To have one’s legs knocked out from under one’ means loss of confidence and urge to carry on with life. Although we may depend upon someone like a partner or parent for support, or work or position for self value, ultimately the legs represent our own emotional or conceptual support system. So we may be considering what sense we have of our own value when trying to understand leg(s) in our dream. See left; right; lame. Feet: foundation; to have ‘one’s feet on the ground’; to be well or badly grounded’; fundamental issue in our life. Idioms: put one’s foot in it; feet of clay; let the grass grow under your feet.

The legs primarily function for standing and walking. In this way, they are symbolically linked to all the ways in which you must stand up for yourself, take a stand on something, or stand up for the rights of others. In terms of the mobility function, legs are linked to how you are moving about in your life, your power and efficacy in how you are walking your talk. Consider what is happening with your legs or the legs of a person within your dream and apply the qualities being exhibited to these principal ideas.
A broken leg is an indication of something that is inhibiting your powerful movement through life that will eventually heal. Legs that are too weak to support you indicate a moment when you are unable to give yourself the foundation you need.
