Dreaming of handwriting, from a Freudian perspective, is a manifestation of the ego's attempt to assert control over the id's chaotic impulses.

Getting a bit more complex: If you're the one writing, it signifies your conscious effort to articulate your subconscious desires. The legibility of the handwriting is a reflection of your success in this endeavor. Neat handwriting denotes effective communication between the conscious and unconscious mind, while messy handwriting indicates a struggle. On the other hand, seeing someone else's handwriting in your dream is a projection of your superego, representing societal norms and expectations. If the handwriting is legible, it suggests that you understand and accept these societal norms. If it's illegible, it may signify a conflict or resistance against these norms.0
