A comprehensive guide to dream symbols and their interpretations.
Dreams provide vital clues to hidden feelings, fears and desires; understanding your dreams can lead to greater self-awareness and self-healing. Each image that appears in a dream has a meaning and The Dream Dictionary is an invaluable, detailed guide to decoding these meanings.
The book begins with an extensive introduction: from the classic theories of Freud and Jung, to more recent ideas on dream analysis, it provides a wealth of background information on the study of dreams and on the images examined in the dictionary section.
From abandonment to zodiacal signs, the comprehensive dictionary has more than 700 entries. Each entry gives a range of possible interpretations for a particular dream symbol, allowing you wide scope for deciphering your dream and for assessing its implications. Cross-referencing throughout, the dictionary allows you to examine all aspects of individual symbols.
