Spiritually, in any culture, the New Year with its attendant celebrations can signify enlightenment or new knowledge becoming available. We are no longer in the depths of darkness. Psychologically, when there is a need for renewal or a new growth in understanding, we need to acknowledge the effort we must make. This is often symbolized as a New Year, a new beginning. To dream of the New Year is to recognize the need for a fresh start. It may also signify the measurement of time in a way that is acceptable, or a time when something can happen.
