What does the negative Queen represent in a dream?

Dream 437: The Evil Queen

I have had very vivid and odd dreams every night for the past month. Yet when I awake I usually only remember pieces. I was standing in front of my ex husband. We were talking as I began to think in my head about our split. Reminding myself of the monster he became…the reason I left. I used to have no voice when in his presence so I was reminding myself before I made eye contact.

I reached in my pocket though and pulled out a seemingly endless stack of large bills. He put his hands out and one by one I placed the bills in his Palm. It never ended. I remember thinking what about my needs. If I give it all I’ll have nothing. He never stopped me and I never spoke up.

I looked down and Instantly fell to my knees. I quickly place my hands out to catch This large Brown ribbed vase. I was unable to catch it in time. The glass broke shattering and slicing my right Index finger. I remember specifically the feel of glass shards across my fingers.

I looked up to see a woman I have not yet the chance to meet.  She had black curly hair old style framed glasses. She had a dark-tinted color to her, like not a normal color. She just stared blankly at me. It was creepy, almost like I felt I was in trouble.

I heard “Watch her–When she appears pay close attention to her.” Then I woke up. I’ve yet to understand this one. A lot of my dreams are about money or past lives, even god. I’m not sure why the oddities, but would greatly appreciate any Insight.

Interpretation

Money usually represents energy in dreams. He was a viper who took all your energy and never reciprocated.

The woman in your dreams is negative emotions. Jung called her the queen or the negative mother complex. She resides in everyone’s subconscious.

The queen is all about power and control. Her attitude toward you is capricious and arbitrary.

Her motto is “ask not what I can do for you–ask what you can do for me now.” She looks very strong, but will wilt unless the odds are overwhelmingly in her favor.

The savage masculine will aggravate and make her stronger. It sounds like you were married to a savage masculine man. The only part of the psyche that has any success against her is the heroic masculine–which usually involves being dedicated to taking positive actions that focus mainly, if not exclusively, on your needs and not making any excuses about it nor apologizing for looking after your needs.

I think the brown vase falling and cutting your finger right before the queen appears was done to emphasize that the queen is the emotional part of yourself that is hurting you. When glass is breaking in a dream, that usually means that the emotional impact of something is finally fully reaching you.  Her favorite putdown is “who do you think you are.”

I hope this is helpful.

What does a three headed snake, groceries, and your daughter hiding behind you mean in a dream?

3-headed-cobra
Dream 422: Decisions I hate to make

My daughter had a dream that she had went into a bag to pull out some grocery and all of a sudden a three-headed snake pop up out the bag and her daughter got scared and start hiding behind her and she tried to chop off the snake heads and it wouldn’t chop off. What is the meaning of this dream…

Interpretation

In dreams groceries (food) is psychological support or nurture usually. A snake represents change because it’s one of the few animals to shed its skin. The change probably involves three difficult choices or people the dreamer has to use their head to select from– since she was trying to cut off the head of the snake which also implies that she really doesn’t want to decide, but because she could not cut the heads off, she must decide.

It is probably an emotional decision as her daughter might represent her inner Emotional Self that she wants to hide. This is taking her daughter as the average little girl and assuming that she has no problems or outstanding characteristics which would influence what she is trying to hide emotionally. This is said without knowing her and represents possible guesses that occurred to me off the top of my head.

What does it mean when you find money in a barn for the family you babysit for?

Getting Energy from Doing What You Love
Getting Energy from Doing What You Love

Dream 390: Old MacDonald had a Barn Full of Energy

A woman had the following dream:

“I dreamed that the family I babysit for (I am friends with the mother) had lost like a friend or family member and a very large sum of cash was owed/given to them. The family drove me to the place to pick it up because they needed help getting it. We go to this farm looking space and I walk into the barn/ware-house type building. It was only being lit from the natural lighting coming from outside but it was enough for me to see this huge trunk in the middle of the room that i needed to use to put the money in for the family, there was huge wads of cash and single bills scattered about the floor. I filled up the trunk as much as I could, and left the rest there, as I made my way back to the family’s car. Just because I was the only one in there taking the money for the family, it felt in a way like I was stealing, but i was only doing what I was told to do, I think I felt odd being the one having to go get the money instead of one of the family members doing it themselves, but they said they needed me to help get it for them. When I got to the car, a man who was following me, walked up to us (tan, dark hair and handsome; wearing overalls), said sorry he was not in the room with me to help out and he had work elsewhere to do, and he brought me the remaining cash that was for the family. Then we all drove away.”

My Interpretation

In dreams, money is energy. The barn is a natural and I want to say innocent place where your instincts (animals) are nurtured.

It sounds like you want to give all of the instinctive energy you can to the family you babysit for and want to give even more, but hold back wondering if you should, but then say it is okay because that is what I am supposed to do.

You get the energy free of charge from the universe by doing what you do for this family and you even get paid for doing it (no reason to feel guilty about being paid). The heroic action part of yourself feels that you could give even more energy to this family because it is nothing but good. What a country!

The tall, dark and handsome man is the representation of your own heroic masculine archetype which is often the initiator of therapeutic action, of things that are good for you. This part wholeheartedly wants you to feel uninhibited in giving personal energy to the family (the energy of the universe is supplied to you without your asking for it and this is a good thing for you and for the family).

What does the two of swords mean in the Tarot deck of cards?

Caught Between Two Lovers

Feeling Like a Fool

Dream 387: Caught Between Two Lovers

 
A man had the following dream: “I dreamt a lot but there’s one particular part I can’t find an answer to. I saw a tarot card, beautiful card. It was of a queen wearing white sitting she had a crescent above her head, porcelain face, and by her side were these green cartoonish creatures that looked non threatening yet I’m sure they could if wronged or ordered to.

My Interpretation for Him

At first, I thought you were talking about the queen of swords in the Tarot deck. However, the imagery you described is closer to the two of swords. This part of the dream probably goes with emotions as women in dreams tend to represent an emotional part of your psyche.

The image in the Tarot deck in the two of swords is a woman completely dressed in white with a white blindfold who is holding two swords with her arms crossed across her chest. The thought is that she is stuck in the middle and can’t make a decision and is afraid to move or to choose one of the options. The crescent appears on this card as a new moon. The moon tends to go with the subconscious and it could mean that you have some dawning awareness or insight in your subconscious.

The thought would be that possibly you have to choose between two relationships and feel unable to choose because you are going to have to hurt someone in making the choice. The green creatures could be involved as they may represent money, or marijuana, or a condensation of both. It also could be having to choose between a relationship and money or marijuana.

As always, I am interpreting the dream totally blind and I’m presenting possible options.

What does a shopping mall, a candle, socks and money mean in a dream?

Dream 378: Taking Care of Business

A woman had the following dream:

“I was walking around a mall alone. I was going around and around the same shops like I was trying to find a special one but never could. Then I finally found it and it looked like a clothing and candle shop.

I went in immediately searching for a cobalt blue candle. I wanted the largest one I could find with 3 wicks. I was smelling them and the smells were vivid and I found one I wanted.

Then I was standing near the checkout and there were some long single chain necklaces. I searched thru them until I found a long gold chain with a feather charm on the end. I went to grab it but as I did some other woman grabbed it too. We debated for a bit who had it first and she let me have it.

So I went back to the checkout counter and realized I had lost my shoes. I had been wearing white socks with colorful Nike sandals. I don’t ever do that. But seemingly someone took my sandals when I had taken them off debating the necklace issue.

A guy who worked there confronted me asking where my shoes were. Then he said show me the bottom of your feet. He wanted to see if I had been walking in the grass in my socks. When I raised my foot it was covered in grey dirt not green.

Then I started talking to a guy standing in line in front of me and he was making a payment on something that the store was charging him interest on. He had a large check that he showed me was written out for $3333.”

My Interpretation

One thing I’ve found to be almost always be true is that if you have a dream about a shopping mall, the dream usually is going to be talking about how you have been mauled in a business, career, or financial sense.

Looking for a candle implies you are always trying to look for the light in a business situation and usually you are able to sniff out what is right. You have to compete with other people who may be onto the same thing, but usually you can convince others to see it your way. Looking for a candle implies you always try and look for the light in the business situation and usually are able to sniff out what is right.

You have to compete with other people who may be on to the same thing, but usually you can convince others to see it your way.

Cobalt blue usually would go with mental activity and speaking out loud according to the chakra system if I looked at the concept of blue in a broad sense.

You can usually sniff out what is good and is likely to lead to change (smelling the candles and three is the number of change as there are 3 wicks).

I like the interpretation of the golden necklace with a feather being having valuable intuitive ability that you can bet your neck on (the necklace) and that can take wing(the feather).

The debate with the woman indicates the you can usually convince others to see it your way for your own advantage.

Socks are usually protective as are sandals in getting you to where you need to go. It is interesting that these are white socks. White is the most spiritual color that there is.

The whole thing about the socks and the grass and the dirt and the Nikes I believe indicates that you are willing to do what needs to be done and do not necessarily do things just to look good.

You sometimes and probably more often are more willing to do the dirty work (the grey on the socks) than to do things for your own personal growth (the green from plants on the bottom of your socks). You focus on getting the job done and not necessarily protecting yourself excessively and are willing to make yourself vulnerable to a degree.

The final image of the guy paying off the $3333 debt he was being charged interest on is perhaps one of the most interesting aspects of this dream. Money is energy in dreams. It can be money itself but it also can be energy that other people have loaned you in in this case.

The dream is emphasizing that you need to pay back the favors you’ve been given before they end up costing you too much. It could end up costing you more if people feel that you have not shown enough interest.

3 is the number of change and you have four 3’s. I believe the dream might be saying that if you change this aspect and pay off the favors early, it will lead to stability because 4 is the number of stability as there are four legs on a table, four legs on a chair, four directions, four seasons, etc.

This is a nicely done and well rounded dream about how to conduct your career/business/financial aspects of your life.

Feedback from the Dreamer

The dreamer gave me the following feedback:

“Steven-this is pretty awesome! I wanna show u how accurate. Hugely mauled over at work but also benefiting from it and competing not for the same position but to do the same work..long story and it’s incredibly draining has been for months. My intuition is always spot on especially regarding others’ intentions. I have a hard time verbalizing that and sharing my insights and hold back on speaking about it especially lately and even when asked. I always over exert myself and energy in order to ‘get the job done’ re: the dirt not green. The check for $3333 was interesting and I remember thinking he bought an engagement ring with it and was making payments. Although I did recently have a reiki session and now I’m wondering if I need to be repaying them or the universe in some way to pay it forward.”

What does a shark mean in a dream?

It's Really Difficult to Leave This Home Pool
It’s Really Difficult to Leave This Home Pool

Dream 302                                                                     
A woman dreamed that she was underwater in a swimming pool that was a combination of a swimming pool and the ocean. It seemed vast and open on the one hand, but had a ladder and  swimming pool accessories on the other hand. In the water with her was a shark with a bloody mouth because he had just been feeding.

The shark made no move towards attacking her. She decided to leave the pool because she could not hold her breath any longer. She climbed up the pool ladder and was intending to go towards her mother and sister.

The shark grabbed her by the right leg as she was leaving the pool/ocean. The shark did not hurt or bite her. The shark only put enough pressure on the leg that  she could not leave the ocean/pool.

Interpretation

Water is invariably emotions in dreams. Particularly subconscious emotions. It depends upon what type of body of water it is also.

The open ocean represents the best symbol we have for the vast subconscious. A pool represents our emotions at home because pools are located near homes. The image in the dream sounds like a combination of the ocean and a pool so that they together represent deep subconscious emotions at home.

Each character in a dream represents a part of our mind. Women tend to represent the parts of the dreamers mind that deals with emotions. That her mother and sister are in the dream especially emphasizes that it’s about emotions at home.

Also, the shark having a bloody mouth indicates the color red. The color red goes with the first chakra. The first chakra often deals with family (or tribe) issues. The color red also signals strong emotions such as love and anger (which are present in spades in family issues).

Animals represent our instincts. The shark is an aggressive predator. It is a shadow energy that we all deal with and are uncomfortable with for the most part.

The dream implies that she is immersed in her emotions and dealing with instincts or anger which we all have. We need these instincts to some extent to defend ourselves. The dream indicates that she worries about being overly angry sometimes at home and tries not to dwell on it as it makes her uncomfortable.

When she tries to get out of the pool to go to her mother and sister, the shark grabs her right leg. This is important. It sounded like it didn’t really hurt the dreamer but mainly wanted her to stay in the pool.

This is the dreams way of saying it wants her to deal with these emotions. The dream wanted to help her deal emotionally with others. Even the fact that it grabbed her right leg is significant.

Legs support us. The right side is associated with our conscious intentions. This suggest that the dream wants her to deal with any angers she had at home to help her be supportive to others and to herself.

Possible Details to Wonder About

We know at the first level that this dream is about emotional conflicts at home. At the next and second level of the dream, it is vital to get details from the dreamer. Let me explain.

For example, this dream could involve money conflicts and difficulty leaving home. The term “loan shark” comes to mind. One wonders whether there are money issues.

It is possible that she is subconsciously angry because she feels controlled because someone she is close to her has a financial hold on her (the shark not allowing her to leave the pool is the major clue here). Being in such a situation is especially stressful because if she leaves the current financial arrangements, she might feel that she didn’t have a leg to stand on (the shark would not let go of her leg). While it looks like she might be in a “hostile dependency” situation, getting further details from the dreamer would be vital to fully interpret this interesting dream.

What does money mean in dreams?

Dream Question 296: Money in dreams is usually personal energy. Dreams often use money as a summary symbol of how much physical, emotional, social, political, financial, spiritual and subconscious energy the dreamer has in a given situation. Money commonly signals the amount of personal wherewithal the dreamer can now bring to bear on a problematic situation in the dreamer’s life.

There are, of course, other indicators of the dreamer’s personal energy level. Large land animals such as elephants or vigorous sea creatures such as whales or sharks indicate that the energy level of the dreamer is high. The type of animal describes the energy involved. For example, sharks and scorpions are typically aggressive energy, while horses many times go with relationship or sexual power.

A frequent modern-day symbol for energy involves gas stations. Cars in dreams are typically how you get somewhere in life symbolically in a dream. Getting fuel at a gas station generally indicates that it would be helpful for the dreamer to bring energy from outside of themselves into his or her life to get where they want to go.

Dreams like to use symbols that will get the dreamer’s attention. Money is an important and essential part of modern life that will seldom escape notice. Money is a particularly salient symbol in many situations that can be used as shorthand for the amount of personal resources the dreamer now has.

Money is almost certain to capture the dreamer’s attention. And you can take that to the bank. Ka-ching!

How to Lose It

Dream 274: A 38-year-old man dreamed he was in New York eating cheeseburgers with his high school friends at a fast food restaurant where they typically had cheeseburgers and fries. The three friends left in a hurry while he went to the bathroom. He found out that they had already paid the waitress. The scene shifted to his making his way to board a plane, but he had to kick along a soccer ball a long ways to get on the plane.

InterpretationDiet Woman Kicking Donut Snacks on White
Each character in the dream represents a part of the dreamer’s psyche with men going more with actions while women are most often associated with emotion. Three is the number of change as three people in a relationship is very unstable. Waitress implies waiting or patience.

Money represents energy often. A bathroom usually represents things the dreamer has to get rid of or change because he no longer needs, in this case, a certain behavior pattern.Flight is almost spiritual and boarding a plane often goes with the dreamer trying to accomplish a higher goal. Kicking along a soccer ball is, of course, aerobic activity.

The dreamer recently was struggling to lose weight. His subconscious recognizes that the first habit he needed to get rid of was eating fast food like he had been doing since high school. The dream wanted him to be patient (the waitress) and assured him he would save money (he did not have to pay the restaurant bill).

With the soccer ball and the airport, the dream was directly recommending aerobic exercise for him to reach his goal of losing weight. He literally had to kick the habit. In summary, the dream recommended exercise and to quit eating junk food.

The Spectacular Dive

 

Dream 213: The Spectacular Dive

A 48-year-old woman dreamt that she loaned five hundred dollars to an extroverted and fun friend so that she could go to Europe. The scene then shifted to her diving into a pool near her farm from a low diving board. She was supervised by a rigid and stern uncle. She then saw herself diving into the pool from another diving board that was connected to a gigantic tree. After she surfaced and came to the side of the pool, the uncle informed her that she was only going to get 85 cents back from the five hundred dollars she previously loaned to her friend. She put on sneakers as fast as she could and ran away from her uncle.

Dream 213–Interpretation

Money is energy in dreams. The dream juxtaposed the fun extroverted part of her emotional psyche with the rigid action part of her psyche (the rigid uncle) that went with her strict rural upbringing. Water is emotion. A tree is a primary symbol of integration. The dream assured her that she will have to dive deep into her emotions to be more integrated and to escape swiftly (the sneakers) from her inhibited and constrained actions (the uncle). The dream emphasized that she would never regain the energy she lost on the farm if she continued to limit herself. It was notable that her unempathic and authoritarian mother was eighty-five years old. The dream was yelling with the 85 cents for the five hundred dollars she loaned that she mostly lost energy on the farm.
