The cactus is a negative sign because, like its spines, it reflects the painful moments that the subject is going through. This may be because someone constantly pricks you with her comments or because you need to protect yourself somehow. Dreaming of a cactus also evidences hardship in the professional setting. If it is in bloom, however, it announces that finally the value of the sleeper will be recognized at the workplace. For Mexicans, the cactus is an aphrodisiac, therefore it portends good times in the sentimental field.
