Dreaming about Mandrake meaning

Live search on page

In general:

In ancient times the mandrake root is a symbol of masculinity. It was often used in magical ceremonies and therefore she was given a similar meaning as a doll in the voodoo cult. When a man meets a mandrake root in a dream or a mannequin, he makes contact with the deeply hidden desire to hurt other people. Both objects may also press a conflict with humans. It is interesting that the mandrake root is also a symbol of the “Great Mother” and therefore symbolizes the feminine aspect. In witchcraft, the witch is thus a connection with the destructive force of their own self-ago.


In a dream symbol like the mandrake lies the duality of creation: it is a plant that can be cured with or killed. Dreaming of the requirement here is to decide and to take responsibility for his decision.


The power over life and death is on a spiritual level the right to live, as it conforms to the beliefs of the dreamer.

Explanation & Definition:

Short explanation
A Mediterranean plant of the nightshade family, with white or purple flowers and large yellow berries.

Complete definition
Mandrake is the common name for members of the plant genus Mandragora, particularly the species Mandragora officinarum, belonging to the nightshades family (Solanaceae). Because mandrake contains deliriant hallucinogenic tropane alkaloids such as atropine, scopolamine, apoatropine, hyoscyamine and the roots sometimes contain bifurcations causing them to resemble human figures, their roots have long been used in magic rituals, today also in neopagan religions such as Wicca and Germanic revivalism religions such as Odinism.

Synonyms of mandrake
noun: mandragora; plural: mandragora; related terms: devil’s apples, Mandragora, officinarum, herb, herbaceous plant, genus Mandragora, Mandragora, mandrake root.

    I dreamed that i found myself in a hill with potatoes and Mandrake roots as I walked by the potatoes would just grow instantly ready to be picked and then someone said “let me show you this and they pulled out a mandrake root and it cried like a baby and they detached it from the ground” then I woke up.

    I dreamt I was standing by a herb box. An older woman (don’t remember who it was) came up to me and said “you’re pregnant.” Suddenly a second old woman appeared next to her (seems like it could have been my mother-in-law). I didn’t reply, stunned as I was, when she and my maybe-mother-in-law reached over to the herb box and each pulled a different version of a mint plant. The first color was bright green and the second color was muted almost gray green (which is popular in our culture). When they pulled their respective herbs, the roots were filled with baby shapes. Each had at least four of five shapes attached to them. The same lady that spoke to me earlier said, “see?” as they both showed me the roots. That’s all I can really remember about the dream.
    *Note, I am not pregnant!

    I dreamt that I dug up some Mandrake root (I knew what it was in my dream) from my garden. The root was very large & I struggled to pull it out. Eventually with some effort I carried it under my arm into my kitchen….I don’t recall any more of the dream.
