Dream about shooting an elephant is unfortunately a warning alert for consequences of your actions and what you should not do. There is a lesson that you need to acknowledge from a former relationship and apply it to a current life situation. There is something that you need to do or say, that is literally difficult to swallow. The dream is a clue for feelings of bitterness, jealousy or other negative feelings that are consuming you. An aspect of yourself is unable to freely express itself.
Shooting an elephant dream is a hint for your vulnerability, confusion and frailty. You need to let go of the past and quit dwelling on old emotions. You are not expressing your feelings and harbor some pent up anger. This dream represents a repression of your animalistic desires. Someone is forcing their views and beliefs on you.
If you dreamt about shooting an elephant:
You’ve worked hard to promote your business interests, and today it might pay off. Money, or contracts promising it, could come your way, as well as new opportunities to pursue success, perhaps in writing, teaching, or publishing. Friends and family members should be as excited as you are, and perhaps you’ll want to have a celebration of some sort. Relax for a while and enjoy your evening. You’ll be back at your tasks soon enough. You can count on it!
