Other people‚Äôs dreams are never interesting‚Ä¶except when they‚Äôre about sex. Each week, our dream analyst¬†Lauri Loewenberg¬†tells one lucky reader what their dirty dream means. Got a dream you want Lauri to analyze?¬†Click here to submit it¬†(18 and older only, please).¬†This week, a reader asks Lauri:
I had the strangest dream where I married my best friend’s sister and then got her pregnant. This is already strange, but what doesn’t make sense is my best friend doesn’t have a sister, he’s an only child. It also couldn’t be a cousin of his, because his girl cousins are all older or younger than me by a lot. The girl in the dream was my age and she didn’t look like anybody I recognized. I don’t remember what her name was, but it doesn’t seem like it was the name of somebody I know. What does this all mean?
Lauri:¬†You are trying to connect the woman in your dream to an actual, real life woman and are looking at your dream literally rather than symbolically, which is why you can’t make sense of it. The woman in your dream is symbolic of YOU! Your dream is giving us clues as to what part of you she represents.
First of all, she is female, which means she is either your caring, nurturing self, or she is your creative self. These qualities are typically considered female energy or yin energy… the softer side of an individual.
She is also your best friend’s sister, which means she is probably a part of yourself that you like, the part of you that is a helpful friend to yourself rather than the part of you that is too hard on yourself or holds yourself back.
And finally, you married and impregnated her. This tells us she is the part of you that has committed to something recently and a part of you that is productive, the part of you that can “give birth” to new ideas, projects, etc. With all this in mind, what is in the works right now in your life? This dream is telling you to stick with it, as new things are around the corner for you!
