Dream Interpretation - Here's one for you to try!
animals I was thinking about
I was driving around this small country town in the hollow of some mountains
It must have been late spring or summer because it was very nice and warm
I stopped at a roadside farmer/rancher’s cart where he was selling animals
Small animals in a pen in the shade
All kinds of little animals, and some not so little any more, it was kind of like a
Petting zoo you could walk into and choose an animal for your farm.
Well, I didn’t have a farm
But in my dream, my husband and I owned a small cottage in the sun on the
Side of a mountain with some land and we had a sizable vegetable garden
And a barn
Having some animals would be nice, I thought
Something to care for, while I was writing and we were up there all alone
I picked up a small white rabbit, and walked around the pen
While the farmer and a lady discussed what she still needed for her farm.
While I was walking this animal in my hands changed from a rabbit to a hamster
And finally to a small pig and then jumped out of my arms and started running
Down the street
I followed him the best I could before he reached a busier street
It turns out he just really needed to relieve himself
So that gave me a chance to catch up with him, and scoop him up when he was done
That’s when I realized he was too heavy for me to carry and the pig probably shouldn’t be my first choice.
The farmer thanked me when I came back and I told him what me and my husband were looking for, although I admitted, my husband didn’t know yet I was out pet/animal shopping today
I just happened upon his stand.
The farmer laughed and said he thought the pig might be too much more that I wanted to handle and was holding a lamb in his arms.
He suggested the lamb and I thought how lovely it looked with its white fur and long legs too big for its body.
I would have to talk to my husband first, I wanted it to be a joint decision.
I think in order to interpret a dream you really need to understand a few things about the dreamer and their mindset at the time of the dream:
I do not live in a cottage in the mountains, but wish I did live in this exact place and I am not married. In the dream, my husband was referred to and very much in my heart and mind, but when I thought of him I didn’t see his face in my head.
I am not religious and do
not follow any christian church although I am aware that these symbols have for some a
religious meaning – for me they do not. To me flowers, animals, insects, and
birds, etc always represent magic properties or things I am trying to bring
into my life.I am a believer in the earth and the moon and that we all live in harmony with their cycles, I honor that and the Old Ways.
I have not analyzed this dream, I thought I’d let you all have a crack at it first, if you like. :)
