  • Think deeper. Do they represent stability? Hard work? Are they good, kind, gentle giants? Or are they more just lumbering forest creatures, quite remote and unfamiliar to you? Do you feel a kinship or an admiration for them?

  • It is also significant that it was an elephant ring. A ring could imply eternity, and jewellery means it's something personal.

  • I wouldn't put my money on this, but I have a dream dictionary and it says that elephants show you are in good health. You are also about to met someone important who will influence your career.

  • From a psychological perspective, interpretation of dreams is a very individual thing. One image means something to one person and something completely different to someone else. It depends totally on the dreamer and the connotations they have, as well as cultural and ethnic archetypes etc.

  • To see an elephant in your dream, indicates that you need to be more patient or more understanding of others. Or perhaps there is a memory that you are holding on to for too long. You need to let go of the past. The elephant is also a symbol of power, strength, faithfulness and intellect. Alternatively, the elephant's introverted personality may be a reflection of your own personality. In particular, if you see a white elephant, then it symbolizes royalty.

    To see a circle in your dream, symbolizes perfection, completeness, immortality and/or wholeness. On a less positive note, it may also mean that you are going around in circles in some situation. Or the circle can indicate monotony and endless repetition.
