Elephants hold a symbolic meaning in astrology, wherein, ‘elephant dreams’ are considered to have specific meanings. The actions and behaviour of these elephants in the dreams are of particular importance in interpreting what they stand for.
The flapping of its ears, dancing of its trunk, the prominence of its gigantic spine and royal tusks, the depth of its benevolent eyes while it strolls around with charming calm and composure, at once surrounds you with a feeling of safeguard, kindness, and respect. Such is the exuberance of this genial form, that has been on this planet for more than 50 million years. Elephants have long been associated with humans, their emotions, and their stories. They have been subjects of mythologies, religions, battles, and innumerable other interpretive or literal practices of expression.
The charismatic nature of this being has made it an element of strong symbolism across various cultures all over the world. Asian regions like India and China have dense mythologies which are packed with rich symbolism and multi-layered depictions of various elements of nature. Elephants are found in eminent numbers across these regions, and have been a part of their civilizations for a long time. Evidently, elephants have made way into people’s conscience, and consequently, their art.
Elephants, in general, symbolize the qualities of wisdom, strength, courage, longevity, patience, honour, and stature.
