Seeing a cactus is a symbol of irritability and sensitivity. A cactus is a sign of being too sensitive and that is why you put a barrier around you.

You don’t want to let people get close to you because you know you might get hurt. But that way you stop yourself from enjoying beautiful things in life.

You always have your guard up and you don’t want to put it down even when you know that might make you feel better.

A cactus in a dream is a sign to you to think about yourself and your actions – will they give you positive things in life?

Seeing many cactuses in a dream is a symbol of overprotection from things that are not necessarily bad for you.

This dream can be interpreted as your subconscious mind that is scared of making connections with strangers. You have your small circle of people and you don’t want to expand it.

On the other hand, if you saw someone holding a cactus it may mean that you feel their resistance towards you and that is bothering you.

There are several meanings of seeing a cactus in a dream and interpretations vary. In this article, we will explain your dream to you.

The most common dreams about cactuses

You are afraid to care because you know it might make you vulnerable. But, the cactus in a desert is always alone and you don’t want to be that lonely cactus.

The symbol of a single cactus is loneliness, fear, insecurity. You are insecure about yourself and that is why you don’t try to show yourself in a better light.
