A dream about wearing a glove often hints at protection and care. That's the most general analysis.

It may suggest that you are handling a situation or relationship delicately, or that you are trying to shield yourself from a potentially harmful situation. Seeing someone else wearing a glove in your dream could indicate that you feel someone is hiding something or not being completely honest.

It can also symbolize your perception of that person as being cautious or guarded.

A glove can be a rich and colorful dream symbol to interpret with any certainty. To really know confidently, I would have to get more information about the dreamer's life and current circumstances.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming about donning a glove could be a manifestation of your subconscious grappling with the Freudian concept of the "persona" - the mask or role we present to the world to protect our ego.

Also: It may suggest a need to carefully manage your interactions with your environment. Observing another individual wearing a glove in your dream, by contrast, could be an indication of transference, a phenomenon where emotions and desires originally associated with one person are unconsciously redirected to another. It may reflect your own feelings of guardedness or deceit, projected onto this other individual.0

Dreaming about wearing a glove symbolizes the spiritual armor you're putting on to protect your soul from negative energies. It's a sign of your spiritual strength and readiness to handle life's challenges with grace and resilience. When you see someone else wearing a glove in your dream, it signifies your intuitive perception of their spiritual state. It suggests that they may be protecting themselves from spiritual harm or are being cautious in their spiritual journey. This dream is a call to offer them your spiritual support and guidance.
