Last night I had a dream that included three visions in very short succession one after the other : This will probably be my last dream post I don't
think anyone reads them anyway lol and the symbolic dreams really don't make much sense to me.
Saw the symbol of a fish that's body was in the shape of a circle which had a dot in the centre of it. There were small drops of blood beside the
fish. I felt the blood represented DNA or a bloodline.
Fish: the fish -- ever-watchful with its unblinking eyes -- was one of the most important symbols of Christ to the early Christians. In Greek, the
phrase, "Jesus Christ, Son of God Savior," is "Iesous Christos Theou Yios Soter." The first letters of each of these Greek words, when put
together, spell "ichthys," the Greek word for "fish" (ICQUS ).
The earliest literary reference to the fish as Christian symbol was made by Clement of Alexandria, who advised Christians to use a dove or fish as
their seal. Tertullian wrote (in "De Baptismo") "But we, being little fishes, as Jesus Christ is our great Fish, begin our life in the water, and
only while we abide in the water are we safe and sound." Also used as a Christian symbol was the dolphin, most often as a symbol of the Christian
himself rather than Christ, though the dolphin was also used as a representation of Christ -- most often in combination with the anchor symbol
("Christ on the Cross").
In pagan beliefs, Ichthys was the offspring of the ancient Sea goddess Atargatis, and was known in various mythic systems as Tirgata, Aphrodite,
Pelagia, or Delphine. The word also meant "womb" and "dolphin" in some tongues, and representations of this appeared in the depiction of mermaids.
The fish is also a central element in other stories, including the Goddess of Ephesus, as well as the tale of the fish of the Nile that swallowed part
of Osiris' body and was also considered a symbol of the sexuality of Isis for she had sexual intercourse with Osiris after his death which resulted
in the conception and birth of his posthumous son, Harpocrates, Horus-the-child. So, in pagan beliefs, the fish is a symbol of birth and fertility.
The Romans called the goddess of sexual fertility by the name of Venus. Friday was regarded as her sacred day, because it was believed that the planet
Venus ruled the first hour of Friday and thus it was called dies Veneris. And to make the significance complete, the fish was also regarded as being
sacred to her.
Coins of various Philistine or Phænician cities, on most of which Dagon is represented as a composite figure, human as to the upper part of the body,
fish-like as to the lower. From this it may well be inferred that Dagon was a fish-god. e had face and hands and a portion of his body resembled that
of a fish, in accordance with the most probable interpretation of "the stump of Dagon" (verse 4). Dagon is sometimes associated with a female
half-fish deity, Derceto or Atargatis, often identified with Astarte
The fish also appears in another sacred iconograph, the Avatars of Vishnu, where the deity "is represented as emerging from the mouth of a fish, and
being a fish himself; the legend being that he was to be the Saviour of the world in a deluge which was to follow..."
CIRCLE with a DOT (BINDU) in the center: In the complex symbolic system of Hinduism and Buddhism, the bindu (dot) represents the male force. Together,
the circle and the bindu symbolize the merging of male and female forces. This symbol can also represent the Sun or in the shape of a fish with a dot
in the centre The Eye of Horus (See "Sun Sign" below and "Circle" above) Hindus call the midpoint in a circle the bindu - the spark of (masculine)
life within the cosmic womb
ELEMENTS: The four basic elements to many pagans are earth, water, air (wind or spirit) and fire. Many consider the first two passive and feminine -
and the last two active and masculine. In Wiccan or Native American rituals, the "quartered circle" (similar to the the Medicine Wheel) represents a
"sacred space" or the sacred earth. The four lines may represent the spirits of the four primary directions or the spirits of the earth, water, wind
Interesting that the air symbol is a circle with a dot in the centre and the fish would represent water.
I then found myself in a tomb with many large statues - the one that was brought forward and presented to me was of a Black Winged Isis
I saw a rider on a black horse for some reason when I saw it I thought it represented death but on looking it up on the internet found death to be the
The third horseman, riding the black horse, is called Famine. The black color of the third horse could be a symbol of the dead.
Revelation 6:5 - 6:6 - “And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he
that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three
measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.’”
I feel the scales are significant here.
“Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realize we cannot eat money.” Cree Indian
Perhaps the four horseman represent the sins of mankind as a collective -
greed and selfishness ?
