A dream about a ring often hints at commitment, fidelity, and eternity. But let's talk about some subtleties in that general interpretation.

It may reflect a desire for stability or a fear of commitment, depending on the dreamer's emotions in the dream.

Alternatively, dreaming about someone else proposing with a ring can symbolize a desire for love, acceptance, or a significant change in your life. It might also represent feelings of insecurity or anxiety about a relationship. The common themes among these variations are deeply connected to personal relationships and emotional states.

A ring can often be a deep and multifaceted dream object to to give you a single meaning for. To really know with any kind of confidence, it would be necessary to understand the dreamer's life and current situation.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of donning a ring may indeed represent a yearning for unity, be it emotional or intellectual.

I'm also thinking generally about a ring: It could also denote a subconscious grappling with the Freudian concept of the "pleasure principle" versus the "reality principle", reflecting an internal struggle between desire and societal norms. Conversely, envisioning a proposal from another could be an expression of the Jungian "anima" or "animus" - the unconscious feminine or masculine side respectively. This dream could be a manifestation of one's longing for integration and balance of these aspects within oneself. The common themes among these potential variations, while seemingly about relationships, may actually be more about the individual's internal dialogue and self-perception.

Dreaming about wearing a ring, in a spiritual context, signifies a divine covenant or promise. It may be a representation of a spiritual commitment you've made or a divine assurance you've received. It could also symbolize a spiritual journey or transformation you're undergoing. Dreaming about someone else proposing with a ring, by contrast, could indicate a divine invitation or call to a higher purpose or destiny. It may also symbolize a spiritual awakening or realization. The common themes among these dream variations, while seemingly about earthly relationships, could be metaphors for your spiritual relationship with the divine or your higher self. They may be guiding you towards spiritual growth, fulfillment, and enlightenment.
