Barns are mainly found on farms and agricultural areas. They offer storage space, for example for work equipment, but also for the harvested harvests. Once the hard work of the harvest was done, there used to be a harvest festival to thank God for his gifts.
When we dream of seeing a barn, threshing floor or hayloft, the main thing to consider is whether or not there are goods in it.
Sometimes the barn that appears to us in our dreams is also dilapidated and run down. Such circumstances are crucial for the interpretation of the barn as a dream symbol. Because just like in reality, a full barn in a dream is a positive sign for one’s own future, while an empty and dilapidated one is a bad omen.

The same applies if the storage in the dream is filled with grain, stalks and similar goods, also called a silo.

An old barn that can still be used shows in the dream world that the dreamer’s success is rather low. The symbol can refer to the professional or private situation of the person concerned. For example, a job change can help to improve your financial situation, or alternatively, recognition or integration into the workforce. The lack of success doesn’t have to be about money.
