To see or eat an artichoke in your dream suggests that you need to get to the heart of something.

Artichokes are also thought to be linked to your potential- perhaps you aren’t reaching it because you are holding back or hiding some aspect of yourself.

Something you see as an impossible or dauting situation is not as bad as you initially thought so try not to panic and think things through logically.

The dream could be telling you to remove all the layers of obstacles that are in your way and solve a problem from the core. Everything else is superfluous so ignore it.

Another interpretation is secret sorrow. Artichokes represent the separation of you from a loved one. If you have had to let go of someone you care about lately, this could be why you dreamed of this particular vegetable.

The sorrow in your heart might be so deeply buried that you are no longer aware of it. Perhaps you need to bring these feelings to the surface to examine them and to ultimately let them go. They serve no purpose and simply mean that you are holding onto negative energy. Make room for something more positive.

If you were cooking artichokes in your dream- this suggests that you are a quick thinker in difficult situations. Perhaps you need to put this skill to good use in your waking hours if other people are failing to see a solution.

If you were trying to feed a child an artichoke and they refused it, you may experience some difficulties in the near future- namely some resistance from others. If this is the case, you may just need to persevere if you truly believe in what you are offering.

It’s possible you fear being seen- you prefer to hide away and keep to yourself. Is it time that you worked on this lack of self confidence as you might be missing out on meaningful relationships and opportunities?
