Tigers can represent people that you are very scared of. So if things have been very tense or a situation very volatile then. Does someone cause continuous tension? The dream simply tells you how much you want to avoid that person or how much you were surprised by the outbursts.

Think also of yourself. Did you lose your temper yesterday? Did you regret losing your cool?

Tigers can also link to your fears about something going wrong. Could something have gone really badly wrong yesterday? Are you worried about making some terrible mistake? Did you fear something been 'found out' yesterday? Are you scared to say something in case it may provoke a backlash.
