Dreams about lizards are connected to locations, people, relationships and sometimes even to financial situations.

To see a lizard in a dream
If you see a lizard in a dream that suggests that you will move. You are probably used to moving often in search of better life conditions, which enables you to get to know other cultures and take what you find useful from each one.

The smaller one would just kind of run around and the black one would come out from under the blanket, kinda scare me for a second but then I calmed down because I was like “Oh I’m dreaming it’s cool.” Then when I realized I was dreaming it would start over again.
