Dream Interpretation Cardinal | Dream Meanings


If a cardinal appears in your dream, it represents a sense of vitality and happiness. You feel as if you could accomplish anything.

The Element Encyclopedia | Theresa Cheung

An ecclesiastical cardinal seen in all his colorful glory follows the ancient rule that high- ranking churchmen are harbingers of unpleasant news; but on the other hand, a bird of this variety promises family harmony and/or business expansion, plus happy social events ahead.

The Complete Guide to Interpreting Your Dreams | Stearn Robinson - Tom Corbett

It is unlucky to dream you see a cardinal in his robes. You will meet such misfortunes as will necessitate your removal to distant or foreign lands to begin anew your ruined fortune.

For a woman to dream this is a sign of her downfall through false promises.

If priest or preacher is a spiritual adviser and his services are supposed to be needed, especially in the hour of temptation, then we find ourselves dreaming of him as a warning against approaching evil.

Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation | Gustavus Hindman Miller

Dreams of the high ranking church official symbolize connection and access to your higher wisdom and spiritual authority.

If the dream is about the bird it foretells a colorful, vital and joyful experience is right around the corner. See Bird.

A symbol of importance or high rank

Christian Dream Symbols | Tyler Wolfe

The cardinal’s bright red rohe brings the fire of passion to liberate sexual expression. Since cardinals are monogamous, the appearance of the bird may summon you to take flight with the expression of sexual feelings within a committed relationship. It may also be a reminder that your sexuality is innocent, since the cardinal is the liberator of wounds and fears concerning sexual expression.

Four

(see also Mandalas)

Four is an ancient symbol of completeness; wholeness. (The four comers of the earth, the four cardinal points, the four winds all, in primitive traditions, represent the whole of reality. So does a four-sided figure. The cross, too, extending in all four directions, is an ancient - pre-Christian - symbol of totality. Such figures, along with a four- petalled flower or four-lobed leaf, are mandalas, representing wholeness.)

According to Jung, consciousness has four functions: thinking, intuition, feeling and sensation. Usually, however, at least one of these and possibly three are undeveloped and are therefore still totally or partially unconscious. Personal fullness can be achieved only by lifting these functions out of unconsciousness and integrating them into consciousness.

Multiples of four - eight, sixteen and so on - may have the same symbolic meaning as four. To see such a symbol in your dream does not mean you have achieved personal wholeness; rather, your dream may be pointing out, by contrast, your lack of wholeness.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols

Cross

The cross is a symbol present in all cultures, therefore, it has multiple references. There are many types and each of them refers to its own meaning. For example, the Greek cross (with four arms of equal length) expressed wholeness; Native Americans used to draw crosses to represent the partition of the universe. For Christians, it means suffering, martyrdom, death, and sacrifice. In general, you can see, in its most simple representation, the four cardinal points and the image of the human body with arms outstretched. In the first case, you should interpret this dream as the need to make a decision on an issue makes you worried. However, if you link the cross to the human body this symbol suggests that you need to restore balance, as well as being consistent with yourself.

From a mystical point of view, the cross symbolizes the division nature in four sets: four seasons, four directions, four elements... Formerly, the cross contained the ideal human body.

It is also associated with the power of arboreal life.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

Fountain

In the earthly paradise, four rivers start from the center—from the foot of the Tree of Life—and are separated according to the four directions marked by the cardinal points. Consequently, they spring from the same source, which symbolizes the center and origin of any activity. Jung associated the fountain to the source of inner life and spiritual energy. Also, he related it to the “country of childhood” in the unconscious directions are received, and stated that the need of the fountain mainly arises when vital impulses are inhibited. In oneiric terms, dreams in which fountains are present highlight a desire for regeneration and purification. Additionally, its waters’ quality reveal the status of your emotional relationships. So, if you drink from clear water fountain it indicates that you will satisfy physical, spiritual, or emotional needs; you will also achieve success. But if the fountain is dry or its waters are murky your love is withering. (See WATER)

This dream foretells an upcoming happy and satisfactory period.

If the fountain is dry, however, it predicts problems.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

Noon

Just as midnight is the peak of our darkest aspects, noon symbolizes the peak of our brightest part, that is, of our virtues. Therefore, the appearance of a bright midday in a dream indicates you are in a moment of great personal growth. (See ANGELS, GOD, LIGHT, TEACHER, and MARRIAGE) North North symbolizes the way, orientation, that which gives our lives direction. Its presence in dreams should make you reflect on what you really want. However, this cardinal point also represents cold and darkness, since the sun never passes to the north.

Spiritual Authority

Priests, rabbis, popes, cardinals, priestesses, lamas, gurus, yogis, Jedi knights, monks, mullahs, nuns and curates are all symbols of spiritual authority in dreams and in some cases they represent your own spiritual wisdom. The key to interpreting their appearance in a dream is the message or feeling they convey to you.

If you were uneasy because the message was an unwelcome reminder of a duty you have neglected, your dreaming mind may be urging you to take positive action that will transform your spiritual well-being. Such figures may also stand for parental disapproval or advice; perhaps you are yearning for some moral certainties and direction in your waking life. According to ancient dream-lore, any dream concerning a priest is a fortunate one. In particular, it means the end of a quarrel.... The Element Encyclopedia
