This symbol needs to be considered in view of the dreamer’s situation at the time.
If your life circumstances are calm and pleasant at the moment, dreaming that you are afraid of something is a warning of trouble ahead. Other symbols in the dream, and circumstances in your life, can explain to you exactly what the trouble will be and how to resolve it.
If you’re presently involved in some tense situations and you dream of being afraid, people whom you consider to be friends may turn out to be less than that.
To dream of calming someone else’s fears implies the resolving of misunderstandings.
