bull dream meanings

Bull Dream Meanings

The dream may indicate the presence or lack of presence of aggressiveness.

It is time to take a good look in the mirror. Have you been too aggressive to someone you love or care for recently? If so, you need to be more careful! You may be driving them away. Do you need to show more assertion in the workplace? Are people there treating you badly or taking advantage of your niceness? A bull in your dream is often an indicator that you feel more competitive than usual about something. It represents a feeling of subdued aggression which can burst out any time! It may also indicate frustration of feeling alone in some sort of struggle in your life – that people have deserted you at a time of need. A dream with a bull also exemplifies stubbornness in your life. You need to reflect being more assertive, regardless of the risk of seeming pushy. The dream may also be an indicator of repressed sexual feelings – a desire for some type of sexual pleasure.

If so, you will need to take a stand! Make it known to the people around you that you mean business and that you aren’t a pushover! It may even be time to ask for a raise or a promotion! Oftentimes, bosses just need to be reminded that you are aggressive in tackling your work and that you feel like you need to be compensated better for all your extra work. From a symbolic perspective, bulls represent “strength and understanding” I like to relate this dream to our inner strength. Seeing a bull in a dream can be a sign that you will be able to focus in life in order to progress. This dream is about confidence and making sure that your dreams are clear. The dream of bulls can cover many elements.

Bulls are essentially an “uncastrated male species of cattle.” If the bull is castrated, then it ceases to be a bull and becomes a bullock, ox, or steer. In real life, bulls are very aggressive and contain wild energy. I know when walking my dog, a few bulls tried to attack me. They are aggressive and know what they want. If you observed the bull chasing you outside, it indicates that you need to think about how you conduct your life. If the bull is provoked, they will always strike with rage. Dreaming about bulls could be a representation of the feelings deep inside you which are normally dragged out by other people’s behavior and reactions. A long time ago, I had a dream of a bull when I was having problems with a work colleague. Often, our dreams are inspired suggestions that we can use to remedy daily situations. Rather like mini vacations and at times they can include both positive and negative symbols. The bull is about awakening our aggression and anger.

They can also represent sexual desires and urges, according to Sigmund Freud. If you have passion without control, there is a possibility that you will have a dream about bulls.

Quick bull dream interpretation

To dream of taking the bull by the horns also means that you need to take better control of your life. Take an aggressive yet positive stand on the issues that you are confronting. You are the master of your own soul and sometimes life just needs to be grabbed by the collar and shook for loose change. Be a bull-y sometimes! Life sometimes calls for it! A bull in the farm, field, or countryside often symbolizes the feeling of naturalness, peace, and tranquility. You may need to take a retreat and get back to your roots if you feel like you are being too aggressive in life. Remember that rest is also an essential part of being productive!

A Spanish bull fight may mean a lot of very different things. If you are the matador it may mean that you are dodging some of the responsibilities in your life.

Are you sure your projects are achievable? Are they worth the time and effort you are putting into them? If you are an observer in a Spanish bull fight, it may mean that it is time for an adventure. Do something more fun and exotic! Waking life doesn’t need to be all about success and aggression towards achieving the things you want. Life is too short for that! Take time to smell the flowers and enjoy the scenery on your path of life.
