I just need to know the common interpretation of otters as a symbol in dreams, thanks.

May you find what you seek,

Otters are related to the water element, as river creatures. Also, from their general behavior, they can symbolize playfulness. Are you being invited to return to a playful attitude in some area of your life, now that there's been some water under the bridge?

Nothing that light hearted I'm afraid. Twice now I've dreamed of a wide pit in the ground at the base of an oak tree, scattered with dead otters in various states of decay. Ordinarily I'm fairly accomplished at dream interpretation, I even offer them as a service through Art of Creation, but this one is bothering me.

I have fond memories of watching the otters at the Virginia Marine Science Museum (which I continue to refuse to call the Virginia Aquarium), and the whole playfulness thing definitely fits. Thank you for reminding me of what I already know.

We're moving next month, and I won't be seeing them again. Been under a lot of stress lately, so an appropriate interpretation may be either my subconscious dealing with a little separation anxiety; or my mind's morbid way of reminding me to relax and have some fun; or a little of both.

May you find what you seek,
Landra
