On the other hand, you might be the one sharing the sheepish ideas to someone and discouraging them. It could be now or in the future.

You Might Face Rebellion.

This could be the reason for the dream if you happen to dream about angry sheep that are biting people or biting you. If the rebellion isn’t here yet, then it is coming.

Look for voices of dissent among your team members or those under you and keep a watchful eye and a backup plan on how to handle any rebellion that crops up.

You Have A Lot Of Compassion.

Sheep dreams could also be a sign of your great compassion towards those around you. You are touched when you see suffering in people and are always quick to offer help.

However, be careful that you don’t wear yourself thin. Your compassion might be your weakness and cause you to give up to the shirt on your own back.

This might result in the neglecting of your own needs and becoming an emotionally unstable individual yourself. Compassion is good but be compassionate with a solid plan and not on a whim.

You have a group mentality.

You could be having the tendency to do things with a group and are afraid of venturing out on your own. You feel safer within a group and tend to be more confident even in getting things done.

This might be a disadvantage because there will come a situation where you will not need a group to face it and will, therefore, need to face it alone. Try to get used to venturing out on your own without the safety net of numbers.

You will discover new paths on your own and your own courage and potential to do great things. In short, when you are alone, you will rediscover yourself.
