Stepfather dream of a stepfather represents a decision that you have no control over. Fathers in dreams typically reflect the conscience or our ability to make a decision. A stepfather is then symbolically a substitute choice that is beyond our ability to control. You may feel a choice has been made for you or that you’ve been pressured into a decision.
Negatively, a stepfather may reflect a decision that you can’t stand putting up with. Struggling to come to terms with a change that you don’t like.
Alternatively, a stepfather may reflect tension or disappointment with your real father.
Example: A woman dreamed of seeing her deceased stepfather standing up from a coffin with bullet holes in him. She told him to rest and he didn’t listen. In waking life she got into a big fight with her sister over an issue which she had no control over. She had accepted losing the argument so that she could move on with her life and stop talking to her sister. However, she started talking to her sister again which brought up the old arguments. The stepfather in this case may have reflected her decision to speak to her sister when she didn’t like her sister as a person because she felt unable to avoid her sister.
