A wound symbolizes an experience, which may have been unpleasant, that we should take note of and learn from. Any wound or trauma in dreams will signify hurt feelings or emotions. If we are inflicting the wounds, our own aggression and mistrust are being highlighted, if the wounds are being inflicted on us we may be making ourselves into, or being, the victim. The type of wound will be important in interpreting the dream. A large, ugly wound will suggest more violence, whereas a small one may indicate a more focused attack. This wound may be to our reputation, self-esteem or pride. You might also like to consult the entries for Attack and Weapon.
