Two Carp


Recently, I haven't had dreams, but a couple of days ago some slightly mysterious carp were in my dream.

When I was trying to have a bath, I noticed , in the bathtub, two carp: they were red and black each. They were swimming in the bath, even though the water was hot. I thought I wouldn't be able to have the bath, so I transferred them to other smaller tubs. When I did the red one, she took a glance at me and let out a sigh, then I could see it was as if she wanted to say, "I am not bothered."

When I woke up, I didn't have any idea what this dream meant. According to Jung, fish symbolise something coming up from my subconscious. Also, carp represent strength. I think I am likely to come across something contrary in the near future. What's more, these might become valuable and important things for me. As the red carp said, if I don't choose the red one, she doesn't mind. It means both are carp: even if I choose the black one, I could get the same quality as if I chose the red one. So this dream implies that I shouldn't be deceived by appearances and I should focus on the quality. So this is the point that I will grasp or not.

There was a total solar eclipse in part of Asia, including in the south of Japan on the 22nd of July. I think something has changed since the day.

I had a dream around the day of the total solar eclipse.

I was eating my breakfast in a dimly lit room. There were two bowls of miso-soup on the table. My mother opened the storm-shutter as she was saying, "Today is a good day for having babies." At the same time, I wanted to say that it was a good idea to start something at the new moon, but I couldn't. A shaft of sunlight shone into the dimly lit room.

I felt with my gut that I was in my mother's womb. Staying in the womb is very safe for babies, but without going out from the womb, babies will not be able to know about outside. Also, the womb nurtures a kind of seed. However if this seed grows into seedling, it can't have flowers in the womb.

I think the time is coming to go after a new idea, an unknown personality and so on. But the problem is that I hesitate to take action boldly.
