Janitor – A janitor is a dream symbol of cleaning up the messes in your past and moving on in your life. You may not realize the continued effects of past experiences, mistakes or trauma, but these things often affect you for years afterwards. If you dream about being a janitor, this is an indication that you need to address a certain area of your past and come to terms with it. This is especially true if you dream about cleaning up an old house, workplace, school, or other important location in your past. Notice if a particular memory is especially connected to that place. Dreaming about someone else being a janitor may indicate that you wish someone else could take on this burden for you, or it may signify the need to resolve past issues with that person.
