Spiritually there is a degree of ambivalence in the symbol of the beard and the meaning will depend on the dreamer?s own culture. It may mean wisdom and dignity, or alternatively it may mean deceit and deviousness. The bearded Wise Old Man of the archetypes signifies inner wisdom. We perhaps need to consider more masculine attributes in ourselves or others. To dream of cutting or having a beard cut suggests a loss of power. To dream of a man with a beard generally means we must guard against cover-up and deceit, though it can also be a sign of good luck. In a mans dream a beard suggests masculine power but in a womans dream it suggests that someone is trying to hide information. If a woman is growing a beard in a dream it shows she needs to be more assertive.
