A dream that focuses on the throat can be exploring difficult communication. Something may be 'hard to swallow' or words can be 'caught in your throat.' The throat is a part of the body that makes you vulnerable - so dreaming of a throat can represent 'sticking your neck out' in a way that puts your credibility on the line. To dream of a cut on the throat can symbolize tendencies that might be called 'cut throat' or underhanded. Finally, seeing the throat cut in a way that a head topples, shows the release of outworn ideas associated with the person who's head comes off. Losing one's head is also another way of exploring fanatical behavior. See Swallowing and Anatomy and Body Parts.
