A Little Pig & a Lot of Full Moon – Dreams & Eclipses Amping Up the Energy
Has anyone else been dreaming a ton, not only in fast-forward it seems, but in seamless stories that roll one after the other packed with collective stuff?
It’s so interesting that while I was away both in Iceland and Peru, I wasn’t remembering my dreams, which is very unusual for me. I know I was dreaming, as I do A LOT, but I was quite deep I believe. So even if I would remember little bits for a second, the next second they were gone. The only dream I remember fully was the one I shared happening on the eve of the Equinox while on Amantani Island on Lake Titicaca. SO interesting I only remembered that very potent and important one.
But since being back, I’m back to my vivid dreams, but they are unusually packed full each night, one after another, but I’m noticing a theme that a good majority of them all have people I know either well, a little, or at a distance, all showing up in them. And I’m noticing that the dreams are all about things that THEY are processing, challenges, and so on, coming through me. It’s as if they’re sharing with me, I’m observing their lives, and helping to process the stuff.
It’s not a foreign concept, as I/we do a lot of collective work and healers do a lot of work in their sleep with others, but I’ve never had it stream in so much, like every day. Usually it’s random, but everyone is coming in strong and consistently. Perhaps due to opening more multi-dimensionally and due to the collective healing energy I sent out while on my journey and the openings that took place, creating a stream of more of this to take place. I also happen to know a lot of these people are all going through major shifts and challenges currently, and I also just happen to be a Pisces who does most of the work in dream time. It’s a wonder I ever feel rested and refreshed. 🙂
So, it was kind of a relief, in a way, that the dream I remembered and directly woke up from last night was light, affirming, and well-humored, although still involved a dear friend I know.
Yesterday, I got a ton done, which always amazes me how much I get accomplished and within the time I intend. After an already full day I completed a sacred tattoo design with time to prepare my crystal elixirs, and head out for a nice Indian dinner and walk along the beach in the glow of the blossoming Full Moon to set intentions.
I was then fast in bed, dreaming away, and my last dream from which I awoke from was the light one I mentioned.
In the dream I was with my banana friend, Lynne, and a friend of hers. They were asking me what made me choose to be vegan. They were both a little giddy in the dream and so I started telling them about a pig. But not just any pig, but a pig I fell in love with. I told them there was a pink pig with black and white spots that was so cute and we fell in love and have been ever since. And I went vegan because of him and my love for this pig and all that he represented and we’ve had a secret love affair ever since. I then concluded that they both would probably not remember anything I just told them, so that’s my story.
Now, that’s not quite why I went vegan, although isn’t too far off track, since it was for deep spiritual reasons aligned with my personal beliefs and deep connection with the animals.
I could likely pull out some symbolism in this indeed, but it was interesting I immediately woke from this dream and it was dark outside and realized it was the middle of the Lunar Eclipse taking place. I also texted Lynne not too long after to tell her this funny dream and found she had gotten up super early herself and was out in the dark and cold, bundled up in Oregon, just her and the Moon and her Crystal, setting intentions.
By the time I got outside the total Lunar Eclipse was just passing and illumination was beginning to light the Moon, exposing its pinky tone against the black darkness unveiling it.
Lynne made a point and said, perhaps your “pink” pig was the Blood Full Moon, which appears red or pink, and the white and black spots he had was the Eclipse.
According to Avia Venefica on pig symbolism:
“Symbolic meaning of pigs varies according to region & culture.
In earlier cultures such as ancient Egyptian the pig (sow, specifically) was considered a Great Mother and were symbols of fertility and abundance. Here the pig was sacred to Isis, who embodied fertility.
To the ancient Celts, the (sow) pig was also honored as a mother provider figure. Celtic lore tells of Manannan, who owned a heard of pigs that never dwindled – they were forever replenishing and regenerating their numbers. The herd never diminished, and there is a legend they even healed themselves too. This might be why an Irish icon of a pig isn’t lucky unless it’s missing a bit (like an ear or a leg) – perhaps harkening back to Manannan’s self-generating pig herd. As such, in Celtic symbolism pigs remained icons of abundance.
Also in ancient Celtic beliefs, the pig was associated with Ceridwen (or Keridwin) and Phaea who were both fertility moon goddesses.
The pig was also a symbol of virility, strength, and ferility in ancient Chinese cultures. The boar is even among the animals in the Chinese zodiac where it is considered a symbol of sincerity, honesty, and determination. Chinese lore indicates a pig brings good luck for businesses.
In Hindu symbolism, the pig is linked to Vajravarahi, the female consort of Vishnu.
The Greeks would sacrifice pigs to deities who pertained to farming and agriculture (Demeter, Ares, Gaia) this was to bring about bumper crops and insure favorable growing seasons.
On the other hand, the pig is a symbol of ignorance in Buddhism. Indeed, a black pig is illustrated on the Buddhist wheel of existence where it represents one of the three illusions of man in the Buddhist philosophy:
- illusions of thought & desires
- illusions innumerable as particles of dust and sand
- illusions about the true nature of life
All of these are said to prevent man from attaining Nirvana in the Buddhist tradition.
The pig is a symbol of sloth (laziness) and/or greed in ancient Christian symbolism.
Jewish, Moslums and Islamic cultures view the pig as unclean and they are forbidden to eat pork.
In dream symbolism the domestic pig indicates fertility.”
Quite interesting, huh?!
Maybe I was summoned for the event, maybe I was receiving a connecting message from Lynne, maybe the pig was a symbol for me currently in my life in relation to some or all of what Avia shares above – as the pig also has direct Moon connections, or maybe I do really just love pigs – because I DO!! SO MUCH!! And wouldn’t be surprised if one, one day found its way into my life. 😉
Nonetheless, it was sweet to connect with Lynne during this potent and sacred time and I had a chance to check in on my Crystal friends basking in the energy of the Moon out in the garden, as well as feel the glow of the Moon on my face and take it in, in full embodiment – just as we’d done in Peru with the Sun and on the Equinox New Moon Lunar Eclipse a couple of weeks ago.
Feeling a full circle experience integrating and curious to see what’s flowing in next.
