Antlers

Dreaming about antlers

Supernatural powers, fertility and nobleness of spirit are represented by antlers. An attribute of the primeval horned god and his lust for life, they suggest power over nature. Psychologically these represent awareness of the potential for conflict between our nobler self and the baser instincts. The antler with ten points is the mark of the shaman or holy man. The deer is a noble animal, so the explanation differs if the antlers are mounted, as in a trophy, or are seen on the animal. If the latter, then the meaning is that of something that is supernormal and they may represent intellectual powers. If the former, then they may be interpreted as attempting to achieve high status. Antlers in dreams may always be considered to represent virility and sexual prowess, whether in a mans or womans dream. Consult the entry for horns to enhance your understanding of your dream.
When you are seeing antlers in your dream, is representative of masculine sexuality, male aggression and assertiveness. It may also be symbolic of a trophy.
Because they are the growth and protective tools of some male herbivores, they may represent conflict between males or protection of the woman the male often links with bold and powerful masculinity and sexuality in a natural and potent form they can also suggest supernatural power when worn by shaman's or in initiatory rituals also because they are the sign of a male seeking a mate they might be linked with power over nature and fertility they can also be seen as a wall trophy of the hunt for a woman. Or just as a sign of male prowess they are also a sharp and defensive weapon, either against other males or to herd females the following dream by a woman is obviously about her feelings about mating example: the three of us were on our way to a lively night out and suggested a short cut through richmond park suddenly this old man stepped out and advised us not to do so as stags were rutting thanked him and replied they would be too busy to care about us as we walked through, trying to ignore the fact the stags seemed to be stuck together, we felt relieved suddenly an enormously big stag with tremendous horns and a leering and vicious expression came swaying toward us after breaking free of a female deer jasmine c nt ” ?in the trois freres cave in france, a man wrapped in an animal hide is playing a primitive flute as if he meant to put a spell on the animals in the same cave, there is a dancing human being, with antlers, a horse's head, and bear's paws this figure, dominating a medley of several hundred animals, is unquestionably the ?lord of the animals. The further back we go in time, or the more primitive and close to nature the society is, the more literally such titles must be taken a primitive chief is not only disguised as the animal; when he appears at initiation rites in. Full animal disguise, he is the animal still more, he is an animal spirit at such moments he incorporates or represents the ancestor of the tribe and the clan, and therefore the primal god himself he represents, and is, the 'totem. Animal thus we probably should not go far wrong in seeing in the figure of the dancing animal man in the trois freres cave a kind of chief who has been transformed by his disguise into an animal demon. Quoted from man and his symbols by jung the following dream is about a woman seeking the spirit of manhood to carry her off you helped me a bit with my dream in my dream was in a forest, and in front of me was a herd of deer they all ran away except for a single stag suddenly was beside it, and in my head asked if he wanted me to ride him saw his eyes and then and climbed on his back as soon as grabbed on to his antlers he ran off with me the next dream is an encounter with the energy we have within us that is our inner animal but it is communicating you must not go this way until your personality dies death is a part of initiation because the usual human person cannot open to the enormous world of the unconscious because they are frightened of it, and so have to die to become a different person dreamed that was driving my car on the highway and saw a huge moose on the road so stopped, hoping the moose would move then all of a sudden the moose charged at me (at this moment thought: i?m going to die), then the moose charged right through my windshield with its antlers went flying back with glass exploding everywhere, and then woke up the next dream is an example of this death and its transformation there was another big hill, but this one was covered with vines, grass, and tree bark maybe half a foot deep was watching a bunch of elk with weird antlers eating when noticed a big ball of fog roll in it was at the bottom of the hill, which was connected to the ocean the fog turned into what looked like dandelion seeds and they multiplied by the thousands until it was a solid, floating mass that not even air could fit between it started spreading toward me, so tried to run up the hill couldn’t, though, because of all the forest debris in the way…it was like quicksand then some seeds got into my lungs, populated, and suffocated me then died and somehow transformed into an elk and started eating grass the following is an attempted interpretation the ocean is that from which our life has sprung, and so it is the source of the enormous urge to promulgate see the dream as a way of illustrating your desire to attain and to meet with the extraordinary urge to promulgate, to populate when you realised the cloud was too much for you to deal with you tried to climb above it but the bark was in the way see the bark as all the thinking and words you have collected and are bogged down by like words they are lifeless protective things that fall away you tried to grow or rise by thinking or trying to hard but then you died because the seeds suffocated you the path you are trying to walk is up the hill toward a greater awareness but death is a necessary part of that your personality that has been raised on words and thinking has to die to make way for growth this type of death is like the spider that sheds its skin because it has grown too tight so death is like recognition that we have grown as far as we can in our present mind state that mind state has to die to give birth to another one and then you meet and become your totem animal this is very much a native american dream theme, and according to tradition it means moose represents self esteem and is also about the magick of life and death late autumn and early winter is her cycle of power.
