Umbrellas—Everyday Objects Drenched In Symbolism
Rainy days engender a sleepy mood, bringing about lazy days spent indoors, reading books and sipping hot tea (my favorite is Bigelow’s Constant Comment).
But for those of us who live in relentlessly rainy places, umbrellas are an everyday essential tool. We don’t let the rain keep us from going about our lives—we just make sure to be prepared for it. Carrying umbrellas with us everywhere we go, we brave the rain and puddles with a smile on our face.
So, for us, umbrellas might not stand out as objects worthy of analysis—but that is to do them a disservice. In fact, umbrellas (regardless of color) are “drenched” in symbolic and spiritual meaning.
To Understand The Meaning Of Umbrellas, First You Need To Understand Water
The analyze the spiritual meaning or omen associated with an umbrella, pink or otherwise, we have to think about the umbrella’s links to rain. An umbrella, in a literal sense, prevents water from hitting us and affecting us. As such, it represents spiritual protection from the negative effects of human emotions. This is because, in traditional beliefs, the element of water represents emotion (ref: patheos.com). Additionally, umbrellas go beyond our own emotions. This is because they also protect us from the emotions of others.
Umbrellas protect us from more than just water and emotion, though. They also stand for protection from things that come from above. This isn’t necessarily about literal threats in the sky. Rather, it pertains to our perspectives. What do we see as being above us? The government, your manager at work, teachers at school? So, the umbrella stands for protection against powerful people and institutions, especially those we might characterize as our tormentors.
Why Does The Color Pink Matter?
Pink, in recent years, has become the color of femininity. Moreover, pink is the ultimate color of live. It is associated with kindness, compassion, and warmth. Pink, born of red and white, combines passion and peace, in a subdued hue of sheer wholesomeness. And it is absolutely fabulous!
Whether you are wearing a rose-colored dress or painting your nails with a bubblegum hue, pink always manages to make a statement. And a pink umbrella, wow, now there’s a statement! When it comes to symbolism, pink represents all that is good and cute in the world. It is a color that conveys hope, faith, and reconciliation.
Spiritual Meaning Of A Pink Umbrella
If you enjoy a life of symbols and meaning, then it helps to learn how to piece together the meaning around you by breaking things down into their basic parts. In this case, we’re talking about the spiritual meaning of a pink umbrella. So, naturally, we’ve discussed what umbrellas represent, and also what the color pink stands for. Now, it’s time to bring those two elements together to better understand the spiritual and symbolic meaning of a pink umbrella.
Pink umbrellas represent protection via the divine feminine. They shield us from fiery emotions and bless us as we go about our days.
Pink Umbrellas And The Divine Feminine
The pink umbrella is a symbol of divine feminine protection. While there may be malevolent forces out in the world, ones that exist beyond our sight and control; when you see this omen it means that your angels are watching over you, especially those with a profound feminine energy.
The divine feminine is the supreme counterbalance to masculine energy in our society and its resulting ideas concerning spirituality. As such, you might be pleased to hear she is there for you during difficult times—especially those relating to vital female experiences.
Of course, the concept of a divine feminine involves—like all spirituality—a rich discussion of possibilities. Therefore, for those new to the concept, it’s difficult to recommend or reference one source. However, a good place to start is with Emily Torres’s piece on TheGoodTrade.com.
Pink Umbrellas Subdue Fiery Emotions
Also, consider the umbrella as an omen of protection from extreme and harsh emotions. This synergizes well with the color pink’s association with a less harsh emotion: love. Therefore, it can be said that a pink umbrella means that love and kindness will aid in overwhelming any negative emotions you or others around you might have.
As such, if you fear that there are people with unpleasant wishes for you, it might be time to swap out that stylish black umbrella, for a cute pink one.
Let’s go back to the nature of the color pink: we get pink when we mix red (passion) with white (peace). As such, pink objects can be seen as representing and invoking a protection that takes overheated sentiment (passion, i.e. anger, lust, etc.—all represented by the color red) and tempers it with peace (represented by the color white).
Is a Pink Umbrella a Good Omen or a Bad Omen?
Of course seeing a pink umbrella is a good omen. Not only does it lift your mood on a gray and rainy day, it also conveys deep, positive spiritual meaning. Moreover, the pink umbrella omen implies protection from the divine feminine. Additionally, a pink umbrella, taken as an omen, suggests you will be protected from the harsh emotions of those who wish you ill. Therefore, seeing a pink umbrella on your travel is a wonderfully positive omen.
Pink Umbrella Dream Meaning
Understanding dream meanings can be a confusing path to take. This is because there are many different ideas about how dreams should be viewed. Some, of course, are interested in the psychoanalysis of dreams. Whereas, others are more interested in the spiritual or metaphysical meaning. Here on Symbols and Synchronicity, we focus on spiritual interpretation of dreams.
So, let’s talk about the spiritual meaning of a dream about a pink umbrella. Well, it might not be that interesting to say, but seeing a pink umbrella in a dream doesn’t different too much from seeing one in real life. This is because, as you can see both in reality and in your mind’s eye while you dream—a pink umbrella is a pink umbrella! So, it still represents protection through love and affection.
There is one difference worth noting, though. That is to do with the medium—i.e. the fact that the omen has arrived to you via a dream. Dreams are thought of as connections, a sort of conduit that links the different realms of reality. Therefore, it could be that the message is coming from another soul to you via your dreams.
The meaning of colorful objects is something we’re very interested in. Therefore, as you can imagine, we’ve written extensively on the topic of different colored items. We enjoy explaining what the color of an object means, when combined with what the object means in isolation.
