Fish Dream Meanings

Dream Meaning: From 39 Different Sources

fish image


Water is the element in which fish live, so there may be a strong emotional factor in a dream about fish; fish can also represent unconscious insights, as the unconscious is often represented by the sea, the fish being ideas flitting through it. According to Jung, fish are symbols used in the dream to mimic impulses that suddenly dart out of the unconscious and which have a frightening or redeeming effect in waking life. In the realm of sleep, fish are considered harbingers of inspiration and creativity, so a fish or schools of fish glimpsed beneath the surface often represent unconscious material or truths hidden within yourself. To dream of a fish’s eye symbolizes a watchful and diligent nature, but to see a dead fish signifies a worry about the way you interact with others. Is your lack of emotional warmth turning you into a cold fish? If you dreamed of a fish leaping out of the ocean before returning to the waves or fish caught in the net and brought to the surface, this may indicate the brief emergence of intuition.

If the fish are dirty, injured or ugly, this doesn’t mean that you are too; it just means the phase you’re currently in may be painful and tough. This is a time for patience and gentleness with yourself.

If fish are swimming just below the surface, they may represent the wisdom you have not yet brought to consciousness in waking life, whilst dead fish in your dream may suggest you have failed to express your basic urges or emotions. If, in your dream, the fish are in an aquarium, this may refer to aspects of your personality that are prevented from expressing themselves, or constricting emotional conditions in general. The dream may also refer to aspects of yourself that need to be nourished emotionally; a goldfish bowl may simply suggest boredom or a lack of privacy or confidentiality.

If you dream of a fish that needs your care, it is likely that you are a creative, sensitive person who has become trapped in a lifestyle that inhibits self-expression. According to Freud, fish are a phallic symbol because of their elongated shape, and, because females spawn hundreds of eggs, he also associated them with fertility.

The symbol of Pisces in the Zodiac is a fish, and dream fish may perhaps be reminding you of a person you know born under that sign. The fish is also one of the oldest symbols of Christianity, so a dream of a fish, fishing or eating fish may also reflect your desire for spiritual nourishment. Fish may also appear in your dream as messengers telling you that something does not feel right, that something ’smells fishy’; alternatively, they may be telling you that you are feeling misplaced or you don’t belong, like a ’fish out of water’. A fish on a hook may suggest accepting something completely, without hesitation or question; but be attentive to what being a ’wet fish’ means.

Universal Landscape: Ideas that swim in the unconscious.

Dreaming Lens: What was the container for the water that housed the fish? Was it natural or man-made? Was it the ocean? Was it clean and clear? Were the fish colorful? Was there one fish or an entire school? Did they feel dangerous or innocuous? Was the fish out of water? Was it dead? Was it being consumed as food?

Personal Focus: Bodies of water represent the unconscious mind. Below the surface and invisible from land is all the material that we are unaware of in our day-to-day lives. Most of the content of the unconscious mind is emotional in nature as symbolized by the ocean. The beings that inhabit these waters are the thoughts that swim freely about their watery habitat. Some are quite close to the surface while others dwell at depths of almost unimaginable darkness. This is also true of our unconscious thoughts. There are thoughts that are accessible from the surface and those that must be fished for, but that can be caught with intention and effort. Still others are completely inaccessible.

The size of the fish correlates to the scope of the idea being represented. Schools of fish are individuals that move in the same direction, so the more fish there are, the more agreement or concurrence of thought is being expressed. Fish that are colorful and interesting might indicate creative ideas that want to be expressed. The food chain of larger fish eating smaller fish is symbolic of the way ideas grow and get bigger in our minds. Fish that are dangerous or poisonous can relate to negative or destructive thinking.

Fish in a tank may be the ideas from your unconscious of which you are actually becoming aware. Containing them in a tank can indicate that you are ready to act on them, but containment could also indicate being stuck in a cycle of limiting your creative expression. A live fish out of water reacts violently. In a dream, this often symbolizes the awkwardness surrounding vulnerable expression. Eating fish is to experience satisfaction from the constructive use of your ideas and thoughts.

If your dream involves the act of fishing, there is an entirely different interpretation to consider. The act of fishing is the search for an idea that matches a particular desire. The process requires the proper tools, an element of attraction (bait), and the most important ingredient—patience.


By proximity to the sea, many cultures have considered fish to be sacred. In fact, in Asian rites, fish were worshiped; and priests, for this reason, were forbidden from eating fish. Given that fish inhabit the depths, they are also located at the unconscious level and their interpretation is associated with WATER. Therefore, when they emerge at the surface, they come to consciousness as a warning sign or to remind you of hidden emotions or past experiences. To dream that you try to catch a fish with your hands and it escapes expresses frustration and disappointment. Fish represent everything you want to hold on to, that turns out to be slippery. In addition, they are indicative of states of loneliness and isolation. To see fish inside of a fishbowl denotes a longing for freedom. The dreamer may feel emotionally withdrawn and their dream reveals a repressed desire for release. The Freudian school links fish exclusively to sexuality and associates it with the phallus. However, the cold blood that characterizes the fish seems to contradict this symbolism, attributing connotations of frigidity or impotence. Finally, we must not forget the connection between fish and fertility. This dream may announce that you are experiencing a period of personal growth. Fish oppose the material and mundane point of view of everyday life.

The fish symbolizes Christ. In many other religions, the fish has also served

to represent their gods. They are the spiritual abundance that feeds everyone. The dream may be highlighting all these qualities in you.

Fish hook It is a clear symbol of disappointment, betrayal, and deception.

Fisherman The figure of the fisherman is associated with preaching and ministry. But, the fisherman is also one who draws elements from the deep, that is to say, the unconscious.

You should pay attention to the elements that he pulls from the bottom of yourself and what they symbolize.
