The moon is a very powerful symbol, just as it is an enormous energetic force in our daily life on Earth. As the heavenly counterpart to the masculine energy of the sun, the moon represents the feminine aspects of life.
The primary essence of the moon is its constant changeability. In this regard, the moon symbolizes the ephemeral quality of life and all of the different cycles that human beings experience.
If the moon plays a prominent role in your dream, your interpretation should begin with the notion that change is afoot.
A distinction should be made about how the moon appears in your dream.
If the moon itself is visible to you in the skyscape of your dream, then you are looking at the source of emotional power.
If your dream illuminates the light of the moon itself as it falls upon Earth, then you are dreaming of the effect or impact of the moon’s magic.
If your dream actually takes place on the moon, then you are literally visiting the seat of your unconscious directly; such a dream should be considered as a very deliberate snapshot of your current experience of how the invisible side of life is impacting the visible.
The emotional side of life is represented by the moon. This includes all that is changeable and all that responds to the ebb and flow of life. Because of its unquestionable universality to the human race, the moon in dreams should be considered with very broad strokes of interpretation.... moon (moonlight) dream meaning
Dreaming Lens: Whose bedroom was it? Yours or another’s, known or unknown to you? Who was present in the room? What was occurring? How did you feel about the room, or what was going on in the room? Were you trapped there, or free to go? Were you hiding? Were you safe? Did you explore the room?
Personal Focus: A house represents the Self, and each part of a home is symbolic of particular elements of the human personality. The significance of a bedroom connects to privacy and intimacy. A bedroom is usually the most private room in the home, and a place where intimate acts occur. Because of the association with nakedness, sex, and the vulnerability that comes with being asleep, the bedroom represents the part of ourselves that we are aware of, but generally keep hidden and separate from our social and public life. On a primal level, the bedroom is the one room in a home where an individual’s scent is most prevalent. Human beings are the only member of the animal kingdom that will compulsively remove their own scent. This deepens the personal nature of this symbol.
If the bedroom is your own, your dream may be revealing issues about your private sense of identity around intimacy. Your feelings around the dream can be a barometer for how these unconscious emotions may be impacting you. For example, a dream where a traumatic event unfolds in your bedroom could point to a sense of private danger, whereas a joyful or pleasant event might relate to positive experiences in this area.
If the bedroom is known to you, but is not your own, your interpretation should incorporate the qualities of the actual resident. When there is no waking life connection to the bedroom, utilize any details that you remember to discover the deeper meaning of the dream. A luxurious room might lead you to consider issues around personal abundance. Similarly, a room that is stark or dilapidated suggests personal issues around lack and limitation. A large room could indicate a sense of expansion, but also a feeling of being overwhelmed, depending on how it felt to be in it. A small room could indicate anything from coziness to claustrophobia. The emotional content of the Dreaming Lens will help you clarify your interpretation. Remember to consider associations from your childhood and what role your bedroom played for you within the dynamic of your family.... bedroom dream meaning
Dreaming Lens: What color was the blood? Was it a healthy red, or a depleted blue? Was it a strange and unnatural color? Was it flowing from a wound? If so, was it being lost slowly or rapidly? Was it in a container of some kind? Was blood being removed from or added to the physical body? Did you find it repulsive, or a source of fascination?
Personal Focus: The elixir of life, blood courses through our veins and keep our bodies alive and healthy. Lose enough of it and life slips away. If your dream includes receiving or losing blood, this may reflect a message that you are either in need of more energy or are being depleted by some situation. How this occurs in your dream will add texture to your interpretation. A wound inflicted by another may reflect an external struggle, whereas a medical procedure connects more to an internal process necessary for healing.
Science tells us that there are different kinds of blood and that certain types are incompatible with others. In fact, disparate types between a mother and her fetus can be life threatening. Therefore, dreaming of blood types could connect to conflicts about compatibility that are deeply rooted and may be impacting you in areas of life that you are passionate about. When blood type and compatibility are being examined, the stakes can be as high as life and death. HIV brings a whole new view of blood as something that is potentially dangerous, because it transmits this disease, effectively shifting our collective conscious view of blood as a substance to be potentially feared as contagious on a life-threatening level. Incorporate the Dreaming Lens into whatever issues of compatibility may be surfacing in your waking life.
Bloodlines have figured prominently as coveted evidence of ancestry throughout history. While this perspective may appear to be an archaic form of class-consciousness, we are now aware that blood typology is an effective tool to establish biological ties between family members. If this idea is expressed in your dream, your interpretation should reflect blood as connected to primal feelings about your family connections. Your dream may be expressing this as powerfully passionate, or energetically depleting, depending on the Dreaming Lens.
The color of blood is significant in a number of ways. If this is thematic in your dream, your interpretation must examine the meaning behind it. Oxygen-rich and healthy blood has a distinctive color of deep red that is found nowhere else in nature. If tapped out of nutrients, it turns blue. In the world of science fiction, the blood of alien beings can be anything from green to colorless chemical compounds made up of deadly acids.
There are also many culturally-based meanings associated with blood. The term “red-blooded” is synonymous with virility and strength. Conversely, to be “blue-blooded” connotes a passivity and lethargy related to wealth or privilege. Issues of racial prejudice often included erroneous beliefs that blood differed significantly between people of different cultural background or skin color. The mixing of bloodlines was considered by many as likely to have disastrous results. While that level of ignorance is not as prevalent today as in our past, the foundation of these beliefs still resides in the collective unconscious and can appear in your dreams and is worth considering.
Your personal reaction to blood is also a factor in interpreting this dream symbol. Some people are squeamish and the sight of blood can be very upsetting. For others, curiosity or a sense of eroticism may be stimulated. There are those, too, who are unaffected by the sight of blood by being accustomed to it if their profession frequently brings them in contact with it. Any of these responses can reveal your relationship to the levels of passion and life force you are currently experiencing.... blood dream meaning
Dreaming Lens: Were you at a funeral in your dream? Whose was it? Did you know the deceased? What was the mood and atmosphere like? Was it your own funeral? Where was it located? Was there a religious element to the funeral?
Personal Focus: While a funeral centers on someone who has died, the event is designed for the living. A powerful ritual, funerals help people process the death of someone close to them in a collective procedure that acknowledges the loss and marks the beginning of a new chapter in their lives without the deceased.
Funerals are often very somber occasions where people feel they have to behave in an appropriately solemn manner. This restraint can limit the level of authenticity at such events. On the opposite side of the spectrum, there are many cultures in which gregarious expressions of joy are employed to deal with the feelings of grief.
If your dream involves either one of these extremes, consider how a recent life change may be impacting the authenticity of your expression. If your behavior at the funeral in the dream was inappropriately or contrary to the expectations of those in attendance, you might want to investigate areas of your life where the expectations of others are causing you difficulty.
In a dream where you are at a funeral, the identity of the deceased will play an important role in your interpretation. By examining them as a Character Aspect, you can consider what part of your psyche no longer serves you and has been sacrificed. In this case, only half the transformation is complete because funerals mark the death and not the rebirth that inevitably follows.
A common dream with this symbol involves the dreamer discovering that the funeral they are attending is their own. If this is the case, then the transformation that is taking place is more generalized and may connect to a developmental stage in life or a change of large enough magnitude as to imply a death of Self. Another potential interpretation of this dream connects to feeling a lack of passion or life force in your current circumstances. (See also Grave).... funeral dream meaning
Dreaming Lens: Were you holding the gun in your dream, or was someone else? Was it laying some place where anyone might be able to pick it up? Was it loaded? Was it being fired? Was it unable to fire? Was it real or fake? Was the gun hidden? Was it being brandished in a threatening manner?
Personal Focus: Whoever has the gun is in charge. Connected to the masculine principle, the gun represents male-oriented power in an extreme form. The key to understanding this symbol is that the power represented by a gun is available to whoever possesses it at any given moment. Even the most timid individual can wind up controlling any interaction if the intimidating power of a firearm is in their hands.
The masculine principle is related to action and the ability to make things happen. A gun of any type connects to this universal energy, but with an over-intensity that indicates a lack of balance or containment. While the presence of a gun may imply a sense of control in a chaotic situation, its deadly and unpredictable nature implies a breakdown of stability and the potential for lethal danger.
The type of firearm is important to consider as this indicates the amount of power being yielded. A handgun relates directly to personal power and should be interpreted as what is available to you as an individual. Something with more firepower, such as an automatic weapon, relates to the ability to express strength at a more social level.
The proximity of the gun in a dream indicates where the power currently resides. Holding the gun puts the dreamer in a position of ownership, but the level of confidence (or lack thereof) should be noted. Having a gun aimed at you indicates that some Character Aspect of your personality is demanding to be heard and dealt with. If this is the case, your interpretation needs to include working with whoever yielded the gun in your dream. Brandishing a weapon could indicate a need to be seen as powerful in some area of your life. A hidden or concealed gun indicates elusive power that is felt, though not flaunted.
Given the role of guns in our culture, how you personally feel about them must figure strongly in how you interpret them as a symbol. The more reticent you are about them, the more power this symbol may have for you. If this is the case, a gun indicates that Shadow material is being explored. However, do not be misled into thinking that the firing of all guns in dreams is murderous or even harmful—a hunter loves his gun like a trumpeter loves his trumpet. Additionally, something being killed off in a dream can actually be a positive thing, such as an old belief or pattern that no longer suits you.
Being wounded (or wounding someone else) in a dream brings us to the idea of the gun wielding great amounts of power. Where the wounding occurs will provide access to deeper levels of understanding of how this power is impacting you, whether positively or negatively. For example, being shot (or shooting someone) in the chest could be thought of as a destructive act, but this could also indicate the need for your heart to be opened up to receive love. This is especially true if there is a situation in your waking life that includes a level of intimacy that is great enough to be frightening on an unconscious level.... gun dream meaning
Dreaming Lens: Was the moon full? Where in the sky did it appear? How bright was the moonlight? Was it Earth‚Äôs moon, or a dreamscape night sky? Were you on the moon?
Personal Focus: The moon is a very powerful symbol, just as it is an enormous energetic force in our daily life on Earth. As the heavenly counterpart to the masculine energy of the Sun, the moon represents the feminine aspects of life. The primary essence of the moon is its constant changeability. In this regard, the moon symbolizes the ephemeral quality of life and all of the different cycles that human beings experience. If the moon plays a prominent role in your dream, your interpretation should begin with the notion that change is afoot.

The emotional side of life is represented by the moon. This includes all that is changeable and all that responds to the ebb and flow of life. Because of its unquestionable universality to the human race, the moon in dreams should be considered with very broad strokes of interpretation. The Dreaming Lens is most important because it is the position, presence, or placement of the moon that is the key to its power. The moon also connects to cycles. It regulates the pulse of the Earth with its enormous gravitational influence. The presence of the moon in a dream may indicate the course of a cycle of an emotional process or transformation.... moon (moonlight) dream meaning
Dreaming Lens: What type of restaurant were you in? What meal were you eating or intending to eat? Were you well-served? Was the food palatable? Who were you dining with?
Personal Focus: Any establishment that concerns itself with food connects to nurturance. This especially applies to a restaurant, as the ritual of being waited on and served is also a form of self-care. The expense of eating out is always going to be higher than the expense of preparing something at home. The cost factor adds the color of celebrating abundance to the meaning of this symbol. If the Dreaming Lens focus was more negative, it could be indicating feelings of lack in this area of your life.
Waiters are responsible for the tempo and structure of your dining experience. Ideally they are informative, pleasant, and efficient. In this way, they are a Character Aspect of the organization and control that surrounds your issues of nurturance and self-care. The service you receive in your dream restaurant will inform you of how effectively you are managing the constant flow of meeting your needs in life. Ask yourself if you are happy with the service you provide yourself with each day.
The quality of your meal connects with both abundance and the ability to discern excellence. Responsible for this element is the chef, the unseen heart and soul of a restaurant. The chef also represents the creative power within your psyche. A fine meal could reveal that you are indeed being careful to ensure that your life provides for your needs in a way that reflects a consciousness of deserving abundance. However, a dream in which you are served unacceptable food indicates that there is something out of balance in this area. If the dream includes something as severe as food poisoning, you may want to examine your attitudes more closely.
The atmosphere and ambiance, or lack thereof, can be thought of as reflecting your sense of values and what you are attached to in life. There is nothing wrong with demanding and expecting luxury, especially if it is readily available to you. However, any visceral reactions to the setting of your dream restaurant may offer you insight into how your current value system is impacting you on an unconscious level. If the dream centered on issues connecting with the mood, setting, or attitude of the restaurant staff, you can use this information to inform you of any imbalance you may be expressing from your waking life.
The company you were keeping in such a dream can offer a wealth of additional items for consideration. Treat each person as a Character Aspect. Their qualities will inform your choices around receiving abundance, and also your commitment, or lack of commitment, to taking care of yourself.... restaurant dream meaning
