Dreams & Their
Jean Benedict Raffa

Target - If you hit the target, then it may be telling you that your waking judgments are correct. However, if you missed, you may want to adjust them a bit.

Tattoo - Your dream could be telling you that a certain action will have long lasting and visible effects.

Tax - Possibly a reminder that you have to pay your taxes. It could also be telling you that you will have to pay for any actions you take.

Teacher - A symbol of guidance. Learning opportunities may be opening up to you.


  • (1) Teeth may be a symbol of aggressiveness. If the dream is showing someone bitting someone else, it may mean there is an aggressive nature towards that person.
  • (2) False teeth may symbolize insincerity. Dreaming of false teeth could be telling us that we have spoken lies recently, or that we are only putting on a show.
  • (3) Losing teeth may symbolize a feeling of - or fear of - getting older or impotent or losing sexual attractiveness. Or they may represent a retreat to infancy (when, toothless, you enjoy your mother's breasts and nourishment), and hence a refusal to face reality. Alternatively, they may symbolize the start of a new phase in your life (knocking a tooth out sometimes featured in male initiation rites in mythology). The loss of a tooth may represent a loss of self-respect.
  • (4) A bad tooth may represent a painful or rooten part of one's feelings, life or relationships; angry or regretful words.
  • (5) "Teeth" in the dream world are most often an archetypal image of the dreamer's sense of confidence and competence in the waking world. Dreaming that there is something amiss with my teeth usually points to insecurities about my ability to "get my teeth into it," or maybe I've "bitten off more than I can chew." Ironically, the very fact that you remember such a dream is a reliable indicator that the you, the dreamer, can deal creatively and transformatively with the problems that life presents. If this were not the case, you would not even have remembered the dream. All dreams (even nightmares!) come in the service of health and wholeness, and no dream ever came to anyone to say, "Nyah, nyah--you've got these problems and you can't do anything about them!" The more emotionally charged, or urgent the dream, the more likely that it points to a creative possibility previously hidden from the conscious mind, in response to a pressing waking life problem.
