To dream of claws represents the potential for hostility. Knowing that damage can be done if it’s desired. Positively, claws reflect your wish to defend yourself. Negatively, claws may reflect a need for self-defense. It may also be a sign that you need to be careful with your actions or what you say to people.
Example: A man dreamed of putting on a glove with claws on the fingers. In waking life his friend turned on him and he was carefully thinking about everything he could do to get revenge on him.
