Dream Symbol


Medusa is known as a mythical monstrous woman with hair made of snakes, and whose gaze turns humans to stone. A Medusa's head can represent feeling overwhelmed, and that your problems may even seem to be multiplying.

Medusa might also represent the following things, relating to your current or recent life experience:

  • Fear
  • Temptation, especially due to curiosity or attraction to femininity and beauty
  • Chaos, or multiple or amplified threats (as in the wriggling snakes that make up her hair)
  • Fear or dislike of women or a particular woman, seeing them or her as monstrous somehow
  • A person or experience that scares you enough you feel "paralyzed" or don't know how to handle it
