Check out your subconscious Highway Code to interpret the meaning of that car dream.


Dreams involving cars and driving can tell you a lot about your state of mind. So are you in the driving seat and in control? Or spluttering with road rage?

Dreaming of motoring along represents how your life’s going, especially in connection with your ambitions and determination.

If you’re enjoying the experience, the world’s your oyster. You’re happy in yourself and master of all that you survey! However, if the journey’s uncomfortable, the road ahead threatens to be a bumpy ride. And should you lose control, enough said!

Road rage shows paranoia, a feeling someone’s out to get you. Or that you’re not on top of your emotions and have been hurt.

The type of car model will reveal all sorts of things about your emotional state, so remember those details!

If it’s a sleek, streamlined Ferrari, you exude self-assurance and mastery, and things really seem to be working out for you. However, an old banger suggests tiredness and lack of confidence. Maybe your tried and tested methods or ways are now past their sell-by-date. A van implies a heavy workload or a situation you’re finding threatening or worrying.

If you’re a passenger, someone else is in the driving seat – obviously! You don’t feel on top of things and people could be taking you for a ride.

If the car won’t start, do you feel powerless or lack self-esteem? And if it’s parked up, it’s time to stop what you’ve been doing and get on to something else entirely different.

As for a flat tyre, you’re not progressing in the way that you want as something’s put a spanner in the works!

Or have you come to a standstill? This means you’re experiencing frustration at the delay of your plans or dreams.

Slamming on the brakes isn’t an emergency stop. Rather it shows your ability to compromise and work out a solution to a difficult situation.

So now you know! Next time your dream involves cars, it might just be telling you something wheely important.
