In some metaphysical traditions, this number represents physical conditions, so seeing it frequently in dreams may be a signal to take better care of yourself or get a checkup.
Four denotes stability, physical limitations, inadaptability, hard labor and earthly things, as in the four corners of the earth. It also stands for materialistic matters, practicality, responsibility and the importance of getting things done. It is thought to encompass the essence of the material world—the four points of the compass, the four seasons, the four elements, the four members of the nuclear family; father, mother, son and daughter—and therefore also implies strength, stability, order, harmony and wholeness. For Jungians, four can represent personal growth, as it represents Jung’s ‘quaternity’ of thoughts (conscious and unconscious), feelings, senses and intuitions. It is the number of the Emperor in the Tarot deck, a symbol of masculine strength and resolve—and its associated shape is the square.
Dreams of the number four represent physicality and the mundane world. Perhaps you are striving for perfect balance, stability, symmetry and strength. Four also represents your home and your connection with the four directions. See North, South, East and West; and the four elements, see Earth, Fire, Water and Air.

For some Native Americans four is a holy number, the number for everything beautiful (for instance, in some traditions a prayer must be spoken four times). In alchemy the process of transformation happens in four stages. According to legend, the river in paradise separates into four rivers.
According to Jung, four always points out that we are on the way to becoming what we really are. Four symbolizes completeness and totality: the four temperaments and, in Christianity, the four directions of the Cross and Christ surrounded by four apostles.
Four in a dream is usually a positive symbol. There are Four earth elements, Four seasons, and Four psychological functions in the human system.
The Four is where the change in the human personality takes place.
The number Four belongs to Uranus. Four-people want to revolutionize the world: they are scientists, clerics, social reformers, nonconformists, and artists. They brood, attack problems, and have a quick wit. Four analyv.es and organizes. It stands against the carefree mentality of the Three—having received the Divine one. Four-people have the clarity needed to understand the center, the “I,” and what holds life together. But a Four-person can also suffocate in this orderliness. Four-people have staying- power and willpower, as well as a tendency to be melancholy.
Generally speaking, the Four represents immense inner strength, energy, vitality, and a great love for and connection with nature. You are asked to either support and advance these qualities, or you need them in greater measure in order to fulfill your life’s work. See Uranus.
Four-people have birthdays on the 4th, 13th, 22nd (a master number), or 31st of the month.

When you add a fourth point to a triangle, you end up with a square. Four is the number of structure. Once the creative impulse has been satisfied, it is time for solidification, which can be accomplished by the power of four.
A wonderful weight-bearing shape, a square is what allows for building the foundation on which the creative energies of three can be supported. Four connects to the establishment of institutions, order, rules, and regulations. While a number of great strength, it can engender a sense of limitation and the concept of restraint.
The number four represents structure and materialization. Like the four directions, it binds the physical world with the spiritual dimensions.
The number four may signify earth- bound activity or grounded action. It may point to a need for structure in your life.

Idioms: four square; on all fours; four letter word. Four or more people: feelings about meeting group decisions and feelings, someone’s opinion or will backed by others; supportive feelings.
(see also Mandalas)
Four is an ancient symbol of completeness; wholeness. (The four comers of the earth, the four cardinal points, the four winds all, in primitive traditions, represent the whole of reality. So does a four-sided figure. The cross, too, extending in all four directions, is an ancient - pre-Christian - symbol of totality. Such figures, along with a four- petalled flower or four-lobed leaf, are mandalas, representing wholeness.)
According to Jung, consciousness has four functions: thinking, intuition, feeling and sensation. Usually, however, at least one of these and possibly three are undeveloped and are therefore still totally or partially unconscious. Personal fullness can be achieved only by lifting these functions out of unconsciousness and integrating them into consciousness.
Multiples of four - eight, sixteen and so on - may have the same symbolic meaning as four. To see such a symbol in your dream does not mean you have achieved personal wholeness; rather, your dream may be pointing out, by contrast, your lack of wholeness.
