Because each person’s family experiences are so involved and vary so much from individual to individual it is difficult to say anything definitive about families in dreams. If the dream does not seem connected to our actual family, then it could relate to our inner “family,” the different aspects of our own psyche.

Dreaming of your family indicates the need for a return to basics, to a part of yourself from where you have been running away.

If you fight with family it means you are dragging internal conflicts that affect your life. But if the relationship is good it means that you seek harmony.

A dream of a large and/or happy family, whether human or animal, predicts a general upswing in all your interests.

All the people in your dreams represent aspects of you, the dreamer. When they are known to you, the dream can also be reflecting your outside relationships in the waking world. However, the most value in interpreting such a dream still connects to how the people represent aspects of yourself. This is the most difficult to do when the people in your dreams are members of your family. You are who you are in life as a result of the role you played in the dynamics of your family. As you grow and mature through life, you will have a sense of your identity changing. However, if your family of origin creates the setting and characters of a dream, you can interpret such a dream as relating to your personality and identity as it relates to your first few decades of life.

Family Members: All people in a dream represent aspects of your own personality. This is also true of family members, although such dreams may also be reflecting your waking-life relationships as well.

Your first relationships in life are with the individuals who make up your family of origin, and all the relationships you have for the rest of your life are reflections of these original dynamics.
When interpreting a dream that involves a family member, consider the qualities of that person first and the relationship you have to the person second.

Each person in your family lives inside you as an aspect of your personality based on these qualities.

Parents relate more to a sense of personal authority.
Siblings connect with different choices or behaviors in your waking life.

When a family member appears in a dream, ask yourself what quality the person embodies that might be called for in some situation or circumstance in your waking life at the time of the dream.

You love them, you hate them, you can’t do much about them. Families are such an important part of life, like it or not, that most people are bound to dream about them. Even those who aren’t close to their families usually have some kind of support system of friends that stands in for a family. But what does your dream tell you about your relationship with your family, your view of yourself, and your approach to life?

  • If you dream of having a good time with your family, you feel secure and supported in your social network.
  • If you dream of fighting with your family, you are uneasy about some aspect of yourself that you consider to be inborn. Is it that negative attitude you got from your mother, or that judgmental streak from your father? Whatever it is, you have felt it within and you don’t like it, so you are fighting with your dream family to deny it. Accepting it as part of yourself might be a more helpful strategy.
  • If you dream that your family is in trouble and you have to save them, you feel a strong responsibility for the health and welfare of the people you care about. They are lucky to have you. Dreams of a family in trouble can also symbolize real waking-life problems you might have sensed but not consciously noticed. Check into it. You might be able to help.
  • Dreams that you have a different family than you do in your waking life suggest that you feel more comfortable and understood by another group of people, and you don’t always understand your actual family. Sometimes they seem like strangers. Remember, the family that dreams together stays together.
