Dream meaning of athlete

To dream that you are an athlete suggests that you have pushed yourself to the limits. You have achieved something which you thought you could not do. Just be careful not to overextend yourself.

To see a famous athlete in your dream refers to a larger than life attitude. Consider the significance of the sport that the athlete is famous for. Famous athletes are also seen as modern day hero archetypes who symbolize champion, courage, and self-sacrifice.

Athletes put time and effort into improving their performance, and in dreams that idea can carry over to any area of life—especially to areas requiring physicality, strength, skill, ability, and energy.
At work you shoulder the load. At school you hit the books and see improvements in your academic performance. In your sex life you put in real effort to be a better lover. You are a sexual athlete.

On the other hand, dreaming about being an athlete can express exhaustion, pushing yourself too hard, or excessive demands.

An athlete can tie in with a person’s self-image or persona, regardless of whether he or she plays in a sport or how long ago it was. This association is especially true of people who were once athletes and their identities are closely tied with sports.

When you dream about an athlete and the emphasis is on a particular part of the body, look up the entry for Body and use the “see also” list.

Sometimes the meaning is found in other details, and an athlete is part of the story in reference to symbolism involving prowess and skill.

    It is not fortunate to dream of an athlete engaged in contests such as racing, pole-vaulting, putting the shot, or wrestling. It predicts a struggle in which you will not be likely to win.
