Maybe it’s Neptune in Western Astrology slowing down to station direct in Pisces close to my natal Moon, but I have been having very detailed and vivid dreams lately. I have made dream journal entries for nearly every day for the past three weeks! (More Psyche & The Dreamworld posts to come!) Last week I had the following dream:
I am with my brother (aka my animus), and we were taking care of the animals before a trip or move. I think the car was packed full. I was checking the hamster and mouse cage, and two very fat and messy-looking mice had gotten out. I knew I had to let them go. The hamsters, about 5 or 6 of them, were playful, trim, healthy, and safe.
I had both dreamt about and written about Animal Spirits: The Mouse/Rat a couple of years ago, so visit that post for mouse symbolism and a glimpse into my psyche back then. This recent dream was much more peaceful – I am willing to let go of the mice, who are not so healthy and are of the past, and am happy with the abundance and responsibility of taking care of the hamsters. They/I am healthy and safe, and ready to move on on a new journey. This dream also is an affirmation from my unconscious concerning my plans to move, and all the opportunities that are opening up for me as I take flight. See this Butterfly Journal post for more understanding of this Neptune in Pisces meaning for me.
The Hamster Symbolizes:
- Abundance & Opportunities
- Guides to move towards Opportunites
- Having Fun & Enjoying Life
- Love & Responsiblity
Footnote: Hamsters used to be a big part of my life for several years when I was a child. I had hamsters, bred them, and even used them for a science project on genetics through breeding in the fourth grade. (I won first prize!) Opportunites abound!
