Common dream symbols

Being a beautiful mermaid yourself

During sleep, some people may dream that instead of two legs, they discover a fish tail, so that they can dive into the depths of the ocean for a long time without taking a breath. In such a dreamy image you may be reminded of freedom in the first place by the boundless expanse of the sea, but this dream symbol stands for deep grief that is still being processed and that must be overcome. Diving into these ocean depths as a mermaid stands for expressive emotionality or sensitivity of the dreamer, indicating that the person can be easily hurt.

Dreaming about the statue of a mermaid

Have you by any chance heard of or even been to the mermaid statue in Copenhagen? She has truly become a tourist attraction and is admired by many these days. So it could be a processing of experiences in the dream or to whom this monument is not known, the subconscious probably wants to tell that own female aspects have been somewhat stunted lately, no matter whether they are in a woman's or a man's body. Let them rule more their emotional world.

An evil mermaid

A mermaid likes to show herself in our imaginations as a beautiful and graceful being. But what then could an image of a diabolical mermaid want to tell us? A diabolical mermaid who attacks or even pursues you with devious intent. Aggression, irritation or jealousy could be involved, which can conjure up a stormy emotional outburst in the dreamer. A mermaid is usually known only as a pretty, seductive creature. It could not hurt to pay more attention to your own inner life, in order to provide more clarity and order. Then you will surely be able to sleep more peacefully again.

General dream interpretation

A dreamed mermaid symbolizes the delightful and graceful feminine, not only because of her beauty and womanhood, but also because the element water underlines the feminine. This dream image can mean for a man that he longs for seduction and is open to a tingling and crisp love affair, but which could have a rather dramatic conclusion.

If a woman dreams of a mermaid, it suggests that she is already coming to terms with her own femininity, has so far suppressed it fearfully, but is on the path of acceptance. Trust and devotion play an important role in this.

If one hears a singing mermaid, then this dream image indicates positive news.If they are job-related on the sea, such mermaid dreams rather stand for a negative omen.

Psychological dream interpretation

With its enchanting elegance and beauty, and its hybrid nature on fish and human, the mermaid represents fears of the masculine psyche towards feminine sexuality.

In the case of a man, to whom such a dream image appears in his sleep, it probably has to do with insecurity towards the female sex.

Seen differently, the mermaid symbolizes the subconscious. Whoever is delighted by this dream image at night is afraid of the depths of his own soul, is afraid of drowning in his own ocean of feelings or of being swallowed up by the overflowing emotions.

This human fish creature reminds by its ambiguous appearance that there are multi-faceted approaches and also qualities whose potential has not yet been fully exploited.

Spiritual dream interpretation

Since the mermaid is half human and half fish, this suggests to the dreamer that being human requires intuition as well as intellect. The libidinal side of the dreamer should be lived neither too controlled nor dissolute.
