Dream meaning of skunk

What good qualities could we learn from these little animals? People generally shy away from them because they see them as such a nuisance. However, we can discover valuable attributes of this humble and unpretentious creature. Like other small animals, it could fall prey to much larger and stronger predators. For that reason, dreaming of skunks is a symbol of nonviolence.

Easily identified by their markings, predators know the terrible inconvenience that the skunk’s scent can cause. Thanks to this, this small animal wanders through life without haste, without fear, without bites and without poison to hurt it.

The skunk in dreams symbolizes prudence, conscience, protection, confidence, wisdom, success and tranquility.

As an animal, its meaning in dreams advises us that violence is not necessary to defend ourselves. By employing ingenuity and preparation, we can avoid conflicts and confrontations even with our strongest enemies. Why preparation? Yes, a plan is prepared in advance to protect us. Just as the skunk must calculate how many sprinkles he might use on each excursion to protect himself during the week, so must we.

The skunk and its odor cannot be separated. When faced with fear, the skunk emits a musk that most predators find objectionable, thus protecting it from danger. In this regard, the symbol of the skunk connects to the ability to keep danger at bay. When the skunk appears in a dream, your mechanisms of self-protection are being stimulated. It is up to you to decide whether this defensive posture is for your own true good or an overreaction.
