Dream Symbol: map or directions

map or directions

Guidance or direction, or a desire for it.

Trying to figure out directions, as with a map, compass, recipe, or other source of directions, can mean you're trying to figure out how to find a solution, get certain results, or answer a question.

Not being able to figure out directions can mean you're feeling stuck in terms of finding the solution, results, or answer you seek.

Directions that contain important symbols can represent the idea of or need for direction in your life. Consider what the symbols mean to you, and consult the separate listings for them.

Tips to Understand Dream Meaning

Dream symbol meanings are different for each person. It's IMPORTANT to consider:

  • Personal meaning - What the dream symbol means to you, what it reminds you of, how it makes you feel.
  • Context - How the dream symbol appears in the dream. For example, in a dream about a bee - what was the bee doing, how and where it was doing it, and how did you feel about it?
  • Look beyond the obvious - A dream is often about something other than its obvious meaning. Physical events in the dream commonly represent mental or emotional matters.
