View Full Version : Dream interpretation? Awesome revelation or.....
02-03-2008, 10:15 AM
I've seen numerous interpretations of reoccuring themes in dreams such as love, fear and other basic human emotions and it seems to me that most of said interpretations differ per person.
This is why I am wondering if there is truth in the interpreting of dreams or if it's just non-sense.
Might these different opinions be based on the fact that in fact each dream is unique, and one should take heed to try and interpret the entire dream, not just certain emotions or occurrances that occur?
What do the people of astrologyweekly.com think about this subject?
Ever had any dreams and wonder what they might mean?
Is there a link between certain dreams and perhaps your natal chart?

The conventional wisdom in Astrology is that the 8th House has to do with dreams and the message(s) contained in them.
Astrologers and Psychics vary greatly in their skill and talent in successfully interpreting dreams; some people are particularly talented in dream interpretation and many others are correct only on occasion.
The Natal Chart is telling regarding either that a certain individual has talent in dream interpretation or that a given person is very likely to have precognitive dreams or dreams of significance.
If we were to attempt to use Astrology to interpret a dream, a Horary Chart cast to the time and place that the dream occurred would be the method of choice to do so. As I myself use Progressed Charts a great deal, these charts sometimes offer a great deal of insight about the mental state of a Client along with the tendency to dream or what the nature of the dreams might be. Other times, I've found it very difficult to make sense of dreams using Astrology.
Dreams can often be recalled and understood clearly with Professional Hypnosis. But again, individuals have varying experiences with hypnotherapy and some cannot successfully experience hypnosis for themselves.
I myself have taught guided meditation and I've taken individuals on "vision quests" to understand dreams, etc. I have sometimes been able to mentally project myself into someone else's dream experience in an attempt to understand what they were dreaming about and what the dream was trying to tell them. I never do this without first obtaining the individual's permission.

Hello you both! I feel that dreams are strongly connected with the state of mind the person is in in the period he or she have strong dreams. I am talking now of dreams that really can be remembered and either gave you a wonderful feeling or scared you to death or anything else strange about it but made a huge impression on it. Dreams that days later you are still thinking of. Not those small images which make no impression. I think that that is just the brain trying to bring balance after a hard days work.
But say you are in a real situation, like divorce or being completely absorbed in getting a child, thinking about your future very strongly because you have to take a decision, wanting to set up a business or express yourself creatively but dont know how, then a dream can give you a clue as to which things you are afraid of or blocking you. Or the dream shows what is on your mind. As an example, my partner and I one evening talked about the fact that he has such trouble talking, or rather, have them talk openly about their problems with him. I told him that he should just ask them questions. He said that they probably would not like that, too private. I said NO, if you never ask anything they think you are not interested in them etc.etc. He was really pondering on how to approach them, what to do etc.
That night he dreams of mobile phones passing him by in a stream of water and him trying to catch them. He was in a car or a bus, dont remember exactly and came to a point where the road split up. He did not know which way to go. So you see, the mobile phones clearly make you think of communication. Water is emotions, it all fitted in really well with his state of mind at that moment. What to do, how to reach these girls emotionally etc.
So I also think that each dream, even if all of them involve water or climbing stairs or windows with a view or animals, whatever, cannot really mean exactly the same thing to everyone. A few basic interpretations, sure, like water =emotions, buildings = your body or your inner life, but you must see them in the context of the circumstances the person is living in at that moment. I dont think interpreting dreams is nonsense, I think they are a tool to figure out what is bothering you, especially recurring dreams (like the one's where you dont pass your exam, a classical one, nothing to do with school but all to do with fears of failure and insecurity).
If I have a dream I cannot forget for a while I always try to figure out what it wants to tell me. It is fascinating and I wished I would know more about it.
