A dream about wearing a cardigan can symbolize a need for comfort and security. It's often not quite so simple though.

It may suggest that you are seeking warmth and protection in your waking life. On the other hand, seeing someone else in a cardigan can represent your perception of that person as nurturing and trustworthy. It could also indicate that you are recognizing these qualities within yourself. Both scenarios suggest a desire for emotional warmth and reassurance.

A cardigan can be a very deep dream object to to give you a single, definitive meaning for. To really say for sure, I'd want to get an understanding of the dreamer's life and current environment.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of donning a cardigan may indeed symbolize a yearning for solace and safety, but it can also represent a Freudian regression to a more juvenile state, a longing for the maternal embrace.

Taking that analysis a bit deeper... The cardigan, a symbol of domesticity and comfort, may embody the nurturing aspect of the mother figure. Conversely, observing another in a cardigan could be a projection of your own need for security, or a transference of your own nurturing qualities onto another. It may also hint at an unconscious recognition of the other's vulnerability. Both instances reflect a deep-seated desire for emotional security and a return to the comfort of the womb, a common Freudian interpretation.

Dreaming of wearing a cardigan signifies your spiritual need for warmth and protection, a divine embrace enveloping you in times of emotional vulnerability. It's a call to nurture your inner self, to seek solace in the spiritual realm. Seeing someone else in a cardigan, however, mirrors your spiritual perception of them as a beacon of comfort and trust, or perhaps a reflection of your own nurturing spirit. It may also symbolize your spiritual recognition of their need for divine protection. Both scenarios are spiritual reminders of our inherent need for emotional warmth, divine reassurance, and the spiritual journey towards self-nurturing and protection.
