The meaning of Anger in dream | Dream interpretation
In a dream scenario, anger may express the tension between your conscious and unconscious urges. The aggressor in the dream will often represent the part of you that is demanding to be acknowledged. Freud spoke of an aggressive drive which he believed revealed itself in all walks of life and in all types of people.
He believed that the aggressive drive was just as much present in sex as in war.
Alfred Adler (1870-1937), an early disciple of Freud, believed that anger was the most fundamental force of the psyche and, if repressed, it could express itself in dream images of anger and aggression. Whatever may be the trigger, anger is one of the most common emotions to express itself in dreams, either by physical violence or by using symbols of anger such as weapons. Such dreams are likely to continue until the trigger for your anger is discovered and dealt with.
If a person has recurring dreams in which they are assaulting, raping or attacking someone, this suggests deeprooted sexual problems that they might want to talk over with a doctor. A single dream in which aggression, sexual or otherwise, occurs is not so worrying and is actually quite typical. Such a dream will be expressing negative feelings of anger, hostility, rejection, embarrassment or envy that have probably been repressed in waking life. Dreams of assassination or murder have the same interpretation. Dreams in which you are evicting someone from their home or your home suggests that there is something in your life you are angry about and of which you desire to be rid.
This may be some characteristic within yourself or another person. Dreams that focus on ambushing may have the same theme but in this case there may be something about the person or thing being ambushed that you want to possess yourself.
Libel dreams in which you are attacking someone verbally may suggest that you are spreading vicious rumors or someone is spreading them about you. Any dream in which you have a feud, dispute or attack suggests either a disagreement with someone in your waking life or inner conflict with an aspect of your character. Dreams in which you are rebelling against someone or something have the same interpretation. Pay attention to the atmosphere of your dream as it may reveal much about your emotional state at present. The dream may also be describing your feelings of being threatened.
Frustration, hurt, disappointment in self because of unexpressed emotions and needs. You are always angry at yourself even though yelling at others. Insecurity, fear and negative programs are projected on others because of refusal to acknowledge that source of problem lies within. Anger may be used positively or negatively: to see areas for work on self, or to avoid responsibility and blame someone else.
A dream of contrary.
If your anger was directed at someone you know, you will benefit materially through a friend; if the object or cause of your anger was unknown to you, you will soon be celebrating some joyous good news.

This may be a carry-over from your daily life. In our dreams we can experience and express such feelings safely. Feeling great anger in your dream may be disturbing but pay attention to it and attempt to deal with all of your emotions in a more appropriate and productive manner. Also, you could be being warned to release your anger in a positive manner.
If you are not aware that you have anger, this dream is warning you of its hidden power. Anger is just another pattern to be dealt with.
To dream of anger, denotes that some awful trial awaits you. Disappointments in loved ones, and broken ties, of enemies may make new attacks upon your property or character.
To dreams that friends or relatives are angry with you, while you meet their anger with composure, denotes you will mediate between opposing friends, and gain their lasting favor and gratitude.
