What does it mean when you dream about a bubble?

Bubbles can represent anything from a womb (especially if one dreams of emerging from a bubble), to merriment (a glass of “bubbly”) to disenchantment (bursting one’s bubble). Any one of these connotations might be indicated, so bubble images must be interpreted in the larger context of the dream.
