If you dream that you were washing dirty dishes then you might be moving on with the next phase of your life. You are finished up with someone or something and getting rid of old beliefs.
With that said, washing dishes is a something you might do on a daily basis so it’s possible you feel you are in a rut of doing the same things day in, day out. Is it time you made a conscious effort to change?
Dirty dishes are a sign of dissatisfaction- perhaps you are not content with your way of living or maybe you envisage an unpromising outlook in your future. It’s possible you have overlooked some problem in your life and as a result, the time that’s passed has made things worse.
Clean dishes on the other hand, might indicate that you are proud of how you live.
The dream could be a pun for the things you are ‘dishing out’ to others- advice, opinions -whatever this may be.
It could also be pun for someone you find ‘dishy’ in your waking hours if you are attracted to someone new. It is time you make a move?
Unclean dishes that are stacked high might represent the pile of work you still have to do and are dreading it because it’s dirty work.
If there were shelves piled high with clean dishes, then perhaps you are trying to make the best out of a situation or trying to give the right impression to someone.
If the dishes were broken, this could predict a period of financial difficulty or feelings of inadequacy when you compare yourself to others.
Washing dishes in someone else’s house could mean that you feel indebted to that person or you lack power over your own life.
