Vision: Seeing a person with a large mouth is an admonition: don’t “talk so big” or so much! The dream also is a reminder that it is in silence that we discover our innate abilities. See Lisp.

Depth Psychology: The mouth is one the most important human “tools,” used for eating (taking in something new and sensuous) and also for spitting out, getting rid of something “indigestible” or bad.

The mouth is for speaking (communicating with others, making contact, expressing feelings), but also is for kissing (sexual/sensual needs). What did your mouth “do” in the dream?

Islamic Dream Interpretation | Ibn Seerin


Contact and communication, erotic kissing and relationships.

According to Freud and Jung, it represents the female sexual organ.

Little Giant Encyclopedia | Klaus Vollmar


To see a closed mouth in your dream, signifies your need to express yourself or talk about an issue that’s bothering you. But to dream of an open mouth is a straightforward warning that you tend to use your mouth too much - try to listen more and talk less.

An open mouth with teeth showing indicates a false friend - be on guard.

If you dream that someone is covering your mouth so you can’t talk, this indicates your inability to persuade others into your mode of thinking. It may also suggest that you gossip too much.

To dream of your own Mouth means a hint to guard your tongue.

Dreams of a mouth symbolize expression and that you have something to say.

A mouth can also represent physical and emotional hunger; perhaps you have been starving for affection. Your mouth is an avenue of communication, expression, passion, kissing, pleasure and manifestation. Consider what it is you are hungry for.

An open mouth represents receptivity or a desire to express.

A closed mouth represents secrecy or a fear of expression and exposure. See Throat, Teeth and Lips.

Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary | Pamela Ball


The mouth is related to the ability to communicate with others, but also with the ability to breathe, to eat, to drink, and to kiss—in other words, to establish any external relationship. When you speak, you have the power to either be affectionate or aggressive toward the interlocutor with your words. Therefore, perhaps the dream is reminding you that you should not have said something or you need to express certain feelings verbally. Similarly, if you dream that you wash your face or brush your teeth, it means that your words do not match your true feelings.

If the mouth is fleshy it will indicate a repressed desire to maintain an emotional relationship. On the contrary, to shut up and to utter no word at all when someone speaks reflects a refusal to communicate and a profound rejection of that person. According to Freud, besides a sex symbol, the mouth represents an immature childish fixation on verbal assault.

Dreaming of a big mouth portends wealth; of a small one, poverty. To see someone with a twisted or deformed mouth portends a family dispute.

The Big Dictionary of Dreams | Martha Clarke


Expressing yourself or your opinions.

Need, want, or lack.

The Curious Dreamer’s Dream Dictionary | Nancy Wagaman


Verbalization, communication; express yourself. Also, a big mouth, a gossip; monitor what you say about others. Source for nurturing and sustenance.

The Dream Books Symbols | Betty Bethards


To dream of being unable to open the mouth, danger of death (Gypsy). A dream due to physical conditions.

The Fabric of Dream | Katherine Taylor Craig


Matters of communication and self-expression.

If you dream of being gagged, for example, this represents either swallowing your words, or having your speech repressed by societal or situational standards.

An overexaggerated mouth can reveal a propensity to gossip or to dominate a

conversation with your own ideas.

Freudian: An alternative vaginal emblem.

With an extended tongue, the mouth becomes an emblem for gender unification, and therefore potent speech that affects all who listen.

It is only in recent years that this symbolism transposed into an insult. Depending on the remainder of the dream, this might reflect the need to watch your words, being certain they carry the intended meaning for the most powerful impact on the listener.

A mouth with a forked tongue represents lies, and purposeful misrepresentations with an aim of personal gain or profit.

Expansions Dream Dictionary

Mouth / Jaw / Lips / Tongue

The mouth represents the devouring, demanding aspects of yourself; it can also signify your need to communicate about something that is upsetting you.

If the mouth is open, this may represent your receptive side, as in mouth-watering. On the other hand, perhaps too much has been said and it is time to close your mouth—in other words shut up. A dream of your mouth being buttoned or sewed up can again suggest regret over what has been said or done.

If you dream that you are chewing, it might suggest that you are mulling over, or considering, something.

If you are pulling something out of your mouth, perhaps you need to clear the air by expressing your feelings, or do you have a nasty taste in the mouth?

To see your own tongue in your dream signifies self-expression. Have you said too much or do you need to say more? If you rip someone’s tongue out in a dream, this means that you are extremely upset by what someone has said in waking life but have been unable to express your anger. To dream of your own jaw in your dream represents your stubbornness, determination and forcefulness.

If your jaws are tight, this could suggest unexpressed anger and other powerful feelings that you are holding back.

If lips appear in your dream, this is associated with sensuality, sex, love and romance, as well as communication, as in ‘read my lips’.... mouth / jaw / lips / tongue dream meaning
