There is something about cars and people since we often are fascinated by them, men adored them, and it is seen as the symbol of power and strength, or the symbol of mystery and hard life, for those who are homeless, and are “living in a car”.
It is a sign of a better life, if you have a dream of a wonderful new car, as when you buy it, it will be the symbol of success.
So, a car could mean a lot of things, all of them could mean both good and bad things, depending on your personal relationship with the car.
If you enjoy riding a car, then a car could be a symbol of a joyful ride, happy moments, and a happy place for you; while for a person who had a car accident, or lost someone for it, a car could be a symbol of bad luck and unfortune.
For you personally, what kind of symbol is a car?
Do you have any special relation to it, and if you do, what kind?
This answer will reveal a lot about the meaning of a car for you in a symbolic way.
Here, we will explore what it means when you have a dream about a car, and not just any car, we are talking about the red car, as we could imagine that this color is the symbol of luxury and passion, but also it is the symbol of blood, therefore a tragedy and pain.
So, in this combination, a red car, appearing in a dream, could vary a lot – its meaning a lot depends on your relationship to the car, but also on the red color.
Do you love it, is it a sign of passion, or is this just a sign of pain…
Dreams are mysterious places, where virtually anything could happen, where your dreams can become true, and where your worst nightmares are possible and feel so real.
Dreaming about the car in general
To dream of a car represents your present life course, as well as your aims and reason to shift from plan to plan.
There are two significant cases – first of all, the dream about the car most commonly is associated with the world where your all agendas are made to be true.
All that you desire to be and to become in life, but here we mean the highest possible dreams there are; this is the dream that speaks of your personal journey, about the way we are living our lives and the place where we want to be in life, in the near or more distant future.
Regarding the car, it is different if you had a dream that you are the driver or that you are just the passenger in a car; is the car old or brand new, etc?
All of this makes a huge difference in the interpretation of the dream.
In any case, you should put all in context that a car is a metaphorical interpretation of your life, in terms of choices you make along the way, and that is directing you toward a certain destination.
Being a driver in a car suggests that you are the type of a person who, if you are not a driver, in reality, wants to desperately take control over your life, and this is a very significant dream in this sense.
It shows that you are going through some experiences that are not very good and that you are desperately attempting to do something for yourself, and although you are not able to do it in reality, the dream world is responding to your desire.
You are mentally preparing yourself for such an endeavor, for a process that will be hard on you, for sure.
But, on the contrary, if you are not being a driver in a car, in a dream, that case, such a dream shows that you are still not ready to take control over your life, and it is a shame because you are missing out on a lot for sure.
And the worst part is that maybe you are not being aware that you are missing out on life, and the change of perspective is the worst part.
It is the hardest part of all to admit to yourself that you indeed need some help and taking over charge of your life, and for that matter have in mind that the lowest of all feelings is the one where you feel that you do not have any control over your life.
So, in this part of the symbolical explanation, the car is simply the transportation, but it is the journey of the way you are living your life, and for that matter, it is relevant to what kind of a life you live, is it nice and smooth and safe, or is it risky, and carless and maybe even uncomfortable?
Often times dreams where you are driving through the water have a completely different meaning – it is related to the emotional life, with feelings, and the way you are going through life.
Now, depending on the environment is that water muddy or clear, you can get a sense of what are you going through in life.
If the water is muddy, that case shows that your life has been muddy, that your emotions are suffocating you, and that you are looking for the best way to get out of that situation.
Will you find it, depends.
But if the water you are going through is clear, in that case, you are very clear about who you are and the path you going on in life.
On your life journey things are becoming more and more clear and each day passes, things are becoming more clear and you are becoming stronger.
In some cases, for example, if the red car is going through the clear water, has got to do with two things:
One- is the dream that speaks of your flooded ambition, and the other has got to do with your inner feelings that are drowning.
In any case, this could be a wake-up call to make things clear or ask yourself why you have given up on some ambition of yours.
Is there any objective reason, or is that simply your feeling that you could not make it, so you thought that it is the best thing you can do, to give up?
Was that good decision is up to you, your inner feeling will tell you the best were you right.
Now, if in a dream you are driving the car and you are going too fast, in that case, this dream may remind you to slow down, and that you are missing out on the small things in life, as you are speeding past them.
Slow down, you are making the path short, and you are not being able to enjoy it fully.
Relax from time to time, and start moving in the first gear.
If the car is moving too slow, in that case, this dream means that you are not being able to move toward your direction at the right pace, and this is why you are feeling that you are going too slow; but the fact is that you are not missing out on anything.
In case you are seeing a car but one that cannot move, suggests that currently in your something is going on that is causing you to feel helpless and like you are waiting for others to resolve your situation.
There is a feeling like you have to fix something in your life, but, on the other hand, you think that you do not know how to do it.
This dream is a call to wake up from this sleepiness and a feeling of helplessness and to move forward, in the process of resolving any issues you may have been experiencing.
Many people have a dream that they cannot find a car – regardless of the place, maybe it is a parking lot, or you simply do not know where is your car.
Such a dream may indicate is a dream that speaks of an unhealthy feeling that you are having inside of you.
It is a one-of-a-kind unpleasant feeling that is lurking inside of you, and the fact is that if you do not resolve it, you will be in a problem for sure.
It is like your life has stopped, and there is no chance to move on if you do not “find your car”, or resolve that issue.
Red Car Dream Meaning
Now, in the previous section, we spoke of the most common scenarios that were relevant to the dream where there is a central motive a car.
As you were able to see, dreams about the car are very common and very important as they speak of our lives, the way we live them, and what is more important, the obstacles that we encounter very often.
But, these dreams are also very educational, as we can find ways how to deal with such issues.
Sometimes, dreams can be very specific, and for that matter here one takes a special place, as it is very interesting to look at.
It is a dream where the central theme is a red car.
Two accents here are what matters – the car, as one of the most important symbols, of a life journey that we take; and the red color of the car, as the color of life itself.
Now, if you had a dream that the red car from a dream was brand new, in that case, this is the dream that reflects the magnificence of judgments, efficiency, or a path in life that is unbeatable, and that you should keep going on that path as you have planned.
Such a dream shows that you are the type of person who feels like you are a victor with an influential way of handling the problem.
On the other side of the story, if the red car from your dream was old, rusty; in that case, this dream suggests that you are currently experiencing some form of vulnerability, in a certain part of your life, and that you do not know how to move forward anymore.
In some cases, this dream suggests that you are experiencing a lack of aid that you feel is quite necessary for you, or alternatively, you experience a lack of authority over a problem that you have in life.
If the red car from your dream was completely destroyed, that case, such a dream suggests certain dissatisfactions are going to occur in the future. Since the red car is associated with ambition and goals, such a dream could symbolize that you are currently not in a position to achieve an idea and that a certain relationship will come to an end.
What is even worse, it seems that things will come to an end in the most unexpected way.
Advice for all those who had such a dream is to try to fill their lives with as many useful things and people as very promptly, you will need them as support.
Now, one very important version of this dream – the one in which the red car is turned on the side, or the red car from your dream is thumbed over on its top, then means that something is stopping you from making your dreams become reality.
It is quite possible that you are putting your goals on delay just because of your other obligations.
If the beautiful red car from your dream has been broken, and you are trying to fix it, in that case – such a dream comes as a symbol of your attempts to go back to the right place in life.
The place where you will become to be a person who is responsible for your actions in life; as along the way you have lost that ability, to make choices for yourself.
Now, if you had a dream that you are stealing the red car, in that case, such a dream indicates that you are denied of your individuality or power to make practical judgments.
It could be a choice regarding work, or maybe a failed connection, or some events where you sense your role is jeopardized. You have a sense that the problem is not fair.
If you had a dream that you are behind the wheel of a red car, that you have stolen, then such a dream is a symbol of visionary backup and undercover worries.
You may be setting yourself under stress by doing things you don’t enjoy. The dream means that you unplug yourself from new opportunities and views.
If you, at the moment you have this dream find yourself in some kind of an emotional connection, then it suggests that everything is becoming more weighty.
In the context of the transformations taking place in your life, you may be forced to commit to self-examination to empty your introspections and sense of comfort.
Dreaming that the red car in your dream is dropping into the water, that dream represents tension as you attempt to take command of a problem.
In fact, you show the ability to make judgments is overpowered by harmful feelings or difficulties that are too big to handle.
In case you have been in a red racing car, then such a dream comes as a symbol of your internal need to be in every situation a winner, as there is a need to always compare yourself to others.
This is not healthy, and if you are the driver in that car, then such a dream indicates that you enjoy your life to be complete and attempt to get the most out of all things in life, even at the cost of your internal well-being.
