(Harrow; Mattock; Plow; Scoop; Trowel) In a dream, a shovel represents a wife for an unmarried person.
She will keep no secret, though she will spare no expense to save her husband from poverty.
A shovel in a dream also means dispelling distress, overcoming trouble, or satisfying one’s debts.
A shovel in a dream also may represent a trustworthy person one can depend on during hard times, or in times of adversities. Holding a shovel in a dream means receiving benefits and blessings, for a shovel collects dirt as well as valuables.
A shovel in a dream also may represent a woman, profits, or business activities.
