If you see water in your dreams, your emotions are front and center the focus of the dream, as water always signifies our emotional undercurrents.

From an astrological perspective, the Water signs in the zodiac (Scorpio, Pisces, and Cancer) are the most emotional signs of the zodiac, and this makes them also the most intuitive signs of the zodiac for this reason.

They rely on their feelings to read people, and it works very well for them. A person who is a Water sign may be involved in your life if water appears in your dream.

Dreaming About Swimming in Water

If you dream you are swimming in a body of water, it is likely you are exploring the psychic world and your own intuitive realm.

If the water in your dream is turbulent, you may be going through an emotional experience right now.

The body of water matters too. If you are swimming in a small bath it suggests the emotions you are dealing with in waking life are relatively controlled.

If you dream you are in a huge sea with waves crashing around you, it suggests your emotional experiences are intense and require important attention in your waking life.

Dreaming About Drowning & Being Rescued

If you dream you are struggling in the water and need to be rescued/are being rescued, it indicates that your emotions are overwhelming you in your waking life and it is essential to focus on them so they do not overpower you.

Pay attention to who is rescuing you in the dream. The person may play a huge role in helping you out of your emotional turmoil.

Dreaming About Drinking Water

If you dream you are drinking water then it represents feelings of longing in your waking life. It indicates that the satisfaction of your longing is within your reach.

This type of dream indicates that change is coming and the emotional loss you have suffered will begin the healing process.

If you were parched before drinking the water, this shows that this change has been a long time coming, and your efforts have paid off. If you are parched but cannot find water, this dream is telling you that the change is still a distance away and that you must keep working to get there. While this might be frustrating to some, this is still an indicator that you are on the right path.
