What does it mean when you dream about dirt?

Dirt is associated with farming, and therefore with fertility and growth. Something underneath the ground symbolizes the unconscious. Because of the social importance of cleanliness, “dirtiness” has acquired many different connotations, from guilt, to unworthiness (“dirty white trash”), to sexuality (“dirty minds”).

(dreams)
Dreaming about dirt, as in something dirty, could represent your state of mind or a situation from your daily life. It could symbolize a relationship, a business venture, or any other part of your life where you or someone else has been less than honest and honorable. Dirt in your dreams could also represent your unwholesome attitudes and a devious state of mind. This dream, depending on its details, may be encouraging you to clean up “your act” inside and out. Dreaming about soil and the earth usually symbolizes fertility and the potential to grow. Rich soil may be an indication that the time is right for work and new beginnings. Dreaming about dry, barren soil may be a reflection of your negative mood. It may include feelings of depression or general feelings of boredom and emptiness.
