This is one of those obstacle symbols that has a shade of meaning connected to emotional overwhelm that is causing you to feel ungrounded. Quicksand is made up of earth and water in a treacherous combination whereby the water is abundant and the makeup of the earth is such that the water is not readily absorbed. Anytime water is present with regard to a symbol, there are issues of emotionality in play. Since quicksand’s water content is essentially imperceptible until you find yourself engulfed in it, your interpretation should reflect this sense of being initially unaware of the danger and the astonishment of discovering that you are suddenly in peril.
Symbolic of a trap that can kill you, Ps. 69:2
Feelings of insecurity, emotions which take away our confidence or sense of value or adequacy.
