Thirst in a dream is symbolic of our quest for spiritual knowledge and enlightenment. It may well be an unquenchable one. To satisfy a thirst indicates we are capable of satisfying our own desires. By being prepared to take in what we need, we are able to experience life in the best way possible. If we are thirsty in a dream we need to look very carefully at either what we are being denied, or what we are denying ourselves, in waking life. Dreaming of being thirsty suggests we have an unsatisfied inner need; we may be emotionally at a low ebb and need something to give us a boost. Anything that gives us emotional satisfaction whether short- or long-term would suffice. Consulting the entries for Drink, Emotions, Quest and Water will provide further information.
