A dream about smoking a cigar often hints at power, prestige, and luxury, reflecting your desire for a more affluent lifestyle or recognition. That's the most general analysis.

It can also represent a need for relaxation and taking time for yourself. Seeing someone else smoke a cigar in a dream, however, may indicate feelings of envy or admiration towards that person's status or achievements.

Alternatively, it could suggest that you're feeling excluded from their success or lifestyle. Both of these dreams highlight a focus on social status and personal ambition in your waking life.

A cigar can be a somewhat deep and multifaceted dream experience to to give you a single, definitive meaning for. To say for sure, I'd have to get to know the dreamer's life story and current situation.

In the Freudian context, a cigar is often seen as a phallic symbol, representing masculine energy or dominance.

Some additional thoughts on this: Dreaming of smoking a cigar could indicate a desire for control or assertion of power. It may also suggest a need for self-affirmation, particularly in areas where you feel your authority is being challenged. Witnessing someone else smoke a cigar, by contrast, could signify feelings of inferiority or intimidation. It may also denote a sense of detachment or alienation from the person smoking, perhaps reflecting a perceived power imbalance in your waking life. These interpretations, however, are not absolute and should be contextualized within the individual's personal experiences and emotions.0

Dreaming of smoking a cigar can be a spiritual symbol of self-empowerment and inner strength. It may reflect your spiritual journey towards self-awareness and self-acceptance, suggesting you are embracing your own power and authority. Alternatively, seeing someone else smoke a cigar in your dream may be a representation of a spiritual guide or mentor in your life. This person may be someone who possesses wisdom and knowledge that you admire and seek to learn from. It could also indicate feelings of spiritual inadequacy, suggesting a need for personal growth and development. Both of these dreams emphasize the importance of personal power and spiritual growth in your waking life.
