Rivals Dream Interpretation and Meaning
Rivals in your dreams could mean big things
If you have a dream that has to do with you having a rival—whether you’re being beaten by a rival, or whether it’s you who is doing the beating—your dream is calling to your attention the issue of your ability to succeed, follow through, and assert yourself.
Just the existence of a rival in your dream means you are struggling with how to stand up for yourself in your daily life. You might be having trouble being assertive and identifying your own rights.
Getting more specific: if the rival in your dream beats you or gets the best of you, that means you feel that you’re neglecting your responsibilities in real life, and that you are doing damage to yourself by not living up to your potential. This may be something that’s been bothering you but that you haven’t had time or energy to articulate to yourself in your waking life.
If you beat your dream rival, you might be having a premonition about some future success in your life. This could mean you have a new, supportive, and loving relationship headed your way. It could also mean you’re about to take a step up at work—perhaps get a promotion or a raise in which you’d be trusted with more responsibility.
