Interpretation of dream: Buttons

Buttons and buttonholes were simple fastenings holding two different pieces of material together. Spiritually this can represent uniting the physical and spiritual realms into one coherent whole. Buttons were originally a form of insignia, allowing easy identification of friend or foe. If our attention is drawn to buttons in a dream, it is usually to bring about such recognition. The size, shape and configuration of the button and buttonholes may be important. An ornate button will have a different relevance to a simple one; more work or effort is required for the former. A particularly decorative buttonhole suggests that more energy needs to be put into 'fastening down' a project - it perhaps needs to be more upfront.
