When the cane functions as a weapon it means that in real life you are behaving tyrannically and are using your power arbitrarily.

For the Freudian school, the cane is identified with physical virility. For the Jungian, it refers to psychic masculinity.According to the old masters in the oneiric field this dream omen is negative.
