A dream about wearing a skirt could symbolize embracing femininity, regardless of your gender. But the specific meaning of a skirt in a dream obviously depends on your present circumstances.

It may also represent freedom, fluidity, or non-conformity, as skirts aren't restricted to one gender or culture. Seeing someone else in a skirt could indicate your perception of their characteristics associated with skirts, such as femininity, freedom, or non-conformity. It could also reflect your feelings towards that person. Both scenarios suggest an exploration of identity, gender roles, and societal norms.

A skirt can be a rich and colorful dream concept to offer a firm opinion about. To say without any doubts, it would be necessary to understand the dreamer's life and circumstances.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of oneself wearing a skirt, in Freudian terms, could be an expression of the Anima - the unconscious feminine side in a male.

Likewise — It may suggest a need for balance between masculine and feminine traits within oneself. Seeing another in a skirt could be a projection of your own Anima onto that person, or it may represent your perception of their femininity or non-conformity. Both scenarios could be seen as a manifestation of the struggle between the Ego and the Id, where societal norms (Superego) are being challenged. This could indicate a process of self-discovery and acceptance, or a questioning of societal gender roles.

Dreaming of wearing a skirt may symbolize a spiritual journey towards embracing your inner divine feminine, regardless of your physical gender. It could be a call to connect with qualities like intuition, nurturing, and creativity. Seeing someone else in a skirt might be a spiritual mirror, reflecting your own journey or highlighting these qualities in others. Both scenarios could signify a spiritual awakening, where you're being guided to transcend societal norms and embrace the balance of masculine and feminine energies within you. This balance is key to spiritual growth and self-realization.
