Dreaming of gravy, in Freudian terms, could signify the id's yearning for gratification and indulgence.

This can be a multi-faceted dream symbol though — It's a symbol of the unconscious desire for life's richness and satisfaction. Pouring gravy onto a dish, on the other hand, might represent the ego's attempt to add value or enhance a situation, perhaps a relationship or personal endeavor. It's a manifestation of the ego's role in mediating between the id's desires and the constraints of reality. However, if the gravy is spoiled or spilled, it could symbolize the superego's influence, indicating guilt or regret over missed opportunities or unfulfilled potential.
