To dream that you see it clear and serene* shows you to be esteemed and beloved by all people, and that those who are your enemies and envy you shall be reconciled to you. It also denotes the discovery of lost goods, or things that have been stolen.

If the person so dreaming be at law, it shows he shall overthrow his adversary; and if he designs a voyage or journey, it shows he shall be successful therein. And, in short, all good things are denoted by a clear and serene Air. But to dream the Air is cloudy, dark, and troubled, denotes to the dreamer sadness, grief, sickness, melancholy, loss of goods, hindrance of business, and is in all things the reverse of dreaming what we have before mentioned of a clear and serene air. But for a man to dream that the air is very calm, and without winds and storms, denotes his life to be peaceable, and his maimers good, and that he shall be acceptable to all company; and that whatever business, journeys by land, or voyages by sea, he undertakes shall prosper and succeed according to his wishes. And yet there are some authors who are of opinion that a serene air betokens great pain, and that to dream the air is cloudy, shows dispatch of business.

To dream of being raised from the earth and flying in the air, shows a person shall obtain praise and honor, according to the height that he dreams he flies above the earth: if high? the more praise; if low, the less.... The Complete Dream Book

Saturn is a Roman deity representing the Golden Age. He is associated with the Greek god Cronos. Cronos was a Titan, the son of Uranus and the father of Zeus (Jupiter). Cronos dethroned his father and was later dethroned by Zeus. Thus, from a psychoanalytic point of view, dreaming about Saturn may be symbolic of some aspects of the Oedipus complex. It may bring up the desire to challenge authority and gain personal power and identity. Astrologically, Saturn represents a wide range of positive and negative attributes. He represents barriers, misfortune, fixation and impotence, as well as loyalty, righteousness, consistency, knowledge and self-denial. Saturn symbolizes man’s ability to recognize the difficulties of life and to confront the impulsive and passion motivated lifestyle. Dreaming about Saturn, may be an unconscious message regarding self-restrain and a need for a more intellectual, moral and spiritual life. Also, Saturn’s influence has a way of amplifying reality.

If there is melancholy or despair, it remains fixed. Thus, dreaming of Saturn might call your attention to unpleasant aspects of life or to self-negating emotions. However, the psyche may be providing you with knowledge that can be used to motivate and transform current reality through hard work and self-discipline. ... The Bedside Dream Dictionary
