The figure of a wizard in dreams is he who has learned to use his powers of manifestation in a dispassionate manner. He is merlin, the sorcerer and the magician. As a stage on the journey to wise old man, he is a recognizable archetype. Consult the entries for alchemy, magic / magician, wand and witch as well as the information on sorcerer in archetypes in the introduction.
Psychological / emotional perspective: Conventionally pictured in long flowing robes with a long beard, he tends to be seen as somewhat otherworldly. In dreams he appears when we are struggling with the idea of being able to use natural power in a magical way. He usually epitomizes the alchemical idea of transmutation – turning the crass into the beautiful.
Material aspects: In a workaday environment a wizard is a set of computer instructions which enables you to complete a task. Both practically and magically this image is one that can enable us to use the expertise we inherently possess.
Gives gender - specific: In a man’s dream the wizard may well represent his own sense of power and control of the energies. In a woman’s dream he will suggest the nonemotional use of authority.
