Common symbol of the self, “the direction we are headed in our lives.” A more immediate symbol than planes and trains and ships (which indicate larger concerns and transitions) due to its ubiquity in everyday living. Dreams of brake failure and difficulty steering are common metaphors for feelings of being out of control, emotionally, in our lives.
Difficulty “seeing the road ahead” indicates uncertainty about the future. Being a passenger instead of a driver indicates someone else is “steering your life.” (Can you identify the influence?) New cars are associated with new jobs, new relationship status (marriage, pregnancy, new role as mother, father) and new projects. Flat tires and cars with mechanical problems reflect depression, and a need to revitalize the physical body.
Dreams of car accidents, as a rule, should not be considered literally precognitive. They are reflections of emotional “loss of control,” however, which causes excessive behaviors and erratic decisions in waking life.
