It is a sign of passivity, conformity, and lack of initiative. We tend to delegate responsibilities that affect us to others in order to avoid commitments. Or, we give only what is expected of us. Dreaming of this situation (although it is presented metaphorically) indicates that your attitude, deep down, is unsatisfactory. On the other hand, the sheep also means purity and innocence, two positive attributes. However, it may also represent ignorance and blindness. In the event that a shepherd appears, the dream may refer to the power of love to unify divergent forces. To see many sheep is a sign of calamity; but if they belong to you it promises great riches. A white sheep is a good omen; a black sheep, a bad one.
