Dream meaning of Adam and Eve

To dream of Adam and Eve, foretells that some eventful occasion will rob you of the hope of success in your affairs.

To see them in the garden, Adam dressed in his fig leaf, but Eve perfectly nude save for an Oriental colored serpent ornamenting her waist and abdomen, signifies that treachery and ill faith will combine to overthrow your fortune.

To see or hear Eve conversing with the serpent, foretells that artful women will reduce you to the loss of fortune and reputation.

SYMBOLISM SYMBOLISM
Adam = Primordial Man. The name is derived from the Hebrew adama ( = earth). G. G. Scholem, in On the Kabbalah and its Symbolism (London, 1965), states that, initially, Adam is conceived as ‘a vast representation of the power of the universe’, which is concentrated in him. Hence the equation macrocosm = microcosm. In both the Bible and the platonic doctrine of the androgyne, Eve appears as an excision of the first being, which integrated sexual duality. Do the tree and the serpent reproduce the same duality on another symbolic plane? Or do they express a different duality to that contained in the first human couple, which is the symbol of the internal and external excision of the living being?

Eve, in the rôle of persuader, appears as a mediator between the serpent (the source of evil, which William Blake likened to energy) and man, who would have been free and indifferent, and who would have ‘fallen’ only under pressure.

To see either Adam or Eve in your dream is a good omen for some cherished plan.
If you spoke to them or they to you, you will encounter a delay in the realization of your wishes, but the delay will be very temporary, so cultivate patience.
If you saw Adam and Eve together in your dream you’ll be tremendously lucky.
