Just as herons are often seen wading, a dream about a heron can convey the idea of being partially—but not fully—into an issue, dynamic, or situation, or trying something out, or doing something without full commitment or personal involvement. Dreaming of this animal can represent:
- Having too much of one of these qualities, or that you could benefit by being less this way
- Not having enough of one of these qualities, or that you could benefit by being more like this
- Someone or something in your real life with whom you associate one of these qualities (an event, situation, threat, etc.)
For more clues, pay attention to what the animal was doing or any particular characteristic that stood out.
