According to Allendy, teeth are the primigenial weapons of attack, and
an expression of activity. Loss of one’s teeth, then, signifies fear of castration or
of complete failure in life, or inhibition (56); it represents an attitude which is the
inversion of that of the Primitive, who, according to the findings of anthropology,
commonly adorned himself with the teeth and claws of conquered animals. Some
interpretations underline the significance of teeth in respect of the sexual aspect
of energy. But of greater importance is the Gnostic concept—for which we are
indebted to Leisegang’s Die Gnosis—in which the teeth constitute the battlements, the wall and the fortifications of the inner man, from the material or
energetic point of view, just as the eyes and the glance are the defence of the spirit.
This explains the negative symbolism of the loss or fracture of the teeth.
If the doctor pulls your tooth, you will have desperate illness, if not fatal; it will be lingering.

Imperfect teeth is one of the worst dreams. It is full of mishaps for the dreamer. A loss of estates, failure of persons to carry out their plans and desires, bad health, depressed conditions of the nervous system for even healthy persons.
For one tooth to fall out, foretells disagreeable news; if two, it denotes unhappy states that the dreamer will be plunged into from no carelessness on his part. If three fall out, sickness and accidents of a very serious nature will follow.
Seeing all the teeth drop out, death and famine usually will prevail. If the teeth are decayed and you pull them out, the same, only yourself, is prominent in the case.

Dreaming about teeth is very common in all cultures and age groups. Most dreams about teeth leave people feeling uneasy and anxious. Consider the overall content and context of the dream and note if you are having dental problems before making interpretation. Teeth usually symbolise power and/or control. Animals use their teeth for defence and nourishment and show their teeth when they are angry. Humans often display similar behaviours. Look and see if you are losing or abusing power and control in any area of your life (especially if you are losing teeth in your dream). Old dream interpretations say that dreaming about teeth is a bad omen that suggests financial difficulties.
Did you know that this is a very common dream? In fact various theories of interpretation have been put forward for this.
It is a dream where you suddenly find that you do not have teeth, or that they keep falling out, suddenly. Certainly bizarre, this dream can be interpreted as a readiness for change.
Just as you lose milk teeth while moving from child to adulthood, so also this dream is telling you that it is time for a massive change in your attitude to life, or asking you to adapt yourself to new circumstances. This is one of the classical interpretations.
At a more ground level, it could just mean that you are insecure about certain aspects, or
It could just mean you are afraid of losing your teeth!
The planetary god and the metal bearing his name. In astronomy, he
is the son of heaven and light; in mythology, he was engendered by Jupiter and
Maia. In essence he is the messenger of heaven. His Greek name of Hermes
signifies ‘interpreter’ or ‘mediator’. Hence it is his task to conduct the souls of the
dead to the Lower World. Like Hecate, he is often triform, that is, represented
with three heads. He epitomizes the power of the spoken word—the emblem of
the word; and for the Gnostics he was the logos spermatikos scattered about the
universe, an idea which was taken up by the alchemists who equated Mercury
with related concepts of fluency and transmutation (9). At the same time, he was
seen as a god of roads (that is, of potentialities) (4). In astrology he is defined as
‘intellectual energy’. The nervous system is controlled by him, for the nerves are
messengers on the biological plane (40). Probably it was the alchemists, with
their lofty speculations, who penetrated farthest into the archetypal structure of
Mercury. In many cases they identified their transmutation-substance with the
‘lively planet’, that is, with the god whose metal is white and decidedly lunar.
However, since Mercury is the planet nearest to the sun (related to gold), the
resultant archetype has a double nature (of a chthonian god and a celestial god—
a hermaphrodite) (32). Mercury (the metal) symbolizes the unconscious because
of its fluid and dynamic character; it is essentially duplex for, in one way, it is an
inferior being, a devil or monster, but in another sense it is the ‘philosophers’
child’ (33). Hence, its unlimited capacity for transformation (as in the case of all
liquids) came to be symbolic of the essential aim of the alchemist to transmute
matter (and spirit) from the inferior to the superior, from the transitory to the stable. Mercury was also credited with an unlimited aptitude for penetration
(32). Its synonyms of Monstrum hermaphroditus and Rebis (‘something double’)
reveal its close connexion with the Gemini myth (Atma and Buddhi); its representation as a feminine figure and Anima mundi (32) is more frequent and significant than its absorption by the masculine principle alone. In this connexion René
Alleau recalls that the essential stages of the alchemic process were: prime matter,
Mercury, Sulphur, Lapis. The first phase corresponds to indifferentiation; the
second to the lunar and feminine principle; the third to the masculine and solar,
the fourth to absolute synthesis (which Jung identifies with the process of individuation). The attributes of Mercury are the winged hat and sandals, the caduceus, the club, the turtle and the lyre (which he invented and gave to Apollo) (8).

Your hands are used to do things, without them we can do very little. When your hands are metaphorically tied it means you cannot complete a task. If your hands are being affected in a negative way in your dreams it may mean that you feel you are not able to complete certain tasks in your waking life, or that you doubt your ability to complete them. If you see clenched hands, fists, it could signify a greater frustration concerning a given task that you feel should be easier to complete.
Night is related to the passive principle, the feminine and the unconscious. Hesiod gave it the name of ‘mother of the gods’, for the Greeks believed
that night and darkness preceded the creation of all things (8). Hence, night—like
water—is expressive of fertility, potentiality and germination (17); for it is an
anticipatory state in that, though not yet day, it is the promise of daylight. Within
the tradition of symbology it has the same significance as death and the colour
