See Angel, Ocean. Living life from the depths of the soul and emotions, because fish live in the depths of the sea. Feeling like “a fish in water”—being in one’s element. One feature of fish is their wholeness, since they live exclusively in water (the emotional sphere). Fish are usually voracious eaters and immensely productive. They have no eyelids, sleep with their eyes open, and are always attuned to the world around them. Some fish change their colors according to the circumstances. They are creatures of high sensibility, but they are also cold and can’t be held. In a broader sense, the symbolism of the astrological sign of the fish is also relevant here, where oceanic feelings, trust and mistrust, and the contradictions of willpower and self-defense are at issue. Also, chaos and the absurd belong here, as well as faith—including superstition and disbelief.
If you see yourself fishing, what did you catch? A small fish indicates small Booty: a big fish, big booty.
The fisherman is trying to catch the content of the soul. Since ancient times, in China fish have been a sign of fertility. As far back as Babylonian times, fish appearing in dreams were considered phallic symbols. According to 2nd century dream interpreter Artemidorus, a dead fish represents lost hope.
The fish is also a Christian symbol.
The point when Spring entered the constellation of the fish coincided with the beginning of Christianity.
The salmon of wisdom is part of Irish mythology.
In psychoanalysis, the fish is a symbol of male sexuality- According to Jung, if you are the fish, you can renew yourself in the Water (emotions). Also, according to Jungian psychoanalysis, the fish is the symbol of wholeness. It symbolizes the total person of the dreamer and, more to the point, the emotional side of sexuality. Jung also believed that fish are like thoughts and hunches, which surface from the unconscious.

Since water is symbolic of your emotions, a dream featuring a fisherman suggests your own search for emotional satisfaction. Did you catch a fish or throw it back? If the fish got away, are you being too emotionally reticent in waking life?... The Element Encyclopedia
If you were fishing in your dream, you may be looking for insight into a particular problem in waking life. The dream may also suggest that deep emotions are being brought to the surface. Consider what you were fishing for in your dream; was it compliments, attention or the truth in a difficult or ’fishy’ situation? Did you catch your dream fish in your dream? If you did, it may indicate that you will find that an answer to a long-standing question suddenly pops into your mind. Alternatively, if your catch gasped for breath as it flapped around on the ground, do you feel like a fish out of water in waking life? If it wriggled frantically, could your dream have been drawing your attention to a ’slippery fish’ or elusive person in your real life? If the fish was cold to the touch, could this perhaps refer to someone in your life who is emotionally cold, perhaps even you?
On the other hand, dreams about fishing—particularly ones in which a freshwater fisherman or angler appears—could simply indicate the need for rest and relaxation.
If a fisherman does appear in your dream or you are the fisherman, pay attention to the actions that are performed, as they will help you interpret the dream. Often a fisherman will represent a person, such as a provider, or a concept, such as bravery. This latter is especially the case if he is a deep-sea fisherman. A fishing line refers to a length or measure of spiritual inquiry, a fishing rod signifies a life aspect that can assist you in your spiritual search and a fishing trip symbolizes a desire to gain further information regarding a particular issue. Consider also if you are trying to catch something like a job or a partner in waking life.
If you visit a fish market in your dreams, try to recall the species of fish, the amount you bought and their condition, as a fish market may refer to your own personal spiritual belief system.

All different kinds of people clutter our dream landscape.
The men in your dream may include family members or total strangers. You may dream about your father, son, husband, or friend and should interpret the dream according to its details.
A man, particularly the father figure, may represent collective consciousness and the traditional human spirit. He is the Yang and his energy, when mobilized, creates the earthly realities. Depending on the details of the dream, the masculine figure could be interpreted as the Creator or Destroyer. At times, women dream about men that are strangers to them. These men may represent the women’s unconscious psychic energy. Carl Jung called the stranger in a woman’s dream the “animus.” He represents autonomous, unconscious energy and he plays a vital role in obtaining a deeper understanding of self. At times, a strange and ominous man in men’s dreams could represent their “shadow” or their negativity and darker sides of personality. See also: People, Woman... The Bedside Dream Dictionary
Example: ‘I was walking down the steps of a house, leading into the front area of the basement. I was with a man, perhaps a friend. At the bottom of the steps a psychiatrist was talking to a male client. They were having a session there in the open. I sensed the man’s feelings of embarrassment and exposure. But I felt it was necessary to be thus exposed, i.e. the psychiatrist was purposely holding the session in the open so the man could leam to relax’ (Bernard O). Bernard, a practising therapist, is all of the men in the dream. It portrays the interaction between different parts of himself.
The T walking down the steps is the active, fairly adventurous person Bernard sees himself as; the man following—a fnend—is a man Bernard knows who has sexual difficulties, and represents Bernard’s own sexual hesitations; the psychiatrist is Bernard’s therapeutic skill used in his own life, the male client is Bernard’s difficult feelings when dealing with groups of peo- pie—the public—which he is trying to expose’ or get to know and transform.
Generally, a man depicts an aspect of self—even in a woman’s dream—depending on the activity and character of the man in the dream. Any indication whatsoever in the dream gives a clue to what aspect of self. In the example, the character of the friend, the role of the psychiatrist and the feelings of the client indicate which aspects of Bernard s character are being dealt with. Therefore a man trying to rape a woman would be her fears about sex; a homosexual would depict those feelings; a businessman, one’s work or business abilities; a loving man, one’s feelings about love, and so on.
Older man: father or one’s accumulated experience and wisdom; perhaps even wisdom from the unconscious if man is white haired or holy. Wild, ape, half animal man: urges which have not yet been integrated and socialised, usually pertaining to sexuality in today’s social attitudes or natural social feelings at odds with present attitudes.
Man in woman’s dream: in general, a woman’s ability to question conventional behaviour and social habits; her strength to look with insight into her own life and change it thereby—but not her feeling values, emotions and intuitions, her creative or business ability in the world, and power to be competitive and challenging, her defence against just knowing’ out of the power of her emotions and inbuilt prejudices. Man she knows or loves: feelings, worries about relationship. Dreaming the man is looking at other women or leaving is usually fears about same. Two men: might be a triangle.

Any man appearing in a dream shows an aspect or facet of our character in a recognizable form. Each of us has a repertoire or portfolio of behaviours, some of which are acceptable and some of which are not.

By working with the characteristic, more energy and power becomes available. Even when we are threatened by a negative character trait, we can still access room for improvement.
A man in a dream can identify the shadow for a man, and the animus for a woman.
An older man (if the man is white-haired or holy) can represent the innate wisdom we all have. Such a person can also signify the father in dreams. When a large man appears in our dreams we are usually appreciating the strengths, certainties and protection that our basic beliefs give us.

(1) A male figure may be a symbol of your self; wholeness, completeness; the inner self that represents the ground-plan of your individual psyche. (For Jung on ‘the Self).
(2) On the other hand, it may stand for one half of the whole, woman symbolizing the other half of human wholeness, which is a union of opposites. The male half of the psyche comprises consciousness, reflection, rational intellect, ‘head1 rather than ‘heart’, competitiveness and aggressiveness, analysis and discrimination, purposive activity (rather than passivity or receptiveness), ambition, getting and achieving.
If, however, the figure is in a meditative posture, like a Buddha or

According to Jung, if a woman dreams that she is a man, this represents the rational, competitive, and aggressive side of her personality.

Disaster dreams typically indicate that something is terribly wrong with your life or about to go wrong if the current situation remains unchanged. They will tell you that a job, a relationship, a religion, or a conscious attitude is not good for you and is leading you to crisis.
If the disaster in the dream is specifically manmade and not natural, such as a terrorist attack, or a plane, train, car, or bus crash, this image may be urging you to change an attitude or belief system before the situation in waking life becomes perilous. These dreams are telling you that you are not in a safe place and you need to move away from it.
Oftentimes, the unconscious will use cultural symbols and images to bring to mind some thematic experience or situation. For example, to dream of the attack on the World Trade Center can be symbolic of a tragedy, a horrendous situation, an attack, or the destruction of one’s working environment. Similarly, any form of terrorist attack can be symbolic of an intrusive invasion of your personal space in waking life, a violent clash of opinions or cruel, sadistic and cowardly behavior.
If you dreamed of making a panicstricken call to the emergency services, could your unconscious have been highlighting your fear that an emotional trauma has devastated your world, or is about to, and that you urgently need help? A dream focusing on a disaster in your home may be saying something about your attitude to life. It might be that you are ready to make important changes that will involve destroying what you have built up over the years, or it could be a warning that your present, or planned, actions could prove disastrous in the long run. Much depends on your reaction. Supposing that you dreamed your house was falling down; if you were relieved, unconcerned or walked away from the ruins, you are ready to move on and leave the past behind you.
You may have had a dream that focused on manmade environmental pollution and the disease, destruction, decay and death to which this leads.
If you have had such a dream, the dream is urging you to avoid an attitude, thought or emotion that is not good for you, now or in the future.
Other people’s attitudes and beliefs may also be contaminating the way you think and feel, and this can sometimes be shown in dreams about toxic waste or poisons. On the other hand your dream may be urging you to become more environmentally aware.
If demolition features in the dream, it can highlight either self-inflicted trauma or changes in your life, depending on the circumstances of the dream.

This is any circle or square within which shapes, objects or other symbols appear.
The mandala can be a square garden with round pond in it—square with circle in, etc. It depicts what we have done with our life, what qualities or balance we have achieved through our own effon or self responsibility. It shows whether we have dared meet the darkness and light in our nature and bnng balance, whether we have found the courage to have our boundaries of thought and viewpoint split asunder by a greater vision or despair, and what we have done with the pieces of wonder and pain we have found.

If one could produce a graphic image of the whole of human nature, many different forms might be integrated within an overall shape, perhaps a circle or square. Also, if it were possible to have a visual presentation of a person’s inner world of mind, weaknesses, strengths, order, confusion and quality, each person would appear differently. Some would be internally jumbled, divided and ugly, others symmetrical, integrated and beautiful.
Because the unconscious produces dreams, and because dreams are imagery which give form to the otherwise abstract elements of internal human nature, there anse in some dreams shapes or patterns which depict an overall view of one s own inner condition. Carl Jung drew attention to the circle and square designs in some dreams, calling them man- dalas, and seeing them as representing the nucleus of the human identity. Although we are, in our everyday life, the magical and mysterious process of life, it is difficult for us actually to answer the question ‘Who am I?’ or ‘What am I?’ with any lasting conviction.
The mysterious essence of ourself is met in dreams as a circular or square object or design, as the sun, a flower, a square garden with a round pond in the middle, or a circle with a square or quartered design within it, a circle with a cross within, a revolving or flying cross-shaped object. Classical symbols from all nations use this theme; and we can find it in the round table of King Arthur, in the centre of which the Holy Grail appeared; the healing sand paintings of the Na- vaho Indians, the zodiac; circle dances; stone circles; the Buddhist wheel of birth and death; and so on.
The circle usually symbolises a natural wholeness, our inner life as nature has shaped it.
The square shows wholeness we have helped shape by conscious cooperation with our m- neT world. There are two main reasons why one produces this theme in one’s dreams. It occurs in children or people meeting internal or external shocks, and produces a strengthening of the vulnerable identity in meeting the vaned influences they face. It arises in people who are meeting and integrating the wider life of their being existing beyond the boundaries of their usual interests, or what they allow themselves to experience.
The contact with the self is then pan of an extending of awareness into what was dark or unknown, not only in our own unconscious, but in external life. In touching the nucleus of one’s being in this way, one becomes aware in some measure of the infinite potential of one’s life. There is often an accompanying sense of existence in eternity and the many different mansions’ or dimensions of experience one has within the eternal. See the self under archetypes; shapes. ...

1- The mandala is a sacred shape which is so powerful that it is found in one form or another in most religions. Typically, it is a circle enclosing a square with a symbol in the centre representing the whole of life.
It is mostly used as an aid to meditation.
The principle is that one travels from the outer circle (which stands for the whole of existence) through the creation of matter the square to the centre of existence the central figure. Finally, one moves back out to take one’s place in material existence again.
It is often consciously depicted as an eight- pointed star, and represents both man’s aspirations and his burdens. It often appears in dreams in this form, and can then become a personal symbol of the journey from chaos to order. It has also been found that, in a healing process, this symbol will occur over and over again.
It is seen more frequently in Eastern religions, often as ornate pictures or patterns.
2- Jung judged this figure to be an important part of psychological wholeness.
The word means ‘circle’, and he saw the mandala as being an archetypal expression of the soul. In dreams this figure often appears without the dreamer knowing what it represents.
It is only when it is drawn afterwards that it is recognised as a mandala. This would suggest that it is a true expression of the dreamer’s individuality and of his connection with Unity, whatever lie sees this to be.
3- When ego and individuality are understood, the soul searches for representation.
The expression of wholeness and vet separateness in this figure moves us into a space which enables us to create a whole new concept of the principles of existence. Often, by creating and recreating this figure, we move towards and experience a wholeness and tranquillity which would not otherwise be available.
The particular shape, number of sides, and colours in the mandala will be significant (see Shape, Numbers and Colour).

A mandala is an intricate design, usually of circular or square patterns, used in meditation to focus the mind: One gazes at and concentrates on the center or on a dot within the center of the design.
This meditative concentration brings about a state of mind in which healing, harmony, and order can be restored. In Jungian psychology, mandalas represent the Self. To dream of a mandala may signal that it is time for the dreamer to look inward, or it may be a reflection of the positive changes the dreamer is experiencing in waking life.... Dream Symbols in The Dream Encyclopedia
From a Sanskrit word meaning ’magic circle or disc’, a mandala is a circular visual representation that is used as a focus point for the practice of meditation. When creating a mandala, the artist attempts to coordinate their personal circle with the universal circle, reflecting how their life fits into the larger whole. Although the mandala form is often associated with Tibetan monk artists, who use them as an aid to meditation and visualization, and Navaho Indians, who create them out of multicolored sand as a formal geometrical expression of sacred vibrations, mandalas transcend culture and religion, time and place.
When a person concentrates on a mandala they are attempting to approach a higher plane of consciousness and, according to Jung, they are the ultimate symbols for uniting our inner and outer selves, being an archetypal expression of the soul. Jung found that the integrative properties of the mandala possessed considerable benefits in psychotherapy; by drawing mandalas, patients could impose order upon their inner confusion
A mandala is typically a circle enclosing a square with a symbol in the center representing the whole of life. In dreams, it can appear in many ways: as a square garden with a round pond, a square with a circle in the middle, a painting with a circle and so on. It can often appear in dreams without you realizing what it represents and it is only when drawn afterwards that it is recognized as a mandala. This suggests that it is a true expression of your individuality. It can also appear as an eightpointed star that represents both your aspirations and your burdens, and indicates what you have achieved with your life and what you have learned from your experience, both good and bad. The mandala may often appear in dreams when your waking life feels confusing or difficult; your dreaming mind conjures it as a symbol of the journey from chaos to order.... The Element Encyclopedia
Mandalas are symmetrical figures, usually square or circular and with a central point. Some are purely geometrical, others arc not - for example, a flower (as in rose windows in Christian churches or the lotus in Indian tradition). Psychologically they may function as symbols of the self - that is, the complete, whole self; human fullness; the fundamental order of the psyche; the union of opposite psychic qualities or forces.
(1) A mandala in a dream is a reminder that order is possible - because already latent - in the psyche. ‘Remove’ the disturbing elements - that is, bring them into harmony with the other parts of the psyche - and order will be restored.
(2) If a disarranged mandala appears in a dream, this will indicate that the healing - whole-making - power of the (unconscious) psyche is temporarily out of action. Some destructive attitude - a guilt-and-anger or inferiority complex, or whatever - is blocking the flow of the natural healing powers.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols

1- In olden times the mandrake root was taken to symbolise man. It was often used in magical ceremonies, and thus became significant in the same way that a voodoo doll can be significant. When the mandrake root or a manikin is recognised in a dream, we are linking in with our own wish to harm other people and with our conflict with someone else. Interestingly enough, the mandrake root is also a symbol of the Great Mother (see Introduction), and therefore represents feminine aspects. So, in witchcraft, the witch was in fact linking with the destructive powers of her own Self.
2- The significance of mandrake within a dream is that perhaps of word association. We are not necessarily dreaming of the root itself, but are trying to make sense of some aspect of the personality around us that appears not to be fully formed in some way.

In some ways our personality or identity is like a plant which feeds from the most unlikely material to produce beautiful leaves and flowers.
The plant can transform manure into living leaves and petals. Our identity feeds on experience and information, some of which may appear uninviting, painful or unwholesome. In fact our experience may be all of these, and be depicted in dreams as manure, and if not put to our roots—our process of becoming aware of things in an intensely felt manner which links feelings with intellectual insight—remain a disintegrating influence. Learning processes which pile intellectual information on children or adults without helping them to allow their deep feeling responses, are piling manure on the psyche while cutting off its roots. Personal disintegration is the result. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

So potent is this myth that the word siren is today used to describe a heartless, treacherous but irresistibly seductive woman.

She told me the only love I could receive from her was that which I gave to a human woman. Inasmuch as I gave love to a human female, she would love me. She was all women’ (Andrew P).
The example shows Andrew meeting his archetypal conception of a woman, his ideal. But he understands that you cannot love an ideal. His love must find a real woman. Through a real love he would call love from out of himself, out of his unconscious reserve.

(1) A man’s dream of a woman may simply express sexual desire (but see (4) below). Recurring pornographic dream-encounters may mean the dreamer’s feelings - including his moral feelings - are still at a primitive level of development.
(2) The woman may be, or represent your mother, in which case you need to pay attention to the way you react to her in the dream, or what she says.
If the woman has a negative ‘feel’, remember that loosening strong emotional ties to your mother may be a precondition for establishing your own identity.
(3) For a man, a woman may represent your anima, the (unconscious) feminine side of your personality. In this case the woman may be either friendly or threatening, which means that your anima is either introducing you to the hitherto neglected parts of yourself, or trying to lead you astray from your true ‘destiny5. The threatening anima may be represented by a femme fatale, an alluring but dangerous siren.
(4) If the woman in a man’s dream is a real-life acquaintance and the dream-encounter is erotic, the significance may be as in (1) above; or the woman may be a projection of your repressed anima, in which case the message is probably that what you ought to be relating to in real life is your own anima, not the woman.
