A verdict in a dream suggests that a judgement from a more spiritual source has become relevant. The spiritual law of cause and effect results in a ?ruling? being made. To dream we are on trial and a verdict has been given means that we have become aware that we have been judged, perhaps by our own moral code, perhaps by others. When we feel subject to scrutiny or judgement by others in waking life, perhaps having done something that could get us into difficulties, in dreams judges, courts and juries may hand down a verdict on our behaviour.
