Clothes – Copper Dream Symbols & Meanings
(see Apron, Closet, Costume, Hat, Jewelry, Mask, Shoes, Tie, Veil)
How do the clothes feel? Are they itchy or uncomfortable? If so, this reveals discomfort with yourself or a situation in which you’ve been placed.
Old or tattered clothing indicates self-neglect or feelings of inferiority.
Changing clothes: A transition in status, jobs, relationships, and the like.
A statement of individuality and how you see yourself (e.g., “clothes make the man”).
Rejecting or throwing away out-of-date clothing: New enterprises, loves, characteristics. Forsaking outmoded ways of thinking and living.
Each color of clothing has different oracular value. Yellow indicates financial progress, blue portends success from tenacious efforts, red reveals a timely deliverance from a difficult situation, green is prosperity and happiness, and mixed hues foretell swift changes.
Each item of clothing also has slightly different meaning, much of which is dependent on your perception. For example, a businessman dreaming about tying his tie again and again might interpret this as too much attention to his appearance at work instead of the work quality. Dreaming of tightening your belt probably relates to financial struggles.
Dirty clothing sometimes represents the soiling of someone’s virtues.
Cross-dressing represents a figurative “trying on” of masculine or feminine attributes that you wish to develop. This can also reveal a greater balance of the Yin-Yang energies within you (see Hermaphrodite, Homosexuality).
