When you describe characters in a dream as relatives, they are usually not the immediate family. If they are, see Family. People can appear as family members in a dream, although in real life you don’t know who they are. This type of setting usually reflects an experience that has left you wondering about your behavior and dynamics. Relatives not included in the immediate family can represent that side of you that you believe might ‘rescue’ you from the family dynamics that you inherited. Aunts, uncles and grandparents provide care in a more unconditional way. Since everyone in a dream represents 'you' explore what they represent to understand emerging characteristics that might help you through difficulty. See People.
