Meaning of Colors and Numbers in Dreams According to Freud

Antonia R.Antonia R.

Based on Sigmund Freud's observations, the numbers and colors we dream of can accurately reveal our subconscious thoughts and desires if interpreted.


Red - symbolizes aggression, passion and danger. Since it is the color of blood, red can also be the symbol of life.

Orange - if this color appears in your dream, it means that you haven't been feeling well for a while and you have the need of more positivism in your life.

Yellow - a symbol of intelligence. If dreaming of it, it means that you are pretending or faking something and you have the need to express your true self.

Green - usually it symbolizes nature but if you see it in your dream, it is evidence that you are at a standstill and have need of personal growth.


Gray - this is the color of depression. If witnessed in a dream, this color means that you've lost your way. You feel lost and don't know what path to take.

Blue - if you see another person dressed in blue clothes in a dream, it means that you subconsciously think that you look alike. In general, the color blue in a dream indicates that you need to lay some kind of foundations in your life, to help you count on your intuition.

Purple - symbolizes mystery. Purple things in a dream are things which you know next to nothing about and you have a strong desire to investigate them.

Black - black in your dream is most often linked with death but this does not necessarily mean a physical death. It can be the loss of something very important to you. Black has to do with a lot of grief and suffering that you need to get through.

Brown - the color of earth, it symbolizes discipline.

White - a symbol of innocence, joy and peace.

Golden - this color in a dream shows you that you have a subconscious need for change.

Silver - this color in a dream represents things that you truly care for.



1 - the symbol of unity but loneliness as well.

2 - a symbol of conflict but in some cases, it can denote entering a relationship,

3 - symbolizes perfection. It can also mean that you are the 3rd faction between 2 people who are in conflict.

4 - symbolizes wholeness. It may mean that you are completely finished with your psychological development or development related to another key issue.

5 - the symbol of change. Often it is a sign that you are starting from scratch.

6 - it may symbolize a conflict but also completeness, since it is the sum of 3's.

7 - an indication that you need to change something around you. It may also be a sign of a conflict around you.

8 - symbolizes infinity and an eternally recurring cycle.

9 - a sign that you are ready to be done with something in your life.

0 - the same meaning as the number 1.

If you witness 3-digit or 4-digit numbers in your dream, add them up until you get a single digit number and then look at the meaning.
