Example:4I was outdoors in my underpants teaching a group of people. Looking down I saw my genitals were exposed and I had female organs. I felt OK’ (Bill S). Although Bill works in the building trade, he finds it easy to cook, look after his children, cry, and accept his ‘female’ characteristics. Being both sexes: might also suggest feeling uncertain about our own gender, or having problems in the role of our own sex.
Spiritually this represents the divine union or sacred marriage and suggests the masculine and feminine aspects of god united in perfect balance. It is the balance sought by all alchemists, and is an image that occurs in dreams as we become more spiritually proficient.
Psychological / emotional perspective: As we grow and mature, we begin to understand that certain behaviour is appropriate or acceptable. This may mean that other natural emotions, reactions and sensitivities are suppressed and can surface as difficulties later on in life as we search for autonomy. These may cause us a great deal of confusion and can be perceived in dreams as hermaphrodism, with either the masculine or feminine attributes becoming noticeable.
Material aspects: When we dream of a hermaphrodite, we may be having uncertainties about our ability to adjust to the roles usually played by our own sex or about our own individual gender profile. Interestingly, as we learn and understand more about ourselves, we attempt to achieve a balance between the logical and the sensitive sides of our nature. This can appear as hermaphrodism in a dream as we sort ourselves out.
Dreaming of a hermaphrodite (someone who is both masculine and feminine) signifies our attitude to bisexuality, or androgyny – the perfect balance within one person of the masculine and feminine qualities.
Our universe presents opposites and contradictions, thus making it so unique and vast.
To dream that you are a hermaphrodite refers to having opposite characteristics in your personality and indicates a sense of balance.
