Nails – Carpenter’s nails symbolize creativity via building new things. This is a very stable and strong symbol of creation, and indicates a high probability of success with your venture. However, it is also an aggressive and invasive symbol, which permanently changes the structure of the thing that it encounters. It is important to recognize the power of your venture, if you dream about nails, because while you can pull nails out of a board and place them elsewhere, you cannot remove the holes that they make. If you do not proceed with caution, you may end up doing harm. In Christianity, nails also represent suffering and salvation.
