To dream of a banquet represents overwhelming prosperity. Noticing all that you want coming together at the same time. Getting all the spotlight, attention, or sympathy you want. Feelings of deserving all you want. Feel good being noticed deserving respect and recognition. “Feasting” on power or a sense of accomplishment.
To dream of your food missing or already having been eaten at a banquet may reflect a lost opportunity to get attention or sympathy. It may also be a sign that you’re putting yourself last or are not trying hard enough to attract attention. Not acknowledging your needs. Allowing other people to enjoy themselves with your accomplishments.
Example: A man dreamed of entering hall. In waking life his rich jealous abusive father died and left him with all his money. He finally felt like a real man in life who deserved to be treated with respect as an adult.
Example 2: A woman dreamed of a banquet that was prepared for her, but noticed that it wasn’t for her birthday or wedding party. In waking life she was in love with someone outside of her marriage and was hesitating to enjoy herself having sex with the person she was cheating on. The banquet in this case may have reflected her feelings about her lover waiting for her to have lots of amazing sex.
