For a young woman to dream of a porcupine, portends that she will fear her lover.
To see a dead one, signifies your abolishment of ill feelings and possessions.
Good things may happen to you, but they will carry difficulties with them.
From a more pragmatic point of view, porcupines are cute but untouchable animals.
As a dream symbol it may represent a situation or a person in your life that fits that description.
To dream of this prickly animal predicts an increase in your status, but it will be accompanied by an increase in stress.
