A noose in a dream suggests that we have a fear of being trapped, perhaps by others’ actions. We are also aware that we can create a trap for ourselves, thereby ‘putting a noose round our own necks’.

Traditionally, a drawing of a hangman’s noose was a threat of death and it can still have that association in dreams.

As always, this ‘death’ may be of part of our personality being unduly restrained.

For a young woman wishing to leave home, a noose might represent a fear of becoming trapped in the parental home.
