A crown signifies a change into a different level of awareness, victory over death and a recognition of status. The diadem, the forerunner of the crown, was initially a simple white ribbon, ending in a knot and two stripes that were placed on the shoulders, that surrounded the head of the king to denote his authority. It signified being bound to his spiritual task. We may have striven for something and our greatest victory has been against our own inertia. The crown can represent dedication, particularly to duty. It suggests the attainment of knowledge. When a crown is highly decorated we acknowledge our past attainments. To dream of a crown is to acknowledge our own success, and to recognize that we have opportunities that will expand our knowledge and awareness. We may be about to receive recognition or a reward of some sort. Consult the entry for Diadem for further clarity.
