Frogs like the butterfly are considered highly symbolic in dreams that bring us luck and transformation. Dream symbols are often shown metaphorically related to aspects of our life. The frog becomes a powerful omen that implies a major change or change in your life.
What makes the frog so special is its ability to transform from a tadpole in water to a frog on land. Frogs go through a four-stage metamorphosis process, possibly hinting at stages in their life at this time.
The tadpole, like the caterpillar, has no idea what it is going to become, this is another clue that what is happening could be unconscious. Frogs also have a unique ability to live on land and water - hinting at the emotional side of the dreamer.
In mythology and literature frogs are often associated with life, fertility, and rebirth, suggesting that transformation is unfolding now. They have gotten a bad rap for being ugly, clumsy, and rude; however, in dreams this may be very far from the truth.
The ancient Egyptians understood that the frog was a very powerful symbol and used the face of Hequt - the God of fertility. This is why frogs are often associated with rebirth in dreams.
Depending on the context of how the frog is shown in the dream can alter the meaning. A frog can also be associated with dirt and fear of sexuality. Frogs sometimes emerge more often with young girls related to fear and disgust.

- jumping forward
The frog and personal transformation
In general, when a frog jumps in your dreams they bring you an important message. The life cycle from a tadpole to a frog during their 12-week metamorphosis stage occurs in water, as they need it to survive.
Remember the story of the princess kissing an ugly frog who evidently turns into a handsome prince. Your dream is related to the dark or repressed unconscious features that transform within you.
