What does it mean when you dream about a sack?

Dreaming about a large sack, particularly one that a person might fit into, might be a womb symbol. Alternatively, corpses are sometimes placed in sacks, so a sack can suggest death as well. The dream might also be alluding to idioms such as “getting sacked” or “hitting the sack.” (See also Bag).

bag, sack
