You are your own star. You are your own light. Your star is rising.

Starfish Meaning and Messages

In this case, Starfish symbolism is reminding you that although you see things as black and white, there is also a middle road with many shades of gray. In other words, spirit animal insists that you understand that what you perceive as right or wrong may also fall into these categories. Thus you must discern where you must give and where you must take. Therefore the Starfish meaning is letting you know that fighting for the whole shebang will not serve you or anyone else. Moreover, like the Beetle, compromise will ease the conflict and resolve any dispute.

Alternatively, the Starfish symbolism may be letting you know that you have to start using some of your higher senses in the situation you are currently finding yourself. Furthermore, when you let go of sight and sound, then you will be able to feel what is right. After all, the heart will always recognize the appropriate action.

Starfish Totem, Spirit Animal

People with the Starfish totem move through life doing most things in their unique way. Like the Owl totem, they trust their instincts. Folks with this spirit animal also have the innate ability to discern new possibilities and opportunities. Thus they can follow their inner voice and heart to achieve their goals and desires. People with this power animal totem tend to see things either as black or white, up or down, and right or wrong. Therefore they will occasionally judge others with this criterion rather than recognizing that all things are usually balanced somewhere in the middle.

Starfish Dream Interpretation

When you have a Starfish dream, like the Dragonfly and Bear,  it suggests that you are undergoing a period of healing and regeneration after a period of pain and chaos. Alternatively, it could also mean that you have many options to weigh and decisions to make.

A beached, dead, or dying Sea Star is a symbol of lost connections. In other words, you have forgotten to listen to your inner voice and heart. Occasionally, a rainbow-hued Sea Star vision will announce that spectacular things are about to happen. Thus you are in for a bit of a roller coaster ride. However, you will enter a period of contentment in your life.

  1. I have a dream, in my dream I was lay on the floor like something was wrong with me and someone come to see what wrong with me. I was not able to talk as this person is shaking and calling for help I started vomiting a lot of starfish pieces, and whole starfish as well. After vomiting that when I get to myself back. It’s very strange I don’t know what it means.

  2. I had a dream I was driving and dead starfish lined the whole road. The road lead to an exs house but that’s not where I was going.

  3. I had a dream, I was standing in a room with four people and one said he wants to help me but i should open my palm so I did, he poured some water in my palm and put a starfish in the water that’s on my palm, and we watched if the star fish would float or remain at the bottom and suddenly it started floating and man told me I’ll soon make it, then he took back the starfish

  4. About a year I had a dream where I saw people walking out of the sea, above them there were lots airplanes, and underneath these airplanes were octopuses and Starfish hanging. They were huge , maybe 300 cm each. The people all seemed to be in shock….

      In combination with octopuses and starfish, it means you will rise from the obstacles with the help of camouflage (octopus) and seeing the situation more gray than black and white (starfish). This might mean that you may be seeing specific people and yourself as either 100% good or bad, instead of somewhere in the middle. If a bad person does good things sometimes, that doesn’t make the person good. If a good person does bad things sometimes, that doesn’t make the person bad. You need to know how to tell the difference, and camouflage like an octopus to adapt to the situation.

      The big octopus attacking was likely the burdens of several responsibilities at once, and the starfish represented how a less black and white worldview protects you. Perhaps you view your achievements and accomplishments as either 100% good or bad, which includes other people’s accomplishments as well. Just because you get a few mistakes doesn’t make a 92% good and 8% bad accomplishment 100% bad. Neither is it fair when you end up thinking of others 92% good work as 100% good work, and you put yourself to an unfair standard instead.

  5. I remember I dreamt this quote in my dream.. Doesn’t sound like it makes sense, but I feel it means something.Very strange and curious to understand the meaning. Appreciate it anybody could help!
    “The sea star dipped in water is hard inside”

    1. EspionageCookie

      Water is a classic symbol that means emotion, and really the meaning of the 4 elements are probably one of the basics any dream interpreter or Tarot reader should know. A sea star dipped in water means that it represents trusting your intuition (sea star) through the guidance of your emotions (dipped in water). When the sea star gets hard under water, it means that the water or emotion makes it stronger, rather than weakens it. Love is powerful, not weak. Love can motivate people to do all kinds of impossible challenges. It’s just that doing things for others out of fear rather than love gets mistaken for love very often.

  6. I had a dream I was at some beach with crystal clear water and every time I went to swim in it I would have star fish attached to me , there was more then one but they glued themselves to me . Very strange

      Giving birth in a dream may not mean a literal pregnancy, but can also mean the creativity of something new. A starfish can represent all types of new creative projects as well, such as with the phrase “wish upon a star.” You may also want to also look up the Tarot card the Star.

  7. The symbolism of the starfish is me to a T!!!
    My friends have always sought me out for advice and I’m very in tune with my innerself…
    An empath and indigo child …
    Not only is my name Star, but I’ve always been fascinated by starfish and now after a year of searching, I’ve found my next tattoo.

    1. I moved 3 years ago to a new home and was cleaning the house before moving in. In the midst of cleaning, in all the trash, was a dry, cute, little Starfish. And something just told me “this Starfish is important. You need to keep it. ” so i did. That was long before i was as connected to my spirituality as i am now.
      So i just stumbled upon it again yesterday. From that time, to now, has been the rock bottom for my family and i. Times have been so hard, where i just feel so much like giving up. So i came across the Starfish and remembered that something told me it was important. And then it clicked, i found this Starfish for a reason.. I’ve recently began building my totem and i knew as soon as i remembered that , that i was connected to Starfish. Like telling me everything will be okay. ♡
