Vulnerable position or status
A dream of feeling under the thumb, under the control, under the scrutiny, or under someone’s authority is telling you that you have allowed yourself to be in a weak position. Also, this dream can be showing you that you are searching for truth that lies beneath the surface. Alternatively, if something under, as in the ground under your feet, can represent support and even unconditional love. Consider the feeling tone of this dream to discern its message for you.
