Meaning of Dreams about Animals

Animals Dream Meaning Psychological Meaning:

Animal DreamAnimals signify the primal, instinctive and sometimes base desires. Your dream may be drawing your attention to an aspect of your nature that you undervalue or part of yourself that you repress. Try to get in touch with the ‘natural you’. Be more spontaneous and less rational. Within everyone is a deep instinctive energy that has a transforming power. If you dream of eating an animal this is a classical mythical symbol that represents assimilating natural wisdom.

Fighting an animal may show that you are grappling with your shadow- the hidden part of yourself that the conscious mind has rejected. Animals guarding a treasure can represent the brutish passions which may prevent you from realising your true spiritual potential.

Animals may also express certain qualities: For example, a dog may represent devotion, a cat may represent the intuition, a tiger may represent fear and a pig may symbolise gluttony and bad behaviour. Sometimes animals can represent other people i.e. we often describe people with animal images: sly as a fox, slippery as a fish, a lying snake, strong as an ox etc.

Animals Dream Meaning Mystical Meaning:

To dream of an animal was considered to be an omen for the future. Peaceful cows and bulls were considered particularly good omens but try hard never to dream of crocodiles, dogs or cats for these bring troubles.

In the Far East, to dream of a green monkey means that a medicine will not work. Indeed to even think about a green monkey while taking a medicine stops it working. Next time you take a medicine try NOT thinking about a green monkey- it’s impossible of course!

    I had a dream where i was gifted a new breed of dog(by my family) but while my dog stayed with my family while i was on a trip my family and people who worked for my dad other than my grandmother (she was on my side) started to make fun of the dog and started to break its legs and trying hurt and kill it. I got back from vacation while they were hurting the dog and i managed to get it back from one person and started to run. I accidentally let go of the dog and they managed to get the dog and hurt it more. I got it back after they had already hurt it more and run in a direction that got me trapped between cars and then i woke up. DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS>

    I have dreamt of a different animal for the past five nights. The animal seems to be wild but also my pet. I can pet them or hold them but they attack my other animals like a mountain growling as I pet it but then when out of my sight it attacks my dogs. What does this mean? And why am I dreaming of a different animal every night.

    My dream featured a duck that I loved so much. I think it has something to do with missing my pet dog of 15 years and that I lost 3 months ago. The night before I had a dream of a horse that was a gift from my parents. My father has passed 4 yrs ago. Both dream were a first and very peaceful.

      The animals in your dreams represent your feelings for animals and people you have lost. Your feeling express themselves in a gentle way through your dreams.

    Hello, I have had this particular dream a couple times so I am officially curious. I dream I am in a zombie situation like the television show “The Walking Dead) there is a direction that I hear and sometimes see giving direction. In my dreams though the zombies are real and I keep hiding from them in this room but something always forces me out. I end up being chased on horseback and my zombie pursuer is also on horseback and the pursuer keeps getting closer so I turn around and hold on to the Pursuer’s horse’s nose band until we come to a turn then I (in an act of desperation) push/pull the pursuing horse and rider into traffic and the pursuers get hit by a van and I turn in time to see the horse get hit and die. In next sequence, It is dark and this nightmare scene unfolds and it is just the director and a “monster” and I see my chance to escape from the area while the monster is distracted so I run and the director spots me and sends monster after me and the dream ends…

    I dreamt of having pet alligators in my home. My family was there, including my mother and grandmother whom are both deceased. I was trying to free the alligators, but they did not want to leave. There were babies all the way to adult alligators. There were about six total and they were green just like a normal alligator.

    Nice insight. I had a dream about Lizards last night, what’s the meaning of that?

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Sep 12, 2014, 10:07 pm

      Lizards are sometimes a symbol of rejuvenation as they can regrow their tails. A lizard eating its tail is a symbol of eternity.
