Dreaming of Horses...

Horse Dreams

Have you been having dreams of horses lately? Are you wondering about possible horse dream interpretations? There are many ways to interpret a horse dream or dreams of horses in general. What you have to remember is that your dreams could be very different from the next person's horse dreams, so you must ultimately interpret your horse dream to fit your life and current experiences.

These horse dream interpretations are meant as a guide to aid in your personal horse dream interpretation. I am not a psychologist, nor am I an advanced metaphysical expert...I am merely a dreamer and enjoy interpreting dreams.

Horse dreams can be magical experiences...the magic of a horse dream can last hours, days, even an entire lifetime. Maybe you have a personal connection to horses, or maybe you have a spiritual experience with horses that brings the horse's spirit to you in your dreams...

Horses in Mythology & Horse Dream Interpretations

For thousands of years, horses have been loved and revered by various cultures and peoples all over the world. The ancient Celts, who at one point spread from one corner of Europe to the next, honored horses and even followed gods and goddesses who were closely associated with horses. Epona is an example of a Celtic horse goddess...Gaulish, to be exact. Epona (ever wonder where the term Pony came from?) was a goddess who was known to protect horses and similar creatures such as donkeys, and also was a goddess associated with fertility and abundance. The darker side of the beautiful Epona also shows us that the Celtic Gauls possibly believed that Epona and her horse spirit companions would aid souls in their travel from the mundane world to the afterlife.

This belief in a horse goddess who was a guardian and guide of souls can also be seen in Native American beliefs. Minus the goddess, a horse guide or horse spirit guide was known to many different Native American tribes to also guide a recently departed soul into the afterlife...or onto the land of their ancestors. Horses were seen as magical beings, not just in Native American beliefs and Celtic beliefs but in beliefs from many other cultures throughout the centuries. But what do these horse myths have to do with dreaming of horses or horse dream interpretations?

Horse Dream Interpretations

I have read many other websites and books with horse dream interpretations gearing mainly towards a point of telling the dreamer that he/she is realizing his or her own "strength" or even "sexual prowess". This could be a valid horse dream interpretation, but however, it is not my horse dream interpretation.

When I think of the dreams of horses that I've had throughout the years, I can only hear two words repeated in my mind - spirit and journey. The first horse dream interpretation of my own horse dreams came when I was experiencing a recurring horse dream as a young lady...a dream that inevitably brought back memories of a past life for me. Whether you believe in reincarnation or not, think about the horse dream in its entirety...it is a recurring dream? It is of a scene and place that you've never seen yet you feel as if you know it well? Maybe you're experiencing a past life dream...often I've experienced past life dreams and a horse is present as my spirit guide into a journey of my soul, if you will.

Many times horses were thought to lead souls from this world to the next, as sort of psychopomps. This would lead to the idea that the horse is trying to guide you into another phase of your life...maybe your old way of life is dying and you need guidance into a new life. The horse is there to guide you...so let him.

Horse dream interpretations could go many different ways, but it really depends on how you interpret the horse dreams you might be having. What is the context of the dream? What are the surroundings in the dream? How do you feel when you wake up...are you happy? Exhilarated? Scared? We should equate the horse in a dream to mean something deeper than physical pleasure or accomplishment...equate the horse with a spiritual awakening of sorts...or a journey into the spiritual world.

    Very interesting. I keep having a dream about my friend's horse even though I have my own horse. Every dream he is just standing there in front of me and it's been driving me crazy trying to figure out what it means.
