It’s a widely accepted fact that the objects or people in a dream play a vital role in interpreting the dream. In most cases, the objects in the dream are a reflection of what you’re going through at that particular moment in time or a reflection of the mental state which you are.
Onions are generally believed to indicate tears, layers, memories, disguises, jealousy or evil spirits.
Dreaming about onions doesn’t necessarily mean you’re feeling all these, it could also mean that someone else is having these kinds of feelings towards you, and your subconscious is trying to warn you about it.
Meaning & Interpretation
The meanings attributed to onions weren’t fabricated; they’re as a result of a deep analysis of its structure and components.
All onions have several layers which are dry and sometimes scaly, and when you cut them they make your eye teary.
Dreams about onions are not very common, but in case you have them, they could mean either of the following:
It could be an indication that you have layered emotions and mood swings.
It may not be a really evident feeling but deep down you could be having mixed feelings about something or about what you’re going through, and just like there are tears when cutting an onion, you could be in a really nice and happy mood, but the next moment your mood could just change.
If you’re out there and you’re going through something like this you need to know that you are not alone, what you’re experiencing is something only you can fully help yourself on, you should try to meditate and balance your mind.
Taking control of your emotions is the only way for you to be free of what you’re experiencing.
Onions could also be an indication of a bad memory, onions make you cry, so dreaming about them may mean you’ve experienced something in your life, whether long ago or recently that drives you to tears whenever you think of it.
Memories will always be there, but that doesn’t mean you should let them hunt you.
Whatever it is that happened before, however sad as it may be, you can rise above it, your memories shouldn’t control you, you should control it. It is okay to remember the past, but that doesn’t mean you should succumb to them.
Everyone has experienced something we would rather have avoided in the past but if we keep dragging it with us we’re never really done experiencing the heartbreak or sadness it caused when we first experienced it.
The best way to deal with these bad memories is to come to terms with it, accept the fact that what has happened has happened, learn from it if it’s a mistake of yours that caused it and move on, mistakes make us better!
While if it’s the memory of a loved one that died, I’m sure that person wouldn’t want you sad for the rest of your life, he/she would want you to live the best life possible; you shouldn’t cry over their deaths instead you should celebrate the life they lived because they’re at peace.
Someone cutting an onion — If your dream has someone cutting an onion in it and making you cry, then it could mean such a person is extremely jealous of you and your subconscious is trying to warn you to be careful whenever you’re around such a person or whenever you’re thinking of sharing something intimate that could be used against you by a jealous friend.
If the person making you cry in the dream is a stranger, then it could mean you have the feeling deep down that someone out there is jealous of you and would want to hurt you if he/she gets the chance.
The best way to deal with this is to be extra careful, talk less and believe in yourself to know your true friends.
You’re the one cutting the onion in the dream — If you’re the one cutting the onion in the dream, then it most likely means you are currently giving your best to go deeper into your present situation, it could be you trying to figure something out, or judge someone’s character properly perhaps a friend, a colleague, someone who asked you out on a date or someone who proposed to you. You’re trying to view the situation with a clear eye before giving a reply.
At times, this stems from past mistakes you’ve made when faced with such decisions and you’re trying to avoid making the same mistake.
So you’re doing your best to know all there is to know before making a decision. This dream shows the cautionary state your mind is at that moment.
Finally, if you dream of eating onions, it is generally believed that someone is trying to send evil spirits towards you.
