Dreaming of a tombstone can be a very ominous experience, but the tombstone alone should not be the only symbol considered when trying to understand its meaning.

In most cases dreaming of a tombstone does not signify an actual death, but may symbolize an ending in your life. It’s a little bit like the Tarot card ‘the Death’ in that respect.

So if you dream of this symbol, work on recalling as many details in the dream as you can.

Notice who is at the tombstone. If it is someone you know then this person may play a significant role in the great changes to come.
