Stair

The essential ideas tied to the ladder’s image are: ascension, gradation, and communication between the various levels of verticality. The dreams in which stairs appear are very common and have great symbolic significance. If you climb the stairs it means the need to move up in life, either at a personal or professional level. It suggests that although it takes a lot of effort, you ultimately achieve your reward. It also indicates a desire for spiritual and social elevation, an attempt to reach the light of consciousness and remain there. If, however, you are going down the stairs it reveals a retreat from your goal or your responsibilities. But also a desire to dig into the unconscious. A step that is missing demonstrates psychic fractures. In particular, the spiral staircase indicates tortuous mental processes; the weight of life. The biblical story of Jacob’s ladder symbolizes communication between this world and the spiritual. In psychological terms, it would be the means of contact between your true self and your ego. Any staircase, but especially a marbled one, represents a state of joy and achievement in life. According to the reverse symbolism, to climb it predicts ruin; but if we follow a criterion of analogy it is a sign of happiness. To descend the stairs reveals treasures. And falling down the stairs means loss of fortune, risk, or failure.
