Dream Dictionary
To dream that you spy upon others through a keyhole, you will damage some person by disclosing confidence. If you catch others peeping through a keyhole, you will have false friends delving into your private matters to advance themselves over you.

To dream that you cannot find the keyhole, you will unconsciously injure a friend.
