If you see a match in you dream, you may need to ignite or rekindle something in your waking life; a relationship or an interest for instance.
Even more so if the match was unlit as this could signify untapped potential. If you were afraid to light the match then you may be feeling apprehensive about unleashing your talents on the world. Perhaps its time to give it a try and see how it goes- you never know it might just feel right.
If you struck a match in the dark, then good fortune may be on its way. There is a light at the end of the tunnel- you just have to follow it.
Matches are also thought to represent simple or unsophisticated ways of doing something. If you want to start something, perhaps it’s not as complex as you initially thought.
More negatively, matches are associated with destruction and danger. If you are considering doing something that ends in either of these things- it might be wise to contemplate all the consequences of your actions.
If you only had one match in your dream, then you may feel like you only have one go at something in your waking life. You might fear that if you don’t get it right the first time there will be no second chance.
You may not be limited to just one chance- but your opportunities might appear to be reduced right now.
If someone else was playing with matches in your dream, it could represent your mistrust of them. Do you need to distance yourself from them if you don’t believe in what they say or do?
A number of matches could mean that you have the ability to achieve a number of tasks at once. You have all the tools at your disposal to make a big impact on your own or someone else’s life.
