The appearance of a moth in a dream usually refers to the mystery or a delicate matter which you hide from the world.
- Because the moth flies mindlessly to the light, the fantasy reflects the uncontrollable desire or lust, which you cannot stop. For those in a relationship it is, for example, a warning against embroiling yourself into an affair or flirt. For others it may be a warning against too frequent succumbing to such temptations as sweets, alcohol and cigarettes. Nightmares in which the moth dies in a flame indicate that the most. A dream in which the moth flies into the light can also symbolize self-purification and self-sacrifice.
- If you see a beautiful moth which flew into your room, this is the announcement of getting in touch with a mysterious, but sensitive and delicate person.
- If you dream that you are a moth, it reflects your freedom, carelessness and artistic vision.
- Killing a moth in a dream refers to killing your sensitivity; most delicate desires. In another context the nightmare applies to your aggression towards a delicate person.
- Dead moth is a symbol of failure, tattered dreams and depression.
- Dreams, where the moth appears regularly may symbolize the soul of a deceased person.
- The moth as a night butterfly can also be associated with the symbolism of the creature - the metamorphosis.
