To dream of a pendulum represents feelings about the inevitable back and forth nature of a situation you are experiencing. A predictable change of power or advantage. A metaphor for there being two scales to every situation or conflict.
Positively, represent confidence or certainty that a negative situation doesn’t have to stay the way it is.
Negatively, may reflect anxiety about changes. Feeling that unpleasant changes are inevitable. Feeling that power or advantages are never permanent. Anxiety or discomfort that a situation will not stay stable. Consider the saying “the pendulum swings the other way.”
Example: A woman dreamed of seeing at work. In waking life she was unsure about whether or not it was the right time to leave her workplace due to the unsafe conditions.
