Guns, rockets, knives, spears, etc., depict our de­sire to hurt someone or, if we are being shot or hurt in the dream, how we have internalised our own aggression or past hurts or fear of being hurt; also defence against fears or being hurt.

If we shoot or stab someone or something, we need to consider what part of ourself we are turning our aggression upon.

If we kill or injure a recognisable person, we may be harbouring the desire to hurt or kill that person, even if only in reputation. All weapons can represent male sexual drive or aggressive sexuality.

The situation in which the action takes place: defines what the weapon expresses. Ineffective weap­ons: feelings of inadequacy.

A work tool used as a weapon: our skill or authority turned against ourself or someone else, as might happen if a doctor got sexual favours through his position.

Various weapons can suggest differing degrees of spiritual power. This power should always be used with relevant caution. Consult the entries for armour, arrow, dagger, gun, knife and sword for further information.

Psychological / emotional perspective: To have a weapon used against us means that we have to look at how we are party to people being aggressive around us. It may be that we have done something to upset the other person, which results in aggression, or it may be that we have put ourselves in a position of becoming the victim of circumstance. Different weapons have various meanings: an arrow indicates being pierced by some kind of powerful emotion, of being hurt by someone else through words or actions. In order to make ourselves feel better we must turn our attention inwards.

The gun or pistol traditionally represents male sexuality and for a woman to dream of being shot often indicates her thoughts about sexual aggression.

If we are shooting the gun ourselves we may be using our masculine abilities in quite an aggressive way, in order to defend ourselves.

A knife represents the ability to cut through debris, to ‘cut into’ whatever is bothering us and to cut out the hypocrisy that perhaps is prevailing in a situation.

The sword has more than one meaning. Because of its hilt – which is a cross shape – it often represents a system of belief that is used in a powerful way. Equally it can be used to suggest spiritual strength, creating an ability to cut away the unnecessary more powerfully than the knife.

The sword when sheathed is the soul or the self in the body.

Material aspects: To dream of weapons usually suggests our desire to hurt someone or something. We have internalized our aggression and it is marginally more acceptable to dream of weapons and of using them against people, than actually having to deal with such circumstances in everyday life. Depending on the weapon that we use we may get a fairly good idea of what the real problem is in the waking self.

To dream of squeezing the trigger of a gun, for instance, suggests that we may be at fault.

To see or hold a weapon in your dream indicates a need to defend and protect yourself emotionally and/or physically. You are experiencing some conflict in your waking life. Alternatively, it suggests a fear of the opposite sex.

1. If holding a weapon, one feels threatened emo­tionally or physically.

2. Depending on the weapon, a phallic symbol.

(see Ammunition, Armor, Axe, Knife, Fighting, Sword, Whip)

Taking up a weapon reveals hostility or fear that you may be repressing during waking hours. Turn to look upon the object of your actions. Sometimes just facing your true feelings is enough to begin the healing process.

Guns are violent, but impersonal. These reveal a source of anger or anxiety that you would prefer to keep at arm’s length. How healthy this distance is for you, however, is questionable, or your dreams would not reveal it.

A catapult indicates the ability to circumnavigate an obstacle by ingenious thought and assertive action.

Cannons can fire over a large distance, meaning the perceived threat is not nearby. Additionally, they may symbolize things that you value very little (e.g., something

best used as “cannon fodder”). As an omen, cannons portend a struggle that engages powerful torces.

Maces represent blunt realities that are so cold and firm as to nearly knock you off your feet with their realization.

Nuclear devices represent tremendous buildup of frustration to the point that it leaks into your life as a futile attitude that poisons everything.

General Meaning: The Word says that no weapon formed against you will prosper. It also teaches us to put on our own spiritual armor and weaponry.

• Weapons, regardless of their form, are a picture of warfare and of our stand against the flesh and the enemy.

• Apostle Paul also tells us that the weapons we fight with are not weapons of flesh, but of spirit. Our authority is vested in the Lord, and any action we take should be with our spiritual authority.

• 2 Corinthians 10:4 For the weapons of our warfare [are] not fleshly, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds
