Detailed dream meaning...

Dreaming of a job that you held in the past can indicate holding on to the past in your own life – wanting things to be easier or being stunted in your emotions about doing things or making money.

When you dream about being at an old place of work and the business is empty or no longer in business your psyche is trying to tell you that it is time to take a new direction in your life. There are often life changes coming your way which may be difficult for you – especially if you are one that has been in the same industry for a long time. Sometimes it is foreshadowing to being fired or a layoff within a company.

If you dream of meeting someone from your old job and time has passed this is a good sign showing growth and maturation.

If you dream of a partner doing your old job or being at your old job and meeting someone that you are interested in – this indicates that you will start a relationship with someone that you meet through work (or that you would like to). Having sex or flirting at an old job is also indicative of someone coming you’re your life that you will meet through a work function.

In a dream if you go to work, but you end up not at your current work but your old job, this indicates unfinished business. You are likely holding too closely to old ways of doing things and in turn this is holding you back. Dreaming of an old job in this way is your psyche’s way of telling you that you need to let go and move forward in your thoughts.

  • Wanting a new job.
  • Meeting someone at work. (romantic)
  • Thinking about growth and development regarding work.
  • Not liking your current job.
  • Growing up / maturing in actions, deed, or viewpoints.
