Last night I slept badly. Just insomnia kicking my butt again. Anyway, when I finally did get under, I had one of those dreams that makes you feel freaked out while it is happening and then makes you wonder what your sub/super concious might be telling you.
I was sitting in a backyard somewhere in a beautiful garden setting at night. I was looking up through this gorgeous old tree and seeing the stars twinkle, when I saw a shooting star. Then another and another and was very happy that I was getting to see a very active meteor shower! They started going faster and then there was this huge clump of stars that started swirling around, looking kinda like the trail Tinkerbell would leave when she flew.
This swirl of stars got bigger and twinklier and I was just so in awe and happy. Then they started getting lower and lower and lower and my awe turned to freak out as this "star" thing landed in the tree I was under.
Then things started falling on me and pecking me and they were little bird things? Things with beaks. It didn't hurt but was more annoying. The worst was looking down and seeing a small snake curled up in a tight coil, on my stomach - and I was standing, so it was stuck there or defying gravity.
I was pretty much in that silent terror of OMG what do I do now and wondering how to peel this snake off me without getting bit and I could hear/feel those pecking things and then I woke up.
Now bird attacks in dreams can mean being pulled in too many directions. That is kinda true but I didn't think it was a big thing. The shooting stars, self-fulfillment.
Snakes: I hate snakes. HATE snakes. Yet I often dream of them when I am bothered by something I may need to face. In this instance, it was tiny and green - which tells me my fears are unwarranted and whatever is bothering me isn't going to be a huge issue. Well. Ok then.
To add to that is a nice bit of connection. I earlier had a dream about the Strength Tarot card and have been looking at that more closely and today I saw a version of the strength card with a snake on it.
I love it when the Universe sends me things like this. Puzzles puzzles to keep me on my feet LOL I could do without the Universe laughing maniacally at my "plans" for a day off and then watch me regroup and try to stay mindful when it all goes pear shaped! Then I get annoyed at Universe and make surly remarks under my breath at it until it goes and gives me an oracle spread to say, "ok, I messed with your plans but not really, they just weren't meant to happen that way but try to get some rest and maybe read a bit and everything will be ok."
