The Dream Book of Self-Knowledge
- an erotic symbol.
- on a tree: the promise of a romantic experience.
- rotting: for everyday life it indicates disturbed emotional ties with the possibility of breaking up partner relations, but for spiritual development it means the very positive disintegration of sexual symbols.
- growing on a bush instead of a tree: the symbol is degraded in the subconscious and does not have such an influence on the dreamer.
- pressing: if the resulting product is oil, then this images has a deep mystical meaning in dream symbolism since it is a foreshadowing of spiritual anointing that appears in Christianity as well as in Judaism; in other cases it may consist of the subconscious elimination of sexual symbols.
