Dreaming of women is very common, and is archetypal according to dream expert Carl Jung. If you dream of a woman that you do not know, you want to pay very close attention to the traits and qualities that are coming through. You may be projecting these traits onto someone else in your dream, but they could be traits that you have that would be very useful to you in your waking life.
If you are male and you dream of a woman that you don’t know, this person could be a soul connection or twin soul that is trying to connect with you in dreams. If you are married and a woman that you don’t know comes to you in a dream, this woman will play a role in your emotional life in the very near future. Sometimes women that we do know that have passed on from this lifetime appear in our dreams. This is very similar to dreaming of spirits, and this is a soul from your past making a connection to you in dreams.
A woman in your dream could also be a mother figure, and might represent issues with your mother. What are the underlying feelings and additional details in the dream? If there are multiple women in a dream, the message is that multiple people are involved in a current situation and you will need to carefully consider all perspectives before you settle on a decision to stay in or leave from a particular situation in your life.
