An altar could suggest acknowledgement, adoration, or exaltation for the most religious people. Altars also predict forthcoming weddings, although if they are ruined it is a reflection of grief and loss of moral values. From a religious standpoint the altar has different meanings. It is a place of sacrifice, so this dream could refer to a sacrifice you need to make or something that you have sacrificed for a good cause. It is not always related to something material. Sometimes it is necessary to sacrifice your own ego and to express your own real feelings some more. An altar is also a symbol of a marriage between the conscious and the unconscious. The union of this opposing elements favors the creation of a unique and strong personality. Dreaming that you are in a church is a bad omen because it represents mistakes and signs of repentment. If there is a priest by the altar, it warns against disputes and domestic or professional problems. However, if you look at this church from the outside, blessing and fortune are coming soon.
