If you have been pondering over what doe sit mean when you dream about fish then you have come across just the place to find answers to your questions.

I have received many emails from people asking to interpret the phenomenon of dreaming of fish. Therefore, this article will reveal the meaning of such dreams.

A fish basically symbolizes feelings, creativity, rebirth, good luck, transformation, health, abundance, serenity, intelligence, happiness, strength, and endurance.

It connects you with the water element, it represents the deeper awareness of the unconsciousness or higher self.

Here are some Bible verses about fish.

The birds of the heavens and the fish of the sea,
Whatever passes through the paths of the seas.
– Psalm 8:8

Now suppose one of you fathers is asked by his son for a fish; he will not give him a snake instead of a fish, will he? – Luke 11:11

General Interpretations About Having A Dream About Fish

Here are some interpretations behind dreaming of fish.

1) Your fortune is going to turn good in terms of money

As mentioned earlier, dreaming about fish is thought to be a good sign. It is symbolic of wealth.

An example in the bible related to this written by Matthew 17:24-27 is – When Jesus and Peter arrive, they are asked to pay the temple tax. Not wanting to offend the debt collectors by refusing to pay, Jesus sends Peter to go fishing. 

Jesus says “go to the lake and throw out your line. Take the first fish you catch; open its mouth and you will find a four drachma coin. Take it and give it to them for my tax and yours.”

It simply shows how a fish miraculously spilled out money so that they can pay their bills.

So the next time you spot a fish in your dream, just relax and thank God for showing you the light to relief, stop stressing, and only focus on executing your daily work with devotion.

The money can come in any form,  maybe through a lucky draw or an online contest.

Just be on the lookout for such opportunities. Have faith in what God decides for you, it will always be in your favor, not against.

2) You should learn to forgive in order to move on

If you dreamt of a fish lately, it can indicate that you need to let go of the grudges you hold deep within.

You must tale an initiative to forgive the person in your life that recently caused you pain.

Though you maybe reluctant to the thought  of forgiving someone who broke your trust, but the fish you saw in your dream signifies that you must learn to move ahead in life with a smile.

Don’t hide your own feelings from yourself, not forgiving the person will keep you trapped in the past and will cause trouble to you in the long run.

Maybe the person didn’t mean any harm intentionally and really meant his/her apology? You would only be hurting you and your friend.

Here are 2 eye-opening examples extracted from the Bible about forgiving.

Colossians 3:13

Bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.        

Matthew 6:12

From the Lord’s Prayer – “And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.”           

If God can forgive your myriad mistakes, then you sure can forgive a few mistakes of the people who caused you pain, for the betterment of both.

3) Change and transformation is on your way

Fish are often a symbol of change and transformation in our lives.

Water is a powerful symbol that can reflect many things, such as emotions, change, abundance, and transformation.

Since fish are natural inhabitants of water, they are frequently associated with many of the same symbolic meanings.

So be ready to the upcoming challenges with a smile.

Don’t shy away from hurdles, rather learn from your hardships and grow wiser.
