  • of a river into another river: symbolizes the merging of souls, opinions and ideas; this image can foretell of an emotional relationship and ensuing shared path.
  • estuary of a river into the sea: sometimes symbolizes the fusion of the soul, opinions, or current of thought and the unconscious into an indivisible whole (the dissolution of the ego); at other times it can relate to prenatal memories (see Basic Perinatal Matrix archetype) or is the result of the dreamer's penetration to the unconscious content of his psyche.
