Dreaming of a vulture signifies purification and insight. But the dream is often more nuanced.

It's a symbol of death, rebirth, and transformation. If the vulture is circling in the sky, it suggests you're being watched over by a higher power or that a situation in your life is coming to a close. It's a call to release the old to make way for the new. This bird is also a reminder to be resourceful and take advantage of the opportunities that are available to you.

A vulture can be a complex dream object to analyze. To really know confidently, it would be necessary to get a deeper understanding of the dreamer's life story and current life scenario.

Dreaming of a vulture, in Freudian terms, may be thought of as a manifestation of the superego, the moral component of the psyche.

Taking that analysis a bit deeper... It may be a representation of self-criticism or guilt, as the vulture is often associated with scavenging and opportunism. If the vulture is circling in the sky, it could symbolize an unresolved issue in your unconscious, circling your psyche until it is addressed. This dream may be a prompt to confront these feelings or situations, allowing for psychological growth and resolution. It's important to remember that dreams are highly personal and their interpretations can vary based on the individual's unique experiences and psychological state.0
