A 58-year-old woman dreamt that she was watching the desert from her picture window. Suddenly, she thought an asteroid hit the moon. It broke a chunk of the moon off. She thought that when the chunk reached her, she would die. After the moon chunk hit the earth, she felt the dust pass through her and knew that she died. She was surprised that she then had a feeling of relief and joy.
The moon tends to represent the unconscious. The sun goes with the conscious. The moon is associated with love and romance (think of the song Moon River or George’s promise to his fiancee to “lasso the moon” for her in the movie It’s a Wonderful Life.)
A death in a dream can mean that a part of the psyche “died” or was modified significantly. Part of the moon crashing to earth, in this case, meant that she was changing her love life significantly by being more “down to earth” with her lover. She recently had transformed the relationship with him by being more assertive. She expected more from him and was pleasantly surprised that she was much happier.
