The main modern interpretation of a dream featuring beheading is that it reflects on your personal freedom, and you need to understand it psychologically, which will help you gain more responsibility within your life. If you dream of being beheaded, then it is likely that you are going to be defeated, or you will fail in a task connected to work.

To see others beheaded in your dream shows that it is time to consider other people's feelings. The meaning as outlined above is from an old-fashioned ancient dream dictionary, since in modern life we generally do not encounter beheading.
