Symbolic of a lure or trap, Amos 3:5
Spiritually, when we are strong enough, we must ‘tempt’ negativity in some way in order to trap and ultimately control it.
Psychological / emotional perspective: There is an aspect of our lives which needs bringing out into the open. We have to coerce that part of ourselves that is failing to co-operate into making progress. There is some kind of enticement which has to take place.
Material aspects: Baiting an animal in dreams suggests a degree of cruelty which needs addressing.
If we are laying bait then the implication is that we are, at least in part, aware of the problem.
If the bait is already in position then it is a warning to be careful.
Gives gender - specific: In a woman’s dream, putting down bait can be an indication of her doubts about her own ability to attract a partner. She may feel that she has to entrap or ensnare a partner. In a man’s dream the more practical side recognizes the need to capture an elusive idea or concept.
Do not trust blindly in those who seek to please you.
1. Vulnerability or feeling trapped.
2. Searching, attraction, a desire to “lure” (to use bait).
3. A test of cleverness or intelligence.
Dreams of bait reflect your issues of power, whether trying to get energy from someone, or struggling to keep your energy in tact. This dream may be showing you that you are falling hook, line, and sinker for someone’s strategy, perhaps an advertising campaign has lured you in to buying something you don’t need, or a person has seduced you into a situation that is not good for you.
If you dream of dropping the bait, then you are trying to hook someone into doing your will.
In a woman’s dream putting down bait can be an indication of her doubts about her own ability to attract a partner. She may feel that she has to entrap or ensnare a partner.
There is an aspect of our lives which needs bringing out into the open. We have to fool that part of ourselves which is failing to co-operate in making progress. There is some kind of enticement which has to take place.
Spiritually, we must ‘tempt’ evil in some way in order to trap it, and ultimately control it.
