The interpretation of this dream depends on its various aspects, such as the condition of the water, the weather, etc., but as a general guide: A stormy lake predicts a failure that, if you refuse to let it depress you, will lead to an important benefit. To dream of a calm lake in good weather signifies smooth sailing on the sea of life. A moonlit lake augurs a happy love life. A dream of traveling around a lake or observing one from the air is a sign of passive stagnation; try to find some new interests. To dream of wading into a lake indicates unnecessary anxieties; try to approach life more calmly.
