What does it mean when you dream about an alley?

An alleyway may simply be one form of the symbol of the path, which indicates seeking, transformation, and the transition from one stage of life to another. Alleys have certain other connotations, however, such as that of a shortcut, a sidetrack, or a dead end. Alleys also convey a sense of being narrow and limited, therefore requiring that they be followed closely. In contemporary society, alleyways often have sinister connotations as a location where one might be attacked. As with all dream symbols, the tone and setting of the dream determine which meaning is indicated.

1. A service way providing a secondary public means of access to abutting properties; a narrow passageway between or behind buildings, sometimes permitting traffic for only one lane of cars.
