Don't judge a book by its cover - dream interpretation
THE DREAM - I was in a beach, though I didn't look at the sea, somehow I knew it was a beach. There were lots of books spread over the sand so I almost couldn't see it. I picked a book named "No Meow" - a child book I always wanted to read when I was a child because the title and the cover with a black cat and a guilty-looking dog always triggered my curiosity, but I could never find it. I started to read it but it was actually the book about religions of the world I've been reading lately.
There were LOTS of strange-looking insects running aimlessly through the sand but most of them gathered under me. They looked like brown cockroaches but they had thorns. They didn't touch me and they were not annoying me. I found it somewhat natural. I went to another spot to look for another book, and the insects followed me. I woke up before picking another book.
THE REALITY The night before the dream the dreamer met a man who caught her eye. He was very handsome. She did not talk to him properly as they were in a large group of people. She met him two days later and hated his personality.
THE INTERPRETATION There is an old phrase - "Do not judge a book by its cover". This dream perfectly illustrates that. The handsome man in that sense had a good front cover. But his appeal was only skin deep. His personality was not appealing.
Beaches are places where the sea meets the land. In dreams the land refers to our grounded reality - our real life. The sea refers emotional connections. Here our urges and feelings for other people exist. But in this dream the dreamer had her back to the sea. So maybe that shows how she could not really know what her feelings about this man were until she met him on a more person to person basis.
The bugs refer to irritations and how she did not like him. Finally she goes to take another book - clearly a sign that the one she was happy with was not to her liking.
Perhaps the dream was premonition of the eventual outcome - the dreamer often had premonitions. But it does not matter either way - the simple message was that the dreamer should reserve judgement until when she actually met him on a more individual basis.
