Dreams, Baby

I took a long nap this morning after MB went to work, and I dreamed that we had a baby son. He had big blue eyes and MB's dark, dark hair. I don't know how old the kid was supposed to be, but in the dream we were going to the grocery, and I needed to put a coat on the baby. It had been so warm that I hadn't put him in a coat in months, so we didn't have one that fit him. I opened our front closet, and the only coat we had was a size 0-3 months. Whoopsie.

I carried the baby around for most of the dream, and the whole thing was so realistic--his weight in my arms, the softness of his hair, that clean baby smell--that as I woke up I thought, "Well, shit. What did MB and I do with him last week when we went to the grocery without him?" and it was a few minutes before I realized we hadn't done anything with him, because he doesn't exist yet.

I told this to my friend S. at lunch today, and she asked--with a mischievous glint in her eye--"Are you sure you're not ready for kids?" I should've said, "Not when my dreams are telling me that I will forget to buy them coats."

Meanwhile, I am woman; hear me roar.

You are the World

Completion, Good Reward.

The World is the final card of the Major Arcana, and as such represents saturnian energies, time, and completion.

The World card pictures a dancer in a Yoni (sometimes made of laurel leaves). The Yoni symbolizes the great Mother, the cervix through which everything is born, and also the doorway to the next life after death. It is indicative of a complete circle. Everything is finally coming together, successfully and at last. You will get that Ph.D. you've been working for years to complete, graduate at long last, marry after a long engagement, or finish that huge project. This card is not for little ends, but for big ones, important ones, ones that come with well earned cheers and acknowledgements. Your hard work, knowledge, wisdom, patience, etc, will absolutely pay off; you've done everything right.

  1. The Prawn, who is penciled in for an appearance sometime in the next 6 weeks or so, has neither a coat nor anything else to wear. Things I should most likely get around to buying, eh?

    Ditto what Ang said. You will ROCK. Coats or not.

    Besides...didn't I teach you ANYTHING about the power of forgetting a coat for your child? I do it CONSTANTLY (including when we all went to dinner!) and Liam seems to be okay...;)
