The hood or cone-shaped hat often figures in ancient and mediaeval iconography. It is to be related with the Phrygian cap and other similar forms of headgear which are to be seen in Greek and Roman art.

It seems that the hood unites and blends together the two separate meanings of the cape and the hat; in addition, its shape and its colour contribute further to the symbolism as a whole. In Jung’s view, the hood, since it envelopes practically the whole of the head and is almost spherical in shape, comes to symbolize the highest sphere, that is, the celestial world (represented symbolically by the bell, the vault, the upper part of the sand-bag and the double-pumpkin, as well as by the skull). Furthermore, covering one’s head signifies invisibility, that is, death.
The veil has the same significance among nuns’.

    Since a hood is worn on the head, the first element of how to interpret it as a symbol connects to thoughts and mentality, either your own if you are wearing an outfit that includes a hood, or a part of you as represented by someone in your dream.

    A hood is ultimately about hiding something, so you might want to consider what thoughts or ideas you are trying to keep hidden or secret. There can be some menace associated with hoods, between historical references to hooded people engaging in secret acts of mystery or violence to the modern-day association of the hoodie and criminal behavior.
