What Does it Mean to Dream of a Stop Sign?

To dream of seeing a stop sign:

This may be an indicator that you need to stop your current activity in waking life and take time to look around before proceeding. Is there something you need to literally stop doing in your life?

Most stop signs are also the color red. Red can often be a color that means warning or an abuse of power. Red is also the color of the root chakra. Learning about the meanings of color symbols can be helpful to understand why the red color of a stop sign is important.

To come to a complete stop at a stop sign in your dream:

This suggests that there is some area of your life that you need to be patient and wait for. If you stop at the stop sign and then resume driving again you can be sure you have a relatively short wait for the things you currently desire.

If you do not proceed forward or you are stopped for what seems like an unusually long time this may mean that you must take the time to contemplate your next moves or that there are things standing in the way of you progressing.

By identifying in waking life the obstacles that are prohibiting you from moving forward and recognizing which things you have control over, you can begin to more effectively take the steps you need to work toward progressing in your life.

To drive through a stop sign in your dream:

This is a sign that you are taking life too fast, not obeying the rules set before you and that you are not taking the time to cautiously and mindfully navigate on your life path.

This is a wake up call to slow down in order to open yourself up to greater awareness and greater likelihood that you will experience otherwise missed opportunities.

  1. I had this dream that I was riding a skateboard on a side walk. The sidewalk squares were uneven (quite like the average) so I was being careful not to trip because I had remembered in my walking life, I didnt know how to ride one. But at the same time, it didnt feel like a dream.
    As I was riding, I was slowly approaching a human like figure made of stop signs.
    The head was a big stop signs and each section of the body was made of smaller stop signs.
    As I got closer to this figure of stop signs something was telling me to not go closer to it as if something bad was going to happen. I ignored the potential red flag and passed the figure on my skateboard. I then had to turn around, and the the back of the figure was then made of crossing signs (I live in Canada, so idk if these signs look different anywhere else in the world. But these songs are bright yellow with a black silhouette of a human walking)

  2. I cannot think of anything I dreamt before this short stop sign dream. Just before waking up, I saw an old type stop sign. The one with the little red circle on top and the S-T-O-P letters downwards. As I read it aloud, I saw next to it large S-T-O-P letters, larger than a metre plus, made out of rough wooden logs, about three inches thick. Like 3 inch thick branches cut in metre long peaces and put together to form the word STOP. As I woke up, I said the word STOP, and told my wife, as she entered the bedroom on that stage.
