Killing or the attempt to kill in dreams symbolizes the desire to "make someone go away," and should not be interpreted literally as a sign of murderous intent. Who was killed? Can you identify the recipient of your or the killer's anger in waking life? 

If you are killed in a dream, try to identify who in your waking life might be angry enough to want you "out of their life;" it could be an enemy, a divorcing spouse or a boss who you feel intends to fire you. In dreams of murdered loved ones or family members, the dreamer may be worried about a current course of action, which he or she believes is "hurting" the murdered person, such as a child or spouse. Dreams of killing small animals may be a reference to abortion. If you kill in self-defense, the dream is considered a positive sign of self-esteem and confidence; you are able to respond effectively to threats of attack.

Repeated dreams of killing reflect feelings of anger and frustration. It's time to speak to someone, and get it off your chest!
