1- To dream of an orphan indicates that we may be feeling vulnerable and possibly abandoned and unloved.

If we are looking after an orphan we are attempting to heal that part of us that feels unloved.

If we experience ourselves as having been orphaned it may indicate that we need to be more independent and self-sufficient.

2- We have to come to terms with our ability to grow up and to move away from our parents. When our lives force us into losing them, either by death or other circumstances such as moving away, we may experience the feeling of being orphaned.

3- Spiritual desertion.

Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary | Pamela Ball

Dreams of an orphan signify that you are feeling alone, lonely, cast out, uprooted, ungrounded, unloved, and maybe even victimized. You are in the midst of transformation, walking through the phase where you feel cast out from your former comfort zone, and you are having to find your own strength. During this challenging time, between the old and the new; don’t give up, keep moving as you do some soul searching that will lead you to the home that is within you.

Dreamers Dictionary | Garuda

The orphan is a symbol of an unwanted, unloved child, one who is needy, misunderstood, and abused by strict, un-nurturing people who exert merciless control and authority.

This symbol may represent childhood memories and fears of being abandoned.

The dreamer may be resisting inner needs to be childlike, or be emotionally cold and withdrawn from others who are close to the dreamer.

Dream Symbols in The Dream Encyclopedia | James R. Lewis and Evelyn Dorothy Oliver

See “adoption”

Dream Dictionary Unlimited | Margaret Hamilton

We experience our identity and sense of self as almost exclusively connected to the parenting we receive. To have no connection to those parents is to have a disconnected sense of identity. This can be either devastating or liberating, and the sensations of the dream will reveal more detail for you. An orphan in a dream may represent an idea, choice, behavior, or pattern that is not connected to the modeling you received from your parents. When a person loses his or her parents to death, the individual becomes an orphan, and such an image in a dream may relate to that fear or the processing of grief after it has occurred.

Orphaned / Adopted / Fostered

If you dream of being an orphaned, adopted or fostered child, this usually suggests that your relationships with members of your family in waking life have created some sense of loss and rejection in you. Dreaming of having lost your parents or being rejected by your parents so you become an orphan, adopted or fostered child may denote that you feel you didn’t get their unconditional love and attention, and that you have to find your own way in the world without their support. Alternatively you may feel as if you are an outsider in the relationship to your family. Perhaps you have been excluded or perhaps you have little in common with them. Do you consider yourself rejected or at odds with the rest of your family? Whatever the reason, your dream may be suggesting to you that you need to create a surrogate family to get the support you need; this may be with your friends or your partner, and they will be able to help you feel loved, secure and accepted for who you are.

Another explanation of such dreams is that it is time for you to be more independent and self-reliant by moving away from your parents. When life forces you into permanently or temporarily losing your parents, either by death or by other circumstances such as foreign travel, you may experience dreams of being orphaned. The dream might not refer to your relationship with your family at all, but might be telling you that you are feeling abandoned, unloved, rejected and misunderstood by your partner, friends or colleagues in waking life.

If this is the case, the dream connects to feelings of belonging or not belonging in waking life.
