If you receive blows from someone's hand this dream symbolizes the contradictions you have to bear; but if you do not see your opponent it announces the end of the problems. In the event that you are the one beating someone, it represents the setbacks that you will cause to others. Beating someone, in addition, portends disputes. Hitting against something and receiving a hard blow indicates that your actions and ideas are inconsistent. Anyway, your chances of success are based on your ability to roll with the punches.
