Dream Interpretation/Dream about gypsies


I am on a coach to university (which in real life I will be goin to uni soon) and there are gypsies at the front of the bus everyone seems to be Affraid of them you can feel the power and strength they had on this bus but I was surprised to why they sat at the front when all the 'cool' kids always sat at the back.. So I was sat at the back with my friend who I don't know talking about How excited we are for uni I then realise we are close to stopping so to avoid the rush of everyone getting off I went to sit at the front and then the gypsies were having a go at me asking what I think in doing as there the first ones to get off I was trying to be nice and said you can still get off first then they were saying to me do you think your the bad man are you trying to be a bad man and I kept saying know and then this black non Gypsy women turned around and started going yeah do you think your a bad man so I just went and sat at the back and stopped myself from crying.. We then stopped at the gypsy estate and it was a bad atmosphere and there was a man who had a scar on his forehead outside was dead freaky.. But then I got dropped off at my high school .. Bearing in mind I'm in my last year of college I then woke up ... I really don't understand

Hey Elly,

I think this dream is about the social pecking order and you worrying about how you might fit in when you get to uni.  I wonder whether, if when you were at high school, there were lots of these cliquey groups struggling to be at the top of the pecking order.  Perhaps there were a lot of power struggles or bullying going on and it just caused a really bad vibe for you most of the time?  Maybe that's why you got dropped off at your old high school in the dream perhaps?  Your dreamself is linking your fear of not being accepted with what happened to you at high school.

The gypsies might represent a few things to you.  Firstly, they travel from place to place, and this is what you are doing - you will be travelling to another place to live closer to university.  Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but gypsies aren't the most popular people in England are they?  So they might represent a lower social status or they might represent a fear or concern about not being popular when you get to uni - or something like that.  On the bus though, the gypsies seemed to hold the most power due to their intimidation of others.  This is why they held the front of the bus in your dream, because the front of the bus would represent the front of the pecking order so to speak.  You, on the otherhand, took the back of the bus, which is traditionally where lower class persons would sit in a segregationalist society.

When you went to wait at the front of the bus, it symbolised a challenge to the social norms and conventions of who is better than who, and you got a dressing down.  Maybe you are worried about breaking some unwritten rule and offending someone when you get to uni????  

In general, I think the dream is about you worrying about how you are going to fit in at uni - maybe stemming back to some bad experiences in high school. Maybe the place you will be living in is very different to Cumbria? My advice to you is to stand your ground if you get blown off by someone.  You have just as much right to be there as anyone else!  But on a positive note, I think you can expect a more civilised and positive attitude at Uni.  Afterall, you're not in high school anymore.  Those days and any bad experiences you had then are long gone.

Have fun at uni and study hard! Lol.  Please let me know if you have any other questions or comments about your dream.  I would be only too pleased to help further if needed.

Hello and thank you for checking out my profile!

If I am 'UNAVAILABLE' or 'MAXED OUT', you can catch me at my Dream Meanings Shop.

Dreams About Death


I view each dream as a metaphor for what you are experiencing in your life. My goal is to guide you into discovering the meaning of your own dreams by explaining the logic behind dream symbols, posing some guiding questions for you to think about, and presenting some possible scenarios as to what your dream could relate to. I believe that dreams reflect our true thoughts and feelings about our life and can therefore help to clarify where we should direct our life in the future.

PS. I am desperate for reviews on my Dream Meanings Shop at the moment so if you can spare even just $1 to buy an interpretation and give me a review, I would be overjoyed!!!


I have always had an interest in dreams. Over the past few years, I have helped hundreds of people by interpreting their dreams in online dream interpretation forums and here on allexperts. Allexperts is by far my favourite site to interpret dreams on because I get so much amazing feedback here and people are genuinely appreciative and encouraging of what I do!! If I ever need a little "pick me up" all I need to do is read my feedback page!!! And just to add, The Allexperts team ALWAYS answer all my emails straight away. I cannot speak highly enough of the Allexperts team!!

I have a bachelor of arts degree majoring in sociology and Aboriginal studies. I have also completed 12 month units in religious studies and psychology, as well as a number of post graduate units in epidemiology.

My educational background has given me insight and knowledge about different cultural beliefs and the way people behave and live together. The things we dream and the meaning of the symbols within are not solely a creation of our own minds, but are influenced by our history, our cultural beliefs, and the beliefs and behaviour of those around us.

Above all, I have learned most through hands-on practical experience and through seeking valuable feedback from the people for whom I have interpreted dreams.
