The Dream Oracle Card this month brings us symbolic messages pertaining to the beginning of our Rebirths taking place over the next few months.
The chaotic darkness that lingered a little too long ending the past year has now completed. Yesterday we moved past the dream representation of death - shedding those aspects of our dream selves that we no longer find use for - and we thank our symbolic journey through death and find ourselves making room for rebirth. What is this rebirth, this change of renewal many of us are beginning to dream? Making sure our dirty laundry is washed, watching snakes birth wise women who bring the recipes of healing through ancient magic, and dreams of the seeded egg when cracked open a new baby begins to giggle. Only to soon find ourselves breaking out of our old cocoons - that no longer have the ability to house the new you; while feeling the metamorphosis of our own beautiful butterfly appear, showcasing yesterday’s magnificent colors that once radiated at your old frequency but will now illuminate higher beyond the vibrational spectrum of light through every crack of your very being.
The symbolic meaning behind Rebirth contains within its womb several different dream symbols. However, rebirth itself embodies birthing new aspects of our whole self and renewing buried pieces we thought we had forgotten. These facets when unraveled reveal the essence of our true being.
This new phase, we as a conscious whole have transitioned into, encompasses many universal dream symbols that have been explored before. The beauty of dream symbols are that there is not one meaning for each, yes the images fit the individual dreamer but they also fit the unconscious whole during times of collective changes and communal engagements of awakening.
A common sign of transformation and renewal is the symbol of the snake appearing in our dreams. Many dreamers tend to fear this ancient species, however, snakes are not to be feared but to be swaddled. Snakes appear in our dreams to help get us back on our path, to lead us out of our darkness, and to guide us through the stage of renovation. Snakes represent the shedding of old skin, and because thy shed their skin regularly they are able to continue surviving through the dark and light of the past, present, and future. Transmuting and renewal keeps us on our path forward.
For many dreamers snakes will appear as a dream guide, shape shifting to appear in a manner that is most comfortable for the dreamer as they project both positive and unnecessary energies to gain our attention. When a snake appears in your dream, embody the power of a snake and ask, “What knowledge of revitalization do you have to offer with me?”
The next few months many dreamers may have dream encounters with a bird (or birds) within their dreams. Before many of us discover a seed to plant, we may be surprised to unearth that it is a bird that drops the seed at our feet. The symbolic translation of a bird represents a reminder of all our hidden, or lost, aspirations, hopes, and desires we once created for our Self. If you encounter a bird in your dream follow the birth, fly with the bird(s), expand your wings and soar. Your future is currently launching you forward – jump and flap your wings.
A Seed (or seeds) appearing in our dreams represents our ability to seed our present as we envision our future blooming. Once the action of planting the seed has taken place, remember to spend a moment each day tending to beneath the soil. Nurture the earth within you, shine your light upon it, and add your energy of joy to the womb it is incubating within.
Once the seed is planted, you will begin to see an egg growing within the womb of rebirth in preparation of your true essence coming to fruition. Something new is about to hatch in the near future, the cosmos are speaking and orchestrating a grand celebration for you.
During the beginning of this Dawn of the New Age, many dreamers may find surprising and random encounters with babies. These images of babies represent the resurrection of the new aspects of our rebirth we are renewing and cultivating. The birthing has taken place and incubating has completed in your womb, it is time to hold in your arms the warm wisdom of a new born soul - you. A baby brings with it messages from the other side. The dialect the baby vocalizes, the cries it bellows out, speaks a language long forgotten, but expresses words we all need to begin to express again. Dream Insight: Cuddle the baby, be present with this amazing beautiful baby newly birthed, and listen to the inner knowledge of their words.
And now the metamorphosis has taken place. Butterflies appear fluttering around in the warm glow of the sun and moon. Natural changes have begun deep within; our inner light shines brilliantly as our higher Self emerges externally. Instinctively you begin to manifest your positive thoughts as you finally embrace who you truly are. All these stunning changes happening while finding joy in the simplicity of our Self merging our past, present, and future as one.
