Black Cat Dream Meaning & Interpretation: Bad Luck?

If you're a pet lover, you've probably have dreamed about cats. These dreams are common but not always easy to interpret. Cats’ symbolisms have centuries of mythological, religious, and artistic symbolism attached to them.

Cat dreams also carry messages from our subconscious minds, revealing deep-seated feelings. So, if you ever had this dream, make sure to check its details and see if it resonates with your feelings or situation.

Detailed Black Cat Dream Meaning

Cat dream interpretations are vast and varied. Similar to Dreaming about Monkey, you can expect that not all cat dreams contain the same meaning.

Seeing a black cat in your dream indicates your power, creativity, and sexuality. Nonetheless, this dream also foretells about an upcoming misfortune to your life. You could suffer from the bad luck that's coming for a year.

To prepare for this misfortune, start to live well. It could be that you're letting the bad things in your life suck the life out of you. Remember that you have the power within you that you can use.

Manage your finances well to prevent yourself from getting into a tight situation. Consider giving your best in all areas of your life to avoid having critical problems.

●    Black Kitten

To see a black kitten in your dream means that you are getting cuddled by people who are dear to you. It could be your family, relatives, or close friends. You love the attention and care they've given to you, but you want your freedom.

You'll have difficulty balancing the things you want to do and pleasing the people around you. Assess their opinions and weigh down the pros and cons of your decision. Additionally, always listen to what your intuition is telling you.

●    Mad Black Cat

Seeing a mad black cat means that you've done something terrible to someone behind their back. This dream foretells a possible confrontation that will lead to chaos if not managed.

●    Saving a Black Cat Dream

If you saw yourself saving a black cat, it indicates that you've accepted the dark feelings within you. It could be that you're no longer holding back the grudges you feel. You openly tell how bad you feel and confront others about what they are trying to do to you.

If you want to express your hurt or ill feelings, make sure that it won't escalate to chaos. Learn how to express yourself without hurting the feelings of others back. Let karma deal with them.

This dream also indicates that you're going to take back your power. You're not letting everyone's opinion get you. You will be living according to your own set of rules and not the rules imposed by others.

●    Missing Black Cat Dream

To see a cat catching a lizard in your dream signifies that you are letting all the things that weigh you down go. It could be your hurtful past or people who have caused you to suffer. You will no longer hold them. Instead, you'll toss them as if they're ashes of someone who passed away.

●    Seeing a Black Cat Dream

If you saw a black cat in your dream, it could mean that you have lost faith in life. It could be that you're struggling hard with something in real life. Also, you feel confused about which direction to go. A tiger in your dream has also the same meaning as seeing a black cat. Since they are from the same species, this dream suggests that you need to find a way to get out of this challenging situation. 

If you're losing faith in life due to hardships, make sure not to succumb to it. If you let the feeling of hopelessness get through you, you will experience even more sinister things. Hold on to faith no matter what happens because that will serve as your torch during your darkness.

Seeing a black cat chasing a rat in your dream could also mean that you'll have a conversation with someone that will end up badly.
