Glove in dream meaning | Dream interpretation
See clothes, gnome See dwarf.
Covering of protection and blessing over the work of one’s hands; research the color
A symbol of security.
If the gloves are brand-new, this symbolizes financial security; if the gloves are long evening-type gloves, or gauntlets, this means security in love matters. Losing gloves indicates temporary setbacks, and dirty or worn-out gloves imply difficulties, but all still imply security in the long run.
Being detached from your actions. Reserve and an often exaggerated need for security. Fear of direct touch and danger of isolation.
A frequent symbol in cases of the irrational fear of AIDS.
Throwing a glove to the ground is an ancient sign of anger and a provocation to fight.
Dreams of a glove represents physical, mental or emotional protection. Your hands symbolize your ability to reach for what you want in life, to have and to hold, and gloves are a way of keeping a distance or softening your approach; like Margaret Thatcher was known for having a steel fist in a velvet glove. You may be keeping yourself at arms length from what you really want or need, either because of formality or a fear of intimacy. See Condom.
Protection, cover. Avoiding contact with others; blocking both sending and receiving physical and emotional energy.
If your dream highlights gloves is there a particular person or situation in waking life you need to handle with extra special care? Or do you need to protect yourself in some way. Are you keeping your hands clean and avoiding dirty business? Freud associated gloves (into which hands are inserted) with sexuality and with birth control. Traditionally, a glove was a symbol of purity in women, and picking up a glove would have the same meaning as picking up a handkerchief dropped by a woman—an invitation to intimacy.
If you take your gloves off in your dream, this may suggest a desire for more honesty in waking life.
If you took your right-hand glove off in order to shake hands with someone, your dream reveals your real feelings for that person.
If you put on a pair of gloves in your dream, could it be that you are worried about revealing your hand? Or is someone in waking life behaving so unpredictably that you feel you have to treat them with kid gloves?
