Dream 538: I hate that I hate you

A woman dreamed that she killed a white scorpion that stung her and wondered what it could mean.

Interpretation

In dreams, animal represents part of the dreamer’s instincts. Scorpions typically represent aggression. This dream is probably a combination of levels one and two.

If it were just level two, the interpersonal level, it would represent getting revenge or wanting to get revenge, for someone being aggressive toward you.

At the first or intrapsychic level, it would represent repressing your aggressive instinct (killing it) for aggressive thoughts or acts against another.

A condensation of the two levels, which I think may be the case, would be getting revenge for someone being aggressive towards you, and not feeling great about it (or at least your subconscious does not think the idea was so great) and subconsciously decreasing or killing the idea of counterattack (or resolving not to do it in the future).

The fact that it was a white scorpion may be significant. White is the most spiritual color there is which makes it more likely that the dream is referencing thoughts and intentions more than acts.
