Dream Meanings of Versatile | Versatile - Anonymous

The deer, as one of the most widely hunted species in North America, is naturally associated with hunting. It also symbolizes grace and gentleness (“gentle as a deer”). In folklore deer are messengers of fairies, which may give them a symbolic role in dreams as messengers of the unconscious.

Dream Symbols in The Dream Encyclopedia | James R. Lewis and Evelyn Dorothy Oliver

The gentle deer has an innocence that is both beautiful and fragile. If she visits your dreams, it is a lovely omen, and a sign that you are loved and cared for. Deer are often associated with fear, because of the way they flee from danger.

Is there something you’re afraid of ? If so, think of ways to channel that fear into something positive and move forwards. Even if the deer in your dreams runs away, you don’t have to.

She may be fleet of foot, but you are fleet of mind – and resourceful.

Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation | Gustavus Hindman Miller

As like with most other animals, the deer in your dream may represent some aspect of your intuition or it may be a message from your unconscious. In some parts of Asia, deer are considered to be conductors of soul and thus the robes of shamans are usually made out of deerskin.

The Indians of North and South America also gave deer a spiritually important role. They believed that the souls of men passed into deer at the time of death. They also believed that a dying deer was a negative omen, which usually represented droughts that in turn foretold of very difficult times ahead. In the modern world, we generally see deer as gentle forest animals. Deer are characters in children’s stories and Santa Clause uses them to bring gifts to all. Thus, the deer in your dream may be a symbol of gentle and helpful parts of your psyche. In order to understand the message of the dream, think about what situation in your life would benefit from gentleness and soul fullness?

The Bedside Dream Dictionary | Silvana Amar

Because of the similarity of its antler to tree branches, it is often linked symbolically to the Tree of Life. By virtue of its large antlers it also represents the elevation. For these reasons, it is identified with the idea of nobility. Its presence in dreams may be related to a job promotion.

The oneiric image of this animal in the forest announces benefits. A deer running bodes well for business. Deer fighting one another denote obtained powers; to see them die, well-being; to have one in the garden, misfortune. However, a herd of deer predicts good and numerous friendships.
