DREAM DICTIONARY - Gang :Gangs will often link to situations where people are behaving ruthlessly and its seen as acceptable to take advantage of the weak. Have you just witnessed someone behaving ruthlessly? Did someone try to take advantage of you yesterday? Did someone pick on you yesterday? On the other side did you pick on someone yesterday? The dream may link to your feelings of shame connected to this? Or to you enjoying the power over someone?
Gangs have a strong sense of belonging but they also reject those who are not in the gang. Your dream maybe about your wish to break into a group which is very tightly knit. It may be about your feelings of rejection as you feel left out. It may show that you feel very alone - that you feel that the world is ganging up on you.
Gangs are also a very male thing. They can represent the worst side of mens behaviour. You may get such a dream if you are having problems with men right now - are you turning into a man hater? Have you been abused by a man or men? If you are female then the dream maybe about these negative feelings towards men in general.

The dreams meaning revolved around this theme of "feeling excluded" and linked to this type of feeling "I went to my old employers yesterday and felt ignored and excluded. I used to feel part of the team but felt none of that yesterday" A gang seems an unusual metaphor to express this situation as in real life the dreamer did not feel under threat of violence as in the dream. However, the main feature of a gang is that you are either in or out. Previously the dreamer felt part of the team at work but now she was just ignored.
