Gazing into an aquarium in a dream may represent contained emotions. It may represent the microcosm, as it contains an entire ecosystem of life, and may invoke contemplation and relaxation.
Symbolic of being trapped or feeling examined
A place or situation which does not allow personal privacy, i.E.
The office of a public servant; see “water”
To see fish in an aquarium, is indicative of small pleasures that last of short duration either in your life or to come.
The condition and size of the fish tank or aquarium, is also an indicator as to the quality and/or quantity of the pleasure.
Artificial living space. Unnatural, deep (repressed) desires for a more natural lifestyle.
To see an aquarium in your dream symbolizes that you are aware of your emotions, but you have not yet confronted them. It may refer to your unconscious thoughts or desires.
An aquarium dream may also indicate that you need to take some time for yourself to relax and unwind.
Peace, harmony and beauty in one’s life.
Dreams of an aquarium represent your desire to contain the ocean of your emotions and control the passion of your sexual expression. See Fish and Water.
Water in all forms is a very meaningful symbol. It may represent emotions, the unconscious, sexuality, and, at times, life itself. Before interpreting this symbol first consider the other details in the dream and the overall quality of the dream experience.
The aquarium could represent a portion of your life or a “slice of life.” Aquariums are generally balanced and fully contained ecosystems. People enjoy aquariums because they find them soothing and relaxing. Thus, this dream’s message may be a call for contemplation and relaxation. It may represent life in a small setting as a compensation to the stress and, at times, overwhelming complexity of daily experiences. See also: Water, Ocean, and River

The clear glass of the aquarium allows you to see through into your subconscious or matters of spirit. So, what’s going on in the fish tank, and what creatures live there? A healthy carp, for example, symbolizes an optimistic outlook, whereas dark, murky waters indicate a soul in need of a good housecleaning.
