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. Panthers 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. The panther can come to remind you to act with wisdom if you want to move forward. Alternatively, she can bring warnings of the 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, panthers 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 of 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 maybe 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.

  1. Hi. Look, the dream was as clear as water. Yet, I don’t know what it means. Even though it was a vivid dream which I could move, ride a car, interact on it.
    I’ve got a baby panther as a pet. Don’t know who gave it to me. I was riding a car and I was talking to my deceased cousin. But earlier than that, my girlfriend had come round to pick me up. And I saw that she had crashed earlier. But nothing on the outside of the car was damaged. In fact, only the front right door. Like a struggle with the door cover panel. I told her what had happened she just said.. ok ok ok…
    My cub panther was 1 week old or so and as the dream went by, it had grown as big as a half sized pitbull. Anyhow, at first, it took me a bit of time to bond with the animal. However, later on, the panther was cuddling with me , kinda like a dog sleeps in someone’s leg with their head lied on my right leg. Another scene was when As it grew bigger and bigger, I decided that the best way was to sent the panther to a reserve, protected area.
    The last thing I saw was when I was moving from the back of the house to the front. Where I saw my pet panther sleeping in the front porch with my other dogs. And as I turn my head opposite, to the front entrance door, I saw the gate open and I saw a friend’s car outside. He was there. And the I woke up…
    Anyone has an idea what it means. I’d appreciate it.

    Hi, I’m been having very vivid dreams lately about things I haven’t dreamt about before (at least not that I remember)
    Last night I had a dream about a giant black panther (it was as tall as me sitting down and massive) it lived in a huge cage with a lady who took care of it very well, the panther seemed happy, then it was my turn to look after it but I didn’t want it in the cage so I called it over and it jumped out of the cage and cuddled up to me as I pet it, it was happy and rubbing its head into my hand as I was doing this, then I woke up, I’m not sure what this means, maybe it has something to do with my new career choice? I’m not sure

  3. I don’t really remember most of my dreams but last night I dreamed that I had a panther in my room, like a pet. I would go in and out freely and the panther was fine with that but once I opened the door with someone behind me the panther pounced. I had the panther for several days (I assume) and it never did anything to harm me.

  4. I had strange dream last night. Ive never dreamed of panthers or the like. Any case. I was at a grocery store and decided to sit on a bench on one of the isles facing a parking lot. (Dream physics right?) From behind the bench a black panther walked towards my leg wide eyed staring at me. I put its paw on my hand and kept patting at it and would lowers its head. I could feel the abbraisive pads of its paw as well as the sharp claws lightly scratching my hand as it patted. I figured it wanted to be petted, so I did so. As such, it got on the bench and sat next to me stared out the lot as I did. Almost like a dog, I just put my arm arround it and petted its head. I could feel the vibrations as I heard it pur. I got up and told it that I had to leave. It just stood up on the bench and starred wide eye as if it wanted to go. I just said fine then and turned my back. It jumped on my back like a child. I carried it hind legs behind so as not to get my sides cut up. I was also afraid it would just unintentionally eviscerate my sides and shoulder. I would just hear it pur as it looked around the lot like a happy child. I got to my car and let it down. I opened up the back seat and tilted my head to signal it to go in. I rolled down the window a bit. As I cloed the door it perked its head out and squinted as I pet it. I remember saying to it,” How are we going to explain this?”. I the got in and looked back at it as it peeked out the window. I then asked,” You’re not gonna try and kill me or anything while we’re on the road or anything right?”. Half joking but paranoid. It just turned from the window and layed down and close its eye for a nap.
    I know it sounds silly, but I find it very curious of a dream. I dont know what to make of it. Any thoughts?

  5. My dream started out in my home town (I used to live in the country) I was camping alone and kind of scarred but I wasn’t too far from my aunts if I happened to need anything, I was in my tent and something in the back of my mind told me to zip up my tent so I did. I was about to turn off the lantern when I seen a shadow outside my tent and some how there was a giant opening in the top of the tent that appeared out of nowhere and a full grown black panther jumped from the tree branch and into my tent, it looked like it had something in its mouth but then that disappeared again and the black panther started to talk to me telling me there were more of them and that they would be back for me, to tell my mom ( she is an avid hunter) that she could have all the chains and traps that she could possibly imagine but it would not do any good. I ran to my aunts house and called my fiance who was at my mom’s and told him what happened and that I was afraid, he told my mom and then my dad ( my dad isn’t in good health right now but was halthy in my dream) he came to get me on the fourwheeler which got stuck at the end of the drive and I went to help when we seen two black figures running at us, I hopped on the fourwheeler and got us going to my aunts but we were chased, I pulled out my gun but it turned into my using my finger and thumb to make a prentend gun and I was still trying to shoot whatever was chasing me and come to find out it was two black dogs so I took off my belt and used it like a whip to scare them away. My mom finally came down to my aunts and we told her what had happened but she didn’t want to believe me and then I woke up. Sorry for the long post but I would love to find out what it means. I have never had a dream about an Black Panther much less a dream where and animal talks to me.

  6. This is the first time I’ve ever dreamed about a Panther. I’m going to keep it as short and simple as I can. “As I was walking in the use to be woods, trees was cut down…but as I was walking I spotted the panther, its eyes was on another target. So I’m like oh s***! I was excited because I’ve never seen one before. Very beautiful I must say. So the panther started easing it’s way towards me, therefore I became the pray. It charged at me, I didn’t run… After it bit me a few times I tried getting it. The panther assumed I was trying to attack it back but I was only running its head. But me like a few more times on my hand, because I didn’t give up on trying to make it my friend. So i picked up some dirt and threw one at it and it sniffed it and ate the dirt. Im like ok, now I see that you are hungry and like dirt I’ll feed you more. Thing is all the dirt that was around why didn’t it eat off the ground but will eat it out of my hand??? So we became friends we started chasing things and people for fun… I couldn’t keep up with the panther standing straight up running as a human. But after I start running on all 4 I was keeping up. It was almost as if the panther was teaching me its way as if it was it’s youngin or something. IDK. But it was pretty cool after I made peace with it.

  7. This is the second time I have dreamt of a panther in a very long time. The difference between the last dream was that the panther didn’t attack me. In both dreams it’s stalking me aggressively and I am running away from it. In this dream it manages to get to me and it hugs me and at first I was scared but the hug felt warm and I felt like I knew the panther, for a moment i swear it was purring but then after it started sinking it’s claws from its left claw into my back. And I told it “owe! that hurts. stop!”and I got away from it like a feet or two and it didn’t chase me it just looked at me. Then the dream ended; I woke up.

  8. hello, i have great magical positive energy, i am fighting for a house i inherited, against real negative people, involved in dark witchcraft, of the negative kind. i have won all lawsuits, and finally after many years i have asked the people renting my house to give me the rent. because i have bought the house. that same night a big panther came to me. it looked like it wanted to attack me, but it didn’t scare me at all. because i love animals. and i petted it’s huge head. and she just rested her head on me like a puppy. full of love and tenderness. i really don’t know what this means? my aunt is really evil and capable of killing me. but i face her with no fear. thank you in advance

  9. I just dreamt a black panther attacked me. I was very badly injured. I managed to fight enough that she stopped attacking me and ran off. I could even feel my injuries in my sleep, I felt the pain. Lately, this year, I have had people slandering me online. I’ve mostly been ignoring it. So that’s an interesting interpretation of my dream.

    • I had a dream about a black panther last night during the corona virus pandemic. She was fighting a horse right in front of me. I was inside my of my car. I was scared but knew I was safe.

  10. i had a dream that i came from abroad and i was at a train station and there were zome panthers roaming on the side railings and everyone on the station was so normal about it but i was a bit affraid and i then walked out of the station and when i turned around i saw a black panther he was not fully grown and he was calm and curious about me and then he puts my left arm in his mouth and started to increase the biting force and he was checking me like if i can handle this force and i was not scared any more i was trying to fight through that pain but wasnt scared and after going to a limit he stopped and gave me my hand back, later he was friendly and after that another more mature and grown panther was comming towards me in a bit of angry way and the smaller panther was trying to tell him that i am the good one and he dont need to hurt me but the big panther ignored it and keept coming towards me, and he bit my left hand in the same way slowly increasing biting force but this one was strong and i actually felt the pain, then he also left like he doesnt have anything to do with me and in both cases my hand had their teeth marks but not injury and yes there was pain but i wasnt scared nor i tried to get my hand back from their mouth… this is really confusing but if anyone can clear it it would be really helpful.. thank you.

  11. I saw a black panther in my dream, I was scared at first cause I thought it wanted to hurt me so I kept running away from them, until I was face to face with a baby panther but it did not attack me, it kinda played with me, until I injured it by mistake.
    what does it mean?

  15. Ive been having the same dream for about a week about a black panther attacking me and im beginning to get worried.

  16. Sandeebaebee on

    My black panther crossed my path and it’s fur matted with blood , it was missing it’s back left leg

  17. For a few night now I’ve been dreaming about a panther sitting on my porch. It hasn’t done anything just sits there but last night he took a bite of my arm. It wasn’t aggressive it was just a bite it didnt hurt and then he let me go and went back to sitting like protecting me . I feel that bite was hes way of trying to tell me something.

  18. Yesterday I was gifted a greenatone
    As dreamed last night I was arriving to an island on a beach there is a doz or more people sitting calmly on the sand watching my arrival on water, alone as I got of the canoe in the back round is a forest, I started walking along the beach and a beautiful strong black panther is approaching me, I was aware of the danger but I was not threatened and I was very content on this is how it is, as I stepped in to the shallow calm waters there panther approach and was greeting me and being subtle and comforting
    I’m not sure whatvtgis means as I am a vivid dreamer but to me i am protected
    I am loyal honest and I know my truth
    Reality and choices are difficult for me so I feel very safe in the out come as my strength is at my core
    I see it and I trust it
    If any one else has a message in regards to this I would love to hear your thought

    • I dreamed of 2 black panthers last night who were approaching me as I walked down an unfamiliar path. It appeared to be a mother and cub – but teenage cub. They were so stunningly gorgeous with thick silvery-black coats. I simply felt startled but not terrified and knew instantly that they had no intention of harming me. We came within very close contact and they seemed only slightly curious about me. I am struggling with big decisions right now and have been subject to toxic energy directed towards me by certain members of my community. I would like to break ties from these people and the panthers just let me know that I have nothing to fear.

  19. I was actually stalked by a black panther in Costa Rican rainforest once and another crossed my path in the same country, different forest, years later.

  20. I was in the back garden and feeding my chickens the panther ran up the hill and kept for my jugular I managed to push it off before it bit me

  21. I dreamt i,was driving in the woods then I ended up walkin I see I black panther I got scared then there was a price of meat in my hand that,i,try to,distract it with . scared i walk ,then I see two more Panthers sitting down I walk pass them scared but they never attack me that my dream.

  22. Dream: in an audience setting. The speaker said that a panther would join the audience as a visiting family member from “the other side” and that she would be able to communicate with the chosen person. As the panther was let loose, it jumped on some seats not too far from where I was siting. It sat stretched across three chairs staring in the other direction but I could see some of her face. Most people seemed to be scared and panicked and they lead us out is the arena and said that we would be called back alphabetically and would walk past her. As I did, I called my sister’s name, she looked at me with total calm and resolve and peace. I sat down. The speaker came over to me and told me I was the one the panther had a message for. How cool is that? Awesome dream, really.

  23. Last night i dreamt that I was playing in my backyard, which looks out over a road (I live in the suburbs) and in broad daylight, right in the middle of the road, was a black panther staring at me with glowing whitish yellow eyes. It let out a really high pitched scream, rather than a roar.
    Later, I dreamt that i tried to show my parents the panther, but instead there were two wolves/coyotes instead across the street, running and fighting. The panther just stayed still.

  24. Last night o was having a normal dream and I was looking for something all of a sudden my dream completely changed. I looked to my left and everything was black and out of the black leaped a large black angry panther at me! I went to hit him away. In real life I woke up when I hit something with my left forearm and it was my SO who was sitting up in bed. I asked are you okay? He said he had a night.are and was trying to get up off the sidewalk. We had our 1 year old sleeping between us. I have know idea why I had this dream and how it collided with my SO like that !? I will add my SO was sitting up but leaned over. If I wouldn’t have woken up he likely would have laid on the baby.

  25. There were 3 animals, to my right was a lion, to my left a jaguar and in front of me a panther, I was in a forest and God had given me power to and one of them but I had to pick the right one so I picked the panther. I saw symbols all over the panther that I could read, it was because of this I could command him, they looked like purple pinapples inside of a purple circle. I didn’t think God had actually given me the power to do this so I called for the panther to come where I was at and I had commanded him when I did it and he came I then petted him like a dog and knew that because I was doing everything right in my waking life Good was blessing me. In the dream the trees were tall and the light from the sun was shining and represented God
