A veil can represent all that is hidden and mysterious and this often translates into aspects of the Occult. To take the veil suggests becoming a nun and, therefore, adopting a spiritual path. The veil is also a way of shrouding the feminine in order to avoid temptation and is for many women a badge of faith. The mind has different ways of indicating hidden thoughts in dreams. The veil is one of these symbols. When an object is veiled in a dream, there is some kind of secret, which cannot be revealed except to the initiated or those ?in the know?. We may, as dreamers, be concealing something from ourselves, but we could also be being kept in ignorance by others. Depending on our own attitude the veil may symbolize submission to an external authority. Also consult the entry for Clothes.
