Being Chased by a Lizard

Dreaming of being chased by a lizard represents possible bullying, especially in the workplace. Being chased by a lizard can bring the dreamer an uneasy feeling – the same uneasiness brought by bullying. The dreamer should take steps to lessen this bullying and not tolerate it, even if it comes from someone superior to the dreamer.

Running Away from a Lizard

This dream is different from being chased by a lizard. In this dream, the dreamer is running away from the lizard, but the lizard is not necessarily chasing them.

This dream appears because the dreamer feels a certain level of fear from someone. This person can be someone the dreamer finds intimidating or fearful.

Attacking a Lizard

It is a manifestation of inner strength and a positive self-image. It is a good time for the dreamer to pursue their endeavors and start new opportunities or complete their unfinished tasks.

Getting Attacked by a Lizard

If the dream is the other way around, in which the lizard is attacking the dreamer, it becomes a negative omen. It is a dream about hindrance and betrayal. The dreamer should be wary of their enemies as well as those close to them.

This could be a sign that someone who the dreamer trusts will hinder them from doing something that benefits the dreamer. It is suggested that the dreamer should be extremely careful when they come across this dream.

Getting Bitten by a Lizard

Dreaming of being bitten by a lizard is also not a good sign. It might hint at possible financial setbacks. It is suggested that the dreamer should be careful of their spendings.

Eating a Lizard

Although they seem dangerous, only a few species of lizards are poisonous. That is why eating lizards in some cultures are quite common. Some of these cultures even believe that lizard meat has healing properties.

Having a dream about eating a lizard is a good sign. It can represent wealth and positive finances.

Killing a Lizard

Dreaming of killing a lizard denotes conquering struggles. It represents the successful attempts of the dreamer in facing their problems. It could also represent the dreamer’s desire to regain their good reputation once again.

Alternatively, it could also have a negative interpretation. It could be a sign of an injury. It could represent a person who will challenge the dreamer. It could also signify that the dreamer is overly sensitive to those who criticize them.

Having a Lizard Inside Your Body

Dreaming of having a lizard inside the dreamer’s body represents a person who plans to take advantage of the dreamer. This is a sign for the dreamer to be careful with the people around them.
