What does it mean to dream of koi fishes?
Koi generally are ornamental fish whose only purpose is to be admired for their beauty. Dreams represent the feelings of the dreamer. So this dream might express the dreamer's feeling of being valued only for his/her appearance rather than being respected as a full person.

Koi jump out of the water for a variety of reasons. They may just be playing and having fun or they may be being chased by another fish. Sometimes koi will jump out of the… water to get oxygen, especially if the tank or pond has poor water quality.
No it means good luck on your struggles
Koi fish are a symbol of good fortune. The direction they are swimming has to do with the wearer's personality. Upstream means that one has an outgoing personality, whereas do…wnstream symbolizes more introverted. Cherry blossoms symbolize life, and how it is ever changing. When done properly, there will be blossoms of varying sizes, and varying stages of life, from tiny buds to full blossoms. There will also be petals floating in the wind, symbolizing death, whereas the buds symbolize new life.
Well koi fish symbolise strength and courage, and the legend and myth behind the koi fish is that it swims upstream to turn into a dragon. The Dragon symbolises the end of a j…ourney and overcoming the obstacle you faced. Therefore a Koi swimming upstream symbolises faceing a problem and being on a quest to put an end to it. A Koi swimming downstream symbolises that it has allready overcome the problem, people often get this to symbolise the end of an ordeal.
It means peace and harmony

Both the moon and the koi have rich varieties of symbolic meaning, so the dreamer of this specific dream will need to discern how the metaphor in this dream applies to his/her… life. > Among other things, the koi represents determination and strength, particularly the ability to "go against the flow," that is, to maintain personal integrity even against popular opposition. In Japan, the koi is associated with masculine traits, and often appears during Boys Day celebrations. > The moon is also viewed as a masculine force in Japanese mythology, in contrast to Western cultures that view the moon as feminine. Because the moon has no light of its own, but reflects only the light of the sun, it is considered subtle and tends to represent spiritual or mystical qualities. > The image formed by the moon and koi seems to have a strong masculine force, combining subtlety and spirituality with determination and and strength. (That brings to mind the Asian martial arts.) > The dreamer should keep in mind that any dream is specific to the dreamer, so the Asian or Japanese associations apply to this particular dream only in so far as the symbols are meaningful to this individual dreamer. If the Asian or Japanese associations are irrelevant, the moon would represent the Divine Feminine (Mother Nature) while the koi might denote fluid grace and beauty. The subtle mystical and spiritual qualities would remain. > Other elements in the dream might be significant, such as whether the fish are swimming around the moon in a clockwise (positive, conventional, growing) direction or counterclockwise (negative, unconventional, diminishing.) The color of the koi, the moon's phase (full, waning, waxing) and the overall emotional tone of the dream should also be considered.
This is an unusual dream that might have a unique significance for this particular dreamer. The star fish could be a symbol that points toward two separate directions or world…s. As a "star" it reflects the heavens, yet as a "fish" (sea creature) it reflects the depth of the ocean. Certain star fish live in tidal pools, straddling the boundaries of both land and sea, sometimes exposed to air, sometimes immersed in water. To the casual observer, star fish appear immobile and barely alive, yet they are perfectly capable of moving about on rocks, sand and the sea floor. Putting all this together, a dream of a star fish might illustrate the dreamer's effort to live in two different worlds, or perhaps the dreamer's feeling as if he/she is both native and stranger in two separate realms.
Fish symbolizes Pisces and water for Aquarius. In the Mayan calendar, we've just come out of the age of Pisces and we are now at the dawn of the Aquarian age. It means you a…re in a momentary shift, perhaps you're in a cross-roads about your old beliefs that contradicts with your new belief or a discovery of new knowledge. This can be applied with other facets in your life, either you are finally realizing your true calling in life or have finally said farewell to some constants in your life (a break in the family like divorce).
The dream illustrates a common expression to describe the dreamer's emotions: "a fish out of water" is a metaphor for someone who is in a place, occupation, or social group wh…ere they do not belong. The dreamer feels that she/he does not fit in a current situation.
Dreams communicate through symbols that have special significance to the person experiencing the dream. "Fish" and "Water" are symbols than would have very different meaning… to different individuals. Sigmund Freud regarded both fish and water as relating to sexuality, while Carl Jung believed a fish he saw in a dream represented the Christian faith. it means that some one is pregnant in your family ....... as to a dream of fish relating to pregnancy, above: At the time the 2 cousins became pregnant, each relative in their family would have had some sort of dream, none of which having anything to do with the pregnancies.
The black koi fish is representative of the male gender, the sun and evil. Where the white is representative of the female gender, the moon and goodness
There are a number of meanings - Yin-Yang, Male/Female, Day/Night, Water/Fire, Sun/Moon. It all stems from philosophy of taoism.
I have an incomplete answer for this. I just got a tattoo of a koi fish that I designed (without the spot). I got it done in Japan and the tattoo artist decided to add it. He …explained to me that it when a koi fish gets older...something something...and that it was very japanese. I has something to do with the aging or wisdom of a koi fish.
While it is difficult to interpret "fish" dreams because there are so many possible symbolic meanings related to fish, this particular dream might focus on the tank and the en…dless, pointless motion of the fish. The dream suggests that the dreamer feels as if he/she is constantly swimming (moving, working) yet getting nowhere. It also suggests constant exposure, scrutiny, and vulnerability to criticism, as in the expression, "life in the fishbowl."
The koi fish swimming up stream means the person is currently in a battle or struggle and are still fighting obstacles but wont give up. They have overcome obstacles and h…ave now gained the strength they need to continue against the current. The koi fish swimming down stream means they don't yet posses the strength to make it against the obstacles to move towards success. They have already achieved their goals, overcoming their obstacles and no longer fighting the current.
