(Retreat; Sanctuary) A hermitage in a dream represents a spiritual retreat, abstinence, good character, seclusion, ascetic detachment, controlling one’s desires and wants, divorcing one’s wife, abandoning one’s friends, or it could mean an illness.

If a sick person sees himself in a hermitage in a dream, it may mean his death, or it could mean suppressing one’s sexual desires. Occupying a hermitage or building one in a dream means rising in station.

A beautiful and a newly built hermitage in the dream represents a wife.

A hermitage in a dream also could mean migration, bewilderment, severing a friendship, hiding, power, or it could represent one’s son. Whatever may affect a hermitage in the dream also could manifest in the life of one’s son.
