Spikes dream representing heightened feelings of needing to be careful to avoid embarrassment or a dangerous outcome. Feeling that your defenses are up or that you need to protect yourself more than usual.
Example: A woman dreamed of seeing someone walking around carefully on spikes. In waking life she couldn’t use a birth control drug anymore because she couldn’t afford it. She had to use condoms which she felt were a higher risk to getting pregnant because they could leak or break.
