In your dream, what types of people are present? Are these people friends or strangers? What role do they play? Consider that they are there to show you aspects of yourself that need to be examined.

Dreaming of old people can symbolize a desire or a search for wisdom. It can be a reminder you need to look within and reflect on the truth within your heart. It may be you need to ask for the help or support of someone with more experience so you can see things objectively. Seeing old people interacting and communicating with each other reminds you of your own potential using your creative ingenuity to achieve success.

People from your Past
Dreaming of people from your past can be a reminder of what you are missing, but it depends on who the people are who appear in your dreams. Try to remember who they are when you awake. This type of dream can be your subconscious highlighting something you may be missing in your waking life. But you need to take into account all of what is happening and the people in the dream to get a greater understanding. We most commonly dream of the old loves from our past lives.
To dream of an old lover can mean you are longing for passion or there is something you desire in your life. This can be because you are feeling unloved. Are you wishing a relationship was like an old one? Is there something you want or need? Maybe you think you would be better off trying something new. This type of dream can remind the ‘grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence’.
Dreaming of an old lover can also mean you are daydreaming about what you wish things to be. An old lover can bring up old feelings about a lost life. Are you currently questioning where your life is heading? Just remember, the danger is that you often see the past as you wish it to be rather than the reality of how it really was. This dream can warn to be wary of fantasizing about your past. When dreaming of the past is linked sexually this indicates your current relationship does not meet your physical or emotional needs.
Dreaming of being lured back by an old lover represents a need for more physical affection. Maybe you are feeling others do not understand you. Yelling at an old lover means there are old issues you still need to deal with so you can move on and fully commit to your next or current relationship. For someone who has been married for many years and you have this type of dream, it can mean you need some excitement in your life. Has your life become boring and mundane? Well, get out there and do some socializing. It cannot hurt.
