In genial Spring, beneath the quiv’ring shade,
Where cooling vapours breathe along the mead,
The patient fisher takes his silent strand,
Intent, his angle trembling in his hand:
With looks unmov’d, he hopes the scaly breed,
And eyes the dancing cork and bending reed.
-Alexander Pope (1688-1744)

Daily Dream Meaning: Skin

1. The meaning of a dream of human skin varies with its condition. If you dream of smooth, beautiful, healthy skin, it foreshadows romantic happiness. If you dream of blotchy or pimply skin, however, it indicates romantic trouble ahead. Peeling skin represents a sloughing off of the old in order to make way for the new.
2. Animal skins are a symbol of death, colored by the nature of the animal. For instance, rabbits represent fear, and if you dream of a rabbit skin that indicates that some of your fears are going to disappear. Dreaming of an ox, however, indicates a loss of strength and stamina. To dream of a coat or stole made of animal skins is a symbol of exploiting the vulnerable for the sake of one’s own gain.

A Note from the Universe

As surely as mountains are to be climbed and oceans sailed, your dreams are meant to come true. This is why you’re here to live the life of your dreams. Not to be tested, challenged, and tried, but to conquer, champion, and rule. Keep going, forge ahead, press on, and the day must dawn when your thirsts shall be quenched, and you, exalted.

Never settle for less, don’t ever think it’s too late, and never, ever, ever compromise a dream.

Exalting you early,

The Universe

Daily Wisdom

“When fortune closes one door, it opens another.” -Sa’di (A.D. 1213? – 1292)

We’ve heard some version of this particular quote used for many different scenarios. Its purpose is to show us that there is always something more. There are no endings, only new beginnings. Is that lucky for us? It’s nature’s design!

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The Tower

Is there a basic disconnect between how you wish things were and how they actually are? The Tower is a sign that you’re about to see the light about a certain situation, and although it’s disappointing, it certainly isn’t the end of the world. Don’t turn a blind eye to what’s happening around you. Embrace chaos so that you can grab the energy and turn it into something worthwhile.
