The aquarium is a pretty cheerful symbol that represents happiness, love, favorable changes and the birth of children. But that can be interpreted ambiguously, depending on the circumstances of your dream. If the fish in the aquarium are very beautiful, for young women it is a sign of impending marriage. And the groom will be an influential and rich person. However, if you dream of a broken aquarium it represents trouble and worries.
Often an aquarium with fish swimming gracefully and calmly symbolizes rest and peace. This means you can relax and enjoy a peaceful life. If the water is muddy, it hints at troubles in the relationship. A general picture of an aquarium in a dream world, such as one that is devoid of certain details or characteristics, means that your financial situation will improve significantly.
