All creatures associated with the sea generally portray the living side, yet repressed qualities of the unconscious. To dream of a crab can suggest moving back and forth indecisively as you pursue something. This is a highly self-protective creature that can be ‘weighted down’ by its own armor as a message to release insecurities and fear. Associated with the astrological sign of Cancer as an Archetype, the symbolism of the Crab ties it to the mother or the idea of a safe and secure homelife. If there are many tiny crabs, you may have a sense that your own insecurities are keeping you from enjoying life. See Sealife and Water.
