Yet you have a feeling that things are not all as they seem. You may feel there is something fishy about an offer or suspicious of someone who goes out of their way to support you. This may not be normal.

Dreaming of these sea creatures can bring warnings not to repeat past mistakes that make you look the fool. They may warn it is not wise to trust those who have set you up in the past. It can be about not being naïve. Remember the old saying, “if you always do what you have always done, you always get what you always got”.
