What is the meaning of 'Sheep' in dreams?


To dream you see a flock of sheep feeding, is a very favorable omen; it denotes success. To dream you see them dispersing, and running away from you, shows that pretended friends are endeavoring to do you an injury, and that your children will meet with persecution and great troubles. In love, such a dream shows your sweetheart to be fickle and little calculated to make you happy. To dream you see sheep shearing, is indicative of loss of property and the affections of the person you love; also of your liberty. To dream you are shearing them yourself, shows that you will gain an advantage over some person who meant to harm you, and that you will get the better of difficulties and marry the object of your affection.

The Witches' Dream Book; and Fortune Teller by A. H. Noe


To dream of shearing them, denotes a season of profitable enterprises will shower down upon you. To see flocks of sheep, there will be much rejoicing among farmers, and other trades will prosper. To see them looking scraggy and sick, you will be thrown into despair by the miscarriage of some plan, which promised rich returns. To eat the flesh of sheep, denotes that ill-natured persons will outrage your feelings.

Ten Thousand Dreams Interpreted by Gustavus Hindman Miller


To landowners or those engaged in any agricultural pursuits sheep are an omen of success and prosperous dealing; to others this sign implies that they will receive assistance from unexpected quarters.

Telling Fortunes By Tea Leaves, by Cicely Kent


To dream of ditches, steep mountains, rocks, and other eminences, foretells danger and misfortune: expect thieves to rob your dwelling, or that your children will be undutiful, and bring you into trouble; if you are in love, it foretells unhappiness if you marry your present sweetheart: if you are in trade, it denotes loss of goods, and other trouble: to farmers, it foretells accidents to their live stock, loss of sheep, &c.
