Chameleon dream meanings


Chameleons can easily blend into their environments, adjusting to most situations and backgrounds they are given. On the other hand, chameleons are easily scared and threatened and can sometimes be hostile and unfriendly.

In your dream you may have…


  • Come across a chameleon.
  • Been transformed into a chameleon.
  • Taken on chameleon characteristics of color-changing.
  • Seen another person take on adaptive color-changing.
  • Seen a chameleon fail to change the appropriate color.
  • Lost a chameleon that blended in too well.
  • Possessed chameleon color-changing abilities but were unable to adapt or blend in to your surroundings.
  • Seen a strange pattern on a chameleon, such as polka-dots or zigzags.

Positive changes are afoot if…

  • The chameleon was able to change and adapt to all scenarios.
  • The chameleon was attracted to and adapted only to desirable conditions and lush green environments.
  • The chameleon you came across accepted you and did not seem fearful.
  • Sometimes, it is a positive sign if your chameleon does not blend in (as this shows that it is not fearful or hostile and that it may be positively rebellious or independent).

Detailed dream interpretation...

A dream about a chameleon shows that you have the ability to change and adapt to strange and uncertain circumstances in your life, especially if the chameleon in your dream is adapting to a healthy green environment. The dream shows that no matter what is thrown at you, you can handle it. You may be anxious about facing an upcoming difficulty or new job opportunity, but you will be able to adapt to your requirements and succeed at this task.

Keep in mind, however, that a dream about chameleons is a link to your devious side and that this is a dream that is sometimes associated with people who are not worried about anything. If you are the type of person who can handle anything, you do not ever worry and are confident at most of the things you try. This may seem like arrogance to some, so be sure to blend sometimes like a chameleon does in order for your confidence not to be perceived this way.

Remember also that chameleons are fearful and hostile, which is why they feel the need to remain unnoticed by blending in with their environments. This sort of dream can mean that you will soon be dealing with a hostile chameleon type of person in your life.

There is also a feeling of being self-sufficient, which may also be perceived as the Chameleon. To observe a Chameleon running in your dream is connected to independence, womanly instincts, innovation, and primacy. Unfortunately this dream is also connected to difficult times and some difficult relationships. The other elements of this dream are that someone may be untrustworthy or disloyal to you. 

A different colored Chameleon (rather than green) signifies that you are currently experiencing difficult times. Chameleons become very scared and anxious when they see the color black. Any pet store owner will tell you not to handle your chameleon when you are wearing the color black. To see a black Chameleon means that you have some hesitation in determining what you actually want out of life.

If the chameleon in your dream exhibits a unique trait, it can be a positive or a negative thing. It might be negative if the chameleon is in a situation where he should have adapted (i.e. he was about to be attacked but did not try to hide himself by changing colors). However, a uniquely colored chameleon who is not threatened can represent an independence that is good and admirable.


This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life…

  • New friendships and social relationships.
  • Job promotions or a new career path.
  • Dealing with hostility or anger in your life.

Feelings that you may have encountered during a dream of a chameleon…

Friendship. Acceptance. Love. Fear. Hostility. Anger. Loyalty. Disloyalty. Trustworthiness. Threatened. Comfortable.
