Interpretation of dream: Forge

The forge represents the Sacred Fire or Spirit that resides in all of us. This is an idea common in many cultures, the power or ability to transmute that which is base and unformed into something sacred. The forge represents the masculine and active force. To dream of a forge indicates that we are changing internally and allowing our finer abilities to be shown. The forge Gods such as Thor and Vulcan were an important aspect of ancient belief and often represented the ability to change. When the forge and the blacksmith were a part of normal, everyday life this particular dream would indicate some aspect of hard work or desire to reach a goal. Now it is more likely to mean a ritual action. Forging in the sense of counterfeiting an object in dreams suggests we do not trust our own creativity.
