Cowboys are symbols of masculinity, toughness and ruggedness so perhaps you want to be more like this in your waking hours.
You have control over your instincts and your life in general. You are sure about what you are doing and so you aren’t worried about the future.
On the other hand, you may want someone in your life to embody more of these traits- a partner or friend perhaps. Or are you looking for someone who ticks all of these boxes in a romantic interest?
Cowboys are also synonymous with freedom, taking chances and adventure- is this something you crave? If so what can you do to fulfil this dream?
Are you about to take a big risk? If so, this could be why you dreamed about a cowboy because they are linked with careless behaviours.
If you were or saw a lone cowboy, perhaps you are feeling alone right now and could use some support. Do you need to be honest with someone in order to get this? Or are you self-sufficient and happy to be by yourself?
If the cowboy was surrounded by other cowboys, then you may have more people who are willing to help you than you think. You just need to ask for their assistance when you need it.
Being friends with a cowboy in your dream shows that you know who your mates are and who will be there for you when you need it most. You tend to judge people on their actions and it has served you well so far.
Finally, cowboys are thought to represent strength- perhaps you have the ability to cope with whatever life throws at you. It’s possible that something has come along that has made you question this about yourself, but you will come through the other side just as you always do.
