The worm in dreams can also highlight our feelings of ineffectiveness and insignificance (whether this is about ourselves or others).

If the worm is bigger than we are then this would suggest that our own sense of inferiority is a problem.

If we are particularly conscious of a wormcast – that is, the earth the worm has passed through its body – then this is a transformation image and indicates we are capable of changing our lives into something more fertile.
