Should numbers appear in your dreams, first make a note of any personal associations you may have with that particular number, as it may have relevance in your waking world. For example, numbers can represent your age, the number of your house, the number of your children and their birth order. They can also represent time, days, weeks, years and lucky or unlucky numbers.
Your mind may often retain the significance of a number even if you do not consciously remember it yourself. Your memory is a database that stores all kinds of numbers of personal significance: pin numbers, post codes, license plate numbers, as well as dates of birthdays and anniversaries, be they personal or of global significance such as 6 / 6 / 1944 (D-Day) or 9 / 11 / 2001. So when you dream of a number, consider any connections you have with it as its significance in dreamland may not be immediately clear. By bringing a specific number to your attention, your dreaming mind may have been prompting your conscious mind to remember something that happened on that particular date or in the house you lived in that had that particular number; it might, however, have been reminding you to call a friend with that phone number or to remember an appointment on that day.
If you cannot figure out any personal associations, the next step is to see whether you can see symbolic meanings for individual numbers.
If your number has more than one digit, reduce it to single numbers: e.g. 451 = 4 + 5 + 1 = 10 = 1, or 1965 = 1 + 9 + 6 + 5 = 21 = 2 + 1 = 3, and see whether the single number carries any meaning for you according to the symbolic interpretations given in this chapter.
Numbers have some kind of symbolic significance within all cultures, religions and belief systems of the world. Since humans could first count, numbers have had a fascinating, mysterious and even mystical significance. Early man found in numbers realizations of inner qualities, spiritual understanding, unconscious wisdom and even magic. For Freud, numbers reveal their meaning through each individual dreamer’s free association. In myth, legend and fairy tale numbers play an important role and these ancient associations—which Jung called ‘root symbols’—are expressed in dreams. According to Jung, numbers therefore represent ‘archetypal energies of the collective unconscious’ and the various stages of spiritual growth.
Alternatively, the order in which numbers are given in your dream may be significant in terms of helping you to prioritize events or projects in your life. Dream numbers may also suggest time running out, as in ‘your days are numbered’ or the need for you to make a calculated move. Alternatively numbers in dreams may refer simply to multiplicity or size, as in a crowd of events, a big experience, or some kind of realization that has many facets or involves many people.
Also worth noting is the idea that odd numbers are considered to be aggressive, ‘masculine’ active powers, whilst even numbers are considered to be more ‘feminine,’ tranquil and passive. See also LETTERS AND COMMUNICATION; MIND, BODY, SPIRIT; SHAPES; TIME.... The Element Encyclopedia

If you dream that you are acting in a play, these happy times will be interrupted by something annoying.
If you applaud and laugh at a theatre, you will avoid responsibility to chase after your whims.

It is stated in old writings that “he who knows the meaning of the number 13 has the key to power and control”!
Christianity, however, was opposed to any kind of occultism and had a lot to do with giving this number such a bad reputation. They insisted that 13 was an unlucky number because there were 13 people sitting at the table of the Last Supper. This gave rise, for instance, to the belief that when 13 people sat at a table, one of them would die in the same year. And to this day, there are hotels where no room is numbered 13. Theaters in Italy don’t have a seat numbered 13. But this suspicion is rare in the rest of the world.
It is only prevalent in places where the Christian Church is very influential.
Cheiro, in The Book of Numbers, wrote:
In the Indian pantheon there are 13 Buddhas.
The mystical discs which surmount Indian and Chinese pagodas are 13 in number. Enshrined in the Temple of Atsusa, in Japan, is a sacred sword with 13 objects of mystery forming its hilt. Turning westward, 13 was the sacred number of the Mexicans. They had 13 snake gods.
The original states that formed the American Union were 13; its motto, E Pluribus Unum, has 13 letters, the American eagle has 13 feathers in each wing, and when George Washington raised the Republican standard he was saluted with 13 guns.
The sum of the number 13 is 4 (1+3=4), the number of “radicals,” because Four-people often feel misunderstood and unconsciously invite secret envy and enemies. They are not inclined to recognize authorities who act as if the power is theirs alone and often misuse it. Challenging conventional standards, laws, and the powerful—and speaking out—has never been popular with the general public, least of all with the ruling authorities.
The number 13 is Four on a higher level and has thereby more gravity, increasing the intensity of any revolutionary conviction even more—including the struggle to bring about social reform and justice.
13 is a symbol of your whole person and your entire life. Don’t let others drive you crazy—13 is not an unlucky number! On the contrary, it seeks to “revolutionize” in the sense of reforming a world that is in dire need of it.... Dreamers Dictionary
The pea associated with pee or urine, and the pod with a seed carrier, the testicles. Freud gives the example of a patient who dreamt he was kissed by his uncle in an ‘auto’.
The patient immediately gave his own association as auto-eroticism.
A psychologist whose patient dreamt she was going on a trip on a boat called Ncwland, correctly inferred that the patient was getting better, because the name suggested new territory traversed. One woman dreamt about a busy intersection, and realised it was referring to inter-sex-on.
So we need to consider how unconsciously we might be playing with words, then check if this helps us gain insight. Also, phrases are used in the same way. We might see such words as ‘1 felt a prick’, keeping it up was difficult’, ‘dead end’ and so on, in writing down our dream. See names of people; introduction to colours. ...
