Lucid Intent? No
This dream has been viewed 4042 times.I find myself in a familiar hypermarket with my wife, we both have two huge black pet scorpions which have gone on the loose in the huge store and we are attempting to find them and recapture them.
I get down on my hands and knees and using a small pocket torch I shine it beneath some racking at the end of one of the aisles, suddenly out of the darkness I see two bright phosphorescing eyes light up just like those of a cat or wild animal caught in the glare of a cars headlamps at night time.
The huge black scorpion scuttles out from underneath the shelving towards me, feeling happy I hold my hands out completely unafraid ready to take the scorpion into my hands and cradle it like something of a pet.
But just as the scorpion is about to reach me a familiar manager from a local DIY hardware store walks along and purposely steps on top of my scorpion, he slowly crushes the black carapace beneath his foot and the scorpion wriggles and squirms and then dies.
I go into terrible shock but somehow I knew or realised that the scorpion had to die but I just didn’t want it to happen so soon, I just wish I could have a few more moments with it whilst it was alive.
I turn to see my wife and see that she too has found her scorpion, she has the creature caught under the heel of her shoe and appears to be readying herself to slowly bring her foot down on top of it to crush it in the same manner as the DIY manager.
Additional Comments:Thoughts: This is probably related somehow I can imagine to me and my wife as we are both Scorpios. The DIY manager I can guess has something to do with literally doing it yourself or in the case of this dream maybe the manager was crushing the scorpion because I wouldn’t ‘do it myself’. Maybe these getting rid of scorpion dreams have something to do with removing the negative sides of what the Scorpio character represents? The sign of Scorpio is meant to have two other animal signs too one of which is an eagle so it might be saying that its time to move on and try to identify with the other associated animals more?
Dream 1: Finding the courage to talk about a budget – I find myself at work sat at my desk just like lots of other work colleagues with our head stuffed into a pile of papers deep in concentration. The top manager comes into the office and everyone sits up and tries to look respectful and obedient, the manager explains that he needs a volunteer to host a big presentation about a budget, the volunteer will need to speak publicly in front of a large audience and make a presentation with slide show etc. The intimidating manager stands waiting looking sharp eyed at everyone but nobody seems to want to volunteer or has the guts to volunteer. My brain goes into overtime and I start trying to weigh up the potential risks of taking on such a task and whether or not I could actually do it, this could be something of a big break where I really develop myself….or if I mess up the presentation it could be disastrously embarrassing. After a few seconds of hasty thinking I suddenly blurt out half courageously and perhaps half nervously that I will take up the challenge, but I warn the manager that I will only be able to speak about the 10k budget that the department I work in has for next year as I have no other knowledge of how the other departments function. The manager seems quietly satisfied if not silently impressed with my nerve and gives me a nod as if to say “okay then” before turning around and walking back to his office. (a purely symbolic drama I feel as the details of the dream don’t make any sense in regards to my waking life job, the 10k budget probably represents some kind of attempt at reaching a new level or stage of understanding I feel, possibly by speaking openly somehow (like with sharing dreams maybe?)).
Dream 2: Grassroots masturbation – In a vague outdoor environment I find myself chatting with my direct manager, I am in somewhat of a more privileged position and am the one doing the talking whilst he stands and listens to my apparent “wisdom”. I tell my manager off the cuff and as if it were common sense “Masturbation makes the grass grow greener” (???).
