Dreaming of kissing a stranger, in Freudian terms, may represent the id's desire for novel experiences or the ego's attempt to integrate unacknowledged aspects of the self.

Somewhat similarly: It's a manifestation of the unconscious mind exploring the unfamiliar, possibly hinting at latent aspects of one's personality. Observing another kiss a stranger, on the other hand, could symbolize the super-ego's moralistic view of societal norms or a projection of one's own suppressed desires. It might also reflect feelings of alienation or a voyeuristic curiosity about the unfamiliar. Both scenarios underscore the psyche's continuous negotiation between the known and the unknown, the self and the other.

Dreaming of kissing a stranger signifies a spiritual journey towards self-realization and acceptance of the unknown. It's a divine nudge to embrace new experiences and facets of your being. Witnessing someone else kiss a stranger, however, symbolizes your spiritual self observing others' experiences as a means to understand your own emotions and desires. It could also indicate a sense of spiritual exclusion or longing. Both scenarios are a reflection of your soul's quest to understand personal boundaries, relationships, and the balance between the familiar and the unfamiliar. They serve as a reminder that we are all interconnected in this cosmic dance of life, each learning and growing through our unique experiences.
