Danger

(dreams)
A dangerous situation in your dream might reflect a dangerous or threatening situation in daily life. Take the hint and pay closer attention to your finances, business matters, health, and things in general. As compensation, danger in your dream may be a positive sign and an indication that you are capable of overcoming current obstacles.
