The key is often a powerful clue to what can unlock the doors of opportunity and happiness. Holding someone else's keys can represent giving them the power to orchestrate how the relationship unfolds. Finding a key in a church can tie wellness to overcoming a sense of guilt. Finding a key in a schoolyard can take you back to ideas of childhood and how you might need to release them. The key is also a sexual symbol and appears when you are denying your feelings - because it seems to say 'here is what is needed to open.' See also Purses, Wallets, Luggage, Jewels and Keys.
