The Freudian vision of hurricanes is directly related to the power of the libido and, specifically, to the orgasmic force. Dreams of hurricanes highlight the fear of sexuality, as well as the passion that derives from it. The individual is faced with a choice: either to accept this power and take full advantage of its potential, or to reject it and be constantly attracted by the impulse of Eros (life drive), which could turn into Thanatos (death drive) if he/she fails to understand this power.

Emotional Emotional

Spiritual Spiritual
Being in the eye of the storm symbolizes the still, calm center within yourself where you can find insight and strength amidst chaos. If you are swept up in the storm, you are experiencing intensely confusing thoughts and are consumed by overwhelming conditions.


Anthropologists have found that many graphic symbols owe their origin to the hurricane—especially in America. This is true, for instance, of the sigma, the double sigma and the swastika. But at the same time, the hurricane has a symbolic meaning of its own. Ortiz observes that the hurricane, like celestial bodies, has two characteristic motions: rotary and sideways. In its sidewise motion, there is an intermediary point of absolute calm: the so-called ‘eye of the hurricane’.

For American aborigines, the hurricane is cosmic synergy, since it contains three Elements within itself (fire or light-rays, air or wind, water or rain) and disturbs the fourth—earth. It was worshipped as a deity of the winds and waters, and also of the heavens.
