Taste can symbolize your values and also, the desire to deepen your sensory relationship to life. You can have a ‘nasty taste in your mouth’ over a difficult encounter or you can long to ‘taste’ something fulfilling. This can also be a way of exploring your ‘tastes’ or values. Since taste is a sensory experience, dreaming of it can represent your need for greater fulfillment in what you are doing. Tasting is not eating and therefore you may be just sampling various ways of having your needs met. See Food.
