To dream about a sloth shows you are acting passively in a situation in your waking life.
Perhaps you need to be more assertive and make your presence known. You cannot take a backseat and disappear into the background on this one.
The sloth is often associated with gentleness, shyness, reluctance and lack of ambition. Consider whether any of these traits describe you and if you can change anything to turn around the negative attributes or embrace the positive ones more.
Sloths above all are considered to mean laziness- think about an aspect of your life in which you are being lazy- is there something that needs your immediate attention? Are you ignoring a solution to a problem because you don’t want to deal with it right now?
Perhaps you are feeling unmotivated and are looking for something or someone to help you get out of this rut. What motivated you before? It might be time to get this tool back out of the box and use it to inspire you again.
Dreams about sloths can represent a yearning for relaxation. Perhaps you are stressed at work or have too much going on at present and its overwhelming for you. You have had enough of constantly feeling this way.
The sloth might be a symbol for someone in your life- if they are close- perhaps you are coming on too strong and it is making this person take a backseat. Maybe you see the error of their ways and are invested in helping them to be less slothful.
If you feel let down by the world or a large number of people- you may dream about others being slothful because you were neglected by them when you needed them most.
More positively, a sloth could mean that you are a slow and steady person- you will get to where you want to but you never rush and always think about things and take your time.
