Dream Symbol Pig

 Thanks again, Google Images!

Thanks again, Google Images!

What did your dream-pig look like, and what was it doing?

What was your reaction to it, how were you feeling?

We often call someone a pig if they're behaving in a stupid or greedy way. Pigs wallow in mud, make grunting noises while eating, and are easily associated with dirt and basic desires. 

Joseph Henderson in "Man and His Symbols" describes a woman's dream of "water pigs": 

These are "water pigs", unknown to her as a species. They therefore would carry the meaning of a special type of animal, one that can live in two environments, in water or on the earth. This is the universal quality of the animal as a symbol of transcendence.

Bathing or bathrooms generally point towards your psychic and mental arenas. They may indicate a cleansing, both physical and emotional. 

What condition is the room in? 

How about the water? 

Are you on your own or sharing the bath with someone?  

For the sake of mental stability and even physiological health, the unconscious and the conscious must be integrally connected and thus move on parallel lines. If they are split apart or "dissociated," psychological disturbance follows. In this respect, dream symbols are the essential message carriers from the instinctive to the rational parts of the human mind, and their interpretation enriches the poverty of consciousness so that it learns to understand again the forgotten language of the instincts.  - Carl Jung, Approaching the Unconscious (from: Man and his Symbols)

Watching a movie indicates you're preparing a new reality for yourself. It may also be a sign you're ready for more change, entertainment, or drama in your life.  

Going to the cinema shows you a piece of your life's movie, as a reflection of where you are at the moment. Are you wandering around in the dark trying to find your seat? Are you staying for the whole feature presentation, or leaving before the end is revealed? 

"Attending the theatre (which is an imitation of real life) is a popular way of evading an active part in life's drama. The spectator can identify with the play, yet continue to pander to his fantasies. This kind of identification permitted the Greeks to experience catharsis, much as the psycho-drama initiated by the American Psychiatrist J. L. Moreno is now used as a therapeutic aid."

- Jolande Jacobi, Man and His Symbols, p.334)

Dream Symbol Wedding

Is it yours or someone else's?  

Are you wearing the wedding dress? Then you may be trying to sort out your feelings about your own relationship.  

Is someone else wearing the dress? Then you may be feeling insecure.  

If people are dressed in white or happy colors, it's a good sign for joy. Dark clothes - not so much. 

If the man you're wearing is old and wrinkly, you may have to prepare for illness.

In the heat of summer, it's no wonder - who wouldn't love to cool off jumping into the refreshing sea somewhere?  

If you're dreaming of bathing suits, the one thing you want to pay attention to is the design - what does it cover, what does it show? 

Some suggest seeing yourself in swim wear hints at the erotic image you have of yourself.  

It may also be an indication that you're longing for authentic emotional or sensual connections.

What is the paper being used for?

What condition is it in?  If it's dirty, your reputation may be suffering. 

Are you cutting it?  In that case there may be a separation in your future. 

Are you tearing or burning it? This may be a sign to bring something to a swift close - get it over and done with.  

If you're writing or drawing on it, your subconscious may be trying to figure something out.

Dreaming of a brother-figure may represent rivalry and kingship at the same time.  

Is it an actual brother, or one you wish you had?  

Older or younger? 

What were you doing? 

An older brother may symbolize wisdom and experience, a younger one vulnerability and immaturity. 

Do you wish for someone to be in your corner, defend you, take your side? Do you wish to be more extraverted?

Dream Symbol Dance

Are you dancing alone or with a partner?

Are you asking or being asked?

Are you watching or participating?

In general, dancing implies inner harmony and spontaneous expression of feelings.

If you're dancing alone, you may be wishing for someone to pay more attention to you.

If you see children dance, it's a sign of joy; older people dancing are an omen for successful business.
