The meaning of the dream symbol: Night

Night is a common symbol of the unconscious; the 'dark' other side of your personality; the primitive or negative (‘evil’) aspects of yourself.
A night journey, and especially a sea journey, may symbolize a ’journey’ into the unconscious, or the process of individuation, or its second phase.

The complex symbolism of night involves mystery, danger and erotic seduction. Accordingly, when our dream landscape takes on a nighttime flavor, we may be alluding to darker and decisively concealed aspects of own nature. Hence, the image of night may allow for a smooth reappearance of repressed desires and impulses. Furthermore, this escape from the scrutiny and exposure of light, may reveal a creative faculty which has been ignored, or otherwise pushed aside, by the pressures of our day to day reality. Hence, in our dream, the star-filled skies of night, may provide a safe haven for our ancient and articulate passions, alive and well in the pool of our unconscious memory.
