Traditionally, many ancient books claim unicorns to be pristine white stallions which symbolize nobility, purity, beauty, and grace of life. Whenever unicorns are depicted in a different way or through different perspectives, their traditional symbolism changes. This is the case which we encounter in both the purple unicorn and the black unicorn.

While black and white are complete opposites. It does not mean that black unicorns have the opposite symbolism as compared to white unicorns. The two still share some fundamental similarities and carry a similar conceptual structure. The primary difference comes from the point of focus on how the creature is viewed by those referencing it.

From ancient times, white unicorns are known as powerful creatures. Both in fantasy and in historical records which exist of them. In ancient times, it was believed that unicorns could easily exert the power of an elephant despite their differences in size & shape. Black unicorn is a perfect example of this extraordinary strength over fantasies.


Black Unicorn as Symbolism: The Concept of it

Black unicorns are symbolic of freedom, power, and strength. They are regarded as a true force of nature. While a white unicorn acts as a forest’s guardian, a black unicorn is never bound to any particular place or region. Black unicorn is regarded to do exactly as its heart desires. They are able to freely roam on around any part of the world.

Black unicorns are particularly well-known for their appearances in dreams and sweet messages people get from actions in their dream. To understand this significance, it is important to first understand what it means if you encounter a white unicorn while dreaming. If one were to dream of seeing a unicorn, the dream would symbolize high hopes, ideals, and key insights. If one were to dream of walking alongside a unicorn, it is often believed that one is on the right path in life or career choice that you’ve made. It means that one is following their true calling and purpose in life which they are destined for. On the other hand, riding on a unicorn indicates that one is bound to experience something incredibly great in their life very soon!

Whichever encounter one may have with a white unicorn, it’s assumed that positive things are bound to happen soon in their life. An encounter with a black unicorn carries similar meanings in relation to context. Although, it can mean that one may experience a challenge or some form of hardship in their course of life. Just for a record, this does not necessarily mean a bad thing! To encounter a black unicorn means that one is able to fully utilize their personal strength. It also signifies that they possess the power to overcome obstacles in order to reach new heights in life.

So, What is a black unicorn? Well, black unicorns are the most powerful type of unicorn in their complete family. They are raw and signify primal power. They are known as the strongest among the mythical unicorn family. If you ever run into a black unicorn in your dreams, know that you are just as strong in its eyes as well!
