The meaning of gun in dream | Dream Interpretation

A Dictionary of Dream Symbols | Eric Ackroyd

(1) A gun may be a sexual symbol, representing the penis.

(2) It may be a symbol of aggressiveness.

If there is any uncontrolled aggression in your behaviour, what is the cause? Are you harbouring guilt-feelings that cause you to be angry with yourself; and does the anger spill over on to other people?

(3) Do you kill someone or some animal with the gun? If it is a parent or partner or sibling, the killing may be a symbol of (unconscious) hostility or resentment. Otherwise, it might be some part of yourself that is symbolized by the victim; in which case you need to remember that every part and function of your psyche - including those that you have repressed - is valuable and has a contribution to make to your attainment of personal wholeness.

A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences | Tony Crisp

Penis, male sexuality; anger, confidence in defending oneself against criticism, etc.; fears or anxieties; attitudes we use as a defence against our own emotions or realisations—a man might feel depressed about growing old, and defend himself against this with positive thoughts; also the bulldozer emotions we sometimes use against others, like a pistol held to their head. When shot by gun: feeling hun, wounded; fear of sex. Idioms: shot in the arm; shot across the bows; shot to pieces; shot in the dark; long shot.

Ariadne's Book of Dream | Ariadne Green

As a lethal weapon in the hand of a shadow character, a gun may express the threat of annihilation. As its shape is somewhat like a phallus, a gun may also represent destructive and aggressive male power.

A gun that will not go off could point to your feelings of powerlessness in a challenging situation.

Complete Dictionary of Dreams | Dr. Mıchael Lennox

This is symbolic of the desire to exert power over others. Whoever has the gun is in charge. Connected to the masculine principle, the gun represents male-oriented power in an extreme form.

The masculine principle is related to action and the ability to make things happen.

A gun of any type connects to this universal energy, but with an intensity that indicates a lack of balance or containment. While the presence of a gun may imply a sense of control in a chaotic situation, its deadly and unpredictable nature implies a breakdown of stability and the potential for lethal danger.

The type of firearm is important to consider, as this indicates the amount of power being yielded.

A handgun relates directly to personal power and should be interpreted as what is available to you as an individual. Something with more firepower, such as an automatic weapon, relates to the ability to express strength on a more social level.

The proximity of the gun in a dream indicates where the power currently resides. Holding the gun puts the dreamer in a position of ownership, but the level of confidence (or lack thereof) should be noted. Having a gun aimed at you indicates that some character aspect of your personality is demanding to be heard and dealt with.

If this is the case, your interpretation needs to include working with whoever yielded the gun in your dream. Brandishing a weapon could indicate a need to be seen as powerful in some area of your life.

A hidden or concealed gun indicates elusive power that is felt though not flaunted.

Dream Dictionary Unlimited | Margaret Hamilton

A force of ejection, i.E. “Shooting off one’s mouth”, etc.; An unsuccessful attempt to fire is impotency

Guns, pistols or rifles in a man’s dream typically suggest male sexuality and defenses used against emotions. The unconscious may have selected this weapon to denote his sexual performance and if he fires blanks concerns about failing virility may be indicated. But because a person can feel impotent in other areas of life a misfiring gun may also suggest general feelings of powerlessness.

If a gun appears in a woman’s dream, it may indicate her desire to be more assertive sexually.

If you are shooting the gun in the dream, you may be behaving in quite an aggressive way in waking life. Are you defending yourself in the dream or shooting for pleasure? If you are shot by a gun, you may be feeling wounded or the target of criticism or hurtful comments in waking life.

If you shoot the gun in your dream, this suggests anxiety about expressing emotions or hidden hostility.
