Someone who restricts and controls others in a prison of invisible bars
To dream of a warden implies a jailing of some sort in your waking life. Emotionally, you may be feeling imprisoned by your inability to defend yourself in a situation. Somebody may be taking advantage of your weaknesses to their own gain.
The best possible result will come from you gaining strength and courage from within before making any sudden moves.
