What does it mean to see an uncle in a dream?

Uncle Dream Meaning: From 17 Different Sources

All people in your dream represent aspects of yourself. An uncle connects to family history as it relates to the previous generation, so he will have a loose connection to a life view generated by your parents.

The fact that he is a sibling to one of your parents allows you to see the influence of the generational dynamic without the direct challenges of the child / parent relationship. An uncle of yours appearing in a dream is asking you to consider how some waking-life issue relates to family history and patterns.

Aunt / Uncle

For Jungians, an aunt may represent the anima (feminine aspect) of a male dreamer and the uncle the animus (masculine aspect) of a female dreamer. Uncles and aunts in dreams can also be symbols of your unconscious feelings towards your mother or father. The most general characteristic of dreams that feature your aunt is that they depict an aspect of yourself. For many people an aunt is a role model, so if she figures in your dream, she is commenting on the success or failure of certain strategies you may be using in your waking life. An uncle may also be a role model and, however you feel about him in waking life, your dream may use him to make a comment on the success or failure of strategies you may be using in waking life. For example, if you think of your uncle as a failure or a success, ask yourself what it is in yourself that you consider to be a failure or a success. ... aunt / uncle dream meaning
