Originally these women were servants of the nature, shamans or medicine women and had a positive symbolic meaning. This changed in the Middle Ages, the epoch of the witch’s pursuit. Mostly an old often also ugly woman who warns about characterless people. The bad fairy which brings mess in our soul life. Also in the dream the witch seems rather than a menacing fairy tale shape, shows a negative mother’s symbol which can mean interference in the most personal things. Deep-psychologically one understands them as an expression of fears of the edged out irrational contents of the unconscious which must be mastered by self-knowledge. A friendly witch can embody now and then also once natural attachment and wisdom. It is also interpreted as a symbol of the overemphasized physical love which remains dissatisfactory on a continuing basis. A man who sleeps in the dream with a witch feels a destructive passion in the awake life, possibly he is in bondage to a woman.
