A dream about wearing a cap often symbolizes a desire for protection or concealment. That's the simplest answer.

It may indicate that you're trying to shield yourself from certain situations or hide aspects of your personality. On the other hand, seeing someone else wearing a cap could suggest that you perceive them as hiding something or not being completely transparent.

It can also represent authority or expertise, depending on the type of cap and the context in which it is worn.

A cap is a very very deep dream concept to make any kind of definitive analysis about. To really know for certain, I'd want to get an understanding of the dreamer's life and current circumstances.

Dreaming of donning a cap may signify a Freudian defense mechanism, perhaps repression or denial, indicating an attempt to cover or protect one's thoughts or ideas.

The dream-symbol can have many permutations however. It could also symbolize a desire to assume a different role or identity, akin to the 'persona' in Jungian psychology. Observing another wearing a cap in a dream, however, might suggest projection, where one attributes their own concealed aspects onto another. It could also denote a recognition of authority or expertise, reflecting the 'super-ego' or societal expectations. The type of cap and the dream's context would further refine this interpretation.

Dreaming about wearing a cap can be a spiritual symbol of wisdom and knowledge. It may suggest that you are seeking divine guidance or protection in your waking life. This dream could also be a sign that you are ready to take on a new role or responsibility, indicating personal growth and spiritual maturity. Seeing someone else wearing a cap in your dream, on the other hand, could mean that you recognize the wisdom or authority in another person. It may also suggest that you are projecting your own desires for spiritual growth and guidance onto someone else. The type of cap and the context in which it is worn can provide further insights into these spiritual interpretations.
