Healing (e.g., the “laying on of hands”). In many cultures, hands are a predominant tool as a healer’s conduit for divine energy.

A token of friendship, especially if extended toward you.

Good intentions. In some tribal societies, people greeted each other with upheld hands to indicate the lack of -weapons and a mutual wish for peaceful discourse.

Help or service (e.g., “many hands make light work” or “lend a helping hand”).

Surrender. Two hands held high in the air indicate giving yourself over to some authority figure or letter of the law.

Tied: A situation over which you have no direct influence or control (see Knots, Ties / Tying).

Clenched hands reveal a lot of tension and anxiety- present in the dreamer.

Upturned hands are a sign that some comprehension is lacking. Alternatively, you are constantly asking for help, like a beggar, but not necessarily helping yourself.

Missing: To dream of not having any hands means that you probably feel helpless or ineffective in your current situation. You need to find an alternative tool or approach that’s productive.

The palm of the hand represents life’s road map—the directions one has taken or is soon to take (note that the divinatory art of palmistry is based on the secrets that lie literally in the palm of your hand).

Callused or chapped hands equate to hard work that has questionable rewards.... The Language of Dreams

It is worn when we wish to present a specific image of ourselves to others, or as a recognition of a societal expectation (see Clothes).

WEB (NET)

(See Knots, Rope, Spider, Spinning)

In the immortal words of Shakespeare, “Oh, what a tangled web we weave.” This dream may represent the web of deception or some other trap of which you need to be aware.

The web of life that interconnects all things, from the smallest grain at sand to the stars. In this case, your subconscious is trying to remind you of your importance in this scheme, and how your life touches everything directly or indirectly.

Attachments and associations. Nets participated in ancient Russian “wedding ceremonies to indicate the unity of the couple and ensure fertility (“a teeming catch”).

Being caught in a net can be an alternative type of cage dream, with slightly looser constraints indicated (rope is easier to get out of than steel). Alternatively, in China this is a symbol of protection. Pregnant women were sometimes surrounded by fishing nets to safeguard die baby from any evil influences.... The Language of Dreams

KNOT

Vision: Looking at a string with many knots: your situation is all “tangled up.” Undoing the knots in a string: it will take a lot of effort to straighten out a difficult matter, making it possible for a long-held wish to be realized. See String.

Depth Psychology: Depending on other actions in the dream, the knot symbolizes the problems and complicated relationships you have with other people—problems that need to be solved or quickly untangled. Simply “cut through” the knot if it won’t give or appears too daunting. Looking at loose knots in a dream: the relationships you have with certain people need more attention.... Dreamers Dictionary

HAIR

To dream of hair covering your face suggests an emotional anxiety in the company of others and particularly in intimate relationships. Looking out from behind a veil of hair in a dream shows that you may be keeping your true feelings hidden as you have a deep fear of rejection in close relationships.

To dream of hair falling out indicates extreme fears may be running unchecked in your emotional body. There is a strong message here to examine your inner world before stress manifests itself from uneasiness.

If the loss of hair in a dream is random and in clumps, a fear of death is lurking and needs to be addressed so as to improve your general demeanor.

Dreaming of watching someone else lose their hair may be a reminder to forgive a member of your immediate family and attempt to build bridges instead of waiting for the other party to make the first move.

To dream of waking up covered in hair suggests a need to come to terms with your body and begin to appreciate all it does for you. This is a message of self-love and that you can find the courage needed to make an all important connection with yourself.

Dreaming of hair in your mouth implies confusion related to responsibility.

It is possible that you may be abdicating responsibility, but more likely you are receiving mixed messages and consequently taking on responsibility that doesn’t belong to you. Seeing hair before you in a dream indicates an embarrassing moment best forgotten. Noticing hair in your food suggests you may have been dwelling on a humiliating moment from your past. This is something that cannot be changed and needs to be released.

To dream of hair tied in a sleek knot is an indication of special person in your waking life.

The knot is to remind you of the special gift you have received through having known that person.

Dreaming of hair in tangles or messy knots implies a messy waking life that needs some tidying up. Tangled hair is a reminder to examine your life for opportunities to simplify and organize. Braided hair in your dream is the unconscious recognition of childlike innocence and successful organization skills.

A rational mind and a playful heart may be the ticket to great success for you at this time.

To dream of a radical hairstyle change, indicates a potential holiday or change of scene in coming days. Some time away may broaden your perspective on a current idea and bring about an exciting outcome. Cutting somebody’s hair in a dream suggests a wish for control in a relationship, quite likely with a work colleague.

If your hair is being cut in a dream it is possible that you believe an idea of yours has been stolen and resentment is consequently building within you.

To be styling, combing or grooming your own hair or a loved one’s hair, implies special care is being given or needs to be given to an important undertaking in your waking life. Smelling hair in a dream is a message of secrets.

To be enjoying the aroma of hair may mean exciting and happy secrets that you will derive pleasure from.

To be dreaming of foul-smelling hair implies secrets you would rather not hear and that you are not obligated to keep.

It is also a subtle reminder to refuse to keep secrets when you know it is not healthy for you to do so.... Dream Symbols and Analysis

BOY

Seeing a boy in a dream means that you are happy and alive, with many possibilities and the desire to create.

It is a way of preparing the ground for future changes in your personality. However, it may also indicate a desire to return to the basics and discover your true personality. Moreover, dreaming that you return to childhood reflects a need for love and protection. It can reveal, therefore, certain immaturity to life. In this sense, according to Carl Jung, dreaming of children is a metaphor for the things of childhood that we have forgotten. Maybe the dream image is warning you that you should learn to play again or have a more innocent attitude. (See GAME, YOUTH, and BIRTH)

In history and mythology, divine children often appear, who eventually become heroes or wise men. This is the case of Hercules, who strangles two serpents when he is very small; or Jesus, who then becomes Christ who saves humanity. These children symbolize the true Self of man: vulnerable, but with a great capacity for transformation. In the dream, perhaps this relates to our spiritual potential.

Bracelet See RING

Braid Equal to knots, braids symbolize intimate relations and mutual dependency. For this reason, dreaming that you have long braids could announce that you will soon be implicated in a confusing situation.

It is probable that it will be due to your behavior, which foments discord between the people in your environment.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

KNOT

Knots in a dream means you are subjected to some form of tether, i.e., any impairment that is delaying or limiting your projects. You are tied to the circumstances, prisoners of the environment. You feel coerced and lack enthusiasm, which limits your creativity. According to other interpretations, the knots represent the problems we are trying to solve. Furthermore, they can also symbolize the union of two people or the feminine and masculine aspects of our personality.

The popular superstition has always associated knots with problems. For example, at a wedding, the bride should wear a shoe lace loose to scare off witches who want to “untie” her virginity. Similarly, in Scotland, it is believed that the body of a deceased person may not be placed in the coffin if there are any lumps in their clothes. This would prevent their spirit from resting in peace. In oneiric terms, this dream portends that you will run into issues that will trigger anxiety.

To help the knight into the saddle is a promise of happiness. But if he is getting off the horse it predicts you will lose a friend. The medieval knight is a symbol of love affairs.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

KNOT

If you dreamed of a knot or tying a knot and are aware of the practice of tying a knot so you don’t forget to do something, your dream may have been reminding you to carry out some important task in your waking life. Alternatively, tying the knot is a symbol of marriage or entering into a relationship.

If you find yourself unable to untangle a dream knot in a string, cable, cord, elastic or shoelace, was your unconscious telling you that you are tying yourself in knots or that you are responsible for the current muddle in your waking life? If you dreamed of knots that you find impossible to untie, such as the string on a parcel or entwined fishing nets, this may have represented a knotty or complicated problem that is holding you back in waking life. Your dream may tell you whether or not these problems will defeat you or whether you will solve them.

If you lose your patience in your dream, the dream may in fact be urging you to have more patience. Mystery packages, parcels and containers that you cannot open in your dreams may also highlight aspects of your personality that you are denying; the appearance of the dream package may give you a clue about its nature. For example, if it was gift-wrapped, this may suggest a gift or talent you have repressed. A dream treasure chest that you cannot open may also suggest potential emotional riches lying just within.

CIRCLE

According to Jungian theory, the circle is the perfect expression of infinity, continuity and connection; the circle represents the ideal self, within which the psyche’s various opposing elements have achieved perfect balance. It has no beginning and no end, with no turns or corners in between. This perfect geometric shape symbolizes the center and perfection of the self in all its wholeness. It is a concept inherent in the Eastern yin-yang symbol, in which the white active masculine yang principle is united in symmetrical equality with the black yin force of passiveness and femininity.

If you find yourself in the middle of a circle in your dream, it can represent your self or your spirit. Alternatively, the middle may also indicate conflict between opposites or the feeling of being involved, protected or in the middle of something. For Freud, the circle represented the vagina; for Jung, it was an archetypal symbol of the whole psyche, as opposed to the body, which was symbolized by the square. When someone has made the transition through all aspects of life and has returned to their beginning, we say that they have come ’full circle’. Family groups are referred to as the ’family circle’, whilst social groups are sometimes called a ’circle of friends’ or a ’community circle’. When the apparent solution to a problem in a series of events creates a new problem and increases the difficulty of solving the original problem, it may be called a ’vicious circle’ or ’vicious cycle’.

To determine the meaning of your dream circle, round, sphere or ball, look at the symbols and events connected with it, as there is a wealth of often conflicting possible interpretations to consider. For example, if you are traveling round in a circle, you may be progressing toward wholeness or running around uselessly chasing your tail! If the circle is smooth, it suggests harmony and centeredness; but if it is irregular, it may suggest the dull round of routine.

Jewelry is given in many cultures to express emotion and rings, bracelets and necklaces are usually circular. In many societies, marriage and lifelong commitment are symbolized by exchanging rings. Did someone you desire give you a ring in your dream? Perhaps there’s a chance for the relationship, or maybe it is just wishful thinking.

If you dream of a broken necklace or bracelet, you may fear that a relationship will break and come to an abrupt end; you may, however, feel that it is time for a connection to come to a conclusion.

Circles also contain and restrict. For instance, a new pupil is outside the group until she settles in and is accepted at her new school; dog collars allow an animal to be restrained. In some pagan traditions, a circle of intent is cast to contain positive energy and protect against negative energy. Was your dream circle keeping something out or keeping you in? You may feel a need for protection, or you may feel trapped by a relationship or situation. Knots begin with circles and usually contain several. Perhaps something is knotted up? As well as suggesting the potential for unity, wholeness and perfection, circles also represent eternity or the cycle of life because they have no beginning or end, as well as security and protection because they enclose. The fact that the sun is circular means that if it appears in your dream, it may be signaling masculine, active energy or even the life force itself. Don’t forget, though, that circles also possess feminine connotations due to their resemblance to eggs.

With so many possible interpretations, it can often be difficult to decide what a dream circle may have been suggesting but considering the context of your dream, along with your waking circumstances, should help you with the interpretation. Bear in mind that it is always worth considering whether the appearance of circles was telling you to work on harmonizing conflicting elements of your inner self in order to achieve contentment and serenity. For example, if you dreamed of dropping a round plate and it smashed, your dream may have been portraying your rebellious nature and your need to exercise greater self control.

In dreams, round balls tend to represent the interaction between two people, as in ’throwing the ball’ or ’the ball is in your court’. They may also be a symbol of your need to get someone’s attention. Ball games suggest challenge and competition in the game of life, but may also be associated with aggression or sex, as in a man’s balls. As the center of a circle is the point from which everything starts, if you dreamed of a target enclosed in a circle, was your unconscious telling you to aim for psychic wholeness? A circle with a dot in the center can signify balance and centeredness. It can also represent woman. A sphere shares much of the symbolism of a circle, and indicates perfection and completion of all possibilities; it can, however, also evoke a spherical object such as a breast or testicle, and therefore have a sexual association....
