I can’t find some older dream threads so here’s a newer one for us.
My dream last night. There’s a creek by our house but in the dream it was a river. I couldn’t find my son. At some point I realized that my had crossed that river without my knowledge and now was somewhere in the hills with a friend I thought. In reality I live in a really gentle landscape but in the dream it was darker and more brutal. I even looked on the app on my phone because I can track him and it didn’t show where he was. For some reason I could not cross the river, but I saw his dog swimming in it lol. I understood it as a type of boundary, that it was “safe” on the side where we lived. In the dream I felt panic and pain.
This was really powerful for me. The symbolism of crossing a river is pretty archetypal in terms of initiation. Crossing the river Styx right? He is almost 17. I talk to him a lot about initiations into manhood, how there’s processes that I as a woman have not been through. I just pray to his guides that they show him the way while he’s in the wilderness. I wonder who the friend was in the dream.
That would have hit me hard @Libra-noir
It hit me hard, just reading it. Our boys go out in the wild - it's vicious, at least it was for me.
Hopefully he'll be happy. That's the biggest thing.
I was driving on a busy street in the town I grew up. I made a sudden turn, and was going too fast so I was trying to get the car under control. All of a sudden, I can’t see. Everything is black, but I’m still driving and now I’m freaking out, hoping I don’t hit anyone or anything. I don’t. My vision comes back after what feels like forever and I’m in a different place. Like, a different town, different street. A lot more nature here, versus the busy city street I was previously driving on. There are people on the side of the road, I swerve a little because they were right there as soon as my vision comes back. Now, I’m driving on a rocky uneven red rock hiking/climbing trail. Not for cars. I’m bumping along, freaking out again because I don’t want to crash, don’t want to ruin my car, when I come to a particularly uneven point and my car tips forward and rolls sideways. I fear my head will be crushed. But I’m okay, the car rights itself, and my legs are sticking out of the bottom, Flintstones style. And I’m carrying the car around me, holding it up like the skirt on a dress. But I’m freaking out, rattled. I see that while I’m still on the red rocks, there’s a manicured neighborhood in front of me. I see a young man walk by, and I ask for help. He says, um, sure. Not mean, willing, but more like he thinks I look like I don’t need help. I realize, well, I’m wearing a car like a dress and getting down a few feet off some rocks will be a problem? So I say, well, spot me. So he stands there, watching as I climb down. I make it, thank him, and he leaves.
Amidst the sudden turns, blindness, unknown precarious landscapes, I worry a lot but I’m okay. And I’m a lot more capable, stronger than I thought.
I've been dreaming quite intensely lately, mainly symbolic dreams, but last night's/this morning's were different. In the first one, I was at home with my family, and I just blurted out (neighbour's name)'s funeral will be on Friday the 5th. Now, my neighbour does currently have cancer and is due treatment very soon, but he is getting on a bit. I must point out that he seems in good health, despite his cancer.
In the second one, I was actually half asleep/coming round and all I could see was grey, and I randomly said the word/name Baphomet. I was then fully awake, and all I could think was Baphomet. I don't think these dreams were connected and I wasn't scared, but the first thing I did when I got up was to check the calendar for the next Friday 5th, which is next January. Both these dreams have been playing on my mind, mainly due to how direct they were, and not abstract like my dreams usually are. I don't want to freak myself out, and I haven't told my partner of the neighbour dream yet, and I'm wondering if anyone can throw out any ideas? Is there some symbolism I'm overlooking?
I dreamed that I moved into a new place, but it wasn't at all what I wanted nor expected. I kept thinking to myself "If I would've just waited, I would've gotten that place that I initially wanted." The place that I had moved into in my dream was in a somewhat bad area, and there were squatters there when I moved in. And I kept worrying about my stuff getting stolen, thinking "I should've just waited. Why didn't I get the other place?"
In real life, I've been saving up to move to a new place, and I've been going back and forth between just leaving or waiting until December when I have more money saved and I would have my final tattoo session of the year (which costs a lot of money). I'm trying not to be impatient, but I'm just ready to get on with my life. So I guess the dream is telling me to just be patient and I may get what I want instead of rushing and ending up in a bad spot.
Being patient all the time can be so hard though especially when one is fed up.
I had a dream last night that my mom died. My stepbrother (who I do not respect) called me and told me in the middle of the night. I was really sad, sorrowful. I somehow understood that she died peacefully in her sleep. I somehow also understood that she died alone and I think that’s the main reason I was sad. Then it was one of those things where I dreamt that I woke up and was telling someone about this dream.
I pull a card from this particular oracle deck for dream work. The card was Soul Tribe.
Im considering the fact that this could be an archetypal dream. That doesn’t mean that it’s irrelevant to my relationship with my mother or separate but I wonder if that’s an angle to be explored alongside my actual relationship with her (which is strained and painful for me).
Anyone have thoughts? Also- Pluto is squaring my Moon.
