Dreaming of wearing earrings could be a manifestation of the Freudian concept of castration anxiety, where earrings, as a form of body modification, symbolize a fear of loss or change.

This can be a multi-faceted dream symbol though — Alternatively, it may be a representation of the Jungian idea of the Anima, the feminine aspect within the male psyche, suggesting a need for balance or integration of feminine traits. Observing someone else wearing earrings might indicate projection, where you attribute your own feelings or desires onto another. This could be a sign of suppressed emotions or unfulfilled desires. The earrings could also symbolize a fixation on the Oedipal complex, where the other person represents a parental figure and the earrings a symbol of their attention or approval.
