Witch / sorcerer / wizard
In dreams, the appearance of a witch, sorcerer or wizard suggests the presence of a powerful archetype. In most dreams, witches represent destructive forces and repression. They may also suggest moodiness, dislike of wisdom, vindictiveness or jealousy. Some interpreters believe that witches reflect difficulties in relationship with our mother and, if the dreamer is a woman, she may become the ‘witch’ in relation to someone else. Since the early days of Christianity, witches have had a bad press; their association with the devil meant that dreams of witches have been linked with misfortune. Their original role, however, was as divine priestesses and bringers of wisdom and healing. You will need to consider your personal associations with witches and notice the feelings the dream triggers to fully interpret its meaning.
Magicians, wizards and sorcerers in dreams suggest magical abilities you possess but are not using to their fullest extent.
If the magician is using black magic, this suggests negative or selfish ways in which you might use your power of wisdom. To dream of magic that turns out to be a trick produced by a conjurer, hypnotist or magician should be regarded as a warning that all is not as it seems in waking life. Try to find out who is deceiving you; the identity of the conjurer may give you a clue.
If you are the conjurer, the dream may reflect some unease or anxiety about a current plan or negotiation in your waking life that rests on your skill and personality rather than on facts and common sense.
