The eagle is one of the most universal symbols in the world. It is a strong animal that portrays our strength on the intellectual or spiritual field. This bird indicates that we have high aspirations, usually of conquest, power, and command. The dream will be positive if you identify with the animal, and negative if it transmits fear or pain. If you have the impression of being an eagle and contemplating everything from above, your oneiric thoughts are denoting feelings of liberation. If you see an eagle's solemn flight high on the sky, it means that in real life you are about to give everything up for the sake of a goal or an ideal. Now, if you imagine an eagle flying while holding its prey, it is warning you that a relationship is about to turn to enmity. If the eagle attacks you, there is a chance you will suffer a misfortune. The altitude of the bird's flight is proportional to the importance of the events that are being planned. Similarly, the speed of such flight indicates the pace of those same events. Finally, if an eagle appears before a teenager attacking her in a dream, it could symbolize the emotional problems she is facing, as well as her inability to take on the responsibilities of mature love. Formerly, it was believed that eagles were the messenger of the sun god. In this sense, your oneiric eagle may be the messenger of your unconscious. On the other hand, many mythological stories refer to this animal (the eagle and the lion, the eagle and the snake). It regards opposing psychologies: the spiritual against the animal; masculine against feminine; the conscious against the unconscious; reasoning against instinct . . . It is also said that dreaming of an eagle portends fame and fortune. To see a calm eagle and to hear it speak is a favorable dream. A dead one is a sign of difficulty. Shooting it always signals loss. To lock it up in a cage: a great family shame. To take it off the nest: danger or threat. A white eagle promises a sizable inheritance.
