They could also symbolize the nourishment of body and soul, and navigation through the unknown depths of ourselves. Generally, fish in a bowl or aquarium suggest constricting emotional conditions in which aspects of your personality are prevented from expressing themselves. They may also refer to aspects of yourself that need to be nourished emotionally. To dream of a goldfish bowl may simply suggest boredom, or a lack of privacy or confidentiality.

If you came across an oyster in your dream, was the shell open or closed? If the oyster shell was shut, it may be hinting that your unconscious contains a pearl of wisdom. Oysters are also traditionally thought to be aphrodisiacs, so is it time to reinvigorate your love life? If the oyster shell was empty, could your unconscious have been indicating events that have passed you by, or do you think the world is no longer your oyster? If a mussel features in your dream, this may suggest that you are afraid to reveal your soft, pulpy and vulnerable interior and are in a state of hiding. Another interpretation is that you are worried about your state of dependence, having attached yourself to someone or something because you believe that you cannot make it on your own. Consider also the homonym for mussel. Should a clam or clams appear in your dream are you closing up, withdrawing, withholding, avoiding, being reticent or clamming up in some way in waking life? Perhaps you are keeping a secret. Alternatively, it could be that something in your life feels sticky or uncomfortably close, as in clammy. On the other hand it may also imply happiness, euphoria, and that you are as happy as a clam.
If a freshwater or land-based snail featured in your dream, do you wish to creep into your shell or, as snails move slowly, is a project taking longer than you thought in waking life? Other interpretations for snail include: lacking in vitality or enthusiasm, needing to slow down or speed up, being ready to protect or defend yourself, and feeling at home wherever you go.
If slugs feature in your dream, this can suggest any of the following: that you are lacking in energy or vitality, functioning below par, being unenthusiastic or making slow but steady progress. They could also suggest a devious, unmannered or deceitful person, a slug or slime ball, that you are feeling vulnerable, or that you or someone else is being spineless and is acting in a cowardly manner.
Octopuses have numerous tentacles that operate independently, so could your unconscious have been commenting on your multitasking ability? As a sea creature, the octopus carries the energy of emotion and the many ways to hold or connect. In their positive form, these creatures reflect emotional depth and the ability to direct your energy in many directions without losing your center. A dream octopus may therefore suggest successful business deals or any other project involving much multitasking. It may also be associated with a person or situation that has many ways of holding or affecting you, such as a mother or a debt.

Dreams that feature creatures of the sea are therefore indicators of deep-rooted instincts, fears and anxieties that have not been fully uncovered in waking life. Jungians think that fish symbolize a spiritual quest or seeking, whilst other dream interpreters claim that fish symbolize abundance and fertility. Fish are sometimes also recognized as a symbol for Christ and Christianity. Given all these possible interpretations, it is worth focusing on the condition and appearance of the fish and other sea life in your dreams so that you can discover the personal meaning they hold for you.

As with all dream interpretations, when it comes to underwater dreams that feature fish, reptiles and amphibians, it is also important to consider whether your unconscious is using word-play to get its message across.
