Dreams of a pedestal signify that you are grappling with “better than/less than” issues. Perhaps your subconscious mind is giving you the message that your unrealistic delusions of grandeur that you project on others or yourself are destined to fail, because we are all equally magnificent, loveable and worthy of success. Alternatively, if you dream of someone being on a pedestal, then they might be helping you to aspire toward a goal or vision. See Celebrity.
