The Bedside Dream Dictionary

As mentioned in all relevant dream symbols, bodies of water represent your unconscious, your emotions and your accumulated soul experiences. Depending on the content of the dream, several different interpretations could be made.

The boat in your dream could represent you and the manner you navigate through your emotions. It could symbolize the voyage of your life, an adventure and exploration of your unconscious, or a connection to the people in your dream by pointing out something that all of you have in common (in the same boat). When interpreting this dream, consider the kind of voyage and the type of boat. Superstition-based dream interpretation books say that if the voyage is calm, you should go forward with your plans. However, if it is a very stormy voyage, get ready for an emotional upset (or challenge). ...But O the ship, the immortal ship! O ship aboard the ship! Ship of the body, ship of the soul, voyaging, voyaging, voyaging.  -- Walt Whitman... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

As a metal, mercury is a universal alchemical symbol representing the yin. It is the symbol of the passive and the undifferentiated state which may be found deep within the psyche. Chinese refer to it as “liquid silver” and it corresponds to the dragon and to bodily fluids of blood, semen, water and, at times, to the kidneys.

The planet Mercury may be seen as following the Sun (universal father; consciousness; life) and the Moon (universal mother; birth; unconscious). In Greek mythology Hermes was the messenger of the gods and the god of speed. This intelligent and quick witted immortal, easily traveled between heaven, earth and the underworld. Seeing the planet Mercury or the metal in your dream may represent your need for communication, adaptation and movement. All of these may be necessary for daily life. However, this powerful dream symbol may be calling your attention to more personal and intrinsic matters. It may suggest a need to look carefully into your internal world. By doing so, you may become aware of a need to the develop a more fluid ability to navigate within your psyche, which includes your thoughts, motives, feelings and intuition; then notice the way all of these components are translated into and effect daily life....

Magic, another world, self, reflection. It is a symbol of vanity and superficiality. You may be concerned about your image and the way you present yourself to the world. Some say that if you see a clear image, you may be getting a glimpse of your true self. Broken mirrors always seem to be a sign of bad luck, or, at least, represent some distortions. On a deeper level the mirror can be considered to be a representation of the intellect.

The intellect is an instrument of navigation and is constantly persuading us to identify ourselves. When we think about this, it makes a lot of sense. Our self-identity is very much connected to the way we look (not only superficially but also characteristically as man - woman, young - old, etc). We use this self-identity, which is greatly a production of our intellect, to navigate through life. ... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

(see Abyss, Bridge, Cage, Cliff, Dam, Gate, Hole)

Traffic jams (see Car): Taking a direction perceived as free from trouble, only to find the way blocked for some unknown reason. Usually this pertains to external circumstances that you cannot control, but find frustrating.

Walls or barriers: If walls can talk, what are yours telling you? Is it too soon to move forward, or is the wall a kind of test to overcome? Also note that walls can symbolize limitations that are imposed by family, friends, job, or culture.

Fence: This reveals perceived class restrictions and prohibitions. Alternatively, it you’re sitting on the fence, by all means make up your mind! Falling off a fence speaks of taking on a project that you are simply incapable of handling considering your other responsibilities right now.

To avoid being the proverbial Humptv Dumpty, carefully balance your schedule and duties before taking on anything else.

Consider who or what is causing the barrier you see in your dream. What part of your nature provides the best tool to remove that obstruction (the rational, intuitive, or emotional self)?

Is the obstacle natural or human made? Natural obstacles represent something that would happen to anyone approaching this same situation.

For example, a barrier reef standing between you and an island indicates everyday problems. Simply navigate around them so that you can rest in a safe haven. Conversely, human-made obstacles symbolize manufactured problems or delays. Such obstacles can be self-originated or caused by external forces.... The Language of Dreams

Interpretation of subways is based on your experience with this mode of transportation.

If you regularly use the subway, you may need to look at the other parts of the dream more carefully.

If the subway is not a regular part of your daily routine but is the primary dream image then you can consider it to be symbolic of the way that you navigate through your own emotions and hidden parts of self.

The subway is under the ground and represents the unconscious parts of self. All of us interact on conscious and unconscious levels.

(see Ammunition, Armor, Axe, Knife, Fighting, Sword, Whip)

Taking up a weapon reveals hostility or fear that you may be repressing during waking hours. Turn to look upon the object of your actions. Sometimes just facing your true feelings is enough to begin the healing process.

Guns are violent, but impersonal. These reveal a source of anger or anxiety that you would prefer to keep at arm’s length. How healthy this distance is for you, however, is questionable, or your dreams would not reveal it.

A catapult indicates the ability to circumnavigate an obstacle by ingenious thought and assertive action.

Cannons can fire over a large distance, meaning the perceived threat is not nearby. Additionally, they may symbolize things that you value very little (e.g., something

best used as “cannon fodder”). As an omen, cannons portend a struggle that engages powerful torces.
