The dream of a bull can be interpreted quite differently. Therefore, it is important not only to look at the dream symbol itself, but also the accompanying circumstances. What did the bull do in a dream? Was he peaceful or full of aggression?

In addition, the dreaming, if he dreams of a bull, should be aware that he has a very pronounced masculinity and great sexual potency. Another interpretation in the general interpretation of dreams interprets the bull in the dream as a symbol of determination, energy and assertiveness.

The sight of a bull in the dream sometimes also illustrates the stubbornness or persistence of the dreaming in the watch world. Similar to the bull with its horns, the dreaming in the awake life tries with the head by the wall to go and to enforce his will ruthlessly. However, this behavior can also have a negative effect on him. He should therefore think carefully and decide on a case-by-case basis whether he should really stick to his opinion without compromise.

If the bull storms towards you in the dream, this can be understood as an invitation to show more perseverance and to act more decisively. But the dreaming should also be aware of when he should act actively and at what time he should rather wait. If the dreaming is pursued by a bull in the dream, on the one hand this points to annoyances in the business area.

On the other hand, it can symbolize the dreaming that he is afraid of his own passions and he should learn to control them. In contrast, the fight with a bull as a dream symbol reminds the dreaming to be more compliant in the watch world.
