I am 31 years old. Before my marriage, I often dreamt of sitting on my fathers lap. The dream usually occurred whenever I felt tense. Nowadays, I dream of sitting on my husbands lap.

The dreams reveal your dependent nature. It seems earlier you depended on your father for solving all your problems, and now you expect your husband to help you. You wish to be cossetted and protected. Life is unpredictable, Sonia. You never know when what responsibilities will be thrust on you. Learn to be more self-reliant.
I am a 38-year-old working woman. I dreamt that I, my husband and our three-year-old son were living in a house along with many lions as a family. I wondered why people were afraid of the animals when they were so friendly with us. However, at the same time I was worried about the safety of my son. I feared that he was too young to protect himself from them.
As you are a working woman, you must be depending on someone to look after your child during your working hours. Though you trust the person yet you fear for the safety of your child.

I am 40 years old. Recently I dreamt that I was with my family in the rear courtyard of the house we lived in 20 years ago. I saw a fountain in the backyard which I was operating. Everyone seemed to be enjoying the scene.
A.K. Dutt, Patiala
Do you feel youre losing control over your family members? Everyone comes across this phase of life when one finds that others, especially children, are capable of taking independent decisions. Fountains denote vast possessions and pleasant journeys. Seeing yourself operate one means that attainment of success and happiness would depend on your actions. Learn to give in to others demands at times. But when you feel things are going wrong, do not hesitate to put your foot down.
I am a 57-year-old teacher. I dreamt of a fox. As I saw it sneak into our garden through the barbed wires, I chased it away.
