If you dream of going to jail, it may not be what it seems. It might mean you are going to be away from society. You might be going into self isolation, quarantine, lockdown or getting busy with work.
Sometimes, the dream can mean you are away in a “jail” because you’re doing your work. You have no time to come out to mix and mingle.
Other dream interpretations involve your conscience. If you have a conscience about doing something bad, your anxiety may trigger dreams of retribution.
