The meaning of Hare in dream | Dream interpretation
(see Animals, Rabbit)
A dream of wealth resulting from fertility of resource, and address. Symbol of nimbleness of wit and cleverness in Gypsy and African lore.
In past cultures, the hare was often given great respect. It stood for intuition, rejuvenation and resurrection, and thus of the immortal nature of humans.
Because of the hare’s habit of bounding up suddenly from hiding places, to dream of a hare suggests sudden, powerful intuition.
If the hare appears as a supernatural figure giving advice or as a sacrificial animal, it indicates the ability to draw on hidden potential and make great changes in life. On the other hand dreams about hares and rabbits can also symbolize timidity and inhibition as far as sex is concerned. Having said that, if the hare is running or in flight it could suggest that great changes are about to take place, and a positive change in status, environment and finance are on the cards.
If a person dreams he is eating a hare, this can suggest that he or she is envious of someone’s good fortune or that someone is envious of them.
There is a legend that a hare breeder has only to tell a hare to kill itself and it will do so, thus showing its capacity for self-sacrifice. Are you making sacrifices at the moment? Are you thinking clearly or doing yourself an injustice?
If your dream in- volved killing one, it pre- dicts some temporary up- sets; if you saw one rim- ing, it indicates a change of position and/or resi- dence; eating it signifies prosperity, and cooking it forecasts pleasant family events.
Because of its great fertility, the hare is associated with sex and, by extension, the female genitals. On the other hand, it is also considered a messenger of the unconscious and the weak but astute part of your personality, that which is found on the edge between conscious and unconscious.
Hares have always been considered figures of misfortune because of the popular belief that they were witches in disguise. Similarly, if a pregnant woman has this dream it meant that her child would have a cleft lip. Nevertheless, there are dream oracles that insist that a hare approaching you portends good luck.
If you see a hare escaping from you in a dream, you will lose something valuable in a mysterious way.
If you capture one, you will be the victor in a contest.
If you make pets of them, you will have an orderly but unintelligent companion.
A dead hare, betokens death to some friend. Existence will be a prosy affair.

The hare highlights intuition, spiritual insight and intuitive ‘leaps’. Intuition may be debased into ‘madness’ or capriciousness by fear or ignorance. Because of its association with the moon, the hare can, in its negative aspect, signify the priestess / witch aspect of femininity or the priest / sorcerer of the masculine. In its positive imagery, however, it is the radiant hare (often holding its baby in a cave) and thus the mother of god.
