Tell Me Your Wildest Dreams!
Every Wednesday I venture away from romantic/erotic fiction writing to interpret your dreams. Have a recurring or puzzling dream? Send it to and I'll try to shed some light on Wild Dreams Wednesday!

This Week's Wildest Dream:

“I was in a parking lot with a lot of cats, and a newspaper stand. I could hear a puppy whining, but couldn't see it."

On the surface this would sound like someone trying to decide what kind of pet to buy! But underneath lies some compelling symbolism.

Newspapers in a dream mean new information is available regarding a problem. Pay attention to the rest of the dream to get the answer you need. Great! Let's see what else we've got.

First, the cats. Cats in dream life represent feminine energy, creativity, and sexual power. They can also indicate some type of misfortune. If the cats are behaving aggressively or barring your progress, this could indicate female influences in your life that have less than genuine, helpful motives toward you.

Parking lots indicate you are in a place where you need to stop and take a moment to rest between activities. You've got too much going on right now and need a breather.

Puppies refer to our carefree, playful natures or childlike times. They can also indicate friendships. The fact that this puppy can not be seen and is unhappy could refer to feelings that carefree times or friendships are being lost.

To put this all together, it sounds like the dreamer has been facing a lot of challenges in life, ones perhaps being thwarted by other females. This is taking up enough time to interfere with friendships or other carefree pursuits, and causing a lot of stress. Your mind is advising you to take a break, relax, and nurture carefree pursuits before getting back into the "cat race." Good luck!

I don't remember my dreams anymore. I used to, but I don't now. Perhaps I sleep like a log or too deeply - or perhaps too lightly to get into REM. Anywho, it's interesting reading about other people's dreams.

A lot of people have this same complaint. I go through phases of this, too. When you're seeking answers to waking problems, it can be worth keeping a notebook at bedside and recording any snippets you can think of as soon as you wake up. Sometimes the answers do lie in our dreams.

What about Sigourney Weaver with a four foot strap on! That's what woke me up shaking last night. Horrible! I wish i dreamt about kittens!

The worst part of my dreams are reoccuring, if I ever have to use a telephone in my dream I can't. It's broken, I press the wrong buttons, I can't find the number I need, I don't have the money, we get cut off, I dial the wrong number - it's infuriating. It's got to the stage where - if I have to make a call - I think "oh god, this is a dream isn't it? It'll never work" I would imagine it's something to do with communication which is galling for an author! :D

ROTFL! I'm sure Sigourney would wonder about that dream, too!

Telephone dreams are pretty much so I do believe we've got our next segment! Stay tuned for more on busted phones.
