Your car tells you something about yourself.
It can reveal your state of health and emotions, and give you some signs of what to expect further up the road.
I created a list for you on car symbolism that you can apply to your daily life or to your dreams. You can apply this to your own car, other cars you see on the street, or cars driving around in your dreams. Do you have a blindspot or does your health require some tender loving care? Let these symbols guide you.
Are you a driver or passenger? Who is in control here?
- Driver — assertive, director, taking charge.
- Passenger – passive, letting others take charge.
In your dreams are you the driver or the passenger?
Accidents – represent conflicts with others or self.
- Head-on collusion – a major confrontation, mental (head) confusion.
- Run into a telephone pole – communications with others down.
- Skidding on ice – slippery situations. Watch your step.
- Rear-ended – financial conflicts with others. Our landlord hiked the rent two-hundred bucks and we were rear-ended around the same time.
- Multiple dents – feeling beaten up or victimized, self-destructive tendencies.
- DUIs – escaping life and responsibility for self. Rebellion that’s needed, but that’s turned against oneself. Who and what do you need to say no to?
Broken or missing mirrors or windows — vision impaired.
- Broken left sideview mirror – not taking care of yourself. Overextension in relationships.
- Broken right sideview mirror – busy and harried. Personal chaos. Overextension in work.
- Missing rearview mirror – better watch your back.
- Windshield broken — not seeing things clearly.
Flat tires or gas gauge low – reflects your energy levels.
- Flat Tires – you must be flat-out tired (listen to the pun). Rest is needed.
When I got married the first time, our minister arrived 30 minutes late to the ceremony because of a flat tire. What did that say about the marriage? Not so good.
- Out of gas – are you running on empty? Are you overdue for that vacation?
Signals out – lack of direction and one’s internal compass malfunctioning.
- Radio broken – communication down. Lots of static in relationships.
- Headlights out – difficulty seeing ahead, faulty belief systems (the head).
- Turn signals out – indecision and vascillation. Can’t seem to make up one’s mind. Impulsive. Unexpected detours.
Engine breakdowns – the condition of the central organs, especially your heart.
- Oil – condition of the blood, relationships with “blood relatives.”
- Oil leak – anemia. Possible infection. Low immunity.
- Engine problems – heart and lungs. Grief. I had the engine light come on one winter, and upon inspection, I discovered all the radiator fluid had leaked out. Within a few weeks of this car emergency, I had a serious case of bronchitis and asthma that lasted for months.
Structural damage – internal operating system needs an overhaul.
- Rust damage – cancerous conditions, arthritis, things eating away at you.
- Water damage – emotions out of control, depression, mounting problems and stresses.
- Car stolen – loss of identity, loss of self, and lack of protection (not being able to stand up for oneself). Starting over in some capacity.
Every car and car owner has a history. What has your car told you about yourself?
