Here's what it means if you dream about getting rich

What is almost as good as getting rich in real life? Well, dreaming about hitting it big, of course. You wake up and for a moment, you think you may never have to worry about money again. Except, according to experts, dreaming about getting rich is not necessarily about finances at all. In fact, it seems a dream that centers around coming into a considerable fortune can indicate you are quite satisfied with another area of your life (via Best of Life). Perhaps you are feeling yourself over gaining wisdom or are proud about a recent accomplishment — either way, dreaming about getting rich can indicate you are recognizing your value to other people in your life.

Oh, and we hate to break it to you, but this type of dream is likely not a premonition that are about to win a large sum of money — if only that were true!

Here's what to ask yourself if you dream about wealth

Woman's Day echoes the notion that a dream that centers around getting rich isn't necessarily about actual cold, hard cash. Instead, maybe your dreams are reflecting a feeling you have about riches in other areas of your life — not just the financial arena. Are you truly enjoying new friendships? Is your love life right on track? Are you just feeling an overall sense of happiness about the way things are going: career, family, your physical fitness? If you hit it big while you're between the covers, say, like scoring a lottery jackpot, this can also mean you feel lucky!

Meanwhile, on Quora, amateur dream analysts shared their own interpretations of what it means to dream about getting rich. "Money in dreams will represent value. And as every person, place, and thing within a dream is an aspect or a part of you, the dreamer, it is more specifically representing your own self value and self worth," theorized one user. Another poster offered this take: "In a dream being rich could indicate that you'll be envied by people around you."
