The horizon was once considered to be the edge of the world and in dreams can still have that connotation, though now it is the boundary of the visible physical world. Beyond that is the abyss or void.

Greek god Zeus and the Roman god Jupiter are one and the same. Zeus is the god of gods. He is the creator of day, thunder and lightning, the seasons and is the “sky god.” Zeus holds supreme power and his decisions are not questioned as he is the father of gods and men. He represents external order and authority. His wisdom, power and sense of fairness supports the structure of the ancient Greek and Roman universe. Jupiter, or Zeus, is a “good father” that provides the opportunity for growth, development, prosperity and health. Jupiter, as a planet, has a central position among the other planets in the solar system. Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars are on one side and Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto on the other. Astrologically, Jupiter represents balance, organization, abundance and optimism.
If you are down on your luck or a bit disorganized, this dream may be calling for awareness of supportive internal and external forces. Our dreams often compensate for what is lacking in daily life. In this way, dreams attempt to balance the psyche. Thus, dreaming of Jupiter is reassuring and invites the dreamer to access the power in his own psyche and to embrace a positive attitude. Jupiter is a reminder that there is an order to the universe that provides us with an opportunity to have a prosperous, balanced and joyful life.

To dream of lizards, foretells attacks upon you by enemies.
If you kill a lizard, you will regain your lost reputation or fortune; but if it should escape, you will meet vexations and crosses in love and business.
For a woman to dream that a lizard crawls up her skirt, or scratches her, she will have much misfortune and sorrow. Her husband will be a victim to invalidism and she will be left a widow, and little sustenance will be eked out by her own labors.
(Bewitch; Free; Gecko; Independent; Wall gecko; Witch) Seeing a lizard in a dream means greed, gluttony, or difference in opinion and taste.
A lizard in a dream also represents a person who swindles people’s money. It also means a sickness, or it could represent a wicked, damned and abhorred person, or a lonesome person. Perhaps seeing a lizard in a dream may mean suspicious or tainted money, someone of an unknown lineage, a reincarnated or transformed person in the form of a lizard. Noting here that transformation of the human being into another creature in reality represents a divine punishment, though it may not last for more than three days. God knows best. (Also see Wall gecko; Monitor; Transformation)
Because of its primitive origins, many psychologists view this as an emblem of the Collective Unconscious or wild nature within.
In Egypt and Greece, an omen of luck.
African: Transformation and the ability to adapt to your surroundings. Here the lizard is regarded as a shape-shifter.
Lizards are very sensitive to land vibrations, and have very good hearing and keen eyesight, making them symbolic of awareness, especially psychically.
Impartiality and the ability to break away from various situations. When a predator pounces on a lizard’s tail, it is surprised to discover that the tail breaks off, leaving the lizard free and alive to grow a new one!
The appearance of a lizard delivers the ability to see many dimensions at once.
The view of life as a dream is one that the lizard cames to the individual who needs to expand his or her thinking regarding the greater meaning of life. As the lizard is sometimes difficult to see, it reflects unseen dimensions of the world.
A chameleon, for instance, can represent maintaining a level of invisibility or may commcnt on being in camouflage. Its appearance can also be a response to not noticing the obvious. As a prehistonc reptile, a lizard may come to mention the need to explore your prerecorded history in order to greater understand your present attitudes and beliefs.
Dreams of a lizard or any reptile represent that you are in touch with your primitive survival instincts, and your ability to change and shed your skin in order to stay alive. In some cultures, especially in West Africa, the mythology speaks of reptiles taking, fetching or stealing fire from the sun, which means that you might feel that your energy is being drained or disempowerd by a person or situation in your life. See Snake and Chakras-1st and 2nd.
If you see a lizard among a group of people, then there is a false friend nearby who would betray you in a moment if it suited his or her ends.
In Native American mythology, the lizard is the dreamer. Dreaming of a lizard, therefore, is a sign that this dream is important and reveals a lot about where you’re coming from, where you’re going, and how best to get there. In order to get this information, look to the other symbols in the dream.
The maze could represent your current mental outlook.
A maze is a frightening and confusing place.
If in your dream you are trapped in a maze and are having difficulty getting to the end, then you need to stop and consider your current emotional and psychological status. I don’t mean to suggest anything is terribly wrong. Simply speaking, are you often confused and unsure of which way to go? If you are facing many hard decisions this dream is a good indicator that you need to step back and look at the entire picture. Edgar Cayce said that being in a maze in a dream may be symbolic of an “emotionally disorganized” person. At times we are all emotionally disorganized and confused, but admitting this dream’s message is step in the right direction.
Confusion of ideas and feelings; conflicting urges and opinions; the difficulty in finding our way through the mass of apparently irrational emotions and images arising from within. Sometimes we need to admit we are lost and need help. Occasionally the circuitous and often confusing route we take to meeting self; the unconscious.
From a mythological point of view, the image of the maze is closely tied to the Greek hero Theseus and to Ariadne, who loves him. As legend has it, in order to slay the virgin-devouring monster in the center of the maze of Crete, Ariadne gives to Theseus a magical red thread that will help him find his way out of the maze after he has slain the monster.
The maze symbolizes the womb of the Earth Mother and the cosmic order, which each of us has to create within ourself. And that is your task! The path is like a maze; after many twists and turns you finally reach your goal, where you can fulfill your obligations and responsibilities, find your shadow, and come to terms with it. Every time you dream about a maze you are challenged to come to terms with the monster within yourself.
On the other hand, the image of the maze points to a mother complex: if you cannot let go of the feminine, you are lost in it, which means the masculine in you loses its identity. And if this masculine identity is devoured by the feminine, the feminine cannot find its own identity because it doesn’t have access to it, and you cannot find your way out of the maze.
The symbol of the maze probably goes back to observations made about how the sun or the moon is traveling across the sky. In the center of the maze resides death, where the sun and the moon are at their lowest point. After we have met death, we leave the maze in the same way as Theseus. Our modern world, the metropolitan big city, the asphalt jungle, where people are easily getting lost and feeling trapped, is often compared with the maze. What is addressed here is the idea that our lives have become so complex that it is difficult for us to find our way. See Food (stored), Thread, Dragon.
1- A maze often represents a confusion of ideas and feelings. There are conflicting urges and opinions and we often discover that in attempting to find our way through the maze we have learnt something about our own courage, our own ability to meet problems. Often there is the apparently irrational fear and doubt that arises from not being able to find our wav in and out of the maze.
This can allow us to release feelings of self-doubt and fear.
2- Psychologically; the maze may- represent the variety of opinions and authoritative beliefs that we come up against in our ordinary, everyday world. We may be trying to find our own way through this mass of detail and we picture it in a dream as actually trying to find our way through a maze.
3- The path to the Divine.
The way to the feminine is a strange route, and all the roads that lead there are winding, but the end result has worthy consequences.
To dream that you are in a maze implies that you should face a challenge directly. It isn’t as difficult as you think. In addition, this dream may represent the various changes in direction that you experience in your life.
Dreams of a maze symbolize a course of initiation, and that you are testing your ability to put your problem solving abilities to the test. This dream may also be telling you that it is time to exit from a career, relationship, or habit pattern that is getting you nowhere. Consider the feeling tone.

A portent of uncertain times ahead, when you literally won’t know if you’re coming or going.
If the dreamer found his or her way out and wasn’t particularly concerned about it, then whatever problems you face will be set right and you can get on with your life. But if the dreamer was frightened, panicked, and kept running into dead ends, then the dream is telling him or her that it’s vital to calm down, try to relax, and face whatever appears to be stopping him from doing what he wants.
If a person sees himself as mounting a zebra or an antelope or a wild camel while he has no desire to hunt any of these, it means he will allow an evil person to enter his home, allowing him to do what he desires.
The same interpretation is given if, instead of mounting, he becomes the owner of any of the above animals or he subjugates them.
(Caller to prayers; Muslim caller on the hour of prayers) In a dream, a muezzin represents’ someone who calls for what is good and blessed, a broker, an officiant who performs the wedding ceremony, the messenger of the king, or his door attendant.

(arb. Mish’ar AI-Hanim; Rituals of the Pilgrimage) Seeing oneself at Muzdalifa in a dream means receiving a commendation because of one’s endeavor to fulfill his prescribed duties, or it could mean payment of debts, or fulfillment of a promise.
To see the sacred station at Muzdalifa (arb. Mish’ar Al298 Haram) in a dream means observing God’s commandments and fulfilling the divine injunctions.
If one finds himself standing before the sacred station of Muzdalifa, seeking refuge in its sanctuary in a dream, it means that he will receive guidance and dispel his fears. (Also see ‘Arafat; Circumambulation; Cradle of Ismiiil; Ka’aba; Mina; Pelting stones; Pilgrimage; Responding; Sa’E; Station ofAbraham; ‘Umrah)
The figure of a nazi still holds associations of extreme cruelty and bigotry. While the belief system was the wish for a pure race, such intense fanaticism is misplaced; it will have this significance in dreams.
To see or be chased by a Nazi in your dream, represents a form of evil and merciless force that cannot be reasoned with. You may feel that others are putting you down unfairly, or that you are being somehow mistreated and misunderstood.
Confirming to yourself or the Universe something’s validity and sincerity.

Depth Psychology: A dream about paralysis indicates that you are wTesding with problems or conflicts of your own making. Sometimes you are paralyzed by a hidden, unconscious fear over which you have no control. Are you sometimes paralyzed in your reactions? VVTiat is it that paralyzes you? Try to overcome this paralysis as soon as possible.
The inability to make a decision leaves you in a corner or leads to a dead end.
A part of yourself has remained unexpressed or underdeveloped, and therefore it is unable to integrate properly, causing arrested progress. Look to see what region of your body is paralyzed for more insight.
For example, having your hand paralyzed might reflect an inability to give charitably or accept aid when it’s offered.
Fear and other intense emotions that leave you unable or unwilling to act.
A sense of inability to act in a given situation, usually with regard to love.
If the paralysis was total, then the dream may fear taking a certain action. It could be whether or not to declare his love, propose marriage, or break up.
If the paralysis was only partial, sexual inhibitions could be the problem.
The dreamer may feel inhibited or blocked from moving ahead with plans for major changes in her life due to circumstances beyond her control. Astrological parallel: Saturn Tarot parallels: The Pope, or Hierophant
If you dream that you are paralyzed and cannot move, you may feel unable to deal with a situation in real life. You could be frustrated that you can’t change anything, or you are having troubles expressing your feelings.
To dream that someone else is paralyzed, means you feel that someone you know is letting you down by not helping you in some situation, or by not taking charge of their own affairs.
To see a pretzel in your dream, symbolizes faith, spirituality and life’s sweet rewards. You are embracing life and extending yourself to help others. Alternatively, it may indicate that you are preoccupied with some complex issue and are not sure how to handle it.

Psychological / emotional perspective: To prize an object (as in a prize possession) is to give it its proper value.

Material aspects: In dreams, to win a prize is to have succeeded in overcoming our own obstacles. We are also being acknowledged by other people for having made the effort to succeed and achieving what we set out to do.
To be giving away prizes suggests that we are giving public acknowledgement to efforts others have made.
Dreams of this literary accomplishment represent that you are realizing the power of your words, whether written, spoken or contained within your own mind. Your dream is giving you the message to bring your verbal expression to the level of art. See Award and Play.

1- Quartz seen in dreams tends to represent the crystallisation of ideas and feelings. It touches into our deep internal processes, often enabling us to express that which we have found impossible before.
2- The crystallisation process was seen by the Ancients as the trapping of light, and therefore power and, on a subliminal level, this is still recognised by many dreamers.
To dream of quartz, therefore, signifies a recognition of developing power.
3- The quartz is recognised as both receiving and transmitting Spiritual energy.
To dream of clear quartz indicates that you will have a significant and positive shift in your spiritual, emotional, and physical life. You may find amplification in energy and ideas. Large quantities of clear quartz suggests a change of address to a healthier environment. You may expect someone you no longer desire to joyfully disappear. Note color variations in the quartz as this will aid your personal journey.
Psychological / emotional perspective: The crystallization process was seen by the ancients as the trapping of light and, therefore, power, and, on a subliminal level, this is still recognized by many dreamers.
To dream of quartz, therefore, signifies a recognition of developing power.
Material aspects: Quartz seen in dreams tends to represent the crystallization of ideas and feelings. It touches into our deep internal processes, often enabling us to express that which we have found impossible before.
Psychological / emotional perspective: A questionnaire depicts the use of our mental faculties in a focused, decision-making way. By being rational, we are able to evaluate a problem. Taking part in a pub quiz suggests a group activity which tests awareness and knowledge.
Material aspects: To be answering a questionnaire or quiz in a dream suggests we may be making an attempt to change our circumstances without being certain of what we should actually do to bring about the change. We may also be trying to come to terms with other aspects of our personality.
If you dream of taking a quiz, the meaning relates to whether or not you had difficulty coming up with answers.
If you had fun taking the quiz and scored well, you will have easy success in whatever you are trying to achieve. But if you had trouble, got confused or scored badly, you have a fear of failure that’s preventing you from trying your hardest at something.
To dream of a razor, portends disagreements and contentions over troubles.
To cut yourself with one, denotes that you will be unlucky in some deal which you are about to make. Fighting with a razor, foretells disappointing business, and that some one will keep you harassed almost beyond endurance.
A broken or rusty one, brings unavoidable distress.
(Straight razor) In a dream, a straight razor represents a son. Ifone causes wounds to a pigeon or an animal with a razor in a dream, the razor then represents his tongue and the base language he hurls at people. Seeing a straight razor in a dream also signifies perfidy, enmity and the use of harsh language.
It will depend on the type of razor which interpretation is given.
A cut-throat razor would have the same svmbolism as a knife that is, cutting through the unnecessary.
A safety razor suggests a less risky method is needed to enable us to reveal the truth about ourselves.
An electric razor suggests that we need to pay attention to the image we put across in everyday life.
Psychologically, a razor is more of a tool than an aggressive implement. Thus, to be using a razor on someone else, is to be carrying out a caring act unless our actions are deliberately violent. We may in this ease be aware that part of our personality- needs changing or sharpening up.
3- Dreaming of a razor may allow us to consider our spiritual image and decide how to make changes.
Dreams of a razor signify a sharp wit. Your dream may be giving you the message to shave away your ego barriers so that you may be more naked, intimate, authentic and exposed. Also, your spiritual journey is a razor’s edge so stay alert and awake. See Knife.
Our basic spinal and lower brain reactions, such as fight or flight, reproduction, attraction or repulsion, sex drive, need for food and reaction to pain. This includes the fundamental evolutionary ability to change and the urge to survive—very powerful and ancient processes. Our relationship with the reptile in our dreams depicts our relat- edness to such forces in us, and how we deal with the impulses from the ancient pan of our brain.
Modern humans face the difficulty of developing an independent identity and yet keeping a working relationship with the primitive, thus maturing/bringing the primitive into an efficiently functioning connection with the present social world.
The survival urge at base might be kill or run, but it can be transformed into the ambition which helps, say, an opera singer meet difficulties in her career. Also the very primitive has in itself the promise of the future, of new aspects of human consciousness. This is because many extraordinary human functions take place unconsciously, in the realm of the reptile/spine/lower brain/right brain/autonomic nervous system. Being unconscious they are less amenable to our waking will. They function fully only in some fight or flight, survive or die, situations.
If we begin to touch these with consciousness, as we do in dreams, new functions are added to consciousness. See The dream as extended perception under ESP and dreams.
Unconscious life or growth processes which can lead to transformation (the frog/prince story); the growth from childhood vulnerability—tadpole to frog—therefore the process of life in general and its wisdom. Frogspawn: sperm, ovum and reproduction.
Example: ‘My wife and I saw a large lizard on the wall near a banana. It was there to catch the flies.
The lizard turned so it was facing away from us—head up the wall. We then were able to see it had large wing-like flaps which spread from its head in an invened V. With amazement we saw on these flaps wonderful pictures, in full colour, of birds. In fleeting thoughts I wondered if the bird “paintings” were to attract birds, or were some form of camouflage. But I felt cenain the lizard had “painted” these wonderful pictures with its unconscious an’ (David T). Generally, a lizard is very much the same as a snake, except it lacks the poisonous aspect; awareness of unconscious or instinctive drives, functions and processes. In the above dream, the banana is both David’s pleasure and sexuality, while the lizard is the creativity emerging from his unconscious through the attention he is giving it—he is looking at the lizard. Chameleon: either one’s desire to fade into the background, or adaptability.
Example: A small snake about a foot long had dropped down my shirt neck. I could feel it on the left side of my neck Fearing it was poisonous and might bite me, I moved very slowly. At one point I put my head on the ground, hoping the snake would wish to crawl away. It did not. Then I was near an elephant I loved, and hoped it would remove the snake. It did not. Even as I slept I felt the snake was an expression of the attitude of not shanng myself with anybody except family’ (David T).
For months prior to the above dream David had experienced a great deal of neck pain. After discussing the dream with his wife, and realising much of his thinking and feeling was intumed, the pain disappeared. So the snake was both poisoner’ and ‘healer’. This may be why snakes are used as a symbol of the medical profession.
The Hebrew word for the serpent in the Garden of Eden is Nahash, which can be translated as blind impulsive urges, such as our instinctive drives.
So, generally, snakes depict many different things, but usually the life process.
If we think of a person’s life from conception to death, we see a flowing moving event, similar in many ways to the speeded up films of a seed growing into a plant, flowering and dying.
The snake depicts the force or energy behind that movement and purposiveness—the force of life which leads us both to growth and death. That energy —like electricity in a house, which can be heat, power, sound and vision—lies behind all our functions. So in some dreams the snake expresses our sexuality, in others the rising of that energy up our body to express itself as digestion—the intestinal snake; as the healing or poisonous energy of our emotions and thoughts.
Example: ‘I was in a huge cathedral, the mother church. I wanted to go to the toilet/gents. As I held my penis to urinate it became a snake and reached down to the urinal to drink. It was thirsty. I struggled with it, pulling it away from the unclean liquid. Still holding it I walked to a basin and gave it pure water to drink’ (Bill A). Here the connection between snake and sexuality is obvious. But the snake is not just Bill’s penis. It is the direction his sexual urges take him he is struggling with. Out of his sense of love and connection with life— the cathedral—he wants to lift his drive towards something which will not leave him with a sense of uncleanness. Snake in connection with any hole: sexual relatedness.
A snake biting us: unconscious worries about our health, frustrated sexual impulse, our emotions turned against ourselves as internalised aggression, can poison us and cause very real illness, so may be shown as the biting snake. Snake biting others: biting remarks, a poisonous tongue.
A crowned or light-encircled snake: when our ‘blind impulses’ or instinctive or unconscious urges and functions are in some measure integrated with our conscious will and insight, this is seen as the crowned snake or even winged snake. It shows real self awareness and maturity. In coils of snake: feeling bound in the ‘blind impulses’ or habitual drives and feeling responses. Instincts and habits can be redirected, as illustrated by Hercules’ labours. Snake with tail in mouth: sense of the circle of life—binh, growth, reproduction, aging, death, rebirth; the eternal. Snake coiling up tree, pole, cross: the blind instinctive forces of life emerging into conscious experience—in other words the essence of human expenence with its involvement in pain, pleasure, time and eternity; the process of personal growth or evolution; healing because personal growth often moves us beyond old attitudes or situations which led to inner tension or even sickness. Snake in grass: sense or intuition of talk behind your back; danger, sneakiness. Colours: green, our internal life process directed, perhaps through satisfied feelings, love and creativity, into a healing process or one which leads to our personal growth and positive change; white, eternal aspect of our life process, or becoming conscious of it; blue, religious feelings or coldness in relations. See colours; anxiety dreams; death and rebirth, the self under archetypes; dreams and Ancient Greece; cellar under house, buildings; hypnosis and dreams; jungle; paralysis.
Eating out of a box of Ritz crackers may represent your desire for wealth and “the good life.” Crackers may also constructively point out that you are obsessed, as in going “crackers” over thoughts of wealth.
This integration dream is showing you aspects of yourself with which you’ve denied association. This dream is giving you an opportunity to integrate your polarities, shadow/light, masculine/feminine, and seeming conflicting needs.
The message of this dream is to release judgements, shame and blame about any aspect of yourself, as you embrace your self in the light of the divine. See Integration Dreams.
To dream that you are schizophrenic, symbolizes your conflict between two ideas, opinions or ways of approaching life. You could also feel stuck between two people or groups in your life who want different things from you. You are feeling torn apart by this conflict - you must make a decision about the person who you want to become, and then act accordingly to make it happen.
Vision: If you are shaving: don’t let others talk you into something; people are playing games with you.
If someone else is shaving: deception is underfoot—someone is about to cheat you. Watching someone else shaving: don’t get involved in a questionable project.
Depth Psychology: A razor stands for a keen, logical, analytical mind (“razor sharp”). Sharp-edged logic, however, can quickly deflate feelings, emotions, and intuitive talents. You are walking on the razor’s edge. See Beard, Hair.

Depth Psychology: Singing means that you are at peace with yourself and the world around you.
A song in a dream: you are remembering past experiences and emotions. Was the song sad or happy? See Music, Song, Yodeling.
1- To be conscious of size in a dream highlights how we feel in relation to a person, project or object. Big might suggest important or threatening, whereas small might indicate vulnerability or something ‘less than’ ourselves. Thus a big house would be an awareness of the expansion of oneself, whereas a small house would indicate an intensity of feeling.
2- A child learns very early on to make comparisons, and this is one of the things that we never lose. Something is bigger or smaller rather than simply big or small. In dreams size is relative. We might recognise somewhere we know, but find it is larger or smaller than we thought it to be. It is the size within the dream that is relevant.
3- Spiritually size is irrelevant. It is more the appreciation of feeling that becomes important.
A ‘big’ feeling is something that consumes us, whereas a ‘little’ perception may be only part of what really exists.
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 possiblv live up to in reality. Over- or underem-phasized 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.
Psychological / emotional perspective: A child learns very early on to make comparisons, and this is one of the things that we never lose, particularly in dreams. Something is often bigger (taller) or smaller rather than simply big or small. In dreams size is relative. We might recognize somewhere we know, but find it is larger or smaller than we thought it to be. It is the size within the dream that is relevant.
Material aspects: To be conscious of size in a dream highlights how we feel in relation to a person, project or object. Big or tall might suggest important or threatening, whereas small might indicate vulnerability or something ‘less than’ ourselves. Thus a big house would be an awareness of the expansion of oneself, whereas a small house would indicate an intensity of feeling.
The contrast between fat and thin, or thick and thin, is a subjective evaluation that will often depend on cultural differences.
The issue of size in dreams is dependent on our own personal evaluation.
To be actively reducing an article may mean that we are trying to make a project or task manageable.
Grounding light and activanng the root and sexual chakra, this crystal may be uncovered to help you reconnect with the earth. It may stimulate your sexuality and assist in the healing of sexual issues. (See Crystal.)
(Anger; Ascertain; Cold; Disdain; Disregard; Exhale; Fury) Sneezing in a dream means reassessing something about which one had doubt. Thus, sneezing in a dream could mean acknowledging the truth, and that is why people’s common reply is “God bless you.” Sneezing in a dream also could mean the death of a sick person, or experiencing agony, distress, adversities, or facing a disturbing problem.
If one who is experiencing such trials sees himself sneezing in a dream, it means that the time has come to dispel them.
If a poor person sneezes in a dream, it means that he may wake up to find that help is coming his way. Sneezing in a dream also could mean paying one’s debts, or recovering from a cold or a nasal congestion, or it could mean exasperation, fury, rage, anger, or frowning.
If one sneezes with force in his dream, it means that he should beware of a strong enemy and the possibility of suffering losses at his hands.
Vision: Dreaming about sneezing means that you are correct in your assumption that something is not quite right after all.
Depth Psychology: Sneezing is a sign of a sudden self-cleansing process that you have initiated. Suddenly everything becomes clear, your head is clear. You have new insights or a new idea is going to solve a problem. See Nose.
To dream that you are squeezing something, suggests that you need to make more space for other things in your life. Epecially, you need to stop dwelling on your past emotions and clear them away. Dreams of squeezing may also mean that you are feeling pressured or stressed about something.
Psychological / emotional perspective: To dream of sterilizing something suggests a need for cleansing at a deep level. We wish to get rid of hurts or traumas and are prepared to put in the effort to do so. ‘Sterilizing’ a situation may be taking the emotion out of it.
Gives gender - specific: For a woman to dream of being sterilized, either by an operation or otherwise, may be connecting with her feeling of powerlessness. In a man’s dream sterilization may suggest sexual dissatisfactions or doubts about his self-image. You might also like to consult the entries for abduct, alien / alienated and operation.
Dreams of sterilizing signify a desire to come clean about information you have been withholding. Perhaps your subconscious mind is giving you the message to clean up your act and clear the wreckage of your past by making amends for your transgressions sand forgiving yourself and those who have hurt you. Your dream is helping you to have a clean start. See Clean.
Dreams of “super sizing it” represents overindulgence, decadence and that you may be numbing out your feelings while filling up on distractions that don’t feed your soul. Consider what it is that you are “super sizing.” See Fast Food and Drive-Thru.
Playing a synthesizer may suggest that you need to synthesize or integrate some new information into understanding. This electronic keyboard may also comment that harmony is the key to resolving a situation of conflict.
(Oppression; Suppression; Tyranny) Terrorizing others or oppressing them in a dream denotes a mental sickness, depression, psychological weakness, or actions that will bring their author closer to hell-fire. Terrorizing others in a dream represents one’s own losses and humiliation. Terrorizing people in a dream also means poverty, loss of business, a severe illness, or it could represent profits that will turn into losses. (Also see Oppression)
(Chrysolite; Gem) In a dream, topaz represents a good man who is courageous, well behaved, a true friend, a pious person, or a religious person.
If topaz is understood to denote money in the dream, then it represents lawful earnings. Topaz in a dream also represents the substance ofspeech, the essence of knowledge, and the good quality of a true human being.
Dreams of tweezers signify that you are plucking from your life experience the thoughts, feelings, and people that do not support you. You are realizing your ability to choose what empowers you and eliminating that, which does not.
Psychological / emotional perspective: Vandalism suggests a degree of mindless damage and a vandal is the perpetrator of such mindlessness. From an emotional perspective such a dream may manifest when there has not been a natural respect for our feelings.
Material aspects: When in waking life there are so many examples of wanton destruction, it is not surprising that such images become part of our dream content. When perhaps our professional integrity is called into question we may translate that as vandalism. That part of our being that has no respect for the norms and customs of society may be pictured in dreams as a vandal. You might like to consult the entries for damage and violence.
To see the waltz danced, foretells that you will have pleasant relations with a cheerful and adventuresome person.
For a young woman to waltz with her lover, denotes that she will be the object of much admiration, but none will seek her for a wife.
If she sees her lover waltzing with a rival, she will overcome obstacles to her desires with strategy.
If she waltzes with a woman, she will be loved for her virtues and winning ways.
If she sees persons whirling in the waltz as if intoxicated, she will be engulfed so deeply in desire and pleasure that it will be a miracle if she resists the impassioned advances of her lover and male acquaintances.
Dreams of a wizard represent enchantment, multi-dimensional power, lucidity, and your ability to cut through the limitation of the five senses and manifest magically. See Magician, Shaman and Prophetic Dreams.
The figure of a wizard in dreams is he who has learned to use his powers of manifestation in a dispassionate manner. He is merlin, the sorcerer and the magician. As a stage on the journey to wise old man, he is a recognizable archetype. Consult the entries for alchemy, magic / magician, wand and witch as well as the information on sorcerer in archetypes in the introduction.
Psychological / emotional perspective: Conventionally pictured in long flowing robes with a long beard, he tends to be seen as somewhat otherworldly. In dreams he appears when we are struggling with the idea of being able to use natural power in a magical way. He usually epitomizes the alchemical idea of transmutation – turning the crass into the beautiful.
Material aspects: In a workaday environment a wizard is a set of computer instructions which enables you to complete a task. Both practically and magically this image is one that can enable us to use the expertise we inherently possess.
(Zachar; to remember + ya; God; The prophet Zachariah, upon whom be peace.) If one sees the prophet Zachariah in a dream, it means that God Almighty will restore fertility to him and to his wife at an advanced age. Seeing God’s prophet Zachariah (uwbp) in a dream also means begetting a righteous son who will grow to be a sire. (Also see Zikr)
(Well of Zamzam; Ka’aba; Mecca) If one sees the well of Zamzam quenching the thirst of people and ifit is situated in a particular neighborhood, or in a town other than Mecca, it signifies that a gnostic will come to reside in that place and whose knowledge and wisdom will benefit its people. Drinking water from the blessed well of Zamzam in a dream also means recovering from an illness.
If one drinks Zamzam water after having placed an intention in his dream, for example to acquire knowledge, grow in wisdom, become wealthy, to recover from an illness, to conceive a child, to receive forgiveness for one’s sins or any lawful desire in a dream, it means that God willing, one’s wish will come true. (Also see Gutter; Well)
It is more likely that we would dream of a terrorist rather than a zealot, yet they both have the same fanatical belief in and love for one principle. There comes a time in spiritual development where we can, if we are not careful, develop extremist behaviour.
The presence of a zealot in dreams can help us focus.
Psychological / emotional perspective: Zeal is love in action and in the psychological sense suggests service to others and denial of the self. In dreams it suggests that some of our behaviour may be ‘over the top’.
Material aspects: Historically, the zealots were a group who objected to roman rulership and sought to violently eradicate it. This kind of ‘love in action’ has relevance in today’s world when we come up against fanaticism in all its forms. Dreaming of a zealot suggests that we may need to act more circumspectly to achieve our aims.
Dreams of a zealot represent your passionate opinions and an intense need to express. This dream may be warning you that perhaps your fanaticism may be off-putting and to respect the validity of the opinions of others. See Yell.
As the dancing horse of Africa, the zebra brings the alchemy of movement and the integration of the dark and light into a prancing power. Its appearance may be a call to use dance as an an for enjoyment or as a tool to foster transforming energy. Its pattern of stripes integrates the feminine or dark aspect of the psychic with the masculine (light) aspect into a sacred union through movement.
The zebra’s appearance in a dream, therefore. can signify the healing and transforming power of dancing through life.
Zest deodorant soap Being handed a bar of Zest may suggest that you need to refresh your attitude and cleanse yourself of any negative energy you may have taken on. It may also be a comment on the need to put some “zest” into your life.
To dream of a zebra represents an attraction to opposites, perfect balance, harmony, and unity. Conversely, it implies you are spending too much of your time on various trivial matters. You should consider laying out a framework that will allow you to establish stability in your life.
Interpreting numbers that we see in dreams may be difficult. Their meaning my be very personal, such as a reflection of financial concern or any other area of daily life represented by numbers. One way to interpret numbers is to try to see how they are specifically related to you. (E.g.
If you have the number 25 in your dream. Your house number is 12 while your parent’s number is 13. Together they make 25, and this dream could have been addressing issues in regard to you and your parents.) Generally, if you see a zero as part of a number, interpret it as you would any other number in your dreams. See Numbers. Otherwise, a zero can have the same meaning as a circle.
The circle symbolizes infinity, completeness, and wholeness, the circle of life and the eternal unknown. You the dreamer may have come to a greater degree of spiritual awareness and the dream could be spiritual in nature. However, as always, examine all of the details in the dream, as well as its tone and mood, and rule out the possibility of “going in circles” as the primary message in the dream.
To dream of the number zero means total freedom, timelessness, and eternity.
The number zero also represents God. It may also be thought of as a circle, which itself represents completeness and infinity. Additionally, to dream of seeing a zero may be a warning that you’re currently ‘going around in circles.’ Lastly, it may mean you have nothing.
Dreams of a zero represent nothingness, emptiness, or that you are starting over.
If there are a lot of zeros, then this forecasts wealth, abundance and success. Zero also represents the full circle of life, the feminine symbol of space, the womb, secrets, mystery, hidden knowledge, a void, receptivity, wisdom, and the value of your intangible, intuition, feelings and mystery. Consider the feeing tone of this dream to discern its message for you.
To dream of Zeus indicates that lately, an authority figure in your life may have been making themselves unwelcome. This is a reminder that you are powerful and have just as much right to an opinion as anybody else.
The ancient ziggurats of mesopotamia were temples built by kings to celebrate their sacred marriage with the divine, which at that time was matriarchal. Spiritually, when this image appears, therefore, it celebrates our awareness of our own potential for such union.
Psychological / emotional perspective: The seven steps or stages up to the entrance into the secret chamber at the top of the ziggurat, leading where union took place, correspond to the different stages of awareness in eastern religions known as chakras. So to find ourselves in dreams at, say, the fourth step or stage would signify the need to come to terms with our ability to love and be loved.
Material aspects: When we see a zigzag in dreams there is the potential to be struck by some mishap, such as in a bolt of lightning. Usually an event will occur which brings about a discharge of energy; circumstances will then be brought back into balance.
(Hymn; Remembrance of God; Songs of God’s love; Supplications) Ifone sees himself in a dream participating in a circle of people remembering God Almighty, or calling upon His most beautiful name, or invoking His divine attributes, or reading the Qur’an, or reciting devotional songs, it means that such location will be built as a holy place to celebrate God’s praises.
The goodness of that place depends on the quality of reading, or the degree of devotion seen in the dream. When it is an ascetic song in the dream, it means that one’s deputyship is established correctly, but if one sees himself singing a sensual love song, then it means temptations.
If one sees himself repeatedly calling God’s name in a dream, it means that he will win victory over his enemy. Calling people to God and reminding them of His attributes in a dream represents the work of a preacher who admonishes people, helps them to the shore of safety, and distances them from their sins and their consequences.
If a merchant sees himselfcallingupon God’s beautiful names in a dream, it means that his business will be saved from bankruptcy.
If a disbeliever, a profane or a secular person sees himself in a state of remembering God Almighty and calling upon His most holy attributes in a dream, it means that he may fall sick, or face great adversities, while in his heart, he will remain pleading with God Almighty for mercy and relief, though he may remain silent in public regarding his inner faith, and in fear of being ridiculed by his own circles.
If during his dream one speaks words of truth and wisdom, it means that he will recover from his adversity and be cured from his illness. Furthermore, he will move into a more comfortable life and begin a life of sharing and doing good deeds in this world, or he may receive guidance and light, and faith will permeate his heart. Ifone says his prayers with a twang in a dream, it means that he will linger in difficulties, and that people will mock him too. (Also see Supplications)
Dreams of zinc denote that you are getting stronger, more grounded, and connected with your true nature. Alternatively, consider that this dream could be giving you the message that zinc may be missing in your diet.
A zip fastener symbolizes spiritual connections and the interlocking of the physical and spiritual realms. In technology, a zip drive is an efficient means of storing information and can therefore represent the akashic records – all of life’s vicissitudes.
To dream of zip codes suggests that you are not connecting with messages that are trying to get through to you. This is due to stress. This also suggests that you may need to start a meditation routine. Dreaming of a specific zip code implies an urgent request from your unconscious to calm your mind and mental state.
A way to locate someone or something for which you have been searching. Make special note of these numbers, and see if you can’t find a waking representation of them.
Effectiveness of communications. Having the wrong zip code on a letter will keep its message from being delivered promptly. Are you directing your words in the right way, to the right people?
A numerological code equating to basic personality traits that either need to be developed or honed to improve your relationships. Add all the numbers together (for example, 14127 = 15 = 1+5 = 6), and look that number up herein for more ideas.
Dreams of a zip-line represent that you are moving swiftly and joyously from one place in your life to another. Consider the feeling tone of this dream and whether or not you feel that you have a handle on these rapid moves and changes in your life.
Dreams of a zipper represent that you are opening and closing yourself to intimacy. Perhaps you are feeling tentative about revealing your secrets and/or exposing your true feelings. Consider if the zipper is opened or closed.
(Gem; Mineral; Ring; Stone) In a dream, zircon represents unity and affection between husband and wife, or it could mean a contract between two partners, or reconciliation between two enemies, or it could represent the correctness of one’s faith. (Also see Stone’)
Dreams of zircon signify that you are settling for second best, that you desire true love or a magnificent life, and this dream is helping you to vent out feelings of unworthiness to have the quality of life that you desire.
If you dream of studying the Zodiac it indicates you will distinguish yourself in business and popularity. Should the Zodiac read in a odd manner then it denotes some unpleasant event is hovering around you, and you need to be ready to dispel it. Just dreaming of the Zodiac augurs an uncommon rise in material wealth and position in a short time.
If you map out the Zodiac then you will have good fortune in your future
Where an animal or figure of one’s birth sign—such as a lion in a Leo’s, bull in Taurean’s, twins in Geminian’s dream—appears, this frequently represents the dreamer’s basic personality traits. Often it depicts the natural urges the personality meets in itself, but which may not be expressed. How one deals with the animal or figure shows one’s relationship with what is felt to be one’s basic self and potential. See planet.
1- Everyone has a fascination for horoscopes, without necessarily understanding the significance of the zodiac wheel. It is often only when we begin the journey of self- discovery that images and symbols from the zodiac will appear in dreams. Frequently, the animal or creature associated with our own star sign will appear, almost as a reminder of basic principles.
The way we deal with that image will give us insight into how we really feel about ourselves.
2- The zodiac wheel is symbolic of our relationship with the universe. Sometimes the signs of the zodiac arc used in dreams to demonstrate time or time passing, and also suggest courses of action we might take.
For instance, if we dreamt of a girl riding a goat we might have to seek perfection (Virgo) through tenacity (Capricorn). Each sign also rules a particular part of the body; and often a dream alerts us to a possible imbalance.
3- The spheres of influence as described below are;
The symbol is the Ram and it governs the head.
The colour associated with the sign is red; its specific gemstones are amethyst and diamond.
The symbol is the Bull and it governs the throat.
The colours associated with the sign are blue and pink; its specific gem- stones are moss agate and emerald. Gemini The symbol is the Twins (often shown as masculine and feminine) and it governs the shoulders, arms and hands.
The colour associated with the sign is yellow; its specific gemstones are agate and beryl.
The symbol is the Crab and it governs the stomach and higher organs of digestion.
The colours associated with the sign are either violet or emerald green: its specific gemstones are moonstones and pearls. Leo The symbol is the Lion and it governs the heart, lungs and liver.
The colours associated with the sign are gold and orange; its specific gemstones are topaz and tourmaline.

The zodiac wheel is symbolic of our relationship with the universe. Sometimes the signs of the zodiac are used in dreams to demonstrate time or time passing, and also suggest courses of action we might take. Each sign also rules (has responsibility for) a particular part of the physical body, and any imbalance is reflected into dreams through the symbolism of the zodiac.

It is often only when we begin the journey of self-discovery that images and symbols from the zodiac will appear in dreams.

The way we deal with that image will give us insight into how we really feel about ourselves.
