Pins in a dream signify petty annoyances such as family squabbles, hurt pride or minor disappointments. To dream of actually hearing the proverbial pin drop is a prophecy of contentment. Sitting on a pin predicts a happy surprise, and pinning up an article of clothing forecasts a coming social embarrassment. To dream of swallowing a pin suggests that careless planning will lead you into an unpleasant situation, but a lucky circumstance will get you out. Pricking yourself or being pricked by a pin (unless you sat on it) signifies that you will have to help someone else cope with some problems. Finding a pin is a sign of general good luck in all your current interests.
