What does it mean when you dream about the eleventh hour?

The eleventh hour is a widespread symbol for indicating that one’s time is almost up, referring either to death or to a deadline. Among certain Christian groups, it is a symbol for the short time remaining before Christ’s return. Dreaming about a clock face reading eleven o’clock often expresses anxiety about a deadline.
