Defend

The symbolism that you feel the need to defend can offer insight into the area of your life that you are currently protecting, sometimes in an unhealthy way. Territory can suggest what you have built or ‘earned’ as in your public identity, career, family or position in life. The idea of protecting something can either suggest recognizing its importance in your life, or seeing how protecting it has trapped you in your growth. If you are protecting a wall, then you need to consider why you would need to erect a structure that can only leave you trapped. Perhaps you are fearful or afraid of intimacy and change.
