If an article is luminous it contains its own light, which is a spiritual attribute. Usually in dreams, when something appears as luminous, what is represented is transparent, easily understood and with a quality beyond the norm. As a reflection of a piece of work or project that has been well executed, an image may appear in dreams as filled with its own light, i.e. luminous. In both men's and women's dreams, love and passion can give a luminous quality to images. It is as though the energy has taken on a different quality.
