What Do Dreams Of Frogs Really Mean?

Frogs are interesting dream symbols, and can mean a range of different things, depending on the context of the dream, your own associations with frogs, and how you feel during the dream itself.

Dreaming of frogs can be an odd experience, especially if you don’t see frogs very often during your day-to-day life.

But what do frogs generally mean in dreams? What about specific dreams? Let’s take a look.

What Do Frogs Mean In Dreams?

Frogs in dreams essentially represent transformation, rebirth, and expanding your horizons, but there are also different themes to consider, too. 


One of the most prevalent reasons why frogs appear in dreams is an underlying fear.

This is usually of frogs themselves, but it can also be a manifestation of  a different fear that may be lurking in the back of your mind, and this dream is a way of confronting it safely.

It could be that your dream is urging you to face your anxieties.

Rocky Relationships

As we know from traditional fairy tales, frogs are associated with soulmates, royalty, and relationships.

Dreaming of frogs can be a signal that a significant relationship – either romantic or platonic – is about to deteriorate.

There could be wildly different reasons why this might happen, ranging from a petty argument that blows up into a full-scale episode of betrayal.

You may have to decide if this relationship is worth repairing, if the reason for the fallout is bad enough.

In which case, you should take some time for yourself to clear your head and heal your heart before jumping into a new relationship, or finding a similar connection with someone else.


As frogs famously evolve through several stages before they become adult frogs. 

Dreaming of frogs can indicate that you’re about to go through several stages of change before you reach a long term goal or aspiration.

This is a positive omen, as you’ll not only have valuable experience to carry you forward, but you will have reached your goal, too.

Don’t Judge By Appearances

Some of the oldest tales involving frogs have a message: the first impression of someone is rarely accurate.

Frogs in dreams may manifest when you’ve made up your mind about someone, whether that’s positively or negatively, but what they are really like is likely completely different from your opinion of them.

Maybe you’ve misread their intentions, and something only looks the way it does from the outside.

You’re Hesitating

Frogs can appear in dreams when you’re holding back in one or more areas of your life. You’re afraid to get burned, or you like the way things are now.

Things will always change, and this is the nature of life, for better or worse, so you might as well try and change things for the better.

If things don’t work out, you’ll still have learned something valuable. 

Common Frog Dreams And What They Mean

How To Interpret Your Dream Of Frogs

The key to interpreting any dream of any kind is to remember how you felt when you saw the most recognizable element of your dream, whether that’s a frog, a toad, or something else entirely.

This dictates whether the dream symbol is positive or negative, and can change the meaning behind your dream entirely.

If you feel joy or relief when you see the frog in your dream, the frog is a good omen for the future.

You may soon be invited to attend an important gathering or ceremony, and this symbol is also linked to increased prosperity, luck, and resilience. 

Rain will also come into this event, and when it comes, you won’t want to change a thing.

If you feel repulsed or scared when you see the frog in your dream, this can be a negative sign for the future.

You may run into some bad luck, which will cost something important to you, through no fault of your own. This may be a bout of illness or instability somewhere in your life.

If you are in a relationship, this will most likely be a problem within your relationship, where you’ll have to question if the connection between you is worth it, or if it’s time to move on.

Dreaming About Toads Or Frogs

Dreaming of frogs or toads is largely a good sign. This dream will bring you good luck in the future, and you’ll be surrounded by joy. 

On the other hand, frogs or toads in your dream may be an indication that you’ll soon receive a lot of heavy criticism, from someone you have a profound connection with.

It will take some time for you to accept their words, but you will be better off for it in the long run.

Seeing Tadpoles In Dreams

Tadpoles appearing in your dream points to personal growth in the near future.

This will come about at the same time as a run of good luck, which will help you gain a new perspective, allowing you to push forward with your goals.

If you dream of seeing a tadpole becoming a frog, you will start on a journey to become the best version of yourself that you can be.

However, if you dream of a frog being turned into a tadpole, you will run into unexpected problems, and these will be significant enough that you’ll doubt your own capabilities.

You’ll need to take some time out to recharge after this, and remember what you’re truly capable of.

Frogspawn In Dreams

Frogspawn in dreams represents joy, optimism, and new life. You’ll enjoy a period of great happiness soon, where other people will also pick up on your positive energy, and this will serve them, too.

You may, in the near future, come to shape your own path into something much better than you ever could have dreamed, and this will be a source of great satisfaction and joy.

If you have been trying for children, or going through an adoption process, dreaming of frogspawn indicates that you’ll soon be in a new chapter of your life before you know it, with kids by your side.

Dreaming Of Frogs In Your House

While this can be an unsettling dream, frogs appearing in your house is a good omen.

It draws your attention to your home life and the relationships within, where you will soon become closer.

This dream is also pointing to an uptick in your finances, as well as your professional life. You may gain a new promotion or make profitable connections which will become vital moving forward.

Through all of this success, it will be important to stop and savor it, even if that’s just for a minute.

If you see frogs croaking inside your home, you’re about to receive pleasant news which will give you a lot of joy.

If you find a frog at the front door of your home, an unannounced visitor will drop by soon, so make sure everything is in order.

A crowd of frogs in your house suggests that you will misplace something valuable shortly, and you will struggle to find it. It may be a great source of stress.

Frogs In Your Bed In A Dream

If you dream of frogs in your bed (yuck!), this points to an uptick in your love life, usually one which is fleeting.

If you don’t have a partner in waking life, you may get together with an ex, or someone completely new is on the horizon.

Having this dream when you aren’t single in waking life points to a period in life where your relationship will become deeper, but similarly, this will be short-lived.

Take care to not get in too deep, as this dream is drawing your attention to an ephemeral connection.

Seeing Frogs In A Toilet 

Dreaming of a frog in the toilet indicates you have been betrayed by someone. This may be something minor, or something life-changing, but you won’t be happy about it.

Or, seeing a frog in a toilet within your dream is pointing to buried emotions that you keep hidden.

You may feel unable to express yourself, and carrying around the unnecessary weight of pent-up feelings will not serve you, or allow you to make the best decisions possible.

Your dream is telling you to let them go.

A Frog Jumping On You In A Dream

If you dream of a frog jumping on you, the frog symbolizes current sources of stress and problems in waking life. Things are getting to you more than you realize.

Perhaps you’re being persuaded to do something that goes against your moral code, but the alternative of refusing is much worse.

Dreaming of more than one frog jumping on you is a bad sign. It can suggest that someone is taking you for granted, or they are just using you to get what they want. 

This dream urges you to be cautious of who you give your power to.

Dreaming Of A Frog In Your Mouth

This is an unsettling one, both in the thought of it and its symbolism. If you dream of a frog in your mouth, something is stopping you from being completely honest in waking life.

Maybe you’re afraid of the potential fallout if you do speak up, or you’re being forced to lie.

This dream can also point to how you’ve lost some influence over others, and you’ll soon find that you’re unable to sway them in some way.

Frogs Attacking You In A Dream

Dreaming of frogs attacking you is linked to how you don’t trust someone, or people in general.

Take a good look at the underlying reasons, and make sure you’re not just projecting a previous experience onto an unrelated situation.

If you feel that someone in your waking life is toxic, it may be time to cut ties with them so that you can move forward.

Seeing Frogs In Water In A Dream

Unfortunately, dreaming of frogs in water is a bad sign. It indicates that there are more than a few problems in store for you in the near future.

The water itself suggests there will be some emotional turmoil involved, especially if the water is cloudy or dirty.

However, there is also a message of resilience and perseverance, drawing your attention to your strength of will.

If you persevere instead of avoiding them when they appear, the problems you’ll encounter will have less of an effect on you.

Religious Interpretations Of Frog Dreams

Islamic Interpretation Of Frog Dreams

In Islam, a frog dream represents your generous nature, and how you always strive to be kind.

This also emanates to the people around you, whether that’s your family or your community, and the ripple effect that kindness can have.

More than one frog in your dream points to a healing process of some sort.

Frog Dreams From A Christian Perspective

Biblically speaking, dreaming of frogs is a bad sign. They represent misfortune and even temptation, which will lead to loss.

However, this dream can serve you by strengthening your faith, and bring you closer to God.

Frog Dreams And Hinduism

Frogs in a dream is a good thing in this case. They signify wealth and satisfaction, as well as protective spirits who will watch over you to keep you safe.
