Do You Dream About Wolves?

Heya readers! While reading all of your comments I noticed that quite a few of you mentioned that you regularly had dreams about wolves. It got me thinking, what does it mean to have a wolf visit your dreams? So I grabbed a couple dream dictionaries and looked wolves up and other werewolf related words. Here’s what I got:

Wolf: According to the dream books, dreaming of any animal signifies your “natural” feelings. Dreaming of an angry animal may mean that you are repressing your own anger. If you dream of a carefree animal you are probably wishing for more freedom and a chance to explore. Non-aggressive animals represent your feelings of trust and contentment and a playful animal in your dreams usually signify feelings of joy.

As for actual wolves in your dream, well, they are usually a bad omen. If you dream of hunting one then danger is right around the corner. See yourself chased by one and it is a sign you are over-anxious about something. But if you kill one, then you may have one small success up ahead.

But, since everyone interprets dreams differently and the meaning of a dream depends on the person and what‘s going on in their life, the definition above may not be true for everyone. In another book, wolves represent beauty, power, a bit of mystery and your need for solitude.

Werewolves: Unfortunately there was no definition for werewolves in any of my books, but a few dream websites have their own definition. According to, “To see a werewolf in your dream indicates that something in your life is not what it seems. It is symbolic of fear, repressed anger, and uncontrollable violence. To dream that you are a werewolf, suggests that some aspects of your personality are hurtful and even dangerous to your own well-being. You are headed down an undesirable path. Alternatively, it refers to your repressed instincts.”

Moon: If you dream of the moon often it may mean that you will enjoy a burst of inspiration and creativity. A full moon usually signifies completion.

If you are hunting in your dream and succeed in the hunt then you will soon sort out your problems. But if you fail and your prey gets away it means that you will continue coping with your problems.

  1. I once had a dream that I was just me and I was walking down the avenue when a huge white wolf came bounding outta the trees behind my yard. It was so cool– it looked like it was glowing in the moonlight. Then the wolf turned to me and whined. I followed it into like a place with a lake like a swamp and when I looked at my reflection in the water I was a white wolf as well. Can anyone tell me what it means?

    1. well my dreams always mean some thing but i do not like to talk about it . i have been told i have a good gift so like to talk to some one about it .

  2. I had a weird drean once where I changed into a wolf at school, a slow and painful transformation – it scared me, because i’m an outsider at the best of times but everyone started screaming.
    I hope it isn’t an omen, because I have several ‘werewolf traits’ and I don’t want to be one…and at school it would NOT be good.

  3. Thank u! i’ve been having tha same dream over and over again about werewolves, and i’ve become like obbessed with them ever since i started having dreams about them. Its kinda scary cause they’re all i think about now.

  4. What if the Wolf helps you in the dream? Like saves your life.. and then another I had was where I fell in love with a “Werewolf”?

  5. ive had some dreams about werewolves…quite a few turned out 2 b like Essence`s dream…i was in love with a werewolf…other dreams ill c my bf change into a brown wolf…or ill turn into a silver/white furred wolf…or i just start out as a silver/white wolf in my dream…then go bk 2 bein human…what exactly does all that mean?

  6. In my dreams the wolves save me. I was walking down a forest path a large cougar with red eyes jumped in front of me. It leaps at me. Than tow wolves attacked it. One was black the other whit. After the cougar left they looked at me I bilked. They were gone. I looked down to see gold fur covered paws, after I wake up.

    1. Hi Mid summers night dream…. Last night I had a similar dream. I was on rock ledge in a forest and an orange tiger was leaping for me a black wolf grabbed me and saved me from the tiger. later it seems like the wolf turned into a man…

      I’m curious to learn if you’ve found any significance in your life from your dream???

  7. I had a dream a couple of nights ago where I’m being chased down the hall at my home by a white wolf. What does that mean??

  8. I hade a similar dream last month.
    To see a white wolf in your dream signifies valor and victory. You have the ability to see the light even in your darkest hours
    To see a hallway in your dream, symbolizes self exploration. It is the beginning of the path that you are taking in life. You are going through a transitional phase and journeying into the unknown. It also signals spiritual enlightenment, emotional growth physical prowess, new opportunities and mental passages in your life.
    Look at the colors in you dream they mean something as well.

    1. I curious to know, should I call you dream, what does it mean when you can almost feel the grass underneath your paws, the wind in your fur. I feel this way anytime i go outside. Plus I feel the pull to the moon. help?
      ~ Jay,also you can call me Joniya, Jay, or Fire although I prefer Fire cause that’s waht my friends call me.

  9. Hey everyone. I am a wolf. I am a black she-wolf. My name is Dream and i am a real wolf. Or wat u call werewolves. Dont think all of our kind is hellish some of us are caring a sweet. I am not evil all.

  10. Hi. I had a dream, not that long ago, and I was in my old house. I was watching a white wolf that seems like it was made of moonlight In my room and I was curled up on my bed and the wolf watched me back. I hopped off my bed and I run to where the living room is and while I was running I kept looking through windows to make sure the wolf was still there. I soon came upon the wolf and I see a couple of people out o the corner of my eye watching the wolf. I move soo slowly to the giant window where the wolf was sittting at and I crouched down low so I was face to face with the white wolf. I can’t remember if the wolf had red eyes like rubies or my eyes, they’re brown. I then walked back slowly and I grabbed my brothers camera. I moved back to the wolf slowly and I took a picture. The wolf ran off to the left and when I looked down at the camera the picture was just my backyard with no wolf. It’s really creepy because I can’t remember my dreams very well, but this dream was like I just had the expirience.

  11. i keep having this dream about me walking in a complex the someone with some kind of wepon chases me the i turned into a werewolf and started running and as i was running this person was in front of me so i grabbed her in my teeth so she would not get hurt,theen all of a sudden i saw werewolves on one side and vampires on anotherthey were inside a fortress-like wall thing they selected one form each group and they had to climb a wall as a treaty or something but then the vampires attacked the werewolves and the a war broke out then saddly i woke up

  12. i keep on having the same dream, i’m sitting in a strange room. the doors are locked and im alone, the door is bolted from the outside, and the door was made of steal. But when i tried to open it, it just swung of the hinges and fell at me feet. didn’t understand why or how. but i didn’t care, because i needed to get out, to be free. I got outside, and it was twilight time, the sun was about o set. all around me were these thick woods. i walked into the woods, somehow knowing where to go. when i made it it was just past nightfall, and there was a dim amount of moonlight shimmering through the oak trees. Then i heard faint rustling sounds, and howling from far away. it got louder and louder. then an army of white wolves came fro one side of the clearing, and an army of midnight black wolves came from the other side. both sides where calling to me, asking me to choose my side. i fell to the ground trembling in pain. as two large midnight wings that matched the colour of the dark wolves coat, sprouted from my back, and reached to the sky. the last thing i could remember was the dark wolves howling in union, announcing there victory…… i have no idea what it could mean… but the pain felt so real.

  13. I had this dream twice in one week and I don’t know what it means. Can you help me? I feel like it’s so real. (In my dream)I’m sleeping in my room and it’s like right before I even see it it’s like I sense that it’s there. Before I even look at it I can hear light breathing. When I do look at it it’s looking at me from the corner of it’s eye and slowly walking like slow motion type of walking. But it’s not like it wants to hurt me. But you know it’s still kind of scary. The first dream i had of the wolf it was walking out the back of my little dresser, but in my dream my dresser was in the middle of a wall that’s between my room closet door and the back door to leave the house, but I NEVER use that door. The second dream I had after I had used the bathroom I had left my room door open (and I sleep with it closed) but it was the afternoon around noon already. so the second dream happend today and this time the wolf came into my room through the door. I don’t know what to think.

  17. I had two dreams that i was a wolf. The first one in my first dream I change into a wolf and I was running after this guy and I guess I got him in a room then I told him if he ever did that again ill kill him.

  29. I once had a dream where my grandpa, who had been dead a long time before i had the dream, was alive and in this hospital bed. It was a hospital room but it was in this house that was supposed to be our house but it looked nothing like our actual house, and my grandpa was a werewolf. He said that he would be dieing soon and he needed to pass on the spirit. Then, he had reached put and bit my shoulder. The dream was so real and when i woke up, my shoulder was stinging and it was all red. Help?

    1. Are you experiencing any symptoms like heightened senses, claustrophobia, enhanced strength and speed, or a need for more protein? Because if so, I would guess you’re part-werewolf

      Welcome to the pack ;)

  30. When I was little every night I had the same dream about sitting on the ground at night and looking up to see myself surrounded by black wolves with red eyes. I had it every night for 6 years. I finally got to a point where I rarely had them, once in a while they would come back though.

    When they did come back, it was that my parents were turning into them and trying to get me. I have not had a dream about werewolves in, maybe, 4 or 5 years.

    Recently I have been having problems with my husband and three nights in a row I have had dreams where the town I grew up on was infested with werewolves, but they weren’t trying to get me, once they got up next to me they’d just stop and stare. Then last night I had a dream where my parents turned into werewolves and to try and contain them they were in a cage with tons of food. Before my dad turned I asked if I could get money to get a hotel room so I wasn’t near them when they were werewolves and he freaked out on me.

    I know it’s all just stress and bottled up emotions, but I don’t get why it’s always werewolves. I love wolves, I think they’re amazing. But it’s weird that Every nightmare since I was little has been about them. Now all of a sudden, when they were chasing me and trying to get me, they instead just stare and watch like they respect me in a way. I don’t get it?

  31. Ever since I started loving wolves I have dreamed about them. It wasn’t where I was there and they were around me, but to where I shapeshifted into one. In any dream or nightmare of mine I have been able to protect myself and loved ones by transforming into the body of the wolf. It’s sorta like the Twilight Movies. Last Sunday, I spent the night with my friend. In my dream I was camping with my friend and awoke to the sound of howling, I got up and went my friend, she was sitting there watching a movie on her portable DVD player. I smacked her and said “C’mon!”. She said “Where to?”, and I finally said,”I heard a howling noise and wanted to see if it’s a wolf.” So we ran outside and found a wolf standing in the middle of a clearing.

    It looked calm, so we walked towards it. We were about 12 inches away when it started growling. We looked at it in fright then realized it was looking behind us. My friend and I turned around to see vampires. We turned back and tried to forget it and sit down, and as soon as we did the wolf ran towards the vampires, stopped and howled. Then we heard a strange noise at the edge of the clearing and saw a pack of angry wolves emerge from the bushes. The wolves charged towards the vampires, while me and my friend sat down in terror. We kept hearing the sound of yelps and whimpers. I was so sad and angry at the fact of my most loved animal was being hurt by blood sucking monsters, that I turned aound and looked at the big fight. Being filled with anger, I ran towards the vampires and suddenly transformed into a wolf and killed the blood suckers. I looked back at my friend realizing she had seen the whole thing. She was horrified. I stood there in wolf form as a silver grey wolf came towards me and licked my muzzle. Confused, I heard talking in my mind coming from many voices.

    The one that spoke more was one that belonged to the leader of that pack. It was a male wolf thanking me for saving its family so much that it started showing the subordinate pose of a least ranking wolf. That’s when I realized it was letting me be the new leader. I exepted the offer and turned back to human and walked up to my friend and I said, “I’m scared too, but you don’t need to be afraid of me, cause even though I’m like this I will always be your friend.

    After the camping was done I was once again at my regullar house which was near the forest. I slept thinking every thing that happened wasn’t real. So, that night I awoke again to the sound of howling. I quickly went outside and ran towards the noise, there I saw my new pack. Apparently, I wasn’t the only leader cause the silver grey wolf came and stood right next to me. The wolf was my mate. I ran with my pack all night that finally I awoke from my dream.

    I know you might think this isn’t my real dream, but I have a pretty good memory.
    So, you can choose to beleive me or not, but only I know that it is true. Just to say, I have had this same dream over and over, but I don’t know what it means. I will take anyones help to figure it out. So, please leave a reply.

    The I put shown is NOT my REAL name, but one of my many nick names.

  40. 3/12/12 Werewolf Dream Entry

    I was a werewolf, the alpha of a pack numbering in the hundreds. I recall the strength amongst other sensations, including heightened sense of smell and hearing. I remember seeing my mate, the alpha female at my side. We approached a residential street which curved to the right as we approached a house where a party was taking place. There were so many of us; as countless leaped silently from rooftop to rooftop, others scurried through resident’s front yards. We stayed on the right side of the street where the target house was located and moved through the shadows unseen, unheard, undetected. We reached the house and I could already see my clan readying for the slaughter to come. They were positioned at every window, every door, and at every weak point upon the roof. They waited for my command.
    My mate watched me eagerly, waiting for me to give the order. I howled like I wish I could now, like a great wolf, though stronger, steadier, bolder, deeper. The hundreds surrounding me began clamoring into the house through any gap they could find and my mate was already gone by the time I looked her way again. I joined the slaughter moments after, plunging through a window. The first sight I beheld was the blood all the while I could hear the screams of men and women being torn apart. At the time it didn’t bother me and in fact was almost gratifying. I think back now and my stomach churns. I found a man in my claws and ripped him in two, as easily as one might tear apart a marshmallow, and threw his remains to opposite ends of the room. I repeated the process with another, then another, and another. I remember biting, clawing, gnashing and mauling everyone in my path while the other wolves around me did the same. I tore them to shreds in my arms; men and women alike. I held a man by the neck as I looked around me. Blood drenched the floor, the ceiling, and the walls and the remains of the dead were scattered in unintelligible heaps across the house. Three of my kin rushed down from a flight of stairs on holding a leg, all three which had fur dyed crimson with blood. So ends the first segment of my dream; I will spare you the rest of the gore, rape, blood, and horror of which there is much more. What could this possibly mean for me?

  41. i had a dream about my freind chloe being a werewolf and a guy who was one he liked her and wanted to ask her out and he was nice to me…. well its complicated its a long story short to be presice it was soo significante to me that i had to write it down and type and print it to not for get it. i dont know why but its special to me i need a little help and understanding of this? soooo help? help pllease hah? please im confused?
