General Meanings:

Confusion and uncertainty Darkness in a dream is interpreted as a state of confusion or when entering an unknown territory and difficult period in your real life. Darkness in the dream makes clear that you do not understand something and therefore you are uncertain how to behave properly and decide correctly. The first step is that you have to try to illuminate the darkness. Also this dream shows some shadows in your soul which are hidden so you have to try to learn to know yourself better.
