Unicorn Spiritual Meaning

Unicorns are among the most popular mythical beasts in existence, and have certain spiritual meanings attached to them. Depending on the person, they can represent many different things. They are seen as an allegory for the journey of Christ in Christianity, for example. They are also a symbol of innocence, hope and good luck for many ancient cultures, and this belief still persists today.

If what unicorns mean to you is totally different from what we're going to talk about in this article, that's okay! These legendary creatures have a special meaning for all of us. It's interesting to look at what has been believed through the ages about unicorns, but keep in mind that what you believe is just as important 😊!

1) Unicorns in Christianity

But what do unicorns have to do with Christianity? The answer comes from a translation in the Biblethat mentions unicorns. The King James Bible mentions them several times, although recent translations replace the word unicorn with another horned animal.

Unicorn Religion

At that time, the word "unicorn" must have had a completely different meaning than the one we know. It literally means "a horn", and many animals have horns: the rhinoceros for example, which was at one time considered to be a unicorn, as we see in the History of the Unicorn. Finally, it is not surprising that the Bible mentions this word, and it is unlikely to be our white horned horse.

It is interesting to note, however, that the unicorn symbolises the life of Christ. It is therefore understandable why they are associated with innocence and purity as virtues. In the same way, the magic of their horns, which can heal and purify water from poison, can be compared to the healing powers of Christ. Just like the masculine power, which has long been associated with unicorns.

Unicorn Christiannism

Immortality is also a common feature between unicorns and Christ. Christ rose from the dead and was therefore immortal. To draw a parallel, unicorns are able to pass between the world of the living and the world of the dead, just as Christ bridged the gap between Earth and heaven, and between mortals and God. 

2) Tribal Meaning of Unicorns

Unicorns also have a meaning for many people living in tribal form. Mostly positive meanings: the most common of these is that of inner strength and mysticism. Unicorns are believed to be able to bring out the inner power of individuals!

Unicorns are also thought to represent the opening of a third eye (symbolic, of course!). An eye that is turned towards ourselves, that is, the deep exploration of our being. People who are able to become one with the spirit of a unicorn are said to be able to access a great knowledge of their inner self and a great capacity for introspection.

But that's not all: in most tribal cultures, unicorns represent :

  • Purity of mind and body
  • Serenity
  • Honesty
  • Majesty.

People who can befriend unicorns, especially with a mental link, are highly respected.

3) Spiritual Meaning of Dreams with Unicorns

If we explore the meanings of unicorn dreams, we learn that seeing a unicorn in a dream represents something very powerful. It is usually their clearest form of manifestation to humans. Unicorns are fearful, so seeing them in dreams allows for clear communication.

It is now known that seeing a unicorn in a dream is not harmless, and is not like other dreams which are mostly meaningless. Their purpose is not necessarily to show the dreamer which path to take, but to remind him or her that there is a path, whatever the situation, and that he or she can move forward. Unicorns are therefore a symbol of hope, as their light helps to illuminate the path in a benevolent and peaceful way.

Unicorn Spiritual Meaning

So we come back to Christianity: just like unicorns, Christ was considered a companion and a teacher. Have you ever dreamt of a unicorn, for example, thanks to a unicorn bedding? If so, it probably wanted to push you to continue on the path you are on, and remind you to always keep hope ✌️!

As we said, unicorns are a symbol of power. So meeting one in a dream also means you have to take action for something. This is the case in most cultures: it is believed that something radical will change for the dreamer. Unicorns are therefore companions that accompany us through trials.

If you dream of a unicorn attacking you or being aggressive, it is a sign of bad luck. When you meet the unicorn, it will be furious if you have done something to offend its innocence and purity. This means that you have done something wrong and that you must make amends for it.

5) The Colour of Unicorns

As you probably know, there are many types of unicorns. White unicorns, which are the most famous, are usually a sign of good luck. If you see a unicorn, it probably means that everything is going well for you, or that you will soon overcome difficulties.

Black unicorns do not mean the opposite, even though that is what is generally thought. Rather, they carry the meaning of inner strength and power. If you see a black unicorn, it will probably be there to remind you that even if you are facing a trial, you have the strength to triumph.

Unicorn Colors

You may see unicorns in other colours, or even completely different types such as the Qilin, the Chinese unicorn. Remember that we all have a particular interpretation and connection to unicorns: we all see them in a different way. The meaning you give them is just as important as the meaning they have taken on over the centuries. 

6) Unicorns in Religion: Atheism

We have seen that unicorns are linked to Christianity: why talk about atheism which is the opposite? Because atheism is also part of what unicorns symbolise. And atheism is also part of spirituality.

Recently, a symbol of atheism has appeared: the Invisible Pink Unicorn. This is a contradictory term because it doesn't actually make sense: how can a unicorn be both pink and invisible?

 Invisible Pink Unicorn

This is a frustrating sign for atheists, because this invisible pink unicorn is paradoxical. It actually symbolises the impossibility of proving the non-existence of God and religions. In the same way that it is not possible to prove the non-existence of a hypothetical invisible pink unicorn!

7) The Unicorn Today

Nowadays, unicorns generally have very positive connotations. They are said to bring luck and happiness to anyone who manages to meet one of these rare creatures! If you do meet one, it will be a unique moment and you should spend as much time as possible with it, as it is a gift from God.

Seeing a unicorn brings joy, a sense of peace and satisfaction. These creatures are so pure that they emanate a sense of tranquility, which is contagious to all those around them!

The Unicorn Today

Over the centuries, unicorns have therefore represented many different things, depending on the context, their colour, their mood, etc. They are mostly positive signs, although an aggressive unicorn may show you that you need to fix a mistake you made. On the whole, unicorns are guides who teach you that you must continue to follow the path you have taken. They protect all those who have faith in them.
