The meaning of Melting in dream | Dream interpretation
(see Ice, Snow)
Transformations that lead to liberation.
Warming affections, improved compassion and benevolence (e.g., the “melting of a hardened heart”).
Flow, freedom, and forgiveness. What’s melting here has great significance.
For example, metals in a forge speak directly to a personal change that liberates you from old structures.
This dream sometimes refers to those bad habits and attitudes that will cease to be so after they fade.
If snow is melting it shows that your insensitivity begins to warm up. Perhaps, you have behaved in a really cold manner (in terms of emotions) and the time is right to change this. Similarly, the circumstances that kept you paralyzed in real life may begin to be easier.
According to popular superstition, dreaming of melting gold portends sadness; if silver, economic problems; and if it is ice, a situation that gets out of control.
Dreams of melting represent empathy and compassion. You are releasing pre-conceived ideas, limited thoughts, and obstructions to happiness. Your ego walls are dissolving in the midst of passion or the heat of transformation. See Breakdown/Breakthrough Dreams and Alchemy.
Melting ice or snow may suggest a meltdown of frozen emotions that were previously held in check. Molten metal may symbolize a major transformation taking place.
The passing of time, i.E. Wasting away caused by a chronic condition, procrastination, etc.; See “candle”
Symbolic of wavering or losing resolve over a situation, Isa. 13:7
(1) Melting snow or ice probably means that repressed emotions should / can be allowed freedom of expression in your life. The only thing that can do the melting is love: total acceptance, encouragement and (where necessary) forgiveness of all the contents of your unconscious.
(2) Is metal melting in fire? It may symbolize the transforming - from base to noble or spiritual - of some (despised? ‘animal’ / physical?) part of yourself. See also Fire, section (4).
