Dreaming of poop can be an unexpected and awkward dream to have, and I can imagine what must have been going through your mind when you woke up. You may have felt disgusted or not quite understanding why you had such a dream.
Dreams are interpreted through colors, numbers, places, and other symbols—not literally. For example, dreaming of snakes represents healing or regeneration (even though it’s an animal that everyone fears). Similarly, something repulsive, like poop, may actually denote something positive.
Paradoxically, most dreams have the opposite meaning than we would think, and that is what I love about dream interpretation and why I decided to become a dream interpreter.
Why Does Poop In Dreams Symbolize Money?
Dreaming of poop means money because people have always believed that poop is a sign that you are about to acquire wealth and abundance. Many cultures, including the Greek or Native American ones, perceive poop as an omen of financial success or even fertility.
When I was young, I was taken aback when my mom wasn’t mad upon my return home with feces on my shoes. Instead, she appeared to be happy and mentioned something about being lucky. I was too young to understand what she meant. I only grasped the concept when I grew older and learned that many cultures believe that poop, human or animal, is a symbol of good fortune and success.
Moreover, there are many superstitions around the world, and they all agree that dreaming of poop is a sign of good luck, money, and wealth.
Poop Symbolism in Dreams
Poop in dreams has several meanings. Most often, dreaming of poop can be a sign of transformation. Sometimes, we feel stuck in a rut and need to make a change. This can manifest as dreams of poop, telling us that it’s time to let go of what’s been holding us back and move forward.
It can also symbolize a new beginning, as we’re beginning to shed our old ways (our body gets rid of what doesn’t belong there) and start anew.
Some old dream dictionaries interpret a dream about poop as a feeling of shame or embarrassment. However, this interpretation typically describes dreams in which we either eat poop or poop in front of others.
Ancient dream dictionaries have only one interpretation for a dream about poop, and that is money and wealth. I personally interpret dreams mainly from old dream dictionaries because they are the most accurate.
Biblical Meaning of Seeing Feces In A Dream
The Bible views a dream about poop a little differently than ancient or modern dreams. The biblical meaning of seeing feces in a dream is a sign of impurity, spiritual poverty, and disgrace.
It symbolizes an unclean mind, body, and spirit. It is associated with feelings of shame, guilt, and unworthiness.
It can also be a sign of a life filled with unrighteousness and a lack of faith. The Bible says:
You shall have a place outside the camp, and you shall go out to it. And you shall have a trowel with your tools, and when you sit down outside, you shall dig a hole with it and turn back and cover up your excrement.Deuteronomy 23:12-13
So, Does My Dream About Poop Mean Money?
That being said, dreams are interpreted through symbols, and it is impossible to interpret a poop dream without knowing more details. Personally, I see this dream as a sign of money and success if you dream of stepping in poop or if you rub feces all over your body.
On the contrary, if you eat poop in a dream, it is rather perceived as a sign that someone is “feeding you a lie” and wants you to believe something or that you believe something that is, in fact, a lie.
Another favorable dream symbol related to money and wealth is bird poop. It is widely believed that if a bird poops on you in a dream, you can expect unexpected money. Conversely, eating dog poop is a sign of false friends or betrayal. This is because the dog is a symbol of friendship and loyalty. A bird, on the other hand, represents freedom, and bird poop is, therefore, a symbol of financial freedom.
If you dream of pooping in the toilet, I would see it more as a sign that you are getting rid of or need to get rid of something that no longer serves you. Dreams about poop everywhere symbolize positive changes for the better, financial freedom, or getting rid of a burden like debt.
