A bomb exploding in dreams often forecasts an unexpected event. Dreaming of a bomb would appear to suggest a fear of sudden death or a cataclysmic event. Psychologically, we need to be aware that our own emotions are likely to get the better of us. Anger, for instance, can be a particularly destructive force. Bombs appearing in a dream usually indicate some form of explosive situation with which we need to deal. Exploding a bomb indicates the need for positive action, while defusing a bomb suggests taking care not to make a situation worse.
