Old Man/Old Woman
Carl Jung said that the wise old man is the “archetype of the spirit” and the “speaking fountainhead of the soul.” Dreaming about him may attempt to bring the dreamer into awareness of the larger meaning of ones life. Old people in dreams represent wisdom and maturity.
They may appear in our dreams at times of confusion and lack of direction, or when we need consultation and help in decision-making.
