The Biblical patriarch Abraham who breaks with idolatry to seek enlightenment is a symbol of the importance of exploring the unfamiliar to find wisdom and selfknowledge. Jacob is another Old Testament figure who stands for higher aspirations. Moses, on the other hand, is the bringer of law who dies before entering the Promised Land to which he leads his people from captivity in Egypt. In dreams, he may symbolize moral integrity on the path to spiritual enlightenment or the holy figure that can lead us out of difficulty.

The following dream depicts particular aspects of darkness. Example: ‘It was a festival in this strange world, in which everything had a rather dark, dilapidated look’ (Tom). Dark here is ancient, things dating from times past. This may refer to our sense of our own childhood which feels like the ancient past, or to our unconscious knowledge of family and cultural attitudes and experience. In general the ‘strange’ world of the unconscious or sleep.
Example: ‘I was overwhelmed by terror, as if the very darkness of the tunnel was a living force of fear which entered and consumed me. I screamed and screamed, writhing in uncontrollable fit-like contractions. Nevertheless a part of me was observing what was happening and was amazed, realising I had found something of great importance’ (Andrew P). Because the dreamer explored this dream with me, I know the darkness was depicting fear Andrew experienced while a nine year old in hospital. He was given a rectal anaesthetic because he was about to have a nose operation. He fought and begged for the nurses to stop, but to no avail. This led to a very real feeling that humans were terrifyingly dangerous animals who would not respond even if you were on your knees begging. So trauma was the fear in the darkness. Darkness here is the unconscious area of experience.
Example: ‘I am back in time looking at an old cottage. I see the windows, walls and doors, everything about the place.
It is dark and old and warm. I see the curtains and bedrooms, all the ornaments and I feel safe and comfortable’ (Mrs R). Here dark is comfortable, perhaps because it is undemanding, one is not in any glare of attention or activity.
It is the relaxed quiet of evening. This woman has a relaxed relationship with her unconscious.
Example: ‘I met a woman I know in a long, dark underground tunnel. She was waiting for me. We had sexual intercourse. She had a very formed vagina mouth, and a very large clitoris, like a small penis. I masturbated this’ (Norman). Norman has no fear of the tunnel.
It is his secret desire and pleasure which he admits to no one, often not even to himself. Dark here is one’s secret self.

analysis of a dream
Angela dreamed: “I was sitting in a park reading a book, when I noticed dozens of eyes flitting around. They were the size of a pea and had small wings on their backs—like flies. At first, it made me laugh; they were of all different colors and kept blinking, closing and opening their small, long- lashed eyelids. But soon I began to feel harassed. They kept watching me intently, they would slip between the pages of my book. I decided to go home, but the eyes began flying after me, determined not to leave me be.”
Angela’s dream is closely related to her profession as an actress. When she had this dream she had to shoot her first nude scene and felt very insecure. She knew that during the shoot there would be many people watching: director, cameraman, makeup artist... and she worried she was not up to the task. The book reflected her desire to prepare well for the moment, to study and rehearse well all the techniques for a convincing, professional performance. However, the eyes stalking her at all times, preventing her from reading, was a message warning that her unconscious fear could stop her.
At the time of the scene, Angela remembered the dream and understood it perfectly. The thought made her smile and immediately relax. She forgot about the eyes all around and concentrated on her role. The scene went well in the first take, and when the director shouted: ‘Cut!,’ everyone applauded.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams
Vision: Dreaming about blue eyes: either somebody is secretly in love with you or you are secredy in love with someone. Dark or brown eyes: prepare yourself for a disappointing romance.

If the father figure was absent when you were growing up or your father never punished you severely or unfairly, your unconscious may summon up a father archetype to bring to your attention immature attitudes that are holding you back.
Your older brother, uncle or boss may assume the dream role of the archetypal father, a benevolent provider and protector who uses his authority fairly and wisely; in dreams, such figures may appear to dispense invaluable advice. Bear in mind, though, that the father figure can also abuse his authority and if father figures appear as brutes in your dreams, they may have been pointing to your own brutishness and selfishness.
If you had an authoritarian father, a wellknown dictator such as Hitler, Stalin or Chairman Mao may appear in your dreams representing that relationship.
If you dream about your boss, this may simply suggest anxieties you have about your work. Dream bosses, however, can also represent aspects of your father and dreams of being fired can recall parental rejection.
If you ask for a raise in your dream, this expresses a need for more attention and love in waking life, whilst a friendly boss reveals a longing for less responsibility.
If you are the boss in your dreams, this represents your desire for more dominance in a waking relationship.
If you rebel against your boss in your dream, this can be a positive sign, as rebelling against parental authority or challenging authority that is dictatorial and unjust is a healthy part of growing up and becoming a self-confident adult.
Houses are often represented as images of the dreamer; so a dream of a landlord or landlady, or someone else who actually owns your dream house, may suggest you are not feeling in control of your waking life; or perhaps someone, such as a partner or parent, is being overly dominant....

For women who change partners frequently, the dream is the personification of a bad conscience (particularly if her father— when she was a child—was the primary disciplinarian).
If you yourself are the father, it means you will “create” a life. Speaking to your father: you have a suppressed longing to lean on someone or to be guided by someone. Seeing your own father: you feel you are bringing shame to your family and owe your father an apology. Dreaming about your deceased father: help is on the way or someone is making you very happy.

If you dream of Julius Caesar—someone famous for being brutally betrayed and assassinated by his followers—this image may suggest that your hostility towards someone, however justified, is a betrayal. Caesar also warns against alienating others through ambition and pride.
If you dream of Nero, the Roman emperor, it could be that you are worried by your own, or someone else’s, life of debauchery and random, cruel decisions. To dream of Cleopatra is a stark warning of the dangers of balancing love with ambition and power; she famously combined sex appeal, political cunning, beauty and ambition to influence her Roman lovers, Caesar and Mark Anthony. The warning in the dream comes from the fact that she ultimately died from a self-inflicted serpent bite.
For Jungians, ‘good queen Bess’ or Queen Elizabeth I may evoke the archetypal image of the great mother, combining earthly power with spiritual exaltation. Also significant is the fact that Elizabeth, as the Virgin Queen, renounced her sexuality for her country. George Washington was a brave soldier and honest leader, and presents an image of the archetypal father figure. Freudians might perhaps see his felling of the infamous cherry tree, because ‘he could never tell a lie’, as an acknowledgement of repressed sexuality. The famous French leader Napoleon was a liberator yet also a tyrant, and in dreams may be the symbol of a dictator or overbearing father figure. As a role model of justice with wisdom and compassion, Abraham Lincoln may evoke the wise old man archetype with its ability to impart knowledge and inspire; his assassination, which he predicted in a dream, adds elements of sacrifice and intuition to his symbolism. The head of the Catholic Church, the Pope, may also represent the archetypal wise old man.
As the ultimate villain of the twentieth century, Adolf Hitler reminds you that dark urges are not fictional characteristics but very much alive in human nature. Jungians would see in him and other brutal dictators, such as Stalin, Mao Tse-Tung or Pol Pot, the archetypal shadow figure. Winston Churchill, by contrast, is a shining example of the triumph of wisdom, experience and indomitable will, as his greatest glory only came when many thought his career was over. A symbol of strength and persistence, he is also an ideal father figure: tough and gruff, but also fair, courageous and protective. The dream image of John F. Kennedy is a symbol of the archetypal free-spirited hero, but he may also indicate voracious sexual appetites.
The appearance of Carl Jung in your dreams may be reassuring you if you share his view that dreams are a powerful way to gather new insights on the path to spiritual self-fulfillment.
If Freud appears in your dreams, he may represent the image of the psychoanalyst listening to your anxieties. You may speak to your dream analyst about things you keep from others—and even yourself—in waking life.

A lighthouse is located on a shoreline and provides perspective in an otherwise concealed landscape. During a fog, the lighthouse emits both a visual and an audio clue to allow travelers to navigate through what would otherwise be dangerous territory. To get to the core of this symbol, we begin with where a lighthouse is located.
The ocean represents the deep emotional unconscious parts of the human psyche. Land is what is conscious and within our awareness.
The shoreline is where these two vastly different landscapes meet. Because they are so very different in nature, the boundary that exists between land and sea can be a strange and sometimes treacherous place. This is true of the shoreline, where the land meets the sea in the real world. In the world of symbolic meaning, these two dichotomous elements of the human condition interact with each other in a dramatic and sometimes violent way.
The lighthouse keeps you safe in this dangerous territory.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

A fire burning in a domestic hearth is likely to point to your private life, whilst a bonfire or beacon has more public significance as a symbol of communication.

The moon is a very powerful symbol, just as it is an enormous energetic force in our daily life on Earth. As the heavenly counterpart to the masculine energy of the sun, the moon represents the feminine aspects of life.
The primary essence of the moon is its constant changeability. In this regard, the moon symbolizes the ephemeral quality of life and all of the different cycles that human beings experience.
If the moon plays a prominent role in your dream, your interpretation should begin with the notion that change is afoot.
A distinction should be made about how the moon appears in your dream.
If the moon itself is visible to you in the skyscape of your dream, then you are looking at the source of emotional power.
If your dream illuminates the light of the moon itself as it falls upon Earth, then you are dreaming of the effect or impact of the moon’s magic.
If your dream actually takes place on the moon, then you are literally visiting the seat of your unconscious directly; such a dream should be considered as a very deliberate snapshot of your current experience of how the invisible side of life is impacting the visible.
