Being a victim of a bomb in a dream is a clear warning that a situation out of your control could explode if necessary measures are not taken. Therefore, you must rectify some aspects of your behavior.
If the one who places the bomb is you it means you are losing control and refuse to accept responsibility. On the other hand, this dream also indicates your internal condition. Perhaps, something is affecting you that you may want to explode in rage. The same goes for all those feelings and emotions that you repress.
If you avoid expressing them, they will end up exploding sooner or later.
The oneiric superstition says that a discussion that besets you will end happily.

See Anger Management and Death.

A dream about a bomb can sometimes be triggered by a deeply disturbing experience in your waking life. Otherwise, your dream is trying to alert you to a potentially explosive situation. You may need to face up to feelings you have been suppressing before they overpower you and create havoc. If there is ongoing conflict in some area of your life, you could be toying with the idea of dropping a bombshell in an attempt to resolve it, once and for all.
Questions to ask yourself - and what to do when the answer is ‘yes’
Have I been thrown off balance by a traumatic event?
Am I repressing some powerful feelings?
Would I secretly like to say or do something explosive?
Vision: Witnessing an assassination attempt on a person of authority: you might be able to avoid (unknown) danger; or the danger has past. Seeing a bomb explode warns you not to act violently or aggressively. Throwing a bomb at somebody means hostility and aggression initiated by others or by yourself. Seeing a bomb on the ground means sudden and unfavorable events.
Depth Psychology: The bomb, more than anything else, is a symbol of impending danger where emotions are out of control or where you are gripped by fear.
If repressed Aggression is the reason, try to prevent the Explosion as quickly as you can. This dream has to be taken seriously!
A bomb is quite an attention-getter if it goes off in a dream. Perhaps a situation is becoming too explosive and the dreamer needs to tread carefully to avoid “land mines.” Alternatively, perhaps the dreamer is so tightly wound because of some situation that he or she feels ready to explode.
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.
Psychological / emotional perspective: 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.
Material aspects: 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.
A warning of sudden failure caused by pent-up pressures
When a bomb appears in a dream, things are changing drastically, very fast.
A bomb creates an enormous amount of energy in an instant, and an explosion is a powerful symbol of great change. In this case, the changes that are taking place are likely to be creating a great deal of chaos and challenge.
A bomb that hasn’t exploded indicates changes that may or may not happen.
The results of a bomb blast symbolize the havoc that is wreaked when enormous changes take place.
Symbolic of something that will cause major problems or damage
Explosive situation; sudden anxiety-producing events—as when we say something occurred out of the blue, one’s own aggression; fear of death, remembered anxieties of war, social bombshells, such as being criticised in the press
(1) A bomb may be a symbol of some unconscious emotional force — for example, sexuality’, or aggression. Repressed desires or drives are likely to explode eventually, causing perhaps a lot of hurt to yourself and others. Deal with them now by giving them your conscious attention and allotting them some place in your daily life. Don’t wait for the explosion - except in the dream itself: in all nightmarish dreams it is a good idea to stay with the dream to the very end, instead of waking up before the frightening conclusion (the explosion; hitting the ground after falling from a height; or whatever it might be).
If you wake up from such a dream before it is finished, you are probably shirking some issue in your personality or in your external life.
(2) If the bomb is an atom bomb, the dream mav represent your anxiety about the way things are going in the world. On the other hand.
even anxiety about the atom bomb may be a symbolic representation of deep anxiety about yourself. Some dreams allow both an objective- external interpretation and a subjective-internal interpretation.
