Dreaming of a kangaroo or having a kangaroo appear as a spirit guide or power animal can have several different meanings.
In dreams, the meaning greatly depends on the context of the dream and what types of things you might be going through in your regular daily life.
As a spirit animal and power animal, the kangaroo can appear to us to remind us to stay strong in our lives.
Kangaroos are native to Australia, however this does not necessarily mean you have to be from Australia for one to appear in your life as a spirit guide or in your dreams.
Today it is possible to see a kangaroo on books, films, television shows, or even in person at the zoo, so many people are quite aware of kangaroos, even though they may have never been to Australia to see one in its natural habitat.
Kangaroos as a Spirit Animal
The kangaroo can appear to us as a spirit guide with many important messages. The kangaroo is a reminder for us to be willing to leap into new opportunities and be ready to shift into new realities.
When a kangaroo appears in your life through signs and symbols, it is here to guide and support you through new opportunities and changes in your life.
There are many qualities and characteristics of the kangaroo that can be applied as wisdom in our lives.
Here is What the Kangaroo Can Teach Us
Take a Leap:
One of the most distinguishing characteristics of the kangaroo is the way it leaps when it moves. These leaps allow the kangaroo to cover a large distance in a short amount of time.
A kangaroo can suggest to you that you are on a path for fast development and growth and that your goals will be met swiftly and with ease. You are ready to start reaching new great heights in your life!
Kangaroos are surprisingly strong animals. Their hind legs used for leaping are quite powerful. A kangaroo may appear as a power animal for some, especially because it can help one learn ways to develop strength through difficult situations in one’s life.
If you are going through challenges in life, the power of the kangaroo can help you learn how to navigate through these challenges with strength.
It’s common to see male kangaroos boxing each other – sometimes this is a form of playing but other times it can be a way for the males to establish dominance.
While seeing a kangaroo rarely means you will be in the boxing ring, it often is a sign for being strong and fighting against the opposing forces in your life. It may be a sign that you need to stand up for yourself in what matters in life.
You may also see a kangaroo when you are fighting a battle against illness, injury or addiction. The kangaroo can remind us to tap into our own willingness to fight and draw on the strength to put up the fight in overcoming these challenges.
Focus on Family:
One of the most interesting traits of a kangaroo is how the mothers keep their young in a pouch. If you ever watched the cartoon Winnie the Pooh, you may remember the characters Kanga and Roo. The kangaroo can remind us to tap into our mothering and nurturing instincts.
If you are a parent, the kangaroo can help you stay strong through the challenges of parenting and to nurture your own children. If you are pregnant or trying to conceive, a kangaroo can sometimes appear as a power animal to help you stay strong through the process.
Be Involved in Community:
These animals are very social animals, and they live in large groups together. Being able to stick with a community helps them with survival. Kangaroos can live together in small groups of only a few kangaroos to very large groups of over kangaroos together! The term for this group is called a mob, and is usually led by the most dominant male.
Sometimes a mob will break up into smaller groups, such as when a group gets too big for the habitat to support the needs of the group for food and water. These smaller groups will move onto different areas. Sometimes younger males and females will move on to start their own new mobs.
The kangaroo serves as a reminder to us that we cannot survive by ourselves in this world – we need to learn how to work together and get along with others.
What Does it Mean to Dream of a Kangaroo?
Kangaroos can often appear in our dreams. Since they can be commonly seen around the world, it is not unusual for one to show up in a dream, especially if you are experiencing something in life that would benefit from the wisdom of a kangaroo.
Here are some common dream meanings if you dream about a kangroo:
If you see a mother kangaroo carrying her baby joey: This could suggest you are having very maternal emotions and feel protective over someone or something that is important to you.
To see a kangaroo leaping great distances: This means you will be able to see fast and rapid progress and development towards reaching a goal.
To see a kangaroo hopping around: This can mean that you are continually starting new projects and not seeing them through to completion. Are you going too fast through something that demands your attention?
If you are kicked by a kangaroo: This is an indicator that you feel that you are under scrutiny or attack from someone in your work or social group.
To see kangaroos boxing: Is there something or someone you are fighting in life? This could be a literal translation, such as if you have been quarreling or arguing with a partner or friend – or it could mean you are fighting something else in life – such as battling to overcome illness or addiction.
If you dreamt of a kangaroo during a challenging time in your life, ask yourself what steps might help you in overcoming the obstacles or resolving the conflicts?
Remember, you are the best interpreter of your own dreams. Consider your current life situation, your feelings toward kangaroos and experience with them as well as the use of your own feelings and intuition toward the dream.
