If we receive carnations in the dream, give away or see, they mostly announce pleasant, – this can be a dear visit, an amusing company or an unexpected idiom to the better in the professional life. Carnation is interpreted as a symbol of the friendship and one recognises the following meanings according to accompanying circumstances:
- blossoming carnation stands for good friendship, particularly if it looks red or green.
- white carnation indicates an unselfish friendship.
- yellow or black carnation indicates problems in the friendship.
- wilted carnation announces that a friendship cools.
The garden flowers seeming in many variants are the ‘little nails’ which help us to get over something which possibly robbed of the sleep (‘with little nail besteckt, slip under the deck’) us. Also men dream quite often of flowers, but only seldom for aesthetic reasons. In the Traumsprache carnations mostly have the meaning of girls for sale. May be that the person concerned of an adventure with a girl for sale hopes for the fulfilment of certain wishes which he does not dare to express towards other girls. Only ‘by the flower’ he dares to realise such wishes.
The carnation was a symbol of the passion and is also to be seen often on pictures of the Madonna.
