Stairs are about our ambitions or where we’re heading. Climbing stairs is a metaphor of your fierce ambition and ability to face up to challenges in your life.
• More generally stairs are believed to be indicative of the bridge between different states of being. Going up suggests you’re developing higher levels of consciousness and awareness and going down suggests you’re losing that awareness or delving into the realms of your unconscious. Lifts and escalators have similar meanings.
