Dream about being a cult leader points at your need to feel protected and safe from life's problems. You just want time alone with your thoughts or ideas. There is a lack of excitement and energy in your life. This dream points at your childish or babyish attitudes/actions. You are unsure of your direction in life.
Being a cult leader dream is sadly a warning alert for issues that you are keeping to yourself instead of confronting. You are too mechanical - going about your way without much thought and making decisions without thinking it through. You have been oblivious to something that everyone else had already realized or notice. This dream is an omen for future disappointments. You may be too controlling of your emotions instead of expressing them.
If you dreamt about being a cult leader:
Much as you like to have advance warning of these kinds of things, there is no way you are going to get that kind of privilege. You will be thrown straight into the deep end, and will have to learn how to swim immediately.
