Stars may also symbolize a big change or turning point in a person's life, but they are also seen as a sign of sorrow. If a person follows a star in their dream, this might be a sign that he or she is ambitious or has intuitive gifts. If the stars that are visualized during dreams are dull or red in color, this might symbolize that there is a looming problem that has not been dealt with.
