(Gives gender – specific) In dreams nymphs are connected with a woman’s sense of beauty and her own femininity. Each group of nymphs has their own particular role and guardianship of specific areas, such as forests and lakes, woods and valleys, mountains and grottoes, which has a certain resonance with different aspects of our personality.

In a man’s dream nymphs will often represent a perception of innocence.
