Dream meaning of column

To see columns in your dream symbolize strength and hard work. You may be feeling burdened or drained in some way or that you find yourself needing to support others.

The single column pertains to the cosmic group of symbols representing the ‘world-axis’ (such as the tree, the ladder, the sacrificial stake, the mast, the cross), but also it may have a merely endopathic sense deriving from its vertical nature, implying an upward impulse of self-affirmation. Of course, there is a phallic implication too; for this reason, the ancients ascribed a column and a dolphin to Ceres as emblems of love and the sea respectively.

Columns symbolize strength and work, as they usually hold something up. They also represent organization (e.g., columns of numbers to classify groups of entries in accounting, columns of soldiers).

A dream about columns may indicate the dreamer is trying to hold up under burdens or to support others.

A column symbolizes support and firmness. The image of the two columns, however, represents vital and balanced opposites: the couple, marriage, emotion and action, the father and the mother, etc. In oneiric terms, two columns are the eternal stability and the hole through which you access the eternal matters.

If one of them breaks down it means that you are losing balance, either because of a disease or because you have abandoned your convictions.

The vision of a column promises prestige and influential friends; many (all aligned), honors and power. A column breaking down indicates loss of friends, misfortunes. Climbing it ensures popularity and renewal; falling off it, losing friends.
