Seeds represent untapped potential, being the semen that fertilizes in earth’s womb. Each type of seed holds a wealth of promise, if properly sown, watered, and cared for. What attributes are you trying to develop, and how conscientiously are you tending those seeds?

Separation Dreams

(see Divorce)

An alternative type of desertion dream.

Seeing something that is whole divide into two parts equates to either a situational separation (such as in relationships), or purposefully separating your conscious self from a portion of subconscious awareness/feelings.

Separation into several sections may reveal your own multifaceted nature and parts of yourself that you are unwilling or unable to recognize consciously. This can also be an indicator of multiple personality disorder; however, any such serious malady should be professionally determined, not assumed or hypothesized.

Separating yourself from a person or situation in a dream is often a signal from your subconscious that you are actually ready to break those ties and venture out alone.

Servant – Servitude Dreams

Giving of yourself freely, but perhaps in excess.

Being in a situation or relationship in which one person is dominated by another’s rules, ideas, expectations, and/or requirements.

Marvels. There are seven wonders in the world, seven colors in the rainbow, etc.

Inventive energy that comes to fruition. Biblical creation took seven days, including God’s day of rest.

Sewing Dreams

(see Fabric, Needle)

The need to repair a relationship, a system of belief, or any other situation that has somehow been allowed to disintegrate, or torn apart by negativity.

Sewing machines represent having all the tools you need to fix a situation. Don’t be afraid to rely on your wisdom, talents, and insight.

Thread symbolizes the lines of fate and destiny that we all work within and weave. To break a thread is a negative omen of bad fortune or mishaps on the horizon.

Sexual Encounters Dreams

Aspects of physical relationships that you may be unwilling to recognize, or those about which you feel timid. For example, some people are uncomfortable talking about what really makes them feel good, or about what types of things they fantasize.

Fears and uncertainties about your physical performance in bed.

Unexpressed desires toward specific individuals. Sometimes these people are unobtainable and uninterested. In this case, the dream allows you to live out the fantasy in a socially acceptable manner.

Shadow Dreams

(see Black, Darkness)

Dark forces that threaten to undermine your spiritual quest. Note that these forces can also come from within.

Your own shadow or alternate persona. For the goodness to mean something quantifiable we must all overcome this darker side of the soul.

Shadow boxing represents an internal argument you’re having with your sense of morality.

Not having a shadow equates to someone with a soulless character, without depth or passion. In earlier times, anyone who did not bear a shadow was considered cursed, like vampires.

Sheep Dreams

(see Animals, Wool)

Learn all about Spirit, Totem & Power Animals!

A symbolic representation for a passive, shy, or docile person.

A sign that you, or someone you know, are too easily led astray by strong or charismatic people.

Black sheep represent the shadow, or feelings of isolation and rejection. Alternatively, this may reveal you are unafraid to pursue your own way, despite others’ opinions.

Among Christians, an emblem of those saved by grace.

Hebraic: Wealth, purity, and innocence. This was the only creature acceptable for the Passover observance.

Dreams about sheep could be symbolic of The Year of the Sheep in the Chinese Zodiac.

Shepherd Dreams

Being able to guide and control yourself or others. If the shepherd is seen with a flock, the flock represents those people whom you guide, or the characteristics within yourself over which you are exerting management.

Gentle love and concern that always maintains a respectful distance.

Ship Dreams

(see Boat, Water)

Water is symbolic of the subconscious. Learn about the Element of Water so you can better understand what your dream is trying to tell you.

Shoes Dreams

(see Barefoot, Clothes, Foot)

Dreams about shoes can have the following symbolism in your life:

Old, torn shoes symbolize snares along the path, or long, hard roads traveled to obtain your heart’s desire. These can also reveal a tendency to always fall back on what’s comfortable and known to you, instead of taking risks.

Boots are protective, so this dream may portend some rough footing ahead for which you should prepare.

Wearing unusual shoes in a dream may indicate a need to see things differently. Try looking at this situation from another perspective (e.g., “walking a mile in someone else’s shoes”).

The kind of shoes seen in the dream can reveal how you walk through life. For example, seeing baby shoes means that you’re very unsure of things, and compensate by moving slowly. Ballet shoes can disclose a person who either tiptoes through difficult situations, or someone who has unique grace and mobility.

Trying on shoes represents testing various options until you find the perfect one (e.g., “if the shoe fits, wear it”).

Wearing new shoes symbolizes change and transitions with which you may not be totally comfortable yet.

In Egypt and Greece, shoes were part of fertility rights, which is how they became part of marriage rituals today. So, the throwing of a shoe or seeing numerous shoes following behind you in a dream represents productivity or abundance.

Small shoes symbolize virginity, or being naive about worldly matters, as in the story of Cinderella.

Shopping Dreams

(see by item, Money, Prices)

Signage Dreams

Dreams about signs can have a variety of symbolic meanings:

Read any sign that appears in your dream, be it a highway marker, a street sign, an advertisement, or whatever. The messages thereon will often provide clues to the deeper meaning of your dream, if not unlock its meaning for you completely.

Traffic signs: On the dream plane, each traffic sign has some synonymous meaning to what it signifies to a car’s driver. For example, stop signs mean just that- stop whatever you’re doing and look all around for signs of danger or trouble. A yield sign indicates that you’re probably being too rigid and need to learn the value of flexibility. Signs for roadwork usually reveal that the path ahead may be a little bumpy or slower moving than you might like, so prepare to be patient. One that reads “no shoulder” shows that you overexposed yourself in some situation, and need to back off a bit for your own good.

Exit sign: We look for exits when we want to find the way out of a building. From what or whom are you trying to withdraw?

Street signs: If these signs are those that you pass regularly in your travels, consider this a circumstantial dream that needs no further explanation. On the other hand, street names can have very symbolic meanings. For example, one called “Normal Avenue” might reveal thoughts about your own sense of normalcy, and how you fit in with your peer group.

Written advertisements can show up in numerous places in your dream, from being part of a newspaper to appearing on a supermarket wall. The meaning for each is interpreted similarly to street signs, using the product name or use as the key. For example, a vitamin ad might be constructed as an admonition to take better care with your health, whereas an ad for a cruise chip might reveal a personal desire to take a vacation, or get more in tune with the water element.

Silver Dreams

(see Colors, Metals, Moon)

Depending on what is seen as silver, this may be an alternative type of coin or money dream.

An emblem of the feminine, lunar, intuitive nature.

Something within yourself that you treasure. See what shape the silver takes for more interpretive value. For example, seeing a silver heart may reveal that you consider a loving nature very valuable, and an essential part of your being.

Tarnished silver shows disuse or poor upkeep. What is it that’s being neglected?

Sinking Dreams

(see Directions)

Not realizing that you’re retreating from the real world, or a situation, only to be in worse trouble.

In quicksand: Losing your identity to a group, corporation, or set of circumstances. Alternatively, having your mobility or normal escape mechanism impeded by a person or situation.

Feeling hopelessly swallowed up by problems, emotions, or a relationship.

If this is not a frightening or uncomfortable sensation, it may be that you are traveling into your own subconscious, the animal nature, or Super Ego, and integrating the content.

If a boat is sinking, this can symbolize the end of a relationship, partnership, or other joint efforts, particularly profitable ones.

Six Dreams

(see Numbers)

In mainstream religions, six is often associated with evil, such as the number of the Beast (666) in the Book of Revelation.

Protection. The six-pointed Star of David, the emblem of Judaism, was frequently used as a protective talisman, bearing specific potency against evil.

An alternative type of crystal symbol, as many natural crystals have a hexagonal form.

May also be considered a number of completeness, as creation took six days, with God resting on the seventh (see Seven).

Among some Native American tribes, this is the number of mental or emotional strength.

Dreaming about Numbers can be a sign your higher self is urging you to learn about Numerology and the sacred meaning of Numbers.

Size Dreams

(see Magnification)

How large or how small things look in a dream is a very revealing factor. For example, seeing yourself as minute might indicate that your self-esteem needs work. Conversely, seeing someone in giant form reveals idolization, sometimes to a dangerous point that a person cannot possibly live up to in reality. Over- or underemphasized objects can be interpreted similarly, like a large heart equating to an immense capacity to give and receive love, or a tiny wall indicating something you see as only a very small obstacle to your goals.

Narrow or wide: Narrow might reveal narrow-mindedness, while wide angles show more openness and receptivity.

Skunk Dreams

(see Animal, Smells)

Learn all about Spirit, Totem & Power Animals!

Self-assertion and confidence. The skunk’s scent is a protective odor, but it is uniquely its own.

Getting the respect one is due. Skunks do not like confrontation, and usually withhold their spray until no other option is left. Have you been holding back in some area where recognition of your abilities is long overdue?

Irritating people or situations. Being sprayed by a skunk causes all kinds of distress, most of which stems from frustration about being in the wrong place at the wrong time!

Sky Dreams

(see Blue, Clouds, Space)

Frequently a masculine symbol. Both Hindus and Native Americans speak of “father sky” (see Men).

An alternative, higher level of awareness. Possibly a type of flying or ascent dream.

The transcendent, limitless self. An image that reconnects the dreamer to her/his heritage as a universal being (see Star).

Slum Dreams

(see Garbage, Poverty)

Disorderly, chaotic, or corrupt thoughts.

Financial or personal difficulties that create impoverished sensations, or lower self-esteem.

A subconscious editorial on urban conditions. How do you see this area? Is it improving or getting worse, and what role do you play in making things different?

An indicator of personal health. If the buildings are badly run-down, and litter lies everywhere, you’re probably not eating right or getting enough rest.

Smells Dreams

(see Incense, Perfume)

On the dream plane, smells frequently engender memories of past experiences and our reactions to those experiences. Like other senses, the way we feel about each aroma is very personal, and should be interpreted accordingly.

Smoke Dreams

(see Fire, Fog, Incense)

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

Not being completely truthful with yourself or others (e.g., “putting up a smoke screen”) in order to avoid an issue.

If you see yourself or someone else smoking a cigarette, this may be an oral fixation, or a symbolic substitution for other desires.

What feelings are you allowing to fester inside? Where there’s smoke, there’s fire, and something is definitely burning!

A type of message or oracle. The Native Americans sent smoke signals to communicate with one another, and many ancient civilizations used the smoke from sacrificial fires for divination. In this case, see if images appear in the smoke, and watch its direction of movement for more interpretive material.

Smoking a pipe is indicative of peace, and the sealing of a bond, especially if the pipe is offered to someone else, or shared around a group.

Snake Dreams

(see Animals, Dragon, Lizard)

Learn all about Spirit, Totem & Power Animals!

Dreams about snakes are incredibly psychic dreams and very powerful omens.

In the Old Testament, the snakes were the emblem of temptation and evil.

Greco-Roman: A symbol of renewed health and well-being. Note that the caduceus, a symbol of physicians, appears as two snakes entwined on a staff.

Transformation and development. The snake sheds its old skin to make room to grow.

Being bitten by a snake is not a bad omen, as it might seem initially. Instead, because of the snake’s regenerative power, it represents a new awareness developing within.

A phallic symbol that sometimes comes to women upon conception, or when the dreamer is figuratively pregnant with creative ideas and psychic impressions.

Dreams about snakes can symbolize The Year of the Snake in The Chinese Zodiac.

Snapdragon Dreams

In flower symbolism, a snapdragon signifies mercy and compassion. Dreams about snapdragons could be a sign that you are in a situation where kinder actions are needed either toward you or from you.

Dreaming of snapdragons could be nature’s humorous way of letting you know you’ve been a bit too ‘snappy’ lately.

Psychic and Prophetic Dreams: Snapdragons can foretell of being wed to someone who is socially loved and adored by many as well as financially secure.

In the Native American culture snakes are considered very powerful medicine and their energy is often called upon by the tribe’s medicine men and shaman because of their primordial wisdom and transformative/regenerative abilities.

Snow Dreams

(see Clouds, Ice, Rain, Sun, Water)

Cold or distant demeanors that cover up one’s true feelings.

Feeling momentarily halted, frozen, or paralyzed by external forces that will eventually give way.

A temporary barrenness or time of rest that leads to personal growth and refreshment.

Individuality, and asserting that sense of self without remorse or uncertainty. Note that no two snowflakes are ever alike.

Snowperson: Indifference or frigidity toward men or women, depending on the gender indicated in the sculpture. Alternatively, trying to mold others into an image that you find pleasing, but one with which they may not be comfortable.

A snow storm represents confusion or the inability to see things clearly due to external hindrances.

Water is symbolic of the subconscious. Learn about the Element of Water so you can better understand what your dream is trying to tell you.
