Zechariah 1–6 records eight visions the Lord gave Zechariah about the house of Israel. In summary, and from research, they were:

A vision of horses (Zechariah 1:7–17), which teaches about the merciful way the Lord will deal with Jerusalem

A vision of four horns and four carpenters (Zechariah 1:18–21), which is about the powers (horns) that scattered Judah and what will happen to these powers

A vision of the man with a measuring line (Zechariah 2), which testifies of the Lord’s protective power over His people

A vision of the high priest (Zechariah 3), which symbolizes how Judah can overcome Satan and be cleansed through the power of Jesus Christ (“the Branch” in v. 8)

A vision of a lampstand and olive trees (Zechariah 4), which symbolizes how the Lord would give power to His people by His Holy Spirit

A vision of a flying scroll (Zechariah 5:1–4), which taught that those who were dishonest in the land were condemned

A vision of a woman in a basket (Zechariah 5:5–11), which testifies that wickedness would be removed from the people

A vision of four chariots (Zechariah 6:1–8), which symbolizes spreading the Lord’s power over the whole earth
