A looming problem
A warning; unlike “monkey”, a gorilla is figurative of a heathen, savage-like person
Dreaming of this gentle, kindhearted animal almost always signifies a new friendship, or the reaffirming of an old friendship. Even if the gorilla appears to be on the rampage, this is still a positive symbol.
A gorilla that is angry or upset merely indicates minor misunderstandings with a friend.
In being so similar to the human being, gorillas have represented the more frightening aspects of mankind. As time passes, we recognize familiar aspects of a somewhat undeveloped personality coupled with a strong sense of family.
To dream that you see a gorilla indicates that you could be a bit rambunctious. You may be making up for your firm and unyielding demeanor in your waking life. This dream may also indicate your primitive instincts, your outgoing adventurousness, or some sexual energy that needs an outlet.
To see a gorilla in your dream suggests that a close friend wil be humiliated in some social situation. Or, you could suffer a painful misunderstanding or fight with a good friend.
