Herbs – Hyacinth Dream Symbols & Meanings

Highways (Roads) Dreams
(see Bus, Car, Path)
Highways carry you toward, or away from, someone or something. Other parts of the dream are important to meaning here, such as billboards, buildings, and people or vehicles that are traveling on the same highway.
Being lost on the highway: Needing to make a decision, but not having a clear picture of what all the options offer. Alternatively, feeling as if you have lost your faith or spiritual focus.
Stranded on a highway: A type of desertion dream. Also, a need within to reach out and ask for aid, otherwise the vehicle of your life may remain stalled.
Hitchhiking down: Wanderlust; the desire to release all responsibilities and experience some adventure. Alternatively, riding on someone else’s talents, abilities, or finances, instead of being independent.
Fork in the road: A determination that must be made fairly quickly or the opportunity may be lost. Two vehicles taking separate parts of this fork represent individuals or situations moving away from one another.

Freudian: A vaginal emblem.
Jungian: The subconscious, or an opening to this realm.
Aspects of the self that you’ve hidden or fear.
Manholes represent pitfalls and traps that can be plunged into, often without noticing the danger beforehand.
Falling into a hole symbolizes a hazard that was either unforeseen or underestimated. This can also be a descent into the subconscious, or a deepening depression.
Each holiday has a unique ambiance that depends on your family’s culture and religion. Consequently, any holiday celebration that appears in your dream must be considered with that background in mind. For example, Christians celebrate Easter as the resurrection of Christ, and might therefore interpret this holiday in a dream as significant to personal restoration. To a modern pagan, however, this date honors the spring, fertility, and earth’s renewal, the implied symbolism being productivity, hope, or healthful rejuvenation.
Consider the name of the holiday in a metaphorical context. For example, dreaming of April Fool’s might reflect feelings of foolishness that stem from ill-considered actions, words, or pranks.
The need to honor and remember one’s family traditions.
A memory from previous holidays that somehow reflects, or affects, current situations.

Creative inspiration. In Rome, this was an emblem of poetry and eloquence, especially with words. For a writer or speaker, this is an excellent omen.

Love, romance, and commitment. The term honeymoon comes from the Teutonic tradition of celebrating marriage with a month of mead drinking; mead is a wine made with a base of honey.
Sounding: A type of announcement or judgment dream. Note that the angels of heaven often presaged major matters with horns, as did court musicians (see Music).

To better understand what horse medicine and wisdom can bring to your life, learn about all about horse symbolism.
Dreams about horses can symbolize the following:
In earlier times, horses equated to movement and transition much as modern vehicles (see Airplane, Bus, Car, Spaceship) do now.
Burdens that come from labors. Horses were often work animals on farms, and were highly valued. In what condition does the horse appear? If run-down and abused, this represents feeling unappreciated no matter how much you do. On the other hand, if the horse is well fed and groomed, it symbolizes a kind “task master” who really values your efforts.
Ancient Greeks revered the horse as a sacred creature to Artemis, the goddess of the moon and forests. Consequently, this may also be an alternative earth or tree dream.
Spiritual sojourns. Mohammed rode a horse on his mystical journey from Mecca to Jerusalem and then on to heaven.
Galloping: Ecstasy, ambition, and the emotional self. Conversely, a tethered horse reveals one of these things being restrained.
A stallion: Male virility.
Look to see who’s got the reins in this dream-the creature or its rider. If the creature, it’s time to reclaim your control!
Finding a horseshoe: A nearly universal emblem of good luck.
White horse: In German and English traditions, this is a harbinger of death.
If the horse is happily cavorting, this may be a visual pun for horseplay. Take care that no one accidentally gets hurt by your current jovial outlook.
Psychic powers emerging. Folklorically, horses are said to sense or see spirits and have foreknowledge, similar to dogs.
Seahorses represent being transported into the waters of intuition or the subconscious with significant insight resulting.
Winged horses symbolize fame, eloquence, poetry, and the muse. Let your imagination fly on its wings.
Time management. Is time slipping quickly away from you, or are you seizing the day? Alternatively, consider if you’re pacing yourself well.
The sands of time in a more universal context express the nearness of beginnings and endings. For this dream, how much sand is left in the timer is important to interpretational value.

Dreams about hummingbirds can symbolize the following:
The energy of pure joy to keep you aloft the flower of the world, extracting the nectar of life where you go.
This is the only bird in nature that can fly backwards. As such, consider what part of the past you’re retrieving for productive review.
Love. In folk magic, hummingbird feathers were a common component in love charms. Just take care that this is not forced or manipulated. Such a relationship will not last.
Among the Native Americans and Basque people, this represents total honesty. They believe that hummingbirds cannot tell a lie.
Reveling in freedom and playfulness. Scientists have shown that these birds seem to enjoy both tremendously. How much free time or play time have you had lately?
(see Candy, Dieting, Eating, Fasting, Foods by Type)
A situational or circumstantial dream resulting from going to bed hungry or having an unsatisfied craving.
A symbolic manifestation of desires for things like achievement, adventure, passion, etc.
Essential portions of the self that are being neglected, and therefore metaphorically hunger for your attention.
(see Animals, Weapons)
A desire for conquest. For what are you currently hunting, and is it truly something over which you should try to take dominion?
Is the creature used as food, or is it being hunted in sport? If for food, this may be a type of hunger dream, or representative of your need for fulfillment. If being hunted in sport, the animal may symbolize a coveted object or person that remains elusive.
