moved from dream journal forum
I’ve never been big on picking up dream dictionaries or having other people help in the interpretation of my dreams… probably because I always figured that since dreams are the most purely YOU thing you can do no one would be able to decipher the cryptic messages better. However, there were two semi-lucid dreams I have had recently whose meanings didn’t completely unfold until I asked my friends for input. Most of these two dreams’ meanings have fallen into place and I am comfortable with their new messages.
All that being said, both dreams were extremely beautiful and masked powerful messages. One included two suns, one that developed from a hole in the sky. The “artificial” sun (as I’ve come to call it) had all the power of the original sun, only it lacked the control. This false sun burnt people, cities and life as it overshadowed the true benevolent sun. A dream dictionary stated that the sun can be a metaphor for the self. This makes sense due to the issues I’ve been struggling with in my daily life. The artificial sun represented this observer-self I created as an attempt to objectively evaluate my true self. While observing myself, I became overly critical of my flaws and “burnt” out certain aspects of my life. That’s the gist of that dream’s meaning.
Sadly, I cannot figure out any meaning for the moon other than, perhaps, the more sensitive, subtle and emotional self that I’ve never been in touch with (up until I discovered lucid dream, I’ve been a man of science, hard proof and reason… all of which disintegrate in my dream realms ) In this dream, the true moon was mirrored by a false one that charged towards earth in the shape of a parabola. Only when it was nearest to the surface - so that craters could be seen with the naked eye - did it take off in the opposite direction and miss collision with our planet.
Sorry for the long post, but I was just wondering if anyone else had similar dreams or maybe some input as to what two moons in a dream could mean.
