Dream meaning » zoo

Dreams of a zoo represent your primal urges, sexual drives, and protective instincts in its multifaceted splendor. Alternatively, the fact that these animals are caged may be giving you the message to unleash your natural urges and let your true feelings roam free. See Animal

Alternatively, a zoo suggests that your abilities and talents are going unnoticed. You or an aspect of your life feels caged in. The zoo may also represent chaos and confusion as implied by the common phrase “this place is a zoo!” You may need to tidy up some situation in your life.

To dream that animals escape from the zoo implies that your hidden desires can no longer be contained and must be acknowledged or expressed.

Symbolism can be created from the cages and “animal prison” aspects of zoos. Dreaming about a zoo might mean you feel restricted or caged in. See: Cage.
A zoo is a perfect dream setting to speak to things you observe. Creatures at zoos are there to be observed.
An animal escaping from a zoo can symbolize escaping restriction, including restriction of your movement and decision-making.

This symbol relates to the repression of deep, primal urges and instincts. No matter how humane the conditions of a zoo are, there is the inescapable fact that the animals are out of their natural environments and on display. Whether done for amusement or educational value, the restraint of an animal is symbolic of the restraint of primal instincts. In a dream, this connects to those urges that our thinking, rational mind keeps beneath the surface of our consciousness. We project onto caged animals qualities that live inside of us and ponder them from a distance through the bars. The more dangerous the animal, the more primal the urge being repressed. A more docile creature on display might connect to lost innocence. Whatever qualities you ascribe to the zoo animal, it is those qualities that live in yourself that are being compartmentalized by your psyche and exhibited in your dream.

If you dream of visiting a zoo and looking at animals in pens or cages, you have reined in your own natural instincts so they don’t get out of control.

If you dream of animals escaping from a zoo, you’ve let your natural urges get out of control. You may have already behaved inappropriately, or you are about to.

If you dream you are in a zoo, you feel trapped in some area of your life and unable to move on or be appreciated for who you are or what you can do. You are being treated like an inferior, even a prisoner.
