The term cousin is usually used to refer to people who are our “first cousins”, which is, the people we have share common ancestors with, such as grandparents.
In general terms, a cousin is used to refer some familial relationship which people have a common ancestor, but more than two generations away from the most recent common ancestor they have.
These are often called distant cousins or just relatives.
Cousins can be maternal or paternal, depending on the side to which they are related.
People often dream about their cousins, especially if they happen to see them often. Such dreams are a reflection of their reality, but sometimes carry an important message for the dreamer, often regarding the relationship they have with that cousin.
Sometimes the dream isn’t related to the cousin and has some other significance for the person who had the dream.
A dream about a cousin could symbolically represent some quality you possess related to the feelings or memories you have in regards to this cousin.
The meaning of the dream often is often related to the fact of closeness between you and your cousin.
The dream has a different meaning (more personal one) if the cousin from your dream is someone you deeply care about and a different one if the cousin you dreamed about isn’t someone you know well or someone you don’t care much about (in that case the dream usually has to do with some things you feel detached from and don’t feel connected to).
Often that dream could reveal some issues you have with your cousin and you are not aware of having them.
Often through dreams we tend to realize our true feelings about people, and in this case, the details of the dream will reveal the current feelings you have for the cousin you dreamed about.
Dreams about cousins could also reflect family conflicts or family harmony, depending on the context of the dream and the relationship you have with this cousin in reality.
Often this dream indicates arguments and disagreements between the members of your family and sometimes it could indicate your alienation from the rest of the family.
In some cases, dreams about cousins could reveal your feeling of isolation and loneliness, as well as feeling left out by the rest of your family.
Dreams where you spend time with your cousin or cousins you don’t see often, could be a reminder from your subconscious to begin spending more time with your cousins, and could be an indication that you have neglected your family, and possibly the cousin you dreamed about.
