Shouting is a means of communication that involves raising your voice louder than usual. Often a specific emotion comes with a scream; screaming can be out of anger or fear, sadness or pain. We can also burst into cheers and screams of joy when our feelings of happiness overwhelm us, perhaps even yodeling. We shout at someone when we want to emphasize a threat with our loudness. Usually not only the volume but also the pitch changes when we scream.
The first sound a newborn makes is a cry. Screaming therefore also represents an important developmental stage in our existence. Whether in an outburst of anger or out of sheer joy, shouting is often accompanied by tears and certain facial expressions such as narrowed eyes and the corners of the mouth pulled down. Through the interplay of the reason, posture, facial expressions and possibly the content of the shout, your own scream contains clear information for other people: I am angry, angry, disappointed, sad, happy.
But what does it look like when we scream and shout in a dream? What can this mean? Here too, the feelings associated with screaming can play an important role in the interpretation. But the respective dream situation is also important. Therefore, think again about your dream and try to remember as many details as possible.

Dream symbol “scream” – The most common dreams about the symbol
Who screams in a dream?
The screaming wife and mother in the dream world
The identity of this person is helpful for analyzing the screaming woman. If it is your own mother who screams in a dream during a conversation, you should first question your relationship with her. If the real relationship is good, then the cry symbolizes an imbalance in the dreamer. The feminine side is not completely accepted – this also applies to men. The opposite is true if the relationship with the mother is bad: then the screaming woman represents a very intensely lived feminine side.
If it is a random woman that you don’t know in reality, the dream image refers to your own creativity and ability to communicate. If the woman screams loudly in the dream, you internally long to meet your needs more.
