Symbolic of the fear of people’s perceptions and opinions, Matt. 11:7
Weakness and instability
Vision: Looking at reeds: pursue your dreams with more determination. Too much hesitation and too many delaying tactics won’t get you far. There are many obstacles to overcome before you reach open waters.
Depth Psychology: You are able to bend like a reed in a storm (you know how to adapt), which is a sign of wisdom, determination, and intellectual curiosity. You are humble and are bending your will to a higher power. Your down-to-earth faith is the source of your confidence and vitality!
(Cane) A reed in a dream represents the worst of people, or it could connote engaging in a despicable and a loathsome conversation. Leaning on a stick of reed in a dream represents the short span of life which remains for such a person, and it could mean that he will become poor before he dies. Reed in a dream also represents a frugal person who has loyalty to nothing, and who has no respect for the common norms or ideals.
If one sees strips of reed turn into strips of silver or gold in a dream, then they denote good and valued deeds. Reeds in a dream also signify prosperity and wealth which is made from lawful earnings, a pure and a chaste wife, or good children. However, reeds in a dream also represent hypocrites; and if one hears their sound in his dream, it means an argument, or a fight. (Also see Caning; Sugar cane)
Be careful—quagmire and mud. Either it is difficult to get ahead or the reed points to protection; you can hide in the reeds, and you can also cover your roof with them.
