Wealth and status usually go naturally together, so often when we are having problems in dealing with our own status in life we will have dreams about wealth.
It can also often indicate the resources that we have or that we can use from other people. We have the ability to draw on our experiences or feelings and to achieve a great deal within the framework of our lives. Our savings may represent resources, either material or emotional, that we have hidden away until such times as they are needed.
They can also represent our sense of security and independence.
To dream of savings we did not know we had would suggest that we are able to summon up extra energy or time, perhaps by using material or information from the past.
