The key is the object of which you probably do not think very often, unless you’ve just lost it. Most often it’s used to open locks and padlocks.
The vision of the key can be very important for the dreamer, because it is a symbol of new opportunities, changes, initiation, knowledge or a clue to the solution of a problem. If you dream about a key, you should take bold decisions (for example, invest money or legalize successful relationship). When the key is damaged, broken or lost, the dream warns against trouble.
Detailed meaning of the dream:
