To dream of a caterpillar suggests we are about to undertake a major change in life. Typically, this change will result in something of much worth.
The symbol of a caterpillar is of metamorphosis or the spiritual potential, largely unrecognized, which must transmute into something more beautiful. We must change and grow from what we are now into a different way of being.
Psychological / emotional perspective: To dream of caterpillars would indicate that we need to remain flexible in our attitude to change. Also, because of the caterpillar’s association with creeping things, it may represent evil or difficulty.
Material aspects: The caterpillar appearing in a dream usually indicates that we are undergoing some form of major change. We may be being warned that we must undergo a complete upheaval before we can achieve our goal. There may well then be a period of transition or apparent stasis.
Gives gender - specific: The caterpillar is a recognizable first symbol of the growth process. In a woman’s dream it may represent an awareness of a potential pregnancy whereas for a boy such an image suggests his emerging sexuality. In a man’s dream a caterpillar signifies the commencement of a journey of discovery about his spirituality.
To dream of a caterpillar implies that you are slowly progressing towards reaching your inner spirituality. You haven’t yet achieved your objectives, but you are definitely on the right path.
Vision: Seeing a caterpillar: new possibilities will open up—pay attention but be cautious. Watching several caterpillars: some people don’t have your best interests at heart, but be very careful. Things are turning out to be very different from what you expected. Catching or killing a caterpillar: your distrust in anodier person is justified—as you will soon find out.
Depth Psychology: You—or people around you—have hidden talents that will emerge later.
The caterpillar can also point to physical cravings, because it is “blind to the intellectual and spiritual dimension.”
