  3. An upcoming birth in the dreamer's immediate circle.

This symbol's significance depends greatly on the other symbols in the dream. If the bag is empty, it could signify financial trouble ahead, but this can be averted with a little caution. A full or heavy bag indicates financial success, and a large full bag implies the attainment of some of your more cherished dreams. A suitcase indicates travel ahead.


  1. Standing on a balcony looking out at lovely surroundings implies happiness, particularly in love. Looking out at storms or other ominous symbols indicates obstacles ahead.
  2. Standing on the ground looking up at a balcony indicates aspirations. How they turn out depends on other symbols in the dream.
  3. If the balcony is unstable or collapses, something you're depending on will not manifest.


  1. Loss of strength and power. (e.g., Samson after Delilah cut off all his hair.)
  2. Nakedness; revealing that which you don't want to reveal; baring it all.

Tarot Parallels: Strength reversed


If you were the dancer in the dream, happy times lie ahead and all of your present enterprises will succeed. If you were watching one or more people dancing the ballet, an increased social life and lots of new friends are just around the corner. All in all, a very positive symbol.


Water being a universal symbol for life, to immerse yourself in a warm, pleasant bath can mean that your life is about to take a turn for the better. If the water is too hot or too cold, however, your plans for the immediate future need some revision.


  1. Secret places, where the company of others is usually not desired.
  2. Cleanliness, (next to godliness); ritual cleansing.

Astrological Parallels: Scorpio


  1. As feet are a symbol for the "under-standing" and also for the feelings, dreaming of being barefoot indicates that you are viewing something in your life in the simplest way. It could also mean that your deepest feelings are apparent to just about everyone around you and perhaps you need to hide them a little better.
  2. Bare, unprotected feet imply difficulties to be overcome.


  1. A beach is where the earth meets the water; hence, dreaming of standing on a beach looking out at the water implies intense spiritual experiences ahead.
  2. Swimming in the surf implies becoming involved in deep emotions; hence this could imply a new love, the birth of a baby, or the appearance of a long-term friend.
  3. Working on a beach warns that difficult times lie ahead financially, and that you may need to either seek help or work that much harder to make ends meet.
  4. Lying on a beach is a dream of contrary, hinting that you better enjoy yourself now, because you will soon be too busy to do much relaxing.


Dreaming of a full, luxuriant beard on the face of a friendly man can indicate luck ahead. A beard on a woman, however, is an attention-getter, indicating that this dream is an important one and close attention should be paid to the other symbols in the dream. If a man wearing a beard seems unfriendly and ominous, or if the man is also wearing glasses, then someone important to you is hiding something.


Beauty of any kind - scenery, art works, gardens, women and young men - is always a positive omen of happy times ahead.

Beer (see Alcohol)

  1. Drinking good beer from a can or small bottle indicates something wonderful coming - in a humble package.
  2. Drinking beer drawn from a keg or fountain is an omen of happiness and prosperity, especially if there was foam on it.
  3. Flat, stale, or poor quality beer indicates disappointment in something for which you have high expectations.


Dreaming of a bicycle indicates assistance along the road of life. If you were trying to ride uphill, progress will be slow; riding downhill means that your plans will manifest quickly. Pushing the bicycle means that the help you receive will be more trouble than it's worth. Good weather means steady progress; bad weather means a need for a respite, and for reevaluation.


  1. Songbirds are a universal symbol for happy news, especially if they are brightly colored and/or singing. If they are flying, then your life is going to definitely take a turn for the better. Dead or injured birds, however, indicate either a halt to or a need to revise some of your plans for the future.
  2. Birds of prey represent a warning: Someone is trying to take unfair advantage of you. See "Eagle", "Falcon", "Hawk".
  3. Birds' eggs in a nest indicate a new life full of hope - or this could possibly be a pun meaning money coming. In other words, you'll soon acquire a "nest egg." An empty nest hints at a change of residence.


The birth of a human child is a universal symbol for good news, happiness, and/or a whole new life. The birth of twins or triplets indicates wealth. If the birth involved friendly animals such as dogs, cats, horses or dolphins, then allies who will be of great assistance to you soon surround you. The birth of scary animals, however, such as predators of all kinds, indicates the opposite: Your adversaries are gaining ground and you need to strengthen your resources.


  1. Dreaming of biting into a piece of fruit or other food indicates that you will soon take hold of a long-term problem and bring it to a resolution.
  2. Dreaming of biting someone you know is usually a wish-fulfillment dream, expressing anger, either overt or repressed, toward that person and a desire to punish him or her. Dreaming of biting a stranger, or an animal, indicates a psychological conundrum that needs to be brought to the surface and resolved.
  3. Dreaming of being bitten by a person is a harbinger of treachery and betrayal - and if you know the person, be careful what you say to him or her.
  4. Dreaming of being bitten by an animal implies the revelation of someone else's secrets - that you'd really rather not know. This also could be interpreted to mean that you should avoid becoming involved in the affairs of others.


Unhappiness. A rough road ahead. Something that the dreamer needs to know. In extreme cases, a death - BUT THE DREAMER'S DEATH IS NEVER SHOWN.

Astrological Parallels: Libra

Boxer, Boxing

  1. Do you feel as if you're in a "sparring match" with someone around you? If so, dreaming of a boxing match could indicate that it's not going to get any better and you need to take steps to end it.
  2. A boxer with a lot of injuries foreshadows a lot of ideas that are going to need further research and revisions. If the boxer is a woman, you're nursing a lot of emotional scars that need more care than you're giving them.

Boy Scout

  1. If you were the Boy or Girl Scout, you will soon be called upon to provide assistance for a friend or relative.
  2. If a Boy Scout guides you somewhere, your intellect is leading you toward new experiences. If a Girl Scout guides you, then your supportive mind (emotions and intuition) will lead you to the new experiences. For what those experiences might be, look to other symbols in the dream.


  1. Life.
  2. Absorbing information; learning. The need or desire to learn about something.

Astrological Parallels: Gemini


  1. Transition; crossing from one way of life to another.
  2. A rise in the level of consciousness on the part of the dreamer; heightened awareness.

Astrological Parallels: Scorpio


  1. Using a broom to sweep indicates a strong desire to clean all non-essentials out of your life. If the broom is new, it implies good news and/or success. If the broom is old and dirty, however, making the necessary changes in your life is going to be more difficult and take longer than you think.
  2. Dreaming of the plant broom indicates that you are feeling bitter about something in your life, or that you feel that your life is barren and joyless. If the plant is flowering, however, there is a chance for a new start.


Illness. Materialism.


  1. If you were the Buddha, this is a dream of contrary. You may feel in possession of knowledge and wisdom that you don't currently have, but that you can obtain through study and meditation.
  2. Dreaming of being in the presence of the Buddha is a very powerful dream, possibly an actual experience of the Buddha or the wisdom he embodied, or a harbinger of such an experience.


  1. Something is bothering you - that is, "bugging" you. This may be on an unconscious level, so watch for other signals in the dream.
  2. An illness that might not be readily apparent - in short, a "bug."
  3. A minuscule or unseen enemy.

Astrological Parallels: Scorpio


An astrological symbol. In ancient times, the bull was a symbol of fertility, and so if you want a baby, dreaming of a bull is a surefire sign that this is the right time to try. The bull also symbolizes wisdom and security, so a strong and calm bull indicates financial growth through one's own efforts. A mad, raging bull, however, hints at financial reverses due to rash and impulsive spending or investing. See "Calf", "Cow".


Because of its mysterious transmogrification from a caterpillar, the butterfly is a universal symbol for intense transformation, usually for the better. If the butterfly is in the egg stage, the coming change is still but an idea. In the larva stage, a decision needs to be made. In the cocoon stage, you are working to make your dreams a reality. An adult butterfly flying in the air indicates sharing, or the need to share, your ideas with the world.


Buttons refer to the need to find ways to keep certain things together. If you lose a button, or if a button is broken, it means that alternate ways need to be found. If you're sewing a button back onto a garment, then you have the ingenuity to do whatever needs to be done.


  1. Traveling by bus indicates that you are on the road to attaining your heart's desire.
  2. Waiting for a bus indicates frustrations ahead - obstacles on your path to success, love, fame, enlightenment, or whatever it is that you want the most. It can also be reassuring, however, in that it means that the frustrations will be temporary.
  3. Being in an accident while riding on a bus indicates financial troubles ahead. Look to other symbols in the dream to discern how to avoid those troubles.
