What does lips mean in dreams?

1. The traditional interpretation

A dream about lips generally symbolizes communication and expression. But let's talk about some subtleties in that general interpretation.

It may suggest a need for you to express your feelings more openly or a desire to be heard. If the lips are sealed or tight, it could indicate a reluctance to communicate or a secret you're holding. A dream about kissing someone's lips, on the other hand, often represents passion, desire, or a longing for intimacy. It could also symbolize a strong bond or connection with that person. If the kiss is with a stranger, it might suggest self-discovery or a journey towards self-love.

Lips is colorful and puzzling dream symbol to analyze. To say with any kind of confidence, I'd need to get an understanding of the dreamer's past and mindset.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of lips, in the Freudian perspective, may be a manifestation of latent desires for verbal expression, a yearning for the articulation of repressed emotions.

We can take this reasoning to another level: Lips sealed or tight could symbolize the ego's defense mechanisms, inhibiting the id's primal urges from surfacing. On the other hand, dreaming of kissing someone's lips can be seen as a projection of the libido, Freud's term for sexual energy or desire. It may signify a subconscious yearning for intimacy or a symbolic consummation of a deep-seated bond. If the object of the kiss is unknown, it could represent the process of integrating the shadow, a Jungian term for the unconscious aspects of the personality, into the conscious self.0

Dreaming of lips can be a spiritual signal of your inner voice yearning to be heard. It may symbolize a divine call to express your truth and spiritual wisdom. If the lips are sealed, it could represent a spiritual test, urging you to find the courage to break your silence. Dreaming of kissing someone's lips, however, can be a divine message of love and unity. It may symbolize a spiritual connection or a soulful bond with the person you are kissing. If the person is a stranger, it could indicate a spiritual journey towards self-love and acceptance, or a call to embrace the unknown aspects of your spiritual self.
