This image refers to fairness in contact and dealings with the world and the Self.
The image points to the inner, psychic authority of the Self that judges you as well as others. It suggests you take on a more neutral and detached attitude toward life. Observe your own “games” a little more closely.
To see (or be) a referee in your dream, signifies an inner battle between your own ideals and values, and those of others.
