To hear bad news in your dream, signifies that you will have success and good friends to support you.
To dream of hearing good news suggests upcoming disappointments.
A dream of watching, reading or listening to a news report suggests that you will gain new insight into a problem that has been troubling you. Success will come faster if you learn to be more vocal and express your needs to others.
It is not a good omen to hear news in your dream, unless it is painful or worrying—in fact, it is a dream of contrary.
1. Fortune and relationships; good news means good friends.
2. Use caution in expressing anger or frustration, especially with children (to hear bad news).
3. Reverse: good news means bad news in the ofﬁng.
4. Important information is being conveyed (note content of news).
Dreaming of seeing or hearing news is about the future. Pay attention, this may be very important. Alternatively, your dream could be helping you to vent out any negativity that you saw on the news recently. Consider the subject matter and the feeling tone to discern the significance of this dream. See Prophetic Dreams and Venting Dreams.
To hear good news in a dream, denotes that you will be fortunate in affairs, and have harmonious companions; but if the news be bad, contrary conditions will exist.
