Although there is a good deal of difference of opinion concerning the meaning of onions in a dream, the consensus among authoritative sources is that to see onions forecasts a season of ups and downs. To eat onions augurs an unexpected increase in material wealth, possibly through a legacy or a lucky gamble, and to peel them prophecies family trouble, especially if your eyes watered. To cook them portends the estrangement of an important friend, and to serve onions warns against too much emphasis on trivial pleasures.
