Astrology and Dreams. How they correspond with personal experiences, symbols, mythology and psychology.
Is the 'future' depicted in dreams, and/or is it the 'past' ? Perhaps its depicted or represented by something in the present ?
Symbols in dreams can have many interpretations. And astrology and related areas can help us to understand what many of these images arising from 'unconscious realms' - are trying to tell us.
If you have dreams that you would like to post, please do tell us, even if you know nothing of astrology, (we will set up your chart to look at it further if you would like),
Archetypes/mythological symbols can be seen in the context of their deeply personal significance. And this can be the result of a myriad of factors: of, not only an individual's life experiences, but also including recent matters - something that just happened: a book read, a film watched, or someone just seen or met. All of which/who can trigger something from the past that may be part of a 'genetic knowledge' - either personal or 'collective'.
"All the things one has forgotten scream for help in dreams".
"Dreams are illustrations... from the book your soul is writing about you".
""Astrology is primarily a method for gaining full understanding of living organisms; these may be bodies or personalities, even social organizations (like nations and business firms) which somehow operate as more or less permanent wholes organizing the productive activities of human beings. Life, in any form, operates according to a bi-polar rhythm — just as does electricity which, when active, always has a positive and a negative pole. So the understanding of polarity is essential to the study of astrology.
The most striking of these polar oppositions in man's life is that of waking consciousness and of sleep. In some civilizations and religions, this alternation of conscious activity and unconscious slumber has been extended to embrace the idea of a similar alternation of incarnated existence on Earth and "discarnated" absorption into a transcendent state of being beyond the portals of death.
This last-mentioned idea — the doctrine of reincarnation, as it is usually called — is rarely well understood; it can be significantly understood in a simple manner only when related to that which we call sleep. Unfortunately, we have only a most vague notion of what sleep means! We do not bother to ask why we sleep — though we pass a third of our existence sleeping — except for the fact that we know we must go to sleep when we are too tired. But why sleep rests us, why we must lose our usual consciousness (our day sense of identity, of being "I") and why we experience these peculiar phenomena called dreams — well, we simply do not ask. We take these things for granted, just as we take death and sickness as inevitable events which we must accept, even though we do not understand them..." Dane Rudhyar.
