What does it mean when you dream about a basket?

For traditional psychiatrists, baskets, like almost any receptacle into which something can be put, can represent the female principle. Baskets have more general connotations with harvests, babies, baked goods, and so forth, any of which could be indicated, depending on what the dreamer sees in the basket during her or his dream. An empty basket, on the other hand, can symbolize a feeling of emptiness or a sense of lack. (See also Bag).
