To see ashes in your dream, signifies bitter changes and disruptions. Ashes may represent a failed relationship or a ruinous business enterprise. You may be feeling that the good times are over and nothing of value is left in your life. Alternatively, you may be dwelling too much on the past. You need to learn to let go. In particular, to see or clean ashes in a fireplace or stove, indicates that you are unsatisfied with aspects of your life. You may be in a rut and feel trapped by your daily routine.
