Dream meaning of garland

To see a garland in your dream represents wholeness and completeness.
To dream that you are wearing a garland suggests a bond.

It has been said that everything in the universe is linked as in a garland; the observation may serve as a pointer to the actual symbolic significance of the garland. It is related to the grotesque, to the rosette, to string and all other tokens of bonds or connexion. The uses to which the garland has been put provide us with further definitions of its symbolism.

The ancients would hang them at the entrance to their temples on feast-days, as a symbol of fellowship; and they used also to crown their captives with them. Here, as also in the case of the crowns worn by the guests at Egyptian, Greek and Roman banquets, it is the symbolism of the flower which prevails (signifying ephemeral beauty and the dualism or life and death).

To wear a garland of flowers in your dream predicts that you will turn defeat into victory by “thinking” your way out of a difficult situation. To receive a garland signifies progress toward your goal, but to give a garland is a warning against unscrupulous friends or associates.
