Fleas Dream Meaning and Interpretations


Fleas Dream Symbol – If you dream of fleas, this is an indication of small vices or flaws which are beginning to show their ill effects in your life. These small, pernicious influences may only manifest themselves at first as minor discomforts and annoyances, but the flea dream is a warning that they will multiply and increase in severity.

This dream can also signify hidden malice in those around you, which has the power to ruin your life, or at least make it very uncomfortable, little by little. If in this dream you eradicate your flea infestation, this is an indication that you can triumph over these struggles.

Flea Dream Interpretations

flea-dreamsDreaming of fleas indicates your current feeling of irritation about something or someone. Fleas are bloodsucking critters so it may be that someone around you sucks the life out of you. It may be that you are unable to see this, though they irritate you.

Being bitten by fleas indicates someone is trying to make you angry They are deliberately trying to provoke you for a reaction. They enjoy spreading their poison about you to whoever will answer. Who could this be? Be wary not just of newcomers, but of those who have long been trusted to be in your life. Someone is plotting to destroy you. Spreading nasty gossip behind your back not caring whether you hear it.

You are the subject of their jealousy. Finding fleas in your hair reminds you that you are the only person to blame for your problems. You need to stop trying to blame others. Take responsibility for your own actions. You are the only one with responsibility for your life.

Dreaming of fleas can also mean there are prosperity and wealth on its way. The days of worrying about money will disappear to be replaced with abundant times where the money is no object. This is not a gift or a windfall. You must continue to work hard. Maybe even take some risks. Continue setting goals for continued success.

Although challenges will worry you, being well-prepared for these concerns can help prevent them from coming up in the first place. Prioritize your goals and keep yourself on track. Trying to catch fleas indicates you can find common ground with others when there are problems. You may realize that it always takes two to create a problem and come to a compromise.

Catching fleas signifies that good luck is coming your way. You will soon get a chance to highlight your plans. A new opportunity will come up. Be alert. For you do not want to miss it. Killing fleas means there will be an unexpected financial gain in the near future. This could be through an inheritance, a winning, or you may even find money lying in the street.

  1. I had a dream of my husky dog which I love the most, he had two tiny fleas on his snout area and that I took them off with my hand, it was very easy. My mum was standing next to me with a flash light pointing at the area of where the fleas where on my dog.
    Overall feeling, satisfaction and release I guess.
    What could this dream mean?
    Thanks xx

  2. I had a dream that i was washing a cat or dog and when i poured water on the animal big black fleas appeared. they were engorged and so huge. along with the big ones there was also little ones. i killed the little ones but didnt kill the big ones. i didnt want to touch the big ones because they were too gross and i couldn’t even bring myself to touch them.

      Hi my name is Dee i dreamt fleas on my hand and my youngest sister was trying to catch it..also i dreamt a lot of rats running around i was not afraid there were like gray looking one was caught and there was a gray stripe color cat watching the rat that was caught but the other rats was running to hide.

    • I’m CM
      I have many visions. In this one it was difficult to interpret. First, I had many chickens in my house that I gathered and then many tiny fleas biting my bare feet which I took off one by one killing them.

  3. I dreamed that I was in a bathtub washing flees off of me. But I tried to save them from drowning because I felt bad for them. None of them survived. However, two of them that I tried saving suddenly turned to tics, so I put them back and let them die. Overall, I don’t remember feeling any emotion, except feeling bad about the fleas dying. And then startled when they turned to tics. I guess this symbolizes my empathy and the danger of being empathetic toward the wrong people. ‍♀️

    • Or it could also mean if I hold on to my problems (assuming fleas are a problem/annoyance), they will just get worse.

  4. In my dream, I notice there was a wart like skin on my neck. There were 3 of them. I wanted to get rid of so I pulled out one of them, and placed it somewhere. I was observing it and saw it was a small dog flea crawling and will suddenly get bigger as it look like it already suck blood. I did the same to other two. I was thinking where I got it and remembered that I was lying on a grass… then I saw the grass full of same fleas. I became worried it might have entered my ears.. I was also thinking someone intentionally placed those fleas on me.

  9. I dreamed of catching a flea, explaining to someone what it was before I killed it. At first I thought the dream was telling me to give our dog a bath- except I woke up to a phone call confirming a job offer 🙂 I’ll give him a good bath anyway lol
