Symbolic of putting your trust in something that cannot help you, Jer. 10:5
A dream that features a scarecrow represents a lesson poorly learned, something from the past that you should have heeded more carefully.
If the scarecrow has a recognizable face, it’s time to get to know that person better. Your conscious mind may have misjudged them.
1. One is being warned away from something.
2. A barrier to achievement or happiness.
Dreams of a scarecrow symbolize animosity at people that have trespassed over your emotional boundaries, or anger at yourself for having allowed this. Your dream is giving you the message to protect what is most sacred and precious to feel reassured that it is ok to fend off unwanted influence. See Boundary.
False front, pretense, afraid of inner self and others.
If symbolism from Wizard of Oz, implies you have little confidence in your intellectual ability; look within for own strengths and abilities.
A dream denoting dishonest friends (Gypsy).
