(Women) In a dream, ribs represent women. Whatever may affect one’s ribs in a dream will manifest in his wife, for it is said that Eve was created from Adam’s rib. Ribs in a dream represent a protective shield. Their parable is like that of a tent and its pillars, a house and its foundation, the roof of a house, or a boat and its boards. Ribs in a dream also represent relatives of different social environments, or they could represent their stations of love, unity, compassion toward one another, or help they render to one another. Ribs in a dream also denote secret deeds or concealed actions. Ribs in a dream also mean punishment.
If one sees his ribs standing out, or exposed in a dream, he may face punishment for a crime or a sin he has committed.
If one’s ribs grow strong and the flesh surrounding them becomes healthier in a dream, then they represent prosperity, recovering from an illness, gaining weight, or growing fat. Ifone sees himself in a dream without ribs, it means that he will lose what the ribs represent of either a wife, a child, money or perhaps, he could have engaged in something wrong, thinking it to be right. One’s ribs in a dream also mean a sickness, or bending of one’s shoulders because of old age. Eating one’s own ribs in a dream means becoming a burden to his family and relatives, or it could mean that he may sell wood for living, or work at a lumberyard. (Also see Body’)
To see ribs in your dream symbolizes unhappiness and lack of money.
If you dreamed of the kind of ribs you eat, the meaning depends on whether you ate them or not.
If you did, you are getting close to the truth in a certain matter.
If others were eating the ribs, or you just saw them but didn’t eat them, you will see others obtain the object you have been striving for.
To dream of any harm to your body is an unfavourable omen. Look out for treachery among those you trust.
