What Does It Mean When You Dream about Fish?

Dreams can have a lot of different meanings, depending on the context. The same for dreams that have fish in them. The takeaway here, is that no matter what you read on the internet, you need to apply discernment, and figure out whether or not a particular meaning applies to your dreams.

That said, have you dreamed of fish lately? Maybe it’s just because you want a tuna sandwich. Or maybe it’s something much more than that. Either way, let’s explore a few of the possible meanings that could apply to your fishy dreams.

1. You might be working through loss and disappointment

This applies, especially if you dreamed of dead fish. You might be dealing with the loss of power, or wealth. This would be your subconscious mind’s way of processing it all, so you can get back on your feet.

On the flip side, dreaming of dead fish could also symbolize the old making way for the new in your life.

2. You might be trying to avoid emotional issues

If you dreamed of being attacked by a big fish, it’s a sign that you are avoiding your emotions, and it’s time for you to face them head on, before it all snowballs into a reaction that feels beyond your control.

Avoiding your emotions because you don’t want to deal with them in the present, will make what would have been “small fry” to handle, morph into problems as bit as… The Meg. We couldn’t help referencing that.

3. You’re going to have a lot of luck, and money

This is true, of you dream of a big fish in the sea. Just like the sea is vast, and abundant, this dream could signify you’re about to receive, or are already experiencing a lot of luck and abundance, especially in the financial department. What’s not to love about that dream, right?

4. You’re ready to take on new ideas

Dreaming of eating and cooking fish, shows that you are ready to accept some new ideas and concepts about who you are as a person, in your real life. It’s a sign that you’re ready for the new. You are ready to accept realizations that you refused to in the past, for fear of what it would mean for you.

This dream symbol is good news, because it signifies your evolution and growth.

5. Your future will be amazing… or not

Rather ambiguous, we know, but this depends on a few things. First, this applies if you dreamt of fish in a fish pond. If the water in the fish pond was clear, then this is good news! It basically means you are going to enjoy a lot of good fortune, really soon, if you aren’t already.

So prepare for a lot of wonderful things to be thankful for, coming your way. If the water in the pond was murky, then it means you’re facing – or will face –  a very difficult, tough time, in which you can’t see clearly enough which path to take to help you make it through.

Again, we feel the need to state that you ought to take all these meanings like you would take your fish: well salted.
