1. The traditional interpretation

A dream about using a wrench suggests you are working on a problem in your waking life that requires a practical solution. But the dream can be more nuanced than just that.

It symbolizes your ability to fix a situation or relationship. Seeing someone else use a wrench, by contrast, could mean you feel someone else is trying to manipulate or adjust a situation to their advantage. It might also indicate your reliance on others to resolve issues. Both of these dreams emphasize the need for problem-solving and adjustments in your life.

A wrench is a very very deep dream image to make any kind of definitive analysis about. To say without any doubts, I'd want to really dig deep into the dreamer's life and current circumstances.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of employing a wrench signifies your subconscious grappling with the Freudian concept of 'reparative urge'.

Thinking a bit more creatively... It's an indication of your psyche's endeavor to mend or adjust aspects of your life, possibly a reflection of your ego's attempt to reconcile with the id or superego. Observing another person utilizing a wrench, however, could be an embodiment of the psychoanalytic theory of transference, where you project your own feelings of manipulation or control onto another. It might also symbolize your unconscious reliance on external forces for resolution, a manifestation of the 'helping hand' archetype. Both dream scenarios underscore the ongoing psychological adjustments and reparations in your life.

Dreaming of using a wrench symbolizes your spiritual journey towards self-improvement and healing. It's a divine message that you possess the tools to mend your life's challenges. This dream is a spiritual call to action, urging you to adjust your life's path and align it with your soul's purpose. Seeing someone else use a wrench, however, signifies your spiritual reliance on others. It suggests that you may be seeking spiritual guidance or intervention from a higher power or a spiritual mentor. Both of these dreams reflect the spiritual adjustments and healing that are taking place in your life, reminding you that you are not alone in your journey and that divine assistance is always at hand.
