Detailed dream interpretation

In some traditions, it is said that the dream of a doctor foretells that you are going to be sick. In other traditions, the interpretation of a dream that displays a doctor is exactly the opposite: the doctor in your dream foretells full health and good wealth. If the doctor is a member of your family, you will encounter a pleasant family event, most probably a wedding.

If in your dream you are in the middle of a medical consultation, you will probably lose money. If you dream of yourself going to the doctor, you will receive some good news in regard to your business or your career in your waking life. If you dream yourself being a doctor, you will be respected in your waking life. A doctor departing in your dream suggests a possible illness. If the doctor is wearing a white coat, you are respected by your friends.

Going to the doctor in the dream suggests that you could have an accident in your waking life. If in your dream you are spending some time with a doctor during a meeting, this is a sign that your business will prosper, and that you will enjoy lots of good times in the near future.

If you are over fifty years of age, dreaming of a doctor suggests that your professional waking life has been a significant influence of your life’s progression. You have been very successful, so the key to this dream is to understand that this is a message to relax and take it easy.

If in your dream you are undergoing surgery and a doctor is in control of the situation, the dream refers to the need or possibility of sudden and painful change in your waking life, and you need to escape a dangerous situation. It also depends what surgery you are undergoing in the dream. Surgery on the eyes refers to your mentality. Heart surgery suggests the need of change in regard to others and your way of getting involved in various situations. Head surgery refers to the necessity to change an attitude, a way of thinking, or your ideas about a specific situation.

A plastic surgeon in your dream refers to changes in your self-image, including your physical aspect, but also the way others perceive you and the need to make others see you differently. This dream clearly refers to the rehabilitation of your self-image.

If in your dream a doctor tells you that you need to undergo a transplant, this suggests you need to receive outside help in order to make some personal changes. You obviously do not have the ability to undergo these changes alone. You need encouragement from your close friends in order to make some radical changes in your waking life. If you are talking to a doctor in an operating room, you are probably well-organized in your real life, and you know exactly what you have to do to change. You need patience to make the right changes in time.
