The jungle represents your unconscious urges, those areas of yourself that remain uncivilized and which need to be tamed if you are to move forward with your life.
If you are trapped in the forest in your dream, this indicates that you are feeling trapped by negativity and fear; but if you are surviving happily in your dream jungle, you have overcome your fears and made sense of yourself and your environment. See also NATURE AND THE SEASONS.

Only found in tropical climates, these vast, moisture-laden habitats are isolated, mysterious, and, for most Westerners, completely foreign to our civilized mentality. This can make for a romantic view of such a setting in a dream.
If the jungle atmosphere in your dream evoked a sense of wonder and enchantment, you may be tapping into some new and interesting territory in some area of your life.
The flip side of this coin would be this image expressing a desire for experiences that are new and different. Your dream could be a request for life to bring you a taste of the exotic. Jungle terrain can be quite inhospitable; with everything from deadly animals to insects carrying disease, your life could be in peril in such a place.
