To dream that you are looking through advertisements represents a message conveyed to you via your subconscious. You need to act on some problem, decision or opportunity. Consider the content of the ads to determine what area of your life needs to be recognized or acknowledged. If someone you know is advertising themselves, then it suggests that this person can help you in your current situation. You may need to learn to ask for help when you need it.
