Only when we move through life in the spirit of love for all beings can we melt the barriers that separate us from others, from other life forms, and from the beautiful mystery which is our own magical and spiritual gift.

Deer Meaning and Messages

In general, the Deer symbolism is often a sign not to be too hard on yourself. In other words, you must calm the voice of the self-critic and treat yourself with gentleness and understanding. Thus, the Deer meaning prompts you to be yourself and continue along your path. Moreover, seek out your inner treasures and use them generously to help those around you. This spirit animal also teaches that you must trust that kindness and graciousness will be well received.

Just like the Chimpanzee and the Seahorse, Deer symbolism is a reminder that we cannot push towards change in others. Instead, we gently nudge them in the right direction with love and understanding. Therefore, the deer meaning prompts us to lead by doing and showing the way.

This creature is also a messenger of serenity, can see between shadows and hear unsaid words. Thus, the Deer symbolism teaches us to maintain our innocence and gentleness so that we can share our open-heartedness with others.

Deer Totem, Spirit Animal

Similar to the Cat and the Dog, Deer totem people know how to use the power of gentleness. They do this by touching the hearts and minds of the wounded beings in their lives. Folks with this spirit animal have a propensity to see new innocence and freshness in life everywhere. They also invariably feel the lure of new adventures. These people often have a link to the arts, especially poetry and music.

People with this power animal are also keen observers and can see well in low light. They are also very compassionate, gentle, and loving people. Folks with the Deer totem have nobility of purpose and a pure heartedness that reflects Buddha’s teachings. They also radiate peacefulness that generates a feeling of being safe. Therefore, these people form deep friendships and are truly beloved by all.

Deer Dream Interpretation

In general, a Deer dream symbolizes grace, compassion, gentleness, meekness, and natural beauty. It has feminine qualities and may point to the feminine aspect within yourself. The vision may also represent independence, alertness, and virility. Consider the symbol to be a pun for someone who is “dear” to you. Alternatively, the Deer dream represents vulnerability and naivety. As a result, others may take advantage of you and your gullibility.

If the animal is black, then it means that you are not acknowledging or are rejecting the feminine qualities in you. You may not be in tune with your feminine side.

To dream that you hunt or kill one of these creatures suggests that you are trying to suppress those feminine qualities.

To see a buck in your dream represents alertness, virility, masculine sexuality, and assertiveness. If there are two bucks fighting, then it signifies male aggression. You are trying to dominate or take control over some area of your life. Alternatively, the dream may be a pun on a dollar.

  3. I experienced a deep connection with deer from a very young age. From then on, I constantly see them, and they have never ran in front of my car. Today a deer ran in front of my car, and I know you;’re supposed to just keep going, but I couldn’t. I swerved off of the road and actually lost one of my mirrors. The deer was not hit or harmed in any way. I just want to know if they are trying to tell me something or remind me of something I’m forgetting. Please help if you have any insight of ideas! I love my guids anf I would never want to harm or detatch from them. I’m just do confused.

  4. After about practically a year, i went to go visit my beloved boyfriend at the cemetery today. And as I was driving towards the gravesite where he was at, I swear I saw a deer pass alongside of the other sites. The deer was literally just hopping around and then I went to look again, and it just disappeared. but before this, I have just been so overwhelmed over his death even though it’s been 3 years and I keep thinking about him…
    And I’m thinking, did I really see a deer?? 🙈😂

  5. A few weeks ago I hit a pregnant deer on my way to work and she died. My car was totaled. I can’t stop thinking about this and what it may mean. Please help!

    1. You were exactly where you were supposed to be, and so was she. You are compassionate and empathetic, and I have heard that sensitive humans are gentle doorways to the next world when it comes to the death of a living being. By you being there, she passed into the next world in a more loving and beautiful way than she might have otherwise.
      Spirit gave you the gift of a totaled car. You would possibly feel much worse if you had had no “consequences”, while she lost her life.

      This may or may not be true for you, but it is a possibility. Love to you, and love to all.
