Dreams of Giant Octopi

Okay, so it’s supposed to be octopuses, but I really prefer octopi, so that’s what I’m using. Leif and I have both had dreams about a giant octopus recently. Leif dreamed he was on the outer edge of a whirlpool, trying to swim away, but there was also an octopus that was slowly swirling and he was trying to avoid the tentacles. He knew that if the octopus grabbed him, he would definitely be sucked down. Leif attributes it to fighting negativity and depression, not wanting to get “sucked down.”

My dream was that I was on a ship with a group of people, all stuck in a large conference room somewhere near the bottom of the ship. The room was dim and I knew we had to get out for some reason, but no one believed me. I finally made my way to the top of the ship where a saw a huge black octopus descending on the ship. It’s black mouth opened and it looked like it was going to swallow the ship whole, so I jumped into the ocean and began swimming away. I knew that even if it didn’t swallow all of the ship, the weight of it would drag the ship down. I was the only one to escape. I’m not sure of the meaning of that, but I think it’s the first dream I’ve ever had with a giant octopus.

  1. Well I had to look it up and quick googling says that dreaming of an octopus:

    Having too many projects on the go at once
    Feeling pulled in several different directions simultaneously


    The sea octopus represents a chaotic, eight-legged vortex of flesh and confusion. If you see one in a dream, it may be a sign that you should avoid careless infatuations or juggling relationships.

    Or it may mean that you are overly possessive and too clingy in a relationship


    Seeing an eight-legged octopus could means that you are held by unconscious fears and cannot make things happen.

    Interesting. I have never dreamed of an octopus. I wonder if I will tonight.
