Dream Theme

Dreaming of cars
Vinaya Katoch Manhas

DREAMS of vehicles symbolise automation and movement. A car, besides being a symbol of movement, is also a symbol of status and of a desire for luxury.

As per Indian thought, to see yourself aboard a car is a bad omen. You could get entangled in a web of poverty and misery. Your desire for riches could lead you to a life of penury. So you are warned to be careful. To drive a car and to be involved in an accident warns you not to act in a hurry. Always think carefully before doing anything.

As per western thought, dreaming of cars signifies that journeys have to be undertaken. You shall soon either change your residence or your workplace, which shall mean shifting and travel. To see a car not stop for you when you ask for a lift means that attempts you make to forward your career and brighten up your prospects shall fail. To get off a car at a predetermined place is to successfully complete a task that you had embarked upon. All your plans will bear fruit. To see a street full of cars means that someone is doing his or her utmost to cause trouble to you.

Psychoanalytically speaking, cars represent our emotional self and our psyche. Driving a car all alone denotes your desire to lead an independent life, while applying brakes indicates that you are in full control of your life. Seeing an accident, denotes your fear of failure or of losing control. A car on fire indicates that the dreamer is facing a stressful situation. The stress can be physical or emotional. To reverse your vehicle is to rethink a decision you had made earlier. To drive your car carelessly denotes an attitude of irresponsibility.

A 32-year-old man would often see himself driving a car, but halfway through the journey he would find himself in the passenger seat, with someone else driving the car. But he would never come to know who the driver was. This dream denotes the personís attitude to any task he undertakes. His first reaction was one of great enthusiasm. He was driven by a desire to achieve the goal, but halfway through the task he would begin to lose his drive and enthusiasm. After that he would be in a hurry to palm off the responsibility to another person.
