The rest of the first 5 symbols
#2 – Pregnancy
This one is a positive symbol, and if you’re female, it’s unlikely to be literal (unless you have prophetic dreams, but that’s a whole other story!). Pregnancy is a metaphorical symbol of giving birth to something new. Something in your life is growing and developing, like some aspect of yourself or ideas, plans, or goals.
#3 – Crocodiles
Living in Australia, you’d think there would be plenty of other creepy animals to dream up first. Crocodiles symbolize freedom, hidden strength and power. But it could also mean that someone around you is giving you bad advice, so maybe consider this one!
#4 – Spiders
We knew we must be dreaming of another typically scary creature. A dream spider has many different meanings, from feeling like an outsider in a situation or trying to avoid temptation, to feminine power or an authoritative mother figure. (Better be careful who you share this dream with!) But it can also signify a powerful force protecting you from self-destructive behavior.
#5 – Give birth
It must be terrifying for men! Similar to dreaming about being pregnant, it is not literal and signifies giving birth to a new idea or project. It also represents a new attitude, a new beginning or a major event.

5 tips for interpreting your dreams
As the above shows, there are many ways to interpret your dreams and you can get lost in a dream dictionary for hours. So here are some tips to help you make sense of those nighttime movies in your head.
1. Don’t try to interpret every thing you dream of – just choose the strongest elements or what you feel most connected to.
2. Or you can ignore the symbols and focus on how you felt about the dream, this can help you interpret it better.
3. Ask yourself, “How is what happened in my dream like in my life?” “. For example, if you had trouble climbing a wall in your dream, you might be thinking about where you encounter an obstacle in your life. It may be time to examine the problem and find a solution.
4. Keep a journal by your bed and write down your dreams as soon as you wake up. It will also help you recognize recurring dreams and symbols.
5. Finally, remember that sometimes a dream is just a dream and doesn’t need to have any significant meaning. It could just be you processing what happened in your day. Especially if you watched stranger things then dreamed of dark and scary monsters! Nothing for you…unless you do (go back to tip 3!).
