Jung defines it as a negative figure. Its underground character and creeping locomotion have not given it a really “good reputation.” Worms, therefore, symbolize what has been corrupted. Dreaming of them is often quite unpleasant. It should be added, however, that worms are also good for the garden and its fertility because they aerate the soil and eat up many unfavorable insects. In addition, as it is known, even the most horrifying caterpillars can become butterflies. As a result, this image advises you to not be depressed because of your defects; deep inside every creature, there is a huge potential for transformation. (See butterfly , metamorphosis , and caterpillar ) In traditional books on dreams, worms predict infectious diseases. And if you dream that you wipe them out, the harbinger says you will receive money.
