1. The traditional interpretation

A dream about operating artillery suggests feelings of power and control. What artillery means in your dream may be more nuanced.

You may be trying to eliminate certain aspects of your life, or you're in a situation where you feel the need to defend yourself. Witnessing artillery in action, by contrast, could indicate that you're experiencing conflict or tension in your waking life. It could also symbolize a sudden, dramatic change. Both of these dreams reflect a struggle, whether internal or external, and the need to confront these issues head-on.

Artillery is complex and fascinating dream experience to pin down. To really say for sure, I'd have to get a deeper understanding of the dreamer's life and current life scenario.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of artillery may reflect an unconscious desire to assert dominance or influence over a situation, perhaps a manifestation of the Freudian concept of the 'will to power'.

Likewise — It could also signify a latent aggression, a need to confront repressed feelings of anger or resentment. Alternatively, witnessing artillery in action might symbolize a sense of helplessness or fear in the face of conflict, a projection of the ego's inability to control external circumstances. It could also be a kind of a sudden upheaval or transformation in your life, a symbolic representation of the Jungian concept of 'metanoia'. Both of these dreams suggest a psychological struggle, a confrontation with the shadow self, and the need for resolution.

Dreaming about operating an artillery could signify a spiritual battle you're engaged in, where you're wielding the power of divine truth to combat falsehoods or negative influences. It may also symbolize a call to take action and assert your spiritual authority. Witnessing artillery in action, however, might suggest you're observing a spiritual warfare from a distance, perhaps feeling overwhelmed or powerless. It could also mean you're experiencing a spiritual awakening or transformation, akin to a battlefield being cleared for new growth. Both of these dreams indicate a spiritual struggle and the need for divine intervention or guidance.
