Out of all lions, the lioness is more likely to kill humans, but the recorded instances of lion attack in real life are mild compared to tigers. Female lions represent that you are feeling isolated in a relationship. Maybe you have to always be the strong one? In order to understand this dream I like to look at the facts. At the age of between three to four years, the female and male lions are ready for mating. The gestation period for the female is four months after which, she will give birth to her young ones away from the rest of the pack. And for the first six weeks, the young ones will be hidden away. When they are born, the cubs normally weigh around 1.5 kilograms. Thus, spiritually this can indicate that you are feeling someone is dependent on you. As you see the lioness as attacking it can mean that someone dependent on you may cause you problems and confusion.

If the small cubs attacked each other in the dream this can imply moving away from difficulties or problems that could occur in your day to day life.
