To dream of a recession represents feelings about stagnation, slowed progress, hardship, difficulty getting ahead as fast as you would like. Feeling more stubbornness, rejection, or slow behavior than you would like. Feelings about less opportunities than usual. Feeling that people are less helpful in your life. Feeling dragged into a problem that holds you back. Feelings about losses that discourage optimism or risk taking. Feelings about other people not listening to you because they aren’t being helped. A situation that doesn’t feel fantastic anymore.
