To dream that someone embraces you can indicate a need for affection and understanding. If the hug is pleasant, it means you must express your feelings to somebody. If the hug comes from your father, it signifies that you accept yourself just as you are and have achieved the recognition you wanted. Conversely, if you seek the embrace, it generally means you are in want of love and protection. For that matter, a mother or grandmother is more likely to be the ones present on the oneiric images. Dreams that portray hugs do not always have a positive reading. So, if an unpleasant feeling goes along with them it could suggest insecurity or lack of sincerity towards the person with whom you share your body. It is important to keep in mind that in western Christian tradition the famous embrace from Judas to Jesus is associated with high betrayal. An embrace from someone unknown is a sign of prosperous businesses. From foreign subjects it announces imminent travel; from a friend it indicates low morale; from a relative, cheating and scams; from a deceased person, bad news.
