What does dreaming of Dragonfly mean? What do Dragonfly symbolize in dreams?

DRAGONFLY
(see Insects)

If hovering near water, this represents the cooperation between your mental / conscious self and your emotional nature.

Dragonflies are very adaptable, but also territorial. Have you been hovering around your domain too much? Or perhaps you’ve been too flexible in a specific situation.

Dragonflies need warmth and sunlight. On the dream plane, this may represent a similar physical need that manifests as depression or restlessness. Alternatively, it may symbolize the need to be more aware of the conscious, masculine, solar self.

In Japan, these are emblems of happiness and good fortune.

Among Native Americans, the souls of the departed may reside in these creatures. As such, they may be messengers from other realms communicating through your dream (see Ghost).
