1. If the dreamer is a woman, dreaming of a witch could represent her own senex, or that part of her psyche that is older and wiser. Thus any message that she receives from the witch is important, and should be written down immediately upon awakening.
2. If the dreamer is a man, he needs to take a good, long, honest look at his attitude toward women. He may be caught up in the notion that all women are out to get him.
3. If the witch is friendly in the dream, whether the dreamer is a man or a woman, it augurs an increased social life.
4. If the witch is the ominous Halloween figure, rough times in romance lie ahead.
1. Dreams of writing letters can mean the need to get in touch with people whom you haven't spoken with in awhile.

3. To dream of writing and not knowing what you're writing is a warning that you may be inadvertently communicating messages to others that they are misinterpreting in an insulting way.
1. If the dreamer is shouting to someone, it represents a desperate need to reach that person. If the "someone" is unknown to the dreamer, the dreamer needs to seek information from someone as yet unknown - as phoning up a librarian to find out if the library has a certain book.
2. If someone is shouting at the dreamer, if the dreamer knows that person, then he has been shutting out vital communications from that person. If the shouter is unknown to the dreamer, then there is information that the dreamer needs to seek out.

1. If the animals were happy, then dreaming of a zoo portends travels in distant places. If children were with you, whatever you want to accomplish in those places will be successful.
2. If the animals were upset or agitated, then your view of the world is a bit jaded right now. You're viewing the world as a crazy, violent place, where no one is safe - as in the metaphor, "this place is a zoo."
