8 Dream Symbols That Point to Stress

8 Dream Symbols That Point to Stress

Crashes
Dreams of crashes—airplane, car, train, or otherwise—represent deep anxieties and fears. Many people fear these dreams are premonitions, but most likely they aren’t. Crashes can represent a feeling that your life is headed for disaster. Are you pushing yourself too hard? Are you feeling out of control? That out of control feeling may manifest itself in your dreams.

Dream Moods goes even further to break down crashes in dreams. If you dream of an airplane crash, you may have set high and unrealistic goals for yourself. Car crashes represent a shocking situation or a painful experience.

You may have many inner fears and repressed guilty feelings.

They can also show forthcoming finalities, like the end of a marriage or a career.

Bugs in our dreams—ants, spiders, moths, gnats, flies—could mean a number of things.

Miller says bugs are an indication that a “disgustingly revolting complication” will arise in your daily life.

Dream Moods takes bugs more literally, as in something is bugging you. To dream of bugs suggests you are worried about something and are filled with anxieties and fears.

A third interpretation is the bugs may represent your sexual thoughts.

Cats
Most experts agree on this one; dreaming of a cat foretells misfortune and bad luck.

Unless of course you’re a devout cat lover, and then it represents creativity, independence, and power.
