Interpretation of dream: Legitimate

In spiritual terms a legitimate act is one that has been sanctioned by a higher authority. When we offend against our own moral code we may have dreams about being legitimate and working within the framework of the law. Working within societies that are not particularly permissive in outlook, we may dream of needing to have our actions sanctioned if our autonomy is threatened in waking life. We may also in dreams find ourselves rebelling through illegal acts. Dreaming of being illegitimate for both men and women suggests a lack of self worth and sometimes a questioning of our right to a place in society.
