What Each Of The Zodiac Signs Dream About

Reality cannot compare.

If there's one place where we are totally free, it's in our minds. No one can police us there, and no one can judge us for what goes on there. Not unless we invite them in, of course, which we never do... hopefully.

We keep our dreams, whether waking or sleeping, in our private fortress, and it's in there that we nurture those thoughts and dreams into either fruition or destruction. What we dream about when we are sleeping may be entirely different than what goes in our waking state, alas, as it's still our mind doing the computing.


And depending on the aspects in astrology, what the zodiac signs dream about differs from person to person. Each sign of the zodiac is prone to certain types of dream. Dreams may be aspirations or nightmares, and sometimes even living nightmares.

What we dream about "one day" is different than what we dreamt of "last night"; however, we are the dreamers, no matter what state of consciousness is being considered.
