The atmosphere or setting of a dream is an important aspect that can portray the condition of your 'inner' landscape. Being in space can portray uncertainty about your direction - or feeling that you are taking a path that others may not support. It is not necessarily negative. You may feel alone in your decision, but this can be a prerequisite if you are making changes. If the atmosphere is dark - you are exploring ideas that are hidden from consciousness. If the atmosphere feels oppressive, you may need to make more room in your life for your ambitions. A fiery atmosphere can portray anger or the need to express feelings that are bottled up. A cloudy or gloomy atmosphere can represent feeling depression - although an impending storm can be the first sign that new life is stirring within. See also Air.
