Dreams starting with R

Rain

The archetypal symbolism of Rain pertains to psychological extinction, emotional purification and natural regeneration. As such, our unconscious illustrates the torrential skies as a tearful acceptance of death’s transformation into rebirth and the eternal cycle of renewal. Hence, we are continuously cleansed in the new realizations of our psyche.

Rat

The symbolism of the Rat pertains to shrewd faculties and their corresponding capacity for survival in horrid and utterly reprehensible conditions. Unfortunately, in human beings this instinct may sometimes involve relying on the selfish, backhanded or back stabbing temperament of oneself. A betrayal of allies in order to personally survive.

Red

The color Red is symbolic of intense passions including anger, lust and shame. Moreover, its association with blood manifests deep emotional and spiritual connotations. Consequently, any and all red figures found within the dream landscape may refer to a raise in the entire propensity and fervor of the symbols revealed.

Reed

Broadly speaking reeds are taken as symbols of what is fragile as well as what is flexible. The latter is Aesop’s reed (as opposed to his oak), the former, perhaps, Pascal’s ‘thinking reed’. In the Far East, the symbolism of the plant takes two distinct forms. In Shinto mythology the reed equates with the lotus. Mythical Japan was a ‘reed-bed’.
