THUNDER

(Curse; Omen; Policeman; Warning sign) In a dream, thunder without rain means a scare, a warning or an ultimatum. It also represents good promises, gracious orders, or the sound of drums. Seeing thunder in a dream means repayment of one’s debts, and for a sick person, it means recovering from his illness. Thunder, lightening and rain in a dream represent fear for a traveller, or the greed of a merchant. Hearing about an awesome blast in a distant land in a dream means that the dwellers of that place will be struck with a major calamity or sudden mass casualties.

The sound of thunder in a dream represents a murder, a fight, a dispute, an argument, lack of religious attendance, loss of money, or the release of a prisoner. Athunderstorm with rain when needed in a dream represents a good harvest for that year. Hearing a thunderous sky without seeing the lightening in a dream means an assassination, deception, falsehood or slander. Hearing the sound of thunder in a dream also means being reprimanded by a higher authority. There are no benefits in hearing the sound of thunder in the darkness without seeing lightening in the dream, this would be interpreted as apostasy or disloyalty. This can be particularly true when it is accompanied with an earthquake.

If one hears thunder in its season in a dream, it means good news and blessings. Otherwise, out of its usual season, thunder in a dream represents an army on the move, or a foreign occupation of a country. Hearing the sound of thunder in a dream also represents hymns, praising God Almighty, glorifying Him, or it could mean a sickness, fear, deafness, or the sound of drums in a wedding.

If the one seeing the dream is an atheist, it means that he will be guided and have faith in God Almighty.

If he is a sinner, it means that he will repent for his sins. Hearing the roaring of thunder in a dream on the first day of October means death. Ifit is heard during the first six days of that month, it means benefits, or lower prices, but if it is heard near the end of the month, then it means a plague or a disaster. Hearing the sound of thunder at any other time during the month of October in a dream means evil.

If it is heard during the month of November in a dream, it means blessings for the land, prosperity, the spreading of God’s words in a new land, the falling of a comet in a populated area, the death of a leader, a pollution that will devastate bird life, or a heavy rainstorm with limited damages. Ifthe sound of thunder is heard during the first ten days of December in a dream, it means the death of famous people within the Western hemisphere, inflation, rising prices, degradation of social behavior, decrease in harvest, inflation, or playing dirty politics. Hearing the sound of thunder during the last seven days of December in a dream means that the winter will be cold and dry, though the 4;Jo forthcoming springwill be cooland wet.

Ifthis dream is witnessed during the last week of the month of January, then it represents a solar eclipse, or the death of a Western leader, a plague, or the birth of a planet that signifies the destruction of a great city on earth. Hearing the sound of thunder on the first day ofFebruary in a dream means a good harvest, lowering or stabilization of prices, discovering a new disease in the East, death in the seas, heavy rains in Mecca, fear, devastation and famines in Ethiopia, or that a Western leader will move his armies to the East and control the land for a short period of time. Hearing the sound of thunder during the first six days of March in a dream means good harvest, lowering of prices, stabilization of the market and prosperity. Hearing the sound of thunder at the end of March in a dream means famines, destruction, or that a swarm oflocusts may devastate the lands, or it could mean a drought that will kill African cattle. Also in this type of dreams, ifthe sound ofthunder is heard on the twenty first day ofApril, it means that Western armies will drive East and establish military bases there.

If the first of April happens to be a Sunday, then March will be a month of great fear and disturbances in the East, meanwhile, a conflict between the Western armies will end by the death of a Western leader and the defeat of his army. Ifthe dream is seen on the eleventh day of April, it may mean that earthquakes or cyclones will devastate many countries.

Islamic Dream Interpretation

FAMILY

From our family we leam most of the positive and negative patterns of relationship and attitudes towards living, which we carry into daily events. Father’s uncertainty in deal­ing with people, or his anxiety in meeting change, may be the roots of our own difficulties in those areas.

If our mother is unable to develop a feeling contact with us, we may lack the confidence to meet our emotions.

Our maturation as a man or woman calls us in some way to meet and integrate our childhood desire, which includes sexual desire for our parent of the opposite sex, and rivalry with, mingled with dependence on, the parent of the same sex. Even a missing parent, the mother or father who died or left, is a potent figure internally.

An absence of a father’s or mother’s love or presence can be as traumatic as any power­fully injuring event. Our parents in our dreams are the image (full of power and feeling) of the formative forces and experi­ences of our identity. They are the ground, the soil, the bloody carnage, out of which our sense of self emerged. But our iden­tity cannot gain any real independence while still dominated by these internal forces of our creation. Heraclitus said we cannot swim in the same river twice; attempting to repeat or compete with the vinues of a parent is a misapprehension of the true nature of our own personality. Sec individuation.

Family group: The whole background of experience which makes up our values and views. This background is made up of thousands of different obvious and subtle things such as social status; amount of books in the home; how parents feel about themselves; how they relate to life outside the family; whether dominant roles are encouraged; what nationality par­ents are; what unconscious social attitudes surround the fam­ily (i.e. the master and servant, or dominating employer and subservient employee, roles which typified England at the turn of the century still colour many attitudes in the UK). Simply put, it is our internal ‘family’ of urges and values; the overall feeling tone of our family life—security, domination, whatever it was, the unconscious coping patterns of the fam­ily.

Parents together in dream: our general wisdom, back­ground of information and experience from which we make important decisions or gain intuitive insights. Parents also de­pict the rules and often irrational disciplinary codes we learnt as a child which still speak to us from within, and perhaps pass on to our own children without reassessment. These in­clude everything from ‘Don’t speak with your mouth full’ to the unspoken Masturbation is unholy/

Dead parent in dream: the beginning of independence from parent; repression of the emotions they engendered in us, our emotions regarding our parent’s death; feelings about death. See dead people dreams.

Example: ‘My father was giving me and another woman some medicine. Something was being forced on us. I started to hit and punch him in the genitals and, when he was facing the other way, in the backside. I seemed to be just the right height to do this and I had a very angry feeling that I wanted to hurt him as he had hurt me’ (Audrey V). Hurting, burying , killing parent: in the example Audrey’s height shows her as a child. She is releasing anger about the attitudes and situations her father forced down her throat’.

To be free of the intro­verted restraints and ready made values gathered from our parents, at some time in our growth we may kill or bury them. Although some people arc shocked by such dreams, they are healthy signs of emerging independence. Old myths of killing the chief so the tribe can have a new leader depict this pro­cess. When father or mother are dead’ in our dream, we can inherit all the power gained from whatever was positive in the relationship. Seeing parent drunk, incapable, foolish: another means of gaining independence from internalised values or stultifying drives to ‘honour’ or admire father or mother.

father

Generally positive: authority; ability in the external world; family or social conventions, how we relate to the ‘doer’ in us; physical strength and protectiveness; the will to be. Generally negative: introvened aggression; dominance by fear of other people’s authority, uncaring sexual drive; feelings of not being loved. See father under archetypes; man.

mother

Generally positive: feelings; ability in relationships; uniting spirit of family; how we relate to feelings in a relation­ship; strength to give of self and nunure; intuition. Generally negative: will based on irrational likes and dislikes; opinion generated by anxiety or jealousy; domination by emotions; lack of bonding. See Great Mother under archetypes; woman.

siblings and children

Whether brother, sister, daughter or son (see below in this entry), the most general use in our dreams is to depict an aspect of ourself. However it is almost universal to believe with great conviction that our dream is about the person in our dream.

A mother seeing a son die in her dream often goes through great anxiety because there lurks in her a sense of it being a precognitive dream. Vinually everyone at some time dreams about members of their close family dying or being killed—lots of mothers dream this, and their chil­dren live till 80. But occasionally children do die. Is the dream then precognitive, or is it coincidental?

Example: ‘I was walking along a rather dusty track carrying my younger son who would be around 10 months old and I was feeling rather tired. Suddenly I met a man who stopped to talk to me and commented I looked rather weary carrying the baby. He said, come with me and look over this wall and you will see such a sight that will gladden your hean. By standing on tiptoe I could just see over the wall and the sight I beheld took my breath away, it was so beautiful’ (Johan E). Here Johan’s son depicts the weight of responsibility she feels.

The beauty is her own resources of strength in motherhood.

Example: ‘I have just given binh to twins and they lay on the floor. We started to care for them. My mother took them to the doctor for his advice while I went to see my married sister who has two children. I met them there with the twins so that my sister could give her opinion on the babies. She had recent experience of childbirth and could tell us if the babies were good specimens’ (Miss E). Miss E has no children of her own, so she is uncertain of her own capacity to have and raise them.

The mother depicts her own mothering abilities, which seek confidence from an authority figure. Her sister is her own nearest experience of childbirth. So out of what she has leamt from observing her sister, she is assessing her own qualities.

Most often the family member depicts the qualities in our­self which we feel are part of the character of the person dreamt of. So the passionate one in the family would depict our passions; the intellectual one our own mind, the anxious one our hesitations. Use the questions in dream processing to define this. Having done this, can you observe what the dream depicts? For Miss E it would be questions regarding mother­hood.

Example: ‘My daughter told me the only positive part of my work in a helping profession was with a woman who had turned from it to religion. There followed a long and powerful interchange in which I said she had as yet no mind of her own. She was dominated by her mother’s anxiety, and the medical rationalism of her training. When she had dared to step beyond her own anxieties to integrate the lessons of her own life, then I would listen again’ (Desmond S). Desmond was divorced and struggling with his own pain and guilt about leaving his daughter while still a teenager. His daughter de­picts this conflict between his feelings and his rational self.

brother

Oneself, or the denied pan of self, meeting whatever is met in the dream; feelings of kinship; sense of rivalry, feel­ings about a brother. Woman’s dream, younger brother: out­going but vulnerable self; rivalry. Woman’s dream, older brother, authority, one’s capable outgoing self. Man’s dream, younger brother: vulnerable feelings; oneself at that age. Man’s dream, older brother: experience; authority, feelings of persecution. See boy; man. Idioms: big brother, brothers in arms; blood brother.

sister

Feeling self, or the lesser expressed pan of self; rival; feelings about a sister. Man s dream, younger sister: vulnera­ble emotions; rival for love of parents. Man’s dream, older sister: capable feeling self; feelings of persecution. Woman’s dream , younger sister: one’s experiences at that age; vulnera­ble feelings, rival for parents’ love. Woman’s dream, older sister: capable feeling self. See girl; woman. Idioms: sisters under the skin.

daughter

One’s relationship with the daughter, the daughter, or son, can represent what happens in a marnage between husband and wife.

The child is what has arisen from the bonding, however momentary, of two people. In dreams the child therefore is sometimes used to depict how the relation­ship is faring. So a sick daughter might show the feelings in the relationship being ‘ill’.

In a mother’s dream: often feelings of suppon or compan­ionship; feelings of not being alone in the area of emotional bonds; or one’s feeling area; responsibility; the ties of parent­hood; oneself at that age; one’s own urges, difficulties, hurts, which may still be operative. Also a comparison; the mother might see the daughter’s youth, opportunity, and have feelings about that. So the daughter may represent her sense of lost opportunity and youth—even envy, competition in getting the desire of a man.

In a father’s dream: one’s feeling self, the feelings or diffi­culties about the relationship with daughter; the struggles one’s own feeling self goes through to mature, how the sexual feelings are dealt with in a family—occurs especially when she starts courting; sister, parental responsibility; one’s wife when younger. Someone else’s daughter: feelings about one’s own daughter, feelings about younger women.

Example: 1 am standing outside a supermarket with heavy bags wearing my mac, though the sun is warm. My daughter and two friends are playing music and everyone stops to lis­ten. I start to wnte a song for them, but they pack up and go on a bus whilst I am still writing. I am left alone at the bus stop with my heavy burden of shopping, feeling incredibly unwanted’ (Mrs F). Such dreams of the daughter becoming independent can occur as soon as the child starts school, per­sisting until the mother finds a new attitude. See child; woman.

son

Extroverted self; desires connected with self expression; feelings connected with son; parental responsibility. Mother’s dream: one’s ambitions; potential, hopes; your marriage—see example.

Example: ‘My wife and I were walking out in the country­side. I looked around suddenly and saw my four-year-old son near a hole. He fell in and I raced back.

The hole was narrow but very deep. I could see water at the bottom but no sign of my son. I didn’t know whether I could leap down and save him or whether it was too narrow. Then somehow he was out. His heart was just beating’ (Richard H). Richard had argued with his wife in such a way he feared the stability of their marriage.

The son represents what they had created together —a child, a marriage.

The marriage survived, as his dream self-assessed it would. Death of son: a mother often kills off her son in her dreams as she sees him make moves towards independence. This can happen from the first day of school on. Example: T am on a very high bridge over an extremely wide and deep river with steep banks. My son does a double somersault over the railing, falls into the water. I think he is showing off. I am unable to save him. My son is 18 and has staned a structural engineering course at university’ (Joyce H).

The showing-off suggests Joyce feels her son is doing daring things with his life, and the relationship in its old form dies.

Father’s dream: yourself at that age; what qualities you see in your son; your own possibilities, envy of youth and oppor­tunities; nvalry. Someone else’s son: feelings about one’s own son; feelings about younger men. Dead son: see dead people dreams. Sec boy. See also man; first example in falling.

wife

Depicts how you see the relationship with your wife; your relationship with your sexuality; sexual and emotional desire and pleasure; how you relate to intimacy in body, mind and spirit; your feeling, intuitive nature; habits of relationship developed with one’s mother. Example: ‘My wife was trying to get me out of her life, and out of the house. It was as if she were attempting to push me into a feeling of tension and rejection which would make me leave’ (David P). Out of childhood experience, in which his mother repeatedly threat­ened to give him away, David was finding it difficult to com­mit himself emotionally to his wife. In the dream his wife represents these feelings, so he sees her—his anxiety and pain —pushing him to break up the marriage.

Example: I was standing with my wife at the end of the garden of the house I lived in as a child. We were looking over the fence to the rising meadow beyond. She said, “Look at that bird in the tree there.” On our right, in a small ash tree, an enormous owl perched. It was at least 4 feet high, the biggest bird I have ever seen. I recognised it in the dream as a greater hooded owl, which was not native to our country. I was so excited I ran into the house to telephone someone— zoo, police, newspapers?—to tell them about the bird. I can­not remember contacting anyone, but felt the bird was there in some way to meet me. Also it was hungry and looking at next door’s bantams. So I wondered what I could give it to eat’ (David P). This shows the positive side of David’s rela­tionship with his wife.

The garden is the boundanes which arose from his childhood. But he is growing—the garden— and looking beyond them in connection with his marnage.

The amazing bird is the deep feelings he touches because he has a mate, like any other natural creature. Out of his mating he becomes aware of drives to build a home—nest—and give himself to his mate. These are natural and are a pan of his unconscious or spiritual nature.

The bird is a hooded owl which can see in the dark—the unconscious—because David is realising things he had never seen’ before.

The bird is masked, meaning putting the ego aside, which is a necessity for touching the wider dimension of life or the unconscious.

The hunger of the bird shows an intimate detail of what David has learnt from his wife. She had been working as a waitress and bringing home pieces of chicken for him, saved from her own meal.

The spiritual side of David wants to develop this quality of selfgiving, which his wife’s love had helped him see.

Example: ‘1 have been a widower since January 1979, hav­ing married in October 1941. I continually dream I am in London where my business was. I am walking the streets with my wife and suddenly I see her ahead of me in a yellow raincoat and hat. I call her and try to catch up, but suddenly she vanishes. In spite of calling and searching I cannot find her’ (Douglas G). This is a common theme dreamt by widow­ers or widows, disappearance of spouse. Douglas has ‘lost’ his wife. His dream shows the paradox of love after death of panner. His love is still there, years after her death. He is possibly still trying to love his wife as an externally real per­son. so his feelings can make no connection.

To meet what actually remains of his wife, within himself, he would need to face his own internal grieving, emotions, and all the feelings, memories, angers and beauty which make up the living re­mains of his wife within him. ... 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.

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....

HALLOWE’EN

If Hallowe’en figures in your dream in some way, this illustrates personal revelations or dramatic insights into yourself or someone else. Hallowe’en—also known as All Hallow’s Eve—is the night when witches, ghosts and spirits are believed to walk the earth and reveal themselves; so is there something in waking life you need to reveal or come to terms with? Observed annually on the night of 31 October and originally a pagan festival of the dead, Hallowe’en is celebrated today as a night of fancy dress, trick or treating, and superstitious fun and games. Wiccans and pagans, however, observe All Hallow’s Eve (also known as Sanhain) as one of their most important sacred days. For them it is a time to honor the dead, communicate with spirits and observe rituals. It is also thought to be a particularly good time to make a fresh start and commence new projects. So if Hallowe’en images float into your dream, perhaps your dream is urging you to do just that.... The Element Encyclopedia

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.
