Ape Dream Meaning
Dreaming of an ape can symbolize knowledge, resourcefulness, friendship, social relationships, communication and a sense of environment. As apes are large animals, this can sometimes also symbolize strength, fear or danger or great force under control if the ape presents itself in a gentle manner.
The kind of ape you dream of may also give you an important clue as to what your dream means. Remember, apes are different from monkeys; they are larger and do not have tails.
Orangutan Dream Meaning
Orangutan dreams are usually warnings. If an orangutan shows up in your dream, it implies that others around you may be using your influence to advance their own efforts. This is a warning to be on the look out for people who are trying to use you or your good reputation to get a head. It may also mean that if you are in a relationship the person you are with may be having an affair. This is especially true if it is a young woman having the dream. It also suggests that the woman will experience a great deal of sadness over this particular lover going astray.
Chimpanzee Dream Meaning
To dream of a chimpanzee may mean that you are putting to much thought or over thinking an event in your life. It may also mean that you are lacking patience in some area of your life and need to refrain from taking matters that are not under your control into your own hands.
Gorilla Dream Meaning
If a gorilla appears in your dream you may find that you have been repressing your primal desires and sexuality. It might be time to consider opening up and exploring this aspect of yourself. It may also mean that you are being to dominating or overpowering in some area of your life.
Gibbon Dream Meaning
To dream of a gibbon often times means that you have an important goal that you would like to meet and you have come to the full awareness that you have what it takes to reach the desired goal. The gibbon is a symbol that it is now time to reach out and grab onto what it is you desire. It is yours for the taking!
To obtain the true essence of the meaning of ape dreams it is very important to recall what the animal was doing or any particular aspect that really seemed to stand out in the dream. For example, if you are teaching the ape sign language this may indicate that you feel that you possess great knowledge or skill in some area and that you believe it is worth investing your time to teach this knowledge or skill to others. On the other hand, if you see an ape savagely attacking someone or something it may indicate that you yourself are "going ape" in some part of your life and must work through your aggression and to resolve these feelings.
