Dreams starting with J

Jackal
Jackal

The symbolism of the Jackal pertains to petty and unscrupulous, yet cra%, behavior. As such, in our dream landscape, we may be expressing guilt over devious actions perpetrated. On the other hand, since the jackal is primarily a forager, we may be illustrating an aimless search for something useful, or challenging, in our life.

Jade
Jade

Like gold, jade is charged with yang, that is with cosmic energy (see yin and yang). As the very symbol of yang, it ‘is consequently endowed with a whole collection of solar, imperial and indestructible qualities’. Hence the important role which it played in Ancient China. Its beauty makes jade an emblem of perfection.

Jaguar
Jaguar

Central American Indians thought of four jaguars watching over the four tracks leading to the centre of their villages. This custom may have derived from the ancient Mayan belief that four mythic jaguars at the beginning of time guarded the maize-fields. A stylized pair of jaguar-jaws symbolizes Heaven on monuments.

Jewelry
Jewelry

In esoteric science, the components of jewelry - its glittering gems and metals, chiefly incorruptible gold - are, in the alchemical sense of the word, the ‘ripest’ of materials, which make them emanations of primordial energy. Chthonian, because they spring from the womb of Earth, in a different context they suggest the drive of the libido.

Journey
Journey

The journey in the dream may tell you what is actually happening in your life at present, or - less often - how you ought to live. For example, if the journey is a spiral climb and, near the summit, you get confused by the signposts, so that you never reach your destination, this is probably a reflection of a recurring pattern.
