Autumnal Equinox Predictive Precursor
A dream I had a week ago: I was drawn to a tree with a crow’s nest at the bottom in a hollow. The tree was a stump, really, no foliage. The crow was making subdued sounds at me. I made sounds back at it, trying to shoo it, since it kind of freaked me out. It became irritated and finally let out a loud caw. This woke a black bear head next to it which I hadn’t noticed. The bear was very angry and growled at the crow. This spooked the crow which cawed loudly and flew out of the nest. The bear lumbered out after the crow and chased it. Then I woke.
That dream had some very vivid symbols, which I just had to look up. (As usual, I start with dreammoods.com) Here is what I gleaned:
Alternatively, the dream signifies the cycle of life or the passage of time. To see a withered or dead tree in your dream indicates that your hopes and desires have been dashed. You are experiencing some instability and setback in your life. Alternatively, the dead tree represents infertility or a lack of virility. Perhaps it signals an end to a familial line (as in a family tree). If you dream of crows perched on the dead tree, then it symbolizes the end of some cycle or behavior. It is representative of death. Dreaming of a tree that is bleeding refers to someone who is devoid of any emotion. Perhaps this person has experience a lot of hurt in their life. Alternatively, a bleeding tree symbolizes the cycle of life and death. If you dream of a forest of bleeding trees, then it highlights the transition from the beginning of something to the end or vice versa.
To see a nest in your dream signifies comfort, safety, homeliness, protection, or new opportunities. Consider the condition of the nest and how it parallels your waking home situation and home life. Alternatively, the nest also means emotional dependency.
To see a crow in your dream represents death and the darker aspects of your character. The dream could also be pointing out your annoying habits. Alternatively, the crow may be conveying a message from your subconscious. To dream that crows are on the attack indicates a conflict with your subconscious.
To see a bear in your dream represents independence, strength, death and renewal, and/or resurrection. Bears are symbolic of the cycle of life. Thus if you see a dead bear in your dream, then it is highlights the end of some old habit or behavior and the beginning of a new attitude. You may also be undergoing a period of introspection and thinking. In particular, if you see a bear in your grandmother’s house, then it implies that your grandmother is a dominating figure in your life.
Well now, that is kind of creepy. A lot of death and darkness there. But, it is my dream, and I’ll look at it is just for me. It is a deeply personal dream. Here is what it means:
I have been on a journey, a long, dark time of the soul. This dream, for me, is an end of that journey. The tree trunk is my life. The crow is my past. The bear signifies my independence and renewal. My past is no longer a death threat, it has been chased away by my future. This is pivotal. It is a new beginning…
