Dream about protecting others is a metaphor for your desire for inner exploration and self-discovery. All your conflicts have dissipated. You need to look at a situation much more closely. Your dream is a symbol for your desire to recapture or relive a certain moment in your life. Somebody will give you an answer to a problem you are having.

If you dreamt about protecting others:
You could potentially conquer one person after another today, if you had the mind to. You have complete and utter faith in yourself, and are not about to allow any obstacles to get in your way. But you would feel much better if you thought about the other person and their feelings. Dare to show you really care.
