Since strength is a feature of any bar, such an image becomes the symbol of our spiritual power, and power in everyday life. Interpretations can vary; a blockade, for instance, prevents us from wrong action, whereas a public house suggests a relaxed atmosphere and attitude. An iron bar suggests that we should look at how rigid or aggressive we are being in our behaviour. To be standing at a bar may represent a barrier to our sexual enjoyment or an awareness that we should preserve the status quo in our lives. We need to handle ourselves with strength of purpose and are seeking acceptance from our peer group in some aspect of everyday life. In a mans dream an iron bar might suggest an assertive nature, whereas in a woman?s dream it is more likely to signify aggression or to have sexual connotations. Also consult the entry for Barrier.
