To dream of rats symbolizes that you have an inner fear of being stabbed in the back or are concerned someone may be deceiving you. Rats are also highly sociable and can suggest doing something that you are not proud. Rats could also mean that you are trying to hide some unpleasant thoughts and could be symbolic of the things you wish to forget in life.

Dead Rats Dream Meaning: . To see a dead rat in your dream is much like drawing the Death card in tarot. It symbolizes the ending of a relationship or situation. Dreaming of dead rats also portrays your fear of facing a certain problem or situation in waking life but what has to be done has to be done and the faster you do it, the better!

Killing Rats in a Dream: Killing a rat in a dream is one of the more positive signs when dreaming about rats. This indicates your abilities to overcome any issues or difficulties you have in your waking life are strong. It can also signify a strong protective feeling towards those around you or to a situation, for example protecting your job.

If you dream of Rats Biting You: A dream of a biting rat can mean a fear of backstabbing and betrayal in waking life. This dream can happen when you are giving someone a chance to prove their loyalty but worry they will let you down. If this has in fact happened, next time, be more careful who you share secrets with and avoid people that your intuition tells you to avoid.

Dreaming of Rats Crawling on You: If you’re being chased by a rat in your dream or have rats crawling all over you, it indicates you’re running away from whatever you have to face immediately in waking life. The advice is to show others who you really are. To dream of being chased by many rats predicts unseen success if you handle it right. The advice is to just focus on what you do best and everything else will happen as planned.
