Interpretation of dream: Nun

In today's somewhat promiscuous society it is unlikely that we will dream of virgins. Nuns, however, as holy women epitomize devotion to the Divine and as a feminine archetype signify the Priestess, one who has a spiritually satisfying relationship with God. The nun, as a woman who has dedicated her life to service of her God, signifies our emotional need to commit to something beyond ourselves. For many, whose experiences of nuns in real life have not been pleasant, they will be figures of fear and disciplinary action. For others, nuns will symbolize the devoted caring of which they are capable. Also consult the entries for Mystic and Caring Professions in People as well as the information on Priestess in Archetypes in the Introduction.
