Toad Dream Meaning and Interpretations


Toad Dream Symbol – The toad has been a symbol of evil, hidden secrets, and various other things since the beginning of the human race. It is no wonder. Toads and frogs are capable of some amazing feats and they are mysterious at the best of times.

If you dream about a toad it means that you are about to either come into contact with a very lethal poison, metaphorically speaking, or there is a frog prince that is just yearning to kiss you and prove himself a good and decent person that will love you despite all your faults. Toads are very important symbols, but like so many dreams, the interpretation is up to the dreamers themselves.

Additional Toad Dream Meanings

toad-dreamsToads usually visit men in their dreams. Dreaming of toads often represents the side of you that is difficult to express. It is a reminder that you need to grow. Put some work into the things you have trouble expressing. It could be that new skills need more practice to perfect them. It is a time of learning and self-development.

Dreaming of toads is a reminder of your ability to transform yourself and your life. Accept new opportunities to expand your horizons. While you may try to hide the truth about yourself, it does you no favors. Let the true you shine for the world to see. If tough things happen, treat them as lessons and keep moving. Do not fear others’ criticisms for they may hide their hidden agendas.

Killing a toad is a warning that others gossip about you and your life decisions. They may be right in some instances. It is a warning to take better care when making tough decisions. Others are watching and waiting for you to slip up.

A toad jumping in a dream is a sign there is unfinished business that needs urgent attention. Have you been moving on to new things while leaving other things incomplete? This will not make your life easy. Touching a toad means there is soon good news about something you have long waited on. This will help you finish a project you are working on.

Dreaming of a toad’s transformation from a tadpole through to adult symbolizes your own potential transformation. There are new beginnings on the way. While you may have fears of failure, if you come from a place of love and integrity, you can achieve success and prosperity. Persevere. Work through any fears.

  1. Hi,I had a dream of myself being in clear water with toads and other things with my best friend and another person who is not very dear to me.Since I’m very scared of toads,I quickly got out of the water but the other 2 were still in there.The water was below knee-length.
    Please advise what my dream meant.

  2. Donna Roberts on

    My 13 year old had a dream that he and his puppy came in contact with a cane toad. The toad it sprayed poison on them both and then my son told his father to help the puppy as he was dying. What does this mean please? He is very concerned. Any help would be appreciated.

  3. I dreamed that I dropped something small and when I reached down to grab it I saw a huge orange and white 2-headed toad. I was kinda grossed out and then it squirmed away.

  4. I had a dream with toads and one fish inside, this toads and fish had jumped into my trouser, i start shocking they now start jumping out again

  5. I just had a dream with a big red toad in it. It was sort of laying down looking at me until I made eye contact with it and it started approaching me not really hoping.
    I have a fear of frogs so I tried to get away from it to stay asleep but that didn’t work. Lol.

  6. My boyfriend dreamed that he was driving over piles of toads, frogs, and all kinds of different snakes. I’m pretty sure it has to do with him going out of town to work for 2-3 months in about a week and subconsciously he is very worried about it and its manifesting in his dreams. Could there be any other underlying issue or something else that I haven’t picked up on? He refers to this dream as a nightmare and has had a few different nightmares since last week.

    • I’ve had a recurring dream in these last couple nights of a huge toad that is following me throughout my home and was closer each time I stopped to look, until last night I eached my hand out towards it and it leaped into my hand while I stayed to pet it, then I set it back down on the floor and then I woke up.

  7. Had a dream where I climbed down this pole and down into this empty house with no door in front. There wasn’t anything behind me but in front, was a snake creeping up towards this massive toad both facing me. Around them was full of green leaves, vines, trees and bushes. The whole place looked like a fortress or some sort of place for animals. I walked beside them disgusted and scared, and there was another open entry with no door. Wrapped with leaves and vines. It was in shape of a door but with no door. I walked through it and saw the fat toad turn around and being eaten or swallowed by the snake. I could see the form of the toad’s shape in the body of the snake and it slowly followed me as I kept stepping back. When I look up, there isn’t a pole and all you can see is the sky. I stepped faster away and saw a house in my view similar to the open-house I was in with nothing inside. But two people were there and I ran to them and told them my problem. I think this is where I woke up.

  8. Last night I dreamt two bullfrogs crawled out from under my blankets on to the wall behind me & sat there… one big & fat & the other a little smaller….
    They were’nt thteatening in any way.
    Later on that same evening… I dreamt someone told me there’s something on my head & this person then proceeded to take whatever it was off.
    Well… my hair’s pitch black
    & it ended up being two black spiders.
    Looked like widow spiders… one way bigger than the other & the big one had a hugh pearly green button… looked almost like an emerald.
    Once again… they did not come across as hostile.
    What interested me is that I almost never dream of animals, reptiles or insects of any kind…
    which I did in this case & both of them came in pairs… one big & the other small.
    Also at no stage of the dream did I feel scared nor threatened.

    Has anyone got any suggestions about what it might mean ?

    Appreciate your thoughts

    In love and light

  9. I dream that many relatives came to visit me when I was ready to have supper with my husband. I had full house. Some of them brought me different kinds of bread. I was stressed because I wasn’t prepared and had nothing to offered to them. Checked the fridge and found a green salsa and I thought to fill some crabs with it but when I injected it the crab was a green toad and he was alive. It jumped to the floor and defecated. That’s when I noticed it was a toad. I saw myself sitting on the flour and asked one of my cousins to help me to stand up. He was weak and couldn’t help me. My older son did but he lost the balance and he fell. Then I noticed that he smashed the toad with his knee.
