A gate can be an entry point for angels and demons, Isa. 28:6, Gen. 28:17.
If you find yourself at a gate in a dream it can also symbolize a position of council, Gen. 19:1. Closing a gate in a dream is symbolic of shutting someone or something out of a person’s life, Mal. 1:10
A threshold, like that between conscious self awareness and our total experience. Such a gate needs to open and close—open to allow selected memory, close to prevent massive flooding of impressions.
The gate can also portray the passage from one period of life, or level of maturity, to another. Therefore, to stand before adolescence, parenthood, death, might be shown as facing a gate in a dream. Also similar to door—entrance to something different, or to someone else’s life, as in marriage. See door under house, buildings; example in dog under animals.
Gates have associations similar to doors and archways with some minor variations.
For example, if the gate has a keeper, this person may symbolize your Higher Self or a guardian figure (see Angel) waiting to help you traverse this obstacle.
Gates have strong correlations with fertility and productivity, being that the womb is sometimes referred to as the gate of all life.”
The barrier between worlds, in this case the conscious and subconscious. Many mythologies speak of the gate that leads to paradise in the afterlife. Once the spirit passes this juncture, there can be no return to mortality.
Dreams of a gate represent an opportunity for an opening in your life. Or a gate could represent a barrier that stands between one realm and another and/or what separates or protects you from a great challenge or a great blessing. Consider the feeling tone of this dream. See Boundary and Door.
The gate in dreams is a potent image of the transition between the physical and spiritual realms, not just in the sense of death, but also as we learn more about spirituality. It is used as a ‘gateway’ for communication, and as a visualization before sleep can help us to access much information. It will sometimes signify the half-aware hypnogogic and hynopompic states between sleeping and waking.
Psychological / emotional perspective: Dreaming of a gate usually signifies some kind of change, often in awareness. We are passing a threshold in our lives, perhaps trying something different or moving from one phase of life to another. Often the awareness of change is highlighted by the type of gate.
For instance, a farm gate would tend to indicate a work change, whereas a garden gate might represent pleasure.
