(see Professions, Workers)

Concerns over your current work situation (or lack thereof), sometimes also related to how others perceive your performance on the job.

Unemployment: Seeing yourself unemployed in a dream has several potential interpretations. You may feel as if your professional skill or performance is somehow lacking.

If so, find productive ways to improve your confidence, like getting extra training. This can also be a type of money or poverty dream, as jobs and financial security are so closely related. Or perhaps something is happening that makes you feel uncertain about the future of your career.

If so, try to find the source of that apprehension.

Seeing yourself working can reveal that you are striving toward self-improvement. Look to see on what exactly you are working for more symbolism.

(see Apron, Closet, Costume, Hat, Jewelry, Mask, Shoes, Tie, Veil)

How do the clothes feel? Are they itchy or uncomfortable? If so, this reveals discomfort with yourself or a situation in which you’ve been placed.

Old or tattered clothing indicates self-neglect or feelings of inferiority.

Changing clothes: A transition in status, jobs, relationships, and the like.

A statement of individuality and how you see yourself (e.g., “clothes make the man”).

Rejecting or throwing away out-of-date clothing: New enterprises, loves, characteristics. Forsaking outmoded ways of thinking and living.

Each color of clothing has different oracular value. Yellow indicates financial progress, blue portends success from tenacious efforts, red reveals a timely deliverance from a difficult situation, green is prosperity and happiness, and mixed hues foretell swift changes.

Each item of clothing also has slightly different meaning, much of which is dependent on your perception.

For example, a businessman dreaming about tying his tie again and again might interpret this as too much attention to his appearance at

work instead of the work quality. Dreaming of tightening your belt probably relates to financial struggles.

Dirty clothing sometimes represents the soiling of someone’s virtues.

Cross-dressing represents a figurative “trying on” of masculine or feminine attributes that you wish to develop. This can also reveal a greater balance of the Yin-Yang energies within you (see Hermaphrodite, Homosexuality).... The Language of Dreams

In the Tarot, the emblem of earthly concerns—e.g., money, jobs, possessions.

An alternative circle symbol due to their shape.

Improved luck or finances. Found pennies, and coins with the date of your birth are tokens of good fortune. Similarly, in Old Europe turning a pocketed coin by the light of a crescent moon or burying a silver coin beneath your doorstep encourages fortuity and prosperity.

A positive change in the weather (literal or figurative). When sailing ships were a predominant mode of transportation, found coins would be tossed on deck or imbedded in the masthead to ensure fair weather and good winds.

Spiritual protection and well-being. Ancient Egyptians placed coins on a mummy’s eyes so that the deceased could pay the ferryman and move safely into the next life.

Each coin may have more than one connotation.

For example, pennies are luck)’, but in modern society they are also regarded as somewhat worthless. So, a dirty old penny bearing the year of your birth being passed by in your dream could expose poor self- images, for example.

Flipping coins: Choices to make, or the interaction of fate and “chance” in your life. ... The Language of Dreams

Example: I was in a race riding a horse but couldn’t get to the staning gate in time.

The others were way ahead of me jumping the fences. I couldn’t catch up, and one fence I came to grew to a huge height and was like a steel barrier. I couldn’t get over it and felt a failure’ (Ron S). Ron had not done well at school, had not taken any particular training, had no steady relationship or children. In his late 20s, Ron looked at his friends, married with families and steady jobs, and felt a failure. From the dream he realised he was viewing life as a competitive race to succeed. This was stopping him from fol­lowing his real interest, psychotherapy, which his family viewed as playing games. He could ride his horse into the fields and explore. He did, by going to Amenca, training, raising a family.

In general, failure indicates comparison; competitiveness; it sometimes depicts alternatives—failure is the alternative to success. So the failure might be ‘because’. See Is there a be­cause factor in the dream? in dream processing; falling. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences
