Dreaming that you are castrated represents feelings of not being sexually attractive, fit, or good enough. This theme goes back to Freud’s dream theories regarding castration. In such dreams, being castrated represents the fear of losing the love and affection of your mother. In adulthood this can go beyond the love from your mother to a fear of losing love from other important people in your life such as a partner or your children. Further, this dream can represent fears of not being “man” enough, or of not living up to expectations of what manhood is. It can also indicate avoiding responsibility as more responsibility is placed on those who are sexually mature. Along with this, the dream symbol might indicate a fear of sexuality or reproduction.
