Rhinoceros Symbolism

Trust your inner wisdom. Don't look at appearance only - go beyond and trust your internal senses.

If Rhinoceros has come across your path:

Rhinoceros is letting you know that you need to look more closely at everything around you because things are not what they seem. Are you seeing lack instead of abundance? This animal is here to remind you to appreciate the expansive bounty that surrounds you. Stop and give thanks to the infinite miracles occurring in every moment of your life. Use your spiritual eyes, not your physical eyes to see the truth and maintain a close connection with “Mother Earth” as you expand your inner knowledge to a whole new level.

If Rhinoceros is your Animal Totem:

You are for the most part a solitary and wise person choosing to spend a great deal of time alone. You enjoy the comfort of your own company and are comfortable with yourself. You have a very close relationship with the ancient wisdom of your soul and have a lot to share about what is real and how to live. For the most part you are a self made success and an achievement seeking powerhouse in your chosen field. Being a workaholic is a natural part of who you are.

If Rhinoceros has come into your Dream:

To see a rhinoceros in your dream suggests that you need to forge ahead toward your goals. Do not take “no” for an answer or let any obstacles sidetrack you from your destination. Alternatively if the Rhino is being aggressive or charging make sure that you are not getting carried away with your own ideas and intentions. Steamrollering your way through things is a very self defeating behavior. Discern what is real and what is not.

Additional Associations for Rhinoceros:


  • My dream was about me taking matters into my own hands, taking revenge on people who took me for granted the people there looked mutated (doing normal things) and some possessed (standing in front of walls or into nothing, speaking but without actions) nobody had eyes either. But the animals did.
    After I did that I was running away from that place and there where sickly horses running in distrust. Then I noticed a rhino charging almost hitting me, ( I think they where attacking the rhino). but i managed to dodge it. I keep on running away then i black out then awaken running even faster than I could. And higher-up. ( I wasn’t sure if I some how got on top of the rhino or not). But glancing back from where I was fleeing I noticed the rhino was gone but the horses where still there ,but in calm grazing. With the destruction I left in flames. In this dream I was able to speak and decide my own actions.

  • Interpretation thoughts? I had a dream where I was standing next to this girl that said, “If they wanted you they would invite you.” I looked up and there was a stuffed Rhino head on the wall. All I could think was, “hey I want that Rhino if they don’t.” Then I woke up…🤔😕

  • i dreamt a rhino was trapped within a tight circular border made of rocks and it was trying to break out by smashing onto it several times. it could barely take a few steps back and hit again, i was just standing on high ground staring at it smash from afar

  • My partner keeps dreaming he is a rhino and that he is running over people. It’s happened three nights in a row.

  • I was just dreaming about rhino floating around the sky, fly one on one with this type of angel. (He has wings and somehow riding a horse haha). It was beautiful because even in my dream I realize that this is a sign my spirit guide trying to show me. Very beautiful and serene feeling, there’s no fear vibrating from them also. 🙂

  • An elephant is on free run in a residential locality immediately followed by rhinoceros in dream. A silky brown shining German Shepherd big dog jumps of a chariot. Inculding me people run helter skelter. This is my dream..can anyone interpret?

  • I had a heard of rhinoceros in my dream including myself as one of them 2 nights in a row. I am taking it as a sign from a higher power. We were all playing in our somewhat natural habitat. I felt very much so at peace with these dreams. I have been studying totem animals and, I asked a little while ago for my spirit animal to present themselves and I think this was my sign.

  • I saw the rhino in the night sky shaped by gleaming stars in my dream. Not sure what it means but even in my dream I knew it was significant.

  • Thanks, love the info.
    Did a Ceremony in a lineage Im studying called Journey to the Underworld to find my Power Animal. There are 17 in my class, and the teacher has been doing this for 2 decades. My Power animal was the Rhino and so was the guy next to me. The teacher has never had a Rhino as someones Power Animal, and we both did and were next to each other.

  • The other night I had a dream that has stayed with me. I was in the kitchen at my grandmother’s house (who passed away several years ago) and a black bear came to the back carport and started tearing things up and seemed to be making his way toward the house and me. My boss’ German Shepherd jumped in and saved us by fighting the black bear. It really looked like he was going to be mangled, but at the end, he was well and fine. Then, I was in a field. There was a rhinoceros who appeared to be angry and I thought he would charge. I was trying to find a hiding place (in the open field). Before the rhino could charge, it turned into an elephant, who also seemed angry and I thought would charge, but then the elephant turned into 2 elephants that were passive. I still haven’t completely deciphered it. Good info on this site though – thanks!

  • This is so weird! Someone brought these cards into work and I didn’t even know why the staff were picking a card. Once I read the one I chose outloud it all clicked. Maybe this is the universes way of saying I am what I am.
