What does it mean when you dream about defecation?

The act of defecating in a dream can indicate that one has unloaded something one has been carrying around. Alternatively, natural self-expression. We can also feel “defecated on.” From a psychoanalytic point of view, toilet training is a major step in one’s development, so defecating has multiple interpretations.
