Parking Lot

(dreams)
These are interesting symbols and many people have requested including the dictionary. Traveling is a very common theme in our dreams, and traveling in a car the most common. Traveling in a vehicle generally represents our journey through life, or a portion of it. Finding yourself in a garage or a parking lot can be interpreted in several different ways. First, consider the content of your dream and your current dilemma or situation in life. The parked car could represent a period of inactivity and indecision in your life. The dream could be pointing out that you have been idle for a period of time and that it may be a good time to “get a move on.” The more positive interpretation of this dream may be that the parked car is symbolic of a reflective period or mood. You may be in “park” for a while so that you can rest, relax, regroup, and think things over.
