represent the potential of an adult animal (see individual species of animal), though with a much greater chance to control and later assimilate with a higher mind the instincts or other meaning of the animal symbol.
often express the childishness of the dreamer and the inability to cope with pressures of adult life.
adult animal with young: an aspect of maternal feeling in the instinctual realm.
do not represent for the dreamer such a threat as the adults and therefore can be better controlled in e.g. a game and the dreamer can learn to understand them, which is the gradual assimilation of the instinctual part.
playing: unless the dreamer is involved in their game, this dream image allows the dreamer to more easily recognize his own instinctual dependencies in everyday life.
rearing of young: symbolizes work with one's instinctual nature.
marsupials in the mother's sac: in this image the dreamer recalled his own prenatal development and undisturbed stay in his mother's womb.
transformation of young into a child: confirmation of transformation of instinctual content into emotional.
only rarely can the young of some creature relate to a certain person and his fate.
