Salamanders are perhaps one of the stranger creatures to appear in dreams. Understanding what they may mean requires careful contemplation, for these creatures are nothing if not ambiguous. Fortunately, if you dream of a salamander, ambiguity is likely to be something rather familiar to you.
At the core of this ambiguity is the relationship salamanders have to both water and fire. Though they are an amphibian and live in and around water, they have been bestowed with a mythological connection to fire. It is suggested this belief stems from the fact that salamanders were sometimes seen in fires, likely because they were brought into houses unnoticed, hidden in logs where they lived, and only became visible once the wood started to burn. They also secrete a milky fluid from their bodies which was believed to protect them from the flames.
