What does it mean when you dream about a bite?

If one is being bitten in a dream, it can reflect feelings about something threatening in one’s environment, or feeling threatened by one’s own repressed anger or sexuality. If the dreamer is doing the biting, it can reflect everything from self-assertiveness to the desire to attack something or someone in one’s environment. Biting finds expression in an usually large range of idioms that might find expression in dreams: “bite the bullet,” “their bark is worse than their bite,” “bite off more than you can chew,” “bite the dust,” “bite the hand that feeds you,” “bite their head off,” and “they won’t bite.” (See also Dentures, Teeth).
