There are many different ways that a cougar’s symbolism could be interpreted. For one, they have sharp eyes and can see prey moving from nearly miles away. For another thing they are excellent hunters and can stay quiet in waiting for a long time without anyone noticing them and without their prey suspecting a thing. The other definition of cougar, well, these people are known for their strong sexual appetites. This will tell you how these traits apply to dream interpretation though.
If you have a dream in which you are a cougar, it means that you need to open your eyes more. There’s something that’s going on around you, an opportunity that you need to seize, but you don’t seem to be getting it. If you can just pay attention to the amount of stuff that’s going on outside of your limited field of vision, it would open for you, an entirely new field of vision which is just ripe for the picking. Be ready for all of the stuff that you will soon be privy to once you open your mind a bit, enough to let in a few new ideas.
If you dream that you are running away from a cougar it could be because you feel as if you are being preyed upon for some reason. You are being bothered by someone or maybe someone is just relentlessly teasing you. Whatever the case may be, you feel almost like a victim or a potential victim. You are doing your best to try to avoid being made fun of and avoid having to confront other people or deal with confrontation on the part of others. Dreaming of a cougar will stop once you start to stick up for yourself more and once you start to show your bullies what for.
If you have a dream in which you are being pursued by the other kind of cougar, this could have two different meanings depending on what reaction you have to it. If you seem to be bothered that there is a woman following you, then this may be a sign that you are not ready for commitment and not ready for a relationship with a mature woman. You should also think about how this remarks on you maturity level though. Not very well, it would seem. If you enjoy the attention from the cougar in your dreams though then this means that you have accepted your level of attractiveness and your appeal to an older age group and are happy about your fortune in having such classic appeal. Good job.
A cougar dream can be pretty intimidating to deal with at first but soon you will be able to realize that it is not the worst thing in the world. Just give yourself some time and after a little bit you will be able to realize what it is saying to you and whether it is good news or bad for you.
