Coal symbolizes the hidden energy that is released only in contact with fire. This dream is an invitation to continue fighting because despite the odds, you can unleash energy, heat, or light that already existed in you.

To see coal is sign of wealth; to eat it, negative events. A burning coal is a harbinger of love, but also of shame and reproofs linked to erotic aspects.

A dream in which the blackness of the coal, coal mine, or coal pit was a feature is a warning to retrench and prepare for a period of financial embarrassment. However if the coal was burning brightly or you were stoking a coal fire, you can expect a promotion or satisfactory reward for past efforts. If you delivered the coal or gave it away, the augury is of sudden social advancement. To shovel coal presages many obstacles to overcome before you succeed.
