Dreams about a Phoenix are some of the more powerful omens that can come to us in the dream state and can be symbols of the following:

Reincarnation, rebirth, and new beginnings. Known by the Egyptians as the bennu, this fire bird renews itself by making a nest in a raging conflagration from which it is born anew.

Longevity: Several ancient texts, including the Talmud, intimate this creature can live as long as one thousand years.

Dreams about a Phoenix generally include fire. Learn all about the Element of Fire so you can delve deeper into the meaning of your dreams!

Photocopier Dreams

The loss of individuality and personal vision to that of your peer group, society, or culture.

Cloned ideas or lacking originality in your approaches.

The loss of value or appeal because of having been overexposed to one person, object, or situation repeatedly. Just as a child with candy, there can be too much of a good thing.

Photographs Dreams

Contemplation about your past. Look to see if any theme develops in the pictures envisioned, or if they have central object or character. This item or theme will help your interpretation.

Memories that may have gotten pushed aside, but need to surface now to help you better understand or cope with a specific situation or individual.

If the photograph itself isn’t familiar, look to see what it contains and review those emblems herein. In this case, it may be a snapshot from the subconscious or Higher Self of something that you need to know and remember in the days ahead.

Physician Dreams

(see Authority Figures, Healing, Medicine, Operation)

If you have a tendency to always help others while neglecting your own needs, the physician in your dreams is the Super Ego counseling that to be a healer, you must first heal yourself.

A gentle nudge to seek medical evaluation or treatments for something you have either ignored or overlooked up until now.

The patient in this dream can represent a person or group with whom you need to patch things up. It may also be situational.

Pictographs Dreams

By definition, pictographs are picture-like symbols used to communicate specific concepts. On the dream plane, these can be very potent keys for unlocking deeper meanings. A comprehensive listing of pictographs is a subject worthy of a complete book, but for the purpose of illustration, here are a few examples:

Equal Sign: The need for symmetry and equity.

Circle: An alternative lunar or solar emblem. Completeness and cycles. Enclosure and protection.

Square: The four elements in balance. A pictorial pun for someone who is socially awkward. Truthfulness (e.g., a “square deal”).

Flat: Feeling as if life has lost its flavor. A project that fizzled out. Something that has gotten slightly off-key and needs tuning for harmonious interaction.

Male: An emphasis on the masculine nature and associated characteristics.

Tyr: The rune of the warrior showing strong convictions and the willingness to fight for a just cause.

Triangle: The triune nature, balance, and an alternative fire emblem.

Circle/Wheel: The winds, the four directions, and a type of cross emblem.

Infinity: Something that has longevity, or that goes on seemingly forever.

Heart: Matters of love or emotions.

Check Mark: Correctness or incorrectness, red check marks denoting the latter.

Pie Dreams

(see Eating, Fruit or Nuts by type)

An alternative circle symbol.

A sliced pie reflects your ability to judge things fairly and equitably. How even are the slices? Is someone getting the lion’s share?

Dreaming of mince pies foretells the fulfillment of wishes and improved luck.

Birds or other unexpected items coming out of a pie symbolize the need to look at a person or situation more closely. Something here is not what it seems, and will surprise you.

Pig Dreams

(see Animals, Farm)

Learn all about Spirit, Totem & Power Animals!

Dreams about Pigs can symbolize The Year of the Pig/Boar in the Chinese Zodiac.

Figuratively, someone who is always “hamming it up.”

Among the Celts, an emblem of success and overcoming the odds. Pig was the favored food for Celtic victory feasts (see Eating, Meat).

Norse: Rebirth, honor, and new beginnings. In Valhalla, Valkyries feast on a reborn sow.

Pigeon Dreams

(see Birds, Feathers, Wings)

Learn all about Spirit, Totem & Power Animals!

The ability to maintain your roots and find your way back home, even when circumstances try to steer you off course. Pigeons are excellent navigators.

Fertility or productivity. Pigeons are close to rabbits in their ability to breed rapidly.

A pictorial play on words representing someone who seems gullible (e.g., having a “pigeon” on the line).

Pillars Dreams

(see Archway, Building, Concrete, Stones)

While these are sometimes considered phallic due to their shape, in ancient Greece pillars were regularly carved in the shape of a woman whose visage was modeled after a priestess of the Moon Goddess. In this form, pillars can emphasize the need to balance gender-specific outlooks, or to accept the traits you exhibit from the opposite gender as a building block to your whole personality.

What do these pillars uphold? If, for example, they support a temple roof, this implies having strong foundations and evidence for your beliefs. However, cracking and decayed pillars reflect a belief system that you have outgrown, but not left behind.

Ancient Egyptian: A hieroglyph called the Pillars of Horus was placed on the walls of homes to keep negativity away from the residents. Such symbols inscribed on your dream’s buildings may represent feelings of oppression or danger from which you wish to protect yourself and your kin.

A person’s best attributes that are worthy of recognition or honor (e.g., being a “pillar of truth” or “pillar of the community”).

Pine Dreams

(see Forest, Trees)

The scent of pine in a dream reflects either a need for cleansing and purification of some type, or refreshment for one’s energy. The scent of pine was regularly used in sick rooms for both purposes.

Long lasting results from your labors. Pine trees stay green through the winter, implying immorality.

Sticky situations, clingy emotions, or barbed conversations: Pine needles are quite sharp and often bear tacky sap that seems to get on everything with which they come in contact. Are you being likewise prickly or sticky in the way you deal with people or a particular circumstance?

Pink Dreams

(see Color)

Gnostic: The color of resurrection, notifying you that your old way of thinking, believing, or living is giving way to a brand-new adventure.

In the Victorian language of flowers, the color of friendship.

Health or well-being (e.g., being “in the pink”).

Pipe Dreams

(see Smoke)

Pixies Dreams

(see Fairy)

Plagues Dreams

(see Healing, Medicine, Physician)

An alternative type of judgment dream. Many ancient cultures regarded widespread sickness as a sign of divine displeasure.

Blights perceived as being on your soul or spirit, like a curse.

Bitterness that rots away inside, creating all manner of dis-ease.

AIDS: In literal terms, AIDS is the plague of the 21st century, so this dream may express an honest fear playing itself out, or a homophobic reaction.

Leprosy: Feeling like your life is falling apart a little at a time, or that you are slowly losing yourself to someone or something. Alternatively, an experience or action that makes you feel “unclean” (see Dirt).

What or who does the plague affect? The answer to this question can reveal one’s anger, moral conflict, or prejudice pertaining to a group, person, or situation.

Planet Dreams

(see individual Planets, Space, Stars, Zodiac Signs)

Dreams about planets symbolize someone (potentially yourself) who is constantly hovering around others for security, attention, or companionship.

Cycles that repeat themselves, but usually over very long periods of time. Think back over the years and see if what’s happening right now doesn’t have a twin in your past.
