Barbed wire

You are here

A dream about barbed wire is an omen of entrapped feelings in your life. You may be unable to express yourself or communicate properly in everyday situations. lf you see barbed wire in your dream and it is oppressive or harmful, it means that it is time to let go of whatever makes you feel trapped in your waking life.


Barbed wire in a dream shows that you are having trouble escaping from a difficult situation. The other interesting meaning of this dream is that you are trying to force others against their will in order to control them.

Detailed dream interpretation...


Barbed wire is associated with entrapment. If you dream of a building surrounded by barbed wire, it indicates that you need to stop being defensive when questioned by others. Any type of building represents how you imagine others and alternatively how you see yourself. Therefore, barbed wire would imply a secretive and defensive personality. The moral of this dream is that you should be able to open up to others in order to understand yourself better.

If you are a woman who has a dream involving barbed wire, then this can suggest an aggressive male around you and that it is time to communicate with him in order to ensure harmony in the future.
