Dreaming of a squirrel means that you are involved in a fruitless relationship or a business project that will fail to bring you profits. Squirrels in dreams suggest that you are hoarding something or that you must learn to let go of a person or situation in your waking life.
Squirrels can also suggest that you will find new friends and have a happy home.
If you dream that you are feeding a squirrel, you will attain success and comfort through hard work and prudence. If you see squirrels in trees, this is a warning that you will face an embarrassing situation in the near future.
The dream squirrel is associated with efficiency and with prudently storing things for future use, planning for the future, or even hiding something.
The squirrel in your dream may symbolize someone in your waking life who is unpredictable and skittish – or “squirrelly.”
