In dreams, wind symbolizes the intellect.

It will depend on the force of the wind how we interpret the dream.

For instance, a breeze would suggest gentleness and pleasure.

An idea or concept we have is beginning to move us.

A gale might indicate a principle we feel passionately about, whereas a north wind might suggest a threat to our security.

Actually being in a gale indicates that we are being buffeted by circumstances that we feel are beyond our control. We are allowing those outside circumstances to create problems for us when actually we may need to look at what we are doing and either take shelter – to withdraw from the situation – or battle through to some form of sanctuary. When we experience a hurricane in a dream, we are sensing the force of an element in our lives that is beyond our control. We may feel we are being swept along by circumstances – or possibly someone’s passion – and are powerless to resist. You might also like to consult the entry for breeze.
