A vulture is a bird that feeds on carrion (dead animals). Popular culture has further invested them with the associated trait of waiting for something to die. So a dream about a vulture often reflects a situation in our waking life in which we feel that someone else is waiting for us to die, or death in a less literal way, such as waiting for us to fail.

A vulture dream can, of course, represent the opposite situation in which we are waiting for someone or something else to die or to fail.

Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary | Pamela Ball

Although it may seem surprising, the vulture is a symbol that, throughout history, has always had positive connotations. Not surprisingly, many people believed that because its diet is carrion, the vulture had a special relationship with Mother Nature. Thus, the Parses—followers of Zoroaster— expose their dead on the top of tall towers so the vultures devour them in order to facilitate their rebirth. Likewise, in India the vulture appears as a symbol of protective spiritual forces that substitute parents: an emblem of devotion and spiritual advice. In Western culture, this bird has, however, negative connotations. The presence of vultures in dreams indicates the possibility that some people are waiting for a mistake to take advantage of the situation.

For the gypsies, oneiric vultures warn you against corrupt people around you.
