We generally dream of happenings in the sky when we are exploring ambition or aspirations. A star is a symbol that can show wishes, aspirations or our desire to be recognized for our accomplishments. A shooting star carries the idea of wishes with something that is burning out. The message can be that we are not taking action steps to go after what we want - instead are allowing events to simply unfold. This type of dream coaches you to examine your aspirations and ensure you are taking steps to manifest them. As a symbol of you, the shooting star can also represent impending burnout. You may need to find more joy in what you are doing.
