Spiritually, as we reach for perfection we need to ?work through? various aspects of our personality. Sometimes we are able to reject such aspects as not being appropriate for the life we live. For instance, we may realize that the destructiveness of a public life would take its toll within our own lives. Famous people, pop and film stars and sporting celebrities may also serve in dreams as a projection of the type of person we would like to be. We may, for instance, in real life be shy and withdrawn, but need to be admired and loved. In today?s climate of media celebrities, both minor and otherwise, such figures can also be targets for opprobrium. Most of us are capable of creating an ideal person on whom to project our fantasies and wishes. We are not at this stage particularly in touch with reality. In dreams a film, pop star or public figure will represent the Animus or Anima. A young person dreaming of a film star may not be ready for the responsibility of a real relationship. In a womans dream a male pop star or famous person will most likely represent the 'knight in shining armour' destined to take her away from her mundane life. In a mans dream a female star is more likely to represent a desired type of femininity. Consult the information on the Animus/Anima in the Introduction and also the entries for Celebrity and Fame for more information.
