What is the meaning of 'Sword' in dreams?


To dream that you wear a sword, indicates that you will fill some public position with honor. To have your sword taken from you, denotes your vanquishment in rivalry. To see others bearing swords, foretells that altercations will be attended with danger. A broken sword, foretells despair.
