Cutting is often seen as a dream symbol for the ending or the splitting of two things. If you dream that you are cutting something, this signifies a broken relationship. You are splitting apart a whole into two different parts. The meaning of dream regarding cutting is designed to show that you have probably gone through a major change in your life. Perhaps you have recently parted ways with a friend that you have had for a very long time. Maybe you are breaking up with your significant other pr cutting ties with a family member. Perhaps none of this was planned as neatly as a dream dictionary might suggest, and you actually don't even recall attempting to get rid of any of your relationships. A dream in which you are cutting something into two different parts might be another way of your mind telling you that you are afraid something like this will happen.
As dream interpretation would suggest, certainly if you are afraid of someone cutting you, or cutting something important of yours, then you are probably subconsciously worried that someone is going to cut you out of their lives, or that the intervention of someone else in your life will cause a rift in a relationship that you already have with someone.
If your dream does not necessarily involve cutting, but just cuts in general, this can also be a solemn sign that you should pay attention to. Dream interpretations usually suggest that to dream that you have cuts is to dream that you are letting yourself down in some way, or that you have been let down by someone else. Cuts can also stand as a symbol for femininity according to some dream meanings, and if you are a woman with cuts in her legs in your dream, it could mean that you are involved in feminist turmoil. You haven't given yourself two legs to stand on, and you really need to become more independent according to one dream meaning of cuts.
To dream that you are cutting yourself in a dream is just as severe as it might be to cut yourself in real life. This indicates that you are experiencing something so emotionally unbearable that you are willing to cut yourself out of your own life and totally end it all in one stroke. If you have cuts anywhere on your body it could also be a simply physical symbol for pain, but this is one of the more traditional interpretations. If you have happened to experience pain anywhere recently or seriously hurt yourself, seeing a cut in that same spot in your dream could be a reminder of that accident.
Also, if you feel that something you are going to do might put one of your limbs in danger, you might have a dream where you see a cut in that position. Cutting generally has a negative meaning as far as dream interpretation is concerned and it should be noted that if you ever notice cutting or cuts in your dreams that you should begin to take life a bit more easily.
