Dream Symbol: zoo
Consider what the zoo represents to you in the context of the particular dream, or what aspect of the zoo stood out as significant. Possible meanings include:
- The animals, habitats, and activities can represent the variety of things in your real life, such as people in your life, facets of your life, houses in a neighborhood, etc.
- A city, area, community, company, or other self-contained organization
- Chaos or the presence of lots of various activity
- Confinement, imprisonment, or separation from one's environment
- Pampering or an easy life
- The idea of exotic, foreign, or rare
If a particular animal, activity, or habitat (swamp, cave, trees) stands out, see also those separate symbols.
Using this Dream DictionaryTips to Understand Dream Meaning
Dream symbol meanings are different for each person. It's IMPORTANT to consider:
- Personal meaning - What the dream symbol means to you, what it reminds you of, how it makes you feel.
- Context - How the dream symbol appears in the dream. For example, in a dream about a bee - what was the bee doing, how and where it was doing it, and how did you feel about it?
- Look beyond the obvious - A dream is often about something other than its obvious meaning. Physical events in the dream commonly represent mental or emotional matters.
