Rake – Dreaming of a rake is an indication of needing to clean up some part of your life. Falling leaves are an indication of decay and the passing away of old things to make way for new. Raking up the fallen leaves in your yard is therefore a dream symbol of clearing away the old to make way for new things. On the other hand, it may also symbolize an unwillingness to deal with the fact that old things must pass away. If you are trying to hold on to something in your past (symbolized by the green grass of summer in your lawn), you must accept that nothing in life is truly permanent and try to accept the passing away of things with inner peace.
