Using a telescope in your dream suggests the need to take a closer look at something. Your dreaming mind may be urging you to look at things from both a short—and a long-term view, as this may help you navigate through life’s sometimes choppy waters. In spiritual terms, a telescope can signify the art of clairvoyance—the ability to see the future from the perspective of the present. A magnifying glass may appear in your dream when something needs to be brought to your attention. You need to examine yourself minutely and become aware of the consequence of your actions.
