Omens. Dreams. The. Future.

19 03 2012

The other night I had two really strange dreams. In the first one I dove into a pond and when I tried to walk out the shallow end turtles kept suctioning onto my leg. In the second I was at some overly crowded sporting event when an airplane crashed into the scoreboard blowing up and shooting out people.

I, of course, had to look up the meanings.

According to

To see a turtle in your dream symbolizes wisdom, faithfulness, longevity, and loyalty. It also suggests that you need to take it slow in some situation or relationship in your life. With time and patience, you will make steady progress. Alternatively, a turtle indicates that you are sheltering yourself from the realities of life. You are putting forth a hard exterior and not letting others in. As a result, you are feeling withdrawn.

To dream that you are being chased by a turtle indicates that you are hiding behind a facade, instead of confronting the things that are bothering you.


“To dream that a plane crashes signifies that you have set overly high and unrealistic goals for yourself. You are in danger of having those goals come crashing down. Alternatively, the crashing airplane represents your lack of confidence, self-defeating attitude and self-doubt. You do not believe in your own ability to achieve those goals. Loss of power and uncertainty in achieving your goals are also signified.”

Since the turtles were attaching to me more than chasing me does that mean my facade is crumbling? Does it mean that my hard exterior is getting softer, not by my own choosing but by my surroundings? Could it mean that whatever I am avoiding with naturally becoming unavoidable very soon? I am sure there are a number of things I’m avoiding but those are things I am not even consciously aware of right now because I’m so good at avoiding them.

And the plane crash. If that isn’t a depressing interpretation I don’t know what is. I’m losing confidence in my goals aka my dreams are dying. My day dreams anyway. Does this mean Jake Gyllenhaal and I are never going to hook up? No dreams, don’t die!!!

I guess it’s two big signs that it’s about time I really figure out my life. Do people ever actually figure out their lives?

Slowly and surely.
