A cross is one of the oldest and most universal saint symbols, it metaphorically means the merging of the heaven and the earth, the matter and the spirit, as well as the femininity and masculinity.
It can appear in our dreams directly – we can see somebody carry a cross or carry it ourselves, we can see a cross on a wall, in a church or on a chain on somebody’s neck, we can knee in front of a cross, but also see cross-shaped items, like anchors or trees, which should also be interpreted as this symbol.
