What Does It Mean To See A Double Rainbow In A Dream?

When you see a double rainbow in your dream, this can be taken as a sign of good fortune, hope and success. Seeing a double rainbow appear in your dreams means your deepest wishes and desires may very well come true in your waking life and might also be closer than expected.

When it comes to good fortune in combination with seeing double rainbows, this most of the time refers to financial improvements and stability.

Your dream could be a positive prediction of receiving an increase in salary or winning a financial prize. You will most likely find yourself being in a financially stable situation soon. Remember to keep an open mind while looking for possibilities on earning or maybe even finding money in your waking life.

It appears in order to deliver you the message to not despair but remember that any challenges you may have going on in your waking life will soon come to an end, just like the sun will shine after the rain.

As with all types of dreams, the specific circumstances happening in your dream will determine the more clarified interpretation on what is the exact meaning of a dream. The same principle applies to dreams about seeing double rainbows.

That’s why I decided to demonstrate a few examples below of specific double rainbow themed dreams. Let’s find out what the specific meanings of these double rainbow dreams possibly are:

Dreaming about seeing a double rainbow while driving

When a double rainbow appears in your dream while you’re driving, this could mean that you have been doing a lot of work on yourself and your personal development lately, and are now heading towards to right direction.

A double rainbow is showing up along your journey to reassure that you are on the right path. Keep on going and you will soon arrive at your desired destination! You know exactly what you want out of life and this dream has appeared to let you know you have everything it takes in order to make it happen.

Dreaming about seeing a double rainbow inside your home

When a double rainbow appears in your dream inside of your home (in the middle of your living room for example), it could mean that a certain breakthrough within your relationship is near and you and your significant other are both heading towards a more stable and positive direction.

When you’re working from home and have just started your own business, it could also mean that your business will soon take off and become successful. Financial blessings are near!

Dreaming about seeing a double rainbow with different colors

When a double rainbow appears in your dream but seems to have different colors than the usual rainbow colors, this could mean that you might have to look at some things in your life differently, in order to be able to reach your goals and ultimately success.

However, the fact that a double rainbow does show up does mean that you’re already quite close to reaching your goals. There probably is just still one very important thing that needs some serious examination before you’ll be able to achieve your goals and dreams. Use your intuition and try to truly connect and feel what this specific aspect might be. You’ll know it when you feel it.

Dreaming about seeing a double rainbow with a specific person

When a double rainbow appears in your dream while you’re also with a specific person, for example; someone you have deeper feelings for, this might mean that the feelings you have for this person are being reciprocated and you’ll be successful when you decide to open up to them about these feelings in the waking life. In this case, the double rainbow also shows up as a sign of letting you know that this is probably someone that will play a very important role in your (future) life. 

If in your dream you’re with a person you don’t have feelings for (yet), seeing this person along with a double rainbow might come as a sign of showing you this person does have feelings for you and has the right intentions. You might want to consider giving this person a chance when they do admit their feelings to you in the waking life!

Dreaming about seeing a double rainbow at work

If you dream about seeing a double rainbow while being at work, this might mean that the energy and long hours you’ve been putting in to your job lately will soon pay off and bring you financial benefits. 

Keep on doing what you’re doing and have faith that you’ll soon be rewarded for everything you’ve done. All your hard work certainly won’t be for nothing. You’ll be glad you didn’t give in!

How Rare Is It To See A Double Rainbow?

Even though there is no doubt that double rainbows are absolutely beautiful, they are not as rare as you might think.

Seeing a double rainbow isn’t a rare phenomenon. Even though it is true that double rainbows don’t appear quite as much as singular rainbows, the average person is likely to encounter double rainbows throughout their lives for at least a couple of times. 

Something that is quite rare to encounter though, when it comes to the spectrum of rainbows, is a “twinned” rainbow. A twinned rainbow is formed when the two separate arcs become severed from the identical primary base. 

To Conclude

Now you know that when you see a double rainbow, it means that the light that has reached the inside of a droplet has been reflected twice, which in turn results in the second rainbow but in reversed colors. A double rainbow actually is considered an optical illusion.

A double rainbow is also commonly seen a sign of good fortune, happiness and achievement, mostly in Eastern cultures. Seeing a double rainbow is always a good omen. It’s a sign of hope and positivity and that a lot of good things are coming your way.

When it comes to seeing a double rainbow in your dreams, this can be taken as a sign that your deepest wishes and desires will soon become reality in your waking life. The exact meaning of the dream depends on the circumstances within the dream where or with whom the double rainbow has been noticed. 

Even though a double rainbow might come across as really unique to a lot of people, especially when you’ve never encountered one before, double rainbows actually aren’t considered rare. That certainly doesn’t make them any less beautiful though!
