An outline of your goals and plans for the future.
The patterns of your life, the image shown being your conception of what you have built thus far, or that which you hope to build.
Directional guidance for knowing how to proceed with a specific project or concern. Look to the rest of the dream for details that delineate this further, like any symbol key that appears on the blueprints.
C G Jung began studying archetypes and dividing function into thinking, feeling, sensation and intuition. Following various work by his pupils, it became possible to build up a type of ‘map’ of the interaction between all of these functions and to discover where one’s own distortions occur. Each function has a ‘positive’ and ‘negative’ quality which is perhaps better described as ‘greater’ and ‘lesser’. Each of the masculine and feminine sides of the personality has these four functions, thus there are 64 (8 x 8) interactions possible. Where a distortion has occurred, we tend to project onto those around us the archetype with which we have most difficulty (often the Shadow). Consequently there will be a tendency to repeat situations over and over (e.g. the woman who continually finds herself in close relationships with a father-figure type, or the man who continuallv finds himself at odds with women executives) until we learn how to cope with and understand our distortion.
The obverse of this is that, with awareness, one is able to accept other’s projections onto oneself without being affected bv them. Perfect balance would be achieved by using all aspects of the personality as shown below. Kindly Father and Mother are self explanatory. Ogre represents masculine anger used negatively and Destructive Mother may be wilfully destructive, or simply the smothering type that is the mother who prevents the adequate growth of her children. Youth and Princess are the more gentle, fun-loving aspects of the personality while Tramp is the eternal wanderer and Siren is the seductress or sexually active part of femininity. Hero is the self- sufficient Messianic part of the personality, while Amazon is the ‘self-sufficient’ female the efficient business woman type. Villain is the masculine part of the self who uses power for his own ends, while Competitor is die typical ‘women’s libber’ who feels that she has 110 need for men. Priest and Priestess are the powers of intuition used for the ‘greater good’, while Sorcerer uses inner power totally dispassionately and Witch uses that same power rather more emotionally and perhaps negatively.
2- More specifically the feminine archetypes arc:
This is the conventional picture of the caring mother figure, forgiving transgression and always understanding. Because much has been made of this side of femininity, until recently it was very easy to overdevelop this aspect at the expense of other sides of the personality. Destructive Mother This woman may be the ‘smothermother’ type or the frankly destructive, prohibitive mother. Often it is this aspect who either actively prevents or because of her effect on the dreamer causes difficulty in other relationships. Princess The fun-loving, innocent childlike aspect of femininity. She is totally spontaneous, but at the same time has a subjective approach to other people. Siren This type is the seductress, the sexually and sensually aware woman who still has a sense of her own importance. In dreams she often appears in historic, flowing garments as though to highlight the erotic image.
The self-sufficient woman who feels she docs not need the male: often becomes the career woman. She enjoys the cut and thrust of intellectual sparring. Competitor - She is the woman who competes with all and sundry both men and women - in an effort to prove that she is able to control her own life. Priestess - This is the highly intuitive woman who has learnt to control the flow of information and use it for the common good. She is totally at home within the inner world.
The intuitive woman using her energy to attain her own perceived ends. She is subjective in her judgement and therefore loses her discernment.
The masculine archetypes are: Kindly Father This side of the masculine is the conventional kindly father figure who is capablc of looking after the child in us. but equally of being firm and fair. Ogre This represents the angry; overbearing, aggressive and frightening masculine figure. Often this image has arisen because of the original relationship the dreamer had with their father or father figure.
The fun-loving, curious aspect of the masculine is both sensitive and creative. This is the ‘Peter Pan’ figure who has never grown up.
This is the real freedom lover, the wanderer, the gypsy. He owes no allegiance to anyone and is interested only in what lies around the next corner. Hero The hero is the man who has clcctcd to undertake his own journey of exploration. He is able to consider options and decide his next move. Often he appears as the Messianic figure in dreams. He will rescue the damsel in distress, but only as part of his growth proccss.
The villain is completely selfishly involved, not caring who he tramples on in his own search. He is often the aspect of masculinity women first meet in everyday relationships, so can remain in dream images as a threatening figure if she has not come to terms with his selfishness.
The intuitive man is the one who recognises and understands the power of his own intuition, but who usually uses it in the services of his god or gods. He may appear in dreams as the Shaman or Pagan priest.
This is the man who uses discernment in a totallv dis- passionate way for neither good nor evil, but simply because he enjoys the use of power. In his more negative aspect he is the Trickster or Master of unexpected change.

A space with limited access over which someone or something has control. Consider the type of zone portrayed.
For example, a radioactive region might imply a situation that’s way too hot to approach right now. Conversely, approaching an end zone in your dream reflects the successful undertaking of a task, or a completion on the horizon.... zone dream meaning

Right is a beneficial direction (note the term righteous), generally revealing positive actions and motivations.
Movement upward may be a type of ascension dream that shows your personal progress, hopes, and improvement.
Downward movement may show dissension, fatality, or pessimism that leads to feeling literally “down.” Alternatively, this can signify a new focus on your internal nature—an exploration that often proves very useful to personal growth.
When two directions are featured at the same time, this symbolizes harmony and balance between opposites (see Cross). Conversely, this can also indicate an internal tug of war between two facets of your being.
Being shown directions by a compass or a map reveals feelings of being somewhat lost or out of place in your current situation (see Blueprints, Schematics).
Each direction on a compass has slightly different meanings. North is cool, denoting frozen movement and frosty emotions. East is the point of the rising .raw, bringing hope and a new beginning. South is for fire, which can warm, energize, or consume depending on its potency, and West is the water or emotional center where fountains of creativity or floods of feeling may originate.... directions dream meaning
The call of a hospital emergency is known as a “code blue.” Before a brochure or magazine page is printed, the early version used to finalize the design and layout is known as the “blue line.” When blood circulation diminishes due to a drop in body temperature, the lips will turn blue and communication will be hindered. These are but a few examples that may not relate to a specific image; however, when the color blue is prominent in your dream, incorporate issues of communication into your interpretation.
(See Colors.)... blue dream meaning
Dreaming Lens: Dreaming in color is often viewed as a particular phenomenon that sets a dream apart from others you have. There is an implication here that if a memorable dream is thought of as vibrantly filled with color, other dreams must be in black and white by comparison. However, all dreams are likely to be experienced with various intensities of color and the memory of vibrant color is just one more way the unconscious is speaking to you.
This section deals specifically with the general meaning of colors as universally accepted in reference to the spectrum of visible white light. Use this information to add texture to the meaning of a symbol if a specific color was indicated in your memory of a dream. This can refer to anything, from the quality of light to the color of an object.
Personal Focus: Light is experienced as white, but if refracted into separate wave lengths, the naked eye can perceive the seven distinct bands of color that make it up. Seven is an important number in numerology, as it represents spirituality and higher thought. One of the applications of this significance is the chakras, or energy points on the body that corresponds to a gland in the endocrine system. By aligning the colors of the spectrum and the seven chakras, the foundational and universal meaning to colors is generated.
This is only a starting place, as many permutations and personal associations will alter the meaning of colors as you interpret your dreams. However, consider the logic of even some of those permutations. For example, green is the color of the heart center, but is also associated with jealousy or being green with envy. Though these are very different emotions, love and jealousy are both products of the heart. Yellow represents the emotions, but has come to signal caution in the Western world. Again, very different life experiences actually have the same origins when examined closely. It is in paying attention to our gut feelings that we are made aware of when to exhibit caution. The following guide is meant as a foundation and starting place for symbolic interpretation.
For specifics on the seven spectrum colors, see below:
1. Red Base of spine Security, grounding Testicles
2. Orange Genitals Sexuality/creativity Ovaries
3. Yellow Belly Feelings Adrenal gland
4. Green Heart Love/healing/center Thymus gland
5. Blue Throat Communication Thyroid gland
6. Indigo Third eye Intuition Pineal/pituitary
7. Violet Top of head Spirituality Above the body
Red: The first color of the spectrum, red is associated with security and grounding. This energy is connected with the base of the spine and the testicles in men. Often thought of as a color of passion, red aligns with aggression and sexual expression in the masculine principle. We stop at red lights, creating security for ourselves by avoiding the danger of oncoming traffic. Blood is the essence of life force itself and, therefore, related to being grounded in our physical body.
Orange: The next color of the spectrum corresponds to the area near the ovaries in woman and the lower belly in men. Orange is also related to sexuality, but through the feminine principle of intimacy and transformation. It is the color most associated with creativity.
Yellow: Yellow is the color of emotions and gut feelings and is appropriately centered in the solar plexus, creating a relationship with this area of the body and the color of the Sun. This is where we experience our feelings and the rapid shift from one state to another. Associated with the adrenal gland, yellow connects to adrenaline, the chemical manufactured by the brain that creates anxiety, sudden bursts of energy, and the fight-or-flight response. This is reflected in the use of yellow to indicate caution in signage and traffic management. Of course, many emotional states are very pleasant, which is embodied by our experience of sunlight as warm and comforting. This chakra is also associated with self-worth and how one relates in the world.
Green: Green is the color of the heart center, which can be confusing due to the representation of the heart as red, made especially prominent in Western culture with Valentine’s Day. However, green is the central color of the spectrum and the heart is considered the center of both our physical and our emotional bodies. This connects the color green to love, healing, and all matters of the heart. It may be easier to understand the meaning of this color if you consider the Earth and Mother Nature’s love affair with the color green. Keeping with traffic signal analogies, if you go when the light is green, that is like following your heart’s desire to move forward. When the heart is soured by hurt, green can turn to the menace of envy.
Blue: Blue is the color of communication and connects to the body through the throat and the thyroid gland. There is a connection between our metabolic activity, which is regulated by the thyroid, and the effectiveness of our communication. Through our voice, we communicate with others, but it is through our energy levels that we commune with our immediate environments. Other communication concepts associated with this color are the blueprints that communicate the structure of something not yet created. The call of a hospital emergency is known as a Code Blue. Before a brochure or magazine page is printed, the early version used to finalize the design and layout is known as the blue line. When blood circulation diminishes due to a drop in body temperature, the lips will turn blue and communication is hindered. These are but a few examples that may not relate to a specific image; however, when the color blue is prominent in your dream, incorporate issues of communication into your interpretation.
Indigo: Indigo is an elusive color—many people would be hard pressed to describe it or identify it upon sight. Since intuition shares some of these same indefinable characteristics, it is ironic that the two are linked. Somewhere between blue and violet, indigo is the sixth color of the spectrum and vibrates with what is known as the third eye, the point behind the forehead that is the seat of inner vision. The pineal and pituitary glands correlate with this color, which contains yet another irony: the first regulates all of our body’s rhythmic cycles and the latter stimulates growth and incites the onset of puberty. They perform these functions at the right and perfect time, as if guided by intuition.
Violet: Violet is the final color of the spectrum and is considered the most spiritual. It is connected to the crown of the head and, therefore, not encumbered by the demands of the body. In this way, it is the vibration that is connected to us, but reaches upward into higher realms of energy. There are many examples of violet— more commonly referred to as purple—being associated with spirituality and high levels of consciousness. Merlin, the wizard from the King Arthur tales, is often depicted as wearing a purple hat; the Purple Heart represents ultimate bravery; and in Catholicism, during the holiday of Lent, all images of the Christ are covered with purple. People who meditate with discipline report seeing violet light as part of the trance experience.
Black: Thought of as the absence of color to some, in the world of physics, black is actually the presence of all colors in the object that embodies it. It is the color that absorbs the most light, retains heat and is associated with death as it is the opposite of life affirming white. As the color of mourning, black clothing represents the social construct of receiving consolation. When we are in mourning, we are surrounded by people who share in our sadness. In the same way that a black shirt will absorb all wavelengths of sunlight, a person in mourning wears black in order to absorb the light from those who surround them. In the world of fashion, black has a connotation of being trendy and sophisticated. Nighttime is when blackness reigns, bringing secrecy and the ability to hide into this color’s symbolic meaning.
White: Purity and wholeness is represented by white, as this is the unification of all the colors of light that are visible to the human eye. For some, white is the color of highest spirituality. For others it connects to the perfection that arises out of the absence of contamination as in virginity and chastity. An object that appears white reflects the light back outward, absorbing none of the individual colors of the spectrum. It is in this concept of reflecting the light that shines onto you back out into the world that embodies the high consciousness associated with the color white.... colors dream meaning
