- symbolizes the dreamer's unconscious desire to control instincts that appear in the circus in the form of animals; it is a desire to become the tamer of one's passions since the dreamer subconsciously realizes that they are pulling him into unwanted states.
- or a circus tent: a reduced allegory of the world in which all phenomena are a form of processes taking place both within a person and in the human world; circus performers symbolize the human role in life on this planet (how often it has been said: "We are merely actors on the earth's stage and it is up to us whether we play in a horror, tragedy, farce or comedy.")
- circus wagons, trailers are an allegory of a homeless and aimless life, usually with limited emotional relations.
- seeing or performing acrobatic circus attractions: it's time to stop occupying ourselves with speculation, calculation and cunning; it's time to focus like an acrobat on his climatic performance, i.e. focus on performing a single task and not wasting energy on many things at once.
- juggling animals, animals practicing circus acts: the dreamer's will has the power to practice with instincts as he wishes.
- circus horse: you are refusing knowledge and, instead, boasting of an act that only has significance in a restricted process.
- tamer: symbolizes the dreamer's unconscious desire to control instincts that appear in the form of animals; it is a desire to control one's passions since the dreamer subconsciously realizes that they are pulling him into unwanted states.
