: : Two days ago I had a dream and I'm not sure what it means
: : I'm a young queen who was forced out of her throne. Then she, a knight and others retake the throne with the means of a sword with a blue handle. The knight wears golden armor. The Queen is seen in a blue and silver gown, and her royal robe is a traditional red with a white and black spot fur lining.
: : She acsends the throne for the first time in years and puts on her crown, and sits looking regal. And that's when I woke up.
: : Any comments? Ideas on what this means?
First of all, I love this dream, more so the image it creates.
And the story-Whew! The young queen returns from her exile to accept her crown, which
to have belonged to her all this time. And, she achieves this with the help of the gold-plated "knight in shining armor".
Then, the blue-handled silver sword echoes the Queen's raiment of blue and silver-
they are linked, united. Its seems the re-enthroned Queen sits regally wearing her
robes of silver and blue and also wears the traditional robe of a queen also.
So many strands woven together in this image. The once-was-a-queen, now a queen re-crowned,
with the help of her knight and his discriminating sword.
She wears both the new and old regal garments.Metaphors encompassing the feminine and
masculine, the new and the old, the modern and traditional, the gold and silver, the exile
and the resurrection.
A quotation from Marion Woodman's "Addiction to Perfection-the Still Unravished Bride"
"...if she abdicates her throne, then her creative spirit,
rather than soaring with the gods from one judgmental affect
to another, wil wield his golden sword, split open her armor
of fear and free her into Life."
