Horoscope

Posted By admin on June 30th, 2009

http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/06/horoscope/

Horoscopes are predictions of our future based on the positions of planets in relation to other astrological manifestations. It is a Greek word meaning “a look at the hours” while in Latin, it means “observer of the hour”. When used in astrology, it pertains to the chart or diagram which represents the position of astrological bodies. On the other hand, due to the nature of which it is used, the term horoscope now refers to as the astrologers’ prediction itself.

The most common form of horoscope we know today is the one which relies on the sun’s placement in accordance to one’s birthdate. Through which, the astrologer’s predictions are generally based on “star signs” for a certain group of people, or at least the closest estimation of which. In general, there are twelve sets which people are grouped together according to their birthdates. These twelve sets correspond to the twelve Zodiac signs we’re all familiar of. Naturally, every person belongs to one sign but there are some who were born in between signs hence they are considered in cusp. When you’re in a cusp, you enjoy a little bit of both signs or so it seems.

Colors in Dreams

Posted By admin on June 25th, 2009

http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/06/colors-in-dreams/

Some people think that they dream in black and white.  While it may be true that people only remember their black and white dreams, we actually dream in color.  Dreams are sometimes likened to motion pictures where there are more memorable parts than the rest.  Here are a few common interpretations about colors in our dreams.

Black typically represents mystery, the unknown, uncertainty, death hate or malice.  However if you feel happy while dreaming about the color black then this may come to mean some happiness after a lot of grief or triumph after some trials.  Black is also usually associated with depression or sadness.

Some Dream Tidbit

Posted By admin on June 22nd, 2009

http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/06/some-dream-tidbit/

People have always been fascinated with dreams.  In fact during the Roman Era, dreams of the senators were submitted on to the senate for interpretation!  Some people say that dreams are our connection to the other side.  Even popular psychologists like Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung are convinced that dreams are interesting and are a road map as to how our psyche works.  Dreams are interesting indeed.  So here are a few fun and interesting dream tidbits that you may find useful.

1.    Everybody dreams!  Even if you do not remember the dream when you wake up.  A lack of dreams can be a problem since it may signal a protein deficiency or a personality disorder.
2.    Statistics show that 1/3 of your life is spent sleeping and in an average lifetime, your dreams will total to 6 years when added together!  This means that you will spend 2100 days in another dimension or realm.
3.    In a night, we dream for an average of up to 2 hours with 4-7 different dreams.
4.    Even blind people dream.  Whether or not they actually see something in their dreams are determined whether thy were born blind or became blind later in life.  However, blind people can dream about sensation, sounds and even smell as dreams constitutes not only the vision.
5.    Studies have shown that our brain waves are more active during REM sleep than when we are awake.  People who wake up suddenly during a REM sleep tend to recall their dreams more vividly than those who sleep through the night.
6.    50% of dreams are lost after 5 minutes of waking up and 90% after 10 minutes, which is probably why most of us forget our dreams right away.
7.    Men tend to dream about other men most of the time while women dream about other women and men equally.
8.    Research has shown that most men experience erections during their sleep while women also show an increase in blood flow to the vagina, whether dreams are erotic or not.  This means that “wet dreams” may not be directly related to overly sexual content.
9.    Toddlers do not dream about themselves.  They start appearing in their dreams at about 3-4 years old.  Nightmares also occur more frequently during childhood, usually at around 3 years old till 8.
10.    Smokers who are quitting tend to have more intense and vivid dreams.  And people do not dream while they snore.

Dream Interpretation-Fire

Posted By admin on June 17th, 2009

http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/06/dream-interpretation-fire/

Fire has always had mystical meanings even in the olden days.  Fire can burn but it also symbolizes rebirth.  It can give but also take life.  Fire can represent the burning desires within us but it can also become bad omens.

There are several dream symbolisms when you dream about fire.  First of all observe the nature of the fire in your dream.  For example a bonfire can mean good news and security.  It also means a period of abundance after a period of strife.  It means that you are comfortable with your current standing and at ease with your life.

Demons

Posted By admin on June 8th, 2009

http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/06/demons/

Demons are the exact opposite of angels and they are usually present in religion, folklore and mythology. They are supernatural beings and they are generally described as deceiving, malevolent spirits.

In Greek mythology, demons are used and applied referring to a God or Goddess but generally, it was referred to as a force or spirit that comes between gods and human. Overtime, it gathered negative connotations and therefore settled to becoming associated with devils and the likes. Both demons and devils are considered as evil spirits and fallen angels of God and they are usually mistaken for one another although they are quite different in meaning and definition.

Hieroglyphics

Posted By admin on June 2nd, 2009

http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/06/hieroglyphics/

Hieroglyphics or hieroglyphs are graphical characters made to symbolize animals or objects during those times when the universal language is yet to be developed. Some even considered hieroglyphics as the earliest form of art. These ancient writings are priceless and treasured since a set of hieroglyphics tells stories of ancient times allowing us to experience and catch a small glimpse of it. Hieroglyphs were used under different eras and by various civilizations such as Sumerian and Babylonians.

Ancient Egyptians are well-known for their extensive collection of hieroglyphs. These are the ones you will remember when you say hieroglyphics although there have been many types in existence. Apparently, ancient Egyptians chart every phenomenon and occurrences made during their time. These are documentations that are very important in their society during those times; these are considered as sacred writings so no one even dared messing them up back then. Hieroglyphs were written in stones, cloths, and wood. There have been attempts of deciphering these inscriptions but only few succeeded in doing so.
