a Fire Rimmed Sky right before the Storm : dream interpretation

Last night I dreamed that while traveling with my daughter I noticed the clouds were glowing with a bright red rims, like they were on fire. My thought was “it looks like the sky is rimmed with fire”. It was so beautiful that I wanted to take a photo but was unable to due to the fact that I was driving. Eventually the sky darkened and in the dream it was implied that a big storm was coming. So i asked my daughter if she wanted to shelter at her friends’ (some kid’s she’d been on a playing with) place or my mermaid friends’ place. She told me that she wanted to go to the mermaids’ place so we drove over to their apartment and hung out with the adult mermaid couple.

I decided to use the Voyager Tarot to read on this. I used a customized tarot spread based on a typical three card spread.
Card 1: What is around/about in the dream. XIV Art
Card 2: What is within/beneath the surface of the dream. Woman of Wands : Sensor
Card 3: What does the dream reveal. Inverted Nine of Wands: Integrity
Bottom Card: What Grounds me Man of Crystals : Inventor
Crowning Card: What Crowns me Two of Crystals : Equanimity

reading for the fire rimmed sky dream

The energy around the dream is my creative expression and artistry: the travel, the adventure, the beautiful red sky glowing with fire and drive. What is within the dream is my sensitivity and intuition, knowing from feeling the energy: hence as soon as the sky darkened i knew a storm was coming. What the dream reveals is that i do not have solid foundation which gives my structure integrity, parts of me are wobbly. The Nine of Wands traditionally implies defenses, thus I consider this card to also show that i am letting go of strictness and being more flexible and receptive of what is to come. Instead of forcing myself to weather out the storm I asked my daughter where she’d like to stay and we traveled to my mermaid friends’ place. I felt safer with them than on my own. What grounds me is my inventive personality that is always composing new and innovative solutions to the problems i see: during the dream i was not once “worried”, i just resolved our travel “issues” one by one with ease, everything flowed, and i could easily resolve things that came up. What crowns me is awareness and objectivity, not being distracted by the jumble of confusion and staying clear like a crystal. Whether it be fire in the sky or a coming storm. What is best for me is to stay clear-headed and non-judgemental. Prior to seeing the fire rimmed sky we encountered many different characters as we traveled through RPG-style side quests, my daughter made many new friends who were all different, and we became good friends with a mermaid couple.

I put “fire rimmed sky” in the search bar and Xiuhcoatl came up, a fire serpent and weapon of destruction.

Fire, burning and darting through the sky as the storm surges
We prepare for the coming deluge

Fire, burning, and darting through the sky, as the storm surges
We prepare for the coming deluge

My previous dreams had a lot of water, and now fire is starting to mix in … i am moving from transmutation to transformation.

And I am so tired tonight, on top of caring for hearth and home i have been attending inspirational webinars (and doing self-analysis/reflection) 10-20 hrs a week, using card divination to aid with self reflection and then blogging about everything. Fortunately i have less work hours, which balances out all my “extracurricular” work. Today i went out on a “break” (aka errands that had piled up) with different decks in different locations and layouts in my home. I did come back to finish journaling and interpreting them all. I am also working on new income related business ventures and projects 😀 I have a coach/business partner for one of them. I think of Synchronicity as i recollect how I randomly set up a dinner play date at her place the night of the full moon, right after I had finished a webinar series called “Manifest 5k”. I know and have been told (by intuitive readers) that I work best with external drive. I am going to own up to that aspect of myself and Also find a coach for my intuitive art project.


Resting in the Coffin of a Long Gone Lover

I didn’t used to pay any attention to Mercury Retrograde, but lately i’v noticed that it Does affect me, and Heavily.

Last night, I dreamed of traveling in a subway train to this outdoors woodsy type place to take part of a challenge, which was to live in this area for a week. I walked around absorbing the sights, sounds and feelings of the environment, while also observing the temporary dwellings of other challengers. The little old lady had built a cute little cottage, it was a red cherry wood color with a deep red varnish and had cute mat teal green wooden board type shingles, there were cute decorative shutters with flowers carved in the wood and maybe a pet (i don’t remember too clearly). According to the dream logic, it was the size of a “tiny house”, which was the size of a dumpster. The last guy i had been with was also there, and he had brought a coffin to serve as his tent. This coffin was the size of a car, had the look and feel of plywood from the hardware store, and it’s lid lifted up and stayed in place like the lid over the body of a grand piano. In the dream i thought about how it was a good structure to stand against the rain and asked him if he’d gotten that from the nearby town, to which he replied yes, and that town was 8 hrs away from here. I continued walking around observing the ground, seeing the damp leaves and feeling the moist over cast weather. Very blue gray with damp red fallen leaves on the ground. As night fell, I needed a place to stay since I had not made or brought my own dwelling, so I texted The guy and he replied with a message telling me to not bother him because he was spending the night in town. It was implied in the dream that i had permission to stay in his coffin, which i did for the rest of the challenge week, and The guy was never there as he was spending every night in town. I thought of how it would be nice for him to hold me as i rested but i also thought of how he most likely had a new girlfriend by now, even though i’d never asked him (both in real life and in the dream).
During the week the rain started Pouring and everyone in this area decided to gather in the subway station to celebrate. We all danced in a damp subway station with water logged cement floors, with some dancers flying up into the air.
At the end of the challenge, i was declared the winner of the challenge because i’d spent the entire week camping out in The guy’s coffin while other people either weren’t there (like The guy) or had their structure washed away by the rain (The little old lady).

Staying in the coffin of a long gone lover, wishing to be held again. Within this hiding place i rest my flame and take a break from the burning. I tend to myself so that the torrent of rain will not wash me away like everyone else.

Fresh rain is clearing, cleansing and to be celebrated! We let the water wash us, yet are careful to not be swept up and away by the current.

I rest as i shed my skin and grow

(photo of coffin here that i got online because pictures look nice in blog posts and i didn’t want to draw a coffin last minute. if anyone has better ideas on where and how to get random stock images like this, let me know 🙂 i am going to get better at looking for stock images as i write more)

During this Mercury Retrograde, i started with going back to a hobby i had quit, then started a side income idea i had given up on, and now i dream of the last guy.

As i type this i realize that my dreams are in sequence with each other, first i fight with myself and my shadow, then Anubis brings me to the shadow realm, and last night i rested in the coffin of a long gone lover.


Ah Sacred Heart

Ah Sacred Heart! What inspiration seethes in your world today? What aspect, as a microcosm of the universe, will you reveal to me today?

Inspired by talking to Judi Cali and also the concept of Yin Yang (陰陽) which has to do with my dream last night.

Last night, 3 women appeared in my dream: the first one represented giving with boundaries and good business sense/ethics, the second one was a healer who pulled a snake-like worm out of my right side, she represented Yin 陰 energy, and the third was masculine and represented Yang 陽 energy.

I woke up feeling like i had gone through a shamanistic cleansing, healed & rested. I was SO happy that my neck soreness was gone and looked forward to swimming at the beach since the weather was quite warm. It was nice seeing other people there, a family swimming, And one other person swimming out to the buoy without a wet suit. Glad that I wasn’t the only person swimming without a wet suit today 😛

beach

Swimming in the beach is always nice adventure that doubles as a spiritually and physically cleansing activity. Floating along the waves and enjoying the movement allows me to surrender and relinquish the ego’s control over my mind, filling myself with gratitude and love for the universe.
