A dream about wearing sunglasses suggests a desire for privacy or anonymity. But keep in mind that sunglasses can be a somewhat nuanced dream-concept.

You may be trying to shield yourself from certain situations or emotions.

It can also indicate a need to protect your vision or perspective on something. Seeing someone else wearing sunglasses in a dream can symbolize your perception of that person as mysterious or elusive. It might also suggest that you feel they're hiding something from you. Both scenarios reflect a sense of concealment and protection.

Dreaming about donning sunglasses may signify an unconscious yearning for emotional seclusion or a Freudian defense mechanism, a psychological strategy to avoid confronting uncomfortable truths.

This can be a complex dream concept. It could also represent a protective stance towards your own viewpoints or perspectives, a metaphorical safeguarding of your 'vision'. Observing another individual wearing sunglasses in your dream may be indicative of your perception of their enigmatic persona or a projection of your own anxieties about hidden agendas. Both instances are suggestive of a latent need for concealment and safeguarding, a manifestation of the ego's protective instincts.
