A tap is a means of controlling the flow of Spiritual energy. As visualization before sleep it can be a way of controlling imagery in dreams. Water is considered to be a symbol of emotion, so a tap is representative of our ability to use or misuse emotion in some way. To be able to turn emotion on and off at will is indicative of great self-control. A dripping tap would indicate a difficulty in controlling emotions. The tap is an image of being able to make available universal resources. To dream of not being able to turn a tap either on or off highlights our ability or inability to control those things we consider to be rightfully ours. To be tapping something suggests that we are trying to free up our energies. Tap dancing highlights a rhythmic approach to life.
