I love Astrological Dreamwork because our subconscious very often gives us such a great insight into complicated situations and emotions. In this interpretation, the Dreamer wanted to make a quick exit to stage left. But things take a rather unusual turn. Whatever could it mean?

By the way, if you’d like a dream interpreted, I can help. I know how disturbing dreams can be and understanding them is a great source of comfort. Please see my products page to book an appointment.

The Dream

The Dreamer says: “I had been at a conference and knew I was not welcome. I could feel the hostility but, as I do in such situations, I completely ignored this and concentrated on what I was there to do, which was to deliver some books.

“A former friend pulled me aside and asked me to clarify something and seemed completely astounded by my account of events. We made amends with me saying something like “And I’m never going to talk about this again” and I went on to complete my task. On my way out of the building, I had to quickly walk through a banquet hall just before festivities were about to start. With the books delivered, I was more than happy to be on my way.

“I saw someone with whom I have had an off-on relationship (an SO) sitting at a table and he seemed stunned to see me so I pretended I didn’t see him. He jumped up from the table to try to stop me and when I ignored him, he grabbed me by the hand. I stopped and turned because I didn’t want anyone to see us. But we were standing in front of everyone. I tried to be all cool but he insisted I follow him by pulling me in the opposite direction. My thinking was that if I didn’t make a fuss, no one would pay us attention. So I let him lead me by the hand, past the Master of Ceremonies (and a mutual friend) who was about to make a speech.

“The MC looked at us, looked at us holding hands and said into the mic: “You have got to be kidding me.” This was said in a tone that expressed surprise yet also seemed to explain something. There was this murmur in the crowd so we both knew everyone had either seen us or were talking about us. I can’t remember any further.”

The Symbols

The main symbols in the dream are:

–A large public event

–The feeling of being disliked

–Reconciliation with friends

–Being acknowledged when wanting to make a quick, unassuming getaway

–Holding hands with a SO

The Meaning

This dream is a really good example of how recent events affect the Dreamworld. The Dreamer had been talking about a conference with the SO and how much they didn’t enjoy attending that event. There had been a certain level of animosity concerning the Dreamer, the SO and their circle of friends. Before the dream, the SO had been talking about someone who has created a lot of previously unknown problems for the Dreamer (in this case also with the former friend who had not spoken to her in several years ever since an alleged ‘incident’ with an adversary).

The chart for when the astrologer heard the dream

In the dream chart, Venus, the chart ruler, is opposite to Uranus so the Dreamer was feeling disconnected from everyone at the conference. The Venus of the dream chart is exactly square the Dreamer’s natal Mercury which may explain the challenge of delivering those books in terms of difficult emotions (also Venus was square Saturn and we both have harsh Venus-Saturn contacts natally).

The Mercury of the dream is on the ascendant in Libra, ruling the 9thhouse of the dream and is trine to Jupiter in Aquarius in the 4thhouse. Hence, aside from feeling that she shouldn’t be there, there was no difficulty in doing what she needed to do. And then of course thinking she could make a quick getaway. The Dreamer also indicated the dream was a good connection in terms of other recent events (the SO signing a contract and the Dreamer with a newly published book). Also note Mercury rules the 11th house, the house of friends and acquaintances.

The Pisces Full Moon could indicate a rescue/rescuer theme. However, the Dreamer resisted being rescued and more intent on showing how unbothered she was. The SO was persistent and wouldn’t release her hand and the Dreamer just accepted. Mercury of course, as the ruler of the 9th, is about hands. On reflection, the Dreamer remembered the SO’s hands exactly as they were in real life.

The Dreamer confirmed that recent events indeed had a profound impact on the dream and reflected. She adds that she felt her exit was the best possible outcome for a tricky situation and the she woke up in a state of happiness.
