Abyss – An abyss represents the unknown, and the subconscious. It could represent a circumstance in your life, or a choice you have to make. In that case, you could be standing on the edge fearing to “take the leap” because you do not know what that choice will bring. Alternatively, it could represent a journey into your subconscious, which could be even more intimidating if you jump in. You may confront aspects of yourself that you did not know existed and were not prepared for. While this dream symbol indicates fear, it does not indicate whether the choice to jump in is negative or positive. It is simply the vast unknown.
