we ran outside to find my cat because she ran away in the dream. That was weird. I hope this means I might meet 5sos in the future, I’d cry my eyes out lol.

    Last night I had a dream that I was dating my all time favorite kpop singer/rapper Chanyeol from EXO. It was a really unexpected dream but it felt so realistic tho. I had a dream we were partying together and when we went home we cooked a bunch of Korean dishes and enjoying our time together. I also had a dream he kissed me on my cheek but when i woke up I felt uncomfortable about it because I have a boyfriend whom i love so much and wouldnt want any other guy enjoying their time witg me except my boyfriend. But yeah i was happy i saw my favorite korean celebrity tho just not the kissing part

    I had a dream where Heath Ledger came seeking me out in my dream. We talked about life and German Culture, and I told him I’m italian. I remember him showing me that I was married, and had a baby boy, I was about to say what the name was, but it was cut off. Kinda weird because how real it felt
