What kind of shoes appeared in the dream? If they were hiking boots, perhaps you long to travel and explore? If your dream shoes were shoddy, are you feeling down-trodden in waking life? If you were walking over someone in your dream, especially if you were wearing heavy clogs, is this literally true in waking life? Whose feelings are you treading on with your heavy feet? Shoes often represent your chosen way of life in dreams or the character traits developed to deal with life.
If the shoes belong to a particular role or activity, for example ballet shoes for dancers or nurses’ shoes for those in the caring professions, this may indicate a need for the qualities of that role or activity.
More generally, shoes and garters in dreams have also traditionally represented sexuality.
If you are changing boots or shoes, has there been a recent change in circumstances as in ‘the boot is on the other foot’? If you are taking off your shoes in the dream, it might suggest that you are leaving your past behind and feel open to change.
If your shoes are painful because they pinch and rub, is your freedom of movement being restricted in the waking world? Or have you been feeling a financial pinch recently? If you are wearing someone else’s shoes, your unconscious may have been urging you not to judge someone so quickly, because if you walked in their shoes you would understand how hard it is for them to make progress.
If you are walking without shoes, you may be going through a rough patch or you may simply feel like letting go of your everyday responsibilities. And because of the association between shoes, shopping and sex, dreams about shoes may also simply be erotic wish- fulfillment fantasies. In ancient dream lore, lacing up shoes in a dream was a well-known symbol of death, as were shoes on a table.
Socks in dreams often represent the cleanness or untidiness of a person, and therefore depict some kind of judgment about what sort of person they are or, if the socks are yours, how you see yourself. Socks can also be associated with warmth and protection, or with certain roles such as those that football, tennis or hiking socks represent; expressions such as ‘pull your socks up’ or ‘knocked my socks off’ suggest a motivating or powerful experience.
If the socks are full of holes in your dream, this may suggest that you feel demoralized in some way. If, however, you were waving a sock to someone, were you warning them, as might be suggested by the phrase ‘sock it to them’, or were you trying to get them to impress you, as might be suggested by ‘sock it to me’?...

Example: ‘I was working in quite a large garden by my house.
A pan of the garden was like a little alcove by other buildings.
The garden was kidney shaped. I had dug this small plot and was considering how I might relax and sunbathe there. My daughter said I should have worked harder on it—dug it better. I felt intense emotions of resentment and anger at her criticism. I staned telling her what a bad time I had in the past. How difficult it was even to work, let alone work hard’ (Beatrice G). This shows the garden as depicting what one has ‘worked on’ or produced in life. This could mean externally, or one’s own nature.
The daughter is Beatrice’s own self criticism, which pushes her on, though she has a tendency to want to relax ‘in the sun*. This aspect of garden suggests how ‘fruitful’ one’s life has been socially and spiritually.

If you were planting flowers in rows in a garden or see formally arranged flowers in a flower bed, this could be suggesting that your life is a little too organized and lacking in spontaneity. Although it could also indicate that your personal life needs putting in order, in general flowers appearing in a dream garden suggest that your life lacks vibrancy and you are too preoccupied with the practical business of earning a living.
A dream of an inviting, flower-filled garden scene may be encouraging your waking self to relax.
If you dreamed that you were lounging lazily in a garden surrounded by flower-filled borders, your unconscious may have been mirroring your sense of satisfaction with your waking life but also may have been encouraging you to take the time to enjoy life’s simple pleasures.
If the flowers in the garden are dead, wilting or attacked by a worm or grub, this conveys a message of regret and danger.
If flowers are strewn across your garden, your house or even yourself, this suggests that your life contains a great deal of pleasure and fulfillment.
If you were watering or feeding the flowers in the garden or anywhere else in your dream, this suggests that you need to work on a relationship. Did you dream that your garden suddenly became parched and you were rushing to find water to feed the flowers? If this was the case, perhaps a dream like this is implying that you need to pay more attention to those around you, as your close personal relationships— symbolized by the drought-stricken flowers—are in urgent need of nourishment and rejuvenation.

The Sphinx of Greek myth, a creature with a woman’s head and a man’s body, killed anyone who failed to answer her riddle; her appearance in your dream may represent a problem or challenge that is baffling you. (If you remember Oedipus’s solution, could it hold the key to your problem?) On the other hand, for most people a dream of the Sphinx will represent Egypt and all the mystery conjured up by that country.
If you dreamed of a serpent-like multi-headed hydra that instantly grew two or more heads whenever one was hacked off, could your unconscious have portrayed your sense of struggling to take one step forward, only to find you have moved two steps back; or did it symbolize the drastic multiplication of problems in waking life?
