The meaning of hanging in dream | Dream Interpretation
A hanging has two symbolic connotations.
The first is that it is a death and so it relates to the sacrifice that comes along with great change and transformation.
The person dying by hanging represents a part of yourself that may be being released or let go of in order for something new to come along to replace it. Because hanging involves the neck, issues of communication and the voice may be part of the meaning of such a symbol. Consider again the person who is hanging in the dream. Once you understand the character aspect of what part of your personality the individual represents, you may consider whether that part of you is choking off your ability to have a more authentic voice in some aspect of your life.
