Road Dream Meaning and Interpretations


Road Dream Symbol – Dreaming of a road indicates the current direction your life is taking. This type of dream is directly linked to what is happening right now in your waking life. Depending on the type of road and its direction, it represents your daily issues.

Breaking down on a road indicates people come to you for advice. Walking down a road signifies you are heading in the right direction. Going on a road trip represents your desire to escape from the challenges and responsibilities of everyday life. Reaching a dead-end can mean you will need to finish a project sooner than expected or you will soon have to make a choice.

road-dreamDreaming of a dark, narrow alley represents your life has come to a standstill. It is stagnating. It represents how you may feel about your life. Making a detour indicates to stay flexible for there are surprises coming soon. Remain open-minded to new opportunities that cross your path. You are following your intuition when traveling down a dirt road. This can also mean old habits return. Someone lost to you previously returns to your life.

A bend in the road indicates there are unexpected changes coming. This is a warning to be prepared. Crossroads also signify changes. This can mean any decisions you need to make will require you to give something up. The choice is hard as this is not what you want to do. Remember, this may be for the best though you cannot see it now. Dreaming of a fork in the road is another sign of making life-changing decisions. These decisions may be difficult because, either way, it may mean the end of something you love.

Dreaming of a black road means there are tough times ahead, particularly in regard to money. These issues are like to arise suddenly. Slipping on black ice in a dream indicates you need to remain organized or you will fall behind in your commitments.

You can overcome anything life throws you when you dream of going up a one-way street the wrong way. Roadworks indicate your own life is being overhauled. It is a time to go easy on yourself. You may be going through much change and need to make allowances for any mistakes that happen around you or that you make. Witnessing an accident on the road is a sign you lack direction in your life. Is your life a wreck? Is it heading in that direction?

Running out into the road can mean you are trying to succeed against the odds. Now is the right time to create whatever you dream about. A mountain road is a sign you like to do things differently to others. You may even love a lifestyle far removed from a city lifestyle where you are self-sufficient. You may want to avoid mainstream society. It may be time to reconnect with mother nature and her gifts of life.

Alternative Meanings of Road

A road in your dream is a symbol of achieving your goals. The quality and condition of the road that you dream about indicate how achievable your goals are, or how you feel about being able to achieve your goals.

If the road is wide and smooth, easy to drive on with a car, or ride on with a bicycle, this is a beneficial sign about your ability to achieve these goals. If, on the other hand, the road is bumpy or in bad repair, or if it is only a rocky path, then this means that you have a hard time ahead trying to achieve the dream that you want to achieve.

This does not necessarily mean that you should give up on your dream; in fact, the innovators of the world are almost always the ones who take the rocky or bumpy road instead of the smooth one. But you will need to be prepared for hardship and ready to continue no matter what, or you will fail and be in a worse place than the place in which you started.
