Dreaming of a hornet, in Freudian terms, may symbolize an unconscious fear or anxiety, perhaps a repressed memory that is causing discomfort.

We can take this reasoning to another level: The hornet, a creature that is often feared, could represent this hidden fear. Alternatively, being stung by a hornet in a dream could be a manifestation of a painful experience or trauma that you have not yet processed. The sting, a sudden and sharp pain, may symbolize the sudden realization or confrontation with this trauma. In both instances, the dream is a call to confront and deal with these repressed emotions or experiences.
