Other tales depict the pearl as an egg placed beneath the dragon's neck or chin. The dragon is said to carry the egg away until it is ready to hatch. By far the most agreed upon tale is that the pearl represents the dragon's wisdom - hence the term: "pearls of wisdom."

Tetraktys (Tetrakt)(Divine Revelation): This Tetraktys (from the Greek, tetras, four) is a triangular figure composed of the first ten points arranged in the shape of a pyramid.

Shamrock (Trefoil, Cloverleaf)(Divine Love): The Shamrock is the ubiquitous symbol of all things Irish. Although today it is usually regarded as a simple good luck charm or a St. Patrick’s day decoration, it is one of the oldest Celtic symbols.
The shamrock is a native species of clover in Ireland. A Catholic legend holds that St. Patrick used it’s three lobes as a device for teaching the Holy trinity. To the Druids who came before, it symbolized a similar “three in one” concept- the three dominions of earth, sky, and sea, the ages of man, and the phases of the moon. In Celtic folklore, the Shamrock is a charm against evil, a belief that has carried over in the modern reliance in the four leafed clover as a good luck charm.

Symbol Code: SM000733     Symbol Name: Celtic Ash Tree   (Category: Divinity )

Celtic Ash Tree(Divine Love): Celtic Ash Tree Meaning
Not only was its girth tremendous, its height was towering. Some ash trees are known to soar over 200 feet tall. Such incredible growth owes credit to a fantastic root system.
It's mass, height, and deeply imbedded roots were all metaphors for the spiritually minded Celts (and us too). The ash speaks to us of growth, expansion, and higher perspective. If we think symbolically as the ancient Celts were apt to do, we can liken our own soul-growth with that of the ash. With greater (higher) attainment, the more we need to stay grounded (well rooted).


Symbol Code: SM000734     Symbol Name: Celtic Hawthorn Tree   (Category: Divinity )

Celtic Hawthorn Tree(Divine Love): Celtic Hawthorn Tree Meaning
The Celtic meaning of the hawthorn tree deals with balance and duality. The hawthorn is full of contradictions, none of which went unnoticed by the soul-minded Celts.
In May, the hawthorn is in its glory with strikingly beautiful blossoms. These are nestled tightly among the hawthorn's large and lethal looking thorns. Here we see the first of several juxtapositions, giving this tree/shrub its colorful reputation in history.


Symbol Code: SM000741     Symbol Name: Meadowseet Flower   (Category: Divinity )

Meadowseet Flower(Divine Love): Among other floral essences, Meadowsweet was used to create the beautiful Blodeuwedd. A good look at this flower, and it's a no-brainer to see why. Lovely, delicate, soft and subtle - all the good stuff that Gwydion & Math wanted in a lady for Lleu. The symbolism of the Meadowsweet mainly deals with grace, refinement and elegance. Other names for Meadowsweet include: "Lady of the Meadow" and "Brideswort," the latter because it is a frequent bouquet of choice at weddings. In fact, Meadowsweet was sought after flower for marriage ceremonies in ancient Europe. In the tale of Blodeuwedd, this is symbolic of the intent for harmonious union between she and Lleu. The primary symbolic feature I pick up from Meadowsweet is that of honor and cherish. Not just because of its history in wedding chapels, but also because this fair flower has been found in several funerary remains of ancient Celtic burial sites. This ranks the Meadowsweet high on the symbolic list of honor, commemoration and gentle acknowledgement of fine attributes of the human soul.


Symbol Code: SM000742     Symbol Name: Broom Flower   (Category: Divinity )

Broom Flower(Divine Love): Blodeuwedd was also created from the essence of the Broom flower. The name is no coincidence. The branches of the Broom bush are perfect for sweeping (but not while the yellow blossoms are standing at attention, wait till the flowers drop off - otherwise sweeping with Broom branches leads to very nasty luck as the fables warn). Because of its handy household uses, flower symbolism of the Broom include a sense of orderliness, cleanliness, tidiness. Kind of like a "symbol of good house-keeping." It's bright yellow flowers are likened to the gold of the radiating sun, and therefore conjure symbolic attributes of light, energy, vitality and warmth. The Broom flower as a symbol also hints to humility - it's a simple bush...its needs are few (it can live quite well without much tending). Those who are drawn to the Broom flower as a personal symbol will be humble in his/her ways....resourceful too - making the best (and being happy) with simple things in life. Broom flower symbolism also points to matters of the heart; ingestion of the plant are known to affect cardiac function. Folk medicine cites Broom teas as a heart regulator (don't try it at home unless you know what you're doing - do i really have to say that? Sheesh). I appreciate this heart association connected with humbleness. The Broom is a bright reminder of how simple values can go a long way to balancing the heart.


Symbol Code: SM000743     Symbol Name: Celtic Hazel Tree   (Category: Divinity )

Celtic Hazel Tree(Divine Love): Celtic Hazel Tree Meaning
One look at the hazel tree and it's easy to see why the Celtic meaning of the hazel tree deals with creativity, and why the druids held it in such high regard amongst the Ogham ranks.
The hazel's unusual branch formations make it a delight to ponder, and was often used for inspiration in art, as well as poetry.
The bards, ovates and druids of the Celtic day would intently observe its crazy curly-Q branches. Doing this would lead them into other worlds of delightful fantasy. Much the same way our modern imaginations can be captured by a good movie, the creative Celts were artistically motivated by the seemingly random and wild contortions of the hazel.


Symbol Code: SM000744     Symbol Name: Celtic Apple Tree   (Category: Divinity )

Celtic Apple Tree(Divine Love): Celtic Apple Tree Meaning
The Celtic meaning of the apple tree deals with many things, including wholeness, purity and goodwill.

It’s brilliant flowers burst forth in the spring, usually ranging from pink to white. These flowers have a light aroma that lifts the spirit of all who pass by them. Ancient Celts would decorate bedchambers with the apple blossoms as a fertility gesture and to tribute the beauty and bounty life provides.

Symbol Code: SM000947     Symbol Name: Beaver   (Category: DIVINITY )

Beaver(DIVINE SELF): Beavers are ingenious builders, orchestrating megalith dams that can change the flowing course of entire rivers. This impressive aspect along with its association with water makes the beaver an analogy for building our up dreams.

Symbol Code: SM000948     Symbol Name: Symbolic Pelican   (Category: DIVINITY )

Symbolic Pelican(DIVINE SELF): Ancient alchemy linked pelican symbolism to the legendary Philosopher's Stone. This famed stone is said to turn other elements to gold, lending magical and transformative powers to the bird. This ideal is about revolution and the stages of transformation are related to specific colors. The red stage is the feeding stage and the predecessor to rebirth and associated with the majestic pelican.
The pronounced bill of the pelican contains a pouch used for fishing and drinking. Bills, and particularly large bills, represent self-indulgence, holding, and the capacity to take in a great deal. Pouches speak of containment, security, and transportation. If the pelican is your animal totem, it's highly likely you have an impressive ability to take in a lot of information at once and digest it all with relative ease. Pelican people are expert travelers too, able to travel light, and you're likely to have the travel bug in that you'll fly at the mere whisper of adventures ahead. Pelican people may also hold many thoughts to themselves, reluctant to be outspoken about their opinions. If this sounds like you, the pelican can help you digest all this information you're taking in, and also facilitate ways for you to "spit out" the great ideas you have and speak your mind with confidence.


Symbol Code: SM000949     Symbol Name: Horns   (Category: DIVINITY )

Horns(DIVINE SELF): Horns and antlers also point to the recycling nature of all life. Stags grow antlers in the Spring (symbolic of birth, renewal, the return of life), and fall off in the Fall (symbolic of death, introspection and hibernation). This would have prompted ancient consciousness to consider the phases of life, the cycles of being. Cernunnos would have encouraged the populous to viscerally feel the rise and fall of Nature and Time. His horns/antlers are a testimony to transience.

Goddess Symbols of Temperantia(DIVINE SELF): Temperantia is an ancient Roman goddess who embodies the concept of temperance and moderation. Moreover, she is the female manifestation of one among four of the cardinal virtues established by none other than Plato: Temperance.
Do all the cardinal virtues have deities impersonating them? Yes, and interestingly, they're all female. I hope to write about them all in terms of their god or goddess symbols as time allows.
Both Greeks and Romans had their own quartet of cardinal virtues. The Greek version of temperance, was sophrosune, which means to come into utter balance through inner (self) knowing.


Symbol Code: SM000961     Symbol Name: Vergina Sun (Macedonian sun, Argead Star)   (Category: DIVINITY )

Vergina Sun (Macedonian sun, Argead Star)(DIVINE SELF): A distinct eight, twelve, or sixteen rayed figure, Called the sun of Vergina.

The motif itself is ubiquitous in Greek and Macedonian art. It is most likely a solar symbol, being found in temple art depicting the sun God Helios.
Other notable examples of the motif have been found at Eleusis and at the Temple of Nemesis.
Since the discovery of the Tomb in Vergina, the sun emblem has made its way onto a number of Greek and Macedonian coins, flags, and other objects as a symbol of cultural identity.


Symbol Code: SM000973     Symbol Name: Winged Heart of the Sufi Order   (Category: Divinity )

Winged Heart of the Sufi Order(DIVINE TEACHER): The Symbol of the Sufi Order

The symbol of the Order is a heart with wings. It explains that the heart is between soul and body, a medium between spirit and matter. When the soul is covered by its love for matter it is naturally attracted to matter. This is the law of gravitation in abstract form, as it is said in the Bible, ‘Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.’ When man treasures the things of the earth his heart is drawn to the earth. But the heart is subject not only to gravitation, but also to attraction from on high, and as in the Egyptian symbology, wings are considered as the symbol of spiritual progress, the heart with wings expresses that the heart reaches upward towards heaven.


Symbol Code: SM000974     Symbol Name: Hotei (Ho Ti, Laughing Buddha, Maitreya)   (Category: Divinity )

Hotei (Ho Ti, Laughing Buddha, Maitreya)(DIVINE TEACHER): A typical Taoist image of Hotei, one of the seven Japanese “gods of good fortune” (Shichi Fukujin). He is usually depicted as a smiling Buddhist monk, often with a fan and a sack of gifts or gold bars. A patron of children and the less fortunate, Hote is often pictured surrounded by laughing children. Figures of Ho Ti are often kept as good luck charms. Hotei is often thought to be a representation of Chinese Buddhist teacher Budaishi, and as Budaishi was believed by devotees to be the incarnation of Matreiya, the “future Buddha” who is to come, Hotei is often considered synonymous with Maitreya. It is there fore not uncommon (although confusing) to find Hotei figures referred to as “Buddhas.”


Symbol Code: SM000975     Symbol Name: Jain Om (Bijaskhara, Navokar/Navkar)   (Category: Divinity )

Jain Om (Bijaskhara, Navokar/Navkar)(DIVINE TEACHER): This Jain Symbol is a modified version of the Hindu Om.

Arihantas, (Tirthankars or Jinas), the pure souls, the saints.

Babylonian Tree of Life (Mesopotamian Tree of Life)(DIVINE SELF): This image represents the early Mesopotamian Tree of Life.

It is the prototype of the tree described in Genesis: the biblical Tree of Paradise evolved directly from this ancient symbol; it is the symbol from which the Egyptian, Islamic, and Kabbalistic Tree of Life concepts originated.
The stylized images may also represent the spine and branches of the human nervous system. Its design is similar to that of the Egyptian djed and the Norse Irminsul.

Symbol Code: SM001013     Symbol Name: Eckankar (“Eck”) Emblem   (Category: DIVINITY )

Eckankar (“Eck”) Emblem(DIVINE SELF): The emblem of Eckankar, a spiritual group founded in 1965 by former Scientologist and Yoga initiate John Paul Twitchell. The philosophy of “Eck” follows that of numerous Eastern traditions that a divine sound current (“Om”) emanates throughout creation, becoming increasingly denser and entangled within the material. Mimicking the divine sound helps one to attune to that current and purifies matter, bringing one closer to the divine source.
The symbol itself is simply “Ek,” short for eckankar, a corruption of the words “Ek Onkar,” God is one or one essence; ‘omkar’ means, literally, ‘om creator’ and can be likened to the First Cause.
Omkar written in Sanskrit letters is what we commonly refer to as the “Om symbol.”


Symbol Code: SM001014     Symbol Name: Gnostic Serpent Wheel   (Category: DIVINITY )

Gnostic Serpent Wheel(DIVINE SELF): The Gnostic Serpent Wheel pictured above represents the eight Aeons of Gnosticism. It is a emblem of the cycles of time and is a symbol of the Gnostic messiah- the eighth Aeon who brings awakening and restores unity. It is closely related to the eight-spoked catholic baptismal cross- the Sunday of the resurrection was for early Christians an eighth day, and symbolized regeneration. This cycle was represented for some Gnostics by the serpent, who was associated with the “self-begotten” Deity by virtue of its ability to “give birth to itself” by the shedding of its skin.


Symbol Code: SM001015     Symbol Name: Chalice Well at Glastonbury   (Category: DIVINITY )

Chalice Well at Glastonbury(DIVINE SELF): This is a simplified image of the design that graces the cover of the Chalice Well at Glastonbury, designed in the nineteenth century by archaeologist Bligh Bond. Crafted of wrought iron and wood, it depicts the Vesica Pisces, a symbol of the divine feminine, and Excalibur, the sword of the legendary King Arthur, who is believed by some to be buried at Glastonbury.
The wellspring at Glastonbury is considered to be one of England’s most Holy sites. The well itself dates back over two thousand years, and was sacred to both early Pagans and the Christians who later built an abbey on the site. Today, the well is a place of pilgrimage for Christians and Pagans alike, many of whom believe the red, iron rich water has healing and miraculous properties. The vesica Pisces theme is repeated in the shape of the pool at the base of the hill, where the water from the spring flows.


Symbol Code: SM001016     Symbol Name: Babylonian Tree of Life (Mesopotamian Tree of Life)   (Category: DIVINITY )

Babylonian Tree of Life (Mesopotamian Tree of Life)(DIVINE SELF): This image represents the early Mesopotamian Tree of Life.

It is the prototype of the tree described in Genesis: the biblical Tree of Paradise evolved directly from this ancient symbol; it is the symbol from which the Egyptian, Islamic, and Kabbalistic Tree of Life concepts originated.
The stylized images may also represent the spine and branches of the human nervous system. Its design is similar to that of the Egyptian djed and the Norse Irminsul.


Symbol Code: SM001017     Symbol Name: The Mythological Eagle   (Category: DIVINITY )

The Mythological Eagle(DIVINE SELF): The Eagle is the universal emblem of the gods of the sky. The cosmic eagle is a symbol of the highest aspirations of the spirit, and its triumph over the carnal nature.

It is most often a solar symbol, but sometimes it is thunder or lightning. The divine eagle is often a hybrid or transformed man, often a king or hero of great virtue.
Astrologically, the eagle is the highest aspect of the sign Scorpio; its lower aspect is a serpent. Alchemically, it is the emblem of the element of air and is associated with the process of sublimation, wherein the volatile principal is heated until it “flies up to heaven.” A double-headed eagle represents the union of opposites and is an important emblem of Freemasonry.


Symbol Code: SM001018     Symbol Name: Star and Crescent of Islam   (Category: DIVINITY )

Star and Crescent of Islam(DIVINE SELF): This emblem, commonly recognized as the symbol of the Islamic faith, has actually acquired its association to the faith by association, rather than intent.
The star and crescent symbol itself is very ancient, dating back to early Sumerian civilization, where it was associated with the sun God and moon Goddess (one early appearance dates to 2100 BCE), and later, with Goddesses Tanit and even Diana. The symbol remained in near constant use, and was eventually adopted into the battle-standard of the Ottoman Dynasty, who are mainly responsible for its association with Islam. As the Dynasty was also the policitical head of the faith, it was inevitable that their symbol would be associated with Islam as well. It should be noted that there is no mention of such a symbol in the Koran, the Holy book of Islam, nor is there any relationship between the crescent and star and the Prophet (whose flag was black and white, inscribed “Nasr um min Allah,” “with the help of Allah.”)


Symbol Code: SM001019     Symbol Name: Fasces (Colon)   (Category: DIVINITY )

Fasces (Colon)(DIVINE SELF): The word fasces comes from the the Roman word meaning bundle. The fasces itself is an axe or pointed weapon surrounded by bundled rods of wood- usually elm. It’s original use and true meaning is lost, although it probably originated as a phallic emblem.
The fasces was a symbol of authority in ancient Rome, most often associated with magistrates. Bundles of rods without a weapon were called bacilli, the emblem of the duumviri, magistrates without the power to pass a sentence of death. It is supposed that the bundles rods represented the unified people; the axe, authority and power.


Symbol Code: SM001020     Symbol Name: Mano Cornuto (Horned Hand)   (Category: DIVINITY )

Mano Cornuto (Horned Hand)(DIVINE SELF): Mano Cornuto means “horned hand” in Italian; the gesture is commonly depicted on charms against the evil eye. It is unclear whether the gesture originated as an image of horns or as a “poking out the eyes” gesture (against the malocchio or “evil eye”), but ancient lunar goddess charms depicting animal horns were used for similar protective purposes and are probably related to the gesture.
The use of the horns as a symbol of satanic belief is recent, and is evolved from its use by heavy metal musicians and fans. (A good discussion of the use of the horned hand gesture in rock can be found here.) The horned Hand gesture is also used occasionally by Wiccans as a symbol of the “horned God” or as the horns of the Moon Goddess, depending on tradition.

Symbol Code: SM001077     Symbol Name: Torc   (Category: DIVINITY )

Torc(DIVINE SELF): Apart from artistic adornment, bartering and expressive craftsmanship, Celtic jewelry was also an immediately visual way to determine the status of a member within the community. The more ornate your piece, the higher your status in the clan. And, if you had more than one torc, you must have been hot stuff in the community. So if torcs are symbolic of nobility and status, Cernunnos depicted with two torcs indicates: 1) he was a integral and important part of the community, and 2) his status was high.
Golden torcs are also symbolic of high class due to wealth. This is noteworthy because another among the Celtic symbols of Cernunnos is a purse filled with golden coins. This, combined with the torc allows us to intuit Cernunnos as being completely comfortable with the idea of wealth. Further, Cernunnos is said to be quite generous in his riches (monetarily, agriculturally and in the spoils of the hunt). So, it does not seem too far-fetched to imagine the ancient Celts forming an alliance with Cernunnos as a means to gain status and wealth in their lives.


Symbol Code: SM001089     Symbol Name: Meaning of Eight in Tarot   (Category: Divinity )

Meaning of Eight in Tarot(DIVINE BREATHING SPIRIT): Envision the cyclical path of breath moving through your lungs and body in an eight-like (or infinity symbol) pattern. This lulls the munchy (critical) mind, engages the spirit in a softer activity, and thus ignites our deeper selves - flipping on an intuitive switch that turns on a depth within us that is both alpha, omega, and omni. Give it a try, it's effective and pretty amazing. Eights Most obvious symbolic tell is its written Arabic form ("8"). When we recognize is voluptuous curves, we also identify the lemniscate or infinity symbol. This symbol deals with balance, time, and more interestingly, the recycling travel path of energy.


Symbol Code: SM001109     Symbol Name: Lakshmi's Footprints   (Category: DIVINITY )

Lakshmi's Footprints(Divine Self): Lakshmi is a beloved scintillating East Indian goddess of good fortune, and believed to be the giver of great wealth. In addition to be fantastically beautiful Lakshmi is also generous and compassionate with her gifts. What's more, Lakshmi is all about refinement, beautification and opulence. Indian art depicting this goddess has tremendous "wow-factor" because she is bedecked, bejeweled and wholly beguiling.


Symbol Code: SM001126     Symbol Name: Crown   (Category: DIVINITY )

CrownIn most cultures, a crown is a symbol of not only royalty and nobility – but also divinity. For example deities and Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt wore double crowns to signify their divine stature as well as mark their endowment of divine power. In some religions, including Christianity, the crown represents divine glory and crowns were placed on the heads of newly deceased as a sign of their union with God upon their passing. In Eastern religions the crown worn is a sign of spiritual evolution – one step closer to divinity.


Symbol Code: SM001127     Symbol Name: Oak   (Category: DIVINITY )

Oak(DIVINE SELF): Oak pollen, to be specific. When Math and Gwydion cooked up the magnificently gorgeous Blodeuwedd, they used the pollen of the Oak as an animation agent. Think pixie dust - when blown in through the nostrils, in makes the inanimate come alive. Isn't that lovely? The Oak is a symbol of life, strength, stability to name a few qualities. Druidic lore held the Oak as a mammoth symbol of power, influence and considered it a chieftain among the sacred clan of trees. In the moral of Blodeuwedd, the Oak is a symbol of integrity (just as the Oak grown fine, strong and tall). Ideally, the Oak pollen breathed through her nostrils would instill faith, long life and fidelity to Lleu. We learn later in the myth that Blodeuwedd eyes wander (she takes off with Gronw), but nevertheless, the intention and symbolic power of the Oak is resolute. I guess there is symbolic moral in this too. We are what we make ourselves. We may be fashioned from certain elements, and that which creates us may have the finest intentions - but in the end - we are the choosers of our path.


Symbol Code: SM001128     Symbol Name: Moon Symbolism   (Category: DIVINITY )

Moon Symbolism(DIVINE SELF): Moon symbolism in general holds a special magic because lunar energy holds infinite potential. As the moon is in her glory in the midst of darkness, she is a vessel of unknowable power. Her strength is in her secrets.
Continuing in this state of lunar communion and exploration, ask to be shown the sacred cycles of lunar time. In this way you will be shown the motions of night life, like:
--Animals who dance with moon melodies.
--Birds aloft in lunar currents.
--Vegetation growing upwards, ever reaching out to touch moonlight.


Symbol Code: SM001129     Symbol Name: Blood   (Category: DIVINITY )

Blood(DIVINE SELF): Dream meaning of blood deals with life, fluidity, passion and that which sustains us. Blood dreams get right down to the nitty gritty of emotional issues that have been coagulating deep beneath surface life experience, those aspects that dwell in the deepest fathoms of our awareness. Some messages that may manifest from blood include a sense of guilt (dreaming of blood on our hands), overburdened or weak and needing to take rest (loosing blood in our dreams), challenges with making social connections or emotional ties (seeing someone else's blood).


Symbol Code: SM001130     Symbol Name: Broom Flower   (Category: DIVINITY )

Broom Flower(Divine Self): lodeuwedd was also created from the essence of the Broom flower. The name is no coincidence. The branches of the Broom bush are perfect for sweeping (but not while the yellow blossoms are standing at attention, wait till the flowers drop off - otherwise sweeping with Broom branches leads to very nasty luck as the fables warn). Because of its handy household uses, flower symbolism of the Broom include a sense of orderliness, cleanliness, tidiness. Kind of like a "symbol of good house-keeping." It's bright yellow flowers are likened to the gold of the radiating sun, and therefore conjure symbolic attributes of light, energy, vitality and warmth. The Broom flower as a symbol also hints to humility - it's a simple bush...its needs are few (it can live quite well without much tending). Those who are drawn to the Broom flower as a personal symbol will be humble in his/her ways....resourceful too - making the best (and being happy) with simple things in life. Broom flower symbolism also points to matters of the heart; ingestion of the plant are known to affect cardiac function. Folk medicine cites Broom teas as a heart regulator (don't try it at home unless you know what you're doing - do i really have to say that? Sheesh). I appreciate this heart association connected with humbleness. The Broom is a bright reminder of how simple values can go a long way to balancing the heart.


Symbol Code: SM001131     Symbol Name: Body   (Category: DIVINITY )

Body(Divine Self): Another foundational dream symbol, the body speaks from our dreaming mind in terms of stability, action, knowing, basics, foundations and structure. The body may also offer clues into our status of health. In our conscious realm, we rely most heavily on our physical senses for understanding - our bodies are big sensory devices, endlessly interpreting (taste, touch, smell, hearing, seeing). So, when we dream of bodies, it may be a call to pay closer attention to our surroundings - get a deeper sense or interpretation of our environment.


Symbol Code: SM001132     Symbol Name: Eyes   (Category: DIVINITY )

Eyes(Divine Self): Understandably, the dream meaning of eyes deals with perception. Eyes interpret light, and so when we dream of them we're dealing with a greater vision, illumination, enlightenment, understanding and even our concept of reality. Injured eyes may indicate we're not seeing the facts clearly, or we're simply unable to face certain truths at this time. Closed eyes may either indicate surrender to a situation (leaving it to faith) or choosing avoidance over action. Eye color in dreams is subject to your interpretation too. Eye patches suggests perception is marred, not all the facts are known, and it might be time to explore all the details.


Symbol Code: SM001133     Symbol Name: Face   (Category: DIVINITY )

Face(Divine Self): Dream meaning of faces should be interpreted according to the expression on the dream face. These are pretty explanatory. Happy faces elicit meanings of joy, harmony, peace, prosperity. Gruesome or unpleasant faces indicate turbulences, discontent, hostility, worry, inner displeasure. Illuminated faces are often portents of higher knowledge dispensed to the dreamer (maybe from a loved one, spirit guide or angel). A dream face with no features points to a heavy reliance on faith, spirituality or extrasensory perception to gain understanding over the use of physical senses. Also see dreaming of eyes (above).


Symbol Code: SM001150     Symbol Name: Armadillo   (Category: DIVINITY )

Armadillo(Divine Sleep): Armadillos sleep most of the day, some eighteen hours (just like sloths and anteaters, which are close cousins to the armadillo). When the armadillo burrows its way into your awareness as a totem or a messenger, it might be a good time to get some rest. Relax, recover, recuperate and consider withdrawing from social engagements for a time of renewal. Because armadillo's typically live in dens underground, we're observing womb-like symbolism. The Mother (Earth) is both womb and tomb to all life. If the armadillo is coming into your consciousness, consider big themes like this. Is it time to mother ourselves? Nurture ourselves? Is it time to become reborn? Or perhaps it's time to retreat, withdraw and become more reclusive. These are all questions the armadillo asks us on our life's journey.


Symbol Code: SM001156     Symbol Name: Beetle Bodies   (Category: DIVINITY )

Beetle BodiesThey're comprised of three parts (head, abdomen, thorax). There is a law of threes that goes something like: "whatever energy you put out into the environment will return to you threefold." In-step with beetle meaning of community, strength, recycling, spirituality...consider all these aspects, and contemplate what kind of vibes we are sending out within these symbolic beetle realms. What are we putting out into our community? If it's a crumby attitude, the rule of three suggests we'll reap some crumby stuff from our community. Are we mindful of your carbon footprints? If so, our conscientious efforts to purify the earth will be rewarded three-fold.
