To dream of a clown represents your sense of humor, silliness, and fun-loving personality. The emotions that the clown conveys mirror your own. Whatever it is expressing will lead you through your own feelings. The actions of the clown represent your spontaneous and outgoing personality. It may also imply that you are being too careless and impulsive.
If you have a fear or phobia of clowns, the clown may symbolize an unknown figure who may want to hurt you in some way. This may be someone who is taking advantage of you or not showing you their true self.
