CLOCK

(see Bells, Hourglass, Numbers, Time)

Standing still: Impatience for some event soon to come, or feeling spiritually, emotionally, or mentally paralyzed.

Punching a time clock: The danger of becoming a slave to schedules and the agendas of other people.

Is the clock digital, electric, a wristwatch, wind-up, a cuckoo clock, or perhaps even a sundial? Each of these has different associations. Digital clocks show that you are living in the present. Electric clocks and wind-up versions are more antiquated, revealing a stronger focus on times past.

The cuckoo clock expresses

CLOCK

As a machine, it is linked with ideas of perpetual motion, automatism, mechanism, etc. The clock can represent human destiny, as it is the measurement of your time. Its sound, further, reminds one of the beating of the heart, which identifies it with the emotional side of your personality. It could manifest that your life is governed by artificial routine that has created organized society. In this sense, you should live more casually and think less about time and dates.

If you see a clock that is behind, it is a sign that you have the tendency to leave issues hanging.

If it is fast, it means that you suffer stress and it would be best to relax some.

If the clock shows the exact time, it indicates that you are losing time and that the moment to decide to act has already come; although it could also be a warning to be more punctual.

If it shows that there is one minute to midnight, it denotes your desire to advance a situation that affects you.

If it is stopped, it manifests the status of your emotions.

Dreaming of various clocks with different times is synonymous with disorder and confusion. Lastly, dreaming of a chronometer evidences that you do not have your emotions under control. (See HANDS (of a clock) and TIME)

The regular movement of the clock indicates that everything is going well. Losing it in dreams indicates changes in your life or the possibility of starting a new stage of growth. Listening to the ticks of the clock presages the arrival of bad news.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

CLOCK 

Time element. Allotted time.Check conditions surrounding the clock and the appearance of the clock.It is talking to you about time, a cycle, age or duration of something. Carl Jung called all circular images a “mandala.” It is one of the most important dream symbols which represent the psychic center of personality.

It is symbolic of wholeness, completeness, and unity of the self.

The clock is a mandala that revolves and it may represent immortality. On the lighter side, when you are dreaming about a clock, time is an obvious issue. You may be currently experiencing anxiety in regard to a time-sensitive situation.

For example, people worry about their “biological clock” running out, or they are concerned about not being “on top of things.” In general, however, this dream may be a reminder that you need to speed up your actions and that time is an important factor. Old dream interpretations say that if you hear a clock strike, (or alarm go off), positive things will happen to you, and if you are winding a clock, you will fall in love!

TOWER

Something we have built or created in our life. As such it can be an outer achievement or erection of inner atti­tudes such as defensiveness, isolation, insularity, or an at­tempt to reach the heights of awareness or recognition. Also male sexuality and drive which may not be expressed satisfac­torily, and thus be the source of aggression towards females and society. This also has the elements of insularity and de­fence. Occasionally heightened awareness, as in the light­house dream of Priestley in the entry religion and dreams.

Example: ‘The Devil was trying to force me to make love to a girl. I wanted to leap off the tower and fly away, but it was high, and I was frightened I would fall’ (Quentin C). Quentin is 15 and facing his emerging drive of love and sex.

The woman in the tower is here his idealised relationship with the opposite sex. Actual intimacy is threatening and he wants to ‘fly’ from it but feels this would be failure.

The Devil is his own life pushing to grow, but felt as threatening. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

(Or any similar image such as a lighthouse, obelisk, steeple etc.) The image of a tower represents the personality (the outside walls) and the soul within (the inner space).

TOWER

To dream of being alone in a tower is a sign that the dreamer is NOT in touch with certain circumstances or issues in his life, and needs to understand them thoroughly before taking any action - as in the metaphor, “ivory tower.”

To see a tower against the sky implies true love and friendship either coming soon or already present in the dreamer’s life.

To see a tower crumbling and falling implies upset and perhaps even disaster ahead, like The Tower card in the Tarot deck.

TOWER

Towers symbolize ascending. In the Middle Ages, towers and bell towers could serve as watchtowers, but they had a meaning of a staircase between earth and heaven (in those times, material height was associated with spiritual height). On the other hand, towers also symbolize isolation from the world in which you live, so to speak, the defense from external aggressions. A solid tower signifies that you are confronting the challenges that are thrown at you in life perfectly; a half-demolished tower, in contrast, represents the opposite.

TOWER

According to Freud, a tower is a phallic symbol, signifying in its sturdiness the sexual self-confidence of a male dreamer. In dreams, towers represent psychological constructions you may have built in your life, ranging from an attitude to an entire way of life. For example, a tower may be a defensive erection of inner attitudes, suggesting an imprisonment by your own anxieties or a desire to shut yourself away from the world; alternatively, it may be an attempt to reach the heights of awareness or recognition.

If you are standing at the top of the tower in your dream, observe how you feel as you gaze down at the activity below. Were you relieved to be far removed from other people or did you feel imprisoned? Towers in dreams can also suggest an emotionally impregnable figure in the dreamer’s life, for example an authoritarian father, or male authority in general. There may also be a reference to a ‘tower of strength’, or a person on whom you can rely for support and comfort.

If your tower has no door, you are not in touch with your inner self.

If there are no windows, you can’t see all the good things about yourself.

An ivory tower suggests innocence, but it can also suggest arrogance, intellectual aloofness and the loneliness such an attitude can bring. A square tower suggests a pragmatic, practical approach, and a round tower suggests spiritual harmony.

If the tower is round on top of a square building, this suggests harmony in mind, body and spirit. How you get to the tower in your dream is important in your dream.

If your steps are difficult to climb, this suggests you are a private person.

If the door is jammed, you are not ready to understand yourself.

If the door is bolted, you must make the effort to go in. Once inside the tower, you can use other explanations in this encyclopedia to interpret what you encounter.... The Element Encyclopedia

TOWERING ABOVE THE REST

Freudian dream interpreters relate towering structures in dreams to phallic symbols, and therefore to macho tendencies, on account of their thrusting shape. So if you dreamed you were living in a luxury penthouse thousands of feet above the city or that your office occupied the top floor, could your dream have highlighted your ambitions? Do you secretly long to rise above everyone else financially, professionally and socially? Dreaming of a spire may indicate pride and ambition or yearning to attain spiritual heights, and an obelisk in a dream may be a phallic symbol. A chimney in a dream may be another phallic symbol especially if it was a tall factory chimney. In both the waking and the dream world, skyscrapers are symbols of elevated social and professional status and the ‘greed is good creed’, so if you dreamed of them, perhaps your unconscious was highlighting your waking ambition.

The most prominent and famous landmark in Paris, the city of romance, revolution and passion, is the Eiffel Tower.

If it appears in your dream, it presents a powerful erotic symbolism, as it is a strong image of thrusting sexuality. The clock tower, also known as Big Ben, which sits alongside London’s Houses of Parliament, may be a symbol of an encounter with destiny or some life-changing event. Ticking clocks often represent the passage of life (see TIME) and the clock tower combines this with the phallic form to form an image of courage and emotional development. Evoking great and solemn occasions, the chimes of Big Ben, or any clock in a church tower, relate to important life changes, such as marriage, the birth of a child or moving house, or important shifts in attitude, such as forgiveness, resolve and determination....

WATCH / CLOCK

If a timepiece appeared in your dream, it is important to remember how you felt during and after the dream as it will suggest the way in which you allocate time in your life. Were the hands moving slowly or quickly? Was the timepiece telling you to speed up or slow down? The type of clock or watch is also important. Was it old-fashioned or modern? Dreams of clocks or watches can also suggest that you rely too heavily on clock time instead of enjoying and experiencing life as it happens.

If your dreaming mind zoomed in on a watch or clock, this could also be a reminder to make the most of your time and not to waste it.

If you keep checking a clock or a watch in your dream, this suggests anxiety and worry about some future event.

If you don’t feel this to be the case, your unconscious may have conjured this panic-stricken theme to urge you to prepare better for a future event or opportunity that may soon present itself in waking life. For example, have you done enough study to pass your driving theory test? Alternatively, your dream may have indicated frustration and regret at your inability in the past to make the most of an opportunity when it was presented to you.

If you dreamed that a watch or clock slowed down, this could reflect your feeling that events are moving slowly in your waking life or that time is dragging. Alternatively, the symbol of a watch may indicate your ticking heart, so if the clock stops or slows down, this may suggest either an emotional standstill or problems with your cardiovascular system. According to ancient dream-lore and superstition, when a clock stops, somebody will die but your dream will almost certainly have a different meaning. In the symbolic language of dreams, clocks and watches reflect your emotional state and a stopped clock or a clock that is broken may indicate emotional blockages or standstills, and a clock whose hands race out of control may indicate feelings run amok.

If you dreamed of a stopwatch, this highlights your sense of feeling pressured or working against the clock.

If you are a woman dreaming of ticking clocks, such a dream may indicate your biological clock. Dreams that focus on timepieces may also have been measuring the passage of your lifespan and the ticking clock could simply be a reminder that the seconds of your life are ticking away and there is still much for you to do.
