Dreams of a counter that stands between you and someone else represent formality and that you are keeping a professional distance.
If you dream of your hands on the surface of the counter, then this represents honesty.
If you dream of someone’s hands beneath a counter, then this represents dishonesty and underhanded motives. See Table.
To dream of counters, foretells that active interest will debar idleness from infecting your life with unhealthful desires.
To dream of empty and soiled counters, foretells unfortunate engagements which will bring great uneasiness of mind lest your interest will be wholly swept away.
