To dream of a hedgehog represents feelings about honest intentions having been disrespected. Sensitivity about having been lied to first. Behavior that is both shy and defensive. Honest intentions about discussing how dangerous some area of your life is.
Negatively, hedgehogs may reflect a competitive attitude that is uncalled for or rude. Feelings about yourself being a wonderful person who someone else has rudely embarrassed. Feelings about someone else rudely making you feel like you don’t matter first. Being honest about your problems and then feeling insulted that someone else is brags about themselves. Being talked to or treated like a “piece of garbage” when you are good person.
Example: A man dreamed of seeing a hedgehog. In waking life he felt that a female friend was rather insensitive to him about bringing up her daughter’s job promotion at work after casually mentioning to her that he was out of work. He felt that his friend was rudely making her daughter sound like she was better than he was when he was only trying have a friendly conversation.
Example 2: A woman dreamed of seeing a hedgehog walking around on spikes. In waking life she ran out of birth-control drugs and her boyfriend was blaming her for having to bother using condoms. The hedgehog may have reflected her feelings about being treated rudely for the lack of birth-control after being wonderful to her boyfriend by having sex with him.
