We may not treat animals the same way that we used to these days in circuses, but we still have those memories in the media. Either way there are a lot more emotions wrapped up in the circus than you’d imagine. This is one reason why you might be dreaming of the circus, because it can be a metaphor for so many different things.
What does it mean when you dream that you are a circus performer? If you dream that you are performing in the circus it means that you feel like you need to do really dangerous things to get the attention you deserve. You consistently put yourself in terrible positions because of the expectations of others. But the problem is people just expect too much from you. You shouldn’t be expected to go out and do all of these terrible things just to get people to notice you. This is wrong.
If you have a dream in which you are viewing a circus performer it means that you feel like people are jumping through hoops for you. This could result in any number of emotions that you might be feeling. For example if you’re less of a wholesome person then you might be happy to see other people going to such great lengths to impress you. However if you’re a more down home impressed kind of person then it might mean that you need to forget about the fact that people are trying to impress you so hard. You need to accept that you have a position of privilege but by no means abuse it. Don’t allow yourself to fall into this hole. You should probably feel guilty, but if you’re feeling guilty than that in itself is evidence that you should not, if you get the meaning. It means you have a conscience, and that is halfway on the road to recovery.
If you dream that you are simply at the circus and having some fun then this means that you are yearning to have some more fun in your life. The circus is a place of pleasure for many and should be seen as such even though you aren’t the type that usually enjoys it. Though it is possible that you might enjoy it, and in that case it means again that you need to take more time to go out and enjoy yourself at a place such as the circus. But when it comes down to it, you may not even need to go out, you just need to enjoy yourself and that’s the end of that.
