The Dream Book of Self-Knowledge


  • a symbol elevating sensuality and sexuality which is why an emotional and spiritual person does not on principle go to celebrations, and if he finds himself there he quickly leaves to seek peace and tranquility for his soul.
  • celebration participants: representatives of the instinctual anima and instinctual animus.
  • a holiday with celebrations: very negative since the dreamer is cluttering his soul with other vain images instead of gaining strength in images of emotion.
  • a positive element among dream symbols since in almost all cases it confirms success in self-improvement, though it also entails pride with which a ceremony can fall to a mere instinctual feast; a celebration frequently accompanies many archetypes.
  • a celebration with a religious or mythological subtext: culminates a successful period of self-knowledge and enables the dreamer to understand the sources of humanity.
  • distributing bull meat at a feast, but not eating it yourself: an important dream in which the dreamer documents his control over sexuality and renounces sexual desire that others in the form of the portions of meat enthusiastically accept.
  • spring celebration (Carnival): see Carnival; for carnival masks see Mask.
  • religious, a ceremonial church procession: the celebration of Christian holidays symbolizes the proper path toward spiritual ideals only if we feel and experience the essence of the holiday within, otherwise Christian holidays are merely ecclesiastical gilt.
