Emotionally there may be something that worries you, something that you “can’t stand” or that you want to “get out of your body”. However, it all depends on how they manifest or the rest of the elements that we will analyze below.

Dreaming of women’s legs

The meaning of dreams with women’s legs represents the untamed and sexual side of yourself. According to Sigmund Freud, a man who dreams girl’s legs fears castration, as a symbol of loss of sexual confidence. If a woman dreams of her own legs, it may show a desire to play the role of a man. That is, to have a more powerful job or to be more assertive.

So your subconscious needs you to work on those details, so you can feel good about yourself.

Either because we feel bad about ourselves or because we are afraid of certain events that may lie in wait for us.

Similarly, dream interpretation of dreams with legs can be a symbol of rejection to receive new vitality. You need to open yourself to life and new experiences.

The Hidden Meanings of Your Dreams:

Physical Physical
You’re looking at how steadfast you are, how you take a stand, step or move forward, and support yourself by making money. You’re examining your pace, how fast or slowly you’re moving ahead.
Emotional Emotional
A broken, injured, weak, or deformed leg suggests you’re hesitating (or preparing) to take initiative, you feel emotionally vulnerable, or you are stubbornly refusing to change. You lack balance, autonomy, or independence, and rely on various crutches to get by.
Spiritual Spiritual
Focusing on someone else’s legs means you want to adopt their successful ideas and methods. If one leg is shorter than the other, you’re emphasizing one idea at the expense of others. (see feet)
In the Egyptian system of hieroglyphs, the figure of a leg is symbolic of erecting, lifting and founding. The symbolic significance is related to that of the foot, and both symbols emphasize the fundamental difference, from the merely biological point of view, of the human form as compared with other animals, in that humans stand erect. The leg is also equivalent to the pedestal, and in Cabbalistic thought it denotes qualities of firmness and splendour.

To “get a leg up” on issues and conditions may symbolize that the dreamer has regained the confidence to stand up and take control again. Legs also signify movement, especially running.

Legs represent movement. In another, more metaphysical plane, they are also related to the ability to recover from misfortune. Legs symbolize, equally, the support of the body, that is, of your life: plans, goals, projects, etc.

If in the dream you see yourself without your lower extremities, it is a sign that you have little confidence in your possibilities when it comes time to take on any venture. On the contrary, to see yourself with strong legs denotes confidence in yourself.

According to the traditional interpretation, if in the dream you have a wooden leg, it predicts new concerns. Fortunately, this dream is very uncommon.

A dream concerning any injury, deformity, swelling, bruising, or blemish of the legs signifies financial difficulties the degree of which will be in ratio to the seriousness of the leg troubles. A dream of skinny legs is a warning of embarrassment due to an ill-advised romance, but a dream of beautiful legs forecasts a happy change of circumstances.

The legs primarily function for standing and walking. In this way, they are symbolically linked to all the ways in which you must stand up for yourself, take a stand on something, or stand up for the rights of others. In terms of the mobility function, legs are linked to how you are moving about in your life, your power and efficacy in how you are walking your talk. Consider what is happening with your legs or the legs of a person within your dream and apply the qualities being exhibited to these principal ideas.

A broken leg is an indication of something that is inhibiting your powerful movement through life that will eventually heal. Legs that are too weak to support you indicate a moment when you are unable to give yourself the foundation you need.
