Detailed dream meaning

The javelin, being a phallic object, sometimes can represent masculinity. The nature of the javelin is piercing and can harm or hurt someone if intended to. Because of this it will sometimes be a reflection, especially for men, about being protective, dominant, and overall masculinity. For a woman to dream of a javelin she likely is having troubles with a specific man in her life (not necessarily romantic) or issues with her father.

Once masculinity and father issues are weeded out and deemed not to be an issue the javelin also is an omen about working hard, having focus, and follow through in order to attain goals. Seeing a javelin in your dream indicates that you need to pool together your inner strength and resources to find a solution to a situation in your life. Usually the issue that you will be dreaming about will be a stress about everyday needs such as work or finances. Seeing the javelin is a strong symbol that things are going to be alright so long as you knuckle down and do not allow distractions to detract from your current goal.

The skill that you throw a javelin with in your dream can have deep meaning. Being skilled with the javelin indicates that you have practiced and put a lot of time into understanding your weapon. When you throw the javelin and hit your mark this is therefore a great omen for obstacles being removed and having the skill and dexterity in your waking world to handle obstacles that come up in your life. It can also be a sign of promotion or reward for a job well done.

Throwing a javelin but not being any good at it indicates a current struggle that comes with a life lesson of learning. Take your current status or situation with a grain of salt and understand that sometimes pain is associated with growing. You are where you are supposed to be and victory will be yours, however you need to apply focus and allow others to teach you right now.

Being taught how to throw a javelin can represent a mentor or a person that you can trust that will help you achieve your goals and gain honor or prestige.

Seeing a javelin in your dreams in any other way other than throwing one indicates a sign of status and power. Even if javelins are being thrown at you, this shows that you are worth the effort and that someone is going to push or challenge you. Have faith that your psyche has shown you the javelin and that good things will come in your due time.

This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life

  • Getting a promotion or doing better at work.
  • Being rewarded for hard work and a job well done.
  • Being strong and determined.
  • Not losing focus on goals in your life.
