The crawfish spends most of its time in the recesses of water reservoirs and leads a very secretive life. It leaves its hiding place only in the evening and goes hunting. As the dream symbol, the animal represents repressed and hidden emotions. The dream about this creature suggests that the dreamer is a very sensitive and timid person, but at the same time they create the appearance of unavailability and emotional chill.
Since the crawfish lives in water, which is connected with the sphere of feelings and unconsciousness, the dream symbolizes the painful memories or desires that the dreamer hides at the bottom of the heart and does not expose them because one is afraid of the reactions of the environment.
