    As always, the correct interpretation of such dreams depends on the details. So, looking at an aquarium with clear water and fish swimming inside reveals a happy and peaceful mood.
    However, if the water is dirty or the fish are nervous, the oneiric scene might be giving you clues about your repressed impulses.

    If the fish are dead in the aquarium it is a sign of vain hopes and disappointments.

    A beautiful habitat enclosed in glass, filled with creatures that breathe water instead of air …. Aquariums symbolize the small realities we keep self-contained within us: our fantasy lives, our dreams for the future, our separate worlds of work, family, and love. 

    Aquarium dreams celebrate these inner worlds, but also show us how we limit ourselves by our own rules and preconceived notions about the world. You can’t swim past that glass wall. 
    To break an aquarium means your neatly compartmentalized realities are breaking down. Time to integrate some parts of your life? 
    To dream you are inside an aquarium means you limit yourself, or someone else limits you. If you don’t like it, take a deep breath and step out into the open air.
