Mermaid/Mermen Symbolism, Meaning, Mythology, & Dreams

Merfolk tend to be free whimsical creatures, they can be seen as guardians and menders. However they can come across as evil or cruel creatures too, because sailors thought that these mermaids were actually sirens and wanted to lure them towards the rocks so they could get eaten, usually a misunderstanding. This symbolizes how mer-people can be misunderstood by their rebellious nature.

Dreaming of Merfolk can mean you are searching for something deep within your self as the water realm is the realm of the intuition, feeling, and the unconscious. A darker mean can mean you are drowning in your emotions, and long for freedom from a specific problem.

This is a reminder that you have your own personal power within, like Mer-people, which comes from personal strength and self-confidence. Keep on swimming or keep going so that you can conquer everything standing in your way!
