Making Love with a Movie Star

Sex dreams are often about merging several aspects of yourself together, or loving a part of yourself you’ve judged or rejected.

Sex with a celebrity can mean you want more visibility, self-worth, and recognition, or you are activating qualities in yourself represented by the famous person.

Sex with an authority figure like a professor, doctor, or boss, can show how it feels to have greater power and knowledge so you can be more effective in the world.

Sex with a foreigner or someone of another race might mean you are integrating the character traits of that culture or racial consciousness into your personality. Sex with someone of your own gender may simply show you how to better accept and love yourself.

Love Note

To receive a love note in your dream symbolizes a budding new love that is blossoming in your life. Alternatively, the dream may mean that you are seeking some reassurance or reinforcement about a new relationship. You are feeling insecure.

Love Spell

To dream that you are under a love spell parallels waking feelings of love. The feeling is so strong and fresh that it has found its way into your dream. Be careful not to let your heart guide you. Perhaps, the dream forewarns that you need to exercise some control and objectiveness.

Love Triangle

To dream that you are part of a love triangle where you are in love with the same person indicates that you are experiencing some form of insecurity and jealousy in your waking relationship. You feel that your attention or time is being divided.

If you dream that you are in love with two different persons, then it means that you are not completely committed to your current relationship. Alternatively, the persons involved in the love triangle may all be aspects of your own self. You are experiencing some strong emotional conflict.

Traditional symbols of love always express a duality in which the two antagonistic elements are, nevertheless, reconciled. Thus, the Indian lingam, the Yang-Yin, or even the Cross, where the upright beam is the world-axis and the cross-beam the world of phenomena. They are, in other words, symbols of a conjunction, or the expression of the ultimate goal of true love: the elimination of dualism and separation, uniting them in the mystic ‘centre’, the ‘unvarying mean’ of Far Eastern philosophy.

The rose, the lotus flower, the heart, the irradiating point—these are the most frequent symbols of this hidden centre; ‘hidden’ because it does not exist in space, although it is imagined as doing so, but denotes the state achieved through the elimination of separation. The biological act of love itself expresses this desire to die in the object of the desire, to dissolve in that which is already dissolved.

For a correct interpretation of the dream you must first consider who it was who loved you, and at the same time, who was the object of your love. Overall, love in dreams represents the desire to achieve an idealized relationship that is difficult to achieve.
Although it can also be a reminder for you to pay more attention to your partner, thus avoiding neglect of that person’s love.

From the oneiric point of view, to dream that you are loved and blessed augurs hardship. Instead, to dream that you are often disgraced or rejected often implies happy days.

Dreams of sincere love are a forecast of happiness and contentment through a healthy and intelligent adjustment to the conditions of life; but a dream of illicit love or sheer lust has a portent of disappointment or failure due to your own greed. To dream of observing the lovemaking of others predicts success in your current undertakings.

Dreaming of being in love can represent a desire for love, a longing for the early days of love when a relationship was new and exciting, or the simple electric thrill of a crush. Love in dreams can be pure and innocent or lusty and carnal—the former usually represents a spiritual desire, while the latter represents a physical desire. People often dream of new love and crushes, flirting, and that wonderful feeling of just meeting someone new and exciting when they initially enter a relationship—the dream is using up some of that excess love energy. Or when they haven’t had that thrill in a while, the dream is a desire. Either way, dreams of love can boost your mood all day, so we hope you have lots of them.

If your love dream is about your actual partner, you have a strong foundation and you feel supported by your partner. You might wish for a little more romance.
If you dream of being in love with someone you just met, you are inwardly exploring the potential of that relationship, even if you aren’t actually feeling anything strong in your waking life just yet.
