The trumpet sounds a spiritual vibration, which requires awareness. The rumpet is closely associated with power. Representations of angels are often shown blowing trumpets, a stylized depiction of the trumpet's dominion over lesser spirits. As a wind instrument, the trumpet in dreams represents the call to maximize our potential, particularly our intellectual expertise. We reach for the best within ourselves to have the maximum effect and benefit in our lives. A trumpet in a dream will most often suggest either a warning or a ?call to arms?. From a practical point of view it will often be alerting us to some potential danger. When there is conflict around us we may need some kind of warning to be ready for action and a trumpet can be one such symbol. The sound of the trumpet is an invitation to sheer joy.
