Spiritually, the spear signifies directness and honour. It has the power of life and death. The spear is psychologically that part of ourselves that is fertile and assertive. To see a warrior with a spear is to recognize the aggressive male. To put a spear in the ground is to mark one's territory. If we are throwing a spear we perhaps need to be aware of our more assertive tendencies. The spear has many meanings from a mundane perspective. It can represent the cut and thrust of business life or the wit of social interchange. In its more negative sense it can suggest sarcasm and bloody-mindedness. A spear represents the masculine in dreams and is a phallic symbol. Whether it appears in a man's or a woman's dream, it allows us to be conscious of the need to cut out nonsense and get straight to the point.
