The Dream Book of Self-Knowledge
- flying: the male component of the soul has taken flight; all that remains is the rebirth in fire as the mythical Phoenix.
- killing: very negative for the dreamer since he is trying to silence his own male side without realizing that happiness, peace and tranquility can only be found in the harmony of the male and female principle.
- described in alchemy as the antithesis of the swan*55 and it has the same meaning in the unconscious.
- man with an eagle's head; the transformation of a man into an eagle or vice versa: an essential dream that can lead a person to the discovery of shamanic abilities within his own psyche; the realm of therianthropes*22 and animal spirits can then be a blessing for life for the good of others.
