It can symbolize something unwanted that needs to get out of you. It can be a sign that you’re holding onto things that are no good for you.
Excrement is the end process of digestion, and “to digest” means to process. In this sense, excrement can symbolize something you processed emotionally or psychologically.
The word “shit” is so versatile. You can feel like shit. You can be in a world of shit. You can feel like your ideas or efforts are shit. You can get caught in a shit storm.
Shitting in public can mean you publicly humiliate yourself. You “stepped in it” in a very public way. Or you strongly object to something.
Dreams can respond to signals in the body, so dreaming about excrement can be a response to the physical feeling of needing to move your bowels.

I went to use the restroom in my dream and the head of my penis fell into the toilet bowl. What does this mean?
I felt like using the restroom in my dream, as I was about to start peeing standing up, the head of my penis literally fell off and into the water! The was no blood or anything, just a shrived up stump where it had been and the the tip of it in the toilet. For some reason, I wasn't that freaked out at the time and just calmly picked it out of the toilet and called 911. The 911 operator calmly said they had no ambulances at the moment. I walked to the hospital, which was suddenly outside for some reason and I looked at the two ambulances parked outside. Then my alarm went off. What does any of this mean?

Satanic Rest Stop Dream
I was alone traveling on the interstate and I pulled over at a rest area to go pee. Realized the rest area was abandoned and decided to go in and explore. Front door was standing open so I walked inside. All the sudden I walked through basically a portal into an all tile room with blue flames for light. The walls were tile mosaics of Benjamin Franklin $100 bills with a censored little strip of "&$#%!" over his mouth on each one. There was a pentagram with deer antlers surrounding it and something else, maybe an altar, in the center of the room. I got the feeling that the Ben Franklin things on the wall were a symbol of how the devil manipulates money to draw people into evil ways. I got the urge to pull out my phone and take a picture, but my gut feeling said not to. I did it anyways and as soon as I did I heard a maniacal laugh and the door slammed behind me and I woke up.
What do you make of that? Scared the sh*t outa me.

Please help interpret this. Super weird dream where I had someone else’s penis
Back story: The guy in question is someone I was romantically involved with two years ago, but things never got off the ground enough to have ever even slept together. I ran into him recently and we got “closure”. Also important to note I’m a cis woman.
So in the dream…..
I had his penis. Like, it was my penis, but it was his. I don’t know how I knew that, I just did. I was so confused and had no idea what to do. I couldn’t figure out how to pee, so I had my sister and my friend help me. As I pee, it became erect, but I didn’t feel any excitement or pleasure from that. Just wondered why it happened all of a sudden. Somehow, it kept getting more and more erect and started growing. It grew so big that it curled around the room and I was trying to fold it. And the whole time I’m thinking “Holy crap I had no idea his dick was like this! When will it stop? Why is this happening? No wonder he fucks everything that moves!”
I woke up….. and what the fuck??? I’ve never had a dream like that before so there must be something going on with me. I’m inclined to think my subconscious is trying to get me to feel empathetic toward him so I am not bitter. But I really don’t know.

Sex dream and then dream guy pees on me???
So. Last night I had a dream that I was in a dimly lit room by myself fully naked preoccupied with something (painting my toes? Reading a book? I don’t know) while laying down on a bed I don’t recognize but feels like mine. It feels like it’s a little before midnight. Door of the room opens and my head registers it as a musician I adore in my waking life. In the dream we seemed to already know each other and are probably in a FWB situation. He sees me and pretty much moves immediately to missionary (I’m so sorry if this is tmi I just want to put the whole picture out there) and it felt like it didn’t last long but it was sensual and sexy and everything. I remember feeling weird about the sounds and possible faces I was making but I still enjoyed being with him. He finishes and I’m just laying there recouping when he puts down some toilet paper next to my head and literally starts peeing on me. I freeze up in a what the fuck fashion and he continues until I slowly sit up and walk to the bathroom wiping my mouth and eyes. I am stunned but am trying to remain even keeled and still attractive and I tell him he has to warn me when he wants to do that and he is surprised that I was not into it and tells me he’ll work me into being more kinky... in my waking life I broke up with my boyfriend 2 days ago and today my car broke down on the high way abruptly in a VERY dangerous spot and it had to get towed... What stands out to you guys? What do you think?

Recurring childhood dream came true over a decade later. Dad got cancer.
When I was 5/6 (?) I had a reoccurring dream for maybe a week that my father would pee blood, then I would sit on this black stone floor in front of a fireplace, and my dad would walk out of the bathroom and look at me with a face like he was trying to warn me.
When I’m 16, dad’s diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer (47 years old, super young for prostate cancer). He pee blood. We move to a new house with the same black fireplace from my dream, where I would sit nearly every night.
He died at 53, and I can’t stop thinking that he somehow his spirit went back in time was trying to warn me in this dream. Because what 5 year old had the capacity to repeatedly dream of their dad urinating blood?
