When you dream about cleaning, it is generally about cleansing your life of some negativity or overcoming an obstacle.

You have increased confidence and are looking to improve yourself.

If there was someone with you in the dream, perhaps this person has created a barrier or is the negative influence in your life. You may have decided to dial back your relationship with this person. Perhaps the dream is giving you a nudge in this direction if you hadn’t thought of it already.

Maybe you are trying to tackle something together as a team in your waking hours and it's not going well because the negativity is halting your progress. Do you need to work alone or with someone else?

You could also be moving into a new phase of your life on your own or with a partner or family. This might require you to get out of your old habits and find ways to improve things for you or your unfamiliar situation.

If you were focusing your cleaning on a specific object, this could be a representation of a part of yourself that isn't working as well as you would like it to either mentally or physically. It can also mean that you fear you are stuck in a rut or in a situation and can't escape it.

You may be seeking a fresh approach to a situation in your waking life that you know will get messy but you're willing to go through the rough with the smooth to reach your goal.

Perhaps you feel your judgement has been clouded and the act of cleaning is you trying to see the truth and clear your mind.

The dream could be a pun for ‘coming clean’- do you need to admit your wrongdoing to someone or finally tell them the truth?

Cleaning out your desk is linked to feelings of freedom from whatever has been troubling you recently.

If the pasta was in a red sauce- it might be worth looking at increasing the passion in your relationship if you are struggling romantically with your partner at present. Another interpretation is that you are enjoying something that is difficult in your waking life. Whatever it is, may not be easy but it is worth the effort you’re putting in. Pasta can also represent the feeling of longevity, nourishment and abundance so you may feel that you’re in a comfortable position right now that you don’t see coming to an end any time soon. Pasta is a food that gives you energy, so if you were cooking pasta in your dream, then you may feel depleted of your energy reserves. Perhaps you feel you have nothing left to give because you are worn out. You may need to invest some time in you and get to a place where you feel you have the get up and go to do things again...
