A tool or a resource within you that you can use to succeed in life. It is time to mend your life. Your personality may be a bit sharp to others which could make them pull away from you by times. Other times that sharpness may serve a purpose to motivate them into action. It may be time to pinpoint and focus on motivating yourself instead. Dropping a needle may be showing issues within a relationship as you are not handling things with enough care. A needle in use is actions that need to be taken. A needle in a cushion could mean rest or a job has been finished. The eye of the needle is like a doorway or the calm or the eye within an emotional storm. The needle is a significant symbol in many ways and so a meditation on this could help bring deeper meaning.
