To dream that you lead something shows that you are taking control of certain facets of your life. For example, if you walk a dog in the dream, it may be a reference to your sexual nature. If you are led by someone, you must ask yourself what psychological principles you are following, and if they are leading down a good path. The dream could represent your desires. In this sense, Eastern tradition says that a person controlled by his anxieties will never be happy. This saying comes from those who know how to direct themselves and limit their ambitions.
