Fish are known for representing prosperity according to many old legends and folklore. When the sea was plentiful with fish it meant that people would be experiencing prosperous crops and plentiful progress. This means though that if you are dreaming of a dying fish or a dead fish, that you are experiencing a lot of issues with progress and prosperity. This dream could have come because you were in some sort of slump or it could come as an indication that if you don’t stop some sort of behavior that you are doing, then you soon will start to experience a slump. This slump could of course literally mean that you will have trouble providing for yourself or your family just like the old school meaning of fish applies to. Of course with the modern issues we all experience it could also mean that you are going to fall into an emotional slump. It could just mean that you are starting to fall deeper into depression or that you are going through a lot of issues in your life that you have to sort through soon or risk having some more serious problems. Has something depressing happened to you lately? Perhaps there has been a history of serious depression going on in your life up to this point and you need some time to sort through that on your own. This is something that the dead fish could indicate. Interestingly enough fish can sometimes represent dreams and aspirations or things of a carefree nature, so to dream of a dead fish may just mean that you feel like your dreams are dead or you have lost something of serious importance to yourself.
If you have a dream of a dying fish, this relates to all of the areas already mentioned, but it is more of a strong prophecy and it gives you a little bit more time to take care of the problems that you see plaguing your life. If the fish is dying it is a bad sign sure, but it isn’t dead yet so you still have time to save it. If you have been neglectful or if you have been participating in an activity which you know is detrimental to your success and business dealings then this means that you really need to step up to the plate and take some responsibility for your actions. Make sure that you don’t get yourself in any more trouble than necessary and try to dig yourself out of the rut that you have put yourself in whenever possible. You can only go on like this for so long before it becomes a serious issue.
