For a correct interpretation of the dream, it is important to pay attention to what the shark was doing. Seeing a shark attacking you can mean that somebody is trying to attack you by trying to take something away from you. Seeing the sea full of sharks suggests that you are at the moment involved in a situation in which you should absolutely not trust anyone. Being pursued by a shark in a dream means you have put yourself in danger by disturbing someone a great deal.

A shark symbolizes your enemies, and it is an alert dream. Swimming away from a shark and escaping alive in a dream suggests that you have to try harder to get over an imminent danger in the waking life. Seeing a shark in a dream portends a serious enemy is coming your way. If the shark does not eat you, this means you will be able to get rid of a very difficult situation, maybe even an illness ahead. This dream is a warning to avoid hurting other people.

If a shark attacks you, you might encounter some obstacles on an important path. If the shark bites you or eats you this foretells that other people will hurt you. If you are in clear waters and you see a shark coming your way, this means you will be successful in your social entourage, but there will be envious people that will try to injure you. If the shark in your dream is dead, this portends good profits and possible important reconciliations ahead.
