Frogs are symbols of change, transformation, and communication. Let’s take a look at what it means to dream about a frog and how it can help you!

What Does it Mean to Dream About a Frog?

Dreaming of a frog can have several meanings. Here are the most common themes we see in dreams about them:

  • Transformation and Change
  • Adaptability
  • Communication

Transformation and Change

Frogs have a unique life cycle that involves transformation. Starting out as eggs laid in water, they hatch into tadpoles. Over time, the tadpoles undergo metamorphosis, developing legs and lungs while their tails disappear. Eventually, they emerge from the water as adult frogs, ready to hop and croak in their new environment.

Because of this, many cultures, see frogs as symbols of transformation and change. Seeing one in a dream reminds us to embrace change and to be flexible in our actions.

Another big theme we see in dreams about frogs is one of being adaptable. Frogs are amphibians, which makes them unique because even if they live in the water they still require oxygen to breathe. Many frogs live between the land and the water.

In addition to being able to adapt to different environment, there are many species of tree frogs that change color. Similar to chameleons, these frogs are capable of changing their skin color to blend in with their surroundings and avoid predators.

Not surprisingly, seeing a frog in our dreams reminds us that it is a great strength to be adaptable and resilient. Being able to embrace change and stay flexible helps us survive the ups and downs of everyday life.


Lastly, your dream about frogs could be one about communication. Frogs are well-known for their classic “ribbit”, croaking, chirping and the other sounds they make. If you dream about a frog, it could mean that you need to think about effective ways of communicating your thoughts and ideas to others.

Examples of Frogs in Dreams

Here are some examples of frogs in dreams that can help you better understand what your dream means.

If you dream of holding a frog in your hands you have a strong desire for a wish to come true.

If you dream of a frog in water this suggests that you are dealing with an emotionally challenging situation but that you have the confidence to successfully navigate your way through it and come out alright.

If you hear frogs croaking in your dream this could serve as a “wake-up call” and may indicate that you need to better communicate in a situation, or it can mean that you are not paying attention to what someone is trying to tell you.

If you dream of a frog, remember to stay open to change and trust in your ability to overcome obstacles. Often times you are stronger than you think!

Other Things to Consider in Dreams About Frogs

Rarely in dreams do we dream of a single isolated thing – chances are if you had a dream about a frog you also had a dream about water (or in the case of tree frogs, trees!)

Water almost always symbolizes emotion in our dreams so understanding the symbolism of water in dreams can help you identify potential emotions coming to the surface.

Trees are often a symbol of wisdom and knowledge, as well as connection to the world around you. See the meaning of trees for more.

Pay Attention to Colors!

Frogs are typically green when we think of them, but many other colors are possible also! If you remember any vivid colors in the dream, understanding the meaning of colors can be helpful in understanding more about the meaning of the dream.

For example:

  • Dreaming of a red frog can mean that you are looking to make big and powerful changes in your life. See meaning of red in dreams.
  • A yellow frog could mean that you are feeling insecure or powerless. See yellow dream meaning.
  • A green frog can be a sign of abundance or wealth. See the meaning of green.
  • A blue frog in your dream can mean that you are looking for stability or may be going through some upheaval. See blue dream meaning.
  • A brown frog could be a sign that you are not receiving clear communication about something.

You will also want to pay attention to the different types of frogs in your dreams. For example, a tree frog can symbolize transformation and renewal, while a bullfrog may represent power and assertiveness.

It’s also so very important to consider the context of the dream and your own personal associations with frogs. If you have a pet frog you are going to have a different association than someone who doesn’t!

Tips to Interpret Your Frog Dream Meaning

Here are some questions to ask to help you interpret your frog dream meaning:

  • How did the frog appear in your dream? Was it hopping, swimming, or sitting still? This movement can be a clue to what is currently happening in your life.
  • What emotions did you feel during the dream?
  • Are frogs significant to you in any way in your waking life?
  • Have there been any recent events in your life that are related to transformation, adaptability or communication?
