K – Knots Dream Symbols & Meanings
Dreams about keys can include the following symbolic meanings:
Solutions to problems, especially ones that seem puzzling (e.g., “the key to the matter”).
Lost keys: Losing your way, or feeling unable to find the right resolution to a situation.
Using the wrong key in a dream signifies approaching a problem in the wrong way, with a solution that doesn’t really fit the situation.
Breaking a key means that a good idea got bungled somehow, probably by someone becoming too enthusiastic or pushy. If this is the case, just start again with a calmer, paced approach.

Bodily fluids have long been considered very magical, including saliva. Consequently, kisses appear in a diversity of fairy tales and myths. For example, Snow White receives a kiss of resurrection and love. In Christian tradition, there is the kiss of peace. Today, bad behavior or ill-conceived actions are called the “kiss of death” for in-progress proposals or projects. How to interpret the kiss in your dream, therefore, will depend much upon the setting in which it’s received, and from whom.
