Dream Interpretation (now with rune casting)!


I don't think this is the right forum for this, but I also don't think there's really a right forum for it. This is as close as I can get.


I love hearing about people's dreams and telling them about mine! It's often hilarious when we wake up in the morning and go, "What the heck was THAT all about?!" Dream interpretation is something I got into not long ago, but it's fun. I like it. And so I figured I would look for people to tell me their dreams so that I can practice on them! I'll never swear to you up and down that I'm right or that I even know what I'm doing. It's all in good fun!


Here's a sample of two of my dreams that I analyzed:

I had a dream that I was working at a pet store, and there was a really cute guy there. We were flirting back and forth, and when he finally pointed out that we were obviously attracted to each other and should go on a date, I suddenly remembered that I was married. Like, wtf, I forgot? Sometimes when we have dreams like this, it means we're longing for a closer connection with people. Not necessarily that we're looking to cheat on our significant others. This makes sense to me, as I have very few IRL friends, and I rarely get to see all but one of them. And he's more hubs's friend than mine, really.

And then I had another dream that I was living with my parents again. And the house was wildly haunted. Again. I have these dreams all the time. In dreams, ghosts usually symbolize unfinished business. The fact that the dreams always terrify me seems to suggest that I am maybe afraid I missed out by leaving home so soon. It was a quick decision I made to leave. I went from "I'll be coming back to school from spring break" to "I'm dropping out and moving two states away, away from everyone I know". It worked out, but I think I do feel like I left a lot of people behind, and a lot of memories in that house.

Here's my weird dream from last night:

I dreamed DH and I adopted another cat (a 2 year old grey tabby male) that behaved just fine until we got him home. Then he began repeatedly trying to mate with my older cat (14 year old female, poor thing) and she'd have none of it so I had to break them apart several times. This damn tabby's claws would get stuck in my clothes (or skin) every time I'd pull him off her, and finally after the third or fourth time I threw him across the room and he landed on his feet and dashed off. Seconds later I hear yowling and I go after the cat to find that he's attempting to eat a throw pillow from off the couch: it's the same size as him! I run up and pick him up with one arm, using the other to try and yank this pillow out of his throat.

And then I wake up. wth?!

I'm curious to see if any sense can be made of this, and what my subconscious might be trying to say to me (if anything)

Cats usually represent the desire or urge to care for someone, or even sometimes the need for sex or to reproduce. When they show up in the dreams of women, they can also represent fertility. Since the cat in the dream was unpredictable or maybe came across as threatening and uncontrollable, it might mean that you're feeling threatened as a woman in regards to your fertility. Given that you've just had a loss, I think this might be pretty accurate.

Isn't it wild how the craziest dreams can somehow turn into something that makes sense on such a personal level?

Thank you GP!

Following this thread! I've had loads of weird dreams lately but right now can't remember a single one! Lol. I will have to wait for another one to come along to make use of your wisdom.

Lol, I don't think it's really wisdom. Just me, my intuition, and a book I sometimes reference.

So interesting GP! I have had several of those types of 'meet another guy and sorta get together with him before remembering I'm married' type dreams, so I was really intrigued about what you said. I think for me there is also a lot of truth in the connection thing; I have some really great friends but I don't see them as often as I'd like because except for one, they're all parents. And I do want to make more friends for DH and I as a couple.

What do attics mean GP? I have a recurring dream involving my mum's attic, and it's full of stuff and I can't really remember all the details now but I think there's often some kind of threat (from a monster). Sometimes the attic is leaking. I also often dream about having to pack up a room/house/my personal effects at short notice and it's difficult trying to decide what to take or to get everything packed. I end up with bags of stuff and there's still so much left over.

Very keen to hear what you think!

Attics usually, as I'm sure you can imagine, represent your memories and past experiences. If it's a full jumble of stuff, it might mean you're feeling disorganized and need to spend some time rearranging your mental space. Ghosts or monsters in the attic usually represent a bad memory, maybe one you're trying to repress.

Homes can represent yourself, like your mind or personality. To dream of packing up to leave can symbolize that you're exploring new parts of yourself.

Maybe all the stuff you have leftover is some of the junk from your past that was in your attic in the other dreams. Maybe you're growing and changing as a person, and you have a lot of clutter that can be done away with, or needs to be dealt with for you to move on. And maybe the monster is representing your reluctance to face the bad memories you have.
