Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings
A basket in your dream is symbolic of happiness, but only if it is full. Baskets represent different seasons.
It is also important to pay particular attention to what is inside of the basket. The basket itself symbolizes that, although you will be faced with difficulties, it is possible to overcome this failure and work towards a more successful and positive outcome in the future. If the basket in your dream is empty, it indicates that you will struggle for success in the near future.
If you are shopping and you attempt to fill a basket with goods, this represents that you are trying to build figurative bridges in your waking life in order to obtain future successes. If the contents of the basket have spoiled, ripped, or spilled, the dream can indicate that you may face failure in a project.

Detailed dream interpretation
If you dream of trying to fill the basket, but you do not remember the basket ever being full, or if you are frustrated in any way, then this dream suggests you often feel you simply do not have enough in life. You are rarely able to decide what it is you want in life. Therefore, it is crucial to understand that sometimes our attitude towards life must be clear in order to have a positive experience. Decide what is important to you—friends, family, success—and try to make gains in these areas.
If you wear a basket around your neck, you will receive a job offer or a request for help from somebody. If the basket in your dream is empty, your plans may not succeed or they will be difficult to get through. Baskets in dreams can sometimes predict loss. Be very careful with your investments if the basket in your dream is empty or tipped over. This dream can also tell you to take better care of yourself.
Seeing a basket with food foretells material safety. If the basket is full of flowers, you will enjoy some pleasant moments and experience happiness in your love life. A basket containing fruit means joy and hope. Buying a basket with various items, such as a gift basket, suggests prudence in your present relationships. If you dream of a basket made of gold, this represents abundance financially or personally.
If you see many baskets in your house it represents a literal or figurative flood, such as an unexpected income, as if the money is flooding your house and love is flooding your life. This dream can predict new opportunities in days to come, and a good financial income.
A beautiful basket in your dream is an omen of good news. If the basket is empty, your love is not shared. Seeing yourself weaving a wicker basket represents hard work and suffering. A small basket is a sign of financial worries, and the stability you enjoy at the moment could be a short term one. A full basket means great wealth, and material goods.
An overturned basket in your dream indicates deprivation of property, while an ugly basked tells you to be careful in your daily actions. It is not necessarily a bad omen. This kind of dream can just be a warning to be more careful in your daily activities.
