Because life itself is so full of conflicts, dream fights can refer to any number of different struggles in our everyday life. Also, the culture in which we are raised can place so many conflicting demands upon us that we are filled with inner tensions, and these various inner conflicts can all be symbolized in dreams as physical fights.

As with all dream symbols, the tone and setting of the dream indicate which meaning is applicable.

Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation | Gustavus Hindman Miller


A fight is the result of a situation that has reached its limit and cannot be resolved peacefully. In this case, its meaning is the same as DISPUTE or WAR. But it can also be associated with VENTING. The dreamer feels uncomfortable or attacked by someone around him, but in waking life cannot, or will not, express his unconformity. So, the unconscious releases an inner battle and represents it in an oneiric scene.

This dream could represent your most intimate frustrations and feelings about the circumstances around you. Deep down, you fight because the situation you are living does not meet your expectations.

According to the guru Sathya Sai Baba, the inner struggle does not exist: everything is provoked by the mark left by the past on our lives. Reminiscence for yesterday creates apparent problems in the present and future.

It is a matter of letting love flow and worrying less. So, the fight that your heart carries out will diminish. Often, this guru says, it is all the product of an illusion.

Filming If the dream unfolds like a film that stars yourself, different conclusions may be drawn according to its genre: if it is drama, an unfortunate matter will depress you; if it is a comedy, however, you will experience pleasant surprises. To direct a film involves excessive zeal to control everything that goes on around you.

The Big Dictionary of Dreams | Martha Clarke


If a maiden sees her best beloved engaged in fighting with another man, it is an omen that he will prove unworthy.
