Dreaming of encountering a hag may be a manifestation of the Jungian archetype of the 'Shadow', the unconscious aspect of the personality which the conscious ego does not identify with.

Also: This could indicate a need for introspection and acceptance of one's darker, repressed aspects. Dreaming of becoming a hag, by contrast, could be an embodiment of the 'Crone' archetype, symbolizing wisdom, maturity, and self-acceptance. This could suggest a transition towards embracing these qualities within oneself. The common themes among these possible variations, therefore, may be an invitation to delve deeper into one's psyche and reconcile with these archetypal figures.0
