Amputation has different connotations depending on the tone of the dream. When amputations do not refer to actual removal of limbs, they refer to the radical removal of something from one’s life. Positively, a dream about an amputation may refer to the removal of something that, although formerly quite close to the individual, is no longer necessary or desirable. Negatively, it may mean the abandonment of talents and powers represented by the amputated limb. Sometimes amputation may also represent a situation that one has been ignoring but which has finally reached a crisis point.
