The Dream Book of Self-Knowledge


  • leather clothing: intensifies the negative nature, especially in emphasizing sexuality, is incompatible with the emotional and particularly with the spiritual level of experience, which is why it is only typical of instinctual personifications.
  • leather handcuffs: if they restrict the dreamer, then his emotional experiences are restricted by sexual desire; this can also relate to past lives since this symbol is at present completely disappearing from people's subconscious (for more on the phenomenon of past lives see the Past and Future Visions archetype); see Shackles.
  • leather (leatherette) furniture, wall covered with leather (leatherette): the dreamer can expect increasing material wealth, though this often entails deprivation on the emotional level (leather intensifies the given meaning and leatherette reduces it).
