Bull Animal-Totems

Animal Totems

Native peoples of many countries have animal spirits that play a very important part in their lives. In Chinese astrology all the signs are animals and in western astrology most of the signs are animals.

By getting to know your animal totem, you can gain insight and understanding of your own life circumstances more clearly, and share in the totem power or 'medicine'. Animal totems manifest a specific kind of energy that will align to forces of the spiritual realm that are influencing your life.

Bull

 The Bull, or Bison, is a symbol of abundance and manifesting goals. People with this totem are unafraid, often unpredictable, and willing to meet a challenge head on. Bull people are social creatures who work well in teams, but also have strong personal determination. Sometimes they can be stubborn and insistent, but it is only because they are so driven. 

Bull spirit animals can lend us the strength to stand our ground, but they remind us not to crash around like a bull in a china shop. Only 5-10% of challenges between bulls lead to actual fights. The bulls compete for females by butting heads. They have special boney struts that reinforce their inner and outer skull as well as a thick matt of hair on their forehead to protect them from the force of the blows. This reminds us of the benefit of being “thick headed”. Sometimes it is necessary to know your truth and not give in to the shoves of others.  When considering the meaning of Bull, remember that you are both the Bull and the ecosystem that profits from their action. You have the opportunity to spread abundance wherever you go as long as you stay true to who you are AND now is the time to give thanks for the myriad of ways that the Divine brings abundance into your life.

Bull Dream Meaning

Bulles in dreams symbolize materialization of a desire, and increased abundance, especially if they are running in herds. If you kill a Bull in a dream it means you should be extra careful regarding a future decision that may affect your livelihood
