Baskets traditionally represent the seasons. A full one, for instance, is full fruition and abundance, a time of harvesting. As a container, a basket can also represent the feminine closing or receptive principle. To be attempting to fill a basket can mean that we are trying to increase our talents and abilities. Somehow we feel we do not have ?enough?. If the basket is full of bread it can represent sharing ? as in a sacramental meal. If the contents are spilt, it signifies the possible failure of a venture or sometimes the premature ending of a project. Because of its connection with the feminine, in a man?s dream a basket can suggest domesticity or his caring nature. In a woman?s dream, if she finds the basket heavy, she may be finding her responsibilities a burden.
