“The leech has two daughters. ‘Give! Give!’ they cry. There are three things that are never satisfied, four that never say, ‘Enough!’: the grave, the barren womb, land, which is never satisfied with water, and fire, which never says, ‘Enough!’ This excerpt is from the book of Proverbs where we are taught the value of contentment.
How do we interpret these lines? How do we address insatiability through these words? How exactly does this relate to the biblical meaning of leeches in dreams?

Reasons why you dream of leeches
- You will be facing unfortunate events where your enemies have the upper hand.
Unlike the other usual parasites, you cannot feel a leech attaching to your body. To have leeches appear in your dream usually signifies a user in your life. There could be someone who’s taking advantage of you and your kindness.
This person could pose as a good friend to you, and even lend his/her ears while you confide to him/her… or at least he/she is pretending to do so.
With you remaining oblivious to the situation, he/she clearly holds the upper hand. Dreams about leeches remind us to choose the people we trust and never give more than what you have.
- Disappointments are coming along your way.
You could be experiencing a downfall ahead. It could be a misunderstanding with your friend, an argument with your partner, or some setbacks at work. This is because you fail to see the good in any situation.
You opt the negative side rather than looking at the brighter one. Leeches are creatures that suck the blood from the host they attach themselves into.
For spirit leeches, what they suck are their target’s energy and passion, and at times hope, confidence, and optimism.
They say “Believe and you are already halfway there.” When you no longer have those attributes mentioned above, you will no longer believe in anything. And from there, you already are disappointed…more than you should actually be.
- Be aware of those who lend money at interest.
We all have our bad days and no one will judge you if you are tempted to get some load to aid your financial status.
However, dreaming of leeches could be a warning of a bad lender, or a bad loan. You could be getting yourself into a trap – a much more complicated financial state.
Before you finally decide on getting that loan, be sure first to have everything thought of and calculated… or you might just be jumping out of the frying pan and straight into the fire.
- It is time to take better care of your health.
As mentioned, leeches are parasites. They suck blood, and consequently… the life out of you. To dream of leeches might be a gentle note for you to take better care of your health.
If you are experiencing symptoms that are not usually normal, now may be the time to have yourself checked. We live in a busy world today where we are deprived of the time for sleep, relaxation, enjoyment, and even just eating.
The society is so fast-paced that we just have to catch up, not to mention the workload that is just up ahead.
Ever heard of the saying “Health is wealth.”? Don’t let it get to the point where you’d have to only agree after experiencing firsthand.
- You are in a state of despondency and discontentment.
You could be in a current state of unhappiness. This isn’t like the usual sadness where crying would make that feeling go away. It is much more complicated than that.
You feel like you want to get away from something, or maybe even everything. You just don’t feel fulfilled with what you have and what you’re doing.
Maybe a break is not so bad, after all these emotions you’ve been feeling? Again, health is priority – not just physical but also psychological and emotional.
When you no longer feel happy, it’s always a good call to pause, take things slowly, listen to your heart, and respond to it.
Common scenarios of leeches in dreams
You see leeches in your dream.
Leeches represent negative thoughts and emotions about a particular thing, person, or situation in your waking life that has seemed to suck the life out of you.
You could be in a state where you’d want to separate from this life-sucking event. It could even be a habit that no longer serves you well. If you feel this way, then by all means do something to get that life and passion back.
You dream of having leeches applied to you in a medicinal way.
This interpretation could be quite confusing. Leeches in real life are actually used for medicinal purposes.
If the leech in your dream is used for healing reasons, it could be a representation of the negativity eliminated from your life. However, alternatively, some say it could be an indication of an illness in your family.
You see your own body covered with leech.
Seeing leeches covering your body connotes unhappiness of your physical appearance and the guilt that you feel about not doing anything about it. You feel like you deserve some “me time” and pampering but haven’t really taken time to do so.
You are being/have been bitten by a leech.
A dream of having bitten by a leech foretells danger. You must proceed with caution. It is recommended that when venturing something new, take little steps. By doing so…no matter how slowly you go, you will still have better chances of going far.
You see a leech/leeches coming out of someone’s nostrils.
A dream of leeches coming out of a person’s nostrils could be an indication of abortion. Check on yourself, your partner, or the people close to you.
Have this open communication with your loved ones to avoid further complications and situations as such.
Biblical meaning of leeches in dreams appear to bring just about nothing but negativity, just like how it does in real life.
Don’t get too affected though. Leeches are removed through fire. When you feel life draining out of you, look for that warmth and that spirit that bring you once again that positive energy that you once have.
And now that you are aware of these, never let yourself be a victim of leeches and lose that warmth again.
