The meaning of Shark in dream | Dream interpretation

This dream denotes an enemy; if the shark eats you, the enemy will ruin you (Gypsy).

The Fabric of Dream | Katherine Taylor Craig

The shark has a universal significance as a deadly predator, so if you dreamed of swimming happily at the beach but then were terrified to see a shark’s fin circling around you, your unconscious may be alerting you to someone who is potentially dangerous in your waking world, perhaps even a loan shark who is offering you money at high interest rates. In their positive aspect, sharks reflect power, instinct, intelligence and the ability to survive. In their negative aspect, sharks typically represent hidden fears that may have an intense impact on you. They are also terrifying symbols of death, destruction and the killer instinct. In many cases, the shark represents the fears you may have about what it may mean to strike out on your own.

If you are sailing over shark-infested waters in your dream, some things in your life may be compromising your individuality, or you may be experiencing conflicts that are pulling and pushing you in opposite directions.

The Element Encyclopedia | Theresa Cheung

Powerful, imminent danger that threatens to take your emotional energy. Usually a caution: do not get in the emotional waters you are considering, or you will experience a substantial energy loss. Threat to your emotional balance. Take responsibility for self and act accordingly.

The Big Dictionary of Dreams | Martha Clarke

To see a shark pursuing and attacking you, denotes that unavoidable reverses will sink you into dispondent foreboding.

To see them sporting in clear water, foretells that while you are basking in the sunshine of women and prosperity, jealousy is secretly, but surely, working you disquiet, and unhappy fortune.

Depth Psychology: A shark is always a warning not to harm others—control this impulse, even if it’s difficult! Being bitten or even devoured by a shark: others are harming you and you let them! Sometimes the shark can also be a symbol of deceit: you are being deceived or you are trying to deceive others. See Predator.

Dreamers Dictionary | Garuda

The shark may also represent these same aspects of your own character. Perhaps you are experiencing a stage in your life of great distress and anguish.

The shark represents harsh emotions such as rage, aggression, and violence. These feelings may harm the mental well-being of yourself and those around you.

A warning to beware of one who gains financially by deception, i.E.

A loan shark

Dream Dictionary Unlimited | Margaret Hamilton

The ultimate predator, this is a very common image in a dream that represents fear and anxiety. As a totem, the power of the shark is phenomenal. Sharks represent our capacity to be single-minded, unstoppable, and driven. And yet, when they appear in a dream, they are often reviled and feared. When the shark appears in your dream, you must ask yourself what you are afraid of. Such a dream may be calling you to step into your personal power in a bigger way. Focus, self-determinism, and being utterly free of distraction are part of the medicine that the shark has to offer. But first you must get out of the way of your own fears in order to accept such power as your own.

Complete Dictionary of Dreams | Dr. Mıchael Lennox

A shark is a symbol of a demonic force or a person with the ability to cause you tremendous harm

Christian Dream Symbols | Tyler Wolfe

Shark offers the medicine or power to confront your greatest fears. It can come as a response to a fearful situation. Once the fear is conquered, the courage and strength of Shark can deliver you to the bottom of the ocean of fear and beyond the limits of what you perceive as safe waters in order to conquer negative emotions. Being attacked by a shark in a dream might signify a confrontation with someone who could take advantage of your naivete.
