ANCHOR

An anchor dragging through water or sand represents things that weigh you down, and hold you back.

An anchor holding firm in a torrential sea speaks of your personal need for security and stability.

If you haven’t reinforced your foundations lately, do so.

Anchors are also connected to the sea and sailing (see Boat, Water). In earlier times when ships carried valuable goods to port, such an arrival was heartily welcomed. So, sailors and things associated with their trade became “lucky.” Perhaps your ship is soon to “come in” and stay for a while!

Safety or improved vitality. In ancient Egypt, an anchor cross became a variation of the ankh, the emblem of life, around 4-5 C.E. This emblem was used frequently as a seafaring amulet.

A ship that lacks an anchor represents being adrift, going from one idea or goal to another without ever accomplishing anything.... The Language of Dreams

CADAVER

Vision: Seeing a carcass in a rotting state can evoke disgust, dislike, or grief. Either an event provoking such a response is going to happen soon, or the dream is suggesting that letting go of a situation or a person is long overdue. Dragging a dead corpse in a suitcase: you are still earning around things from the past—things that “died a long time ago,” or your conscience is bothering you. Looking at a dead body: old problems will be solved successfully.

The dream also suggests that a wedding or birth is imminent. Seeing yourself as the cadaver: a great burden has been lifted, you will live to a ripe old age. See Skeleton.

Depth Psychology: A cadaver represents past issues that need to be dealt with.

The corpse you’re rigidly holding onto may be old conventions. Have your feelings for another person turned “cold”? Are you afraid of Death? Do you wish that someone else were dead? A rotten cadaver—in the context of other images in the dream—indicates that a current situation is at a “dead end,” but that something new will come along.... Dreamers Dictionary

RIBBONS

Vision: Seeing ribbons in a dream: you might soon learn from or meet new friends. Dragging endless ribbons around: you have too many financial responsibilities or debts.

The color of the ribbons also plays a role (see the chapter on “Colors in Dreams”).

A ribbon blowing in the wind means good luck and success!

Depth Psychology: Ribbons are symbols of many things: “tying the knot,” “my hands are tied.” Have you already “tied the knot”—or would you like to? Do you have friendly ties to someone? Are you all tied up?... Dreamers Dictionary

TAIL

Symbol: The tail is a phallic symbol.

Vision: Seeing a curly tail: you love to tease other people and play practical jokes. Seeing an animal with a long tail: many difficulties lie ahead; everything is dragging out. Holding an animal by the tail: you are “putting the cart before the horse”! Watching an animal wag its tail: happiness is ahead.

Depth Psychology: The tail is usually a sign of sexual needs, instincts, and urges, but also of vigor, and vitality. See the chapter on “Colors in Dreams—Black.”... Dreamers Dictionary

WOOD

Vision: Watching someone splitting logs: bad news or even a death. Looking for wood: you may experience sorrow and sad conditions. Cutting wood: hard work must come before a reward. Working in a wood shop is a very good sign and means positive changes ahead. Carving a piece of wood: you have hidden artistic talents. Throwing wood in the fire: you tend to be wasteful in several areas in your life. Dragging wood around: be prepared for a downturn in your financial situation. See Beam.

Depth Psychology: Wood is a symbol of the habits, opinions, and ideas that you have been raised with; they are a part of your personality.

A dream about wood is a challenge: think critically about your traits (or they will become “petrified”). Begin now building a new life (like building new furniture from old wood). Is the wood in the dream still green or dried and knotty? Is the wood already decaying”? If it is—it is high time to start building something new!... Dreamers Dictionary

OX

For obvious reasons, the ox is a symbol of sacrifice, suffering, patience, and work. It also indicates sure but slow actions, which can have both positive and negative connotations.

Symbol of physical strength—though docile and subjected to reason—the ox occupied in ancient Egyptian religion a key place: Apis, of bovine appearance, was the god of fertility. According to modern esoteric interpretation, dreaming of oxen signifies that the subject feels obedient; eating it, loss and suffering; letting them graze, happiness; to see them yoked to plow augurs success and profits; and to see them dragging a cart, emergence of influential friends and professional unions....

CHASM / ABYSS

If the deep, precipitous sides of a chasm or large hole threaten to engulf and swallow you up in a dream, or if an abyss suddenly opens up in front of you, transforming a previously pleasant scene into a terrifying one, could your unconscious have been warning you that your position in waking life is not as stable as you might think and that you could be facing unexpected mishaps or pitfalls? Chasms and holes in dreams always suggest an element of the unknown or something in some way risky, and they urge the dreamer to make a decision one way or another in waking life. Perhaps you dreamed of teetering on the brink of a ravine, petrified that you would lose your footing? Such a dream may be warning you that you are in danger of falling into an emotional black hole, out of which you feel powerless to emerge. Also, because the earth is a symbol of the archetypal mother, devouring chasms may represent a devouring maternal figure in your life, intent on dominating you or dragging you under....

SHAKY, SLIPPERY AND SOLID GROUND

A dream of standing on solid ground may mirror your own feelings of groundedness in daily life, but a dream in which the ground gives way under your feet or you have to dodge pitfalls or open manhole covers mirrors your current sense of insecurity in waking life. When the earth opens up in your dream, consider what it is you are afraid of falling into, or what might open up for all to see? If you lose your balance in your dream and fall into a huge pit or hole, are you on the verge of ‘putting your foot in it’ or making a huge blunder (’being wrong footed’) in real life? If you find yourself slipping and stumbling in your dream and are covered in mud, do you feel as if you are making mistakes and your reputation has been dragged through the mud, or have you been the victim of mud-slinging or bad words in the waking world.

Alternatively, do you feel somehow soiled and grubby? If your dream depicted a pig happily rolling in the mud, do you need to take a more down-to-earth approach in waking life? If your dream depicted you being sucked into the ground or into mud, do you feel caught in a situation that is draining you and about which you feel powerless to do anything? Ask yourself who, or what, the mud or sand in the dream may have represented. Is anyone, or anything, in your life dragging you down? Or have you become a prisoner of your own inhibitions, so that you are stuck in the mud?

If you find yourself off the ground in your dream, this may suggest that you are losing connection with your roots of family or culture, or living in a state of mind that does not connect you with everyday reality. This lack of grounding may also be occasionally shown as being on a high building. Finally, if the earth is soft and difficult to walk on, you are probably finding your present life hard to deal with. Negative emotions are bogging you down. But if the earth is dry and firm, then you are feeling on firm ground as far as relationships and creativity are concerned. See also DISASTERS.... The Element Encyclopedia

INSECURITY

There may be areas of your waking life in which you feel insecure or unsure of yourself. You may be aware of some of these areas but in other cases you may be repressing your anxiety. Repressing any emotion is damaging and to grow stronger emotionally you should try to recognize and understand it. Dreams can help you with this process. Dreams in which you missed a bus or plane or miss an appointment may be reflecting your fear of being late. They may also be suggesting feelings of uncertainty in your waking life.

If someone makes you late, that person may be part of the reason for your insecurity.

If you are angry with yourself in your dream, you may be angry with yourself about missing opportunities in waking life.

Any dream in which your safety is threatened by natural disasters, such as floods, storms or earthquakes, may be a sign of feelings of insecurity in waking life. Scan your dream for any clues as to who or what is dragging you down, killing you or giving you reason to hope. Is there a lighthouse, lifeboat or coastguard in sight? Dreams in which you are abroad and unable to understand the language or culture are classic symbols of uncertainty about new situations in your waking life, as are dreams in which you are constantly outbid in an auction. Try to identify what you were bidding for as it might help you understand what is worrying or bothering you. Dreams in which you consult a therapist, psychiatrist, psychologist, counselor or fortune teller are telling you that you are not feeling as in control of a particular situation in your waking life as you feel you ought to. You may also feel unsure about who to turn to for advice.... The Element Encyclopedia

WATCH / CLOCK

If a timepiece appeared in your dream, it is important to remember how you felt during and after the dream as it will suggest the way in which you allocate time in your life. Were the hands moving slowly or quickly? Was the timepiece telling you to speed up or slow down? The type of clock or watch is also important. Was it old-fashioned or modern? Dreams of clocks or watches can also suggest that you rely too heavily on clock time instead of enjoying and experiencing life as it happens.

If your dreaming mind zoomed in on a watch or clock, this could also be a reminder to make the most of your time and not to waste it.

If you keep checking a clock or a watch in your dream, this suggests anxiety and worry about some future event.

If you don’t feel this to be the case, your unconscious may have conjured this panic-stricken theme to urge you to prepare better for a future event or opportunity that may soon present itself in waking life. For example, have you done enough study to pass your driving theory test? Alternatively, your dream may have indicated frustration and regret at your inability in the past to make the most of an opportunity when it was presented to you.

If you dreamed that a watch or clock slowed down, this could reflect your feeling that events are moving slowly in your waking life or that time is dragging. Alternatively, the symbol of a watch may indicate your ticking heart, so if the clock stops or slows down, this may suggest either an emotional standstill or problems with your cardiovascular system. According to ancient dream-lore and superstition, when a clock stops, somebody will die but your dream will almost certainly have a different meaning. In the symbolic language of dreams, clocks and watches reflect your emotional state and a stopped clock or a clock that is broken may indicate emotional blockages or standstills, and a clock whose hands race out of control may indicate feelings run amok.

If you dreamed of a stopwatch, this highlights your sense of feeling pressured or working against the clock.

If you are a woman dreaming of ticking clocks, such a dream may indicate your biological clock. Dreams that focus on timepieces may also have been measuring the passage of your lifespan and the ticking clock could simply be a reminder that the seconds of your life are ticking away and there is still much for you to do. Watching the clock in your dreams suggests that you need to make time work for you. A clock tower combines this with a phallic form to offer an image of courage and determination. Evoking great occasions, the chimes of a clock tower may relate to a momentous personal or national event, such as a marriage or a coronation.... The Element Encyclopedia

VEHICLE

As well as indicating the manner in which you are progressing towards your goals or what is driving you forward in waking life, dream vehicles tell us whether we are in control of our lives or being driven by something or someone else. So if any vehicle appears in your dream, pay attention to the identity of the driver and try to make a connection to your waking life.

If you dream of a truck, much of the symbolism associated with cars also applies, but since trucks are often associated with business and work your dream may have hinted at the progress you are making in your working life.

If you dreamed of a rubbish truck, your unconscious may have been urging you to get rid of emotional pressures that are dragging you down. A dream of a taxi suggests a quick and direct means to your goal, but bear in mind that there is a price to pay for the trip. Are you prepared to pay it?... The Element Encyclopedia

WALKING

Walking is a classic symbol of your thought processes or progress in life; the surrounding landscape will give you a clue as to the meaning of the dream.

If you shake dust away from your shoes as you are walking, this suggests that you are breaking successfully from the past. Dust is a symbol of the earth and if you are gathering dust on your clothes, shoes or in your hands as you walk, you may be thinking about the approaching of old age. A dream limp may suggest your movement is being crippled or restricted in some way in waking life.

Always consider how you were moving in a dream and try to make the connection to your attitude in waking life at present. Are you walking purposely in your dream and do you know where you are heading? If you can answer positively to both of these questions, this suggests a sense of direction and purpose in life. The opposite is true if you are lost.

If you were skipping or dancing, you are feeling carefree but if you are dragging your feet, this may suggest reluctance. Tripping or stumbling suggests making a mistake; jumping, taking a short cut; crawling, humiliation or extreme hardship. And if you could not move at all, your dreaming mind may be reflecting your sense of being at a complete standstill in your waking life as a result of your indecision.

Running in a dream suggests impatience to reach a destination. It can also indicate a desire to please others or to run away from them. See also ACCIDENTS, ACTION AND ADVENTURES.... The Element Encyclopedia
