Seeing lions in a dream may mean dignity, strength, courage, or overcoming a difficult emotional situation. Because the lion in nature is called the "king of the jungle," this dream can also symbolize great power, dominance or aggression. Although this is the most common interpretation for dreams associated with a lion, there can be other interpretations depending on a lion's action in the dream.

For example, a dream in which a lion chases a person can mean a situation where there is some form of aggression that the person is dealing with and must face. Some other dreams associated with lions deal with this animal either attacking or biting the dreamer. Similarly, in a dream, the color of the lion can also represent different things, such as a black lion may mean a negative or evil force.
