  • The wife in a man's dream may be his own wife, with no symbolism at all.
  • Even so, bear in mind that the way you relate to your wife {in the dream or in reality} may contain elements of your relation with your mother or your anima.
  • Seeing a deceased wife is common. Try to feel her - and your love for her - within yourself, rather than as an external experience.

  • If the wind is moving dust or debris it may symbolize a possibility of, or a need for change in your lifestyle or self-image.

    Wise Old Man/Woman
  • A Wise Old Man figure may appear in a man's dream, a Wise Old Woman in a woman's dream. The Wise Old Man may take various forms; for example, old bearded man, guru, priest or prophet, king, magician, teacher, The Wise Old Woman may appear as Earth Mother, Great Goddess, Mother Church, priestess or prophetess, teacher. Attend to whatever this figure tells you in dreams: the result could be a transformation of your personality and your life, in tune with your true self.
  • Such figures Jung called 'mana' personalities. Mana denotes awesome, mysterious power associated with gods but also with natrural phenomena and extraordinary human skills, genuis, holines, psychic powers and supranormal knowledge. These figures may therefore be frightening. If you find them too frightening, consult a {Jungian} therapist. People may let themselves be 'possessed' - taken over - by the Wise Old Man/Woman and become insufferably domineering, self-important, opinionated. Alternately, failure to acknowledge the 'divine' wisdom and power within yourself may lead you to project it on to some authoritarian - but not necessarily authorittative - public figure, or guru, or personal aquaintance. Whatever such a ' mana figure says to you in a dream will be extremely important and will almost certainly open up a new dimension of life for you.
  • Should the Wise Old Woman appear in a man's dream or the Wise Old Man in a woman's dream, it may be the anima/animus that is being represented.

  • Witch - Witches are priestesses of Earth Mother and they are poularly seen as malevolent {wishing evil or harm to others}.This popular view, prepetuated by those children writers and teachers who know nothing of the history of witches, derives from the Christian persecution of witches as devil-worshipers, which in turn derived from Christian tendency to separate God from nature and to worship a transcendent {sky-} god rather than an indwelling {earth-}goddess. A witch in dreams may therefore repesent either the possibilities below.
  • An internal source of wisdom, healing and growth.
  • Alternatively, a witch may be a destructive unconscious force: for example, a repressed part of yourself. In a man's dream a witch may symbolize the negative aspect of the anima. Do you suffer from moodiness and a conviction that nothing can ever come right for you? This may be because you feel in some way let down by your mother. 'The character pf a man's anima is as a rule shaped by his mother'.

  • Wolf
  • A wolf may symbolize all that you are afraid of in yourself, particuarily what you see as 'animal', aggressive and destructive. Probably your fear is irrational and stems from a traumatic childhood experience. This 'werewolf' anxiety is a fairly common ingredient in literature. It is nearly always a consequence of repressed instinct, usually sexual.
  • In a woman's dream it may symbolize male sexuality seen as threatening. Perhaps the dreamer needs to come to terms with her own sexuality.
  • It may symbolize your unconscious, seen as something frightening.

  • Wood - Flexible, yet durable aspect of self; nurturing and growth. When part of a tree. represents aliveness that can be molded or shaped into a new form.
