Frogs are amazing animals. There are hundreds of different frogs, all over the planet. From those fascinating tiny colorful creatures, equipped with some of the deadliest venoms on earth, over cute little ones taken as pets, to unfairly scorned thuds.
Frogs had been turned into symbolical animals in ancient times. These animals are often associated with magic, witchcraft, sorcery, both forces of light and of darkness. In some cultures, frogs are believed to bring luck and fortune.
Interestingly, frogs are not as common dream motif as some other earthly creatures are. This fact makes dreams about frogs even more interesting and, perhaps, more important to a dreamer.
Before we interpret some of the most common frog related dreams, we have to analyze bases of frogs’ symbolism. Frogs live almost everywhere in the world, so different people see them differently.
These amphibians are present in beliefs, myths and legends of many people. In several great mythologies, frogs are associated with the concept and the very idea of overall life and existence, since these animals are closely bound with the element of water.
For example, frogs were believed to possess healing powers, in ancient Celtic lore. For Native Americans, this animal is connected with the power of rain, the life-giving water for their crops.
In Asian cultures, frogs are associated with magical powers and abilities to act as mediums between realms of the Dead and the Living. They are believed to have positive and protective energy. Jade frog figurines are very common motif in Asian people.
These are believed to protect dear and loved deceased people on their way to afterlife. Of course, Chinese Feng Shui frog is a lucky symbol; it brings fortune and wealth to home. Frogs have similarly positive meanings in Japan, as well.
For the most Westerners, frogs are associated with witchcraft and dark magic; when speaking about frogs, they usually refer to an ugly toad.
You know all those stories about a handsome young prince turned into a toad?
Since frogs are creatures that are rather heard than seen, in western concepts, they are associated with secrets, hiding and all sorts of mysterious works.
