Horse going uphill - dream analysis

This dream was a metaphor for the dreamers own emotions. The ups and downs of the journey were symbolic of his own emotional ups and downs.

THE DREAM I was riding a small, black, very shiny and healthy looking horse, bareback. I think it was night. There were 2 children on the back behind me, I knew they were there and that they were mine (even though I only have 1 in real life) but I never looked at them or saw them. We were riding up and down various terrain, easily gliding downhill but struggling to get uphill, having to get off the horse and walk with it uphill. The last thing I remember is that we were riding the horse around the bend of a concrete road, like a free way on ramp, when the horse almost lost its footing rounding the corner but regained its composure and kept going. It was never running in the dream, just walking or seemed, on the downhill, to be gliding.

GUESSWORK The dreamer had been out of work for months and was having a terrible time trying to find a job. The previous day her internet was not working and she couldn't apply for any jobs online and she was so frustrated about the whole situation that she was in tears.

The "Guesswork" stage of interpreting a dream involves spotting issues likely to cause dreams. For help with this click here

1. The horse is fit and healthy. That should be seen as a good symbol. It may capture the dreamers general attitude to life.
2. The horse and rider do encounter problems. Uphill in dreams can signify something that is difficult. The dreamer was going through general difficulties due to unemployment so that would be an obvious link.
3. Children can link to new projects or even your hopes. So this could relate to how the dreamer is trying to pursue their goals.

DREAM ANALYSIS In guesswork the dream was linked to an incident the day before which left the dreamer in tears. This in turn was linked to the dreamers inability to find work.
- Difficulties the dreamer is facing
- How the dreamer is coping with difficult times

If you weave together the different themes you find that they could capture these thoughts -"I have been unemployed or ages and I am finding life difficult. Yesterday I got really frustrated and ended up in tears because my internet was not working and I could not apply for jobs. I know I am going through a bad patch but I am fit and healthy and will bounce back."
