Meaning of Handbag / Briefcase / Purse / Wallet Dreams | Dream Interpretation

Dream interpretations were found from 1 different sources.


If you lose any of these in your dream, your unconscious may simply be urging you to be more careful with your finances in waking life. Handbags for women and briefcases for men are highly personal items, carrying everyday and emergency objects, not to mention address books and keys, and if you lose either in a dream it might suggest that you are feeling anxious about your identity in waking life. On the other hand, if you were looking through someone else’s bag, you may be curious to know more about them in waking life. As symbols of femininity, handbags and purses in dreams may also refer to female sexuality.

Money / Handbag / Jewelry / Purse / Wallet

Money, cash or coins in dreams are often thought to be a sign of emotional transactions.

If you give money away, this suggests a generosity of spirit or it might reflect emotional ties that are expected of you at present. Receiving money can suggest the acceptance of emotional support or the emotional needs of the dreamer. Borrowing money can be a warning to hold back as far as financial plans are concerned and to explore all aspects of the deal before going ahead. Making a payment, signing a check or using a credit card are thought to be positive signs that things are going to plan. The notion of saving and investing in dreams may refer to the need to prepare yourself emotionally for situations and relationships that need your attention

A wallet, purse or pocketbook containing personal items may relate to your private world, the kind of person you are and your interests.

If you dream of an expensive designer purse or bag, you may feel a need to have a more glamorous image. A worn purse may symbolize feelings of being worn out and shabby. Do you need to brighten up your identity so that you look and feel brighter? Your dream wallet may symbolize your private thoughts and desires, hidden from public view. Is your wallet full or empty? Are you worried that someone has got too close to you or on the contrary are you seeking greater intimacy? A bag in your dream may symbolically carry your hopes for the future. A heavy bag suggests more projects than you can handle, whilst an empty bag—far from meaning that you have no hope—suggests that you wish to search for new ideas. Frequently associated with fruit, a basket may evoke images of fertility and sexuality. Depending on what is in the basket, it can suggest youthful energy or ripe maturity.

Finally, items of jewelry are symbols of wishes and wish-fulfillment.

If you are given a gift of jewelry in your dream, you may be experiencing a sense of recognition in waking life. Viewing a rare jewel from a distance may be a sign that you have failed to understand the importance or meaning of an event or relationship. Losing a jewel may reflect fears of personal or financial loss in waking life. See also CRYSTALS, GEMSTONES AND ROCKS; MONEY AND SHOPPING.... The Element Encyclopedia

Purse

The purse is a common symbol of female sexuality. It can refer to the genitals of a woman or the uterus. According to Freud, just as purse opens and closes, the woman has the power to give to or refuse others sexually. On the other hand, as the purse usually contains money, it also symbolizes the treasure of your authentic Self.

If you dream that you lose it, you may be suffering the loss of your true identity.

Dreaming of an empty purse indicates a lack of security.

If you dream that you open your wallet and find money inside, you will achieve happiness. The omen is intensified if it is gold. Similarly, it is good luck to find a purse. But if it is others who find it, it is an omen that soon you will receive bad news.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

Purse

This image relates to having access to tools for daily living.

The key to this symbol is in what is carried inside of it. Whether it’s a pocketbook, briefcase, or shoulder bag, the personal carrying case has become a fixture of necessity in our fast-paced world. Purses provide mobile access to important items that may be needed when you are out in the world, such as your wallet, driver’s license, credit cards, and all the things that represent your identity. Hence, there is a strong symbolic association with what might be referred to as tools for life on a day-to-day basis.

A pocketbook, handbag, or purse is generally carried by women and often contains grooming products. This connects it symbolically to the feminine principle.

The items found in a purse will likely be associated with self-care and nurturing.
