(See Socks).

To dream of si!k stockings bodes no good to either man or maid.

It is an indication of coming pleasures through dissolute companionship with members of the opposite sex.

If a woman finds a hole in her stocking she should think twice before throwing herself too heartily into a love affair that may leave an unforgettable impression upon her.

Cotton stockings seen in a dream are a forerunner oi some untoward event that wfll seem to prove the reality of life.

Net stockings are a precursor of the revelation of some secret that you would wish to keep hidden.

Wool stockings presage a message from someone of the opposite sex who wishes you well. Half-length stockings (See Socks).

The Complete Dream Book | Gillian Holloway

A symbol of erotic seduction. The context of the dream will clearly indicate its meaning. Stockings are a sign of prejudice and financial loss. To put them on reinforces this forecast of loss; to remove them, however, denotes luck. Holey socks reveal vain hopes and mismanagement at home. Silk stockings announce luxury that is fleeting, as well as losses; cotton, modest wellbeing. To see stockings hung up expresses a false appearance of wealth; to wash them promises profits.

The Big Dictionary of Dreams | Martha Clarke

To dream of stockings, denotes that you will derive pleasure from dissolute companionship.

For a young woman to see her stockings ragged, or worn, foretells that she will be guilty of unwise, if not immoral conduct.

To dream that she puts on fancy stockings, she will be fond of the attention of men, and she should be careful to whom she shows preference.

If white ones appear to be on her feet, she is threatened with woeful disappointment or illness. See Knitting.

Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation | Gustavus Hindman Miller

Because stockings are worn on your legs, dreams of wearing stockings signify that you are gathering your strength and support as you prepare to take a stand for yourself and move forward in life.

If you dream of fancy or sexy stockings, then you have a desire for attention and validation of your sexiness and feminine appeal.

If you dream of stockings that are hung by a chimney, then this represents receptivity, deservability, and the expectation of gifts, blessings and good tidings to come.

Strangest Dream Explanations | Dream Explanations - Anonymous

To see them on : light colour, sorrow; dark, pleasure; a hole in one, you will lose something; woollen, affluence; silk, hardships.

Mystic Dream Book | Internet Archive - Anonymous

To wear stockings (pantyhose) in your dream, represents your sense of understanding. You are well-grounded and have the support of those around you.

To see someone else putting on stockings, relates to some romantic situation - you may be jealous of someone or worry about getting/keeping somebody’s interest in you.

My Dream Interpretation | myjellybean

A protective covering for one’s personal ability to progress; see “legs”

Dream Dictionary Unlimited | Margaret Hamilton

Though stockings are a little out of fashion at the moment, their primary purpose is to give the illusion of beauty and glamour to a woman’s legs. In this way, they also have a measure of eroticism associated with them.

The legs do the walking, so consider how you are walking the walk in your life when stockings are featured in a dream.

The context of the dream will offer distinctions for your interpretation.

STOCKING

(Sock) In a dream, stockings represent wealth and prevention, as long as they are not worn. Once seen worn in a dream, they mean business losses.

If one’s mother is alive, it means that he will migrate with her to another country, or it could mean that she will be deprived of her son.

If the socks are new and have a clean smell in the dream, it means that one regularly pays his due alms, that he is praised for his character and that his money will grow in a lawful way.

If his socks are old or emit bad odors in the dream, it means that he withholds paying the obligatory alms tax, that he is uncharitable, worthy of blame and that his wealth will quickly disappear.... Islamic Dream Interpretation

MIRROR

Concern over one’s image’ or how others feel about one; self examination, self love, negative only if the love is not shared with others; anxiety about changing or ageing.

Example: ‘Getting ready for a wedding in an upstairs room, feeling a bit unsure of what to wear. I look in a mirror and see I have on stockings and suspender belt with a very shon frilly petticoat. It looks very sexy. I am aware that the door is open and have an urge to close it, but then feel OK about looking sexy and people seeing me’ (Nora). Nora is looking at how she may appear to others if she allows her natural feelings to show.

Also self awareness in the sense of insight into behaviour or character traits; the mirror is similar to water and can de­pict looking into the unconscious to see who one is. Change face in mirror, multiple selves: becoming aware of aspects of one’s character which are usually unknown or not accepted. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

PRECOGNITION

As a pan of the human survival ability, the capacity to predict the future is a well-developed everyday pan of life—so much so we often fail to notice it. When crossing a road we quickly take in factors related to sounds, car speeds and our own physical condition, and predict the likelihood of being able to cross the road without injury. Based on informa­tion gathered, often unconsciously, we also attempt to assess or predict the outcome of relationships, job interviews, busi­ness ventures, and any course of action imponant to us.

If detailed observations were made of the habits of ten people, one could predict fairly accurately what they would be doing for the next week, perhaps even pinpointing the time and place.

For instance some would never visit a pub, while others would be frequently there.

Because the unconscious is the storehouse of millions of bits of observed information, and because it has a well-devel­oped function enabling us to scan information and predict from it, some dreams forecast the future. Such predictions may occur more frequently in a dream rather than as waking insight, because few people can put aside their likes and dis­likes, prejudices and hopes sufficiently to allow such informa­tion into the consciousness. While asleep some of these barri­ers drop and allow information to be presented.

Ed Butler’s dream is about his work scene. Each detail was real and horrifying. Shonly afterwards, Rita was burnt just as in the dream. Example: ‘I was stanled by the muffled but unmistakable sound of a nearby explosion. While unex­pected, it wasn’t entirely unusual—the high energy propel- lants and oxidisers being synthesised and tested in the chem­istry wing were hazardously unstable. When I heard the screams I froze for an instant, recognising that they could only be coming from Rita, the one woman chemist in the all male department. I rushed to the doorway of her laboratory. Peer­ing through the smoke and fumes I saw a foot sticking out of the surrounding flames. I was only in my shirt sleeves, unpro­tected, not even wearing my lab coat, but I had to go into the flames. I grabbed Rita by the foot and noticed with horror that her stockings were melting from the heat. I pulled her back into the doorway and tugged at a chain which released gallons of water on her flaming body. When satisfied the fire was quenched, even though my own clothes still smouldered, I ran for the emergency phone’ (from Dream Network Bulletin, June 1985).

Some precognitive dreams appear to go beyond this ability to predict from information already held. So far there is no theory which is commonly accepted which explains this.

A not too bizarre one, however, is thai our unconscious has access to a collective mind. With so much more information available, it can transcend the usual limitations when predict­ing from personal information.

The next examples are all from Shirley G. Because of space, only three of the dreams are quoted. Nevertheless, they are typical of dreams which do not seem to fall into the category of precognitive dreams arising from unconscious scanning or information already known. Example: ‘1 set out to dream the winner of a horse race each day for a week. I was driving down a country road and sud­denly saw a glimpse of Emmerdale Farm down a side road. Following day: chosen horse Emmerdale Farm came in first. 2 Was working in a room when a man popped his head around the door and shouted excitedly “John, John, your uncle’s here” and disappeared. I carried on working. Chosen horse: Uncle John. Came in first. 3 Was walking down a road, called into a house by a friend to have a chat. On the way out she opened the door and I saw a completely empty room except for a huge black fireplace. Door closed and I left the house. Chosen horse Black Fire—which I insisted would only be placed due to a fireplace. Came in 2nd.* See ESP in dreams. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

NIGHT

According to the Greeks, the night was the mother of the gods because they believed that the darkness preceded the formation of all things. As a result, like water, the night also has a meaning of fertility, of seed. In our culture, tradition has linked night with the unconscious. Moreover, it is also often linked to the color black, death, ignorance, evil, and despair. To dream about it thus portends misleading, artificial, unclear, and sordid situations, especially as related to economic and sentimental matters. As with death, the night may say that something is coming to an end, or that some limitations will emerge that you should follow.

An old superstition says that you can avoid nightmares by hanging your

stockings or socks on the edge of the bed. According to gypsy tradition, unless the sky is starry, night dream announces despair.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

MONTHS OF THE YEAR

When dreaming about a particular month, a dreamer should explore some of the outside influences that could have triggered such a dream choice. Upcoming birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, festivities such as Easter or Christmas or special events could be the cause of dreaming about a particular month, as well as other dates that hold a special significance. But there may also be additional reasons why a certain month may appear in a dream.

January

  • The name given to the month of January is derived from the ancient Roman god Janus who presided over the gate to the New Year. Janus protected the Gate of Heaven and was known as the ‘Lord of Beginnings’; he is often symbolized by an image of a face that is simultaneously looking forwards and backwards. This symbolism can easily be associated with the month, as for many the start of a new year suggests out with the old and in with the new. It is the time when many reflect on events of the previous year and make resolutions to redress or improve some aspect of daily life or personal philosophy. As part of the astrological calendar, this is the month of the Zodiac signs of Capricorn (22 December-19 January) and Aquarius (20 January-18 February) and shares their symbolic associations.

February

  • A dream centered on the month of February could signify testing situations that will demand all of your resources, as well as self- discipline and possibly even health concerns. The name ‘February’ is believed to have been derived from the name ‘Februa’, taken from the Roman ‘Festival of Purification’. The root ‘februo’ means ‘I purify by sacrifice.’ Valentine’s Day dreams stand for the celebration of those you care about and may occur if you are not expressing your feelings sufficiently. This is the month of the Zodiac signs of Aquarius (20 January-18 February) and Pisces (19 February-20 March) and shares their symbolic associations.

March

  • Mars was the Roman god of war, and fertility was the inspiration for the name ‘March’, so dreams in which March is the focus may concern conflict or the need to initiate plans or steps towards a desired goal. It is the month of the Zodiac signs of Pisces (19 February-20 March) and Aries (21 March-19 April) and shares their symbolic associations.
  • March is a time of spirituality and the influence of the feminine aspects of nature within all faiths. At the same time, the Zodiac sign of Aries brings the power of the masculine, the sun, the seed, and also the determination and strength to succeed.

April

  • This is the month of the Zodiac signs of Aries (21 March-19 April) and Taurus (20 April-20 May) and shares their symbolic associations.
  • Dreams featuring the month of April may suggest happiness, pleasure and the need to begin working towards your desired goal in life. To dream of April Fool’s Day reveals something foolish done by yourself or someone you know. Images of Easter signify triumph over problems in your waking life. Easter baskets, eggs and bunnies signify optimism and hope for a positive outcome to events.

May

  • This is the month of the Zodiac signs of Taurus (20 April-20 May) and Gemini (21 May-21 June) and shares their symbolic associations.
  • Dreams featuring the month of May tend to signify prosperity, as well as upcoming waves of rejoicing or pleasure and happiness.

June

  • According to the Celtic calendar, this is a time associated with natural healing of the body and of the spirit. When a dream focuses on the month of June, this suggests a time of positive renewal or the desire to begin afresh in some way. This is the month of Zodiac signs of Gemini (21 May-21 June) and Cancer (22 June-22 July) and shares their symbolic associations.

July

  • July is most commonly associated with the healing properties and sanctity of water. This may be due to the fact that July is a month of warmth, of the sun, of scorching heat and the dryness of the land that comes with the dreaded drought. This is the month of Zodiac signs of Cancer (22 June-22 July) and Leo (23 July-23 August) and shares their associations. In dreams, it suggests a time for self-examination and reflection.

August

  • August has historically been considered to be a lucky month and the ideal time to repair mistakes made in the past. This is the month of the Zodiac signs of Leo (23 July-23 August) and Virgo (24 August-22 September) and shares their symbolic associations.

September

  • This is the month of Zodiac signs of Virgo (24 August-22 September) and Libra (23 September-23 October) and shares their symbolic associations. In dreams, September represents a waning period or a winding down.

October

  • At this time of year, perhaps more than any other, according to the Celtic and pagan calendar, the natural and the supernatural were greatly enhanced, with many rituals taking place such as All Hallow’s Eve or Hallowe’en (31 October) This is the month of the Zodiac signs of Libra (24 September-23 October) and Scorpio (24 October-21 November) and shares their symbolic associations. In dreams, October represents a time to unite conflicting aspects within yourself or to reaffirm personal bonds. To dream of harvest festivals suggests the fruits of shared gifts and the inner joy when you reach out to help others.

November

  • This is the month of the Zodiac signs of Scorpio (24 October-21 November) and Sagittarius (22 November-21 December) and shares their symbolic associations. In dreams, November suggests a time to count your blessings, discard the negative and appreciate the positive elements in your life.

December

  • In Celtic traditions, December was a time to keep light alive in the darkness, to maintain the burning fires and was a time for families to reunite as the light began to return following the winter solstice. This is the month of the Zodiac signs of Sagittarius (22 November-21 December) and Capricorn (22 December-19 January) and shares their symbolic associations. In dreams, this month stands for a period or rest, renewal and reflection. Images of Christmas in dreams, including Christmas cards, lights, gifts, trees, ornaments, puddings and stockings, stand for a major spiritual awakening and growth, or the sharing of spiritual gifts and joy.
