To dream of a pick pocket represents feelings about yourself or others taking advantage of others status, power, or self-respect. Taking advantage of other people’s honesty to achieve your goals. Feeling weary of being conned. Feeling that someone is not to be trusted. Feeling that you’ve been warned about someone else’s untrustworthy behavior.
Alternatively, a pick pocket may reflect feelings about dishonest people who cleverly fooled you. Feeling that you “didn’t see it coming” or could never suspect someone as dishonest.
Witnessing pick pockets at work in a dream may reflect issues with trusting people. Feeling that someone is trying to take advantage of you or use you.
Alternatively, pick pockets in a dream may reflect your negative feelings about people you feel want to borrow money from you and not return it. Feeling that someone is taking advantage of your stronger financial situation. Feeling that someone is trying to rip you off.
Example: A man dreamed of walking around a place where he saw pick pockets at work. In waking life he had lent money to someone whom he felt was not going to pay him back.
