PMS Dream

Last night I dreamt I murdered this guy who had blond hair and blue eyes. He had a crew cut, and he was a real asshole. I hit him on the head with a shovel and then rowed him out in a canoe and dumped him in a lake. Unfortunately, he came back to life. He never left the lake, but anyone who rowed out on the lake would see him just under the surface staring at them.

Moral: You just can't get rid of your masculine side by slamming it over the head and dumping it to the bottom of your consciousness. It will always be there. I have no resolution. When you start to act like an ass, I suppose your subconscious mind is going to try and suppress that side of you in your dreams. The shovel is symbolic of finding your identity. By using the shovel to smash in the head of your masculine side you are forcing it just below the surface of your consciousness (water is symbolic of the conscious mind). I'm sure this is helpful.......especially when you have PMS. Your need to pummel someone is taken care of, and you've also managed to "bury" that side that does it - at least temporarily.

It's interesting that your Ophelia is like a physical polar-opposite (like a physical photographic negative). You wonder if he's kept just below the surface and only visible to people you feel close to, or safe with.
