Dream Interpretation: I Drove a Shopping Cart on a Highway

Other people’s dreams are never interesting…except when they’re about sex. Each week, our dream analyst Lauri Loewenberg tells one lucky reader what their dirty dream means. Got a dream you want Lauri to analyze? Click here to submit it. This week, a reader asks Lauri:

I’m a guy but I had a dream that I was a girl, but it wasn’t really focused on the fact that I was a girl. I was a girl in a shopping cart on a highway and I was driving the shopping cart with a baby in green blankets in a rectangular box.

Lauri Gender-bending dreams are more common than you might think. These dreams aren’t so much about the body of the opposite gender but more about the energy or qualities of that gender. Therefore, you being a girl in this dream may be more about you taking on a more sensitive, caring, or even creative role in your life recently.

The shopping cart suggests that you are in the market for something new in your life, such as a new relationship, a new job, a new attitude, something like that. I believe the baby means that you have obtained this new element in your life and your dreaming mind is showing it to you in the form of a baby so that you will realize this new part of your life requires lots of care and attention, like a baby, so that it can continue to grow and develop into something positive and healthy. And driving down the highway seems to suggest that this new element in your life has the potential to really go places!
