Dreaming of Fish Pregnancy Spiritual Meaning

Fish And Pregnancy - Are they Connected?

My grandmother always said that dreaming of fish means someone is pregnant in the family. Well, I actually had this happen. When I was pregnant with my daughter a few family members had a dream of fish. This followed with a lot of “fish” type dreams. 

Spiritually this dream is connected to giving birth. To dream of fish swimming in water (maybe a tank or in the ocean) represents the insight of your unconscious mind, especially if you dreamed of seeing one swimming in the ocean. To catch a fish in your dream and suggests that over the next few weeks your awareness will increase --- and you will gain insight into your own future. Allegedly, many females claim that when they dream about fish, someone gets pregnant in their family - which is why you are probably reading this. So, this leaves us questioning if dreaming of fish can mean having a baby in waking life, and it may.

What is the spiritual meaning of dreaming of fish and pregnancy?

Many dream books claim that to dream of fish during pregnancy foretells giving birth of a beautiful baby girl. If you’re pregnant and dream about blackfish, it represents the birth of a strong baby boy. If you dream of fishing while being pregnant it signifies a smooth and easy delivery to a healthy baby. If you see carp in your dream state while being pregnant, it means you’re going to give birth to an intelligent, and talented child, most possibly a daughter. If you catch a fish in your dream while being pregnant in waking life symbolizes giving birth to a boy who’s going to accomplish great success in life. As you find yourself dreaming of fish during pregnancy is mostly associated with positive signs and has a positive meaning and interpretation, and means that (according to folklore) a baby is on it’s way.

Fish is one of the most common symbols in dreams. It has both positive and negative interpretations. However, most of the associations of dreaming fish are positive. But what does it mean if you feel uncomfortable while dreaming about fish? For example, you see a fish out of the water and it makes you feel unpleasant and you suddenly feel the urge to help the fish get back in the water in order to survive. You feel pressure to help the fish on time. Or you don’t because you don’t care. Either way, such a dream in terms of pregnancy foretells unpleasant situations and troubles appearing in your waking life very soon. Your dream might foretell disappointment, especially if you notice muddy or dirty water in your dream. If the fish was dead, it’s a sign that you need to pick yourself up in life. A dead fish in dreams regarding pregancy indicates problems and illness in the future. And seeing the fish swimming means things are going to be settled for a while. 

What does dreaming of fish in muddy water represent?

If you see fish swimming in the water in your dream, it represents a few different things, depending on the clearness of the water. I know I have associated this article on the spiritual meaning of fish and having a baby, but the details of the dream is very important.

If you saw the fish swimming in clear water, it’s a good sign. Such a dream represents success and financial gains, especially if you are a businessman or lead your own local business. You will find the following period extremely lucky. Now, yes, the dream could represent having a baby but as well it can mean (if you don't want a baby) you might get a promotion that will take your career to the next level.

However, many have dreams about fish swimming in muddy water and wonder about the significance of this dream. What does it mean? Well. It’s not a good sign. Such a dream usually represents complex problems with people that may appear in your life. 

What’s the prophetic meaning of fish in dreams?

As I have mentioned before, dreaming of fish foretells pregnancy.

But is that the only thing that fish in dreams can predict? According to my older dream books, this goes a bit deeper, it isn’t just dreaming of fish. To see fish eggs in your dream foretells a new beginning and expressing your potential. A black fish can suggest a risk you’ve been afraid to take for so long and face your biggest fears. Alternatively, to see fish eggs in your dream also denotes that twins may be on the cards. Besides this, fish are often interpreted as a symbol of personal development, growth, and fertility. To see a fish in your dream state might also represent conception. There have been many accounts that most women dream of fish swimming in the water when they are about to conceive a baby.

On a more generalized note, to eat a fish in your dream symbolizes luck, nourishment, spirituality, beliefs, energy, and “feeding” your soul. If you cook fish in your dream, it reveals your hard-working nature and the plans you’ve been working on recently. You’re putting your heart and soul into something you want to be done as quickly as possible. If you’re cleaning a fish, it denotes your shame in expressing feelings for other people. You’re trying to become a socially active person but you’re a born introvert, so it’s probably going hard for you.

If you’re being attacked by a fish in your dream, you’re probably feeling overwhelmed by emotions in your waking life. If the fish is big, you will experience significant things that will change your perspective and “attack” your current belief system. But if you were attacked by a small fish, you won’t suffer major changes but small ones. To dream of the fish’s bones reveals your old views, thoughts, and insights. You’re becoming a much-aware person. You’re very happy to be able to open your mind to new opinions.

Is there anything else about this dream you should know?

You probably use the term “fishy” about certain situations you don’t like in waking life. So, dreaming about fish when you know you won’t be pregnant might also indicate a warning about possible danger and some “fishy” suspicious situation you should avoid. Alternatively, you might be “fishing” for attention, recognition, and compliments if you see a fish in your dream state.
