There is so much wisdom and guidance within you - if you know how to listen.
Our feelings, our emotions, our dis-ease and aches and pains. The little synchronicities, the gut yesses and no's. The sudden flashes of insight and ideas that lead you to exactly what you needed.
Even our dreams.
Being professionally trained in hypnotherapy, I am very familiar with the subconscious mind and how it works. It speaks to us in imagery, in metaphor.
So when I woke up this morning after dreaming all night that I couldn't move because there was a 12" long giant black scorpion (that was hefty) asleep draped across the top of my head spanning from ear to ear, you can bet I was intrigued.
Interestingly enough, eventually it stirred and I felt it crawl slowly off my head and slide off and as soon as that happened, I immediately woke up.
"....when I woke up this morning after dreaming ...there was a 12" long giant black scorpion...draped across the top of my head..., you can bet I was intrigued."
The first thing to take into account when analyzing a dream is the feeling that came with it. In this case, it was intense - I couldn't move for fear of being stung, and couldn't speak loudly, and it was a heavy weight, so my neck and shoulders were burdened. And I kept trying to get people around to help but no one knew what to do.
But it was asleep (over my crown chakra). And I could feel this strong vibrational pulsing energy emanating from it.
And then it just moved on, on its own. Suddenly I was free.
There was no actual threat or attack. No sting. Just a giant scorpion asleep on my head that finally went on its way.
Scorpions are associated with healing, transformation, death and rebirth. They are protective and extremely vibrationally sensitive. In many cultures, black is a protective color.
In the dream there was a definite "weight being lifted" sensation - in fact I woke immediately.
Also, astrologically right now, the south node of past, karma, and release is in the sign of the scorpion, Scorpio.
The Egyptian goddess Isis is strongly associated with scorpions. In the myth of Isis and Osiris, at one point she travels with seven scorpions for protection.
She is associated with healing - most famous for re-membering her beloved Osiris - and with magic, as is zodiac sign Scorpio, and the associated 8th house that isn't just themes of shared resources and other peoples' money, but also the deep psyche, the taboo, sex, death, loss, inheritance, and the occult.
The 8th house being Scorpio's house (the 8th sign) means its modern ruler is Pluto. As a Cancer rising, guess who just happens to be landing in my Aquarius 8th house in late March? You got it - Pluto - the scorpion is of course about power too.
Interesting that it was covering my crown chakra and even while dreaming the pulsing energy I felt was palpable.
Maybe this is a sign of releasing the past and clearing in preparation for the new coming in March.
Maybe it is a metaphor for major healing.
Maybe it is a sign of a period of major transformation coming to culmination.
Maybe it is all of the above. Time will tell.
Whatever the meaning, it was significant. That's for sure.
What are your thoughts? Have you ever had dreamt of a scorpion? What is your experience with dreams? I'd love to know!
