A dream about your knee often hints at a need for support or flexibility in your life. But the interpretation can be more multifaceted than that.

It may suggest that you're feeling vulnerable or unsteady in a situation. If you dream about someone else's knee, it might indicate your perception of that person's ability to stand up for themselves or their adaptability. In both cases, knees in dreams often reflect our ability to progress and move forward in life.

Your knee is often a complex and intriguing dream concept to offer a firm opinion about. To know confidently, I would have to get an understanding of the dreamer's past and mindset.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of one's knee, in Freudian terms, might represent an internal struggle with authority or submission, given the knee's symbolic association with kneeling or genuflection.

Dream concepts like your knee can be multilayered, however. It could also signify a fear of being crippled or incapacitated, reflecting anxieties about losing autonomy or control. To have dreamed of another's knee, by contrast, might suggest a projection of these fears onto another, or perhaps an unconscious recognition of their vulnerability or subservience. In both instances, the knee serves as a potent symbol of our capacity for self-determination and our anxieties about surrendering it.

It may also reflect your perception of their spiritual strength or vulnerability. In Both of these dreams, the knee in dreams serves as a symbol of spiritual resilience and the ability to kneel in prayer or submission to a higher power, indicating a deep spiritual connection and progress on your spiritual path.
