What Does It Mean To Dream About Sister?


The figure of the sister in dreams is usually positive. The tradition that accentuates during this archetype is of a loving and disinterested helper, a virginal feminine element (stripped of sexual connotations), unlimited trust, through the most difficulties of life.

This absolute and uncompromising goodness forces you to confront and judge yourself.

Unconsciously, “uncomfortable” questions arise: “What have I done to deserve such goodness? and “Will I be equally available?” Disharmony, over the rest from comparison and also the judgment that results from your own interiority, may emerge.

Many sources report concepts like “jealousy”, “envy”, “conflict”, and this can be correct, but all of them visit the psyche of the dreamer who is within the presence of an archetype of idealized perfection.

Therefore, in its basic meaning, dreaming of the sister may be a symptom of a fundamental step in one’s life. Powerful reference figures are sought from which to get help for such.

This help ultimately translates into an accurate measurement of one’s capabilities through a perfect comparison. Let’s observe some more specific examples.


The feeling of “upward confrontation” is maybe more pronounced. The older sister is somehow a fusion between the “pure sister” and the “great mother.” The necessity for security, for concrete allies, for abandonment, for psychophysical rest.

Relax. If you’re ready to make this comparison, it implies that you’re worth more than overthinking, and you’ll achieve success in any situation.


  • She is a pure sister. You’ll be calm, smiling, sure of yourself, in a very positive and happy moment (for example, marriage, pregnancy, etc.) In these cases, it implies that you’re on the proper track, that you simply know and trust yourself.
  • But you may cry, be sad, suffer, even stimulate the dreamer’s protective instinct.
  • Attention: it means you’re deceiving yourself, that you just don’t want to work out or face your own fragility or weakness, which you project onto an external figure.
  • Again, envy, jealousy, annoyance, anger against yourself prevents you from seeing your flaws and intervening to boost them.
  • The changes that are taking place are overwhelming, they visit macrostructures of our personality that falter or are close to collapsing.

  • If sleep is the reason behind anxieties that persist even after we are awake, it’s an indication that we want concrete help to resolve matters. On the other hand, if you cry plenty during the dream, it implies that you recognize that you simply have it within you to beat the problems.
  • If the emotionality of the dream, is “under control”, it’s likely that we’ve already successfully passed the juncture.
  • In perspective, a positive dream. The crisis is so strong that it must be overcome, otherwise, it’ll get stronger, that’s why tradition assigns a positive omen to the present dream.


It indicates a high degree of coherence with itself in its positive version, especially when the “transport” is platonic; but it can hide dangerous pitfalls of self-referentiality, of excessive attention to oneself to the detriment of others, even a repressed will to dominate and control the foremost carnal aspects of such desire.

In these cases, it’s advisable to delve into the character of what involves us, perhaps with the assistance of an expert.


Apart from the understandable nostalgia for the dear, which refers to the non-public aspects of everyone, “remembering” the missing sister, in a dream / architectural level, doesn’t differ in the slightest degree from dreaming of the living sister.

Therefore, what has been said above applies to the opposite figures.
