To dream that you are in an attic, denotes that you are entertaining hopes which will fail of materialization.
Represents hidden memories or repressed thoughts that are being revealed.
An attic also symbolizes your mind, spirituality, and your connection to the higher self.
Any part of a house usually represents a part of yourself (dreamer = house).
The attic is the last thing built.
Some believe that the attic symbolizes the higher self, or best self (i.e. the self that is in contact with the eternal).
Others think that the attic symbolizes the sum total of your life’s work or it may predict how well you will do in old age. If the attic is full of “neat” stuff, it may imply that you are accomplishing wonderful things and are living up to your potential in this lifetime.
The attic, being an upper room, shows you have lofty aspirations that you will have much difficulty with, but will win out to your goals after an extended period of time. If the attic is well appointed, and brightly lit, then you will have luck with either love or matrimony.
The attic can also represent the mind, and if the attic is chaotic this will be a sign telling you to organize your thoughts for better living.
