Lion Dream Explanation
is a ruler, a tyrant, or a powerful and very dangerous person, in view of the ferocity and devastating anger of that animal. It also symbolizes the warrior, the swindler, the thief, the treacherous worker, the policeman, the insatiable enemy, and perhaps hardships and death, because he who stares at it turns pale, loses his self-control, and is as good as dead, says Ibn Siren. Furthermore, it represents the ruler who embezzles public funds and commits injustice and the lurking enemy. The lioness symbolizes the daughter of a king. The baby lion (lions whelp or cub)
is a boy. A man told Ibn Siren, I dreamed that I was embracing and nursing a baby lion
. When the great seer looked at him, saw his humble appearance and miserable garments, and understood that he could not be eligible for any honour, he said, What could you possibly have to do with the children of princes?! and he added, Is your wife, by chance, breast-feeding the son of a prince? Yes, was the reply.
