Dagger, Dream Interpretation


See “knife”

In dreams the dagger represents an age-old instrument of blood sacrifice. Spiritually, of course, such sacrifice is no longer valid under any circumstances.

If we find the dagger is turned on us in a dream we need to beware of the likelihood of self-sacrifice.

If you are using the dagger to attack someone then you may be trying to cut out a part of yourself or trying to get rid of something you do not like. Being stabbed highlights our vulnerability.

Gives gender - specific: As with any weapon in a man’s dream, the dagger represents his developing assertive behaviour, whereas in a woman’s dream it will be more to do with her drives or her animus.

Symbol: The dagger is a phallic symbol or one of Aggression. It is also a sign of your own weakness and hope that you will find strength and courage.

Vision: Seeing a dagger: you will soon “conquer” your rivals. Defending yourself with a dagger: suddenly you will be able to put an end to a certain matter. Being wounded by a dagger: means sad news. Seeing a dagger stuck in the ground: a warning that you are in danger. Seeing a dagger covered with blood: you have bitter enemies.

The dagger seen in a dream is a threat. It is also considered a symbol of the male sex. Anxiety, fear of bodily injury that may leave the dreamer impotent are associated with dagger dreams that are common to men.

For women, the implication is one of genuine fear of gossip or slander.

If the dreamer takes the dagger away from the assailant, none of the fears will materialize. Both men and women can trace these dreams to some act that threatens their reputation, or a desire for sexual relationship that might harm them morally.
