I just remembered this lovely dream... we had an airplane to ourselves... once we arrived at a very distant land with a crowded terrain for its arriving or departing airplanes. We felt a little uncomfortable then, the people seemed strange, but the country on its own seemed fun. When we wanted to go back, there was something wrong with our plane, but we also had difficulties taking off in that terrain, so we strapped the airplanes with ropes up front and started walking in search for a suitable terrain for it to take off, mostly straight and smooth. We went through pastures and through little ways and steps, close to little houses, trying to find that terrain. We eventually end up in the middle of a road, the straightest terrain we could find, though still was a road of soil, and, between passing cars, we flew up to the sky towards home or wherever we were heading at.
To see an airplane in your dream, indicates that you will overcome your obstacles and rise to a new level of prominence and status. You may experience a higher consciousness, new-found freedom and greater awareness. Perhaps you need to gain a better perspective or wider view on something. If the airplane is taking off, then it suggests that an idea or plan is about to "take off" and be put into action. It may also represent you need to get away and escape from your daily life.
To dream that you are flying an airplane, suggests that you are in complete control of your destination in life. You are confident and self-assured in your decisions and accomplishments.
To dream that you transfer planes, implies an important transitional phase in your life which will take you away from your intended path. These changes will take you to new directions and new heights of status and recognition.
To dream that you miss your connection flight, indicates that you are feeling helpless and trapped by some situation. You feel that you are being held back, either physically or mentally. Alternatively, the dream may also suggest that you are feeling disconnected in some aspect of your life - work, relationship or home life.
To dream that a plane crashes, suggests that you have set overly high and unrealistic goals for yourself. Your goals may be too high and are impossible to realize. You are in danger of having it come crashing down. Alternatively, your lack of confidence, self-defeating attitude and self-doubt toward the goals you have set for yourself is represented by the crashing airplane; you do not believe in your ability to attain those goals. Loss of power and uncertainty in achieving your goals are also signified.
To dream that an airplane is hijacked, signifies disturbing feelings and past emotions in your unconscious mind.
Dreaming of an airplane indicates of a search for freedom, adventure and advancement. You will be reaching higher levels of success, and sharper consciousnes. It might also fortell that you are about to escape from your daily routine and go in new directions. It might also indicate that it is time for you to go on a trip.
People often dream about being in a plane crash, witnessing a crash, or being bombed or shot at from planes. Aeroplanes, like all other vehicles, symbolise a portion of your life's journey. The part of your life that is represented is usually a memory, material from your unconscious mind, or something that is physically far away from you. Since we use planes to travel to places that are far away, the logical progression of this interpretation is that the aeroplane is symbolic of an event, individuals, or emotions that are either in the past, physically apart from you, or deep in the unconscious and far from conscious thought. Disturbing dreams in which you are being bombed or where you see a bloody crash scene may be trying to bring up issues and feelings that have been buried in the unconscious mind (from the past or the present) but are still powerful and disturbing to the dreamer. The more powerful, vivid, and disturbing this dream is, the greater the necessity to interpret and obtain a satisfactory meaning.
Traditionally, a dream about seeing a plane or being on a plane means good luck. However, tradition also says that a dream of a plane crash foretells bad luck.
To dream that you find something, suggests that you are coming into contact with some aspect of your psyche or unconscious. You are recognizing a part of yourself that was previously repressed or undeveloped. Alternatively, it represents change.

To see a road in your dream, refers to your sense of direction and how you are pursuing your goals. If the road is winding, curvy, or bumpy in your dream, then it suggests that you will encounter many obstacles and setbacks toward achieving your goals. You may be met with unexpected difficulties. If the road is dark, then it reflects the controversial or more frightening choices which you have made or are making.
If the road is smooth and bordered by trees or flowers, then it denotes a steady progress and steady climb up the social ladder. If the road is straight and narrow, then it means that your path to success is going as planned.
To see an unknown road in your dream, represents a path that has not been ventured. You are setting a new precedence for something.

To dream of an end to something, represents an achievement or goal that has been reached. It may also mean that the bad times are coming to an end. Or perhaps your time is running out and you need to come to a decision about some issue. The end of something also signals the beginning of something new.
This is a symbol which is very common in iconography all over the
world. It embraces the following essential ideas: ascension, gradation, and communication between different, vertical levels. In the Egyptian system of
hieroglyphs, steps constitute a determinative sign which defines the act of ascending; it forms part of one of the appellations of Osiris, who is invoked as ‘he
who stands at the top of the steps’. Ascending, then, can be understood both in
a material and in an evolutive and spiritual sense. Usually, the actual number of
steps involved in the symbol is of symbolic significance. In Egyptian images, the
number tends to be nine: the triple ternary which symbolizes the gods of the
ennead who, together with Osiris, make up the symbolic number ten which
stands for the completed cycle or the return to unity (19). A great many Egyptian
tombs have yielded up amulets in the shape of ladders. The Book of the Dead
says: ‘My steps are now in position so that I may see the gods.’ Eliade has
pointed out parallel images, such as the following: Among many primitive peoples,
mythic ascension is indicated by means of a rope, a stake, a tree or a mountain
(symbolizing the world-axis). Or, according to an Oceanian myth, the hero reaches
heaven by means of the fantastic hyperbole of a chain of arrows. And in Islamic
tradition, Mohammed saw a ladder which the just climbed up to reach God (17).
To refer again to primitive belief, Schneider observes that in order to ‘reach’ the
mountain of Mars and reap its benefits, one must ascend the ladder of one’s
forebears—suggesting a biological and historical source for the mystic symbol of
the ladder. Hence steps are also one of the most notable symbols in ancestral rites
(50). Images specifically connected with the steps are the mountain, and architectural structures incorporating steps, such as the Egyptian pyramid of Sakkara,
the Mesopotamian ziggurats, or the teocallis of America of pre-Columbian days;
we have then a synthesis of two symbols—that of the ‘temple-mountain’ and
that of the steps—signifying that the entire cosmos is the path of ascension
towards the spirit. In Mithraism, the ceremonial steps were seven in number,
each step being made of a different metal (as was each different plane of the
ziggurat in a figurative sense). According to Celsus, the first step was of lead
(corresponding to Saturn). The general correspondence with the planets is selfevident. Now, this idea of gradual ascent was taken up particularly by the alchemists from the latter part of the Middle Ages onwards; they identified it sometimes with the phases of the transmutation process. In Stephan Michelspacher’s
work Die Cabala, Spiegel der Kunst und Natur (1654), the following graded scale
is given: Calcination, Sublimation, Solution, Putrefaction, Distillation, Coagulation, Tincture, leading to a kind of shrine inside a mountain (32). According to the Zohar, the ladder which Jacob is said to have seen in his dreams had seventy-two
rungs and its top disappeared into the clouds (39). Broadly speaking, in emblems
and allegories throughout the Middle Ages, it is the ascending (affirmative) aspect
of the steps which predominates, emphasized by the signs and symbols clustering round the ladder. Bayley points out that many steps are surmounted by a
cross, the figure of an angel, a star or a fleur-de-lis (4) located on the border itself.
In Romanesque art, and generally in the thought characteristic of the period, the
steps are the symbol of the ‘relationship between the worlds’ (14, 20), but it
must not be forgotten that, within the spatial symbolism of level, there are not
two grades indicating two different worlds (the terrestrial or intermediary and the
celestial or upper) but three (through the addition of a third: the infernal or lower
world). This is why Eliade (for reasons of psychology as well) states that the
steps are a vivid image of ‘breaking through’ the levels of existence in order to
open up the way from one world to another, establishing a relationship between
heaven, earth and hell (or between virtue, passivity and sin). Hence, steps located
beneath the level of the earth are always a symbol for an opening into the infernal
regions. In Bettini’s Libro del monte santo di Dio (Florence, 1477), steps are
shown superimposed upon a mountain; to emphasize the parallel—and indeed
identical—symbolism of the mountain and the ladder, the former is portrayed as
if it were terraced and the terraces are shown to be the rungs of the ladder. On
these rungs are the names of the virtues: Humility, Prudence, Temperance, Fortitude, Justice, Awe, Mercy, Science, Counsel, Understanding and Wisdom. The
steps are portrayed as if chained to the mountainside. On the peak of the mountain is a mandorla formed of angels with Christ in the centre. (Plate XXVI).
To dream that you ascend steps, denotes that fair prospects will relieve former anxiety.
To decend them, you may look for misfortune.
To fall down them, you are threatened with unexpected failure in your affairs.
To see steps in your dream, represent your efforts in achieving your goals, ambitions and material gains. The dream may be telling you to take things one at a time. Or that you need to take a chance and take that first step toward your goals or dreams. Alternatively, the dream signifies your closeness to your spirituality or religious beliefs.
To dream that you are sitting on the steps, suggests that you need to pause from life's demands and reevaluate your decisions, challenges, goals, and path before continuing on.
