As a place where cars are parked, the parking lot can symbolize a transition in your career as you explore new ways of moving forward. In a sense, your forward movement is on hold. Cars represent motivation and how you are moving forward. When the car is parked, it is either because you are taking time to re-evaluate where you are going or are unaware of issues that are undermining your ability to go forward. Looking for your car in a parking garage often occurs when you are exploring a new direction. A collision in a parking lot can occur when two areas of your life are out of balance. Being in the parking garage at night can be symbolic of not clearly understanding your motivation. If the dream focuses on a certain color, you might understand the message and gain possible direction by exploring the color of the car. See Garage and Vehicles and Places of Transportation.
