General Meanings:

Male organ and sexuality In the dream the symbol of the eel stands for the male penis and sexual instincts. It may also indicate a kind of spiritualistic action of the emotions, feelings and soul life. It is able to interpret the dream more accurately, but you have to examine closer the state of the water in which the eel resides and also the attitude which you yourself have with this animal.

Sexual needs and elasticity Eel can be a sex (penis) symbol, which indicates, especially for women, sexual needs and frustrations. Dreaming of an eel means that she is obviously sexually stimulated in a positive or negative way. The avoidance of an eel indicates fear of sexual intercourse. Moreover, it can also stand for suppleness and fast. (From the view of some psychoanalysts, the eel’s elongated form reminds male genital organ. This has sexual character especially in women’s dreams) The eel includes difficulties, but they can be overcome, if you are unremitting.

Psychological Meanings:

More then snake or fish, the eel points to a slippery temptation, on the intrigues which threaten us. It is caught or is pulled ashore, difficulties can be overcome. It escapes or it slips out of our hands, then creates difficult problems at our work, or the money slips through our finger. The quality of the water is the ultimate mark for the meaning of the dream.

  • Clear, flowing water and the view is nice – the spirit of your life could change. Now more (mental) agility could change your life positively, clear ideas and their implementation is now very important.
  • Muddy, murky water means that you want to be “slick” and move easily through unexplained threatening situations. If fear or disgust of eel was the prevailing mood in the dream, you should check your current attitude to sexuality (this could be your partner). Perhaps you feel disgust for your partner and you don’t like when he touches you.

  1. I was sitting on the edge of a big pool with my feet in the water. The water was crowded with moray eels in all colours, but i never felt uncomfortable. Especially one moray, a yellow one with black stripes, knew me very well and i was petting it all the time. It swam around my legs like a cat will rub around tour legs when it wants so pet. If i moved to another spot it would follow me, and i could even carry it in my hands. Somebody saw how tame it was and wanted to hold it too, but the moray didnt let them. Please, what could this dream mean..

  2. saw a jaguar car come down a hill very fast, i was walking across a road with my wife, a man jumped out of car with a hand full of love letters and begun to run after my wife. i begun to pursue him, up a hill, i stoped at a pine tree long grass about it and thrust my hand through the long grass into the roots of the tree pulling out a short thick black eel, i threw it down a valley without looking, then looked up and saw it land in a small pond a man and woman had built high in the hills , the pond had three other similar eels in it, then i heard crying and looked across to a small knoll and there sat my wife weeping.

  3. I had a very powerfull dream last night. I was in a cave with others peopel I think and I was the only one who could stop an enormous long blue/grey Eel. We were suddenly out of the cave and the Eel which looked dead came towards us very slowly out of the bushes. When next looked it had been stop by a served cows head which my 3 year old daughter was holding on to while she sat on the floor. The servered cows head was from a documentary on Damien Hirst I’d watched the night before. but the rest I have no idea about.

  4. I was laying in calm water, as if I were relaxed and enjoying the rhythm of the ocean. The water was clear, so clear that I could see all that was going on. The water was not deep, but just enough to cover my body and enough to allow my head to be above the water. As I layed there in the water, there were two weld swimming about in the water. After some time, the weld began to swim around my body, touching my body gently. The two lightly colored weld swan outlining my body as if it were attracted to my warmth. I was not afraid, yet I enjoyed the gentleness of the eels. At moments I knew I had to move, to get away from the eels, but didn’t know when without the eel feeling threatened by my movement. I continued to lay there and enjoyed the eels presence around me

  5. I dreamt that an eel was attacking me and a friend, it was out of the water and just glided through the air. It then proceeded to drive my friends car. I know this sounds stupid but it is such an odd dream it plays on my mind. If anyone knows what this could mean let me know thank you

  8. So I just had a dream last night where I went to this river I had gone to when I was a child. Except it had a staircase leading to the waters edge. I looked down and saw these huge green and brown saltwater eels because their faces seemed scary to me. All of the sudden one pops up straight in the air like a snake and I start to run. It strikes at me and misses and keeps trying to bite me. I eventually grab it’s head and start wrestling with it because it was moving fast and I thought for sure it was going to bite me. I think it got close but I woke up. I woke up pretty freaked out because of how detailed and vivid this dream seemed, I even started googling all about eels before the idea of my dream having a meaning to cameup. If you can help me sort this out besides what’s in the article above I know I’d appreciate it. Thanks

  9. i dreamed about a giant eel thing. at least i think it was an eel first i tough it was a whale.
    it was on the sizes of me. it came out of the water and
    and it kind of stalked me and looked at me and cheeped around me.
    and then went back into the water. i think it has something to do with my twin flame. she does not talk to me but i am trying to talk to her.
    i saw her on the bus the day after i dreamed about it. but i didn’t realize it
    was her till afterwards.

  10. Me and some other people were sitting around a table when all of a sudden a girl asks whose leg is touching hers. Everyone looks under the table and we see a red large bucket filled with water and 3 eels. They’re alive and moving.
    All of a sudden I’m in an empty room with a dark hole in the ground where water flows. It’s creepy and I remember I was afraid of it. In front of me stands the bucket with eels and one managed to escape. After that I, and some random dude, run out of the room/situation and close the door.
    Later in that same dream we talked about locking up every single door and window of that room because we are afraid of what might come out of that dark pipe hole..

    What does this mean anyway I can’t figure it out.

  11. I had this weird dream, I was at a pool with 3 of my friends, I had no idea who they were, but in my dream they were my best friends… It was cold outside and we didn’t want to get in, but we had to. I forgot something in the house so I ran around the pool to go back in the house to get it, on the way I slipped in fell in the pool, the water was really warm so I just decided to swim to the other side of the pool toward the house. I was in the shallow end and then all three of my friends started screaming at me to get out of the pool because there was an eel. When I looked down, there was a bright green eel sitting on the bottom of the pool, it was like I was aware that I was dreaming for that moment because I thought to myself “Oh it’s just a dream, it’s not gonna move towards me.”
    Well it started swimming up towards me so I kind of freaked out and started climbing out of the pool, when it touched my foot, this man appeared behind me from under the water and wrapped his arms around my face and pulled me under water. I was in the shallow end, so I tried to find the bottom, I could see it, but it was like it was just an illusion because my foot couldn’t touch it. When I was starting to black out because I couldn’t breathe, the eel wrapped around my right leg and electrocuted me. After that, I woke up. This dream has been bugging me for a while… I don’t know what the eel represents and being electrocuted by it, nor the man that constricted me and was drowning me… Feed back would be much appreciated.
