Goat Dream Meaning and Interpretations


Goat Dream Symbol – Dreaming about a goat could mean several things, but the most common meaning is that of abundance and mirth. Goats are commonly associated with feasts and spectacular parties. This may come from the faun of Greek mythology, but it is more likely that this comes from the ancient uses of goats and what they actually meant to their herders and owners.

Goats can survive on little so that even in a bad year the owner of a goat would still have fresh milk and meat. This historical meaning of goats has remained in the social consciousness of the world and is a big reason why goats remain popular to this day.

  1. My dream was that of a black long hair sheep goat at the opposite end of the road in a neighborhood, i was walking in the direction of the goat until i noticed it and it saw me as well, i crossed to the other side of the road as to stay clear from the goat but the goat came to my direction and approached me, at first i was afraid that it was going to bud me but instead it rubbed it’s horns on my back as i grabbed its horn, the horn felt rough and scaly, .. I hung on to the horns until i can get someone to help me with the goat …….

  7. If anyone has any idea about what this dream might symbolise, please tell me your thoughts.
    I was in a hotel room with several strangers. The hotel room next door had tripped the fire alarm and we all went out to our neighbours and were banging on the door, telling them to come out. We could smell the fire and see the light flickering in the window above the doorframe, and we could hear the muffled voices of two men talking inside. The door finally opened and this beautiful girl who looked like a gypsy queen walked out slowly, smiling around at us and continuing on her way. There was no fire when the door opened. I walked inside and behind this beautiful glass footboard a white and black spotted goat lay in the middle of a circular, red velvet bed. He didn’t turn to look at us, just laid there calmly. I wasn’t afraid of him, but as J stepped inside the room I was overwhelmed with the feeling of dread; the floor of that room was pure evil.
    There was much more to this dream after that, the details becoming more and more sinister, ending with human sacrifice. But there you go, that was the scene with the goat

    Last night I had a dream of a three (3) headed goat with no horns.

    I saw her grazing in front of an unknown cottage I was in, I only saw one head at first, when I opened the door the other 2 heads turned to look at me and the goat(s) tried to come in. I had to wrestle this 3 headed goat back, she wanted me to play and pet her. I did and she went back to grazing on the grass in front of this cottage.

    The cottage belonged to old friends that I had not seen in over a decade, I ended that relationship with this married couple as I was not comfortable with much of what they were doing at that time. I asked them about the goat(s) and they told me that they had adopted her and she keeps the grass trimmed.

    The dream was a happy one overall, quite bizarre and surprising. What does all of this mean ? Anyone ?

Im with a group of people, when we cross over with the goats they chase the small one while Im the one stalling the bigger goat.

One of my friends in the dream faced the big goat and he ended up falling on the ground and the big goat grated his skin using its feet.

    I dreamed today of a white goat who had its legs aroung my neck like he was holding on to me. He had climbed into car with me. But never left me. I trie finding who he belonged to. Dream was all mixed up except for the fact he was holding on to me and wouldn’t let go. I had to laugh. Of all the things to dream of, it had to be a goat.
