Fingers have their own language; see “fingernails” and “pointing”

Dream Dictionary Unlimited | Margaret Hamilton


To point a finger or see someone else pointing is calling your attention to whatever other symbol in the dream the finger is indicating.

If you view the symbol in question as a positive one, then good fortune lies ahead - soon.

If you view the symbol as a negative image, then caution is called for in any business, financial or romantic matters.

If the finger points at a specific person whom you know, that person - or someone who reminds you of that person - is not to be trusted, and any dealings with him or her call for a great deal of caution.

A cut, broken, or bandaged finger is a dream of contrary, indicating significant successes after a great deal of effort.

If you are aware that the finger is of a left hand, you are being warned that any shady sort of dealings, whether business, financial or romantic, will not go the way you hope, and could have upsetting consequences.

Fingers and thumbs have a rich symbolic association because of the wide variety of meanings in various hand gestures. Thus, we may do everything from thumb a ride, to point an accusatory finger at someone, to point the way. Fingers have other connotations because of certain symbolic rings (e.g., marriage rings) and certain verbal expressions (e.g., “fingering” a guilty person). In Freudian psychology, fingers can be a phallic symbol.

The particulars of the gesture in the dream should indicate the meaning.
