The earthquake is a clear symbol linked to the lack of stability and chaos in life. A nightmare may occur especially in crisis moments in which the dreamer feels that one "loses ground under their feet" or "that everything is falling apart". It is a consolation that the quake will eventually pass and life will return to normal - therefore, patience and dignity are recommended in even the most difficult matters of love or finance.
- According to some dream books, the earthquake for the sick foretells deterioration of health and even death.
- Seeing an earthquake is a warning to behave rightly and according to your conscience.
- If you survived an earthquake in your dream, you should prepare for significant changes.
- Losses caused by an earthquake in a dream, for example a destroyed house or some objects, herald real losses, often independent of the dreamer.
