Can symbolize an addiction or something that is causing you to feel stuck or an inability to let go of the past. In real life, what do you need to break free from or let go of? Your dream is giving you the image of a hook to show you that you are caught on something, you’ve allowed something to have a hold on you. Just as a fish hook catches a fish and pulls it out of it’s natural element, something has a hold on you and is pulling you out of your element. Time to remove the hook and free yourself so you can move forward.
