      Strange symbolism in dream ?

      My sunsign is scorpio so maybe this is no coincidence but I was having a dream, and in this dream i was in my room, and once i walked towards my bed, at the corner of it were two red scorpions, it scared me a lot because they were pretty big, but i couldn't figure out what they were at first, i thought they were lobsters, but then i figured out they were scorpions and left the room in fear while closing the door. I'm looking for an interpretation of what this symbolism could mean. They kind of hid under the bed after i closed the door though. I thought this signified some sort of internal matter within my subconscious but i can't figure it out as it had seemingly nothing to do with the rest of that dream. or maybe someone else had a similar dream ?
      'and one little detail, they had two stingers coming from one tail each. Weirdest part is, it almost seemed like they had no intention to sting me or anything, as i even picked them up when i thought they were lobsters, and then dropped them in panic just to see them run away and hide/disappear under the bed. But they were pretty big, bright red almost lobster like scorpions ( 8 inches each)

      The reason i'm looking for some sort of interpretation is because i couldn't find anything relevant at all on google, and everything i did find was just specifically about scorpions, or the color red, not red scorpions, and i've read other instances of people experiencing extremely similar dreams and they also posted on interpretation forums, but none got a response.

      in this dream i was in my room (Your personal, intimate place), and once i walked towards my bed (Place of peace, rest & intimacy), at the corner of it (Looks like they are just entering- not in the middle, on the edge) were two red (can symbolise conflict) scorpions (Scorpion - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia They are nocturnal and fossorial, finding shelter during the day in the relative cool of underground holes or undersides of rocks, and emerging at night to hunt and feed ... Scorpions are opportunistic predators of small arthropods... They grab & hold with their pincers & sting with their tail), it scared me a lot because they were pretty big (Big issue on the edges of your personal, intimate place), but i couldn't figure out what they were at first, i thought they were lobsters (Lobsters are a delicacy something to be consumed in a context of wealth or very special occasions), but then i figured out (some rational thought rather than emotional response) they were scorpions and left the room in fear while closing the door (They now have control of your personal space because of fear.). I'm looking for an interpretation of what this symbolism could mean.

      They kind of hid under the bed (Out of sight so you might think they are gone, or it is ok, but they are still there.) after i closed the door though (This is something you did not see with your physical eyes as the door was shut, so you must have sensed it somehow).

      I thought this signified some sort of internal matter within my subconscious but i can't figure it out as it had seemingly nothing to do with the rest of that dream {Would you pls post the rest of that dream as it is most likely related even though you may see no connection}. or maybe someone else had a similar dream ?

      'and one little detail, they had two stingers coming from one tail each (I am reminded how American Indians would say people spoke "with a forked tongue" - lies. Duplicity. This also means double the sting. It's emphasising this as we already have 2 scorpions.).

      Weirdest part is, it almost seemed like they had no intention to sting me or anything (Whilst it "seems: this way & this is something they did not do to you during the dream, it is in their nature to do it. So sooner of later they will.), as i even picked them up (You have made contact with this issue, & "Picked them up", a term sometimes used in nightclubs for getting a partner) when i thought they were lobsters (Seem attractive & nice), and then dropped them in panic just to see them run away and hide/disappear under the bed. But they were pretty big, bright red almost lobster like scorpions ( 8 inches each)

      It seems to me that this is a warning dream to alert you to something you are not seeing consciously, in fact it is an issue or person who seems attractive & may involve wealth. A scorpion sting is something that happens suddenly after it's prey is in the right position & affects the nervous system, unlike a python for example which constricts more slowly & affects the respiratory system.

      If the scorpions were in some other place eg outside or a shop, it may suggest a business or work context. But this is in your personal, private place- your bedroom. When we build a romantic relationship with someone, as we trust them more & more, they come into our personal, private intimate space.
      If you have recently started developing a new relationship with someone, I'd suggest being very careful. I'd suggest finding out about their history & seeing what your friends & family think of them before progressing the relationship.

      If this doesn't fit it could be some other issue which is a threat to your rest, peace & privacy. Be careful about where you give your personal information.

      thanks for that indepth analysis of what I wrote, I could agree that it was some sort of warning. It was happening during a part of the dream where I was running away from something, and almost metaphorically represents my mind, I can see how the two needles on each stinger symbolizes double the "trouble" in context of fear of cause/effect. I don't usually post my dreams, but I was looking for an interpretation such as yours, and it seems to me that it can be done by just searching and analyzing my dream journal. Thanks
