What does it mean when you dream about a finger?

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.
