Black coloured animals typically call out to our deeper feelings—as they are dark—they symbolize the shadows of our thoughts, the “nighttime” of our minds, the dreams we keep tucked away from the forefront of our everyday thoughts.

Rabbits are symbolic of family, community, awareness, caution and curiosity. Black is also a symbol of silence, perhaps trying to tell us to take assurance and peace in our own stillness—silence may be the best answer.
