Free and Professional Dream Analysis and What Dreams Mean
Chased by a Huge Bull
Running of the Bulls
I met an old friend at a video shoot and we ended up walking together to catch up on old times. We saw a giant bull in the middle of the street; it had escaped from a giant bullpen that was next to it. It started to chase us so we ran and accidentally split up. We jumped over boulders and fences; later, we reunited and walked away.
I felt scared and overwhelmed.
Main Life Issues:
Wanting to make progress.
Escaping an attack by something that is out of bounds.
Bull: In this dream, a creature that is out of bounds and dangerous.
Chased and running: Feeling vulnerable, wanting to escape.
Jumping over fences and boulders: Overcoming restrictions, obstacles, and challenges.
We split up: Taking separate paths to resolve a situation.
Reunited and walking away together: A metaphor for reaching an agreement; also, a metaphor for finding a solution by joining forces and walking away rather than confronting an issue head on.
What it Means:
The bull is a metaphor for a person or situation that is forceful and tries to get what they want, but the request is out of bounds. The dream suggests that confrontation is not a good idea because brute force may be involved, verbally or as political power plays, in some way. It tells you to walk away and let it be. It also tells you that keeping a united front with those you care about is helpful.
Bottom Line: When an issue comes up with a forceful person or an overwhelming situation, the dream suggests to not confront it; instead, let it be as a way to bring about a solution and a constructive ending.
