Metaphorically, the inability to fit in due to social awkwardness (e.g., being “square”).

Trying to adapt to an impossible situation, like putting a square peg in a round bole.

Boundaries. Like the outlines in a coloring book, the lines of a square may contain something, or keep something out. Look to the rest of the dream for more information to see if this fits.

For example, if a house sits amid a high square fence, this probably shows that you’re very private and keep a strong wall between vourself and others.

If a square frame, highlighting a perspective.

Squares are very stable and well ordered, and they indicate things that are down to earth, the physical reality and the materialization of ideas and plans. Leonardo da Vinci’s depiction of a man in a circle in a square represents the complete balance of the various aspects of human nature. Squares also suggest the four directions on a compass. It could be that you seek stability and order in your life, and aren’t quite sure how to achieve these. Look at how the square is used in your dream for a hint as to which direction to take. Squares represent the material world with its stability but also its limits and restrictions. Squares are dreamt about most often by those trying to bring order into their lives.

If you dreamed of a square—be it a square room, a city square, a television screen, a book or a paving stone—the reference may be to your own stable, dependable personality. On the other hand, are you trying to find a solution to a problem that vexes you? Squares can also represent feelings of restriction or the boring, tedious, day-to-day grind of life, so in dreams they could be reflecting stagnation, inhibition, and your need for freedom and excitement.

If you dreamed of a cube, this is a symbol of wisdom, truth and perfection as it gives depth and stability to a square. The cube may also stand for a house, and is therefore a symbol of the self.

If you or another person are within a cube in your dream, this represents you.

If the cube is in the form of a die, it suggests life’s uncertainties.

My Dream Interpretation | myjellybean

A symbol of wholeness. You are on the path of individuation and self-awareness. You are grounded and emotionally balanced.
