Detailed dream meaning

Lizards in dreams are often reptiles. Because reptiles can live in water and on land they are often referred to in dream interpretations as icons of people in your life that you cannot trust. To see a reptile in motion in a dream that is out in the open or to be scared by a reptile is a sign that you need to be on your guard. Reptiles in the forest are said to be signs that you need to watch out for someone trying to take your money, whereas reptiles in the water are a sign to be careful with your emotions.

Many people are afraid of reptiles and when you fear them in a dream this is an indication that you need to be mindful of your own emotions in the waking world. When a woman dreams of being afraid of them in her dream, it can be an indication that she is not trusting of her partner sexually – for men on the other hand it is an indication that he fears his partner is lying to him. In either case you may want to consider whether or not your fears are even valid in your waking world. Usually lizards are not even a threat but we are naturally unsure and scared of them even though they mean no harm. Seeing them in a dream can be an indication that your own fears or mistrust is not valid and you want to pay closer attention to the facts rather than letting your emotions get the better of you.

Seeing many reptiles in your dreams – especially those that are lounging in the sun or that are of no threat to you is a sign that you are keeping people at arm’s length. When you are doing this you are likely missing out on opportunities. Consider ways to better your odds to create opportunity in your life rather than being lazy and not acting. Now is a time to rush into motion in your life rather than letting it pass you by.

When a lizard is a true threat to you in a dream, then this is a warning to be more caution about those around you. When you react in a dream against a threatening reptile, this is a good sign that you are prepared to act, but telling you that you need to act now in your waking life. This is a time to call people on their bull and to demand answers for unknown questions. You are likely to find that: your acting now will result in a win for you in some way.

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

  • Trusting people or having trust issues.
  • Calling someone’s bluff.
  • Protecting your heart or finances.
  • Being deceived.
