Cricket (Insect) Dream Meaning and Interpretations


Cricket Dream Symbol – Dreaming of crickets are a sign of good luck. They indicate that all you work for is coming to fruition. Achieving all dreams are possible at this time. You have done the hard work and it is about to pay off. Follow your intuition for guidance on the next steps to take. Your subconscious is awakening new abilities and potential. You have a new passion to try.

Crickets remind to take time for inner reflection to help form solutions to current tough challenges. A cricket jumping around suggests something or someone is annoying you. Reflect on why this is annoying you to resolve your feelings of irritation. Maybe you are being petty. It can also mean there is more chance of success at this time.

Hearing crickets singing is a warning that you let minor things get to you. Your sensitivity and intuition is working in overdrive right now. You are more sensitive than usual. This may be a new phase where you adapt your old habits into the new ways for more immediate success attaining your goals.

When you dream of crickets it can mean this is a time of looking inwards to deal with old fears. Is there something in your life you are in two minds about?  Consider why this is and what holds you back. But, if crickets invade your house it can mean you will experience poverty sometime in the future as crickets eat everything in their path. If you manage to kill them in your dream, then you can work to stop poverty in its tracks.

  1. What does it mean where you dream you have pet crickets five if that means anything and in the dream your friend has one that he wants you to look after whilst there away. Well in the dream I look at this cricket thinking this one looks mean and I place c it into the tank . Sure enough it does not like one of my crickets and I think to myself I need to keep an eye on this one I then turn away for a second then see this “mean cricket” had turned four times bigger and has one of my crickets halfway down it’s throat. My cricket still staring at me like “well do you invite this one over” I woke up screaming.

    Now reading the article I’m not quite sure this was lucky and there was eating but definitely no jumping.

  2. In my dream I found a small bag full of crickets under a moldy sink cabinet, I just knew I had to save them but that was no easy task, anything I tried to do had a big obstacle so I thought “I’ll save one at the time”. Very gently I pick one and tried to feed him but first had to grow the food too. He never let me, he just wanted to jump and be free (which I could relate to and wanted the same thing) but I knew at that moment I had to make him strong before letting go. I was so afraid that I couldn’t catch him (it was really hard not sliping trough my fingers cuz I was worried I’d cruch it). Anyway in the end I couldn’t even open the door to set him free wishing he would survive. In the the back of my mind were all the other crickets too, still in the bag…

    Pardon my English.

    • I had a dream where I was standings looking in the mirror and combing my hair, and while combing there are100s of baby crickets falling from my hair. At first I thought lice, but on close inspection they were transparent baby crickets. Could you please advise on what the meaning of that is.

  3. What does it mean when my room is suddenly invaded by crickets, centipedes, and even more insects i do not know the name too. In my dream, I tried killing a centipede, but it just flopped over and ran away under my bed.

    What does it mean if there are tons of different types of snakes slithering around my house chasing me in a way, and there is also a black scorpion for a few seconds in my dream and there was also rather big black crickets in this web type thing with big legs for a few seconds, but mainly the snakes?!

  5. A green small cricket and praying mantis jumping into bedroom onto me in the day and not jumping away… what is this? And very realistic too

  6. There was a huge cricket in the corner of the room, like a queen cricket or something… then lots of large crickets kept jumping at me. Was rather scary…

    • So I just dreamed about the same cricket for 2 nights in a row. In the first one I was scared and tried to step on it but it jumped and I fell and I woke u. Then last night I was having a sleepover at my house with my bff in the dream and I saw the cricket but it was crumpled up and it went back to normal then it started jumping at me and all over the place. Anything I should pay attention to?

  7. What dors it mean when you dream someone with a few teeth laugh and then out pops a cricket from their mouth?? It looked scarey. I felt more fear than surprise.
