Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

Jackals are warning symbols from a dream and indicate judgment, ill health, and taking care of your family.

When you see a jackal in a dream knows that this is time that you need to be on guard or protective.

The Egyptian God Anubis had the head of a jackal and made judgments on people’s souls before they entered into the underworld.

His discretion indicated their purity and directed them on their path in the afterlife. Many cultures have a protective view of the jackal as well and because of this the jackal in a dream is considered a warning animal.

In this dream you may have

  • Seen a jackal.
  • Seen the head of a jackal.
  • Been chased by a jackal.
  • Seen a jackal feeding.

Positive changes are afoot if

  • The jackal was featured in the dream trying to talk to you.

Detailed dream meaning

The totem of the jackal is also often linked with Anubis and because of this the message is one of mystery, judgment, guilt, and peace. When you see or talk to a jackal in a dream understand that your psyche is sending you a strong message about your own soul and your actions should be paid attention to at this time. The dream of the jackal is one that says that you need to pay attention to your direction at this time and question your own actions and motivations.

If you see a jackal feeding off of bones or a person in a dream this is a warning to watch those that are trying to ride in on your glory and at this time in your life you are likely faced with the difficulties of another. Clarity and focus and true intentions in your own heart at this time will allow you the flexibility to proceed in a goal you are trying to reach. Specifically it can also be a warning sign of someone trying to take advantage of you or one that is hiding the whole truth.

The jackal is a symbol of mystery, spiritual awareness, and higher power. Your own heart is judged and you know the truth of your feelings but you are likely holding back when you see a jackal in your dream. It carries heavy connotations that if you are not acting true at this time then you are going to be found out. Now is not a time of your life that you should be hiding as the truth will come out.

Sometimes the jackal can also be a bad omen warning of death or illness as well. Take health issues seriously at this time.

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

  • Being taken advantage of.
  • Someone lying to you.
  • Not having true intentions.
  • Feeling guilty.
  • Death and sickness.
  • Feeling protective for someone.
