A moth is not very attractive, desirable, or known for many positive attributes. There is the story of a moth being attracted to the flame, which got to close to the flame and was destroyed. The moth in your dream may be pointing out a personal weakness or may be bringing to light a deception in your life. It could be suggesting that you are being lead to a place where you will be hurt unless you recognize the danger. Since dreams are very rarely literal, the danger could be emotional or psychological, not necessarily physical.
