Psychological Dream Meaning: You may be refusing to accept an influence in your life or a situation that is being imposed upon you. If you are the one rejected this may reveal that you have hidden feelings of a lack of self-worth or alienation from others. Sometimes there are sexual undertones to this type of dream. Freud would say that it is you who are rejecting yourself. Your super-ego (conventional conscience and attitudes) is rejecting your sexual desire. You may be punishing yourself.
Mystical Interpretation: Some dream oracles insist that you reverse your dream. Rejection therefore means success. Top
Psychological Dream Meaning: The people that appear in our dreams, and particularly strangers, usually represent facets of ourselves.

For example, if a man dreams of very feminine women, this may show a need to accept the feminine side of his nature. Similarly, a woman who dreams of assertive men may herself need to act in a more masculine way. And of course, the dream could be talking about real life scenarios and the true or repressed feelings you have for the people you know in reality.
