The Wise Man or Wise Woman often appear in later dreams when you are moving through a major transformation. They symbolize the intuition that is being awakened within as a profound guiding source in your development. Often associated with older characters and especially grandparents that have passed away, meeting these characters can portray the way that all that they represent has awakened within you. It is important to give careful consideration to whatever they are saying or teaching you. Their insight is often transcending the imagination, accessing a deeper level of intuition that can guide you forward. See Wise One under Archetypes and Universal Characters.
