Meaning of dream: Guard

Dream Guard

The guard is an archetype whose job it is to protect.
Guards can show up in a number of different settings, from the government to a prison, but their essence is the same.
They keep danger and violence at bay.
As a character aspect in a dream, any guard is the part of your own psyche that is there because of a sense of the danger that may befall you from the outside world.
Conversely, a prison guard may indicate that there may be feelings of violence inside of you that must be contained.
