The meaning of Adrift in dream | Dream interpretation

The Dream Books Symbols | Betty Bethards

This is indicative of a problem you have been unable to solve, or unwilling to face up to, and is a straightforward obstacle dream.

If you reached land safely, you will overcome your dilemma, but if you fell out of the boat or were upset by rough weather, it is a warning of serious difficulty due to indecision.

If you were rescued in your dream, or managed to swim to safety, success will follow hardship. 

The Bedside Dream Dictionary | Silvana Amar

To dream that you are Adrift in a boac is a warning of difficulty ahead—it is an obstacle dream.

If you reach land safely, you will overcome your troubles, but if you fall out of the boat, or if the boat should be upset by rough waves, then expect very serious difficulties. Even then you may swim to land, or be rescued, which would indicate ultimate success.

An anchor dragging through water or sand represents things that weigh you down, and hold you back.

An anchor holding firm in a torrential sea speaks of your personal need for security and stability.

If you haven’t reinforced your foundations lately, do so.

Anchors are also connected to the sea and sailing (see Boat, Water). In earlier times when ships carried valuable goods to port, such an arrival was heartily welcomed. So, sailors and things associated with their trade became “lucky.” Perhaps your ship is soon to “come in” and stay for a while!

Safety or improved vitality. In ancient Egypt, an anchor cross became a variation of the ankh, the emblem of life, around 4-5 C.E. This emblem was used frequently as a seafaring amulet.

A ship that lacks an anchor represents being adrift, going from one idea or goal to another without ever accomplishing anything.... The Language of Dreams

Anchors generally convey positive connotations of security, stability, and a harbor against storms. Large bodies of water frequently symbolize the unconscious (or, sometimes, the emotions), making boats vehicles for negotiating the unconscious. Anchors may thus indicate a stable relationship with the unconscious or shelter against the “storms” of the emotions. Loss of an anchor indicates feeling adrift. Less positively, anchors may symbolize a resistance to change or a clinging to a sense of security.

As with all dream symbols, the tone and setting of the dream indicate which interpretation is appropriate.... Dream Symbols in The Dream Encyclopedia
