Crab Dream Symbol – Crab visits from the watery depths of the sea. It symbolizes water bringing peace and tranquility to your life and is symbolically linked to and ruled by the moon. When crab scuttles across your dreams, you are either about to reap the rewards of your successful hard work or you hold on to old emotions that do not belong anymore.
Have you moved forward using tenacious perseverance? Or, are you clutching tight to the emotions that eat at you continuously rather than letting them go?
Crab does not go forwards directly when moving across the sand. They scuttle in a crisscross, sideways pattern to its home in the sea. This can indicate you are misguided in your thoughts or actions, or someone around you is intentionally misleading you. It can also indicate that some situations and people around you do not really have the same interests as you, though they may say they do.
Crabs carry their homes with them wherever they go, so crab could remind about settling down. Being bitten or attacked by a crab with it refusing to let go can symbolize your need to let go of something. Is there a problem you are avoiding or refusing to acknowledge?

When Crab crosses your path
