Dream Answer 319: When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Get Going

Newts have the unusual ability to regenerate eyes, intestines, hearts, spinal cords and jaws. Lizards are reptiles that are quick to avoid their many enemies and predators and have amazing defenses. Some lizards, to escape a predator who has them in their clenches, can actually separate their tail from their body with the tail still having movability to distract the predator so that they can get away. That lizard will later regenerate the tail.

Animals represent our instincts. Both newts and lizards negotiate and travel in or on water (emotions) and land (conscious thinking). Newts and lizards would represent the part of the person that has adaptive defenses that are regenerative and quick in many different kinds of situations.

Both would usually be a good sign in a dream. Newts probably lean toward generating or regenerating your get up and go, while lizards probably go more with being able to adapt to and defend yourself in difficult circumstances. It is interesting that during the early stages of development a fetus comes very close to looking like an amphibian.
