To dream of a string puppet represents you or someone else that is "pulling the strings" from behind the scenes.
To dream of a hand puppet represents an attempt to hide behind rhetoric or good feelings. Patronizing behavior or communication. Making others feel good about something you don't really think. Teaching yourself to feel good about a lie.
In a dream, stockings represent wealth and prevention, as long as they are not worn. Once seen worn in a dream, they mean business losses. If one’s mother is alive, it means that he will migrate with her to another country, or it could mean that she will be deprived of her son. If the socks are new and have a clean smell in the dream, it means that one regularly pays his due alms, that he is praised for his character and that his money will grow in a lawful way. If his socks are old or emit bad odors in the dream, it means that he withholds paying the obligatory alms tax, that he is uncharitable, worthy of blame and that his wealth will quickly disappear.
