What are possible meanings for dreams of barns?
Dream symbolism is based primarily on use and function, so a barn can symbolize something related to its use, storing things such as animals, food, supplies, and tools, while in dreams barns symbolize storing less-tangible things. For example, inheritances and home equity are forms of stored wealth. Hope is a form of stored energy.
Pay attention to the condition of the barn. If it’s in good shape or full, it can symbolize feeling good about future prospects, or having plenty of personal resources. A run-down or empty barn can show lack of preparation—or future prospects.
Another way of thinking about the symbolism of a barn is that it’s where something is out of the way, separate from the main part of your life or personality. For example, a secret passion or interest, or a second career or family. This use of the symbolism will often show as the barn near your home, a way of saying “closely related.” See: Garages
Back in the days when family farms were common, barns were places where young people would go to be out of sight of parents and authority figures. They could goof off, smoke cigarettes, make out. Those associations are less common these days but can still be used to create symbolism for doing something you want to keep hidden.
A barn can symbolize a situation that lacks structure or authority, or is out of control, because when the farmer isn’t around, the animals run the barn.
It can symbolize a dirty mouth or dirty mind. See: Toilets
If it’s a spooky place in a dream, it can be a way of saying, “Don’t go there.” You avoid something. See: Hiding
What are your impressions and personal experiences with barns? Those associations can be the basis of your dream symbolism.

I dreamt that I was chased by and fought a lion
Hi this is my first time posting or looking at this reddit, I'm a 19m and I almost never remember my dream after I wake up, but the one i had last night keeps replaying hour after I've been awake.
Basically I was hiding in a barn protecting kids from something (I wasn't aware of the lion yet). Some of the kids where my cousins but I didn't know most of the kids. I decided I needed to leave the barn and get a gun to protect the group better. So I got on a bike and rode out.
On my ride I saw body parts strewn about, and heard screams in the distance, but the odd thing to me was that I was in the great plains and it was beautiful dispite all the agony. I got to the spot I assume the gun was supposed to be, couldn't find it so I turned back to the barn.
As I approached one of the older kids cracked open the barn door for me, but I felt a presence behind me. I looked back and there was a huge lion with a matted mane chasing me. I yelled to close and lock the door. The lion rushed pass me hit the door with the hope it would open for him. It did not. The lion turned to me with a look of anger in his eye.
The lion ran up to me swatted me off the bike. I got up, and it swatted me down again. Every time I tried to get up it swatted me, and everytime it tried to bite I grabbed its mane and pushed it off course for me. We where in stale mate for what felt like for ever. I woke up when the lion pinned me and bit into my gut.
Some things I feel are important to mention: I wasn't scared the whole dream I just felt angry and annoyed, this stuck out to me because I'm a very fearful person and all the fear came washing up to me when I woke up. Also I dont know why there was a barn, I've never lived on a farm.
So if you could please help make sense of this, I'm very scared. I've never dreamed this vividly nor have I remembered it so well. Any help would be much appreciated

Dreamt I did something horrible
I was at some kind of ranch with an old, decrepit barn. The barn had a basement and in the basement there was a slab of something that burned *really* hot. There was a man in the dream that I hated. I somehow got him covered in tar and he was stuck to the hot slab. He was going to slowly burn and melt. Another man and myself were standing looking at the guy covered in tar sitting stuck. The man asked me if I wanted to rescue the guy and I said “no, but let’s leave so we don’t have to listen to him scream”. And we left.

I had a dream where my parents were asleep and I was awake all night being tortured.
This nightmare started yesterday and I don't know what I feel like right now.. I will explain it in a short bit but we have to talk about my living condition right now. I used to live in a barn where all the animals slept, it was the only place that was warm enough to go to bed in. I met 37-39 different animals until later I attempted suicide before being sent to the phychic ward for 2 years. My family while I was away finally got a job working at a grocery store and we made it inside an apartment nearby the barn. I didn't care much about it but at the same time, I had an emotional attachment to the place and visited it frequently. Now with the dream..
The dream took place in my living room and it was dark. I remembered me on my phone as 5 months earlier I just saved up enough money to buy one. I am 18 and about to go to college but I had to have a phone anyway. Me being lousy, I laid on the couch and sank in until someone broke into the front door. I looked in fear but didn't try to go anywhere. It was a sheep with a 14 inch dick hanging out. There was also geese, ducks, cows, pigs, and tons of random animals I cant describe because they're distorted.
I ran and the animals catched up to me. We fought until I was overpowered and was forced to lay on my belly. They slowly went down and begin penetrating my vagina. I yelled for help but it was no use. The sheep just kept going further and further in and I felt all the pain. 14 seconds in, I looked back and saw it making a jojo-like face at me but the dick was still slowly going in. I couldn't move at all and I saw other animals ripping out their dicks as well. A horny raccoon went to the opportunity and deep-throated me heavily. The sheep broke through my vagina aswell and I felt it go through the skin into my clit. A third animal, some sort of goose jumped on me and began thrusting my back with his soft feathers and worm-like dick spraying all around the back of me.
The dream lasted for what felt like years. The only reason I woke up was because I died from my injuries. Truly the worst dream but sexiest one at best. I wished it could of been better as I have always liked more smaller creatures do it harder on me. This dream was just weird lol. It reminds me back in my past where I was clench the penises of the critters and pretty animals and force them to in-breed others. I get these once every few days and tbh, it makes all the hard feelings go away.

Dream feels like a weird memory and is centered around baby deer and witchcraft????
(For context in this dream It seems like I was a teenage girl living a strict community where everyone hates the moon because they associate with witchcraft)
So the dream started out with me crouched outside of a barn-like building with two baby does in a basket. One was tagged with pink and the other was tagged with blue. I remember seeing their names, both of which started with ‘F,’ but in my head I couldn’t read the names. But anyways I called the blue-tagged doe, Fauna.
I’m pretty sure nobody liked Fauna, or maybe they didn’t like my relationship with the does because everyone seemed to be frustrated with me throughout the dream, especially this one large woman with a white bonnet. I was always scared of getting on her bad side.
So it skips to night and I’m with another teenage girl, who is also wearing a white bonnet and a long light brown dress. We’re both tying up cream-colored sheets and both of us are very cautious about it.
The next day (I’m assuming) I am outside playing with the does. We’re on a stretch of land with a decline, which lead to a thick forrest at the bottom. Anyways, the blue-tagged doe, Fauna, goes missing and i and someone else go looking for her.
Ok so here’s the weird part: we come out onto the other side of the woods and there’s a modern house there, and in the yard there are children having a birthday party....
I see a lady with curly light red hair, glasses, and a biker jacket holding the doe. She sees us and comes up to us. She says that something got the doe and I can see a gash in it’s leg. She assumes we know how to stitch it up, but then I explain to her that I don’t know how. She sighs and tells us to come back in an hour. As we’re leaving I look through one of the windows and notice a bunch of bones (so maybe she was a taxidermist idk😂).
So I’m pretty sure we got the deer back and then the dream takes a really weird turn.
It’s dusk and I’m staring into the forest and a song starts to play. I can’t remember the lyrics but a woman starts singing in a solemn and haunting voice about how the “moon and mar are connected,” or something like that. It ended with me thinking to myself, “but then why is this our song if we hate the moon?”
It kind of makes me think people in the dream might of suspected me of being a witch all along or something. Which would explain why everyone was mad at me, why the girl putting sheets up with me was cautious, and why I felt alone but also guilty the whole time. Maybe they believe Fauna was my familiar or something, and that’s why they didn’t seem to like her.
Anyone else have an interpretation on this dream? Like maybe it could be a past life, or maybe it’s something my head made up to tell me something😅
