To see your sister in your dream, symbolizes some aspect of your relationship with her, whether it one of sibling rivalry, caring, protectiveness, etc. Your sister may draw attention to your family role and sense of belonging. It may also serve to remind you that someone in your waking life has characteristics similar to your sister. Alternatively, your sister may be a metaphor and actually refer to a nun. In this case, she may represent spiritual issues. If you do not have a sister and dream that you have one, then it signifies some qualities that you need to activate or acknowledge within your own self. Pay attention to the actions and behaviour of your dream sister.Greek, LPN, RN, abbess, affiliate, ally, alter ego, analogon, analogue, associate, aunt, auntie, belonger, blood brother, brethren, brother, bub, bubba, bud, buddy, canoness, card-carrier, card-carrying member, cardholder, catechumen, charge nurse, charter member, church member, churchman, churchwoman, clergywoman, close copy, close match, clubber, clubman, clubwoman, cognate, committeeman, communicant, companion, complement, comrade, congenator, congener, conventioneer, conventioner, conventionist, conventual, coordinate, correlate, correlative, correspondent, counterpart, country cousin, cousin, cousin once removed, cousin twice removed, daughter, district nurse, dues-paying member, enlistee, enrollee, equivalent, father, fellow, first cousin, foster brother, frater, fraternity man, graduate nurse, grandnephew, grandniece, granduncle, great-aunt, great-uncle, guildsman, half brother, honorary member, image, initiate, insider, joiner, kid brother, kindred spirit, lady superior, laic, lay brother, lay sister, layman, laywoman, licensed practical nurse, life member, like, likeness, mate, member, mother, mother superior, near duplicate, nephew, niece, novice, nun, nuncle, nunks, nunky, nurse, nursing sister, obverse, one of us, parallel, parishioner, pendant, picture, pledge, postulant, practical nurse, prioress, private-duty nurse, probationer, probationist, probe, public health nurse, reciprocal, registered nurse, religieuse, school nurse, scrub nurse, second cousin, second self, secular, secular canoness, similitude, simulacrum, sis, sissy, sister-german, sistern, socius, son, sorority girl, sorority woman, soul mate, stepbrother, stepsister, student nurse, such, suchlike, superioress, surgical nurse, tally, the like of, the likes of, the reverend mother, trained nurse, twin, unc, uncle, uncs, uterine brother, visiting nurse
