This instrument symbolizes justice, in other words, the balance between punishment and guilt. In oneiric terms, the scale shows the subject’s desire to measure, weigh, test, or judge any aspect of her personality or life. If you are evaluating the pros and cons of a situation, the dream will help you make the right decision. Weighing something important or being on the scale suggests that you must see things from a more balanced view, without being overly emotional. So, it is better not to rush and think calmly before acting. Finally, to see an empty scale in dreams indicates problems of self assertiveness. Since ancient times, the scale has been the symbol of justice. For the Egyptians, it was the instrument on which the god Anubis weighed the souls of men. The dream may be telling you that justice will come in a particular matter. In any case, the balance is associated with gains, justice, and happiness.
