To dream that you are at a crossroads, symbolize an important decision that you need to make. Contemplating a waking life choice. You have come to a point in your life where you have several options that you need to weigh. Each option will lead you to a different destination or goal. Confronting the prospect of having to change your life. The ending of relationships where both people must choose to move on with their lives.
Negatively, a crossroads in a dream may reflect inaction or difficulty making an important choice. Difficulty moving ahead. "Standing still" in life. It may also a fear of making the wrong choice.
Alternatively, the crossroads suggest of a change in direction in your life.
Example: A man dreamed of seeing a path leading to a crossroads with alligators at it. In waking life his workplace had announced job cuts there were to be made. The crossroads in this case may have reflected the feelings about himself and the people at his workplace facing the inevitability of having to confront the prospect of deciding what to do with the rest of their careers.
Example 2: A young man dreamed of coming to a crossroads. In waking life he had broken up with his girlfriend. The crossroads in this case may have the choice for both people to go separate ways in life.
