Dreams About Foxes: Their meaning and symbolism.
As adorable as the fox is with its small body, fluffy tail and what looks like a smile on its face, the Fox is really a cunning and shrewd animal. There are plenty of popular sayings that reference the wily smarts of this creature, but in particular “Crazy as a fox” really carries the best description of the fox’s true attributes. Why? Because if you were to watch a fox long enough it may act crazy or seem like it is doing something out of character, but the fox knows precisely what it is doing when it behaves in bizarre ways!
The fox uses trickery when it hunts, and therefore, it becomes a dream symbol associated with cunningness and deception. They will stalk their prey, but will also sometimes play dead until they can pounce as well. And then … the clever little fox might start acting bizarrely, playing around, making prey wonder what it is doing … just until the fox can get close enough to attack!
So, what does all of this mean for you, the dreamer, looking to learn what a dream about a fox means? The fox not only stands for the act of being clever but of using all of the skills you have available to you to get the resolution you desire. The fox in your dream is a message that you will soon face challenges in your waking life that will take a bit of ingenuity to get through.
The dream of a fox can also indicate that someone might try to deceive you by presenting themselves as one thing but being very much another. Foxes are also vocal creatures and, as such, correspond to potential gossip. Foxes hunt alone too, and this may give you a sign that you have to face upcoming challenges alone, without the backing of others. So, do you think you are as “wily as a fox?” Are you prepared for the unique challenges ahead? Will you handle them in a playful light manner or will you feign a “fox’s sleep,” and try to lay low for a while until the difficulties pass?
If you dream that you are playing with the fox, your dream may warn that you are partaking of dangerous behaviors or that those who oppose you have the edge over you based on knowledge they have and you do not. Finally, the dream of a fox might reference the notion that “there’s a fox in your midst.” In other words, you trusting someone you shouldn’t and, in doing so, it’s just like allowing the “fox to guard the henhouse.”
