Empowered exploration of your inner world through therapeutic astrology and dreamwork.

wooden elephant


wooden elephantDREAM
I dreamt in black and white that I found a tiny baby elephant, only the size of a small cat.  I really wanted it. The elephant needed care and we ended up falling asleep together. When I woke up, the elephant was wooden with its trunk raised. I was upset because I felt I had killed it. 

You see something that you desire and you seek to possess it. Although the elephant needs care, it isn’t compassion that motivates you to help it. You want to ‘own’ the elephant.

The dream imagery of the small wooden creature reminds me of the tale of Pinocchio, the wooden boy most whose nose grows when he lies. Not that you are telling lies – Pinocchio learnt many other lessons ­­– but I feel there is a blind spot, a lack of self awareness.

The primary message of this dream is to be aware of your true motives.  Fortunately, as emphasised by its trunk in the air, the dream lesson of the wooden elephant ultimately brings you good fortune and happiness.

  1. Aello, thank you! On reading the Pinocchio reference, I understood.Pinnochio wanted to be a ‘real boy’ and I have been battling quite substantially with the reality of my faith and how it blends in with all aspects of my life. Sometimes I feel wooden and impenetrable – and to be honest a little too scared to let people see me. Discussing the dream has helped and should be a pretty good guide for further thought.

    A really insightful interpretation. Bless. 🙂

  2. Hi Cheryl

    I’m happy that my interpretation is giving you something further to mull over. You’re asking yourself some big questions so be gentle and just be open to the answers as they come.

    Bright blessings
