A dream about a hitman often symbolizes feelings of fear or anxiety in your waking life. It's often not quite so simple though.

You may feel threatened or under pressure, possibly from an external source like work or a personal relationship. If you dream of being targeted by a hitman, it could indicate feelings of vulnerability or a fear of being controlled by others. It's important to remember that dreams are subjective and can be influenced by many factors, so these interpretations may not apply to everyone.

A hitman is a very very deep dream symbol to really clarify with certainty. To say with any kind of confidence, it would be necessary to get an understanding of the dreamer's life and current mindset.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of a hitman, in Freudian terms, may represent the id's aggressive impulses, which the ego and superego attempt to regulate.

Somewhat similarly: This dream could be a manifestation of repressed aggression or guilt. If you're the target, it might symbolize an internal conflict, perhaps a struggle with self-criticism or self-sabotage. The hitman could be a projection of your superego, enforcing the moral code and punishing the ego for perceived transgressions. These interpretations, however, are not universal. The dream's meaning is contingent on the dreamer's unique unconscious dynamics and waking life experiences.0

Dreaming about a hitman or being targeted by one can be a spiritual message about the need for self-reflection and transformation. The hitman symbolizes a force that is trying to eliminate aspects of your life that no longer serve your higher purpose. If you're the target, it suggests that your spirit is urging you to let go of harmful habits, thoughts, or relationships that are hindering your spiritual growth. This dream is a call to embrace change and to trust in the divine process of renewal and rebirth. Remember, dreams are deeply personal spiritual messages, so the exact meaning can vary based on your individual spiritual journey.
