Any celebration is a time for a release of or change in energy, and a birthday gives an opportunity to look back and take stock, from a spiritual perspective, either of the year just past or of the decade.
Psychological / emotional perspective: Dreaming of a birthday signifies that we have the right to celebrate – either an anniversary or a new phase in life.
Material aspects: There may be a sense of anticipation about something which lifts us away from the ordinary. We may have a gift or talent which is now usable.

Vision: Celebrating your own birthday: a pleasant surprise is in store for you. Celebrating the birthday of another person: meeting other people will open up positive professional opportunities.

In addition, a birthday is a celebration of your personal existence and your individual characteristics are the gifts. They are worthy of being honored. Pay attention to the overall flavor of the birthday party. How did you feel?
Dreaming of your own, or another person’s birthday, means good luck is coming your way.
To dream of birthday presents - or receiving a birthday card - has the same meaning as above.
