In the Tarot, the emblem of earthly concerns—e.g., money, jobs, possessions.

An alternative circle symbol due to their shape.

Improved luck or finances. Found pennies, and coins with the date of your birth are tokens of good fortune. Similarly, in Old Europe turning a pocketed coin by the light of a crescent moon or burying a silver coin beneath your doorstep encourages fortuity and prosperity.

A positive change in the weather (literal or figurative). When sailing ships were a predominant mode of transportation, found coins would be tossed on deck or imbedded in the masthead to ensure fair weather and good winds.

Spiritual protection and well-being. Ancient Egyptians placed coins on a mummy’s eyes so that the deceased could pay the ferryman and move safely into the next life.

Each coin may have more than one connotation.

For example, pennies are luck)’, but in modern society they are also regarded as somewhat worthless. So, a dirty old penny bearing the year of your birth being passed by in your dream could expose poor self- images, for example.

Flipping coins: Choices to make, or the interaction of fate and “chance” in your life. ... The Language of Dreams

Dreaming of a specific body of water such as a lake must be analyzed according to its setting and the entire contents of the dream and much like dreaming of water in general, the clearness of the lake also has to do with the omen or situation it refers to. Clear water being the best.

To dream of being in a boat on a calm, serene lake shows that you have much peace and happiness coming your way.

If the lake is storm tossed then your life will take a turn for an emotional upheaval and possible losses. Seeing a lake in a glen with sunshine sparkling on the surface portends great good luck in all your endeavors.... Encyclopedia of Dreams

The Way of Dreams and Visions

General Meaning: Also referring to the sea.

The ocean is a picture of mystery and untapped blessing.

Dreams Positive:

If you have good childhood memories of the ocean, then it would represent pleasure and joy for you. It would speak of just letting go and floating, letting the tides carry you.

• If you dream of floating or swimming in the ocean, then the Lord is saying that you can trust in Him and enjoy His presence. You do not need to be afraid, but can just jump in! • If you dream of a large wave that you surf or that you have control of, it speaks of the blessing of the Lord that is coming your way.

Negative:

If you dream of large waves engulfing you, this speaks of circumstances that are overwhelming you. It can also speak of the attack of the enemy that is coming in like a flood.

• Also if you have a fear of the ocean, then dreaming of being in the ocean speaks of being surrounded by your fears or having to confront your fear.

• Sometimes you might dream of a wave that washes everything away. Although it might seem negative at first, this could be of the Lord. Perhaps it is time for you to start afresh. This is a good picture of a death of a vision.

• Positive: A large wave although it can be negative, is also a good picture of the abundance of the Lord.

The Word says that if you cast your bread on the waters, that it will return to you.

• This is a picture of investing financially and spiritually into the Kingdom of God. As you keep giving out, you will reap the reward! • Ecclesiastes 11:1 cast your bread upon the waters: for you will find it after many days.

• The Red Sea Situation • If you see the Red Sea in the spirit, then the Lord has led you to face an impossible direction.

• You know that you cannot go back where you have come from, but it seems that the Lord is not talking either. You are unsure which way to go. We call this the ‘Red Sea Situation’.

• What the Lord is telling you to do is to make the first move. Moses cried out to the Lord about what to do and the Lord said to him, “Why are you crying to me? Speak to the Children of Israel, that they go forward!” (Exodus 14:15) • God was waiting for Moses to do something! He had brought them so far, but now it was their turn. As they took that step though, then God moved once again and parted the waters.

• If God has given you a direction and a promise and you see the Red Sea in front of you, you have a choice to make. Once you step out with that decision, God will back you up.

• Psalms 106:9 He rebuked the Red sea also, and it was dried up: so he led them through the depths, as through the wilderness.

Negative:

To be tossed around in the ocean speaks of not having a firm conviction of your own. It means that you do not have a secure footing in the Word, and you are allowing the enemy to throw you around.

• James 1:6 But let him ask in faith, nothing doubting.

For he that doubts is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed [about].

• The book of Hebrews also tells us that we should not be tossed around by every wind of doctrine.

• The meaning is the same.

If you dream of being tossed around, you do not have a firm understanding of doctrine, and the Lord is telling you to get your feet grounded!

A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

in dreams Although sex is symbolised in many dreams, where it appears directly it shows that the dreamer is able to accept their sexual urges and hurts more easily. What is then imponant is to attempt an understanding of what setting or drama the sexual element occurs in. Our psychological and sexual natures, like our physical, never stand still in develop­ment unless a pain or problem freezes them at a particular level of maturity. Therefore our sexual dreams, even if our sex life is satisfactory, show us what growth, what new challenge, is being met.

Example: My lover was standing behind me, and John, my husband, was standing in front of me. I was asking John to have sex with me and at the same time thinking, “Oh, hell, if he does he will think we have something going between us.” I felt no flow towards John but felt somehow I was trying to tell my lover that I was desirable’ (Sally A). Sally’s dream needs no interpretation. Such clear dreams show that Sally is ready to be directly aware of what she is doing in her relationships.

If the sex in the dream is deeply symbolised, it suggests the dreamer is less willing to be aware of their motivations or connected painful feelings. Even though Sally’s dream was clear, it was still dealing with an area of her sexuality she was not clearly conscious of.

If she had been aware, it is doubtful whether she would have dreamt it.

Example: ‘I was in a farmyard.

A small boy climbed all over the bull. It became terribly angry. It had been chained without attention too long. Now it tore away and sought the cows.

The gates were closed, but the bull smashed through the enclosing fence. I rushed to the fence and sat astride it, but on seeing that the bull smashed it like match wood, I looked around for some safe place.

The bull charged the first cow to mount it, but so terrible was its energy and emotion that it could not express as sex. It smashed the cow aside as it had done the fence. Then it rushed the next and tossed it over its head, charging and smashing the next. I climbed into somebody’s garden, trying to get out of the district’ (Arthur J). Although this dream depicts Arthur’s chained’ sexual drive using the bull, it is still fairly obvious.

If we consider the setting and plot of the dream, as suggested above, we see that Arthur is desperately trying to avoid responsibility for, or try­ing to escape, his own sexual drive—figuratively ‘sitting on the fence’.

Example: ‘My husband and I were walking down a road. We were going in the same direction together. I started to sing with a very happy feeling but then felt I should stop because he would say the happiness was because I had had sex. I sensed he knew what I was thinking as I walked along. He then quietly began to sing and the dream ended with me smiling to myself. We had sexual cut off for four weeks but had made love that afternoon’ (Joan W). In talking about this dream Joan said she felt it slightly embarrassing to admit that sex gave her feelings of happiness. She liked to believe she was perfectly happy without it. It is probably out of the slight conflict between her conscious attitude and her feeling of well-being after sex that the dream was produced.

A dream of a ship predicts unexpected honors.

The motion of a ship tossing on the ocean is symbolic of the rhythm of sexual mating.... Psycho Dream Interpretation

Dreamers Dictionary

Symbol: The ship is a symbol of your journey in life and from birth to death.

Vision: In a mans dream, the ship represents his longing to love a woman (a battleship stands for a prostitute, a sailboat for a young girl).

A departing ship means a separation or change. Being a passenger on a ship: you are dissatisfied with your life and want a change. Boarding the wrong ship: take a close look at your professional and personal relationships and goals—you have made wrong decisions.

The ship sinking: a serious warning about an unhealthy relationship.

Depth Psychology: The “ship of your life” can bring you to happy as well as unhappy places. Did the ship travel in “calm Waters”? Was it tossed about by waves or a violent Storm? Did you know its destination? The rest of the images are very important, because they might indicate if you are on the “right course” or if you should turn around.

A shipwreck: a warning that dangers and difficulties that you have created yourself are threatening your life. See Boat, Ocean, Yacht.... Dreamers Dictionary

Tossing a coin into: Your wishes and hopes

A font of creativity 7 , wisdom, ideas, or knowledge that lies within just waiting to be tapped.

Because of the water element here, this can represent your emotions, or possibly the subconscious, into which your dream effectively lowers the bucket.

A source of healing. Sacred wells dotted the land in Old Europe. Sick people would travel to them and bathe in the water hoping the well’s nature spirits would grant rejuvenation.

Falling into a well reflects a sudden force or situation that propels you into deep introspection, ‘lake care, however, in such a journey that you don’t forget where the rope lies so that you can return with your discoveries safe and sound.... The Language of Dreams
