The word witch is usually used to describe a mean and heartless person, and in your dream you may be making associations in regard to yourself or someone else that fits that description.
A witch could also represent power, magic, and goodness. “White magic” is as popular and culturally significant as darker witchcraft. However, whether good or evil, the witch always tries to defy natural law and uses a short cut to accomplish a task. Ask yourself questions about the general message in the dream; is it about revealing negative characteristics or about solving your problems and getting what you want out of life by using shortcuts? The most positive connotation of this dream could be that it encourages you to solve difficulties by using creativity and intuition and brings you closer to finding powerful and magical parts of yourself....

The witch is almost always a symbol of the power of the unconscious—Magic.

(1) A witch may be an internal source of wisdom, healing and growth.
(2) Alternatively, a witch may be a destructive unconscious force: for example, a repressed part of yourself. In a man’s dream a witch may symbolize the negative aspect of his anıma (on anim a, see Brother / Sister, section (4)-(6)). Do you suffer from moodiness and a conviction that nothing can ever come right for you? This may be because you feel in some way let down by your mother. The character of a man’s anima is as a rule shaped by his mother5 (M.-L. von Franz, in Man and His Symbols) (on ‘femme fatale’, see Woman).

The witch is a creature of relatively modern invention with little, if any, presence in the older mythologies that have shaped Western culture. Today, the witch figures prominently in contemporary fairy tale folklore and is a staple character of Halloween.
The witch no longer heals and ministers to people—now she casts evil spells and eats children. Since this is an archetype, how the witch appears in your dream is important to your understanding of your own personal development.
The areas of life ruled by this archetype are mysticism, healing, and magic, primarily in the feminine principle, which relates to creativity, receptivity, nurturance, and caretaking. Examine your witch for character, skill, and motivation. Her character will inform you of the level of good versus evil within your psyche.
The power of her skills will inform you of your personal access to the magic in the universe. Understanding what inspires her will get you in touch with your own movement toward integration and away from manipulation. Any number of haglike female characters could be considered the witch archetype. Some may in fact be evil, while others may be disenfranchised healers. Given the witch’s origins in mysticism and the history of misunderstandings over the centuries, it is important to consider this duality when interpreting this symbol. Though she may inspire fear and dread, the witch has powerful magic that, if understood and properly used, can be invaluable to the human experience.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

Whenever magic features in a dream, it suggests that you are using your energy to accomplish something but are not controlling that energy and using it effectively. It does, however, indicate that you are capable of controlling a situation that you are in and making things happen. Psychologically, when magic appears in a dream, it links in with your deepest powers. These can be powers of self-control or sexuality, or power over your surroundings.
If your dream features the occult and you have little or no knowledge of the subject, this usually suggests a need to come to terms with your hidden fears.
If you think of the occult in the negative sense, as in Satanism or black magic, the dream may have a negative significance or link in with the egotistical side of your nature. But if you think of the occult in more positive terms, as in Wicca and shamanism, the dream may have a positive spin or link in with the giving, nature-loving side of your character.
If you do possess occult knowledge, your dreaming mind may be urging you to apply that awareness and sense of the mystery and wonder of life to your everyday situation. The rule for both should always be, ‘do no harm or harm no one’. Finally, due to its complex and mysterious nature in dreams, the occult may be alerting you to your hidden potential.
