Crow dream meaning

Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

Dreams about birds are usually considered to be good omens. There are a variety of birds you could dream about, but it is very unique and unusual to dream of a crow.

Crows are intelligent and instinctive, so a dream about a crow may reveal something about this side of you.

If you see a crow in your dream, it may represent this intelligence as long as it is flying free or roaming freely and is not in any danger of becoming prey. As it is very uncommon to dream of a crow, you have a special sort of wisdom and intuition that surpasses many other people. Trust the decisions you have been making recently. Your subconscious is telling you to lean on your logic and trust what you think is right.

In your dream you may have

  • Seen a live crow or a picture of a crow.
  • Become a crow.
  • Flown with a crow.
  • Seen a dead crow.
  • Been attacked by crows.
  • Seen either a caged or a free crow.

Positive changes are afoot if

  • The crow in your dream used intelligence.
  • The crow was flying.
  • The crow seemed to be a companion.
  • You turned into a crow and this seemed natural.

Detailed dream interpretation

Crows are considered by many scientists and bird experts to be an extremely intelligent animal. Crows have been known to act astonishingly human, and they escape their predators in ways that continue to astound us. A dream about a bird is usually considered to be a good omen, so a dream about a crow is a good omen concerning your intelligence.

If you become a bird in your dream, you may not be using enough wisdom or intelligence. As a crow in your dream, your subconscious wants you to try harder and educate yourself. Watch a documentary or read a novel. Make a commitment to learning a new word every day or teaching yourself a foreign language. Crows may also represent change, so a crow in your dream may be telling you to make a major change to better your intelligence level.

If there is a group of crows in your dream, your dream might be showing you that your wisdom and free will is too easily influenced by other people. You are acting as part of a group rather than recognizing your individual needs. Pay attention to yourself and your own intellectual needs. Maybe you have been giving out advice to others, even though you have been unable to accept advice yourself. Rather than trying to educate others and give out life lessons, try and educate yourself and see what you can learn.

If there is a crow with you or by your side throughout your dream, you are having trouble making your own decisions. You have a companion whose word you trust over all else, and, while this is healthy in moderation, you might want to branch out and expand your social circle. If your companion bird was caged, then you are an extremely emotional person. You rely on your emotion rather than your logic to make decisions. If the crow remains locked in the cage, or if the crow is killed, consider doing more research before you make life decisions. If the bird is set free, then you are doing the right thing by trusting your emotions and gut feelings over using your logic all of the time.

This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life

  • Major life decisions such as buying a home, investing, or entering into a relationship
  • Social life
  • Intelligence level
  • Education and school

Feelings that you may have encountered during a dream of crow
