Black Cat In Dreams

Anytime we dream of a black cat crossing our path we automatically think it represents some sort of bad luck or even death. The unfortunate stigma of cultural and historical myths, dreams, superstitions, and tales that make them either revered or feared.

Black Cats like to appear in our Dreams to inform the dreamer about their hidden potential, creativity, intuition, emotions, feminine energy and psychic abilities. The black cat encourages you to find out how to make this magical power within you known. However, this might not always be the case for the dreamer who are either attacked or bitten by these felines.
