Catfish Dream Meaning and Interpretation

26

Catfish Dream Symbol – Catfish is all about emotions as it swims through the waters of the sea. It can visit your dreams when the situation is not all you wanted, but your ability to adapt and compromise have good outcomes. Or, there could be someone around you not showing you who they really are, hiding their true intentions.

Who in your world could be misleading you? Look at what else is happening in your dream, and consider how you feel when waking for a better idea of what catfish is trying to tell you.

Catfish may also warn of embarrassing situations caused by manipulative people.  You can overcome this through your wisdom and ability to follow your intuition. And, if catfish is lying dead on the ground, it may be telling you to get ready to move. It is time to prepare for new beginnings.

Dreaming of catfish can signify you need to work out what works for you and what does not. There is no point holding on to emotional baggage if it no longer brings joy and fulfillment to your life. Remember to always speak with care as what your say can deeply affect those you speak to.

A Person Who is a Catfish

If you dream about a person who is a catfish it can indicate that you are worried about being deceived by someone around you. Perhaps someone in your presence is not who you think that they are.

When Catfish crosses your path

When Catfish crosses your path it may warn that you need to use adaptability for the best outcomes. Catfish shows you the lesson is about humility and growing emotionally.

    I my dream I saw a sack in water and in the sack was a creature I thought to be snake at first, my wife tried to catch but it jumped to the ground then it was a black catfish. It started moving very fast on the ground trying to hide, on the other hand I was trying to kill it with a metal bar, it took a while but finally I hit it’s head with a metal bar and it died. Then I picked it up got a piece from it and eat it raw…
    What does this mean

  3. I had a dream that I saved three big catfish that’s about to die and put them inside a bowl of water what does it mean

  4. I dreamed a daughter came to me and had huge ugly black catfish on her back, and dropped it down on the floor.
    I looked at it, it was a black, big and long like some kind of scary creature.
    I felt a bit scared, out of balance and uncomfortable because of its big black slimy looks, like it dropped out of oil tank.
    Then i stood up, I decided to fight it, I smashed it 4 times on head with some kind of plate which didn’t break, but it just stood there feeling no pain, not resisting and not fighting back. Just looking at me.
    I was so determined to eliminate it, when it turned into gummy shape and disappeared between clothes in open wardrobe.
    I felt uncomfortable, weak, powerless, I just wanted to deal with it so it could go away.

    I’ve recently experienced divorce, covid lockdown, earthquake, unreasonable family requests, heartbreak, I was ill for part of time… I guess it all summed up.

    Probably catfish is trying to tell me that all the hardship and pain are leaving my life. And that fighting them is not a solution, they will all go away naturally.

    I hope for the best

  5. What dost it mean :i sure my slfe picking fish and catfish in my dram on taking it inside d house i see a pregnant woman which is my friend went to labour which i have to keep d blow of fish on d grant and take her to d hospital pls when does it mean

  6. In my dream, I was fishing when I caught a huge catfish at a lake that was from my childhood home in reality. It was very hard to catch fish at this lake growing up but in my dream I was successful. The fish was huge and covered in mud when I was pulling it out of the water. I was so excited as I picked up the fish from the ground. I decided to go for another. This time the catfish was so big that the pole snapped in two but I was still able too get the fish. My younger brother appeared in the dream to help me with these two huge catfish. Then this lake which was a pretty nice size changed to a fishing hole in the ground, then brother and I began pulling catfish of many different sizes with our hands. At this point in the dream we had about seven huge catfish. I became concerned because the fish started suffocating. One my younger sisters appeared in the dream and I asked her to get the big container I saw but she brought back a bucket. She then disappeared from the dream. My son then appeared in the dream and I told him to get the container. The first time he brought me a bag. I said no! The container! The second time he brought back a styrofoam cool that’s had to be put together so it wouldn’t hold any because of the crack at the connecting points. The fish were dying and I was trying to keep them alive. I then what the **** is wrong with y’all! You don’t see the big black container I’m pointing at?! He brung it back finally and the dream ended with me trying to resuscitate a few fish that where not breathing. This is my dream, and this is how it was.

    I dreamed that a fish crane caught a catfish and dropped it near a pond back in shallow water, I went over and picked up the catfish with pride and showed it to my brother and boyfriend after they said I wouldn’t be able to grab it. Can you help me with the meaning of this?
