Protagonist in my dream was a colour shifting scorpion
So, I already read upon dream interpretations. There's different meanings of scorpions and different meanings of the scorpions colour. My problem: the scorpions colour switched whilst I was trying to catch it in order to safe my family and also trying not to get stung myself.
Might anyone be so kind, trying to figure out what my subconscious self is telling me? Ask anything though, I'm an opened book.
It started yellowish, sitting on the wall. When it run towards me, it turned dark red. I ran away from it. fell downstairs whilst it was chasing me. Suddenly it was like black? But also had features I think in maroon? I was scared of it and it was quite aggressive towards me (running at me, waving its stingy thingy, trying to attack me) and I tried my best to get rid of it before it could get to my grandma.

Skeleton at a Crossroads
Ever since I was around the age of five I’ve had this reoccurring nightmare where I wake up on a dirt road more specifically always coming to realization I’m at a crossroads surrounded by foggy fields and a tree line I can barely see. I don’t ever understand how or when the skeleton appears but I know when he’s there. I feel an overcoming sense of dread and fear. He never speaks he just stares at me, and eventually I’m running away and he’s chasing me. On other occasions I’ve been able to run into a forest and hide and wake up then in others my late grandfather had been in one before and in another after he passed.
I have no idea how or why I get this dream or what it means but I need advice on how to fix it? It’s been plaguing my mind a lot recently and I’m very curious and kind of scared to get anyone’s interpretations.
I’ve read before that skeletons can represent death and I’ve heard that crossroads mean I’m about to have to make a decision but I honestly believe it’s something bigger or more sinister....
If anyone has any thoughts or advice I’m open ears

I had an interesting dream I guess, it may sound like a joke but bare with me it’s real, can someone interpret?
So I just woke up, I was going to sleep for the night around 9pm(long day) and it’s 11:30 right now. The earliest part I can remember is me in an incredibly nice house owned by two women I don’t recognize, my cousin was there with me as well. He was just watching TV in one of the rooms and I was in another on my phone. Next thing I see a woman with her hand on my pants like she’s about to suck my dick, moving her mouth around and flexing her tongue. “Hold on I’m stretching” she then sucks my dick until I climax(bare with me ) She then starts talking about how a New Mexican poolboy started working and how he has a “fat bulge” and if they should invite him up. At this point I ask for another blowjob(not sure why) and she gives it to me, but I never got to climax, right in the middle of it, everything flashes black. Next thing you know the woman who was sucking my dick has my cousin bent over a table with his arm behind his back and clearly struggling. The woman had a really massive dick and I immediately ran out of the room. She/he was asking for something, screaming it (I don’t remember right now) and I run into my backyard in real life somehow. I take a long piss on my deck and run back inside for my cousin who I can still hear screaming. At this point I’m still inside of my house. Everything is dark and I’m in the kitchen and I see a disturbed little white blonde girl( also unfamiliar) asking for something in a kind way( don’t remember). I try to walk away out of the kitchen but the girl is holding onto my hand resisting. I see flashes of words appear, as if I’m in a videogame. I can only make out a few words, some appearing in blood and appearing for no more than a second at a time every 5 seconds. I notice one in particular “GO UP”, I then heard my cousin screaming from upstairs “(name) HELP” I run upstairs , I tell it’s coming from my bathroom and I open the door. “(Name) HELP HELP *i open the door* (name) help I’m a sexy tub of black ink” I see the bathtub filled to the brim with some sort of black liquid and the number “66” appear in my vision in blood red as if in a videogame again. I run away with the girl, and the tub of black liquid screaming at me with numbers and words still flashing in my vision. At this point I realize it’s a dream and it’s better to wake the fuck up right now. I manage to wake up and here I am. Literally no idea what it means and a little disturbed. Help if you can interpret

My foster mother abuses me [F 23]
So I dreamt that I was at a family gathering and amongst the people was my foster mother. As the event continued, she began getting increasingly verbally abusive, while passing it off as a joke.
For some reason, I was make in the dream and I was not very attractive. Lanky with crooked teeth.
She'd call me names, make fun of my appearance, even call me by a nickname she had called me irl "little autist" which eventually morphed into "little r*tard"
As the dream continued, I had enough and suffered a full emotional breakdown as I tried to run away from the event. My mother chased after me, verbally harassing me until she got me cornered, yelling and blaming me for my distressed state of mind.
The last thing I remember was my mother sitting down, angry that I dared defy her.
So I dreamt that I was at a family gathering and amongst the people was my foster mother. As the event continued, she began getting increasingly verbally...

Slow motion battle
So I just woke up from a dream. It was dark out and my aunt went outside in my dream. Then she started running so me and my sister went outside to see what it was I went down the steps towards the front of my driveway and my sister went through the front yard where my aunt was going. My aunt grabbed my sister and started running towards the door of the house. Then I saw she was running from a rabid animal so I started running up the steps but I was going so slow. On my way towards the steps to my door I passed by a standing toddler. The rabid fox was right infront of the doorway so I swung a stick I had grabbed failing to hit the animal but it still ran away. As I was about to go up the steps to my door way I remembered the toddler just a few feet back and knew it wasn’t going to survive if the fox came back so I went back for it. But as I was going towards the door which was only feet away. I saw the fox coming back at full speed and I knew we weren’t going to make it back inside so me and the baby stood infront of the fox with the baby in front of me. I tried swinging the stick unable to land any hits much like before but found that this time the animal seemed unfazed. And then he bit the baby infront of me. And I just didn’t know what to do I didn’t save the baby like I should’ve and kept it behind me but I also didn’t wanna leave it even though it was getting bit. I just had this feeling we were going to both die after that moment and then I woke up.
Im trying to find some symbolism here but I can’t seem to. If anyone can try and see what this means please let me know. I don’t understand the point of the baby showing up in my dream when it was random to me cause I didn’t know the baby. And I don’t understand why the fox came back once I got the baby and was no longer scared by the stick I was swinging. Or why all my movements seemed so slow and my accuracy was completely off.
What was the meaning and symbolism behind my dream? What did it all mean and why did it wake me at that point?
So I just woke up from a dream. It was dark out and my aunt went outside in my dream. Then she started running so me and my sister went outside to see what it...
