If you abandon something bad in your dream you could quite possibly receive some favorable financial news. But if someone abandons you, close to you in your dreams it may mean trouble, don’t worry you can over come it by acknowledging the warning sign.

If you dreamed you saw some sort of abandonment, it indicates you will hear some news or information that you will feel is very important to you.

To dream that you yourself have been abandoned is a dream of contradiction and means you will have a reconciliation or a quick turn around from the trouble or problem.... Encyclopedia of Dreams

Fire. Emotional purification. Psychological and physical energy (flame of life), will. Devastating dangers, destruction, depletion, and transformation. Sexual passion up to and including addiction (“my old flame”); or intense passion. Need for togetherness, or the power to consolidate or remove contradiction. Cremation is said to assist resurrection (See Ashes).

According to the I Ching, fire is that which bonds and radiates.

The fire that Prometheus steals from the gods is seen as a creative act of the human, as is the flame of the Easter candle that is the symbol of God’s power.

According to Germanic mythology, if consciousness fails to rule, the world will be set ablaze and consumed by a great fire. Purification, on the other hand, takes place in the fire in purgatory. It separates the sin from the sinner.

According to the alchemists1 interpretation, it is God Himself who glows in divine love in the flame of the fire. Also, according to Jung, hell is fire, since everything is destroyed there.

The fire in hell is a symbol of eternal pain; the fire in purgatory is the fire of purification. In Frazer’s The Golden Dough are many references to cleansing, Light, and fertility, related to the powers of fire.

For the Mayans, fire is the mother of the gods, residing in the center of the earth.

The image of the “fire mother” can be found in many cultures. According to Jung, fire is the true symbol of life, the center of life, the place where it is warm and light, where people assemble; that’s where you can warm yourself and cook something. It gives protection; it is the essence of being home. Fire is the primeval component and vitality of human beings.

As a male symbol, fire is brightness, the connection to the light, the Sun, and, in particular, to Lightning (Zeus and Wotan). Fire symbolizes the power of passion and action in the archetypal man and woman.

According to Freud, it is often connected with bed- wetting.

Folklore: A serious warning to be careful.... Little Giant Encyclopedia

See Marriage.

A specific event concerning your own development.

A desire for a partner, for bonding, or looking for balance between internal and external contradictions. Are you seeing your dream partner.7 Such a dream partner often depicts the ideal of your soulmate. Rarely, it signifies a warning of unwanted pregnancy. See Baby.

An unhappy or ugly bride or bridegroom often points to conflicts with your partner.

Alchemy sees these symbols as a connection between opposites. According to Jung, the images connect the masculine and feminine parts of the soul and are a symbol of light and fertility.

Folklore: Surprisingly, a bride and bridegroom in a dream always mean accident and great disappointment, particularly when you yourself are the bride or bridegroom.... Little Giant Encyclopedia

Vision: Seeing a bride in a dream is always a good sign and means something pleasant is coming your way.

If a woman sees herself as a bride or with a bridal veil, it means positive developments in the romance department—maybe even marriage.

A man embracing a bride: a warning to him about a foolish love affair.

Depth Psychology: Leaving out the fact that the appearance of a bride in a dream is a sign of your need and desire for love, it also can mean that the contradictions in your personality are now in harmony. Sometimes, in a religious sense, a groom stands for God, and a bride for the Virgin Mary.... Dreamers Dictionary

A frequent symbol in dreams and mythology, the bridge spans an abyss. It is often a place of danger and of falling; you are crossing a boundary. In the Catholic faith, the protector is Saint Napomuk, patron saint of bridges. Uniting, re-establishing relationships; contradictions are bridged.

If the dreamer has self-confidence, the fear of the abyss may be going away, but although the bridge becomes wider and is safe, it is still a place of danger.

The condition of the bridge is important. How are you feeling on the bridge? When you have crossed the bridge, you have done a lot of inner work. Changes have taken place (you have reached the other shore).

In the Koran, the bridge over hell is as thin as a thread and can only be crossed by the righteous. In Celtic lore, there exists a bridge of horror that is also as narrow as a thread.

The bridge always spans an abyss in which spirits, the devil, or God resides. Often in the dream one must bring a sacrifice in order to cross the bridge.

For that reason we often see chapels on the bridge where the sacrifice has to be offered. Jung related the symbol of the bridge to the unconscious. He saw the unconscious as different islands in the sea.

For him, the bridge connected these islands and is therefore a symbol of working toward a strong consciousness.... Little Giant Encyclopedia

Dreamers Dictionary

Symbol: The bridge in a dream connects contradictions in your emotions and actions.

Vision: Crossing a bridge means reaching a new “shore” on your life’s journey, changes for the better, and leaving behind old problems; also advancement in your private and professional life.

A broken down bridge or going down with a bridge that is falling: a project will end in failure and a streak of bad luck—which you are partially responsible for. Seeing a number of bridges: frustration and anger. Walking across an old bridge in poor repair: overcoming danger at the last minute. Walking across a very long bridge: your future will be filled with many adventures.

Depth Psychology: A bridge is a sign of an emotional transition. It is usually a good omen—if the bridge does not break down.

A bridge usually indicates that you will solve your problems and that contradictory opinions can be “bridged.” You are on the wav to new shores.... Dreamers Dictionary

See Angel, Ocean. Living life from the depths of the soul and emotions, because fish live in the depths of the sea. Feeling like “a fish in water”—being in one’s element. One feature of fish is their wholeness, since they live exclusively in water (the emotional sphere). Fish are usually voracious eaters and immensely productive. They have no eyelids, sleep with their eyes open, and are always attuned to the world around them. Some fish change their colors according to the circumstances. They are creatures of high sensibility, but they are also cold and can’t be held. In a broader sense, the symbolism of the astrological sign of the fish is also relevant here, where oceanic feelings, trust and mistrust, and the contradictions of willpower and self-defense are at issue. Also, chaos and the absurd belong here, as well as faith—including superstition and disbelief.

If you see yourself fishing, what did you catch? A small fish indicates small Booty: a big fish, big booty.

The fisherman is trying to catch the content of the soul. Since ancient times, in China fish have been a sign of fertility. As far back as Babylonian times, fish appearing in dreams were considered phallic symbols. According to 2nd century dream interpreter Artemidorus, a dead fish represents lost hope.

The fish is also a Christian symbol.

The point when Spring entered the constellation of the fish coincided with the beginning of Christianity.

The salmon of wisdom is part of Irish mythology.

In psychoanalysis, the fish is a symbol of male sexuality- According to Jung, if you are the fish, you can renew yourself in the Water (emotions). Also, according to Jungian psychoanalysis, the fish is the symbol of wholeness. It symbolizes the total person of the dreamer and, more to the point, the emotional side of sexuality. Jung also believed that fish are like thoughts and hunches, which surface from the unconscious. (In the fairy tale “The Fisherman and His Wife,” we find the 44 wishing-fish.”)...

The color of something as yet unconscious and undefined, a color-less mixture where light emerges from the dark. Blending contradictions, as in Wedding, where it mixes black (female) and white (male), so it is archetypal. Gray stands on the border between day and night, light and dark, and—in a dream—asks us to draw clear distinctions. Gray here may represent the unassuming; on the other hand, the inconspicuous gray may also point to the conspicuous, the essential, and the real in life. See Mouse, Shadow....

Desire for, or fear of, intercourse. Climax and relaxation.

The image of one’s own personal physical sexuality that often points to sex as an end in itself. What is addressed here is not only sexual lust, vitality, and depth, but also a challenge to find your “self,” which is only possible through intense communication with the Other. Symbolic meaning of sexual climax reveals (not only in dreams) how we can become centered and engage our personal strength and passions. Other interpretations, as in alchemy and analytical psychology, include a sign of contradictions acknowledged and overcome.... Little Giant Encyclopedia

Symbol: The river indicates that “everything is moving along well.” The river is a symbol of universal hope, fertility, death, and renewal.

Vision: Dreaming about a big river where the water is very clear: a good sign, everything in your life is moving along without interference.

If the water in the river is murky: people around you are hostile and you may need to fight back.

If the river is flowing over its banks: others are gossiping about you—your plans are going to “drown.” Falling into the river: bad luck. Swimming in the river: you may have to deal with a dangerous adversary, but you will succeed. Swimming against the current is a symbol of internal contradictions that need attention and resolution. Swimming across the river means you are leaving the past behind—positive changes are beginning to take place. See Brook.

Depth Psychology: The river is considered the energy reservoir of your soul. You are not making enough use of these energies—or you may not even be aware of them (see Stream).

The condition of the river represents your emotional energy and strength. These energies may carry you where you have no intention of going and they can also destroy! See Water.... Dreamers Dictionary

A symbol of Venus—love and devotion.

The contradiction of blossom and thorn.

The rose plays the same role in the West that the lotus plays in the Orient. Both blossom, producing many thousands of petals, and represent the highest stage of consciousness.

The rose is often a symbol of the self. As a well-known symbol of love, it points to the dreamer’s feeling of security and suggests that he should be more open to love.

The Greek word rodor for rose came from the ancient Greek word for “flowing,” which may have been coined to convey the flow of fragrance from this flower. But this never-ending flow of fragrance from the rose also shortens its life, causing it to wilt rapidly. Because this magnificently flowering, fragrant blossom wilts so fast, it is also considered a symbol of death.

The rose also points to the world beyond, which is the reason that the Catacombs in Rome are decorated with garlands of roses.

The rose also is the harbinger of death in the Oraclesy and it is reported that a few days before their death, bishops would find a white rose on their chair.

The belief in the death-announcing rose has influenced customs in England and Germany, where people have been reluctant to bring roses to a sick person. And if a rose bush produced a green rose—that is, when the petals turned green—as English folklore had it, a family member would die.

It is not only in England that the rose is connected with death. As far back as ancient Rome, every year a festival of the roses was celebrated where the dead were honored. Graves were decorated with wreaths made from roses.

Since time immemorial, what happens in the presence of the rose is not talked about. In antiquity, when a rose was suspended above the table, the meal was taken “sub rosa,” as it was called then, which means that absolutely nothing from the conversation was repeated after the meal.

The early Christians took up this symbolic tradition: the presence of a rose indicated that silence was to be observed when heathens were among them.

The rose as the symbol for silence continued into the 18th century, when, for instance, wooden roses were carved into the woodwork of the confessional and roses were also included in the stucco of the halls of the court.

The rose, like the lotus, is considered the perfect flower, which is one of the reasons why the Christian Church declared it to be the image of wisdom. This was instrumental in the rose becoming a symbol of Christ. Mary is also depicted as a rose, but a rose without thorns, because in Christian symbolism the thorns of the rose indicate sin, and Mary was free of sin.

The rose has something very mystical about it. Praying the rosary is considered meditation.

The Sufis pray with a drop of rose fragrance dabbed on the area of the “third eye,” because it is said that the rose cleanses and strengthens the spirit. In ancient Greece a wreath of roses was already thought to strengthen the mind.

The Roman Emperor wore a wreath of roses for the same reason. Romans wore wreaths made from roses during decadent outdoor feasts, because they hoped the roses would minimize the effects of too much drinking.

The rose as the image of a clear mind was also known to the alchemists, who connected the rose to the idea of deliverance. In Dante’s Paradiso the small group of saved sinners is pictured in the form of a white rose above which angels circle like bees. That the way to salvation is possible only through love is perhaps the most important lesson of the rose, the flower originally dedicated to Aphrodite, goddess of love. But that the rose also symbolizes flesh and blood is seen in the fact that Dionysus also claimed the rose to be his.

Time and again we hear about a rose bush that never stops blooming; about rose branches in a vase that for 70 years produced white blossoms; and about how the food for the poor that, in the basket of saints, is transformed into roses.

For those interested in the magic of the rose, we might also mention the Pentagram of the Rose.

If you connect the center of each petal with the center of the petal that comes after the next, you will form a pentagram, the foot of the Druids, the old magic figure that Faust wanted to use to overcome Satan.

The Greeks considered the long-lived, five-leaved rose bush, with the imprint of a pentagram, to be the symbol of the cycle of the Cosmos, which, according to Aristotle, is determined by the five elements (fire, water, earth, air, and ether). Also, the Rosicrucians see the rose as a symbol of hidden wisdom, using it as a symbol in their cross.

The color of the rose is also important.

A wilted rose is a sign of a relationship gone bad. According to Jung, the rose is always the symbol for wholeness, representing, in the form of the mandala, a symbol for the order of the world.... Little Giant Encyclopedia

The opposites and contradictions that are in need of differentiation and balance. Your ambivalence is becoming known, which is a positive development.

Dreamers Dictionary

The number Two is a symbol of partnership, dualism, contrasts, light and dark, polarity, the Light and the Darkness. Two is the symbol of the moon and regarded as feminine. It stands for gentleness, sensitivity, rich imagination, creative talents, idealism, and romance. Two-type people are less strong than One-people, but they have patience and perseverance. They are not very assertive, are overly sensitive, and tend to be melancholy. Two-people are balanced, thrive on harmony, are restrained, passive, and give in easily. Friendships are important to them and arc nurtured.

Generally speaking, Two might be a symbol of polarity— contradictions, good versus evil, spirit versus matter. It represents femininity, the ability to give and receive, and freedom of decision. This number tells you that everything has two sides and encourages you to reconcile contradictions and opposites or to balance them. See Moon.

Ancient symbol for innocence and purity.

The unicorn places its horn in the lap of the virgin; it cant be caught in any other way. It is able to remove poison and its effects; it loves happiness. It may also be a sign of flight into an irrational fairy-tale world. Today, the unicorn also means hope of the removal of all differences, as well as fear of contradictions. Innocence and sexual urges are also connected to the image of the unicorn, and the dreamer is posing the question: How do I see my desires without feeling guilty? It is a question about the “purified animalistic self.” According to Jung, the symbol of self.... Little Giant Encyclopedia

Cleansing and innocence, attraction, and openness. Symbol of virginity and innocence.

A desire to go through life undefiled.

The color white in a dream points to purity—the dreamer is either living a pure life or is longing for it. One is seeking cleansing, and probably is already cleansed in a certain sense, simply by having a dream about the color white. But it could also suggest exaggerated cleanliness, an addiction to washing and cleaning, etc.

On the other hand, white can also be an expression of fear, such as the white whale in Moby Dick and the great white shark. Here the reference is to a blinding white color. Ghosts, like those appearing as mice during delusional episodes (delirium tremens), are always white.

The archetype of the wise man is usually clad in white (the guru, and also the physician). White is also the fundamental symbol for the animus; it addresses the male intellect and also male aggression (when white is experienced as blinding and gleaming).

The union of Red and white is that of contradiction: it is the symbol of the mystical marriage and Tantric sexuality (white semen and red menstrual blood). Here is where innocence meets the physical body and where heaven meets hell. Red and white are the colors of alchemy as well as the colors in the coats-of-arms of England and Switzerland.

Mabinogion, the ancient Welsh epic poem, refers to the white dogs of the underworld, except they have red noses and red eyes.

According to Freud, white always points to the feminine.... Little Giant Encyclopedia

Islamic Dream Interpretation

(Demolishing; Desperado; Destroying; Plunderer; Reversal of sentence) A wrecker in a dream has negative connotations. He represents a person with many contradictions, a violator of others’ rights, someone who breaks things apart, who ruins things, someone who negates his promises or covenants, or one who breaks his own rules. On the other hand, if a wrecker demolishes something to replace it with something better, or to reverse an unjust sentence in the dream, he then represents a true human being, and one’s dream carries a positive meaning.
