Dream meaning of nymph

To see nymphs bathing in clear water, denotes that passionate desires will find an ecstatic realization. Convivial entertainments will enchant you.

To see them out of their sphere, denotes disappointment with the world.

For a young woman to see them bathing, denotes that she will have great favor and pleasure, but they will not rest strictly within the moral code.

To dream that she impersonates a nymph, is a sign that she is using her attractions for selfish purposes, and thus the undoing of men.

The Greek word vun means ‘bride’ and also ‘doll’. The nymphs accompanying some of the mythic deities are symbolic of the concomitant ideas of those deities.

According to Mircea Eliade, nymphs correspond in essence to running water, fountains, springs, torrents and waterfalls. The best known of the nymphs are the sisters of Thetis, the Nereides, who figure in the expedition of the Argonauts. By virtue of their association with the Element of water, their significance is ambivalent and they may preside equally over birth and fertility or dissolution and death.

Jung, from the psychological standpoint of his theory of individuation, regards the nymph as an independent and fragmentary expression of the feminine character of the unconscious.
