Centipedes have a few characteristics which are very important towards dream interpretation. One of the characteristics that centipedes possess is their long slimy bodies. They are wriggly and can slip in and out of dark areas without being noticed as easily. Also unlike the cockroach these bugs are generally silent and can move around without being heard for a long time. One of the main features of the centipede that makes it so well known though is their hundreds and hundreds of legs. The creatures can have hundreds or even thousands of legs depending on size and type.
Now it is time to take some of those characteristics and apply then to dream interpretation. If you have a dream in which you see a centipede then it might mean that you are about to participate in what some might label a shady business. There is something going on that doesn't seem quite right and you'll need to pay attention to what that is so that you can get a good fix on what's going on. You need to be careful of your surroundings and extra careful of the kind of people that you choose to associate yourself with or you might get caught up in something dubious. Don't be that to yourself.
To dream that you see a centipede could also bode well for you though in one sense, especially if the centipede seems to be getting along well and making it to all of the destinations it is trying to achieve. If that is the case for the centipede then it means that your life will be chugging along at a good and steady fast pace. This does not mean that it will be so fast that you cannot catch up. It actually means that no matter how fast things go around you, you will be able to go just as fast to meet all of the demands and challenges that come along with that responsibility. You are a dynamo and you will never stop no matter how tough the going gets.
On the opposite hand if you dream that the centipede that you see is going slowly or is stumbling all over itself then it means that you too will have that same thing happen in your life. You will be trying to handle so many different chores and sets of things to do at once that you won't be able to keep them all straight. If this sounds like something you'd do or if this idea sounds anything like your personality might be accustomed to, then you might want to start coming up with good ideas for strategy systems now or else things won't go so well once you do start getting things dumped on you.
Even if you've been around a lot of the things, nobody these days actually likes centipedes. Even the small ones can be pretty scary and even when they're not scary, they are still indicative of an unclean area or a wild area which can cause people to become uneasy. Hopefully you don't have a dream about this creature but if you do it might be a sign you need to clean up your home or your life a little bit.
