DREAM DICTIONARY - River-crossing :Rivers in dreams tend to link to the energy that we devote to some relationship or to some task or job. So crossing a river can often mean that we have not got enough energy to devote to something else and that all the time and emotion we spend on that can be getting in the way. Also rivers can often symbolise our general mood and so crossing a river can suggest that we need to get out of the mood that we are in.
