1- Dreaming of mythical goddesses connects us with our archetypal images of femininity (see Archetypes). In a woman’s dream a goddess will clarify the connection through the unconscious that exists between all women and female creatures.

It is the sense of mystery, of a shared secret, which is such an intangible force within the woman’s psyche. In the waking state it is that which enables women to crcate a sisterhood or network among themselves in order to bring about a common aim.

To dream about goddesses therefore is to accept our right to initiation into this group. In a man’s dream the goddess figure signifies all that a man fears in the concept of female power. It usually also gives an insight into his earliest view of femininity through his experience of his mother.

2- There are many goddess figures in all cultures. There are those perceived as being destructive such as Kali, Bast and Lilith. and also beneficent ones such as Athena and Hermia.

The beneficent ones which women most closely relate to are given here: Aphrodite, goddess of love and beauty, moves women to be both creative and procreativc. She governs a woman’s enjoyment of love and beauty. Artemis, who is the goddess of the moon, personifies the independent feminine spirit whose ultimate goal is achievement. She is often pictured as the hunter. Athena is goddess of wisdom and strategy. She is logical and self-assured and is ruled by her mental faculties rather than her emotions. Demeter, the maternal archetype and goddess and fertility, highlights a woman’s drive to provide physical and spiritual support for her children. Hera, the goddess of marriage, denotes the woman who has her essential goal of finding a husband and being married as paramount and anv other role as secondary.

Hestia. goddess of the hearth, manifests the patient woman who finds steadiness in seclusion. She emits a sense of wholeness. Persephone, who is ultimately queen of the underworld but only- through having rejected her status as Demeter’s daughter, gives expression to woman’s tendency towards a need to please and be needed bv others. Her submissive behaviour and passivity must change to an ability to take responsibility for who she is.

3- Spiritually; women are able to make intuitive links with the essential aspects of her own personality. She then achieves a greater understanding of her own make up, and is able to use all facets of her being within her normal everyday life.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary

SHEAF

1- Previously a sheaf, particularly of corn, would signify a harvest or good husbandry. Now it is more likely to suggest old-fashioned ways and methods of operating.

A sheaf of papers would suggest hard work.

2- As a marker of time, the sheaf will suggest Autumn.

It is often seen as a symbol of consolidation and of binding. We perhaps need to look at what needs to be gathered in, made into a coherent whole, and given boundaries.

3- As the symbol of Demeter (see Goddess), the sheaf represents the nurturing mother. In can also suggest a dying world, in that Demeter refused to nurture ‘her’ humans when Persephone (see Goddess) was kidnapped by Pluto.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary

GODDESS

The oldest religious tradition on earth may well be Goddess worship, which some archaeologists trace back further than 30,000 years. It was certainly natural to worship the archetype of woman as the source of all life, especially in the age before male warriors replaced Her with their combative sky gods. The Goddess archetype in dreams can be inspiring as it embodies wisdom, guidance, physical grace, athletic prowess and sensuality.

If a particular goddess appears in your dream, study the specific qualities of that goddess and evaluate how much of your sense of self is reflected in one of those patterns. For example, Venus / Aphrodite: love and fertility; Diana / Artemis: nature and hunting; Minerva / Athena: strength, clear thinking; Ceres / Demeter: motherhood; Juno / Hera: queenship and partnership; Proserpina / Persephone: mysticism and mediumship; Sophia: wisdom...

GOD / GODDESS

You may have a dream in which the image of a god, such as the warrior lord Mars or a goddess such as Aphrodite, the goddess of love, appears. The characteristics of gods and goddesses that populate the world’s religions are in many ways similar; this is because they are archetypal figures that embody universal human emotions and characteristics, such as love, hate, anger, justice, jealousy or other potent energies. This should be borne in mind when you try to interpret your dream.

If you become a deity in your dream, the message is even more potent and perhaps you do feel god like in waking life or are aware that you are being given the opportunity to reach your fullest potential; bear in mind though that such a dream also warns against the dangers of egotism or overreaching yourself in some way.

If a woman dreams of mythical gods, it may help her to understand those aspects of her own personality that are generally considered to be more masculine.

If a man dreams of mythical gods, he is linking with his own sense of masculinity. The powerful need that exists within us all for approval and love can often be recognized in the mythical gods. For example, Adonis represents health and self-love, Apollo represents sunny optimism and Chiron healing.

Jehovah in the guise of a vengeful God alerts you to the negative side of power. Mars as the god of war suggests the drive to succeed and win, whilst Zeus is the father figure in both its positive and negative form.

If a woman dreams of mythical goddesses, this will connect her to the archetypal images of femininity and sisterhood with other women.

If a man dreams of mythical goddesses, this signifies all that a man fears about female power. There are goddess figures that are perceived as destructive such as Kali, Bast and Lilith but also beneficial ones such as Athena, the goddess of wisdom and strategy or Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty. Artemis is the goddess of the moon and female intuition and independence. Demeter is the maternal archetype and Hera represents the woman whose goal in life is marriage. Hestia is a symbol of loneliness and patience, whilst Persephone, Queen of the Underworld, expresses the need of some women to please others and be needed by them; her behavior must turn from passive and submissive into an ability to take responsibility for own life.

You may dream of Hindu deities such as Brahma, who is the source of the cosmos, Vishnu its protector and Shiva, who is both the destroyer and protector of life. Together with the Devil, their appearance in a dream expresses confusion but also great creativity and liberation.

If other figures from ancient myth and legend feature in your dream, refer to the ARCHETYPES and SURREALISM AND FANTASY. You may also like to do your own research on dream images inspired by ancient myths, gods and goddesses to see if you can discover their role in your dream and how their universal archetypal energy relates to you....
