To dream about a grapefruit suggests that you are investing too much in something for little or no return.

Consider what is taking up a lot of your time and energy for a small or no reward. Or are you investing a lot of yourself in someone and they aren’t giving you anything back in the way of recognition, appreciation or praise? It may be time to leave this thing or person behind and save your efforts for something or someone more worthwhile. 

Another interpretation is that two things on their own aren’t sufficient- they are weaker or less effective. Perhaps combining them together would make for a stronger argument, product or feeling. Try doubling up or combining forces and see where it takes you. 

A grapefruit is a citrus fruit, which is often very tart to taste, and this can mean people have a love/hate relationship with the fruit.  

Consider who else was with you in the dream or what you were doing- as this might give you some indication as to what or who you have a bittersweet relationship with. Is it worth the rough with the smooth or would you rather walk away?

Along the same vein if you were eating a grapefruit and you don’t like them in your waking hours, you may be doing something or being pressured into something that you don’t want to or find unappealing. 

On the flipside, if you enjoy eating grapefruits, perhaps your life is filled with things you like to do at present, in which case don’t take it for granted and enjoy this phase while it lasts. 

To cut a grapefruit in half and look at the inside indicates a need to compartmentalise part of your life. Perhaps feelings have been blurred and you want to put some boundaries in place. Whether this crossing of the line was down to you or someone else, some rules must be implemented before things get confused again. 

On the other hand, maybe you need to segment some job or task so you can manage it better. To look at it as a whole might be too overwhelming for you right now. Perhaps you need to break it down into more manageable chunks to give you some confidence to complete it.

If a shark tried to attack you in your dreamscape, then maybe you feel that someone is attacking you or trying to take something away from you in your waking hours. If you saw a number of sharks in the water then it's possible that you should not trust anyone around you right now. The good thing is that you can see them for what they are. If you were being pursued by the shark in your dream- this could represent a danger you've put yourself in by disturbing someone or something in some way- perhaps in their home or natural surroundings. If a shark tried to attack you but you managed to escape- this could be telling you to try your hardest and run away from potential danger. It may be that you see an enemy making their way towards you-someone you're trying to stay clear of and you simply need to turn around and head off in the other direction... to read more click HERE
