I often dream of various animals, cats, dogs, snakes, scorpions etc. There's meaning behind all things in the astral plane, but is it right to say that I can associate an animal with a certain wisdom, such as the shamanistic concept of a medicine, or totem, and use such an interpretation as a jumping off point to comprehend the dream? And, do or can we have animals that represent aspects of us, or could this be us remembering our various animal lives of old?

Is it wrong to explore the wisdom of animals when we seek to escape our own animal nature, or is the perspective from behind their eyes worth examining?

Another question. I understand that in the Bible, it discusses Solomon explaining many things concerning animals to his court. Any thoughts on the deeper meaning behind this?


Thank you for your insight. I understand that St. Francis of Assisi spoke with animals. Surely God's wisdom is in all life, though in a lesser form than the sublime teachings of the angels. The concept of learning from our silent brothers whether in wake or dream intrigues me.

Truly, animals are our siblings, and we have a great responsibility to care for them, work with them, and benefit from what they offer. Nevertheless, in terms of knowledge, from animals, one can only learn what is animal. We are interested in becoming human. For that, one has to learn human knowledge, which no animal has access to.

Animals in dreams generally represent our own inner animal elements, or represent those elements in others. A spider represents a sneaky person who is setting a trap. A scorpion represents a person with a hidden poison (the tail) that can hurt us unexpectedly; yet, a scorpion can also represent a person of the sign of Scorpio. A dog can be a person of the Asian astrological sign, or our own instinctual animal nature. So you see, every animal has many potential meanings. That is why one needs to develop a lot of intuition.
