The city symbolizes the human psyche. Depending on how it is represented in the dream it indicates how things are in your mind. If the city offers a beautiful spectacle it means that harmony reigns inside you. In case it is noisy and polluted, it is a clear indication that your ideas are altered by the internal chaos you are experiencing. On the other hand, the city can represent everything around you, including family and friends. If you feel alone as you enter it in the dream, you can feel that way with your social role in reality. If you dream that it is fortified with walls it will express your need for self-defense against outside threats; and a ruined city warns against neglected relationships.Finally, to get lost in the city shows your own existential loss. Mythological cities usually have eight gates, one of which is sealed. Each door represents a change in your life; the eighth is the end of the trip, in other words, death.
