Panther Dream Interpretation and Meaning


Panther Dream Symbol – To see a panther in your dream can represent a powerful and protective presence in your life. Panther’s can indicate a fierce and aggressive personality that you might have. Panthers are very powerful animals and can also signal power, grace, and beauty in your life.

If a panther is stalking you in the dream, it can indicate you have enemies that are lurking in the distance. These enemies might be people you know who are spreading negative energy towards you.

Panther embodies power, courage, strength, and protectiveness. She can represent your fierce personality that fights for your rights and the rights of others. Panther can come to remind you to act with wisdom if you want to move forward. Alternatively, she can bring warnings of deceit of how others are trying to use you. Who could this be? Look closer before taking action. Protect yourself from the poison of others.

If attacked by a panther, it can mean people are slandering you, but if you kill a panther the accusations will prove to be false. A growling panther brings bad news and a panther threatening you can mean business problems. Fighting a panther can mean you will overcome any challenges caused by your enemies. Being stalked by a panther may mean your enemies lurk close by and may be spreading negativity about you. It is time to take a closer look at those you trust and hold dear. Protect yourself and have the courage to take action.

When Panther crosses your path

Panther crosses your path to remind you are protected. Do not be afraid. Stand tall in your truth with courage as you will not fail.

Black Panther

pantherThe black panther is one of the rarest animals in the wild. A black panther is a good omen and can indicate luck that will enter your life. These animals blend into the night and are fearless. The black panther can also indicate the lack of fear you have to the dangers around you.

It is rare to see a black panther in the wild. There a few left in the world. Fearless creatures, they are elusive and invisible in the night blending into their surroundings. Black Panther’s appearance in your dreams may mean you see yourself as invisible to others although you are outgoing. You may need to be more open with your communication to feel more included. Maybe your fierce focus and drive scare people away.

Or, maybe you are acting fearlessly in the face of emotional danger if Black Panther dreams leave you feeling confident and focused. It depends on how the dream makes you feel and the other things occurring in the dream on the meanings.

Maybe Black Panther visits when you live in fear. Fear of situational outcomes, people, life, success. Get the picture. We all have things that worry us.

Learn to give them minimal attention to achieve good outcomes. Is someone threatening you? Are you being bullied at work, on social media, or in life in general? Instead of wasting perfectly good energy on others’ toxic agendas, use Black Panther’s fearlessness to take the action you need to end it.

Although Black Panther cuts a frightening figure, she is no threat unless she feels under attack. Her message may be you have nothing to fear from what worries you unless you threaten what or who you fear in some way.

When Black Panther crosses your path

Black Panther visits to remind you to walk your path without fear. She teaches how to stand up to what and who makes you live in fear so you can move forward with integrity.

  2. In the garden my four children were staring at something that I couldn’t see, they froze as if scared, I traced their eyes to something behind the small round conifer in the middle flower border and walked to see what was there my heart stopped as a small black panther growled and I pointed to the kids to walk back thinking that it was going to pounce on me any minute now as I was now the neatest, it looked at me, it had beautiful green eye and was not interested in attacking me but just crossed my path and walked off into the field, I woke up breathless, it was so real. I don’t know what it meant.

    I dreamt that I entered a shack that sold veggies, fruits, baskets, things created by the people who live there. When I entered I was with my husband and say: “Look! A kitty!” It was at first a small cat, grayish to white and black lines. It looks at me and my hubby and runs to us, as it gets closer it slowly turns into a white tiger cub (which happens to be my favorite feline, white tigers. I love felines) and it circles my husband and I but it purs and rubs onto us. I beging to walk inside searching for stuff and I see from a far that a black panther is looking at me from between the different selling stalls. I get a little disturbed cause it’s huge and I didn’t want to disturb her, so I control my senses and affirmatively continue. I see some cilantro which I love and grab some to take with me, as I lift my head foward, I see her between the two stalls looking directly to my eye’s I got disturbed again like: “I don’t want to make her mad and let it attack me.” I said to my self, so I concentrate and affirmatively continue down some wide stairs to where I knew she would be. I continued calmly and affirmative, as I see from the corner of my eye that she slowly runs to me and lifts her front paws and falls over my self. People gasped in surprise like if it were to attack me as I fell because of it’s weight. I lift her paws and push her aside so I could continue to go down the stairs. She again, jumps on top of me as if giving a hug, so all I do is let loose and rub my head on her chest and hug her huge and heavy body. She strongly pues as my head goes up her neck and under her head and she licks me and I just scratched her, look at her smilling and tell her it’s time for me to go. So I lift myself up and continued to my husband (who is shocked and surrounded by others shocked), I smile at him and we leave. I woke up so empowered and happy and like in love with my dream… beautiful really.

  4. i had a very strange dream with a black panther in it. i was i guess i was doing stuff with this guy i has just met and we became friends. The panther didn’t attack or anything. it was always near or next to me and i think i even pet him/her. this was the first time I’d ever dream of a black panther

  5. I woke up but couldn’t move and at the end of my bed was a black panther . Scared to death I tried to move but I was so scared that All I could do was , think to myself Holy shit . After I had the balls to slowly put the cover over my face I kept peering over my blanket to see the creature and it was moving . I could hear it breathing , and Everytime I put the cover over my eyes and removed the blanket to get a look at it …. It was still their. Scared out of my mind I pulled the covers over my eyes for the last time laying breathlessly untill I finally woke up

    I dreamed last night about me waking up in an old house I used to live in as a kid. I woke up out of my old bed and looked in the doorway to see the head of a black panther staring at me. I was terrified. It walked back out of the house and I woke up with my heart beating out of my chest
