Affair

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

If you are having an affair in a dream, you are being asked to get intimately in touch with your male side if you are having an affair with a man, or your female side if the affair is with a woman. Having an affair with a person of the same gender means the same thing. We all have male and female aspects to ourselves which have their own unique traits. For example, compassion, listening, leadership and your philosophy of life work through your female energy. Confidence, belief in yourself, feeling worthy of the space you occupy, career, ambition, sex drive and spiritual healing work through your male energy. The dream may be triggered due to an imbalance which is affecting your ability to develop or move forward in an aspect of your life.

To dream of your partner having an affair is not a prediction or confirmation. It merely means that your dream is trying to get you to work through your feelings for your partner. It can be triggered if you had or considered an affair in this or a previous relationship?

Animal

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

One interpretation for Animals is that they represent your human nature (animal nature). We are animals and part of the animal kingdom. As such we have animal instincts that are part of our nature. Do you suppress part of your animal nature? To dream of an elephant, for instance, means that you hide your sensitivity by displaying a thick skin (see elephant). You are a sensitive animal and there is no point denying it – it is part of your nature so accept it. To dream of a sheep indicates you are timid or don’t do enough for yourself (see sheep). To dream of an alligator or crocodile means that you are either too aggressive and need to stop snapping at others or that you are losing a grip on things (once a crocodile has a grip on you they will not let go) and need to sharpen your teeth so you can take a good bite at life or be assertive when you need to be.

The significant thing is that as an animal your instincts can guide you through a given situation and quite often this is the right thing to do. Our animal side is also instrumental when it comes to having fun. Fun is a spontaneous thing and that’s how instincts work. To dream of a lost dog returning asks you to let your mental guard down and trust your instincts.

To dream of an animal dying can be about letting your animal nature die. It can also be about your body’s immune system fighting off disease. To dream of dead mutated animals, crows, badgers, snakes, worms, or other animals that are carrion is good. Here the animals represent a serious health threat such as cancer and them dying or you killing them in a dream shows your immune system is up to the task of fighting off the threat. To dream of these animals laying eggs or with young, warns of a disease spreading within your body. The rest of the dream will say what is allowing the spread. The good news is that dreams warn of disease before it manifests so there is plenty of time to take remedial action. It also needs to be pointed out that occasionally dreaming of health threats is fine. It becomes serious when you consistently dream these symbols.

Rabbits and animals with young symbolize your reproductive system.

Slow moving animals indicate that you have a slow moving colon and need to do something to speed it up.

Talking animals indicate that you need to express yourself.

Look up other animals by name to discover their meaning.
