Dream About Broken Fingers – Meaning & Symbolism

Have you had a dream about broken fingers recently? It’s a rather unusual dream, but it deserves the same attention as any other dream. Hands or specifically fingers in a dream represent a grip, holding, control, and power. Broken fingers, on the other hand, represent the opposite; no power, no control, or the inability to keep something in your life for a long time.

In order to achieve the most accurate interpretation, it is important to remember as much detail as possible. Did you break those fingers yourself or did it someone else? Was that someone close to you, such as your friend or partner, or someone you have never met before? Below are the most common interpretations of a dream about broken fingers.

You Spend Too Much Money

The dream of broken fingers often means that you can’t keep something in your life for long, or that things “slip” between your fingers. For example, you can’t keep money in your life because you tend to spend all your money right after your paycheck.

If this is the first time you’ve had this dream, it could be a warning that it’s time to change your approach to money because you never know when you’ll need it. If this is a recurring dream, it is a strong warning signal that you must learn not to spend so much money because, in the near future, there may be something you will need money for (e.g. your washing machine, car, or fridge will stop working.)

Things Are Out Of Your Control

The hand and fingers themselves in the dream represent grip, control, and power. So, if you have broken fingers in a dream, it could indicate that you are losing control over something or have no control at all. You may feel like you have lost power and things are no longer what they used to be. This dream is especially common in people who have had an injury or been diagnosed with an illness that in some way limits them and makes them weaker. If this is not the case for you, consider why you no longer have control over your life and consider what you can change to regain your power and take your life back into your hands.

Bottom line

Dreams are often symbolic, so you don’t have to worry about breaking your fingers in the near future. Instead of worrying, focus on what is bothering you at the moment and try to figure out what this specific dream tells you. As mentioned at the beginning of the article, the more details you remember, the more accurate the interpretation you will achieve.
