Dream of Goldfish Jumping Out of Tank (What is the MYSTERY?)

Dream of Goldfish Jumping Out of Tank

Who does not like to dream? Or let me ask you, ‘Do you have a choice what to dream when you are dreaming while sleeping?’ Well, the answer is no, but not entirely. Sounds puzzling, right? 

Let me break it down for you. Your dreams are a way of telling you what your conscious self is unable to tell you, which means your dream might have a meaning. And if you have ever dreamed of a goldfish jumping out of a tank, this article is only for you! 

Dream of Goldfish Jumping Out of Tank: 

The dream of goldfish does not have a definite/ exact meaning. You could see a goldfish jumping out of your tank, which might indicate a few scenarios.

According to many people, goldfish generally implies confusion (according to Chinese traditions, it brings good luck). Jumping means you are trying to stand up for yourself.

In addition, the tank indicates your ground. It might seem like you are facing some confusion about your identity/ individuality, and you are trying to stand for yourself! 

However, do not jump to a conclusion yet, my friend! Although the characters and actions (goldfish, jumping, tank) are the same, it could lead to different exciting meanings!

What Are the Different Meanings Behind a Goldfish Dream? 

As previously mentioned, the goldfish dream has many different interpretations to it. Please note that there is no exact interpretation. However, I will tell you a few interpretations to ease your situation! So, buckle up, folks! 

1. Losing Money

Some of us are very kindhearted, and as a result, we tend to be exploited as well. Dreaming about goldfish means that it is time for yourself to pick a strict route.

However, it does not necessarily mean that you have to become a very cold-hearted person or you are not allowed to help your peers. 

It simply means that it is okay to help others. However, when you see that people around you are using you to extort money from you, it is probably time for you to take a few steps back or say ‘NO’ to them. 

2. Staying Cautious

I always say that my 6th sense does not work, which means when there is a danger, I rarely get to sense it. 

However, I probably do get to sense it. It is just that I do not notice the omen. Dreams are a way of telling us whatever we are feeling around us. Goldfish jumping out of the tank means a lot of negativity around you. You do seem to feel it.

However, it is not happening openly. More like people are playing around you in disguise. Thus, your inner self is trying to get rid of the negativity and urging you to stay cautious! 

3. Ambition, Acquisition, Achievement 

Well, this one is my personal favorite! Dreaming about goldfish jumping out of the tank means that you are a very hardworking and self-made person. You do not stay content with whatever you are being given. You demand more from life. 

You are not lethargic; you work for your success and on yourself. You are a born risk-taker, and you prove yourself more and more by smashing all your obstacles. It also implies that it is not always easy to win. However, you do not give up.

You dive into the failure like a goldfish dives into the water, and then you overcome your obstacles just like a goldfish jumps out of the tank! 

4. Tragedy or Strategy? 

There are two sides to a coin: you either lose everything or get everything! 

Dreaming about goldfish implies that you are a logical thinker and believe in strategic moves. You keep yourself away from rush actions. However, your strategy sometimes becomes very risky, gets you on edge, and might fall off the cliff anytime. 

Thus, if you dream about a goldfish jumping out of the water, it is probably time for you to take a deep breath and redesign your strategies to minimize the possible damages (in case things go awry). 

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What Does It Mean When a Fish Tries to Jump Out of the Tank?

Answer: Deprivation of Oxygen. The prime reason is that your fish is being deprived of the needed oxygen as well, as the environment inside the tank is deteriorating, and because of this, your fish is trying to get out of the tank. 

Do Fish Jump Because They Are Happy?

Answer: Yes, they do. Like humans, fish also tend to express excitement and joy by moving and jumping. So your fish could also jump when it is ‘eating time’ and when you are feeding them. 

Can a Goldfish Dream Indicate Misfortune?

Answer: It depends on your environment. Goldfish are usually a symbol of good luck; if they jump out of the water, it could imply that your good luck is going away. However, the interpretation could also vary depending on your personality, environment, and other elements in your dream. 

What Does a Goldfish Symbolize?

Answer: Good luck and good fortune. A traditional Chinese practice, Feng Shui, suggests that fish, in general, symbolizes abundance and harmony. 


There is no exact interpretation of a goldfish dream, and I would you not jump to a conclusion. However, the scenario of your dream may help you to figure out what your subconscious mind is trying to tell you. 

A goldfish jumping out of the tank could imply: 

  • Losing money
  • Staying Cautious
  • Ambition, Acquisition, Achievement 
  • Tragedy or Strategy? 

It is up to you what or where you find yourself the most suitable.

Have a sound sleep and keep dreaming, my friend! And let me ask you all, “What is your goldfish dream?”
