To dream of an ice pick represents hostility towards people or situations that you feel intentionally choose to never let you even begin to confront them. A wish to “chip away” at a problem. Wanting to face problems that are “frozen” or that never change at all in small increments. A wish to break up a problem into smaller manageable problems. Dealing a blow to a problem or challenge that seems permanently stuck. Eagerness to force progress or aggressively end stagnation.
Negatively, an may reflect the potential to go overboard taking out your frustrations on a difficult person or problem.
