The gorilla is a dream symbol with many meanings. It is a very ambivalent symbol that can mean either something good or bad, depending on the context and state of the soul of the dreamer.
However, it is clear in the interpretation of the gorilla’s dream symbol that the animal always represents a very specific part of us. Let’s take a closer look at the ambivalent interpretation of the gorilla.
As everyone knows, the gorilla is a wild animal, which is normally native to the jungles and jungles of Asia, Africa, and South America. The emphasis here is on the word “wild”. The word is emphasized because the animal in the dream represents the animal and uncivilized side in us. The gorilla stands for an animal-primitive man without intellectual interests. In this sense, the animal space symbol is in contrast to other dream symbols that symbolize the creative, spiritually creative side in us, as is the case, for example, with dreams of flying, colors or the dream symbol spider.
The symbol may be used by the subconscious to ask for human development and spiritual maturity. This is especially true when you find yourself in the shape of the great apes. If you see yourself in the dream as a gorilla, then this can be related to your own maturity and spiritual development.
If one sees a good friend or another fellow human being in a gorilla form, we may wish that this person still has a need for development in his character. The dream symbol can show itself even if you feel disabled in your personal development by something or someone.
If a gorilla appears in a dream, it may also point to impending problems. If you fight against a gorilla, for example, this can also be an imminent confrontation. But it can also mean that you are surrounded by the wrong people who might harm you. Being followed by a wild gorilla also indicates annoyance.
Another interpretation is in the sexual direction because the dream symbol gorilla always plays on our instinctual tendencies. For example, if a person transforms into a gorilla in a dream, this means a “refinement” of those inclinations or a spiritual deepening of one’s own sexuality. If a gorilla appears as a sex symbol, it may mean that it lacks its own sex life in emotional depth.
The gorilla counts with the chimpanzee and the orangutan to the family of apes. Gorillas are the largest living primates. The leaf-eaters have a robust, strong physique and mostly black-gray fur. They are native to the central parts of Africa. Adult gorilla males can weigh up to 200 kilograms, females up to 90 kilograms.
Dreams of gorillas in other cultures
In the Arabic interpretation of dreams, the gorilla stands for the embodiment of an enemy. What happens to the animal in a dream is also fulfilled in the life of the dreaming, as in the fight with the wild animal. If you win that, you will be lucky in real life and the enemy will be defeated.
In general, the gorilla can be understood as a warning symbol that indicates impending problems or annoyances with a person. The symbol also warns of false friends.
The same is true of interpretation in Persian space. The gorilla in the dream warns of false friends in the watch world. If the jungle dweller appears in a dream, caution is required. Maybe you have entrusted something to an alleged friend, that you should have kept better for yourself. The subconscious mind calls on the dreamer with the dream symbol to be more cautious or more careful in the choice of his friends and above all in his utterances in the future.
Once the animal was considered sacred in India, its meaning has changed over time. Anyone who dreams of gorillas in India now has to be careful when dealing with people. Playing in a dream with a gorilla may indicate that you will soon have a friend as your enemy.
In addition, the animal symbolizes the dark side of one’s own soul. As everyone knows, the gorilla is a wild animal, which is normally native to the jungles and jungles of Asia, Africa, and South America. The emphasis here is on the word “wild”. The word is emphasized because the animal in the dream represents the animal and uncivilized side in us. The gorilla stands for an animal-primitive man without intellectual interests. In this sense, the animal space symbol is in contrast to other dream symbols that symbolize the creative, spiritually creative side in us, as is the case, for example, with dreams of flying, colors or the dream symbol spider.
Anyone who dreams of a gorilla in India may do ill-considered things in real life or be immature in certain situations. The dream symbol can also allude to a certain internal conflict, which the subconscious mind wants to call to consciousness. A gorilla appearing in the dream can thus indicate a mental imbalance or dissatisfaction in the emotional life.
Gorillas are especially instinctual beings. The animals are also characterized by their unquenched and unbridled propagation instinct.
In the dream, the gorilla is a shadow of our own ego, a sort of caricature of ourselves. It can refer to the fear of being ridiculed by others but also point to primitive instincts that will illustrate us our subconscious.
Gorilla dreams have the task of becoming aware of their own animalistic nature. This is especially true when the ape in the dream turns into a human or accepts clearly recognizable human traits.
Dream symbol “Gorilla” – The general interpretation
In the general dream interpretation, the gorilla is understood in the dream in the sense of “ape”. However, the dream symbol “gorilla” often causes anxiety. Compared to the other species of gorillas, the gorilla in the dream is a rather unfavorable dream symbol.

The dreaming must adjust to the fact that he must deal in the watch world soon with these characteristics. Especially if the dreaming also has dreamed of a fight with a gorilla, he receives, according to the general dream interpretation, a warning against uncontrolled emotional outbursts in the watch world.
The behavior of the gorilla in the dream also provides an indication of the behavior of the dreaming towards his opponents in the watch world. If the gorilla acts calmly and calmly in the dream, the dreaming will also deal with critical situations. If the gorilla on the other hand, aggressive or irritable, the dreaming in the watch world must be very strong, so as not to lose patience and let his pent-up feelings run wild.
If the dreaming observes a gorilla in a dream while running or climbing, the general interpretation of the dream shows him that he will possibly engage in or commit stupidity in the watch world. The pursuit of a gorilla in the dream can be interpreted as difficulties or quarrels in the watch world.
