But depending on the type of water you are in and the state you found your fish in determines whether or not the message you are about to receive will be a positive one. It’s not only about the animal, but it’s about the surrounding as well.

What Does It Mean To See A Fish In Your Dream? 

Seeing fish in your dream is a positive sign, but as mentioned, it really depends on the situation surrounding the experience within your dream. Ask yourself:

  • How did you feel when you first saw the fish?
  • How was the water? Was it clear? Was it murky? Was it rough?
  • Did you feel safe?
  • Did the fish want to do you harm in your dream?
  • How many fish were there? Was there only a single one?
  • Were there any other outstanding events that took place that you should focus on?

If you answered in a negative way, then dreaming of fish could represent something terrible. The environment is critical when determining the temperature of the dream.

For example, did you see a fish tangled in a net? Was the fish struggling? Was the fish hurt? Was the fish dying? This cannot be interpreted in a positive light.

What Is The Spiritual Meaning Of Fish? 

A fish alone can mean many things spiritually. Here we will go through what it means spiritually to see a fish in a dream. 

 Fishes are a clear symbol of spiritual happiness, truth, and fertility. Think about Jesus and the bible.

In the Christian bible, Christ had many encounters with fish and one might choose to interpret spiritually based on those experiences. 

For example, in John 21:6, it says ”And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.”

With the verse above, one can say fish spiritually symbolizes great blessings.

Do Fish Dreams Mean Pregnancy?  

This depends. There are people who believe that fish eggs are related to pregnancy. So, if you happen to see fish eggs in one of your dreams, you might get pregnant in the near future.

But dreaming of fish does not necessarily mean an upcoming pregnancy.

What If You Dream About Swimming With Fish?

If in your dream the fish are swimming toward the surface of the water, this is great news! That means that you will see wealth, love, and even happiness in the near future.

Are you swimming in deep water? How about murky water? That’s a different story! This can mean some difficult trouble ahead. Expect some future issues.

If You Dream Of Dead Fish

Generally, fish are a good sign when seen in dream. But a dead one? That’s a different story. A dead fish in a dream is a warning. Something bad is about to happen and your angel guardian is trying to warn you to become more alert in your life.
