Dream Decoded: "I'm being chased by someone."

Astrology.com dream analyst Cathy Pagano interprets

I’m running away from someone, unknown and unseen, through an outdoor mall. I never know who is after me or why or where they are exactly -- just that I'm trying to lose them. I don't have it often, but I've had it multiple times over the past few years. It kind of freaks me out! -- mama_kimmie

Cathy interprets:


Women are prone to dream of people (energies) that chase us. The “someone” who will rob, “rape and pillage” her, who will invade her “space.” In our society, there is always someone or some idea that batters a woman into thinking and feeling insecure. It’s part of what women have to deal with to become secure individuals.

The mysterious “other” is really just part of you, an aspect of your soul that wants you to pay attention. Your ego, which represents who you think you are, is afraid to open up to something new, and so this new energy has no choice but to chase you to get your attention. The energy can be a new way of seeing the world, a new way of doing things, a new belief. But your old way of dealing with life is afraid to embrace it.

My question to you is: What new way of being, of doing something, of learning something, are you trying to deny and push away? What new possibility is so scary to you that it feels invasive? That’s who’s chasing you: a part of yourself that wants you to grow!

It’s time for you to change and evolve, and you’re most likely afraid to open up to those changes.

The setting is a run-down flea market. What does that image evoke in you? A flea market is a place where people sell old things that they feel are valuable. What old values do you need to look at? What are you running away from? Let’s consider an example: Let’s say that there is something in your life that you know is a lie, and yet you won’t face it. Perhaps you won’t speak truth to power. That’s scary, isn’t it?

The dreams will stop if you face what is scaring you. Imagine turning around and facing this fear. Once you do, it will fade away -- I promise!

Good luck and sweet dreams!
