They say that in dreams, EVERY character is you.
So say if you have a dream where you are dashing to warn someone of an impending invasion and that person won’t listen, you are the non-listener as well.
Even if if you dream of a lover, it’s that person’s archetype within you. It’s a fascinating way to look at a dream, especially when there is a conflict between the dream characters.
They say also that the definitions offered by dream dictionaries are but suggestions – it’s up to you to figure what various symbols translate to you in your own psyche.
Having said that, I am pretty sure that the Owl is a universal symbol of wisdom. Once i dreamed i was carrying around an owl in a cage with a black shroud over it, i wanted it with me at all times but did not want to look at it or hear any noise it might make. And yes, at the time i was being bimbonic and naive to the max.
Dreams are amazing, the “royal road to the subconscious” a la Freud.
Of course, there is NOTHING like a good Neptune transit to have lurid, lucid and just sensational dreams. The year Neptune conjoined my Aqua ascendent was just ridiculous. Night after night of intense dreams; a goddess manifesting in the corner of my bedroom, complete with lute & unicorn…another one that an Ancient Egyptian Empress was asleep/entombed in the room beneath me and that i had but to go downstairs to wake her, a dream that a gigantic raven was in bed with me, putting a ring on my finger.
I swear, Neptune transits will have you waking up every morning in w.t.f mode, wishing you had a Shaman on Speed Dial.
Thoughts? Sorry, we are talking about Neptune here so…Impressions?
