Heraldry, Dream Interpretation


(see Signage, Pictographs)

In the Middle Ages, a person’s coat of arms revealed a great deal, including family lineage, trades, and characteristics. These often appeared on armor so that honors won in battle could be properly attributed (and so you didn’t accidentally kill an ally).

For your dream, consider first what appears on heraldry 7 for more clues. Each item and color symbolizes aspects of you, your relationships with others, your profession, and how all these facets of your life intermingle. Additionally, having an item like this show up in your dream may represent an unfulfilled need to set yourself apart somehow, and make your mark.

Movement or guidance to the left, in most cultures, is regarded as a negative sign. In medieval times, for the purpose of heraldry, left was called “sinister,” reflecting the overall negative feelings toward this side of the body.

Right is a beneficial direction (note the term righteous), generally revealing positive actions and motivations.

Movement upward may be a type of ascension dream that shows your personal progress, hopes, and improvement.

Downward movement may show dissension, fatality, or pessimism that leads to feeling literally “down.” Alternatively, this can signify a new focus on your internal nature—an exploration that often proves very useful to personal growth.

When two directions are featured at the same time, this symbolizes harmony and balance between opposites (see Cross). Conversely, this can also indicate an internal tug of war between two facets of your being.

Being shown directions by a compass or a map reveals feelings of being somewhat lost or out of place in your current situation (see Blueprints, Schematics).

Each direction on a compass has slightly different meanings. North is cool, denoting frozen movement and frosty emotions. East is the point of the rising .raw, bringing hope and a new beginning. South is for fire, which can warm, energize, or consume depending on its potency, and West is the water or emotional center where fountains of creativity or floods of feeling may originate....
