The minotaur is a mythical beast – half man and half bull – that was trapped within the first labyrinth created. Spiritually, it is symbolic of man’s instinctive urges overcome by sheer bravery.
Psychological / emotional perspective: In dreams, depending on our personality, the minotaur can be seen as a figure either to be pitied or feared. His conquest is part of the hero’s journey to self-actualization or realization of our own power.
Material aspects: As a recognizable fabulous beast, viewed from a practical perspective, the overcoming of the minotaur denotes the solving of problems in a well thought and logical manner (mind against instinct).
One has a dangerous instinct buried deep in one’s soul.
