According to ancient dream dictionaries, the well was always considered one of the highly spiritual symbols in dreams. A well is a very deep place with water inside, and as most of you may already know, water in dreams represents our emotions, feelings, desires, and everything that comes from within.
The combination of these two dream symbols suggests that you are either going through a difficult emotional period (this may be a sign that emotional problems are lurking just beneath the surface) or you desire a greater expression of emotions or emotional support.
A dream about fetching water from a well means you are feeling frustrated, unappreciated, and emotionally unfulfilled. While water in dreams symbolizes emotions, feelings, and everything that comes from within, fetching water represents a desire to acquire or possess something or an effort to feel emotionally fulfilled.
The meaning of your dream can change slightly depending on whether you succeeded in fetching the water or whether you have constantly been trying to do so without success.
If you managed to get water from a well, it could indicate that you will soon feel emotionally fulfilled. You can meet someone new, or you can start doing something that gives you a sense of meaning in life (e.g., volunteering, traveling, etc.)
If you have constantly been trying to get water from a well without success, it could mean that you are longing for more emotions and feelings, but you are not getting them. Either your partner does not express enough feelings to you (your relationship is cold), or you feel like a fish out of water, dry and without feelings and emotions.
You may not be getting enough emotional support, or you feel like no one cares about you. You may also be going through a difficult time, and this dream could represent your desire for reconciliation and empathy. You desire nothing more than genuine love and emotion.
Inability to express your feelings
Dreaming about trying to get water from a well indicates that you have trouble expressing your feelings or emotions. It could be expressing your love for your parents or your feelings for the person you have a crush on. You may want and would like to express your feelings, but you can’t, or rather you don’t know how.
You don’t know how to bring the feelings that lie deep inside you to the surface. You don’t know how to express them, or you are afraid of the reactions of others. You may have some kind of internal block in expressing your feelings, or you are afraid that they will not be reciprocated.
A dream about fetching water from a well could be a sign of an upcoming and emotionally fulfilling relationship. You could have decided to stop waiting for new love to fall into your lap and take your destiny into your own hands. You want love and emotional bonds, and you want to feel whole again.
It could also mean that you are willing to take risks for love. When you fetch water from a well, you have no assurance that you will get any water from the well, nor do you know what creature lives there. You are willing to take risks to meet your personal emotional needs.
If your partner lives on the other side of the world, you may take a risk and move to another country and culture to feel more emotionally connected in your relationship. You may also think about proposing to your partner because you believe that marriage is the only way to be truly emotionally connected.
