Dreaming of shooting arrows is usually a way of focusing on your goals or identifying what you are trying to achieve. Interestingly enough, just like the mythical cupid, f you are struck by an arrow, the dream is opening you to intimacy. Anything that penetrates the skin to reveal blood, is symbolizing how feelings come to the surface. If you shoot an arrow and miss the mark, you may not be aiming in the right direction. The dream can be suggesting a necessary shift in focus that will allow you to succeed. See also Bow.
