  • The act of incest in a dream may symbolize a real-life incident that you witnessed or were involved in. If this is the case, talk to a good psychotherapist.
  • For a man, a dream of incest with his daughter will usually express fear of the erotic element in your feelings toward his daughter in real life; but also be a straightforward expression of desire.
  • In a man's dream involving his sister, the sister may represaent the anima figure representing the feminine side of his nature.
  • In a man's dream with his mother, the mother may express the desire he felt for her as a boy.
  • For a woman,if the dream is about her father, it may be an expression of her (repressed) childhhod desire for her father. A dream with her brother may be an animus symbol, her masculine qualities. A dream with incest with her son, or incestous desires, are probably expressing her anxiety concerning her - natural - sensuous pleasure in the sight and touch of him.
  • A man's dream or fantasized incest with his mother may represent a death-wish, a desire to return to the womb.
