Seeing a black panther might also mean you have been allowing fear and anxiety to take over your thoughts, and that it’s time to stop allowing it to get the best of you. You are a strong and willful person who has enough inner strength to face your concerns.

Attacked by a panther

dreams about a black panther

If during your dream you are attacked by a black panther, then this means there is a person who has been spreading nasty rumors about you.

It’s important you try and discover who this person is, as the gossip will only continue to grow unless you confront your rival. Look for someone you would not usually trust, and maybe even someone you are forced to spend time with even if you don’t particularly like them. Perhaps it’s a coworker or a neighbor.

Try to think back and figure out who is holding a grudge against you. If you feel it’s deserved, then apologize and try to create a connection to this person: They’ll most likely stop after feeling the problem has been solved. If there isn’t any motivation for this behavior, then you’ll need to find a firmer approach.

If during the dream you kill the panther, then this means you’ll manage to clear your name of all slander with little to no struggle. If the black panther is the one to murder you, or harms you harshly, then this means you’ll have a hard time getting others to believe your version of events.

Stalked by a panther

Having a dream about the black panther stalking you and moving closer to you, but not outright attacking you, this is still a bad sign.

It means that a manipulative person in your life is holding secrets from you, and unless unmasked, they will bring you great harm, even if they don’t intend to. It’s important you get those around you to trust you so that you may clear the air of all harmful secrets.

Seeing a prowling panther growling at you and showing its fangs, then this means the problem will be coming from your work life instead of your personal life. Try and think back on any mistakes you might have committed lately and try to fix them before it’s too late to do anything about it.

This dream might also imply that someone is sending negative energies your way, so a good cleansing might be in order. It’s also a good idea to make sure your loved ones aren’t keeping grudges against you, as these energies will only become darker and more negative in the long run. Sitting down and talking about the unspoken issues might solve this problem altogether.

Playful panther

If instead of acting aggressive or aloof, the black panther acts friendly or even playful towards you, then this is a great sign and means you’ll soon be welcoming good luck into your life.

Having a panther act like a domestic cat around you, such as purring and allowing you to pet it, then this means you’ll soon be receiving a piece of unexpected good news. This is probably a secret someone has been keeping from you. They have finally gathered the courage to speak to you about it, but it will undoubtedly good news, such as a pregnancy, a trip or any other situation that brings big changes into your life.

If the panther rubs its body against your feet or legs, then this implies you’ll receive good news at work. It might be a raise, a promotion or perhaps an opportunity to continue growing professionally. If you are not satisfied with your current job, this dream indicates you’ll soon be getting a better job offer.

Other symbolisms

The black panther also holds other meanings that can be highly relevant depending on different aspects of your dreams.

They represent balance, power, and self-reliance, showing you that your true strength comes from within and you should stop trying to find it in others. By being confident in your own skills, you’ll be far more likely to succeed.

It’s also linked to shadows, beauty, and grace, so seeing it moving in and out of the darkness might mean you’ll soon meet a mysterious and elegant person who’ll you be enthralled by. Be wary of this man or woman, as they’ll bring bad news in the long run. It’s better to admire their beauty from a distance and avoid the harm they might cause after a while.

  1. I dreamed of giving birth to a black panther and it grows too fast… Everybody is afraid of it but it search for me and come to me as a child for hunger. I breast feed him and feed him fish also thinking my milk won’t be sufficient for him.
    In real I gave birth to a baby boy and in lot of confusion on returning office after maternity leave.
    So is this dream about my baby or me?

    • I’m 8 months pregnant with a baby boy and just dreamed a panther came into my home and tried to attack me and my dog but I chased him outside. He attacked another dog and the owner didn’t seem to care.

      I wonder if it’s a symbol for our protective instincts as mothers- fearing the danger that may harm our babies. Maybe we worry we won’t be able to protect them or be able to handle our new responsibilities. That’s how I read it, because it’s so specific to our situation. Dreams are a manifestation of our own psyche, that’s what we are really battling. The panther is just our guide through the subconscious.

  4. In my dream the panther first shows me affection by licking over my face a few times but then attacks me out of nowhere which wakes me up.

  5. Had a dream a black panther was in the house hallway. At the end of the hallway were two little girls, the cat between me and the girls. There was a door in the hallway that leads to a narrow hallway and then outside and the thought came to me to open the door and let the cat out to the outside. I opened the door, the cat followed be into the other hallway that leads to the outside. It seemed I was hungry and looking for food, I saw a tray of what looked like smores on a platter and I ate one. Thought came to give a smore to the cat, but before I could the cat jumped up on the tray and was sniffing them. I was worried then the mess he would make out of the tray filled with smores. I then opened the door to the outside and thought I let the cat out, but after I shut the door and walked back to the original hallway, I saw the cat there. At that point it seemed I sensed the cat had a natural hunger I thought I better get it out of the house, so it could satisfy that natural hunger and finally managed to lead it back down the narrow hallway and outside. The whole time I didnt really sense danger it seemed the cat just cautiously followed me around. What is the meaning?
