As a builder / gatherer the beaver suggests industriousness, preservation and best use of resources.
To see a beaver building a dam indicates that you need to expend a great amount of energy and determination in order to attain your objectives. You need to confront issues that may exist between you and your associates. You will need these people as allies, as they are detrimental to the success of your ambitions. Without their loyalty, you will possibly face failure.
To see a beaver industriously building a dam shows that much hard work is to be expected before you eventually realize your goals.
If the beaver is in distress, or has trouble with his building, this is indicative of a need to change your career as the goal you have set may be unrealistic.
Seeing a beaver in a dream means initiating a project that will not be completed, or it could mean living with false hopes. (Also see Dog)
To dream of this animal foretells substantial comfort that you will achieve through your own efforts.

1. Hard work brings success, monetary gains.
2. Natural obstacles to a goal; consider rethinking a plan.

Beavers are very busy animals. They gnaw all day and build their homes. They are generally not considered to be friendly animals. All of their hard work is focused on isolating and protecting themselves. When dreaming about these animals, consider those characteristics and try to see how they are relevant to you or someone in your life. Is there isolation and blocking up of feelings and self-expression going on around you? Or is something gnawing at you that you can no longer ignore? If you can answer these questions, you will have a better understanding of your dream.
