You are being asked to step into a leadership role in this situation. You have the tools, the knowledge and the instinct to get through it. Show them all the way.-Alligator
In general, Alligator symbolism reminds us to look for opportunities to ingest new knowledge and wisdom. The spirit animal represents all of the unbridled creative forces of the world, including the fury and ferocity of reptilian primal energy. Therefore, this reptile is the keeper and protector of all knowledge. It is the end of one period in your life and the beginning of something new.
When Alligator symbolism makes an appearance in your life, like the Lobster, you can be sure that this is a new period of growth and regeneration for you. You must be sure to give yourself time to integrate all of the changes. In other words, keep yourself balanced as you move through this period.
It is also possible that Alligator meaning is letting you know that you have been too complacent of late. Sure, things have been moving forward, albeit a bit slowly. However, the Universe is putting you on notice that it is time to shake things up a bit. Get ready for a wild ride.
Alternatively, your Alligator meaning may be letting you know that you need to digest what you have just learned and experienced. You must be sure to integrate everything before moving on to the new.
Those of you with the Alligator totem have a gift for bringing harmony into your life in ways that help you to survive and prosper. Moreover, you allow others to be their authentic selves and work hard at being your authentic self at all times. As an Alligator totem, you are usually in touch with your real emotions in any given situation. Additionally, you know and understand that what you project emotionally is vital for others to see. Also, you have a lot of patience in the chaos of other people’s emotions, as well as a deeper understanding of what they are genuinely expressing. Thus, you are a gifted healer in the emotional realms.
To have an Alligator dream, similar to the Falcon, is symbolic of freedom, hidden strength, and power. Conversely, it also forewarns of hidden danger. Someone near you is giving you bad advice and is trying to sway you into poor decisions. Because this reptile can live in water and on land, they also represent your conscious and subconscious and the emotional and rational. Perhaps something is coming to the surface, and you are on the verge of some new awareness.
Alternatively, the Alligator dream may be an aspect of yourself and your aggressive and “snappy” attitude. To dream that you are chased or bitten by this reptile denotes disappointments in love and business. If you feel that this animal is hunting you in your dream, beware that someone close to you has made plans to undermine your authority.
Oddly, when you dream of these reptiles in pink or blue, you can expect a new child in the family.
