Psychologically, fire often appears in dreams as a symbol of cleansing and purification. We can use the life-giving and generative power to change our lives.

Sometimes fire indicates the need to use our sexual power to good effect.

To dream of being burnt alive may express our fears of a new relationship or phase of life. We may also be conscious that we could suffer for our beliefs.

As a symbol, the fire bucket indicates that we may have a situation around us that is out of control.

The interpretation will depend on whether the bucket is full or empty for it is often only by a display of ‘dampening’ emotion that there can be any progress.
