An umbrella in our waking life represents shelter from the elements, and in the dream world, this applies as well.
When you dream about an umbrella it is often a sign that it’s time to protect yourself from challenges that are incoming or that you currently face.
Dreaming About Seeing An Umbrella
When you are seeing an umbrella in your dream, your subconscious is trying to tell you that you have more tools at your disposal than you think when it comes to sheltering the storms of life.
What feelings are associated with the umbrella in your dream? Are you feeling sad or are you feeling relief and joy?
If sadness is the association in the dream, the storm is in its present state or in the very near future, but the umbrella is your shelter from this storm.
If joy is the feeling in your dream or relief with the umbrella, then the storm is now passing and your rainbow will soon be upon you. Until then you are protected by your subconscious.

Dreaming About Holding An Umbrella
If you dream you are holding an umbrella it indicates your ability to protect yourself. If you are unable to hold onto your umbrella because the wind is too strong and it is flying away, this is showing that an important situation is getting away from you.
If you are being battered by rain then this indicates your emotions, or someone else’s, are overpowering you. If you are holding an umbrella and the sun is shining it indicates victory is coming your way and you are coming out on top.
Dreaming About People Holding Umbrellas
If there are other people with you when an umbrella appears in your dream, then it is very likely that relying on those people within your waking life will help to keep you sheltered from life’s storms.
The people who appear in your dream holding the umbrellas will help protect you from the challenges you face.
If you do not recognize the people in your dream pay attention to what type of people they are because they are often an archetype of a side of yourself. Is one a warrior? This is your warrior self coming out. Is one a king?
This is your strong and masculine side being called upon to protect you? Is there a maid? This is the side of you being called upon to work hard to nurture yourself and take care of your environment to help you weather the storms.
