Type of Dreams and Horoscope Signs
Aries: Lucid Dreams
Lucid dreams occur when you realize you are dreaming. Most dreamers wake themselves up once they realize that they are dreaming. Other dreamers have cultivated the skill to remain in the lucid state of dreaming. They become an active participant in their own dreams, making decisions in their dreams and influencing the dream’s outcome without awakening. Lucid dreams give you the ability to control your own dreams and steer them toward the direction you want. In the lucid state, you are more willing to confront threats and as a result, become more self confident. When you achieve lucidity, you can use it as a tool to improve your sports game, to rehearse for a speech, to fulfill your fantasies, or to solve a problem in your waking life.
When the moon is in Aries, dreams may be about new beginnings, new rules, new limits to test, or new understandings of old ideas. Aries dreams reveal the dreamer’s new relationship to ancient cycles. The “mascot” of Aries is the ram — he who bangs his head. Aries dreams, therefore, may be about the head: headaches, new ways of thinking, or a new focus.
You don’t need to get ready or get set. You just go, Aries! Use that initiative to penetrate the mysteries of your dream life. Lucid dreams — dreams in which you take conscious control in the dream — are your natural stock in trade. As you go to sleep, affirm that you will actively choose how to participate in your dreams. Confronting a scary dream character or situation will help you to face fears in your daily life.
Taurus: Progressive Dreams
Progressive dreams occur when you have a sequence of dreams that continue over a period of nights. The dream continues where you left off the previous night. Such dreams are problem-solving dreams and help to explore different options and various approaches to a problem, situation or relationship. Having a progressive dream suggests that you are going through indecision in your waking life.Naturally practical, you want to find good uses for your dreams. No problem. As you begin to record your dreams, you will find consistent themes running through them. Among the dependable characters and images you also find unusual factors that capture your interest. Pay attention to unusual characters, symbols, or actions in your dreams, and be sure to record any physical sensations you have upon awakening from the dream. Taurus dreams might also involve different kinds of nurturing: caretaking, tending, cooking, gardening, and land loving. The Taurus mascot is the bull. Taurus rarely takes no for an answer! So, Taurus dreams may include a certain bullish, determined, sturdy, and enduring energy, and the dreams may be about accomplishment against odds. Taurus also governs the throat, so some dreams may refer to singing or speaking — using voice to bring beauty to the planet.
Gemini: False Awakening Dreams
A false awakening is a vivid and convincing dream about awakening from sleep, while the dreamer in reality continues to sleep. After a false awakening, subjects often dream they are performing daily morning rituals such as cooking, cleaning and eating. A subset of false awakenings, namely those in which one dreams that one has awoken from sleep that featured dreams, take on aspects of a double dream or a dream within a dream. Having a dream within a dream suggests high self awareness between your dream self and your conscious self.Alert and generally open-minded, your approach to understanding your dreams includes the assumption that most dreams have a friendly quality. Even difficult dreams provide answers to questions that come up during the day. You may be impatient to understand your dreams, or you may only spend a moment or two thinking about a dream when you wake. With a little experience, you will become quite the story teller as you record your lively dreams.
Cancer: Mutual Dreams,Gemini dreams may illuminate the principle of reciprocity: giving and receiving energy, the metaphorical breath. Geminis love to learn. They appreciate ideas for their own sake, and they are good at acquiring knowledge. The moon may send information to a dreamer at this time. Library dreams and school dreams (“Oh, no, I forgot to study for the test!”) may occur when the moon is in Gemini.
Mutual dreams are described as such when two people have the same dream. Mutual dreams may be planned, meaning that two people actively work toward achieving one dream scenario or goal. It is a way to improve communication and build trust. Mutual dreams can also be spontaneous. You find out that a friend, a significant other, faraway relative, or someone has had the same dream on the same night as you. Not much study has gone into the phenomenon of mutual dreams, but there is a very strong bond that exist between these two people.Because you tend to go with the flow of life, you often seem to know what is coming up without having to think about it much. When the flow meets an obstacle, your dreams can become a valuable guide. You suddenly note that the action of your dreams is more compelling than the content. You will recall the feelings you had in your dreams with greater ease when you add dreams to your journal on a regular basis.Each month when the moon is in Cancer, dreams may bring forth the dreamer’s personal relationship with the light and dark cosmic dance. Cancer is the home of the moon, and it is the most feminine of the signs. Often, dreams of the mother/child dynamic will come when the moon is in Cancer. Cancer governs the womb (the dreaming organ), the ovaries, and the breasts. Regeneration and procreation may be Cancerian dream themes. Natural cycles, changing tides, changing emotions (inner tides), and water sports may be other Cancer dreams.
Leo: Epic Dreams
Epic dreams (also referred to as Great Dreams, Cosmic Dreams or Numinous Dreams) are so huge, so compelling, and so vivid that you cannot ignore them. The details of such dreams remain with you for years, as if you just dream it last night. These dreams possess much beauty and contain many archetypal symbols. When you wake up from such a dream, you feel that you have discovered something profound or amazing about yourself or about the world. It feels like a life-changing experience.You have a powerful decision-making process that provides a comfort level as you attend to work, family or recreational matters. But sometimes you are not certain what to do. Your dreams offer valuable messages from your inner self and suggest options. Persistent characters that appear in many dreams are trying to steer you in a certain direction. While you’re awake take time to meditate and dialogue with the people or animals in your dreams to clarify their messages.Theater dreams and party dreams are most likely to occur when the moon is in Leo. The ruler of Leo is the sun, the heart chakra. As a result, dreams of one’s true nature, one’s innocent lust for life, come at this time. Running off to join the circus is an example of a Leo dream. The lion is Leo’s symbol — king of the jungle and king of great hair! Often hair dreams and dreams of intelligence occur when the moon is in Leo. Dreams that involve actual lions also have a tendency to come when the moon aspects Leo.
Virgo: Healing Dreams
Healing dreams serve as messages for the dreamer in regards to their health. The Ancient Greeks called these dreams “prodromic”. Many dream experts believe that dreams can help in avoiding potential health problems and healing when you are ill or when you are grieving. Research shows that asthma and migraine sufferers have certain types of dreams before an attack. Your bodies are able to communicate to your mind through dreams. The dreams can “tell” you that something is not quite right with your bodies even before any physical symptoms show up. Dreams of this nature may be telling the dreamer that he or she needs to go to the dentist or doctor. If you can understand the language of dreams, your dreams will serve as an invaluable early warning system. They can help inform, advise and heal.Animal dreams can provide vivid symbols that synchronize with your intuition. Although you focus on details and logic when awake, in your dreams you sometimes experience a bewildering “forest” of bizarre characters and images. This is your psyche speaking to you in the metaphorical language of dreams. Don’t expect to sort dreams using logic alone. Sometimes dream insights don’t correlate to facts until much later, yet your dream images have the compelling ring of truth.Dreams of getting affairs and objects in order may come when the moon is in Virgo. Virgo has very high standards and pays great attention to detail. One might have researcher dreams, scientist dreams, analysis dreams, or critical dreams at this time. Virgo rules the intestines and the pancreas, so Virgo dreams may be about body issues. One may have dreams about breaking down and assimilating food and/or information. Virgo is also a great healing sign, so the dreamer may either receive or be taught a healing technique in Virgo dream time.
Libra: Idealistic Dreams
Idealistic dreams are goals or fantasies set in a waking and conscious mind. These types of dreams can be both realistic or far fetched from a fantasized romance to a goal for self improvement. If your vision of the world is idealistic, you tend to believe all issues can be overcome, and that all people can live to their full potential. Having idealistic dreams suggests a high level of motivation and/or imagination. People who often have idealistic dreams tend to be more optimistic and hopeful.Change is not your favorite experience. Emotionally you like things to run on an even keel, and change upsets that easy rhythm. Dreams provide healing messages that carry you through difficult periods of turmoil. They may give you intuitive insight into healing methods, or they help you to maximize any healing technique you use by bringing healing power to the site of a problem in your body or mind. Trusting your dreams means paying attention, recording dreams, and noticing how they affect your waking experience.When the moon is in Libra, dreams may be difficult. Libra dreams may point toward unbalanced energies. They may be a road map for necessary journeys into the underworld, into the “winter” of the soul. Libra is also the sign of justice and diplomacy, so Libra dreams may inspire the dreamer to take civil action and demand justice. Libra also governs the kidneys. A Libra dream may alert one about abnormal kidney function, or the dream may point out a need for a more proper energy flow within the dreamer’s life.
A nightmare is a disturbing dream that causes you to wake up feeling anxious and frightened. Nightmares may be a response to real life trauma and situations. The distinction of a nightmare is its frightening and/or emotional content. You tend to wake up in fear in the midst of a nightmare. Because of its frightening nature, you are more likely to remember your nightmares and the vivid details. They have a bigger impact upon your waking mind. Its images stay with you throughout the day. However, often times nightmares stem from a deeper level indicating that something is troubling you from within your subconscious. A nightmare can also symbolize your unrevealed dark side. Some studies show that people who are more sensitive, intuitive, creative, or imaginative are more prone to have nightmares. This may be because they are more empathetic and more in tune with their surroundings.Change is not your favorite experience.

Trusting your dreams means paying attention, recording dreams, and noticing how they affect your waking experience.Transformation, death, and rebirth are the anchor points of Scorpio. These words may scare some people. Dreamers, however, know that death in a dream marks a profound and exciting transformation. “Deconstruct and reconstruct” could be the motto of Scorpio. Dreams of giving birth, shedding skin (snake dreams), death, or profound change may come when the moon is in Scorpio. Scorpio is the sign of shrewd intelligence and deep insight, so dreams that come at this time may allow the dreamer to see beneath the surface. Scorpio also governs the nose.
Sagittarius: Recurring Dreams
Recurring dreams repeat themselves with little variation in story or theme. Recurring dreams are quite common and are often triggered by a certain life situation, transitional phase in life or a problem that keeps coming back again and again. These dreams may recur daily, once a week, or once a month. Whatever the frequency, there is little variation in the dream content itself. Such dreams may be highlighting a personal weakness, fear, or your inability to cope with something in your life – past or present. The repetitive patterns in your dream reveal some of the most valuable information about yourself. It may point to a conflict, situation or matter in your waking life that remains unresolved or unsettled. Some urgent underlying message in your unconscious is demanding to be understood.The conservative nature you often project during the day bears little resemblance to your sleeping life! Dreams of epic proportions populate your nights. Honor these dreams by recording them. Share them with people you trust. Use images that come through dreams to enhance your work or home environment. Recurring dream images help to clarify the meaning of elaborate stories produced and directed by your dream ego.Sagittarius dreams may involve religious ceremonies, spiritual experiences, and scientific testing. Sagittarius governs the blood. Dreams may refer to the sense of inner peace invoked by proper blood flow. Sagittarius also governs the thighs, so dreams of strength and power may come at this time. Dreams of magnificent sports feats are not unusual when the moon is in Sag.
Capricorn: Signal Dreams
Signal dreams are centered around problem solving. They are the result of your brain continuing to think about an issue even after you’re asleep. Signal dreams can help or bring conclusion and solution to real life matters. Having a signal dream suggests that you are experiencing worry in real life that are brought into your dream world to confront. There are many cases of signal dreams where the dreamer succeeds in solving real life issues, or continues their work through their dreams. Signal dreams can also lead to discoveries that are logical to the context of your life.The conservative nature you often project during the day bears little resemblance to your sleeping life!

Recurring dream images help to clarify the meaning of elaborate stories produced and directed by your dream ego.Capricorn dreams may be authoritarian and depict power over, as well as service to, nature. Capricorn rules the bones — the framework of the body. Because we download information into our bones, dreams when the moon is in Capricorn may evoke memory stored in our bones. Similarly, Mother Earth downloads information into her skeletal system — the minerals. Capricorn dreams may be crystal or stone dreams. They may call up some deep information or visualize the beauty of the mineral world. Capricorn also rules the knees. As a result, Capricorn dreams may be humbling and remind us to serve others.
Aquarius: Prophetic Dreams
Prophetic dreams, also referred to as precognitive or psychic dreams, are dreams that seemingly foretell the future. One rational theory to explain this phenomenon is that your dreaming mind is able to piece together bits of information and observation that you may normally overlook or that you do not seriously consider. Prophetic dreams are linked to major disasters, wars, assassinations, accidents, lottery numbers or even with winning horse race. There are so many other dreams that do not come true. Thus, prophetic dream may just be mere coincidences. Having a prophetic dream suggests that you are experiencing anxiety and that you are expressing a desire for certainty in the future. You are looking to your dream to help you make an important decision or to reassure you that you are on the right path.Where dreams are concerned, you have a remarkable talent for producing metaphysical characters and stories. Dreams support your intuitive processes by offering exotic ideas and symbols for your consideration when you wake up. As you pay attention, you find that your dreams often include spotlighted images, characters, or settings that cue your thinking when you awaken. You may experience sleep disturbances as your intuition develops. If this happens get in the habit of walking in the evening after supper.Dreams with the moon in Aquarius may be telepathic. They may allow the dreamer to perceive information from the collective consciousness. Aquarius dreams may inspire the dreamer toward social action. in addition, according to traditional astrology, Aquarius is an air sign. Dreams may depict certain properties of “air wave” communication, or they may involve air travel or wind. Tornado and tidal-wave dreams may come during an Aquarius moon.
Daydreaming occurs when you are semi-awake. It is the spontaneous imagining or recalling of various images or experiences in the past or future. You allow your imagination to run away from you. When you daydream, you are accessing your right brain, which is the creative and feminine side of your personality. Daydreams are often viewed as light-hearted in nature. They are just silly fantasies and wishful thinking. It serves as a temporary escape from the demands of reality. It is also a good way to release pent up frustrations without physically acting them out.Spiritual or mystical dream elements provide you with an intuitive window on the future. Pay close attention to unusual or recurring symbols in your dreams, as they provide the information you need and inspire confidence to let go of issues from your past that no longer have significance in your life. When a dream offers an unusual symbol, research it on the Internet or at the library to understand its archetypal nature more fully.Pisces dreams can be of solitude, talking and breathing under water, deep secrecy, sacrifice, or running away. The Piscean Age, from which we now pass, was the age of great devotion to religion and organization. As a result, Pisces dreams may also reflect piety and unbending loyalty to a cause or a person.
As the moon moves from sign to sign during a month, she may, for a few hours, be outside the direct influence of any sign. (Those constellations are far apart!) When the moon is between signs, she is said to be void of course. If you have a dream during that time, it will often be a dream of very profound quality. Usually, when the moon is void of course, nothing much happens. Women have been known to stop labor, wait for the moon to move into a new sign, and start again. If a dream comes when the moon is void of course, it is important.
