What does it mean when you dream about a pocket?

A pocket can be a symbol of female sexuality. In a dream, a pocket might contain our possessions or, alternatively, things that we hide or keep secret. A dream about pockets might also be alluding to the meaning of certain idioms, such as someone “lining their own pockets,” “burning a hole in one’s pocket,” “deep pockets,” or “to be in someone’s pocket.”.

From a Freudian point of view, pockets may symbolize the female reproductive organs. However, for many people this dream may have an entirely different meaning. The pockets in your dreams could represent those things that you keep just for yourself: your memory, your secrecy, your valuable possessions, or your inner resources. If you were hiding your hands in the pockets, it suggests that you may feel a degree of helplessness or guilt in regard to some situation in daily life.
