Dream meaning of figure

To dream of figures, indicates great mental distress and wrong.

You will be the loser in a big deal if not careful of your actions and conversation.

The representational shape of figures is always of a piece with the object, or being, to which they allude. Symbolically speaking, a cock is the samething as its figure whether painted, engraved or sculpted. When the figure is that of a living being, this being provides the predominant sense, although secondary meanings may be derived from the colour, the form, etc.

When the figures are geometric, or when they represent architectural masses, it is again the symbolism of form which comes into play.

Schematic figures—marks, signs, tattoos, engravings, prehistoric or primitive inscriptions, magic alphabets, etc—are all related to graphic symbolism, which is founded in the main upon space, number and geometric form.

Symbolic or mythic ideas which reveal some influence, resemblance or reminiscence of a natural form or figure, acquire thereby powerful symbolic implications. So, for example, the head of Medusa and the octopus; the swastika and the starfish; the double-bladed axe and the hawk in flight.

To dream of a multitude of unrelated figures is a forerunner to the discovery of some previously hidden rivalry or opposition; however, you will be better able to combat it in the open. A dream of a woman’s or man’s figure indicates a period of pleasant diversions.
