Rats Dream Meaning (see also Mice)
Psychological Meaning: Rats may represent unworthy thoughts and feelings that hide from the light of day and gnaw away at you inside. These may be feelings of guilt, envy avarice and so on or they may be of a sexual nature. They could represent the feelings you reject. In addition, you may have thoughts about wanting to harm others or perhaps you feel that somebody in your life is, in the words of James Cagney, a ‘dirty rat’.
Mystical Meaning: An enemy will try to harm you if you dream of rats. Some superstitions believe that rats contain the souls of men so their actions should be observed and acted upon.
