Meaning of Dreams: Words beginning with B
Feelings of your family in general and your relationship with your brother in your waking life will have the biggest impact on what this dream actually means. In many cases, seeing your brother in a dream represents the memories and feelings that you have for your brother and how you may have felt about yourself or your family when you were at their age, but this is more common in a man’s dream than a woman’s. This can also symbolize parts of your own personality that you see reflected in the way that your brother acts.

Seeing a younger brother in a dream can represent the parts of your personality that may seem more energetic or rebellious.

Seeing an older brother, no matter your gender, represents feelings of strength and authority.
Mood of the Dream
If your brother is having a good time in your dream, then this can predict that good things will come your way and show that you are generally happy with your current family situation.
