To dream of a platypus represents feelings about yourself or some area of your life that is noticeably casual about being unusual. Feelings about your self having to look weird and cause other people who constantly question you. Putting up with weird situations as though they normal. Not caring about what anyone else thinks no matter how weird or uncomfortable it feels. Behavior that is openly unconcerned with social acceptability.
Negatively, a platypus may be a sign that you are putting up with very unusual behavior that you don’t need to. Choosing to live with noticeably weird or uncomfortable social situations when you don’t have to. Doing something all the time that you feel will be laughed at or talked about behind your back.
Dreams of a platypus commonly appear with symbolism of a forest. This may reflect feelings about your unusual behavior being noticed by others while you hope for a way out of an uncomfortable situation.
Example: A man dreamed being in a room with a platypus. In waking waking life he had been asked by his boss to take an unusual temporary leave of absence from work in order to quell an office conflict. While taking time off he got other job offers, but was still curious about going back to his old job even though he knew his returning to the job would make him look unusual and possibly cause him to be laughed at.
Example 2: A man dreamed of going hiking with a platypus. In waking life he went hiking with his new wife and 3 step-children. The platypus most likely reflected his feelings about how unusual it looked and felt to have 3 step-children that weren’t his own all the time.
