Chess – Dream Meaning and Interpretation

Chess dream meaning

As in real life, chess in dreams is marked with black and white fields, but unlike a fair battle in the awaked state, chess in dreams can represent a battle between good and evil.

To dream of playing chess


It suggests that you have gained or will soon gain a significant friend or business partner that will help you achieve many goals more easily. Playing chess implies that your new acquaintance will be your equal, so every attempt of a scam or back-stabbing will end badly for you.

To dream of winning in chess


It suggests that you will not have easy victories in real life. That can mean that you will misjudge your business associates’ proposals and make wrong decisions that will cost you much money and business stability. In rare cases, a victory in chess in a dream can symbolize an unexpected gain, but you need not hope for it too much because a triumph in dreams is often a defeat in real life.

What Does It Mean to Dream of Crying?

To dream about a defeat in chess


It implies that you will have to deal with intelligent and cunning associates. You need not play it dirty because it will backfire on you. On the other hand, a defeat in chess can also mean that someone you least expect it from is ready to help you with one problem.

To dream of talking to a chess player


It suggests that you have to ask for advice regarding a potential problem in life from someone more experienced. It is not specified, but that person can be an expert in a specific field, like a doctor, gynecologist, handyman, psychologist, auto mechanic, etc. It can even be your parent.

To dream of watching a game of chess


It symbolizes a warning not to meddle in the lives of people who don’t concern you. If a few of your colleagues from work or people from your family have a conflict, you have to let them solve their problems alone because they could easily blame you for their issues.

To dream about an empty chessboard


It means that you will not know what move to make in a specific situation. You will get torn between a few possibilities, but none of them is probably the right one, so a hard decision expects you. You will have to make it alone because otherwise, you will blame someone else for a possible mistake.

To dream of chess pieces coming to life


It implies that you are or will soon be in a situation that will entirely occupy your whole being. Nothing except the new circumstances will matter, and you will ignore everything else around you. You have to be careful because you could hurt the people you care about and harm yourself mentally or even experience financial losses.

To dream of your king being in danger of getting matted


It means that someone of the opposite sex often annoys you, and you don’t know what to do to get rid of them. That person’s behavior could easily turn into an intrusion of your privacy, which can lead to immense inconveniences in your relationship or marriage. You have to solve that problem before you sink deeper into it.

To dream of learning to play chess


It suggests that you are in a phase of life when you can achieve much. You have enough knowledge, experience, and energy to get what you want. It is a pity if you don’t want to take advantage of that potential for some reason to provide yourself with a brighter future.

To dream about teaching someone to play chess


It implies that you have to be more sympathetic to your loved ones. You have to show them that you trust and support them and be patient. Everyone makes mistakes, but people always have to have someone by their side who will point those mistakes out and direct them on the right path.

To dream of making a risky move in chess

It suggests that you will go on an adventure. That can have something to do with your personal or business side of life. If you are single, you might start a secret relationship with someone much older or younger than you. If you work for someone else at the moment, you might decide to start your business soon.

To dream about making a wrong move in chess


It symbolizes confusion. You might have been stressed out lately, so you make mistakes where you haven’t done anything like that before. You need not be too harsh to yourself. You have to take a break to think about the situation that you are in and avoid making impulsive decisions because they will not bring good results.

To dream of judging a chess tournament


It suggests that you will have to judge someone in real life. You might decide on someone’s destiny with a group of people. It will not be easy to make a final decision, but you know that your choice has to be objective and fair and that you can’t let external factors or even feelings affect it.

To dream about arguing with an opponent in chess


It means that you will misinterpret one situation and make wrong decisions. Everything we decide to do impulsively can be a risky move. It is necessary to turn off your emotions and let reason lead you through the whole process now.

To dream of playing chess without knowing the rules


It means that you are not used to changes that you have experienced yet. You have probably started working someplace else or moved to another city or country. You have to get familiar with the rules, culture, and customs first to sail through that situation better.

It means that you are ready to learn something new in your life. You need not give up on the idea of taking a course or training to gain specific knowledge or skills.
