Scissor Dream Symbol


Scissor – Scissors are a symbol of change and precision. If you dream about scissors cutting something that they should not be able to cut (i.e. scissors cutting through darkness or memories) it indicates that something in your life is unacceptable to your subconscious and you are trying to understand how it correlates to the other things in your life that you have experienced; things that seem in direct conflict with your memories or feelings.

If you dream about scissors cutting through something real, like hair or a wedding invitation, it means that a great change is getting ready to happen. In the instance of the hair it means that you are about to undergo a change in personality or outward looks. Perhaps you are going to get a new job and it will change the way others (and even yourself) look at you. In the case of the wedding invitation it could mean that the wedding will forever change you perception of life or that it is doomed.

    I had this dream last night that was someone who’s attacking me of scissor, his on a mask that is white and a black long like wizard gown with a hood, I dont know if his trying to kill me or anything, but his going to get close to me and he point the scissor to, he open and close the scissor that was like his going to cut me, what does this means?? Others said that if you dreamed about scissors someone will die or you yourself will die

  2. I had a dream where I was cutting holy temple garments with scissors. And I did it over and over again cutting up the garments. The garments were very clean. And I believe I saw my hands holding the scissors. Im not sure what to think about it. It was me doing the cutting, looking through my own eyes only seeing the garments and scissors and hands.
