Anger

(dreams)
This may be a carry-over from your daily life. In our dreams we can experience and express such feelings safely. Feeling great anger in your dream may be disturbing but pay attention to it and attempt to deal with all of your emotions in a more appropriate and productive manner. On a side note, many Jungian analysts believe that the emotions that we experience in dreams are not reliable, may have the opposite meaning, and in general should not be the only thing considered when interpreting a dream.
