Murder. Something is being killed (violently): a relationship, an emotion, an unused talent, or any number of things. On the other hand, just as often, it may mean a courageous act of liberation that is freeing emotional energies.

A frequent dream symbol to have at the end of a depressive phase, because now, after being liberated, you can search for a new beginning. Such dreams always set in motion something symbolic and by no means refer to the real danger of death.

To shoot in a dream (e.g., a gun or a game of pool) indicates success in the dreamer’s endeavors if they hit their target or pocket their ball. Shooting is a central activity in our entertainment media, so a dream about shooting may just be something from a movie we have seen. Alternatively, shooting is an obvious symbol for anger, aggression, and even aggressive male sexuality.

Dreams can also be alluding to the meaning of familiar idioms, such as “shoot your mouth off,” “shoot yourself in the foot,” “shoot someone down,” “shoot the messenger,” etc.... Dream Symbols in The Dream Encyclopedia

You have a good chance of succeeding but be careful, you have enemies! A star-filled sky is a promise of good fortune, if you don’t set your goals too high. Seeing a shooting star: your most ardent wishes will be granted. Stars hidden behind clouds: a possible accident.

The dream is a sign that you have lost your inner compass and are on the wrong path. See Heaven.
