Last night I had a dream and it was unusual in that it A) it seemed to make sense and B) I remember it.
I moved house. I had the key for 2 days before I went to my new home. The house had been left exactly how it was by the previous occupiers who left all their belongings and food etc. The estate agents were the company who built the homes previously and they were distraught at the state of the house. It wasn't dirty or unclean but the previous occupiers made odd modifications to the detriment of the home, i.e. artificial walls in wrong places and they weren't fitted correctly and existing walls being knocked down to create different spaces such as the wall between the downstairs toilet and the 2nd kitchen (2nd kitchen? what goes on in my head?) being removed so that they could have a mini home gym (I need to exercise, I get this very unsubtle hint from myself).
I remember the exact layout of the property and the colours of the walls and carpets and I remember its address, 8 William Street. I really like this address. I don't know any William Streets or anyone who lives at a number 8, but I really really like it. I remember the street sign on the end of the road up on the side of a building rather than being at thigh/hip height on a sign planted on the corner and I remember the front door. The door was dark red, wooden with 1920's style glass at its top and clear as you like right in the middle of the top of the door, number 8.
Also, my Bella moved with me. Bella was my beloved springer spaniel who passed last August when she was 15 years old. In my dream she was 16 years old.
I remember the pavement outside the property and I remember texting my parents to ask if they were coming to see my new home. I also remember telling Bella that I think my brother and his dog would be coming by to give her warning as my brothers' dog is a bit bouncy and she is an old lady.
I remember the pub nearby advertising that it had 2 bands playing every Saturday night and I remember considering applying for a job there on Saturday nights so that I wouldn't be disturbed in my new home by the noise and the corner shop which sold milk.
On an obvious level, I would move home but in reality I would move to a detached property whereas the dream property was part of a terraced row. My neighbours are so unbelievably noisy that I don't ever want an attached property ever again, at all, ever. I'm not sure I would also like a property where I would have to remove the gym (that shouldn't be in the toilet/kitchen area) and put the walls back to where they should be. I would definitely move to 8 William Street if the property was right though.
I pulled 3 cards to ask what this was about;
Card 1: What I need to know - The Moon
Card 2: What I need to do - Temperance
Card 3: Possible outcome - 7 of Cups
And as I wanted a bit more of a clue, the shadow card is the Wheel of Fortune.
What I need to know:
Well The Moon reminds us that there are times of confusion and disorientation but it is also the realm of dreams. The dark night is the womb where dreams and ideas and hopes gestate before being born in the light of day
What I need to do:
Temperance reminds us that life is balance and that feelings and emotions and creativity and the intellect must all be allowed to flow freely otherwise they get stifled and stagnation sets in. We have to experience it all, we cannot limit or eliminate what we don't like and wallow in what we do.
The 7 of cups reminds us that we have options. But, we have to know ourselves first. What exactly do we want? What is it that makes our soul sing? what goal do I want to achieve and which option will help me achieve it?
The Wheel of fortune reminds us that nothing lasts for ever. What is next? where do we turn for the next stage or lesson. This can be a time out after a hectic period or the next active period after a time of calm. This card is all about circles and cycles and seasons and wheels but it is about inevitability. You can not stay in one place, the next stage is ready and either you go and meet it or it will come and find you.
So, what is my dream and the cards telling me? As much as I love my home, I want to move but there is noise next door in my real home and organised noise next door to my dream home (now, my dream dream home... that is another kettle of fish entirely and actually exists but my finances don't. Well not yet anyway and they may do if my dream home goes on the market - always hopeful)
I have 3 Major Arcana cards here and none of them are fixed. They are all about shifting and moving and nothing concrete. Dreams, the flow of the senses and the cycles of life/universe/psyche always turning. This indicates a period of flux or uncertainty coming up. This makes sense as I have had The Fool, as the start of a journey and Eihwaz, as the rune of shamanic change this week already. You heard it hear first, the rug is definitely about to be pulled and I am going to be sent flying!
I need to find some balance and regulate what is/will be going on and find some fixed point, an anchor to steady me. Who am I? What do I want and what is the best option for me to take to obtain my dream? Now that I need to think on.
