1. To want something represents a desire perhaps more frivolous than needful.
2. One is in a state of misfortune.
To dream of wanting something may be revealing you what your true needs, drives and desires are, as opposed to the needs and desires of your public persona.
1- To be conscious of a want in a dream is perhaps to link with our basic nature. We mav have suppressed those wants in waking life only to have them surface in dreams.
2- When in dreams we find we want to do or be something different, we are aware of the potential within us either to achieve success or to change our lives.
For instance, to dream of wanting to be a poet instead of an actor can suggest exploration of one’s creativity in a different format.
3- Desire in its fullest sense although the dreamer should take care as want is sometimes considered a form of sin.
To dream that you are in want, denotes that you have unfortunately ignored the realities of life, and chased folly to her stronghold of sorrow and adversity.
If you find yourself contented in a state of want, you will bear the misfortune which threatens you with heroism, and will see the clouds of misery disperse.
To relieve want, signifies that you will be esteemed for your disinterested kindness, but you will feel no pleasure in well doing.
