Dreams Related To Crab

Eating crab meat

I was with a friend and they serve as food with crab as the meat. And I chewed the crab. Please what does that mean? Thanks.

Dreams which involve eating crab meat are usually good indicators of your inability or reluctance to listen to what other people around you are saying. You could be caught up in a cycle of trying to look knowledgeable and savvy in other people's eyes while making sure you prevail. However, these one-sided views and opinions could hurt your relationships with other people in the long run.

A crab in general

The image of a crab by itself or unaccompanied by other specific details may reflect some of the troubles or difficulties you are facing in reality. Successfully overcoming the problems plaguing you would require more time, effort and energy than it probably should, and you would need to rely heavily on past experience and logic as well. If you are in love or are in a relationship when you see this image in your dream, it is possible you would go through a rough patch, which would require you to carefully listen to your partner and learn more about them in order to avoid or get through some small conflicts.

Crabs are also thought to represent a personal tendency toward doing things your way. In most cases, this stubborn quality and inability to rely on others may mean you also tend to put off certain tasks or responsibilities until the last minute, especially when you lack the skills, experience or confidence to complete it. While this is usually associated with the dreamer, this same image can predict meeting or interacting with someone or a group of people with these same tendencies.

Catching a crab

Catching a crab, whether it was with your hands or some type of trap, represents an upcoming situation where you would become privy to some important news or information that, if utilized quickly and in an effective manner, could drastically alter your current course in life. What you learn could become the foundation to some path or project that would lead you in a different, more interesting or more fulfilling direction that you ever expected. On the other hand, this same image has been associated with dreamers who are less outspoken or shy. In some cases, this symbol suggests that their introverted nature may prevent them from establishing good connections with those who could positively influence their life or may negatively affect their ability to communicate ideas clearly and persuasively.

Seeing a crab

The image of a crab crawling around in its natural habitat or a small cage is usually thought to be a fairly positive symbol representative of your current lifestyle. At present, you probably are not experiencing any drama or conflicts in reality, leading to a peaceful and satisfying daily existence. Another slightly more neutral interpretation suggests you go through life without solid plans or a detailed to-do list, meaning you are not worried about what could happen tomorrow or in the future.

Son and grandmother in a crab tank

I am a female. I dreamt my family and I were looking for my 22 year old son. We found him with my grandmother who is now deceased in an apartment. When we saw them, it was like we were all in a hermit crab tank. My grandmother went to sleep under the sand and my son went inside a hermit shell. I saw a puff of smoke and woke up. Fyi: my 10 year old daughter does have hermit crabs, which I mostly care for. Please help me figure this out. Thank you.

The hermit crab fish tank that you found yourself in during this vision has two meanings based on your situation. First, it represents some aspect of your home or household, as you admitted that you own hermit crabs in wake life. Furthermore, being in a fish tank also refers to feeling a lack of control in wake life. It is possible that you have too much on your plate or that certain troubles are putting pressure on your family life. Finding your son with your deceased grandmother should be considered an assuring symbol. Her presence means that not all hope is lost. In fact, you may soon find shelter in both the literal and figurative sense, as the shell your son crawled inside could mean that your situation would improve, bringing you peace of mind and a welcome reprieve from worry.

Boiling a crab

Boiling a crab as part of meal preparation may reveal your growing tolerance and patience with someone who once rubbed you the wrong way in reality. Your previous reaction to avoid or become irritated by this individual may have been caused by their physical appearance, personal hygiene habits or their personality equally. Your ability to stand this man or woman now reflects your growth as a person or your ability to see more than just the one thing about them that annoyed you before.

Multiple crabs

Seeing a large number of crabs gathered together in one place is often thought to indicate an upcoming situation where you would have to lie your way out of or avoid some trouble you have caused. In most cases, this would be because you have failed to finish some task given to you by your superiors or because you do not have the knowledge or experience to follow through with your promises. If you do not mend your ways in the future, you may find there are economical and social costs to not being able to do what you say you can.

Canned crabs

Canned crabs, either on a shelf at the supermarket or within your own cupboards, suggest you would soon be invited to or would attend a small, intimate social gathering. You would likely leave the event with many happy memories you would look back on fondly for years to come, even though the circumstances may have seemed bland, boring or unimportant in the moment.

Cooking crab meat

Cooking crab meat in order to prepare some dish or recipe is often thought to represent success in minor personal battles or inconveniences. More specifically, it points out that there is a single individual present in your reality who, until recently, has been extremely stubborn or uncooperative in their interactions with you. If you tried to eat or taste some of what you were making, it may indicate that the person with unwavering, dogged determination is yourself. You may have recently been in a situation where you refused to listen to or even consider the other side's argument. There is a possibility that your behavior has come across as rude or unreasonable, making others uncomfortable and upset.

Crab-like bugs inside the leg

Pulling dead crab-like bugs from an open wound in my leg. They were not full-size crabs, but they were flat and hard. I am a female.

Crabs denote dependency and neediness. As such, the wound could predict an incident that would make you painfully aware of your tendency to be clingy. The aftermath of this event could trigger an inner transformation. Specifically, pulling out dead crabs from the wound suggests a firm resolve to be more independent in order to avoid getting hurt that way again.

Eating crabs

Eating the meat of a crab during the course of a dream vision may reveal an upcoming scenario or period of time when you would become sick, ill or otherwise incapacitated. Even though it would be a relatively minor inconvenience in the grand scheme of things, it would be troubling and distracting enough to prevent you from focusing on more important or pressing tasks.

A crab washed ashore

The image of a crab being washed ashore by the waves of the ocean is often thought to be an indicator of upcoming business or financial opportunities. Taking advantage of the chance offered could lead to some profitable outcomes, either professionally or personally. Furthermore, this would give you a once in a lifetime occasion to try something new and outside your comfort zone. In this sense, this vision of a crab on the shore is also a bit of a warning as well because others may criticize or rebuke you for not taking advantage of the situation or squandering the chance to make it big.

Being pinched by a crab

Having a part of your body pinched by the claw of a crab is often interpreted as a negative symbol in the world of dreams. It is often thought to be an indicator that you and your best friend would soon be separated from each other or forced apart. While this may be due to outside influences or circumstances, it is also possible that this once trusted individual has shared some of your deeply personal information in the hopes of advancing their own agenda or raising their esteem in the eyes of your enemies. If you happened to see someone else being pinched by a crab, it may mean that they are about to fall victim to a similar fate. This man or woman would likely be humiliated or disgraced by the loss of face, so it may be up to you to save them from this possible situation.

Stepping on a crab

Stepping on a crab during the course of a dream vision is often thought to represent the dreamer's tendency to not learn from their mistakes. If you see this symbol in a dream vision, it is likely that you do not just make a mistake once or twice, you consistently act in a manner contrary to how you should. This lack of care not only causes problems in current tasks but also may become a larger issue affecting your personal brand and the integrity of those who still stand up for you. You may be unable to break the cycle until you take responsibility for your actions and learn to act in an appropriate manner.

Other people catching crabs

Watching other people catching and collecting crabs speaks of your recent unsuccessful attempts to gain the support and aid of someone more influential and powerful than yourself. In a sense, this vision could be suggesting that those who caught the crabs were able to get what you were unable to. However, rather than having a negative connotation about your failure to get help from others, this vision suggests you should rely on your own ability to find quick and clever ways to get things done.

Cutting a crab

Cutting up a crab or crab meat, whether you were doing so with unknown purpose or just to prepare a meal, may represent your current efforts to overcome bad habits or negative parts of your personality. Through your consistent efforts and dedication, you would become more independent, healthier and happier. You would also see improvements in other areas of your life because of the small changes you make to constantly better yourself.

Killing a pregnant crab

There was a pregnant crab hiding in the drain pipe of my basin. And the only way I could get it out was by killing it, so it wouldn't pinch me. But it struggled to die. I think I eventually got it out, but it was half alive. I knew this cos it was still trying to pinch my hands.

Crabs in dreams represent determination and stubbornness. They could also reflect clingy behavior and a futile attempt to hang on to something or someone. The pregnant crab in your dream alludes to a downward spiral, when improper behavior is giving way to more complications and putting you in a compromising situation. Alternatively, a destructive relationship may be becoming more burdensome and it would be easier to cut ties rather than drag it out to your detriment. The drain, meanwhile, implies release and removal of undesirable aspects of your life. As such, your subconscious is telling you to do away with the things that are obstructing your path to personal development. Cleaning up your act and your life by letting go of certain things, behavior and connections won't be easy, especially for those with a strong hold on you, however, your will and resolve could get you back on course.

A crab eating a cockroach

I dreamt about a crab grabbing a cockroach from its back and eating it.

Dreaming of a crab eating a cockroach represents your ongoing personal transformation. You may be trying to get rid of certain undesirable traits or attitudes that are holding you back from realizing your full potential. The crab is a representation of your sheer will and determination to succeed, especially if you are currently finding yourself immersed in some competitive or contentious environment, such as a new job or circumstances which require poise and concentration.
