Alternatively, their appearance could indicate a life chapter ending for you. Dreams of a living parent's death can signal shifts in your waking relationship with them, while dreaming of a child's death might suggest it's time to mature. If you dream about faking your death, it could mean a longing for a fresh start. When it's your partner faking their death, this could reveal new insights into their character.
