Winter

For those living in the Northern hemisphere, a dream involving the winter season signifies a time of rest and contemplation but your dream may also be suggesting that your life is barren and empty. It may also symbolize old age or a time during which you need to look back on your life and try to learn from both your mistakes and your successes.

If this is your favorite time of the year, the dream may hint to an upcoming holiday vacation.

I discovered that certain symbols can tell you if there is a financial blessing coming your way, dreaming of certain fruit, wheat and animals indicate this.

Bread with watermelon and strawberry jam

I had this dream of my parent’s home, in a dream I am at my parents home outside in the neighbors front yard. A young man came out of the neighbor’s house and gave me two whole slices of brown bread pack withwatermelon and strawberry jam in my left hand.

I looked in dismay as the jam ran out of the bread and it seems more wants to run over. I must get this bread on a plate. I went into the kitchen and found my mother who already passed on.

Mom can you give me a plate please, she gave me a small white plate that can hardly fit the bread. “No mom, I want a big plate”. End of the dream

Dream symbols

My parents home, neighbors, man, brown bread, watermelon, strawberry jam, jam running over, kitchen, Mother, small plate, big plate.

MY PARENTS HOME/ past, memories, freedom

NEIGBOURS FRONT YARD/ present, future

MAN/ messenger,

BROWN BREAD/ provision

WATERMELON/season/ word/prosperity/

STRAWBERRY JAM/ heart’s desire/ abundance

JAM RUNNING OVER. / vats shall run over

KITCHEN /preparation

MY MOTHER /answer to prayer church, Holy Spirit

SMALL WHITE PLATE- lack

BIG PLATE- increase, enlarge your territory

This dream took place the 12th August 2012. It speaks of a season of provision and blessing, within the same week more than fifteen thousand was deposited in my bank account. During September we received an inheritance, with that provision we paid of our Bond to our home. Having said this, October 2012 a large sum from an unexpected source was deposited in my bank account and it is not over yet because there was watermelon on the bread in a time of winter. Watermelon is a summer fruit. (Seasonal) It is my season and yours! Claim it in Jesus name. Watermelon is one of those symbols finances is coming your way!

Remember that dreams are allegorical- literal interpretations should always be the last to consider! Look for word plays on names, look at what the person’s name means, who they are relationally to you etc.

People is the symbol that is the most difficult to understand in personal dreams. Because the dream is personal—for you and about you—people are symbolic and are not those you know in real life. People we know well and/or relatives often represents a characteristic of the dreamer while those we do not know, represent something external to the dreamer.

When you dream about people, ask yourself what this represents to you. Let us take a baby. What does a baby do? Babies keep you busy. A new baby may signify something new, a new ministry or a job. A baby will die without any help, in other words it is helpless, and an older baby may represent growing spiritually. Hannah could not have children she prayed and received her miracle. Always remember the Holy Spirit is your best teacher

To see a man whom you know in a dream represents a messenger bringing both good and bad news. An approachable, kindly stranger also represents a counselor, advisor, friend, encourager or someone who has come to help you.

A Woman Is Often Symbolic of the Holy Spirit in a Dream. A woman symbolic of the Holy Spirit of God will have a soft, glowing look to her complexion, strikingly beautiful full head of shiny white hair and wearing bright white clothing. There will also be a glow about the symbolic woman and/or a luminous aura around her face. She can be portrayed as an older woman figure you recognize.... yeast dream meaning

Month

A particular month (May, August, etc.) can represent the actual time frame of a real-life event portrayed in the dream, or it can set a mood or context that you associate with that month or time of year (such as January representing a new beginning or June representing your friend who has a June birthday).

Hat

Universal Landscape: The containment of thoughts and/or ideas.

Dreaming Lens: Were you wearing the hat or was someone else? Was it a man’s hat or a woman’s hat? Was the hat related to keeping warm in the cold weather? Was the hat more for the purpose of adornment or fashion? Were you aware of to whom the hat belonged? Why did you have the hat and how did you feel about it?

Personal Focus: The head is the symbolic wellspring of our thoughts and ideas. Hats both adorn and protect the head. As such, a hat can represent specific ideas or thoughts themselves, but also the need or desire to contain them. In terms of adornment, a hat can be the outward expression of an inner idea. In the realm of protection, a hat can connect with keeping such ideas firmly in place.

Wearing someone else’s hat could indicate expressing the notion of trying on someone else’s ideas. If you can easily make an association between the hat in your dream and a person in your life, use the Character Aspect technique to inform your interpretation. The same would apply if someone in your dream was wearing the hat.

Style should be considered as well. A man wearing a woman’s hat may be considering a more flamboyant or expressive thought pattern. An old-fashioned hat might connect to an outdated modality of thought. Something very flashy could represent the creativity of your current way of thinking. How you feel about such a hat would indicate the level of risk associated with the choice to be expressive in such a way. Keep in mind the various ways in which hats have been in and out of fashion. The days of ubiquitous hat-wearing are considerably out of fashion. Ski caps used to be exclusively worn in winter, but are now part of the “gangsta” culture.

The motivation for wearing a hat may play a large part in a dream’s interpretation. A hat may be used to hide a loss of hair in which case the meaning takes on a new slant connecting with the authenticity (or lack thereof) of what you are presenting to the world. There are cultural considerations to examine as well: in some cultures, wearing a hat indoors would be considered rude while in others there are religious demands to keep the head covered at all times.... hat dream meaning

The Seasons

The words of Ecclesiastes, ‘to everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven’, echo in many facets of dream-lore. The seasons of the year over the ages have come to represent the natural progression of your life, representing change and renewal, as well as your state of mind. They also relate to the four elements: winter represents earth; spring symbolizes rain or water; summer, heat and fire; and the winds of autumn, air.... the seasons dream meaning

The Element Encyclopedia

Time Of Day

If a dream is specifically set during daylight or nighttime, take into account your waking associations with early morning and nighttime.

If you are a night owl, a nighttime dream will have a far more positive interpretation than if you were an early bird. You may also associate daytime with routine and work and nighttime with relaxation and freedom. Dreams that take place in bright daylight also suggest your conscious waking life and feelings of optimism and clarity, and dreams of nighttime can indicate the unconscious as well as negativity and ignorance. Twilight in dreams can suggest a period of uncertainty and possible ambivalence as far as your direction in life is concerned. It may also suggest the afterlife.

Just as the 24-hour day is symbolically linked to the human life cycle, so too are the seasons: spring symbolizes birth and childhood and new beginnings; summer, adulthood; autumn, middle age; and winter, aging and death. The seasons can also signify your state of mind with spring representing optimism; summer, confidence, autumn, relaxation and reward; and winter, retreat. When several days, weeks, months, years or even longer pass in your dream, your unconscious is reflecting changes in your life or suggesting that your focus has currently been on things that are not relevant. Along with the second and minute hands on a clock, these dream images suggest slow and careful progression—or the need for it—in your waking life. Dreams of specific hours of the day may refer to your age, to a regular event in life or to a saying; for example 12 noon is middle age, or may refer to something that happens at that time of day, 11 o’clock may be the eleventh hour and so on. Noon may also be associated with lunch and nourishment, midnight with mystery and 6 o’clock with finishing work. See also NUMBERS.

Daffodil / Narcissus

The cheerful yellow petals of the daffodil bring brightness to spring, when it is one of the first flowers to appear, showing that winter is over. Because of this it is a symbol of hope and renewal. Therefore if a daffodil appears in your dream, you may be entering a new phase of your life. On the other hand, you may urgently need an injection of cheerfulness and optimism to brighten your life.

The smaller form of daffodil, traditionally known as the narcissus, warns against self-centeredness and not to confuse shadow for substance.... daffodil / narcissus dream meaning

Weather Superstition

In the past, when people lived and worked on the land, the weather was very important and people watched for patterns to help them predict the future weather. They then made up rhymes to help them to remember these patterns. Some of these sayings do contain a grain of truth. Others, particularly those that try to predict the weather for the following season from a single event, are unlikely to contain much truth. It is possible that your unconscious may draw on these ancient sayings not to predict the weather, but to predict your changing emotions or state of mind. So if an image of a red sky in the morning appears in your dream, could this be a warning, not of a storm, but of possible emotional conflict?

Here is a list of some of the most wellknown sayings.

If images that are reminiscent of them appear in your dreams—for example, cows standing in a line or crickets chirping—as well as referring to the specific symbols involved, it is always worth looking for possible interpretations concerning your mood or state of mind using the weather-related entries in this chapter as your guide:

  • Red sky at night, shepherd’s delight; red sky in the morning, shepherd’s warning.
  • Rain before seven, fine by eleven.
  • A sun shiny shower, won’t last half an hour.
  • If cows are standing in a field it will be fine, but if they are lying down it is going to rain.
  • Clear moon, frost soon.
  • When squirrels lay in a big store of nuts, look for a hard winter When bees stay close to the hive, rain is close by.
  • Rain, rain go away, come again another day.
  • Haloes around the moon or sun mean that rain will surely come.
  • When forest murmurs and mountain roars, close the windows and shut the doors.
  • Moss dry, sunny sky; moss wet, rain you’ll get When smoke descends, good weather ends.
  • A cow’s tail to the west is weather coming at its best; a cow’s tail to the east is weather coming at its least.
  • Flies will swarm before a storm.
  • If crows fly low, winds going to blow If crows fly high, winds going to die.
  • When sea birds fly to land, there truly is a storm at hand The sharper the blast, the sooner it’s past.
  • Rain is on the way if people with curly hair find their hair curlier and people with straight hair find their hair straighter.
  • Rain is on the way when old people with joint or muscle problems such as rheumatism or arthritis have stiffness and discomfort.
  • You can tell the temperature by counting a cricket’s chirps.

You can tell it will rain if: cats clean themselves more and meow more; pigs wallow about and squeal; cows huddle together as if seeking comfort from each other; horses ’switch and twitch’ and sometimes bolt; insects fly low and bite more; birds chirp more loudly; dandelions close their blossoms tightly; morning glory ’tucks in’ its blooms as if ready for a long nap; clover folds up its leaves; leaves on many trees roll up or show their undersides... weather superstition dream meaning

Islamic Dream Interpretation

Strength Of One's Dreams

The meaning of a dream is stronger when seen at dawn, or during an afternoon nap, or when fruits are ripening on their trees, or at the time of harvest, or when one's star is in the rising position, or at a time when one is intending to sign a business contract, or if one is thinking of getting married, or at the term of a decade, etcetera. Seeing a dream during a daylight nap is also stronger than seeing it at night. On the other hand, the meaning of a dream becomes weaker and less plausible when seen during the wintertime.

The dream of a righteous ruler or governor is considered to be an inspiration from God Almighty. The dreams of community leaders depend on their beliefs. The dreams of servants come true for their employers. Women's dreams may materialize faster than those of men. Sinners' dreams are a proof against them on the day of judgement, unless they repent before their death. The dreams of rich people are stronger than those of poor people. The dreams of rich people materialize faster than those of poor people. The dreams of poor people are slower when they connote benefits and faster when they connote adversities. Because of their innocence, the dreams of little children are truer than those of teenagers. This is because older children may be busy in their mischief and fulfilling their newly discovered desires. The dream of a drunk person has no ground. Shaikh Al-Karamani explains that "the dream of a scholar is truer than that of an ignorant person, the dream of a chaste person is truer than that of an unchaste person, the dream of a good person is truer than that of a bad person, and that the dream of an elderly person is truer than that of a younger person."

The meaning of a dream also varies depending on how people look in it, their dress, type of work they perform, status, or religion. To someone, the dream may mean glad tiding and mercy, while the same dream could mean the opposite for another person. One may wonder when he receives a gift in a dream, then the same gift reaches him in in wakefulness, or if he suffers an adversity in a dream, then the same adversity takes place in wakefulness. Another person may be promoted in his dream, then the same is conferred on him in wakefulness, or if one sees himself performing his pilgrimage to Mecca in a dream, then he joins the pilgrims' caravan in wakefulness or if one sees someone visiting him in a dream, then the same person arrives in wakefulness, days or hours later.

Finally, in pursuing what we have earlier explained, the elements of a dream are interpreted on the basis of three categories: 1- kind, such as trees, lions, or birds, etcetera, and; 2- specimen, such as the type and name of that tree (e.g. a conifer, a spruce, or a maple tree, etcetera), or what type of bird (e.g. a magpie, a pewee, or a condor, etcetera); and 3- characteristics, such as the nature, or inherent characteristics of a lion, a cat, a crocodile, or their habitat, etcetera.... strength of one's dreams dream meaning

Precognitive Disaster Dreams

The following precognitive disaster dreams certainly challenge our preconceptions and rational explanations about how the world and the dreaming mind relate to one another.

In his book Recollections of Abraham Lincoln, 1847-1865, Ward Hill Lamon relates a dream Lincoln had shortly before his death. In the dream, Lincoln heard a group of people mournfully weeping downstairs in the White House, but when he went to investigate, he found no mourners, although their desperate weeping continued. Upon entering the East Room he discovered a corpse wrapped in funeral vestments. Demanding of one of the soldiers stationed there, ‘Who is dead in the White House?,’ he received the reply, ‘The President. He was killed by an assassin.’ A day before the SS Titanic’s demise, a woman on the infamous ship dreamt of the horrible event that was to occur the next day. She told her husband, who scoffed at her worries and ignored her pleas. However, the dream so affected her that she secretly prepared herself the night before and had all her children sleep in their warm clothes in order to be ready at a moment’s notice. During the night, after the ship struck the iceberg, she and her children were rescued and escaped the sinking ship. Her husband, sadly, went down with more than 1,500 people.

In 1914, one hundred and twenty Newfoundland sealers were abandoned on an ice-floe in the North Atlantic during winter. The incompetence of the ship’s captain, and of other crew members, meant that the missing men were not noticed for two days and two nights. By the time they were rescued, more than half were dead. It was the worst disaster to strike the Newfoundland sealing community in many years. However, the disaster did not come without warning. One of the fiftyfive survivors later told of a dream he had two weeks before the disaster. According to Cassie Brown’s report on the disaster: ‘John Howlet had suffered a chilling nightmare weeks before. In his dream he was on a mountain of ice, lost and freezing. He was alone, terribly and frighteningly alone, but everywhere he wandered there were vague, indefinable “things” on the ice around him—things with no particular shape that he could make out. He found himself walking among those things, unable to find his way, wondering what they were and dreading them. In his dream he was counting, counting, counting…He was still counting the white mounds when he awoke, shivering and terribly depressed.’

Unfortunately, even this dream did not make him avoid joining the crew of the ship, Newfoundland, most of whom would be dead in a matter of days. It was only afterwards he realized that the bodies covered with snow were the white mounds from his dream.

In his autobiography, Jung recounts disturbing dreams and visions in 1913. In one vision he witnessed a monstrous flood covering Germany and realized a catastrophe was in progress. ‘I saw the mighty yellow waves, the floating rubble of civilization, and the drowned bodies of uncounted thousands. Then the whole sea turned to blood.’ Jung said he was perplexed and nauseated, assuming this vision was personal. It was not until World War I broke out a year later that he realized its collective nature. This irrational experience led Jung to conclude that each person’s unconscious possesses not only a personal, but also a collective, dimension.

Probably one of the best-established and most reputable cases of premonitions of disaster comes from the grim events that occurred on 21 October 1966 in Aberfan, Wales. On that day, 116 children and twenty-eight adults were killed when a large mountain of coal collapsed and buried a small section of the town of Aberfan, including an elementary school filled with children. The disaster touched nearly every family in the town and effectively extinguished an entire generation of children. After the disaster, the reports of premonitions began to flood in. The mother of one of the deceased students reported that her ten-year-old child (who died in the disaster) had a dream the night before which foretold the disaster. The child told her mother, ‘I dreamed I went to school and there was no school there.

Something black had come down all over it.’

The reports of precognitive dreams literally came from all over Wales and England. One lady had a nightmare that she suffocated in ‘deep blackness’. Another dreamed of a small child being buried by a large landslide. Another clearly saw a schoolhouse be buried by an avalanche of coal, and rescue workers digging frantically for survivors. Another woke up from a nightmare in which she was being buried alive. On the morning of the disaster, Mrs Sybil Brown woke from a dream in which she saw children being overcome by ‘a black, billowing mass’. Probably the clearest of the premonitions was reported by a man in north-west England who claimed that the night before the disaster he had a dream which consisted only of letters being spelled out in dazzling light: A-B-E-R-F-A-N. At the time, the dream had no meaning to him. Hours later, he would realize with horror what it meant.

An interesting phenomenon occurred in the aftermath of the terrorist plane attacks that destroyed the World Trade Center and damaged the Pentagon on 11 September 2001: numerous people came forward with reports of vivid dreams they’d had of these disasters in advance. The dreams were filled with images that later took place: planes crashing into buildings, planes crashing on the ground, tall buildings collapsing, flames shooting out of buildings, people running covered in gray ash, and feelings of panic, mass death and war. These nightmarish dreams were so realistic that many people awoke from them in terror and sweat.

The question most often raised about precognitive disaster dreams is, if so many people dreamed in advance of these disasters, why could nothing have been done to prevent them? The answer is that most people who have precognitive dreams only realize that they have had them after the events the dreams foretold have taken place, and they see how their dreams matched the events. Other dreamers, especially those who have periodic or frequent precognitive dreams, usually do not dream enough specific details to know exactly what is going to happen, where, and when. Some may only have a sense of dread that ‘something terrible’ is going to happen, usually soon. For example, a dream that a tall building is collapsing would not have sparked the immediate connection that terrorists were going to fly planes into the World Trade Center on the morning of 11 September 2001. A dream analyst would more likely interpret the image dream within the context of the dreamer’s life, suggesting that the dream reflected emotional turmoil within the dreamer’s life.... precognitive disaster dreams dream meaning

New Year’s Day

Celebrating the new year’s day in a dream means a short lived happiness, reminiscing the past, the passing of sorrow and adversities, or recovering lost money. In the dream, if the new year’s day coincide to be on a Friday, it means the spread of evil, corruption, or political turmoils for that year.

If it is a Saturday, it means drought, hardships during a difficult year, plagues and illness.

If it is a Sunday, it means a cold winter and a blessed crop for that year.

If it is a Monday, it means floods, winter illness and perhaps a partial loss of the crop.

If it is a Tuesday, it means shortage of rain and a cold winter.

If it is a Wednesday, it means scarcity and deficiency of water, and a cold weather by the end of summer and beginning of autumn.

If it is a Thursday, it means a prosperous year, except for the livestock. This interpretation was given by Ptolemy, theAlexandrian astronomer 367 -283 B.C.duringhis residence in Egypt.... new year’s day dream meaning

Wadi

(Valley) Seeing a ravine or a valley with a dry watercourse in a dream means going on a tiering trip, taking a longjourney, or it could represent an intractable person. Seeing a wadi in a dream denotes good deeds, or making offerings to please God Almighty. Awadi in a dream also represents its dwellers, a tribe from that region, or its plantations. Ifone sees the wadi blossoming with fruit trees, fragrant flowers, a running water course, or if one hears nice words during such a dream, it means that he will rise in station, or mingle with people in power, or receive an appointment in the government, and for a righteous person, it means that miraculous events and blessings will be shown at his hands by God’s leave. Seeing a wadi in a dream also means rain, and that the ravine will be filled with rainwater.

A wadi in a dream also could represent a prison because of the steep mountains surrounding it and the difficulty in crossing it. Seeing oneself in a wadi floating in the air until one reaches a desired altitude in a dream means working for a powerful person.

A wadi in a dream also represents a warrior, a bandit, a highway robber or a lion.

If a wadi obstructs one’sjourney in a dream, it may represent a robbery, heavy rain, or having to face a dangerous person. Ifone is not travelling, then it means distress, adversity, harm, imprisonment, fear, or illness. Crossing a wadi in the wintertime in a dream means escaping from danger. Digging a wadi in a dream means the death of a family member. Falling into a steep wadi in a dream and feeling no pain or incurring no harm from it in a dream means that one will receive a gift from someone in authority or from his superior. Inhabiting a valley with no vegetation in a dream means performing one’s pilgrimage to Mecca.

To wander aimlessly in a wadi in a dream means writing a poem.

Hypnosis And Dreams

Many experiments have been done using hypnosis in connection with dreams. In the early pan of this century Carl Schroetter hypnotised Miss E, a pharmacist, in an attempt to test Freud’s theory of symbol formation. He suggested Miss E would dream of having homosexual inter­course with a female friend, L.

The dream she subsequently reported was ‘1 sit in a small dirty cafe holding a tremendous French newspaper ...

A woman with a strong Yiddish ac­cent—L is Jewish—asks me twice, “Don’t you need any­thing?” I don’t answer . . . she comes a third time . . . I recognise her as my acquaintance. She holds a threadbare suitcase with a sticker on it that reads “For ladies only!” I leave the cafe with her . . . she hangs onto me which I find unpleasant but suffer it . . . Before her house she pulls out an enormous bunch of keys and gives one to me. “1 trust only you with it; it is the key to this case. You might like to use it. Just watch that my husband doesn’t get hold of it.” ‘ The dream contains several of the classical Freudian symbols of sex, such as the suitcase, the key and the phrase For ladies only’. Miss E had not, according to Schroetter, heard or read of Freud’s ideas.

Roffenstein, suspecting Miss E may have known something of Freudian ideas, chose ‘a 28-year-old, totally uneducated nursemaid of lower than average intelligence, who grew up and still lives in an uneducated milieu’. He suggested she dream of intercourse with her father. She reported: ‘I dreamt about my father, as if he had presented me with a great bag and with it he gave me a large key. It was a very large key. It looked like the key to a house. I had a sad feeling. I opened the bag. I snake jumped out against my mouth; I shrieked aloud.

More recent expenments are reponed by Woods and Greenhouse in New Wbrld of Dreams.

The suggestion was made to one subject that as a child she had wet the bed and her mother scolded her. That night she dreamt she fell into a pond in winter and her mother was angry.

An interesting aspect of these experiments is that another subject under hyp­nosis was told the dream and asked what it meant. Without hesitation she said. Oh, that girl must have wet the bed.’ This and other experiments suggest humans have an inherent, al­though perhaps unconscious, ability to understand the lan­guage of dreams. ... hypnosis and dreams dream meaning

A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

Months Of The Year

When dreaming about a particular month, a dreamer should explore some of the outside influences that could have triggered such a dream choice. Upcoming birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, festivities such as Easter or Christmas or special events could be the cause of dreaming about a particular month, as well as other dates that hold a special significance. But there may also be additional reasons why a certain month may appear in a dream.

January

  • The name given to the month of January is derived from the ancient Roman god Janus who presided over the gate to the New Year. Janus protected the Gate of Heaven and was known as the ‘Lord of Beginnings’; he is often symbolized by an image of a face that is simultaneously looking forwards and backwards. This symbolism can easily be associated with the month, as for many the start of a new year suggests out with the old and in with the new. It is the time when many reflect on events of the previous year and make resolutions to redress or improve some aspect of daily life or personal philosophy. As part of the astrological calendar, this is the month of the Zodiac signs of Capricorn (22 December-19 January) and Aquarius (20 January-18 February) and shares their symbolic associations.

February

  • A dream centered on the month of February could signify testing situations that will demand all of your resources, as well as self- discipline and possibly even health concerns. The name ‘February’ is believed to have been derived from the name ‘Februa’, taken from the Roman ‘Festival of Purification’. The root ‘februo’ means ‘I purify by sacrifice.’ Valentine’s Day dreams stand for the celebration of those you care about and may occur if you are not expressing your feelings sufficiently. This is the month of the Zodiac signs of Aquarius (20 January-18 February) and Pisces (19 February-20 March) and shares their symbolic associations.

March

  • Mars was the Roman god of war, and fertility was the inspiration for the name ‘March’, so dreams in which March is the focus may concern conflict or the need to initiate plans or steps towards a desired goal. It is the month of the Zodiac signs of Pisces (19 February-20 March) and Aries (21 March-19 April) and shares their symbolic associations.
  • March is a time of spirituality and the influence of the feminine aspects of nature within all faiths. At the same time, the Zodiac sign of Aries brings the power of the masculine, the sun, the seed, and also the determination and strength to succeed.

April

  • This is the month of the Zodiac signs of Aries (21 March-19 April) and Taurus (20 April-20 May) and shares their symbolic associations.
  • Dreams featuring the month of April may suggest happiness, pleasure and the need to begin working towards your desired goal in life. To dream of April Fool’s Day reveals something foolish done by yourself or someone you know. Images of Easter signify triumph over problems in your waking life. Easter baskets, eggs and bunnies signify optimism and hope for a positive outcome to events.

May

  • This is the month of the Zodiac signs of Taurus (20 April-20 May) and Gemini (21 May-21 June) and shares their symbolic associations.
  • Dreams featuring the month of May tend to signify prosperity, as well as upcoming waves of rejoicing or pleasure and happiness.

June

  • According to the Celtic calendar, this is a time associated with natural healing of the body and of the spirit. When a dream focuses on the month of June, this suggests a time of positive renewal or the desire to begin afresh in some way. This is the month of Zodiac signs of Gemini (21 May-21 June) and Cancer (22 June-22 July) and shares their symbolic associations.

July

  • July is most commonly associated with the healing properties and sanctity of water. This may be due to the fact that July is a month of warmth, of the sun, of scorching heat and the dryness of the land that comes with the dreaded drought. This is the month of Zodiac signs of Cancer (22 June-22 July) and Leo (23 July-23 August) and shares their associations. In dreams, it suggests a time for self-examination and reflection.

August

  • August has historically been considered to be a lucky month and the ideal time to repair mistakes made in the past. This is the month of the Zodiac signs of Leo (23 July-23 August) and Virgo (24 August-22 September) and shares their symbolic associations.

September

  • This is the month of Zodiac signs of Virgo (24 August-22 September) and Libra (23 September-23 October) and shares their symbolic associations. In dreams, September represents a waning period or a winding down.

October

  • At this time of year, perhaps more than any other, according to the Celtic and pagan calendar, the natural and the supernatural were greatly enhanced, with many rituals taking place such as All Hallow’s Eve or Hallowe’en (31 October) This is the month of the Zodiac signs of Libra (24 September-23 October) and Scorpio (24 October-21 November) and shares their symbolic associations. In dreams, October represents a time to unite conflicting aspects within yourself or to reaffirm personal bonds. To dream of harvest festivals suggests the fruits of shared gifts and the inner joy when you reach out to help others.

November

  • This is the month of the Zodiac signs of Scorpio (24 October-21 November) and Sagittarius (22 November-21 December) and shares their symbolic associations. In dreams, November suggests a time to count your blessings, discard the negative and appreciate the positive elements in your life.

December

  • In Celtic traditions, December was a time to keep light alive in the darkness, to maintain the burning fires and was a time for families to reunite as the light began to return following the winter solstice. This is the month of the Zodiac signs of Sagittarius (22 November-21 December) and Capricorn (22 December-19 January) and shares their symbolic associations. In dreams, this month stands for a period or rest, renewal and reflection. Images of Christmas in dreams, including Christmas cards, lights, gifts, trees, ornaments, puddings and stockings, stand for a major spiritual awakening and growth, or the sharing of spiritual gifts and joy.
