To dream of an ostrich represents a situation that you notice never “takes off” or never happens. Feeling disappointment that something isn’t doing what you’d expect it to do. Feeling that you or someone else is a loser because something is always talked about, but never carried out. More concern with appearances than on taking action. Some area of your life that is always getting ready in a big way, but never actualizing. A lot energy put into preparation, but no final results. Relationship expectations that never actualize. Showing off with only your potential to succeed without proving yourself.
To dream of ostrich eggs represents feelings about waiting for something to happen that you know will never “get off the ground.” Waiting for an event that you know will be more preoccupied with appearances than action.
To dream of an ostrich with it’s head in the sand represents embarrassing setbacks or delays that you don’t want to be noticed for. You may feel too embarrassed to talk to someone because you couldn’t keep your word.
Example: A woman dreamed of an ostrich walking near her. In waking life she was having a very hard time getting over a guy she liked. The ostrich reflected her awareness of her desired relationship with the guy never happening despite numerous encounters.
Example 2: A woman dreamed of looking at a cracking ostrich egg. In waking life she decided to begin talking about repairs being made to her deceased mother’s home which was being used as a second family residence. She had no intention to do so, but felt that appearing to be preparing ordering repairs would make other people in the family stop bothering her.
