Werewolf Dreams

Similar to the portrayal in  literature, folklore and films, werewolves appear the same in our dreams. You know these harry, shapeshifting beasts, usually comprising of half human half wolf with extraordinary superpowers.

The werewolf loves nothing more than to chase the dreamer until a point they end up attacking or biting them. The lack of introspection in ones live only enhances the fear that will be projected on the wolf.

What does a werewolf symbolize?

We hate to break the news to you but the wolf is a manifestation of you. Or the you that you don’t want to recognize within yourself. You see, whenever the dreamer remains ignorant into their own behaviors and lifestyles the werewolf will rear its ugly head.

By in large the werewolf in your dream symbolizes a duel aspect of the dreamers personality, suggesting there is an inner struggle between the forces of good and evil. An unconscious battles that hopes the dreamer defeats its negative transformation. 

The hidden meaning behind the werewolf dream

These beastly creatures mirror your inability to control your impulses and desires in a multiplicity of forms beyond the physical. Suggesting that these sorts of cravings end up changing who you are as a person.

During times of struggle in one’s life the dreamer projects on the werewolf its own aggressions and frustrations showing a lack of ability to control these urges or addictions.

  1. The werewolf offers a form of fullest expression of self with no memory or responsibility for their actions.
  2. Man’s animalistic nature, “alpha male” role in domination and his ability to assert oneself in society.
  3. An inability to control sexual impulse or addictions ie. drugs, alcohol, lust
  4. It’s close association with the VAMPIRE the werewolf can be seen as negative person who depletes positive energy.

  6. he werewolf offers a form of fullest expression of self with no memory or responsibility for their actions.
  7. Females who might dream of the werewolf might be classified under a fantasy or fear of being dominated or controlled by this primitive masculine energy; or a symbol to integrate this force within oneself for protection.
