A zipper is a very common dream symbol with a very standard interpretation across dream experts. In most cases, a zipper in a dream is a symbol of intimacy, as it is usually used to open and close articles of closing.

So a zipper in a dream means your sexual and romantic life has the potential to get a lot better.

But why then is such a small detail being manifested in such a big way in your dream? What are the issues with this particular intimate experience that you need to explore or look at in closer detail?

Seeing A Zipper in A Dream

While the zipper represents intimacy, we all know that what the zipper reveals is so much more interesting. Seeing a zipper in a dream could suggest that you have intimacy issues, or are not being real enough in your intimate encounters.

Alternatively, it could suggest that you are being extremely open, perhaps even too much so.

Be sure you are getting the proper balance of giving and receiving in your intimate experiences when you see a zipper appear in your dream.

Dreaming About Zipping or Unzipping A Zipper

When we dream about the act of zipping or unzipping they act like two sides of the same coin.

If you are zipping something up, this suggests that you are closing yourself off in sexual and romantic relationships. This dream suggests that you should work at opening yourself up emotionally to those who love and care about you.

If you are unzipping something, this indicates that you are starting to open up or are already open to someone. Don’t worry, this is a positive thing. If you are hesitant in this act, the same energy is probably reflected in the waking world. This dream is telling you to proceed with this connection and vulnerability.

You may want to pay close attention to what the zipper you are interacting with is attached to. This can also lead us down a road of deep inspection.

For example, if the zipper is on a pair of jeans you would want to check out the meaning of that symbol as well.

If a person is wearing the item you are unzipping, this ties directly back to the sexual or romantic nature of the dream regarding this person.

Dreaming of A Broken or Stuck Zipper

If the zipper is stuck, you may be experiencing some blocks in your emotional or intimate affairs and will need to examine root issues more closely.

You’re feeling disappointed or that you are not being accepted as yourself, which can lead to you attempting to zip yourself and build walls around yourself. This dream indicates that you need to dig deeper into your relationship in order to identify issues.

Remember, you can’t unblock a zipper until you look at all the angles and discover what is keeping it stuck. Open communication and honesty are important in this case.

A broken zipper indicates that a relationship is over and that the connection is gone. You can’t open yourself up to someone when the zipper is broken. This dream can be solemn but comforting, it is a sign of moving on.
