Is there a circumstance in your life that you really have no control over? Ice in your dreams can represent how you feel about this state you are in. You may be worried that something is hanging over your head, like a dangerous icicle, precarious, capable of falling at any moment. You may not be able to do anything about your circumstances, but you can try to think about them in a more positive way.

Confidence, faith, fearlessness

Ice is usually a fairly solid item, but it also melts quite easily. You shouldn’t count on it remaining solid forever. Ice in your dreams could symbolically represent your sense of self-confidence, or a situation, that maybe shouldn’t be so safe. You may feel solid as a rock, but consider your circumstances and dig deeper… is there something missing? Are you putting yourself in a dangerous situation by being so sure?

Positive changes, opening paths

On the other hand, melting ice in your dream can be a good sign. Saying that someone is unfreezing can mean that they are relaxing. This could be representative of difficult situations becoming easier, a locked form being released (an icy stream thawing in spring), or a typically cold and stiff person warming up and becoming easier to handle. to work.

Caution, Consciousness, Discretion

Traffic accidents caused by ice are frequent. Puddles freeze and it’s easy to slip and fall on foot too. Anyone who lives in a climate where the weather turns to snow and ice can attest that ice can be both annoying and dangerous. Did you feel like the ice in your dream was a dangerous slip hazard? Perhaps you are afraid of “slipping” in some area of ​​your life.

Your ice dream may be an indication that you need to be on alert for potential dangers. You may or may not see them coming, but you should proceed with caution either way. “Some say the world will end in fire, others say in ice.

Types of ice in dreams

Now that we have covered some common themes that it can represent, let’s take a look at some of the different types of ice that can be found in a dream.

Frozen lakes, rivers, streams, and other bodies of water

Dreaming of bodies of water often represents your current emotional state. It is important to consider the state of the water when evaluating what it could mean. A river or stream can symbolize the flow of something in your life, and if you see it still frozen in a dream, that could suggest some kind of blockage or obstacle in your way. A frozen lake or ocean can mean you feel isolated or frustrated.

frozen road

Ice can make driving quite treacherous. Dreaming of an icy road can suggest that you subconsciously know that there are dangers ahead. Driving on ice can also be slow, and in this way you can feel hindered in your way, moving towards your goals more slowly than you would like. Wrecking a car on an icy road in a dream can mean that you feel out of control about your current situation. 


Icicles can look beautiful decorating the edge of a roof, but they sure can be hit or miss. The nature of melting ice means that they can come down at any moment, and you don’t want to be under one when it falls! Seeing icicles in your dreams can represent dangers, both in real and imaginary life.

It is common to see icicles in large clusters along the branches or eaves of roofs. Icicle clusters could represent minor irritations in your life. But the nice thing about icicles is that they eventually melt and disappear, and so will those irritations.

ice sculpture

An ice sculpture is a beautiful and transitory piece of art. It would be impossible to keep it in its original state forever, and this makes it even more special. If you dream of an ice sculpture, you are probably feeling this way about something or someone, and you are afraid that it will disappear. It could be a relationship, a pet, a job, a house, a state of mind… Is there something in your life that you fear losing? Do you fear the death of a loved one? Are you particularly happy right now and do you fear the end of this happy time?


Dreaming of a glacier could represent negative feelings or circumstances in your life that seem insurmountable. It looks huge and overbearing, as if you have a glacier literally in your path. You may feel that it is impossible to overcome or improve. Is there an option you haven’t considered yet? Glaciers are also known to be quite slow.
