In addition to that, the arrow usually represents yourself and the bow represents your means and ambition and the target represents your goals in life. You should be able to guess some of the different interpretations that this understanding makes clear but just in case you need a little more assistance, here are some definitions which might help you.
If you dream that you have a bow without an arrow it usually means that you feel like you have ambition to achieve your goals but you just don’t feel that your heart is in it. While the potential for you to succeed once you start a project is definitely there, the desire to even begin that project is absent. In the long run, this dream is basically a warning against going into something which you do not really like. Even if it will give you financial security in the future there are other things that you want to do with your life and you should probably consider those before you jump head on into something that you don’t really want to do. Don’t respond to peer pressure or pressure from parents or anything else, just know what you want to do.
To dream that you have an arrow but do not have a bow symbolizes the idea that you are investing yourself wholeheartedly in something, yet you believe that you do not have the overall dream to complete the project. This is something that is great to take into account before you go into something and end up failing. If you know what you aren’t ultimately invested in it, heart, soul, and ambition, then don’t take on the project. Instead wait until you are ready and have done some other things that you want to accomplish first. After all prior engagements are usually the reason that people fall into this idea.
To dream that you have both a bow and an arrow but do not have a target means that you have the drive and ambition necessary to do something really great in the world, but you just don’t know what that is. This feeling usually comes to many college students right before being forced to choose their majors, or to college students’ right before they graduate. Are you in a position where all you need to do is find out something to dedicate yourself to?
Sometimes if you really can’t think of anything at all you tend to remain stagnant for a long time in life. Don’t let this happen for too long or the youthful drive that you have in such abundance will inevitably decrease and you will be left with nothing. Instead, just try something like joining the Peace Corps. Here your ideas and principles can get put to good use until you figure out something that you really want to do. It does not have to be the Peace Corps. Any charitable organization will do, just find somewhere to spend your time while you work on figuring things out.
