As a waterway, the ditch can portray how emotions are wearing away at your foundation. It can also suggest a place where you ‘ditch’ something and allow it to be covered or buried through the accumulating passage of time. Sometimes it suggests a ‘last ditch effort,’ where you may be forced to approach the ditch to dis-cover or ‘uncover’ the truth of something. The ditch symbolizes how you have buried something that ‘collects floating debris’ in the same way that projection overlays the past upon the present. See Abyss, Water, and River.
