Hedgehog Dream Meaning and Interpretation


Last Updated on

Hedgehog Dream Symbol – If you have a hedgehog appear in your dream it may indicate that you or someone you know is easily irritated or offended at the actions of others. This dream may be telling you to relax and let go of some of your stress.

Hedgehog DreMHedgehogs can also represent a vulnerable part of ourselves and a part that likes to withdraw when things are too complicated or start heating up. The dream might be telling you to put yourself out there more and don’t be afraid of failing at the things you do.

Sometimes when we withdraw from the world it can make us feel isolated and secluded from those who love us.

Seeing a  hedgehog can indicate that there is something that is bothering you that you need to address in your waking life. It could be a family member or friend who has been doing something that you do not agree with.

When hedgehog wanders into your dreams you may be over sensitive and overreacting to every little thing. Are you misreading what others say to you or their intentions? What makes you prickly? Do you take things too personally?

Hedgehog can be a symbol of loyalty and integrity. It can also be a warning that you have lost your true self. By behaving defensively, you hurt those who care when there is no need to feel guilty. Why are you driving others away? Why do you feel guilty? Do you have reason to feel guilt or do you use it as an excuse? Do you act with integrity? Do you doubt someone’s loyalty and integrity?

When Hedgehog crosses your path

When hedgehog crosses your path you may feel that no one understands you. This is a reminder to not take things to heart or misinterpret what others say to you. Remember, others cannot always see with your perspective.

Questions to Ask Yourself

  • Is there anything that has easily offended you in the past that you need to get over?
  • Do you know anyone who is constantly being irritated at the smallest things?
  • Does the hedgehog represent any aspect of yourself that you are aware of?

  1. Good day, kindly assist with the interpretation of this dream. I dreamt that there was a fire around the area that I had parked my car in. As I was trying to close the windows of the car a burnt hedghog came towards me. At first I hopped into the car bcoz I thought that it would prick me, but then I noticed that it was actually wanting me to help it.

  2. I had a dream the other day about my male hedgehog and in the dream I went to clean the cage like I do everyday and he had at least 5 baby hedgehogs in the cage and my hedgehog was very angry. I moved him out of his cage and took the baby hedgehogs out of the cage they were in to clean it. When I wen to put them back in the cage they were all over my backyard and I had to find them before my parents cats got to them. I found them all but when I got back to my room to put the babies in the cage. My hedgehog’s cage was on its side and he trapped in between the cage wall and the wheel.

  3. I had a strange very clear dream last night where I was holding a tame hedgehog who was completely calm and very cute and I decided to keep it as a pet so I made up my old rabbits hutch with some straw and put the hedgehog in there. The hedgehog was very happy and went to sleep in the hay but when I can back his home had been invaded by several rabbits some of which had just had a litter of baby rabbits! At first I couldn’t see the hedgehog but he was covered in straw in the corner still sleeping. I felt very protective over all of my little animals but was worried about how I could house them all so the hedgehog still had a home too! Very rare I remember my dreams so would love know if it has any meaning

  4. Hi Stephen, I am trying to interpret a dream I had last night it would be great if you could give me some tips. I have been keeping a dream journal and I’m very interested in understanding my dreams. I dreamt I was in my bed in my bedroom which was not in a house but the middle of the wild and there were hippo’s grazing in the grass near by. Someone handed me a match box and when I opened it there was a tiny hedgehog squashed into it. He had white fluffy hair! I thought he was dead but when I touched him he looked at me with his little brown eyes. I thought he was adorable and fragile and in need of tlc. I held him, then my son asked could he hold him. And next thing realised he dropped him. I panicked as the hippo’s started trampling through my bedroom and i wanted to find him before he was stood on. I started looking everywhere. But he was so tiny and the carpet was fluffy and dirty and I couldn’t find him anywhere. I was still desperately searching until I woke up.

  5. I had a dream that one appeared in the corner of my bedroom so I tried to carefully take it outside put it poked me a lot and I felt the pain in my dream. What does that mean? Thanks you if you can help! 🙂

    I woke up this morning after having a dream about a lovely hedgehog I was keeping as a pet in my office at work. It followed me around like a puppy would and sat happy in the corner eating cucumber! What are your thoughts on this ?

  7. Dear Stephen,

    Please note that I would be happy if you can interpret the following dream:
    In a sunny day, me and my cousin were crossing the road in my small village and encountered on our left a flock of white geese and in front of us a group of 4 Hedgehogs.
    Thank u and regards!
