Ron Weasley: "Well, I dreamed I was playing Quidditch the other night. What d'you reckon that means?"

— Harry and Ron in Divination class 1995.[src]

Dream interpretation is a method of Divination that involves analysing dreams. It is covered at Hogwarts in the fifth year Divination class and was most likely part of O.W.L. teachings. The textbook for this subject was The Dream Oracle by Inigo Imago. Professor Sybill Trelawney considered dream interpretation to be "a most important means of divining the future." However, Harry Potter didn't seem to think it was particularly useful, as he usually made up dreams in the classes and also thought dream interpretation couldn't tell him what his dreams meant. Parvati Patil and Lavender Brown, on the other hand, appeared to consider this particular subject very useful, and were seen discussing their dreams very seriously in the first class they had on this subject. This is not surprising, though, as Divination is their favourite class and they are usually the most diligent students in it.

History

In 1995, Harry and Ron had to keep a dream diary for a month as a part of their Divination homework because neither of them could remember or want to discuss their dreams.
