Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

Mussels are a shellfish that can be found in the sea and on the menu of your local seafood restaurant.

Having a dream of mussels is usually a very good omen! In a dream state, mussels are a symbol of strength, peace, fertility and profitable times ahead. But be careful to mull over your dream carefully, as the mussel can always be a sign of loss, betrayal and heartache. The context of the mussel and how the dream made you feel is what you will want to pay most attention to.

In this dream you may have

  • Eaten a mussel.
  • Found a mussel.
  • Been given a mussel.
  • Seen a mussel.
  • Owned a mussel.
  • Ordered a mussel in a restaurant.
  • Gave a mussel to someone.
  • Held a mussel.
  • Opened a mussel.

Positive changes are afoot if

  • You opened a mussel and the fish inside was whole.
  • You were given a mussel by your significant other and it was whole inside or contained a pearl.
  • A person that previously had done wrong to you bought or gave you mussels.
  • You saw a mussel in its natural habitat.
  • You ate a mussel.

Detailed dream meaning

Since a mussel can be indicative of many things, you will really want to be sure that you remember the dream clearly. If in the dream you were eating the mussel, you are entering a time of joy and prosperity. If you were eating the mussel in the presence of your partner, it can be a sign of fertility. If you are enjoying eating the mussels with friends or other loved ones this is a sign of joy and happiness. It could also mean that someone close to you is being stubborn or willful about a situation that is of a concern to you.

In your dream you may have found a whole mussel or seen a whole mussel. In this case the mussel is symbolic of happy or peaceful times. If someone gave you a whole mussel this happiness and peacefulness will be in some way associated with the person that gifted it to you. If this person gave it to you as a gift or took you at to eat mussels, it means that they value you and enjoy having you in their life. This person holds you in very high regards and will do anything they can to make you feel happy, secure and loved.

Not every situation is a happy one though. If in the dream you found an empty shell of a mussel, it may mean that you will lose an object that is very important to you. If you open a mussel and find that it is empty inside, it means that you will experience a loss, or that you recently experienced a loss in your life. If you are out to eat mussels with a group of people and one of the mussels on your plate is empty, it may be a sign that someone amongst you is gossipy or has betrayed you or will hurt or betray you in the future.

When swimming in the ocean, mussels are commonly found around a pier. Piers in the ocean have their own meaning and it is also a good idea to consider other prevalent structures in your dream to have a deeper meaning of your dream. Combine things that you see to get to the root of the meaning.

Mussels can also cause harm. Surfers, boogie borders, and daring souls that pier jump are sometimes cut by the shell of the mussel. Having pain in a dream, especially if there is blood, is a sign of needing to heal. Because there is likely to be much water in this dream, often dreams of being cut by the shell of a mussel indicates a need for emotional healing.

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

  • A joyous and happy time in your life.
  • Upcoming success and prosperity.
  • Emotional healing being needed.
  • Aspects of how you feel – as there is much water in the dream.
