dreaming of stars biblical meaning
Job 38:7
…while the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy?

Stars are magical and mysterious to even understand them. I don’t advocate astronomy and the observation of zodiac signs as the act and the belief system behind it is demonic. As Christians, we live by faith, not by sight. (2 Corinthians 5:7). Hence, those teachings are false doctrines.

Dreaming of a bright star.

A bright star in a dream symbolizes greater glory or fame. When you dream of shining bright like a star, it is a sign you are at the peak of success. Be it in your career, business, or ministry. If you are a musician, then it is a sign you will make it in the music industry. The same is true with every other profession.

The Bible declares that we who win souls for the kingdom of God shall shine bright like the stars of heaven. Which represents a season of glory.

Daniel 12:3
Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.
Matthew 13:43
Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.

The dream may also mean you are an example for others to emulate. Christians are expected to shine bright so that the world may see their light and be drawn to God through them. (Philippians 2:15).


Dreaming of a falling star.

A falling star in a dream symbolizes the death of a famous person, this may include a prominent musician, politician, or minister.

They are termed as fallen angels, or fallen stars, as stars in a dream may symbolize angels.

Dreaming of a dying star.

Naturally, dying stars tend to shine the brightest, however, in the spiritual realm this might not be the case. The brightness produced by a dying star might be a sign of the legacy one leaves behind. The dream may also symbolize dying glory.

Dreaming of a fading star.

A fading star in a dream is a representation of the dying glory of a prominent person in society. This may be due to a scandal, loss of interest and motivation, lack of better ideas hence inability to keep up with the changing world, or due to the rise of another much excellent prominent person.


In the case of a Christian, the dream is a sign that the Christian who once shone bright like the sun is now living in sin. This explains the reason why his light is dimming slowly but steadily. He is falling away from the truth and choosing to live in darkness (sin).

Matthew 5:16
In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.

Stars colliding in a dream

Dreaming of stars colliding is a sign of intense rivalry between prominent persons. It can also be a war between spiritual entities since angels are referred to as stars in scripture. The reason for the rivalry may differ, but brings with it greater consequences to innocent people.

Judges 5:20
From the heavens, the stars fought, from their courses they fought against Sisera.

The Bible also records a similar rivalry in heaven, when the angel Michael contested against Satan and his fallen angels. This battle led to the corruption of the human race by fallen angels, who became demonic entities as they had left their proper place in heaven to lust after strange flesh. (Genesis 6).

Worshipping stars in a dream.

Dreaming that you are worshipping stars or other heavenly hosts is a sign of an idolatrous heart. You are replacing God with an idol. The idol may be your lust for flesh, love of money, obsession with status, or cultism which introduces you to the worship of demons.

The Bible forbids worship and sacrifice to heavenly hosts, such as the sun, moon, and stars. We are to worship no other gods except Yahweh. (Deuteronomy 4:19, 10:22).

And when you look up to the sky and see the sun, the moon and the stars, all the heavenly array, do not be enticed into bowing down to them and worshiping things the LORD your God has apportioned to all the nations under heaven.

Every star has its glory, as some shine brighter than others. Hence, the dream symbolizes different levels of glory, rewards, and abilities. Just as there are people with superior abilities than others or different levels of anointing.

1 Corinthians 15:41
The sun has one kind of splendor, the moon another and the stars another; and star differs from star in splendor.

Dreaming of seven stars.

The seven stars represent seven angels assigned to the seven churches or seven phases of church history, as described in the book of Revelation. Seven as a symbolic number represent the completion of the church phases from the time of Christ to the end of the ages. Each angle has a distinct assignment for every church phase in history.

Revelation 1:20
The mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand and of the seven golden lampstands is this: The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.
