Dream Interpretation- Animals in Dreams


http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/06/dream-interpretation-animals-in-dreams/

When we have animals in our dreams it’s usually about our pets.  However it is not uncommon to dream about an animal that is not your pet or may not even be a pet.  Here are some interpretations for some of the not so common animals we may have seen in our dreams.

Alligator- alligators are said to be symbols of treachery, deceit and hidden instincts.  However alligators can also mean healing powers and qualities.

Apes symbolize deception, mischievousness and falsehood.  Apes also symbolize our wild inner sexual natures.

Bats have several different interpretations.  Some believe that bats are bad omens.  A bat can mean lack of cleanliness, demons and annoyances.  A white bat means that a family member is going to die while a black bat signifies personal disaster.  The Chinese however believe that dreaming of 5 bats is good luck.  They feel that 5 bats mean good health, longevity, good fortune, prosperity and happiness.

A crocodile signifies hidden strength and power.  To dream about crocodiles means that you have to beware of people who want to bad advice and sway you into making bad decisions.

A dragon can mean your passion.  People who dream about dragons are said to be easily carried away by their passion and so they have to exercise self control.  If you dream about a fire breathing dragon then dream interpreters say that you are using anger to get your own way.  The Chinese see the dragon as a symbol of good luck and fortune.

Elephants in your dreams mean that you need to be patient with somebody.  Dream interpreters also ask the dreamer to examine their personality as the elephant’s introverted personality can be reflective of their own.  Elephants also signify hidden strength and power.

The horse symbolizes strong physical energy.  The horse is the symbol for virility, sensuality and sexual prowess.  This is why people who dream of riding horses are advised to examine their sex lives or lack of one.   To dream of a dead horse might mean that you will need to reexamine your relationship with another person.
