Dream meaning of road

Traveling over a rough, unknown road in a dream, signifies new undertakings, which will bring little else than grief and loss of time.

A busy highway that is hard to drive on can mean that you are on a very busy and fast paced path in life. You may have too many things coming at you at once and it is time to let some things go.

The Open Road for Adventure

Do you see a wide open road like the one pictured above? This can mean you are seeking new opportunities. You may even see something promising in the distance, such as a brightly lit city. This can mean that you should pursue any new opportunities that are presented to you.

Driving backwards

Driving in reverse on a road can mean one of two things. It can mean that you are affected by something that may have happened in the past, or it can mean that you are needing to go back and look at something that happened a little more carefully.

Walking on a Road

Walking on a road symbolizes that you are looking for the right path for you to be on in your life. If you are walking with other cars speeding by, it could mean you are putting too much energy on comparing yourself to others.

If the road is bordered with trees and flowers, there will be some pleasant and unexpected fortune for you.

If friends accompany you, you will be successful in building an ideal home, with happy children and faithful wife, or husband.

To lose the road, foretells that you will make a mistake in deciding some question of trade, and suffer loss in consequence.

Road Trip

To dream that you are taking a road trip signifies your life journey and the decisions you make in life. If the road trip is a smooth one, then it indicates that you are transitioning smoothly through life’s events.

If the road trip is chaotic, then it denotes the many obstacles and issues in your waking life. Consider the destination and the stops that you make on your road trip.

Road Signs

To see road signs in your dream represent some advice and message that your subconscious is trying to convey. The road sign may be trying to guide you toward certain decisions. Consider what the road sign is saying and how you need to apply its message to an aspect of your daily life.

Road Rage

To dream that you have road rage indicates that your emotions are out of control. You feel that someone is out to get you. You need to find a better way to express your feelings or you or someone will get hurt.

A straight broad road in good condition signifies steady smooth and satisfying progress; but unpaved, bumpy, narrow, or twisting roads represent difficulties to be overcome, and the meaning of the dream will depend on the outcome of your dream action in relation to the road.

The road in your dream is a symbol of your path or direction in life. Your individual path is a combination of past choices you have made and current circumstances and decisions you are about to make that determine the road you’re on in any given moment. Such an image in a dream is representative of your current life path. It can be a snapshot of where you are and how you feel about the present moment in your journey. The more isolated the road, the more the dream relates to your private life and personal issues. A public or widely traveled road will likely connect to aspects of your life that are more social in nature.
