What Do Horses Symbolize?
What does the Horse symbolize and
represent in life? If you've seen or had a close encounter with a
horse, this meaning will vary by how the horse behaved or treated you.
as a spirit animal means freedom without limit. Wild horses, including
stallions, are driven and stubborn with strong personalities. Tamer
horses are more gentle but still contain the same qualities only more
hidden. Whilst they've learned to subjugate their behaviour, there's a strong
vein of emotions, desire and passion broiling beneath. Horse can
therefore represent Freedom, Drive and Passion.
Spiritual Meaning Of Horses
are physically but also emotionally strong with a vitality and pride to
them. They're perfectly aware that they're fast and free beasts who do
not bow down easily to man, needing training to be "broken". Even then,
you can sense their power, their displeasure (or pleasure) and their
pride. They possess many mannerisms that show their state of mind, and
they have no trouble expressing themselves freely. They are stubborn
animals who know themselves. Because most horses are around man on
farms etc, they can also be damaged emotionally or carry wounding. The
horse is also assertive and may wish to be dominant, such is their
spirit, even if forced to submit.
Sometimes this animal may represent the 'animal side' of a person
running wild or out of control, so check your passions or ego to
determine if this is the case. It may be asking you to bring your
canter to a more gentle pace, to slow down and look at life as you
sprint past it. Are you too strong willed, out of control or reckless?
Horses have a love of life and strong spirit, so this animal represents
your drive in life as well, your determination or ambition.
Horses can also be a symbol for luck, especially white horses. They
symbolize power and may help to represent our sexual side as well. Dark
horses however can represent what is in shadow or mystery. A horse
being ridden harmoniously can show you are in tune with your sexual
impulses. It's well known that horses can represent grace, beauty and
nobility. They tend to have noble personalities and may even act snobby
on occasion if your presence no longer suits them.
Sometimes in legend the horse is shown with wings, as with Pegasus,
indicating travel, speed, freedom, and grace. Although horses don't
actually possess wings, they are still speedy as though winged. Pegasus
was known as a symbol of wisdom and fame.
Dream Meaning Of Horses
Horse dreams carry their own particular meanings. Firstly, the white
horse in a dream, either riding it freely or seeing one, can indicate
happiness, friends and money; a great sign to have in a dream. To see
or ride a dark horse can still indicate great success in your future
but it may not be enjoyed for long, or may even come about due to
deception, so beware this dream.
To see or ride a stallion may indicate passion and sex which can master
you for a time. Perhaps rein in your passions a little. Brood mares
show harmony in relationships. To see dead horses can mean
disappointments to your efforts and hard work.
Horses that buck or throw you off show difficulties are coming.
Catching horses is a good sign of improved business matters.
To kill a horse shows you will injure your friends in some way. Racing
a horse is usually a good sign, indicating wealth or prosperity.
