Dream – Monkey, Mouse, Mule and Pig


What does dreaming of a monkey, mouse, mule or pig, mean? You may find that these dreams are easier to interpret than you thought.

To dream of a monkey symbolizes deceit, insight and intuition. Those around you may be working to advance their own interests. Alternatively, monkeys also indicate an immature attitude, a playful nature and the mischievous side of your personality. 

To dream that you are feeding a monkey symbolises betrayal by someone whom you thought cared about your interests. Consider also the significance of the Three Mystic Monkeys who cover their eyes, ears and mouth; ‘see no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil’.  

Dreaming of mice indicates fear, meekness, insignificance and a lack of assertiveness. You may be experiencing feelings of inadequacy and fears that you are not measuring up. The dream may be telling you that you are spending too much time hiding in the shadows of someone else.

Alternatively, a mouse symbolizes minor irritations and annoyances. Perhaps you are letting petty problems or insignificant issues eat away at you. The dream may also be a pun on a ‘computer mouse’ and your connection to work on the World Wide Web. 

To see a mule in a dream represents a stubborn and unyielding personality; one that is overbearing, rebellious and unwilling to cooperate with others. Alternatively, the mule also symbolizes menial work and suffering. It may indicate feeling overburdened or stressed.

To dream that you are riding a mule denotes that you are feeling anxious about situations or responsibilities. To dream that you are kicked by a mule refers to the anxiety and fear that you are experiencing, as a result of some guilt or wrongdoing.   

To see a pig in your dream symbolizes dirtiness, greediness, stubbornness or selfishness. A pig may also represent gluttony, opulence and overindulgence. It could refer to someone who is dirty or chauvinistic, like the metaphor often used by women ‘male chauvinistic pig’.

Alternatively, if you like pigs, a dream about a fat and dirty pig represents your misconceptions about certain things. What you believe and what is actually happening may be entirely different. The pig may be an analogy for a relationship where you think the pig will behave in a certain way but in reality, it doesn’t.
