Seeing something that has become rusted, shows how the ‘elements’ or experience have worn you down. It can sometimes portray feelings that have become ‘mechanical,’ or routine and can be a complex or abstract view of blood, as in your life force that has run dry. Where something that is decaying can show a part of the self that has been neglected due to fear, seeing something rusted shows what is neglected because of hardness or being jaded. See also Metal.
