I had a very strange dream last night and when I woke up I knew beyond of a shadow of a doubt that this was no ordinary dream but a dream vision – the kind of dream that stays with you your whole life. I also intuited that it was connected with the Neptunian Dreams I had 3-4 weeks ago, so I decided to use the same spread I used to decipher those, in order to connect the dots.
In the dream, I see myself laid out on a stretcher and my face has been peeled off. Not only has my face been taken off but the facial bones in my skull have been polished and shine white where I lie. Two men are carrying the stretcher and I believe they are taking me to a hospital (place of healing).
I’m not dead, yet I find myself hovering on the right side of my body looking down at it from a 45 degree angle. I see my jaw opening and closing and realise that my body still lives. There is no fear connected with my observations, just curiousity.
The first word that springs to mind in connection with the dream when I wake up is initiation.
Card 1, Nettle, tells me of how the theme of my Neptunian Dreams is carrying over and how the current spiritual lesson came about. It is very true that I have felt in need of psychic protection pretty much the whole summer and the Pyramid Card from the Isis Oracle came as confirmation of that the other day. In the Neptunian dreams reading, the need for firmer boundaries (psychic and otherwise) was represented by the 9 of Wands.
Card 2, Silver, shows me the theme of the Skull dream and has me quite gobsmacked as I have already posted on my Facebook page today that I feel the initiation I’m facing next may be my Croning (as in Maiden-Mother-Crone depicted in this card). As synchronicity would have it, today’s Isis Oracle card also points to the Moon Goddess.
The final card represents what waits on the other side of this initiation and here we have Unicorn – Innocence.
I was amazed to see two cards from the Neptunian Dreams reading repeated, the Magician (was the outcome) and the Queen of Swords (once again the challenge.)
1. Issue – The Magician (Mercury): Birth of a new consciousness
2. Challenge – Queen of Swords (Water of Air): Because of the Unicorn card above, I feel that I now need to start tilting the Libran scales of this queen the other way, as I am at risk of getting overly cynical
3. Action – The Lovers (Gemini, ruled by Mercury): To make more heart-centred choices and to keep my heart open to love.
4. Outcome – The Hierophant (Taurus): More stability thanks to making heart-centred choices. Hieros gamos – The alchemical wedding.
It’s not been difficult to connect the dots this time. My psychic ability is increasing in leaps and bounds lately. Being a crone is going to rock!
What I’m taking from this may hopefully serve as a warning to those of you who are about to enter a new phase of your life. As we are void of course, as it were, between one phase and the next, we become more vulnerable to external influences. Do look after yourselves, beloveds!
