As a symbol that allows us to carry and store items, the basket can hold the key to what you are carrying that may need to be released. Most baskets are woven - symbolizing the intricacies of our insecurities. Examine what is in the basket as a symbol to see what you may be carrying with you. Is this a good or bad thing? The dream is suggesting that you give it consideration. If it is a metal basket, it can personify strong defense mechanisms. A basket woven of natural fibers can have the opposite meaning - coaching you to acknowledge some aspect of yourself that you are not giving enough consideration. Throwing something into a basket can represent success or your desire to hit the mark.
