Thread is a vivid image in dreams and in spiritual work. We have the thread of life spun for us by the fates who determine the life and death of all mortal beings; klotho spins the thread; her sister lachesis determines the length of it and atropos cuts the thread when the proper time has come for death.
The various threads of our spirituality are being interwoven into the tapestry of life.
Psychological / emotional perspective: To be aware of thread is to be aware of the way our lives are going.
A tangled thread suggests a difficulty that needs unravelling.
A spool of thread suggests an ordered existence; the colour of the thread is also important.
The image of tapestry or weaving suggests a degree of competence and creativity.
The relevance of the ‘picture’ we produce may well represent emotional concerns.
Material aspects: Thread in dreams represents a line of thought or enquiry and, in today’s way of communicating, a blog. In terms of our ordinary everyday lives we perhaps need to remain focused on our goals. Threading a needle has an obvious sexual reference. It can also, because of the perceived difficulty in threading a needle, suggest incompetence in ways other than sexual, such as hitting work targets.
Gives gender - specific: In a woman’s dream a basket full of spools suggests the various aspects of her personality. This is because of its association with the archetypal feminine.
For a man, such an image may represent his attitude to the complexity of the feminine. You might also like to consult the entries for colour, needle, sew, tangled and weaving.
Vision: Winding a thread into a ball: you’ll need a lot of patience before you reach your goal. Unraveling a thread: with patience you will uncover a secret.
A black thread: unpleasantness and frustration.
A white thread: closer contact with some people.
A red thread: you are constandy repeating something—find out what it is. Seeing a long thread: something is being dragged out endlessly.
Depth Psychology: The thread is a sign of nervous tension or emotional weakness, and also of shyness and insecurity. Have you lost the thread in a certain matter? Or is it a momentary lack of concentration? Do you have a bad habit that is a thread running through your life? See also the chapter “Color in Dreams.”
Holding a thread in one’s hand in a dream means looking for an alibi or a proof to support one’s argument and win a case.
