Deer

New adventures await you as the way is now clear. You are being gently nudged through this door.
-Deer

If Deer has crossed your path;

It is often a sign not to be too hard on yourself. Still the voice of the self critic and treat yourself with gentleness and understanding, be yourself and continue along your path. Seek out your inner treasures and use them generously to help those around you. Trust that kindness and graciousness will be well received.

We are also reminded that we cannot push towards change in others, rather we gently nudge them in the right direction with love and understanding. Lead by doing and showing the way.

Deer is a messenger of serenity, can see between shadows and hear what isn’t being said.

Deer teaches us to maintain our innocence and gentleness so we can share our open-heartedness with others.

If Deer is your Animal Totem;

You have the knowledge of how to use the power of gentleness to touch the hearts and minds of the wounded beings in your life. You have a propensity to see new innocence and freshness in life everywhere and you constantly feel the lure of new adventures. Often you have a link to the arts, especially poetry and music.

You are also a keen observer, able to see well in low light. You are also a very compassionate, gentle and loving person.

If Deer has come to your Dream;

It symbolizes grace, compassion, gentleness, meekness and natural beauty. It has feminine qualities and may point to the feminine aspect within yourself. It also represents independence, alertness, and virility. Consider the symbol to be a pun for someone who is “dear” to you. Alternatively, the dream represents vulnerability and naivety. As a result, others may take advantage of you and your gullibility.

If the deer is black, then it means that you are not acknowledging or are rejecting the feminine qualities in you. You may not be in tune with your feminine side.

To dream that you hunt or kill a dear suggests that you are trying to suppress those feminine qualities.

To see a male deer or buck in your dream represents alertness, virility, masculine sexuality and assertiveness. If the two bucks are fighting, then it signifies male aggression. You are trying to dominate or take control over some area of your life. Alternatively, the dream may be a pun on a dollar.

  • hi i saw a spike buck that was pure black, can’t help wondering if it was some sort of omen

  • This morning as I was opening my window shade, I locked eyes with a large buck in my tiny backyard space. It was breath taking to say the least. I was hoping it was a sign of some significance. Any thoughts?

  • Last night a deer came to me in my dreams and gently rubbed its nose in my face. :razz: :grin: :wink:

  • Today I was on my way to a induction for a job and I saw 3 deer walking together up a grassy hill in the near distance. I have sometimes seen deer before but never as many as 3 there. I didn’t see any significance until we reached the venue and besides the venue name the road or drive way was called Deer park. Surely thats a good sign right? :-)

  • I just saw two good sized bucks with large antlers walking across the street in front of me and then pausing before going through a hedge in someones front yard. A beautiful and peaceful sight.
    Just wondering what you think the reference would be.

  • I had a dream where tigers where jumping the fences of my backyard. I was amazed at the site but noticed a young tiger was unable to make the jump and was left behind. I went outside, regardless of the fear I felt and thought the baby tiger to jump not knowing it’s mother was watching. After so, I went inside unharmed. A few minutes later I hear another noise but to my surprise, this time it was a young fawn. There was a baby deer outside my sliding glass door. I let it in, knowing there was tigers outside. Only, this time when I was ready to take it outside, there was a tiger there. I’m not sure if it was the mother or young tiger but it did not leave. No matter how much time passed it seemed to want the deer. Knowing the baby deer’s fate, I kept it safe inside till I awoke. This dream is not like any other, I woke up and still feel like there is significance behind it yet, I unsure of what it might be. Can you help explain? I

    • Hi..I the tigers represent two strong females..the backyard..things you do not want to acknowledge or face…the fawn..represents innocence.. The fence… A barrier. Difficulty in yourself. It is either something which bars your progress or expression, or is used as a protection from things outside yourself, or from things getting at you. If you are sitting on the fence, it shows you attempting to avoid decision or action.

      In many dreams a fence or wall also suggests social barriers, the attitudes and feelings people express to keep others at a distance, to keep a separation between those of different social, religious or economic class. This sort of fence may also depict tension or conflict, as was expressed by the Berlin wall between two opposing powers.

      The fence often depicts our sense of social barriers, class barriers, or the attitudes we use to segregate the sexes, races or classes in work, opportunity or relationship. It can represent the need for privacy; territorial feelings; the social rules we use to give each other respect, or the de-fences we erect to ward off what we fear as danger of hurt.

      Also our boundaries or fears in relationship or society which might prevent us daring to express ourselves or be creative. The door..A boundary; the difference between one feeling state and another, such as depression and feeling motivated. A barrier to change or growth or the passing from inside oneself to exterior life. The feelings or attitudes, such as aloofness, we use to shut others out of our life to remain independent or private and being open or inviting. A sense of leaving an environment or relationship – or escape. A door can be an entering into a new work or relationship situation; entrance to a new life style, or a new phase of one’s life. Or conversely, an exit from one situation into another…..I hope this helps I took two of the symbols fromt ony crisps website.. to save time

  • This morning before dawn as I began my morning ritual of walking a sacred circle outside a deer snorted in the dark and bounded off to the north. Any thoughts on this?

  • I had never heard of spirit animals and didn’t know anything about them when I met this guy and I had this strong impression of a deer: he somehow just reminded me of a majestic, peaceful deer, and I had never really associated people with animals before him. I got to know him a little bit and he was very kind, soft spoken and the most empathetic person I had ever seen, ever: he felt people’s problems more than they did, really a lot of sympathy for others. Reading this, he has exactly all of these traits. He even plays an instrument and sings well. I only much later found out the deer was his favorite animal and he kept a very pretty (artistic, not necessarily realistic) painting of one in his room.

  • Last fall, I was at my house when I heard the sounds of clattering sticks and heavy breathing. I looked out the window and saw 2 eight point bucks with antlers intertwined, pushing against each other and shaking their heads. The 2 bucks seemed equally matched as one pushed the other back for a bit, and then the other would dig in and push the first around. Their hooves and antlers churned up the ground as they struggled. Sometimes they rested for a minute or so to catch their breath, then it started again. At one point their antlers locked and they struggled to separate themselves – they seemed to be working together at this point. After they separated, they paused and came back together again each trying to gain advantage over the other. After about 10-15 minutes of this, they separated and left. I was both amazed and grateful for the experience, but have often wondered since then why I was invited to witness this event. It doesn’t seem that it occurred by accident.

    • Hello Kathy: This significant event in your life is also representative of the internal struggle you have constantly with your own will power. Only when you come to full unconditional love and acceptance for yourself will this internal struggle cease and leave you.

  • Im interested in the message specifically of Fawn. any info is appreciated!
    Carla

    • Hello Carla: A Fawn is the “Light.” They are the manifestation of spiritual inspiration in action. To see a Fawn is to know that new spiritual truths will soon be revealed to you. They are faithful, graceful, upright and affectionate and represent the nurturing support of the Universe. In the shadow form they seek favor through subservience, flattery and pandering. They refuse to own their power.
