To dream that you participate in a fight, indicates inner turmoil. Some aspect of your self is in conflict with another aspect of yourself. Perhaps an unresolved or unacknowledged part is fighting for its right to be heard. It may also parallel a fight or struggle that you are going through in your waking life. To see others fighting in your dream, suggests that you are unwilling to acknowledge your own problems and turmoil. You are not taking any responsibility or initiative in trying to resolve issues in your waking life. To dream that you are fighting to the death, indicates that you are unwilling to acknowledge a waking conflict or your own inner turmoil. You are unwilling and refusing to change your old attitudes and habits.Chinese boxing, Kilkenny cats, aggressive, all-out war, altercation, antagonistic, appeal to arms, argument, armed combat, armed conflict, attack, battle, battling, bellicose, belligerence, belligerency, belligerent, bickering, bloodshed, bloodthirsty, bloody, bloody-minded, bout, boxing, boxing match, cat-and-dog life, chauvinist, chauvinistic, close fighting, combat, combative, conflict, contending, contention, contentious, contentiousness, contest, contestant, contestation, contesting, controversy, cut and thrust, debate, disputant, disputation, dispute, enemy, enmity, ferocious, fierce, fisticuffs, full of fight, hawkish, hostile, hostilities, hostility, hot war, infighting, inimical, jingo, jingoish, jingoist, jingoistic, la guerre, litigation, logomachy, martial, might of arms, militant, militaristic, military, military operations, offensive, open hostilities, open war, paper war, polemic, prizefight, prizefighting, pugilism, pugnacious, quarrel, quarreling, quarrelsome, quarrelsomeness, resort to arms, saber-rattling, sanguinary, sanguineous, savage, savate, scrapping, scrappy, shadowboxing, shooting war, soldierlike, soldierly, spar, squabbling, state of war, strife, striving, struggle, struggling, the clinches, the fights, the ring, the sword, total war, trigger-happy, truculent, unfriendly, unpacific, unpeaceable, unpeaceful, war, war of words, warfare, warlike, warmaking, warmongering, warring, wartime, words, wrangling
