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

baby in a purse


I was at a party at my best friend’s house. As I was leaving, she hugged me much longer and tighter than normal. I next noticed that I had misplaced my purse and began to look for it. I finally found my purse and as I was walking down the path outside, I looked inside it and there was a new born baby boy wrapped in a blanket. I thought, ‘What am I going to do with this baby?’ I was thinking about leaving him at a hospital before I woke up. 

The central theme of this dream is value. Your best friend, your purse and the baby are all precious blessings of life that require nurturing and protection. Your friend, who is actually an aspect of your self, acknowledges this truth with a special hug. However, there is another, more familiar, aspect of your self that isn’t as careful; the part of you that misplaces the purse and considers leaving the baby at the hospital.

Your dream brings the tension between these two aspects of yourself to your consciousness. Part of you is reluctant to accept responsibility but another part completely embraces the wholeness of life. The presence of the baby shows that this new perception is now with you and is ready to be integrated into your life.

As you travel along your life path you will meet with the unexpected (like babies in purses!). These unexpected events, people and circumstances will be both gifts and challenges. The trick is to recognise the experiences and people of value and accept the rewards and the responsibility that comes with them.
