The meaning of Dust in dream | Dream interpretation
A dream of temporary calamity (Gypsy). Dust is the Christian symbol of humility and woe, but its effects are obviously temporary and easily thrown aside.
Not an auspicious omen.
It signifies an approaching period of annoyances, petty quarrels, and minor embarrassments; however, if you managed to clean it off, the adverse aura will soon disperse.
To dream of seeing a cloud of dust gathering or rolling indicates a new problem on your horizon which will only be overcome by prolonged effort
Being covered with dust in a dream indicates that you will be jilted by your lover.
To married folk it foretells serious vexations through their relatives or inlaws.
It is the sign of maximum destruction of matter. Therefore, dust has a negative meaning related to death.
Dreaming of dusty objects is also a symbol of abandonment and neglect.
It is evidence of the rejection of that which you haven’t even touched in a while. This may include aspects of yourself you are not aware of or have forgotten. Similarly, these aspects may be positive and refer to talent: the dream makes you aware of the artistic, musical, or creative skills that you do not use. The objects that are covered by this dust will give you a hint of the final oneiric meaning. (See ABANDONMENT and ASH)
According to gypsy tradition, the more dust in the dream, the less the annoyance you have to face.
To dream of dust covering you, denotes that you will be slightly injured in business by the failure of others.
For a young woman, this denotes that she will be set aside by her lover for a newer flame.
If you free yourself of the dust by using judicious measures, you will clear up the loss.

Depth Psychology: Dreaming about dust: you are being made aware of experiences from the past. But the dream might also mean that you want to simplify your life, even if it means dealing with discomfort. See Dirt, Filth.
The settlement of time that has past
Almost everything in our world that is organic in nature emits dust as a natural part of its aging or breakdown process. We consider that all things come to dust as part of decay. In our homes, most of the dust we experience actually comes from the human body. In this way, dust in a dream is the consciousness of things past, and if it is building up or obscuring your vision, there may be things in your past that still need to be cleaned up.
Symbolizes man and mortality, Gen. 2:7. Dust can also be symbolic of death, Ps. 30:9
(1) Something covered with dust is something that hasn’t been touched or used for a long time. Is there some shut-awav and forgotten part of your personality that you ought to start using, to compensate for some lopsidedness, or to forestall mutiny on the part of the neglected component of your psyche?
(2) A person covered with dust will probably be you, in which case you need rejuvenating. Perhaps you are too much under the sway of the past and need to dissolve old resentments and turn receptively to the future (or, rather, to the present) and to your inner self, to see what each of them is offering you.
(3) Dust may be a symbol of death or mortality. But it may be that you feel dead, in which case, see (2) above. See also Dead / Death.
