Desolation, curse, depravation, Lam. 4:8
Vision: Seeing soot: you have to finish an unpleasant task, but you will be successful. Cleaning a sooty Oven or Chimney: you have trusted people and have been bitterly disappointed— or is it the other way around?
Depth Psychology: Soot is a warning: others are trying to slander and gossip about you. You are losing faith—or have you “soiled” yourself (See the chapter “Colors in Dreams—Black”). Sometimes the dream refers to an unpleasant task—”a dirty job”—that needs to be finished. See Pitch.
1. If soiled by it, one feels guilty of having done something wrong.
2. There has been a ﬁery confrontation, and all that remains of the conﬂict is soot.
Dreams of soot signify negative belief systems and the residue from past hurts, shock and pain from the fire of a relationship. See Dirt.
If you see soot in your dreams, it means that you will meet with ill success in your affairs. Lovers will be quarrelsome and hard to please.
Quarrels with lover, husband, wife or friend are portended by a dream of soot.
