Being scared in a dream may not be such a fearful dream - it may just mean that you found something scary yesterday. Did you find something overwhelming yesterday? Did something scary happen to someone else that really made you think? Did you go somewhere you found intimidating yesterday? Did you really mistrust someone? Did someone freak you out yesterday?

Being scared could link to relationship problems. Are you fearful that you might lose someone? Do you fear that things are not working out? Do you have some real doubts long term about a partner?

How are you dealing with fear in general recently? Has something happened that makes you especially more fearful? Have you felt someone's reassuring presence recently? Have you been trying to overcome some fear or phobia?

Feeling scared maybe a warning not to do something. Perhaps you have realised the consequences of what you are doing. Were you thinking of doing something that on reflection could cause loads of problems?

Could the dream be about someone else's fears. Was someone very scared or upset yesterday?

Are you scared about change and the future in general? Have you been contemplating some big change? Are you worried about a big deterioration in your health?

I have never been without my grandmother" or "I have never had to cope with a death of a loved one before." It is likely that feelings like these pinpoint why the dreamer is scared.
