Psychological / emotional perspective: From an emotional perspective a hinge signifies our primary emotions upon which everything hang.
A broken hinge in dreams suggests that we are quite literally ‘unhinged’ – not able to function properly emotionally.
Material aspects: In some ways a hinge has the same significance on a practical level as a hook. In dreams if a hinge is prominent we probably need to look at what the transition stages are between tasks. Too small a hinge on a door, for instance, suggests that planning is defective.
A large or ornate hinge would suggest that the actual transition itself is an integral part of the process.
Gives gender - specific: In both men’s and women’s dreams a hinge can represent a relationship with the opposite sex.
The left hand side may represent the feminine and the right the masculine.
To dream of a rusty hinge predicts difficulties in family or personal affairs.
A squeaky hinge signifies that you will have to combat some malicious gossip.
Dreams of a hinge represent that you have a decision to make that hinges upon a particular issue. Pay attention to the signs that come to you in your waking life and in your dreamtime as to whether or not to keep the door of opportunity opened or closed, to say yes or no.
