This is my blog where I describe a dream, interpret the elements of the dream and then give a dream interpretation. Each element of the dream is a symbol for something and the interpretation sets the dream in context.
In this weeks dream, the dreamer is driving a vintage car, when one of the wheels gets stuck in a manhole. The children are in the back of the car and the dreamer attempts to get some people to help. No-one offers so the dreamer goes into a department store to ask for help. He sees the manager of the shoe department and wants to tell her what has happened. This lady is shouting at her staff and she keeps firing people, she is only interested in sales. The dreamer decides not to ask her for help and leaves with the family.
The dreamer decides to go back to the swamp where people treat each other better and are not rude. The dreamer values people, this manager only values money.
What does this dream mean?
Dream meaning car: A car is the means by which we may progress through life, it is the vehicle to travel down life's roads where we make choices about the life that we want.
Dream meaning vintage car: A vintage car in a dream suggests that the person driving the car likes to look classy and different. They have a unique way of moving through life, they value the traditional way of doing things.
Dream meaning manhole: a manhole is a place in the road where the drains are accessible. Drains move all the household water, the rains and sewage away. A manhole is a useful and practical thing so it would mean that the basic hygiene is being taken care of. It is not a pleasant place to get stuck, dreaming about being stuck in a manhole would mean that you are stuck in an unpleasant and toxic environment.
Dream meaning department store: a clean and pleasant department store would show that you are in a place where you are able to purchase a wide range of things. Everything that you need in the way of personal adornment or entertainment is readily available. If you cannot afford the products in the department store then you are not able to achieve all of the personal things that you desire - the meaning will depend on how you feel about this in your dream. To dream of being in a department store where people are treated badly shows a disillusionment with this material place.
Dream meaning manager: a manager is someone who is tasked with motivating and organising individuals to be productive for an organisation. The meaning will depend on your relationship with the manager. A good manager shows you having the support and encouragement that you need to be a better employee. An angry manager shows that you are not getting the support needed and people around you do not respect the efforts that you are making - you either need to do better or get away from an unpleasant situation. If you dreamed of being a manager and it was a pleasant experience, you are encouraged to take on more responsibility and to use your powers to help others. To dream of being a poor manager is a warning that you are not ready to encourage and motivate others, you should take care of your own issues first. To see a manager firing employees would mean that those in positions of responsibility around you do not respect the needs of their subordinates.
Dream meaning swamp: To dream about a swamp implies a going back to nature, being in an ancient environment which has not changed in thousands of years. To be surrounded by nature. The exact meaning depends on the dreamer's reactions to the environment -to enjoy the swamp means that the dreamer is comfortable with nature, the natural world and comfortable with themselves. To be scared in the swamp depicts someone who has less confidence and a fear of the natural environment someone who may be happy in a man-made environment where nature is controlled.
Our dreamer drives a vintage car so we know that this person likes tradition and thinks carefully about the way they travel through life. The journey is important not the speed at which life moves. The car gets stuck in a manhole a place in the town where all the sewage seeps away so the journey turns unpleasant and the dreamer needs to escape. The dreamer is also trying to protect their children and they ask the people around for help. No-one will help out, the dreamer is not the same as the people in the town, they have a vintage car and the people of the town are not willing to help someone who is different.
In desperation the dreamer goes into a department store for help, the manager there is rude and is only concerned with money and sales and does not even talk to the dreamer. The manager is firing employees so the dreamer sees that this person has no interest in helping anyone, even their own employees.
The dreamer decides to move back to the swamp, meaning that they are not comfortable in the town where people are rude. The people in the swamp live closer to nature and are less concerned with appearances and money. they help each other because that is what you do.
This dreamer is feeling alienated in their current environment, they realise that they may look different and have different values to those around them and they would like to go back to their former place where they felt supported and at home. A place that was better for them and for the children.

I started reading tarot cards many years ago when I was in college, I was studying business but my real interest has always been in psychology, astrology, tarot and dreams. I waited a long time to pursue tarot reading professionally. I do not understand how tarot cards work or why they work. I do not believe that you need special powers to read the cards but experience, intuition and an understanding of the symbols on each card opens the doors to a successful interpretation.
It is a good idea to be in a quiet place to have a tarot reading, to be able to free your mind of distractions and concentrate on an issue that you would like some insight into. Tarot cards can give you insight into situations and things that are happening in your life.
I have been a tarot reader for more than 30 years and will be happy to do a reading for you, the cost is $15 for one question via email using a 3 card spread or $50 per hour for a face to face reading on WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger. Many types of readings available.

I started interpreting dreams when I was a teenager. I always had very detailed dreams and would recount them to my friends. A boyfriend bought me a dream dictionary and I started to delve into interpretation. Unfortunately, I found that many dreams had elements that were contradictory and so I did not get a good understanding of my dream by just using a dictionary.
I realised that different people have different relationships with dream symbols based on experience, their daily lives and culture. A person who keeps snakes will have a different interpretation of a snake dream to a person who has a fear of snakes.
Dreams may have symbols that are good omens or bad omens, understanding the context of the omens will help you to interpret their true meaning for you.
My blog is a series of dreams and interpretations of the elements in each dream to help you to understand how best to interpret your dreams, I am also available to interpret a dream for you.
