When you dream of something old, the message can be about the importance of the past and how it is influencing the present. In some cases its oldness can show its importance and relevance. At other times, its oldness can suggest that it is outworn and no longer appropriate to the present. An older person appearing in a dream can represent the Wise Guide and often they will present you with information that is very important to your life path. Pay careful attention to what they say to you. See also Ancient.
