They are animals of great beauty and they inspire passionate emotions. They are also unpredictable and excitable and this can result in accidents. Having understood this we can see why dreams in our study may have occurred when we were thinking about something very passionate or exciting.

QUESTIONS to help you make associations(pick the one that makes most sense to you)
- Is life much more exciting right now?
- Did something unpredictable happen the day before the dream? Something that could easily have occurred in a different way?
- Do you wish life was more exciting?
- Was your mind focused on the day to come and some major challenge that was about to happen?

KEY WORDS : Exciting, passionate, exhilarating, reckless, unpredictable(write down some quotes that capture your key feelings on issues that have been dominating your mind. Then see if any of these words could appear in those quotes)

KEY PHRASES(Pick a quote which captures your feelings right now. Think especially of the day before the dream) :
- "taking a chance"
- "be more careful"
- "more exhilarating"
- "very passionate"
- "exciting"
- "anything can happen"
- "I have been thinking about an upcoming event and really anything can happen"

Below you will see a series of quotes. Each quote represents the meaning of a particular dream(these are all dreams where the meaning is understood totally). For instance one dream may have meant that the dreamer was having trouble at work. In that case the quote may simply be "There is a bad atmosphere at work". Some information is included about which dream symbols were included in the dream(within the squares brackets). Often a sample dream is included which shows you how the dream interpretation was reached.
ESSAY : What is the symbolic meaning of horses in dreams?

Horses are swift elegant creatures often linked to romance and excitement. Those are good clues to their symbolic meanings. Its true that horses can link to excitement and passions. But one feature of horses is the difficulty with controlling them. If that is a feature of the dream then maybe it links to something that can easily get out of control. Often battles in history were lost by cavalry charges were horses turned and charged into their own troops causing utter chaos and defeat.

Often horse dreams can be linked to excitement and upcoming events which will test us. E.g.

"Its nerve wracking waiting for the big day. It could easily go so wrong."[Dream symbol - Horse rears]

Sometimes horses can link to someones passion on an issue. E.g.

"I am trying to calm her down. She is so PASSIONATE and OUT OF CONTROL. She may easily turn her anger towards me"[Dream Dictionary - point gun at horse]

Horses can be connected with our general lives and our ability to meet a challenge and take risks. E.g.

"I need to take go head on into life and TAKE RISKS. So it could easily go wrong. Life is short."[Dream Dictionary - Horse jumps]

"Perhaps I need to slow down and BE MORE CAREFUL. Things could easily go wrong. "[Dream Dictionary - Horse jumps]

"But I was heading straight for disaster. I was in a constant depression. I needed to TAKE A CHANCE or I would have ended up in a rut. I just needed to do something to BREAK OUT of that state of mind"[Dream Dictionary - horse riding]

"I know that when I start my new job life will be MORE EXCITING" [Dream Dictionary - horse]

"I know I need to slow down and be less hedonistic. It would make life so much more satisfying. I tend to exhaust myself living life at such a fast pace. I have made a real attempt to control myself recently " [Dream Dictionary - horse being put down with dignity]
SAMPLE DREAM : Dreams generally link to some real issue of relevance to you right now. They may capture your feelings on some health issue, work problem , relationship in difficulty , your feelings about how things are generally going, your plans for the day ahead or some simple paranoia or fear. The dreams featured in this website will try to reduce the dreams meaning to a quote which captures your current feelings on some issue. When studying your own dreams try to think what quotes could capture your own feelings on pressing issues. Think especially of the day before the dream and your thoughts about the day to come.
THE DREAM - I am somewhere near the bottom of Jacobs mount. The biggest hill in my home town. There is someone telling me that there is nothing left of the old town - its like some small town American place in the outback. There is nothing left of the brothel. I am shown that all that is left is - I look in and hear the sound of a newly born baby. There also appear to be horses there.

Then I am near home. Some family is moving out. They have a very large wardrobe ready to be moved onto the removal truck. They have a removal truck the size of a superstore delivery truck.

THE REALITY The dreamer was going through some life changes. He was just about to start a new job. Previous to that he had been in somewhat of a rut.

DREAM ANALYSIS New born babies often symbolise new and fresh circumstances freshly born into your life. So the connection with the new job was obvious. The dream is also associated with horse(symbols of passions). That showed the passion with which the dreamer was approaching the new circumstances.

The Mount in the dream could have symbolised some tough circumstances ahead. He would have some difficult times ahead but it was something he was looking forward to.

The brothel was maybe a symbol of some of his bad habits previously. He was getting into a rut. The old town represented his old involvements in life and old ways of thinking.

The removals were a clear sign of change. This dream represented the movement to a new situation.

Symbolic Meanings
BABY : "an exciting new job being born into the dreamers life"
BROTHEL : "the bad habits that the dreamer had been getting into"
HILL : "difficult times behind the dreamer - a tough challenge ahead"
HORSE : "greater excitement and exhilaration"
MOVING : "a transformation in your circumstances or emotions"
SMALL TOWN : "having a small-town mind - not prepared to take on big challenges"
WARDROBE : "how you want to appear to people"

DREAM MEANING The dream has captured the following feeling within the dreamer - "This new job will be good for me. I have got into some bad habits recently and a new challenge will make my life much more exciting".
