If you dreamed of carrying a bucket with something in it- it’s possible you feel burdened by a person or situation in your waking hours.

Pay attention to what was in the bucket as this can add greater significance to the dream.

Was there water in the bucket? Clear water is a positive sign of good luck and fortune, however muddy water is an indication of future grief and sorrow.

It might represent what you are putting into something- a relationship, your career or a project for instance. You want to carry something through into its next phase so you are putting in a lot of effort to get to the finish line.

If the bucket was empty, perhaps you haven’t been investing much energy into something lately. The dream could be urging you to act immediately as what you do now will have a significant impact on your future. It's possible you aren’t doing enough, and you need to prepare more for an event.

It’s likley you don’t care enough about your future and you need to start planning for it.

An empty bucket can also represent feelings of lacking. Have you experienced failures and disappointments lately? What do you feel you are missing out on?

Perhaps you feel empty right now. If this sounds like you- think carefully about what you can do to fill your life with the things you love again.

On the flipside, a full bucket could mean that you feel happy and successful with your lot at present- so enjoy every minute and don't take anything for granted.

A bucket with a hole inside could mean that you are preoccupied with something small rather than focusing on the bigger picture. Try to gain some perspective here. 

Another view surrounding a bucket with a hole in it is that you are slowly being drained of energy. Is someone or something demanding too much fo you? Perhaps you feel you have nothing left to give.

The dream could be telling you to look at your bucket list- or make one if you haven’t already and start ticking things off. It might be time to start doing the things you’ve always wanted to.

Also consider what was with the bucket- if there was a spade alongside, it might be time to book a holiday or roll up your sleeves and start doing some 'digging'.
