If you are a sailor in your dream it means that your emotions are a little off and that, therefore, you want to escape from yourself. Restlessness and a thirst for adventure gets you out of a rut, but you must not let the desire get out of hand. On the other hand, considering that the sea represents the unconscious, the dream may be reflecting your desire to explore it or to begin a long journey. (See water , blue , boat , and sea ) Dreaming of a sailor who is ashore predicts a new romance; if you are on a boat, news will come from far away. On the other hand, if a woman dreams of being a sailor, popular belief says this is an omen of bad luck.
