To dream of leaving is a common theme associated with Vehicles and Places of Transportation, in which you are hurrying or late. The time of departure can have symbolic meaning, portraying the sense of where you stand in relation to the stages of your life. Generally, if you are dreaming about the need to depart, you may be stuck in a transformational stage and 'need to move on.' The other symbolism of the dream will shed light on what part of you is departing, embarking or coming forward. See Time of Day under Placement and Perspective, Arriving and Leaving and Numbers.
