Had a short, vivid and strange dream last night, with weird symbology.

I was 'in' the world of warcraft game and I found a rare creature, a dragon, that sat on top of a clocktower next to a large clock. Someone was with me but i dont know who it was, I said to this person 'there he is, I'm gonna kill it!'. When I got closer the dragon said to me "not again! not again today!" on which I replied "sorry but yes, I need your reward". The dragon desided to give me the reward without battle and threw a small wooden box at my feet. It fell open and inside was a Tarot deck, one card fell out facing up. I picked up the card, suddenly my mother was there and she said ' wow that's a nice card to start with'.
It was the card of 'red robbinhood' (lol)
then I woke up.

Today different people tried to analyze this dream and I heard different kind of interpretations.

Now, I played wow for several years, I know the rare elite hunt and the drops (reward).
The clock tower, I had looked up information about Big Ben for my kids school the night before.
I also used to play with tarot cards and for me they symbolize 'the answer to a question, or guiding on the direction to take'... (wow also has card decks in and out game)
The only thing I dont have a clue about is Red robbinhood.. on a tarot card! I have absolutely no idea where to seek the meaning of that.

All thoughts are welcome


edit to add: the tarot card read 'red robbin hood' but had the picture of a girl in a red cape, like little red cap

Red Robin Hood - well maybe you are to become Socialist/Communist or whatever the Socialism branch. Because I think red stands for socialism. Robin hood was a socialist by nature wasn't he? Taking from the rich and giving to the poor.

And the dragon could be "The system" - Capitalism/Corporatism or whatever and you don't have to kill you it gives up. Maybe capitalism and our economic system is to fail. We will no longer need to fight against it - we will just take from rich without having to kill them and give to the poor. To create a more just system or whatever ... blah blah... that's my interpretation. Hope you like it or find it interesting. ^__^

First thing first, were you Alliance or Horde?
Which city, a main city or an outlying town?
Said monster was on a clock tower, did you reach it with epic flight or the standard non epic flyer?
Red Robin, when your armor is any class above common, and is damaged it shows as red.
Awww forget it, i don't remember what i was gonna say.

Analize this

I think you mean analyze this. To "analize" means something very different.



I found a rare creature, a dragon, that sat on
top of a clocktower next to a large clock.

...first thought...a rare spawn that dropped a delorean mount would totally beat the time lost proto drake.




Someone was with me but i dont know who it was

Probably your healer. You really should pay more attention to them. Somebody could have been killing him, but no...there you were toatlly focused on the dragon and the loot, ignoring your healer's cries for peels. Shame on you.




It fell open and inside was a Tarot deck, one card fell out facing up.
I picked up the card, suddenly my mother was there

...don't think I'd want to wear my own mother in the trinket slot.


 


*Ahem* But to be more serious...



The only thing I dont have a clue about is Red robbinhood

"Red robbinhood" seems like a mix of Robin Hood" with "Red Riding Hood."



All thoughts are welcome


It's often difficult to examine other people's dreams, because internal symbols vary a lot from person to person. Looking up lists of fixed "meanings" for dream symbols doesn't often work very well. To one person, the ocean may be the scary unknown. To another it may be adventure. A dragon to one person might be an evil creature associated with the end times, whie to another it may be a noble beast.

Apart from the obvious interpretation of you acheiving a goal, the only sigtnificant details that stand out to me are:

* A rare spawn takes a lot of diligence to find. But in your case, once you found it, there was no battle. It gave up the reward very easily to you with no struggle. Also, rare spawns don't always drop the desired loot. it seems like your reward would not be a gaurunteed drop. But the dragon simply gave it to you.
* If there is a shared collective consciousness, it seems reasonable that the minds of 5-12 million people all playing the same game would have a substantial presence in the collective mind. It should come as no surprise if minds entwined in that presence might occassionally call out to minds that used to be entwined.
* Personally, in my own dreams, appearances of my mother are usually...by my best interpretation...psychic entities assuming a form they assume will be comfortable and trustworthy to me in order to lull me into a false sense of security. That may be my own psyche at work, or it may be a legitimite interpretation. But if it is legitimite, and there are psychic entities doing this, it seems plausible that they might do it to dreamers other than myself. That "someone" was lingering around that you were aware of but couldn't identify...and then suddenly your mother was there seems especially suspect.
* It's interesting that your mother commented that it's a nice card to start with. "Start" implies a new venture.
* As mentioned, "red robbinhood" implies Robin Hood + Little Red Riding Hood to me. Red Riding Hood is a common archetype in Jungian psychology.

Otherwise...not really enough to work with.

First of all, thanks so far for the attempts to interpretate my dream :p

I haven't played wow in a while, not sure why that pops up in my dreams now.

The only thing that I wonder about is the card, it read red robbin hood, but it had the picture of a girl in a red cape (like little red cap), so yes it seems to be a mix of the two , red cap and robbin hood... must be one of the weirdest dream symbols I ever had

Disclaimer: I don't interpret other people's dreams, but some dream motifs and characters are dreamt by many, many people, and I sometimes recognize those motifs and characters. I can tell you what several of the people who have dreamt dreams like yours have thought about their dreams, but only you can decide whether that has anything to do with your personal dream.

It's interesting how pop culture imagery will show up in dreams. I think that's because much of it came from dream experience in the first place. In what follows, searchable terms are in italics, if you are interested in looking any of them up on the web. I'll be brief.

You may wish to consider the possibility that this is a big dream in Carl Jung's sense. Your dragon is a prime candidate to be a representative of the shadow. That you think you need to fight it but it wants to cooperate instead is almost a dead giveaway. Well, that and it's cold blooded and has scales
.

Briefly, the shadow represents those aspects of yourself that you dislike, disapprove of, wish you didn't have, or didn't have to deal with. But, of course, these things are part of you, and they're not going away. There is value in coming to terms with them consciously, and learning to benefit from them by working with them.

Shadow's representative gives you a gift. A mythical being (dragon) gives you a box with a deck of cards, showing one card which playfully unites the names of a legendary character (Robin Hood) with a fairy tale character (Red Riding Hood). Myth, legend and fairy tale, all products of the unconscious, all bundled into one single well-formed image, a dragon gives you a picture of Red Robbinhood.

For your mother showing up, you're own your own : ). But the rest is a fairly common dream message, that conscious cooperation with unconscious processes, rather than "suppressing," "repressing" or ignoring them, yields consciously apprehensible benefits.

And you're a writer. Hmm. Maybe more immediately useful for you than for most.

Anyway, you probably want to write down everything about this dream that you remember. You may be thinking about it in the months and years ahead, and you will appreciate having the details recorded while they are fresh in your mind.

If you're interested, you might also want to check out shadow work.

Hope that helps. Well dreamt.

sorry for this late reply, had computer issues over the last couple of days.

thanks for your interpretation, I think in the mean time I figured part of the dream out....

red 'riding' hood: the moral of the story is to stay on the pad, which is something I was thinking a lot of before the dream (including seeing double numbers everywhere which I interprete as a possitive sign that I am on the right pad or doing what I'm suposed to be doing)

red 'robin hood': give to the poor, which is also a big issue in my life right now (several people wanting things from me... and me figuring out if I should keep giving and giving and when enough is enough)

maybe the dragon, who gives me a reward without battle, is telling me that I make things harder on myself then they should be and that the reward will come without the battle as well.

the warcraft scene: not sure about this... life is like playing a game? The more effort you put into it the more epic the reward? not sure...

My mother was the card reader not me, but being sorrunded by the pegan beliefs i picked up alot of it.



The dragon desided to give me the reward without battle and threw a small wooden box at my feet. It fell open and inside was a Tarot deck, one card fell out facing up. I picked up the card, suddenly my mother was there and she said ' wow that's a nice card to start with'.
It was the card of 'red robbinhood'



i have no idea who red robbinhood is, maybe thats you, so that you will have to figure that one out... but i know that your mother suddenly appearing like that means that "she" was probably the card.( card you were holding. ) Im going to say that card was the empress.
and the dragon and the battle is DEFIANTLY a card too. Im going to say it was the 5 of wands, the epic battle with the dragon, according to the mythic tarot. And the 6 of wands too because you received the prize and won the battle with one friend. the question is, who is that friend? so that draws 3 cards. and with 3 cards you can do a past, present and future reading.

First you are fighting the dragon with someone.. but who you must have had some feeling who it might be.. This is the first card, so we are going to say he represents the past. something you have already learned from. Usually this card represents alot of people helping you fight, 'cuz he is a powerful dragon. but you only had One frined which is intresting, it must mean you are very strong and confident around this person. What's really interesting is that the dragon just kinda surrendered to you, maybe because you have done it enough times, it time for a real prize.
So that is why i picked this card, Im sure when you read the meaning you will agree.
Read the meaning of the 5 of wands There is so many pages of what the 5 of wands means, so if you want feel free to do a search, but remember, this is your past.

now we move into the present, we have learned from the 5 of wands, and we are moving into the next faze, the prize! which represents now, the present. The 6 of wands. i didnt pick cups, pentacles or swords because you placed your dream in the form of a quest and wands represents quests. the meaning of the 6 of wands the Prize

With your mother just appearing, I believe this represented the Empress,(The mother figure) now; she said "wow that's a nice card to start with!!" Meaning, its not about her, its about you! I place this in your future, even though it was "starting" because that is how the dream ended, with you holding the card, waiting for this great card to manifest. So i guess, this is your new beginning.. so please read about this card, and finish puzzling your dream, i look forward to it manifesting in your life.
The empress
