Elopement signifies a union - spiritual or otherwise ? particularly in adversity. In a dream, planning an elopement is trying to create conditions where some sort of integration within aspects of our personalities can take place. Such changes may upset and disturb others in the meantime. Dreaming of eloping, particularly with someone you know, is trying to escape from a situation that could ultimately be painful. We must maintain a balance between the need for emotional and/or material security. Since men and women would in waking life view eloping from different perspectives - for men the 'rescuing' of the maiden and for women being rescued - such dreams can allow us to explore the need to escape from different perspectives.
