To dream of your hands represent your relationships with those around you and how you connect with the world. Hands serve as a form of communication and can represent authority, hate, protection, justice, etc depending on the gesture. Perhaps you need to lend a helping hand to someone. If someone else is giving you a helping hand, then it implies your need for help. Do not be afraid to ask for assistance or to depend on others from time to time. Moreover, the left hand symbolises your graciousness and your feminine, receptive qualities, while the right hand symbolises the masculine and active attributes. The right hand may also be a pun for some decision or something being “right”. If you dream that your hands are detached or see disembodied hands, then it indicates that you are not getting your point of view across. You are not being understood or someone is not understanding you. The dream may also symbolise feelings of loneliness. If you see disembodied baby hands in your dream, then it points to your maternal eagerness or your desires to feel needed.

To dream that you are holding hands with someone represent love, affection and your connection with that person. Your dream may also reflect anxieties about losing touch with her/him or that you are drifting apart. To dream that your hands are clasped or closed signify unity, completeness, acceptance or agreement. On a more negative note, it may suggest that you are close-minded, ungiving or unwilling to help.

To dream that your hands are hairy or rough imply your lack of gentleness in dealing with others. You may be too brash and abrasive. To dream that your hands are itchy indicate issues with money. If the left hand is itchy, then it signifies money being received. If the right hand or both hands are itchy, then it signify money being given or lost.

To dream that you are washing your hands represent a worrisome issue that you need to work through. Alternatively, it suggests that you are in denial or no longer taking responsibility of some matter. You are letting go and getting things out of your system.
