To dream of ice represents an area of your life that is “frozen” or still. It can also represent problems you can’t do anything about or that have been left unsolved. Issues or problems that are “frozen.” A situation coming to a standstill. Ice may also reflect concerns or fear about “slipping up” in a sensitive or dangerous situation.

Alternatively, ice in a dream may reflect unconscious memories that are repressed or that you are oblivious to. Deep rooted unconscious influences that you have completely forgotten. A symbol that may appear in dream of people in therapy trying to discover their problems.
Ice may reflect a need to reexamine your past, reflect on childhood influences, and speak to people about your problems so that you might gain insight to possible solutions.
Negatively, ice may reflect a wish to “freeze” a problem instead of confronting it. It may also reflect your enjoyment or preference to not have to confront an unpleasant outcome that currently can’t embarrass you. Stupidly telling yourself that as long as a problem isn’t serious right now that you can simply ignore it or put it off for later. Alternatively, it may reflect an arrogant attitude about exploiting someone else’s hopelessness. Feelings about a situation being bleak or austere.
To dream of ice melting represents the unraveling of problems, or uncertainty in your life. Negative life situations or experiences may be motivating you to fix long standing issues, change beliefs, or face your problems. Finally have to face a problem from your past.
