With transiting Mars and Neptune in Pisces opposing my natal Uranus/Pluto conjunction, I’ve been attracting a lot of clients who request dream interpretations. Dreamwork has long been a fascination of mine. Having grown up in an Ojibwa household, I hold great respect for what our unconscious mind tries to tell us. You see, when you sleep your spirit is free to roam the world. Your dreams are what we remember of its adventures. Asibikaashi, the spider grandmother, taught women how to make dreamcatchers. Any bad dream would not be able to re-enter the conscious world of children. The caught bad dream would then evaporate in the morning sun and disappear.
Over the years, I’ve experimented with various methods of dream interpretations from Freud to Gestalt, dream interpretation books and lots of other sources. I found Freud to be pretty useless and the books not a lot of help but Gestalt’s method of getting the symbol of the dream to express its feelings was something I could use. Recently, I’ve started to use Rod Suskin’s method of dream interpretation and I’ve found it extremely useful, both for my clients and also for my own troubling dreams.
