Raining Pumpkins

Jessica had a very odd dream that the world ended abruptly on Halloween.

"Samuel L Jackson was apart of [the] matrix and protected me, Matthias was laying on my bed watching tv, and Kayla and my dad were running around screaming."

"As I looked out my window everything looked like a perfect day, but then I walked outside and pumpkins were falling from the sky and turning it gray. I decided to wake up and re-cooperate. True story."

"Well I was really worried, but I pretended not to care what was going on, and I appreciated Samuel trying to protect me but I didn't believe he could. Also there was one part where I looked outside my window and everything looked perfect and safe but when I stepped up it was all screwed up. I have these weird dreams all time. Oh and Matthias didn't even care..haha he was watching T.V the whole time."

Me: What does the color gray mean to you? What does a gray sky remind you of?
Jessica: Gray to me feels neutral. Like...plain...simple. It reminds me of accepting depression and being neutral about it.


To dream of the apocalypse, signifies an emotional and dramatic change taken place within. The dream may also indicate the end of one kind of lifestyle and the beginning of another.

To dream of Halloween, signifies death and the underworld. Halloween also represents the temporary adoption of a new persona where you feel less inhibited and more comfortable to freely express yourself.

To dream that you are being protected or need protection, indicates that you are feeling helpless in some situation. Life's difficulties has made you dependable on others. You need to start taking charge of the situation.

To see a pumpkin in your dream, implies your openness and your receptiveness to new ideas and experiences. A pumpkin is also symbolic of female sexuality. Alternatively, the dream may relate to the popular fairy tale of Cinderella where a carriage turns back into a pumpkin. In this regard, a pumpkin may represent some situation in which time is running out.

To dream about the weather, signifies your emotional state of mind. Stormy or windy weather implies conflict and aggression. Rain and hail represents depression and sadness. And rainbows and sunshine signify hope and happiness. Alternatively, weather may be a pun on "whether" you should do this or that. Perhaps you are trying to decide between two options.

To look up at the clear blue sky in your dream, denotes hope, possibilities, creativity, peace and freedom of expression. As the saying goes "the sky's the limit." If the sky is cloudy and overcast, then it foretells of sadness and trouble.

To dream that the sky is falling, represents your fear of the unknown. You feel that your hopes and dreams have been shattered. Perhaps you have been too idealistic and the dream is an attempt to bring you back to reality.

To dream that something is falling out of the sky, signifies your pessimistic attitude. You are losing perspective on a situation. If the object is getting closer and casting a shadow on you, then it indicates that you are being ignorant about some situation. You need to get out from under the shadow and gain a different perspective on things.

Dreams like this can be overpowering and confusing. There are a lot of powerful symbols in this dream and a few familiar people, which helps figure out the meaning. Keep in mind that the best interpreter for a dream is the dreamer.

After reading what the symbols mean and the events and reactions of the dream, it sounds like you're going through some inner turmoil. You may be depressed about something or unsure of a decision to be made. An apocalypse scenario on Halloween is almost overkill, representing an ending to a habit, outlook, or attitude within and your desire to show the world a newer, better you.

Samuel L Jackson may be a man you consider strong and protecting, whom you may have seen recently, or are a fan of. Your unconscious needed a strong figure other than the people you depend on most- your boyfriend, Kayla, and your dad. While you depend on them for support, this dream may reflect some unconfronted fears of their possible reactions to whatever change or decision you are about to make. You fear your boyfriend won't care either way; that he will still be content with you. Alternatively you may fear him neglecting you afterwards. You may fear that Kayla and your dad will freak out and will not be as supportive as you want them to be. You needed Mr. Jackson in your dream because in real life you want to be sure there is someone who will always have your back. Alternatively, you're unsure of your support group's actions during a crisis.

Looking on the possibility of this change, you feel hopeful, but you fear the unknown or fear something going wrong. The meaning of gray to you makes me believe you are pessimistic about this change or decision and will fall right back into bad habits, attitude, or depression, staying neutral, and accepting it. Almost expecting things to go wrong. I suggest you be confident and have more faith in your decisions and expect the best. The world and those close will appreciate a better you.

I hope I'm close and that this helps. :)

If I even have any readers, know that this is my first attempt at interpreting someone ELSE's dream. I dunno how close I am but it's fun trying to figure out a puzzle.
