Psychologically we often need space to make the best use of opportunities. We should be capable of going beyond our own concepts of limitation and restriction. As the exploration of space takes us beyond our own little world, we become more conscious of the need for best use of resources.
There comes a time when, if we wish to maximize our potential, we must find a space of our own. Paying rent allows us to be independent within someone else’s space.

If you dream about a spaceship, you are ready to explore your spriritual side. Also see “Alien.” For “Space” in general, see “Outer Space.”
On a purely mundane level the ziggurat symbolizes a sacred secure space and the ability to access that space within ourselves.
In dreams, when we are aware of the space we occupy we are in touch with our own potential. We may be aware that our personal space is being, or has been, penetrated. To be ‘spaced out’ is to have widened our personal boundaries artificially through the use of stimuli.

Interestingly, rushes or reeds are an ancient symbol of time. In both spiritual work and dreams, time and space are interchangeable. Thus, if we use our space successfully then we also use time properly. If we are rushing we do not see the best of our world.
