Bull Dream Interpretation and Meaning

Share

For the ancients, the bull symbolized the creative power of spring, so the dream of a bull indicates fertility and sexual power.  The bull is also associated with the color red, and in some cultures, this represents the First Chakra or the material world. The bull represents the astrological sign of Taurus. People born in the sign of Taurus (April 22-May 22) are described as being “earthy” and in harmony with Nature; mentally, bodily, and spiritually strong; reliable, practical, and somewhat conservative. To dream of a bull may be associated with some Taurus person in your life.

The dream bull is often associated with fertility and strength. It may indicate success in a love affair. The bull is not typically a negative dream symbol, but it may represent someone or something in your waking life that is associated with aggressiveness, virility, or practicality. It could mean that it would benefit you to have some of the qualities and strength of the bull or indicate that you should “tame” your bull-like energies.

Ancient cultures considered the bull to be sacred, and in Persia, the cult of Mithras used bulls as sacrifices to god. In Christianity, the bull is a symbol of both brute force and the “earthy” nature of human life. For other ancient cultures, the bull represented the procreative power of the male, or the power of Nature or God manifested in action. Many hero myths involve confrontations with and overcoming a bull. symbolizing the victory of humanity over savage instinct. The modern Spanish bullfight is linked to this tradition.

Seeing a bull in a dream usually indicates wealth and power, expansiveness, and the chance for a rich life. You may dream of a bull during periods when you are thinking about financial matters. If so, it is a good omen, indicating that you will find wealth. It indicates that although you must work for a long time to reach a goal, you will have the energy to do so and will ultimately succeed.

Because the bull symbolizes stubbornness, to dream of a bull can also mean that you are being “bull-headed” in some way and should consider compromising a bit more in a certain circumstance.

The activity of the bull in your dream is important. If a bull is chasing you, it symbolizes jealous business competitors and business difficulties. If you dream of a person being gored by a bull, it suggests that you are using another’s possessions in an unwise manner and will experience some misfortune associated with your actions. If the bull in your dream is angry and raging, it foretells of financial problems linked to impulsive investments or spending.

  • It doesn't really fit my dream exactly. I had a dream that the bull was looking over at me like we were familiar. He ran over and we hugged. It was the longest, powerful and happy hug I've felt in a long time. We didn't want to leave each other and travelled together. Do you have any insight into this? I can't find anything on the friendliness of a bull. Thank you

    • Rebecca. Tonight I just had the same kind of dream where the bull and I hugged for a long time with love. I don't know what it means yet but I will pay attention to what develops in my life next and hopefully be able to tell you. Do you know what it means 3 years later?

  • In my dream... the bull was only attacking people that were running. He never attacked me and I wasn't afraid. The bull only gored another animal....something that looked like a large llama. I had this dream for what seemed to be all night.
