We may have come to a fork - a divergence - on our spiritual path and development and need guidance as to which direction to take. A fork, particularly a three-pronged one, is often considered to be the symbol of the Devil and, therefore, can symbolize evil and trickery. Psychologically the fork can signify the same as a barb or a goad - something that is driving us, often to our own detriment. In dreams, a fork denotes duality and indecision. A garden fork suggests hard work coupled with responsibility, whereas a kitchen fork signifies perhaps nurturing and management of assets.
