Tryskelion Dream Interpretation | Pagan - Anonymous

A dream of being unfaithful in any way is warning you to be more discriminating in regard to your choice of playmates.

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

Being unfaithful to a partner in dreams does not necessarily mean that the situation will happen or is happening, but rather that you are being unfaithful to yourself, betraying your own principles. You are not fulfilling your promises, or the goals you set. Your partner is nothing more than the reflection of your interior, the darkest part of your person. In general, an act of infidelity demonstrates the disconformity you feel with some kind of rule.

If it refers to your sentimental relationship, the dream denotes deception and unsatisfied needs.

If your partner is the one who is unfaithful, it may mean that you are denying their emotional desires.

Oneiric superstition says that this dream expresses the opposite. It promises a happy relationship, full of fidelity.

The Big Dictionary of Dreams | Martha Clarke

Dreaming about being unfaithful suggests that you take a better look at your current relationship. What was the person in your dream giving you (emotionally or otherwise) that your real life partner does not? Communicate effectively and begin to develop those areas of your relationship that need most improvement. Understanding this dream may assist you in understanding your relationship and the level of attachment to your partner. Many people write about “dreams of cheating.” Either they are cheating, or they believe that their boyfriends/girlfriends are cheating on them. In either case, they are upset and outraged by such dreams. It seems logical that these types of dreams are connected to feelings of inadequacy or dissatisfaction.

If the partner in your dream was a total stranger then the dream may be much more personal and profound. It could be telling you something about the relationship that you have with yourself by giving you clues about the nature of your unconscious.

The Bedside Dream Dictionary | Silvana Amar

If you dream of being unfaithful to someone, you may be feeling guilty about lying to a friend, or you may be misrepresenting yourself to others.

My Dream Interpretation | myjellybean

If you dream of cheating in any manner, either by you, or by your loved one, then this is a direct warning for you to be more circumspect about your actions to and with the opposite sex.

It is warning you that if you do not, you will suffer the consequences.

If you are the cheater in your dream, you may have a guilty conscious about cheating that has nothing to do with love.

Encyclopedia of Dreams | Michael and Elizabeth Thiessen

Dreams of infidelity often indicate that one needs to confront feelings of guilt about sexual relationships.

Dream Symbols in The Dream Encyclopedia | James R. Lewis and Evelyn Dorothy Oliver

If the dreamer is the one being unfaithful, then he is dealing with feelings of guilt over an apparent betrayal.

If an actual lover is the one being unfaithful, then this indicates the dreamer’s insecurities over the relationship.

The partner may or may not actually be unfaithful, but either way the dreamer needs to deal with her feelings.

If an unknown figure is the one being unfaithful, then the dreamer needs to be more discriminating with regard to who she calls friend. Astrological parallel: Mars/Pluto combinations Tarot parallel: The Devil

Dream Explanations of Astro Center | Astro Center

This symbolizes a circuitous route to meeting needs and an avoidance of crucial matters. There is no intimacy need that cannot be met in a primary relationship. Going outside of a marriage or partnership for sex or affection is a way of meeting a primal need in a roundabout way. Simultaneously, there is an avoidance of some underlying problem. Therefore, this image represents both a circuitous route to connection and an avoidance of confrontation.

If you discover an infidelity in a dream, you may want to consider areas in your life where you are avoiding taking care of yourself.

If you are engaged in an affair, you might need to examine your life circumstances for signs of being manipulative or indirect in getting your needs met. As getting caught is always reflective of an unconscious desire to effect a change, being discovered as being unfaithful could indicate a desire to shift some area of your life. Always be willing to look at issues of responsibility when this dream image appears. Where in your life are you not allowing yourself to be accountable for your actions? If the dream involves details of constructing an affair, you may want to examine how genuine you are being in terms of expressing and manifesting your desires in life, both relationally and otherwise. Where in your life are you not being authentic? How might you be betraying your own needs? It is safe to assume that this image in a dream indicates a theme of intimacy issues in waking life, no matter what the marital state of the dreamer. This may have literal implications if you are actually involved in an affair or believe your partner to be.

SeeingJesus upon whom be peace in a dream also means glad tidings, for he was the last of God’s prophets who gave the glad tidings and spoke of God’s Messenger Muhammad, upon whom be peace, as the praiseworthy comforter.

(Poclete; Praclytos. See John 14-15/18, 25/26, 29/30) Seeing Jesus upon whom be peace in a dream also means answering one’s prayers, or wrath against people from the upper social class, or against those who challenged him to bring down a table of food from the heavens then had doubt about God’s power again.

Ifone who is impotent, or sterile sees him in a dream, it means that he will regain his fertility and fruition. Ifone sees Jesus upon whom be peace descending upon a town, it means that justice and righteousness will prevail and permeate that place, as it will be when he shall, by God’s leave, descends upon the earth to kill the impostor (Antichrist) and destroy his followers, obliterate infidelity, and he shall fill the earth with justice, blessings and lend victory to the believers....

  • Also See: Jumping

Superstition based interpretations say that if you are kissing strangers, you may have a need to conquer. If the kissing is insincere, you are pretentious while if you see your partner kissing someone else, you may be afraid of infidelity. Money
Money in dreams does not necessarily represent hard currency, but more the way in which we value ourselves. This symbol appearing in dreams would suggest that we need to assess that value more carefully, and equally to be aware of what we ‘pay’ for our actions and desires. If there is a feeling of self-denial in our making savings, particularly to the point of miserliness, we may not have managed our resources properly in the past and are having to suffer for it now. We may also fear the future. If someone else gives us their savings, we are able to use their knowledge and expertise. Paralysis
  • When paralysis is felt in a dream we are probably experiencing great fear or suppression. Feelings that are emotionally based are experienced as paralysis in order to highlight the physical effect those feelings can have.
  • Imagination can often play tricks on us, and we experience as real some kind of reaction we would not normally allow ourselves. Paralysis is one such reaction.
  • Paralysis can signify spiritual inadequacy, inability to create movement, and inertia. There is a condition which sometimes occurs during development when we are forced into facing our own fears, and this can be experienced as paralysis.

It may also symbolize the birth of new ideas, projects, directions, or goals. To dream of being pregnant with a dying baby suggests an undertaking you worked hard for is suddenly doomed to fail. It denotes anxiety over things that are unfolding in ways you never expected. A pregnant woman having dreams of her pregnancy usually conveys her worries in various stages of her pregnancy. First trimester dreams are usually consists of small creatures, furry animals, flowers, fruits, and water. Second trimester dreams usually cover birth complications and self-doubt about motherhood. You may also dream of giving birth to a non-human baby. Finally, in the third trimester, you tend to dream of your own mother. When a man dreams of getting a girl pregnant, it is a warning that serious consequences may result from his sexual activities. Prison
Being in a prison may comment on feelings of being persecuted or punished for doing something wrong. A prison may also mention that you are imprisoned by your own thoughts or beliefs. Since a prison represents lack of personal freedom, it may point to a relationship that restricts your freedom, such as a bad marnage. Sexuality - Sex
Dreams of a sexual nature are very common and act both as an emotional release and a reassurance that everything is in order with your sexuality. Being intimate with a stranger is a fantasy that many people enjoy and this type of dream may indicate a wish for new experiences or experimentation. Intimacy with your partner in a dream acts as a reassurance of your love, and serves to strengthen your bond in your own mind. Snakes
The snake is a powerful dream symbol, associated with the feminine, healing and spirituality. Being bitten by a snake in a dream is actually positive, meaning you are accepting all parts of your nature as you grow into a stronger person. If you dream about you or an animal attacking, wrestling with or trying to kill a snake, you will have to defend your reputation against nasty gossip. If the attempt to kill the snake was successful in your dream, you will succeed against all hostilities. Spiders
In a dream, a spider represents a malicious woman, or a weak, perfidious and a distant man. A spider in a dream also represents a weaver, an ascetic or a monk. Ifone sees a spider in his dream, it may mean that he will meet a pious and a religious man. Weaving a web in a dream means becoming weak. A spider in a dream also could represent a pleasing wife. If one sees a spider hanging down from the ceiling in a dream, it indicates a severe winter in that area. Teeth
Hostility or an attack, such as when dream figures deliver "biting words" or "bare their teeth. " Losing teeth in a dream may reflect words said in haste, or losing the ability to speak candidly. Because this bony part of the body endures long after death, it has some associations with the cycle of birth, death, and rebirth. In this context, losing teeth might equate to losing the will to live or having your personal power taken away. Rotten teeth equate either to the fear of old age, or someone whose words are filled with so much insincere sweetness that decay in that relationship is inevitable. Having teeth pulled out represents an end to suffering that is aided by an external force. Vehicle - Vehicles
If you dream of riding in a vehicle and someone else is driving, you will soon take a business trip at your bosses convenience. If you are riding in a vehicle where you or a member of your family are driving, then your trip will be for pleasure or personal business. Walking or Running
A running dream is basically a dream of escaping a certain situation, person, or thing. If you succeed in running away from, or elude a pursuer, then you will be able to change those things in your life that has you ‘on the run’. If you dream of the desire to run but cannot get your feet to obey it shows a lack of self confidence and perseverance on your part. Try sticking to your guns and see how much your life will change. Water
It is a mirror of your subconscious mind.

The quality of water often describes the situation of your emotions. Crystal clear, clean, adulterated, calm mostly provides strong insights about the state of your feelings.

Abdomen

The cause of this dream may be physiological: heartburn or indigestion. From an emotional standpoint, it represents something that you can’t stand anymore and wish to get away from. The interpretation varies according to the size of the abdomen. Thus, a heavy one shows that the subject is conscious of her personal or social duties; a slim one symbolizes losses or economic issues; if it is growing, it is because the loads get heavier by the day and you can’t foresee how to deal with them; and a wrinkled one predicts betrayal.

If the abdomen is bleeding there is a chance of an accident or tragedy within the family; and if it belongs to a child, infection may occur shortly. It also has sexual connotation. On a woman, it predicts longing for maternity.

According to traditional folklore, dreaming of your own abdomen is a sign good things are on the way, but you will have to work for them. Likewise, it predicts infidelity. An image of a worn abdomen warns against possible lies.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

Divorce

Dreaming of a divorce is evidence of complicated love affairs and urges you to reflect calmly before making important decisions. This oneiric thought may also reflect an internal division between mind and heart.

If they are not reconciled, you can end up suffering psychological problems. On the other hand, dreams that are generated after a marital separation tend to be distressing. Often, one spouse (particularly the one that has been abandoned) dreams of scenes involving sexual rejection or direct infidelity. Therefore, during the first stages of a divorce, dreams and nightmares are a measure of your disorientation and intense feelings of pain.

According to oneiric oracles, this dream is a warning. It advises you to improve the atmosphere of your domestic environment.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

Fan

Dreaming of fanning yourself to get air signifies a desire to begin new activities. Conversely, if you use it to cover your face, the fan indicates that your relationships are not precisely sincere; it can even denote you are lying to yourself. In many cases, dreaming of fans is a sign of infidelity, intrigue, or even frivolity. On the other hand, it is important to keep in mind that the character handling the fan in the dream is often the one who takes initiative in the real world.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

Hanging

This type of dream may indicate the peak of a depression from which things will start to change. The individual that is being hanged begins to appreciate what they possess instead of being sorry for what they lack.

Divination interprets this oneiric image as loss of property, unfair trials, being unable to claim an inheritance, or infidelity.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

Holm Oak

This sturdy tree symbolizes wisdom and strength, both physical and moral.

It is the favorite sacred tree of the gods because, more than others, it attracts Zeus’s lightning. The Celts, who got mistletoe from it, attributed great powers to it. God appeared to Abraham in an holm oak branch, thus symbolizing stability, protection, and strength.

A lush and sturdy holm oak casts longevity, prosperity, and happy old age. Climbing it portends great energy. The branches represent the strength and courage of the dreamer.

If it does not have leaves it predicts loss of property. A downcast holm oak endangers the sleeper’s finances; pruned, portends marital infidelity.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

Snail

The image of a snail is related to several meanings: the upward spiral, female and male sexuality, the notion of slowness in the course of things, and also infidelity. However, a snail in dreams can be interpreted as an indication of introspection and shyness.

If in the dream the snail eats plants and flowers, it announces the loss of job due to negligence or laziness; if it shows its horns, infidelity; if it stays in the shell, sympathy for the characters that presented in the episode. If, however, it moves towards the dreamer it suggests delays in business.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

Swing

Psychoanalysis tend to relate the swing with auto-eroticism, and interprets the fear of rolling or of seasickness, produced by the swing, as inhibitions from childhood.

Dreaming that you swing with your partner predicts a happy marriage and a large family; if you swing alone it denotes selfishness and infidelity; and if the chain is broken a birth of a child will be coming soon. A stationary swing is indicative of intense but brief joy.

SWING - analysis of the dream

Joana dreamed: “I was ten and I swung on a swing in the park. My father pushed me and I drove myself forward strongly, stretching my legs. With my toes I could almost touch the clouds. I was happy. I felt light and powerful. Suddenly, I turned around and I no longer saw my father. I felt fear and dizziness. I called him with all my might, but he did not appear.”

Joana had this dream two days after receiving a marriage proposal. She was still undecided. She knew her boyfriend very well and was truly in love, but the idea of marriage made her feel too grown up, despite her youth—she was only 20 years old. This also made her long for her childhood. Swinging on the swing and the pleasant feeling from getting high up are related to her desire for freedom. But the fact that it was her father who pushed her and watched her closely, so that she would not fall, revealed her insecurity and her desire for protection.

In dreams, swinging yourself in the swing is also interpreted as a symbol of indecision; your issues are on the tightrope and sway from side to side without ever landing on site. Joana’s unconscious was encouraging her to be in charge of her life and to decide for herself, breaking family ties—her father disappears in the dream—and accepting her maturity....

Wedding

Dreaming of your own wedding signifies the desire to unify criteria, obtain concessions or professional alliances, and find allies to support projects. It also indicates the search for inner harmony, communication with the inner self, and the union of two formerly conflicting aspects of your personality. Wedding dreams are recurring for couples who are about to get married. In fact, some studies indicate that forty percent of all oneiric activity during the prenuptial period contains references—either direct or indirect—to the marriage ceremony, to the future spouse, and to marriage in general.

It is often common to dream of disasters occurring in the ceremonies, scenes of sexual rejection, images of infidelity, etc. But these prenuptial dreams should not be cause of alarm because, for example, dreaming of a sexual adventure can reveal fear of abandonment; and being naked at the wedding, fear of performing badly.

Not all old dream books agree on the interpretation of this symbol. Usually, it is seen as a good omen and as a premonition of a future marriage. However, to attend someone else’s wedding is a prediction of damage, loss, and infidelity.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

Dream It With Flowers

In Victorian America and Europe, flowers were attributed with specific meanings by young men and women who used them during courtship to send messages to each other, whether in a forthright manner or by more clandestine means. Straightforward romantic or poetic thoughts were conveyed by the presentation of a single bloom, whilst lengthier messages were communicated by larger arrangements.

Love and happiness were not the only feelings expressed by these floral epistles. Infidelity, jealousy, disdain and rejection were also expressed by a suitably chosen bloom. Whilst a simple flower may have been sent to a young lady to propose marriage, another seemingly innocuous blossom may have been sent in response, telling the gentleman caller to ‘get lost’. The color of the flower was extremely significant; to cite a few examples, red usually meant love, yellow indicated friendship, lavender suggested enchantment, and orange fascination.

As far as dream interpretation goes, the list of meanings is seemingly endless, as nearly every flower has been attributed with a specific meaning at some point in time. In Victorian times, the range of available flowers was limited, and so certain flowers had specific meanings; today, with so many flower choices, there are no rules—it’s the sentiment and personal association that gives the flower meaning to you in a dream. For those interested in the historic or generally accepted meanings of flowers, the list below has been compiled from a variety of different sources, including the American Society of Florists.

Playing Cards In Dreams

Long before people used cards to play games, they were used to foretell the future. In fact, playing cards were invented for divination rather than for entertainment. Bear in mind that dreams comment on future possibilities rather than predict the future, but if a particular card is highlighted in your dream, the following traditional divinatory meanings may suggest possible situations you might like to encourage or avoid in your waking life. First of all, the suits are associated with the four elements as follows: Hearts—Water; Clubs—Fire; Diamonds—Earth; Spades—Air. The individual card meanings are as follows:

Abdomen / Stomach / Belly

When dreams focus on your abdomen, belly or stomach, they are referring to repressed feeling and emotions. The stomach is often seen as the center of emotions. This symbol may also have purely physiological origins if you have been experiencing constipation or indigestion. From a psychological point of view, seeing your abdomen in your dream may imply something in your real life that you ‘cannot stomach’ or have difficulties accepting, something you want to get out of your system.

If your abdomen is exposed, this signifies trust and vulnerability, and in women it may indicate a desire for motherhood.

If you are injured or shot in the stomach, this is about emotional hurt. Traditional folklore says that dreaming of your abdomen can foretell infidelity. A shriveled abdomen warns of lies, a swollen abdomen promises success. To see your navel in your dream represents your being and self. The dream may suggest that you need to find your center and middle ground.... The Element Encyclopedia

Dream Houses

The front of the house and activities outside the house represent your persona, the face you show to the world, whereas whatever is inside the house reveals your inner life.

If the house is being attacked or burgled, this suggests criticism or social pressure from others.

If the house is burning or falling down, this represents leaving old attitudes behind.

If the house feels cramped and dark, there is a feeling of restriction in waking life, whilst structural faults suggest broken relationships or illness.

If work or repairs are being carried out on the house, perhaps certain relationships are breaking down or health matters need to be attended to.

An impressive big house in dreams suggests that we are conscious of our potential.

If the house is small, the dreamer is perhaps seeking security and freedom from responsibility.

If you were living in a bungalow in your dream, there may be a suggestion that you are living too much on one level, both practically and emotionally.

If there are unfamiliar rooms in a well-known house, this represents unexplored potential.

If other people are in the house, they suggest different aspects of yourself you may feel threatened by, or other people you are involved with, or about to be involved with, in waking life. Going into or out of the house suggests that we may need to decide whether we need to be more introverted or extroverted.

If you go into another person’s house, this suggests that you are getting involved with that person, perhaps being a part of their life.

If you see a loved one move into someone else’s house in your dream, this may be your fear of their infidelity, but it may also reveal a growing distance in your relationship. Planning or altering a house, or building an annexe may refer to a change in your lifestyle or approach to life.

Rows of houses represent other people. According to dream lore, country houses suggest tranquility; building a house, a growth in confidence; a new house, a busy social life; an empty house or moving house, financial worries; a big house, good fortune, and a small house, misfortune.

If you are buying a house in your dreams this may relate to making a decision to change in waking life, or wanting to make some kind of change. Buying a house involves decision making and this points to the importance of clarifying what it is that you want in waking life.

If the house in your dream is an igloo, this is a symbol of security and completeness and, because it is warm on the inside and cold on the outside, it points to differences between what you feel on the inside and you do and say on the outside. In general dreaming about a flat or apartment has the same meaning as dreaming about a house, but the interpretation depends on whether or not you have lived in an apartment or flat before.

If you did, were you living alone in the flat or did you share, and what was this like? This will influence the feelings associated with the image in your dream.... The Element Encyclopedia

Some Common Questions About Sexual Dreams

If I make love to someone I know in my dream, does that mean he or she is interested in me? In most cases such dreams have more to do with your own feelings rather than hidden passions coming from other people. Remember your dreaming mind uses sexual imagery to give you a taste of how things might be different and teach you about love and passion.

Why do I dream of being intimate with people to whom I’m not attracted? There are several reasons for this.

If you honestly don’t find the person attractive in waking life, they may represent a quality or characteristic that is closely linked to a quality you are exploring or discovering within yourself.

If the partner is particularly unsavory, your dreaming mind may be encouraging you to say no to things that are not right for you.

Are dreams of my partner’s infidelity a warning sign? In some cases, yes, but in the majority of cases such dramas are metaphors for some kind of emotional abandonment or neglect; perhaps your loved one is showing more attention to the children—or to their job or hobbies—than to you.

Do repeated dreams of my first love mean I have not got over him or her? Your first love tends to be a symbol of romantic love in dreams but when they appear in your dreams, it is likely that your dreaming mind is using them as an emblem of love to help you work through your current relationship issues. In most cases, your dreaming mind is focused on current issues.

What do dreams of being back with my ex mean? Dreaming about your ex does not mean you want to be with them. Unless you are convinced that your latest ex is the ’one’, your dreaming mind is using them as an actor to represent your love interest. In most cases, such dreams suggest that you are going over old issues or relationship patterns, and that your dreaming mind is using such images to help you heal and move on to a more positive future. When any relationship breaks down, your dreaming mind will delve into memories, fears and hopes to help you unravel mysteries and gain understanding about what makes real love work. Your inner mind is constantly sorting through what works and what doesn’t work in a relationship, and it will refer back to past relationships to compare strengths and weaknesses and try to make sense of things.

If I have a perfect dream romance, does this mean the perfect partner will appear in my life? In you are single and you have a perfect romantic and sexual dream, this could be wish-fulfillment but it could also be your dreaming mind’s way of reminding you that love and passion are still out there and you should open yourself up to the possibility of romance.

If I have a bizarre or distressing dream about sex, does this mean I’m weird? Don’t interpret your dreaming according to how you judge it when you are awake, and try not to feel guilty. Instead, try to understand the dream and remind yourself that your dreaming mind will use sexual images—even graphic or shocking ones—as metaphors or opportunities to learn about yourself....
