DAZZLED BY A BEAUTIFUL MANE

In a recurring dream I’m on a mountaintop looking down at a valley. Two men are trying to capture a beautiful white horse that escapes, runs toward me and transforms into a beautiful naked blond woman with long hair. Sometimes she wears a white cape. We hug happily, but my siblings appear and pull me into a dark house. They sit me down in the kitchen and scold me saying, “You cannot do that.” What does this mean? Erika Hinz, Caracas, Venezuela

Analysis: Valleys often symbolize depression — the lows in life. The horse that escapes represents a willful spirit that will not be reined in by societal demands and conventions. Freedom of expression is sought from those who inhibit you. The horse becomes a woman to reveal the transformative wish to combine masculinity with femininity. On some level there is the need for exposure, to be stripped of all artifice and viewed as who you are: Lady Godiva perhaps. As such, you may wish to stave off oppression.

HORRORS IN STORE AT THE MALL

I dreamt I got abducted in the parking lot of a mall and driven off in a van to a bad area where gang members lived. A male gang member sat next to me. I was calling for help on my cell when they drove back to the mall and put me in an underground place where they tried to drug me and keep me there. When I finally escaped to the mall, I cried out but everyone ignored me. I opened a door, passed one of the abductors, and kept running. Please interpret this nightmare.

They drove back to the mall and put me in an underground place where they tried to drug me and keep me there.

Analysis: A sense of violation of personal space makes you seek a way out of a bad situation. When one is overwhelmed or manipulated, one understands that control is an issue. Anger or resentment over being disregarded or overlooked has made escaping from your environs desirable. Perhaps some sort of captivity or confinement — a relationship, marriage or obligation — has made you cry out for autonomy and self-rule.
