What does a soldier represent in a dream?
Here are some possibilities of a soldier dream and their interpretation for you.
Symbolic of discipline
You may be under a tight routine in your waking life right now, and you may be experiencing a lot of disciplined scenarios. This is something you may be welcoming in your life, or it could also be that you are feeling tired of it.
There may be a lot of strictness surrounding this discipline, and you are fatigued from following all of these rules.
It may be taking a toll on you and your psyche. On the other hand, dreaming of a soldier could also symbolize a lack of discipline in your life.
It is possible that you are feeling a lot of freedom and you feel that you are missing some sort of structure in your life – like you are feeling lost and don’t quite know what to do with all of this leeway.
You don’t really have to make a problem out of all of this. If you are feeling that there is too much strictness, give yourself the permission to get out of the situation that you are in.
You don’t have to continue suffocating in an environment that doesn’t help you flourish. If it is the lack of discipline that you seek, you are also able to help yourself in this regard.
You can impose structure in your routine so that you can feel that there is discipline in your life, and that you are handling your affairs in an organized manner.
The trick is not to feel too overwhelmed with whatever situation you are in. Be easy on yourself and the right path will unfold for you easily.
Symbolic of inner battles
There may be a war inside you right now. Are you facing a difficult decision wherein you don’t really know what path to choose?
You may be feeling stressed about what choice to make, and this could be the reason why you are dreaming of a soldier. The best thing to do in this situation is to quiet your mind and meditate.
Often, when you empty your mind of thoughts and stresses, the right answer will just pop up without you having to make too much of an effort.
Give yourself the space you need in order to get to the best decision without having to torture yourself.
Symbolic of fear
There may be something buzzing in the background – something that is causing fear or anxiety in you. This may be the reason why you are dreaming of a soldier. You may be scared to face this fear, or whatever the scenario that is bringing it.
Do what you can to help yourself. Get the support of loved ones and friends, in order that you may get more confidence regarding the situation that you are in.
Pray and get deep into intending good things for yourself. Have faith that things will turn out in the best way so that you can let yourself feel good and attract the same kind of energy into your life.
Symbolic of change
Sometimes, some of us are wired to think that we have to go through hell or a lot of suffering in order to get to the change that we need in our lives.
This could be the meaning of your dream of soldiers. You may feel like you have to go through a lot of struggle just to get to a change that you wish to encounter or have happen in your life.
It is okay to let go of these beliefs. Change can be simple – and you don’t have to subject yourself to great suffering just to get to the change that you want or desire for your life.
Symbolic of hate
Since soldiers are usually present when there is a war, dreaming of soldiers could sometimes represent hatred. This could be self-hatred – is there something about yourself that you are struggling to accept?
This could also be a hatred towards other people – whether they are close to you or not. Finally, this could symbolize a hatred towards an institution or a situation that you wish to do something about.
Common Situations in Which You Dream about Soldiers
Dream of being a soldier
If in your dream, you are the soldier in uniform, this could mean a lot of things. For one, it could symbolize that you are about to go into battle – whether it is in your regular life and something that has to do with your emotions.
You may be involved in an argument with someone and you feel as if there will be a major confrontation soon.
Sometimes, dreaming of being a soldier in complete apparel may symbolize sexual desires that you have for other people.
Dream of seeing a soldier
If you dream of seeing a soldier that is separate from you, this may mean that there is good fortune for you in your life soon. There may be a special gift coming – and something that may not necessarily be material.
It could be a promotion, another symbol of financial abundance, achievement in your career, or a personal goal that will be accomplished soon.

It may be something that you have been expecting for a long time, or it may be that you are going to experience something life-changing and exuberant.
Dream of being chased by soldiers
If you dream of being chased by soldiers, this could mean that you have a lot of worries and anxieties in your life. Most of these are self-imposed. Learn to relax a bit more and not take life too seriously.
It may be easier said than done especially if you have always been used to stressing yourself out just to shore up your self-worth, but it is highly important if you want peace and happiness in your life.
Learn to let go of what you can’t control and focus on the things you have the power to change. This will help you feel good for the most part.
Dream of a soldier giving you a message
