Dream meaning of aunt

It is common for some relatives to appear in your dreams, revealing important meanings to take into account. Such is the case of dreaming about your aunt, a dream where it is related to the strengthening of your family ties. Your current position within the family and your attitude towards it.

All the members that make up a family have a unique symbolism in dreams. So: Dreaming about your father, your grandparents or your cousins will never be the same. To dream of your aunt can be interpreted as a substitute for the maternal figure, perhaps because of her death or because you feel closer to your aunt than to your mother.

Not being part of the nuclear family, the representation of the aunt in dreams is of the family union and in most cases you dream it when you feel detached from your family. Aunts in families represent the second mothers. For this reason, they are also very important people who fill us with care, advice and wisdom.

Perhaps you have experienced a problem with a family member, maybe you are living away from home or you are living a season with very little family communication. In all cases, dreaming of your aunt is a time that comes to bring the family back together. You should take advantage of the coming time to schedule reunions where you can all be present and reminisce about old times.

It is also common for your aunt to appear in dreams in various contexts. Dreams in which relatives appear leave a feeling of great uneasiness. But do not be afraid, these dreams are a time to remember loved ones who are not with you even if you are not with them all the time. The aunt in dreams is synonymous of brotherhood, tranquility and absolute collaboration.

Dreaming of a deceased aunt

To dream of your deceased aunt denotes that you are about to learn the secrets of someone you have been close to for a long time. Dreams where your dead aunt appears symbolize the morals and attributes of your relatives. She can be a link to your ancestry and your past. That secret that you will learn about someone else, may have to do with you in some way.

If you dream of your deceased aunt it may also signify different personality traits that you possess. You may be embracing these traits, or you may abhor them. An aunt in dreams may also represent that you need a friend or someone you can confide in or relate to closely.

Dreams of dead great aunt

To dream of a dead great-aunt implies that there is a part of your culture or family values that you must abandon. In case the dreamer is a man, the great-aunt is the feminine symbol of his personality. In case it is a woman who is dreaming, the image of the aunt often refers to her own shadow. Only in exceptional cases would she represent an ideal.

Dreams of a dead great-aunt often symbolize “sound judgment”. You have realized that a situation or person does not add value to your life. And because of that, you are becoming emotionally overburdened for no good reason. That’s why you’re focusing better on yourself for a while, and you need to eliminate any toxic or emotionally draining events.

Dreaming of aunt-in-law

To dream of your aunt-in-law refers to you being a trustworthy person. It can also mean a person you have just met but who will gain your trust in a short time. Also, it denotes that you will share your secrets with that person and develop a personal connection that will make you closer to them.

Having a dream vision with your aunt-in-law, could mean that there is something important you really want someone to know, or just something you want to talk about. Likewise, it could mean that you are arguing too much with a person in real life. Next time you have such a dream, try and think about what you really want to talk to that person about.

Pregnant Aunt Dreams

To dream of a pregnant aunt suggests a change of school or job. These changes will be repeated proportionally to the number of children you have in your womb. Be prepared for a change in your job whereby you could be transferred to a new location or receive a promotion. If you are in school, your parents may be planning to move and thus the need for a change of school.

If the pregnant aunt you dream about comes from your mother’s side of the family, you should try to be less impatient in your real life. If the aunt is from your father’s side, you will benefit through a family connection. Also, the aunt you dream about may represent aspects of yourself that you like or dislike. So dreaming of pregnant aunt, is always an invitation to turn to ourselves.

Dreaming of aunt and cousin

If you have dreamed of aunt and cousin trouble is coming. If you see that you are talking to your cousin but not to your aunt, this dream means that you will suffer anxiety and fear for some unfortunate events. If you are talking to both of them, it symbolizes the duality present in your life that can cause you serious misunderstandings.

Dreams with sick aunt

To dream of a sick aunt symbolizes disharmony in the obstacles you are experiencing. It may also represent the need for emotional or physical repair. You may be trapped in a cycle of depression. It is important to pick yourself up, move on and overcome this difficulty. The illness of a relative is always a warning to be brave.

Dreaming of a crying aunt

If you have dreamed of aunt crying it may represent that a person you have just met will hurt you. You will lose something precious because of this event. The message that the subconscious sends you with this dream is that you need to strengthen family ties. Above all, with those people with whom you have differences or with whom you have not seen for a long time.

Dreams with angry aunt

Dreams with angry aunt may mean that you will get sick and will not be able to get out of bed for a long time. If you see that your aunt is full of anger or hits you in your dream, it denotes that you will not overcome the illness that you will easily contract. This dream vision is best interpreted by analyzing all the details, such as events and happenings, rather than with the visual image of your aunt itself. In general, it symbolizes your search for family acceptance.

Dreaming of sad aunt

To have a dream vision with sad aunt denotes that you are a person in search of constant change. It may also symbolize that there is a person close to you that you appreciate, but is currently feeling very uncomfortable. Likewise, that close person needs a lot of support to get ahead in the face of his problems, and that there is nothing that can stop him so that in time, everything can be achieved and he can get out of this bad time he is going through.

Curb a tendency toward impatience if your dream involved a paternal aunt, but if the aunt was on your mother’s side, you will benefit through a family connection.

All people in your dream represent aspects of yourself.

An aunt connects to family history as it relates to the previous generation, and so she will have a loose connection to a life view generated by your parents. The fact that she is a sibling to one of your parents allows you to see the influence of the generational dynamic without the direct challenges of the child/parent relationship.

An aunt of yours appearing in a dream is asking you to consider how some waking-life issue relates to family history and patterns.
