A dream about a horseshoe symbolizes good luck and fortune. But as you know, a dream seldom has such a simple interpretation.

It's a traditional symbol of protection, warding off evil, and securing blessings. If you're using a horseshoe in your dream, it suggests you're actively seeking these positive outcomes. Finding a horseshoe indicates unexpected luck or discovery of personal strength. It's a reminder to trust in your abilities and the universe's plan for you.

A horseshoe can be a somewhat rich and colorful dream object to interpret with any certainty. To really say without any doubts, I would need to get an understanding of the dreamer's past and current circumstances.

Dreaming of a horseshoe, in the Freudian context, may represent an unconscious desire for security and protection, possibly stemming from unresolved Oedipal conflicts.

Likewise — The horseshoe, a symbol of good fortune, could signify a latent wish for success, reflecting the ego's struggle for self-actualization. If one is using a horseshoe, it might suggest an active engagement with these unconscious desires, a manifestation of the pleasure principle. Finding a horseshoe, on the other hand, could indicate a sudden realization of one's inherent capabilities, a nod to the process of individuation. It's a symbolic nudge from the unconscious, urging the dreamer to trust in their inner resources and the unfolding of their personal narrative.0
