A warning, the details of which depend on other symbols in the dream. If you dream of an accident while traveling by car, this could be a hint that you should either avoid travel at this time, or, if you can't avoid it, make sure that your car is in the best possible condition before you leave. Stay away from planes, trains, buses, boats, or dangerous walking, such as hiking in the mountains, for at least a day after you have the dream, and preferably for a week. If you must go, take a cell phone with you (in case you must call for help), as well as first aid supplies.
- If the actor or actress is a particular favorite of yours, ask yourself what you admire about this person. This could be an attempt by your Higher Self to point out a specific admirable quality in you that would prove of great use to you.
- If the actor or actress isn't a particular favorite, but reminds you of someone you know, this is a wake-up call: That person is "acting," not showing his or her true colors, probably to suit his or her own ends.
- Depending on the other symbols in the dream, this could mean that YOU need to do a little "acting." A situation may arise where showing your true feelings will NOT be in your best interests.
- If the air is clear and sunny, success lies ahead.
- If the air is cloudy, foggy, misty, or stormy, then you're not in a clear frame of mind. Perhaps you should postpone making important decisions for a few days.
- Pumping air into a tire or air mattress implies that your support system (family, friends, colleagues) is weak and needs to be strengthened.
- Escape from the mundane exigencies of the lower world.
- The search for higher consciousness. Travel into the higher realms.

Alcohol (Beer, Wine, Liquor)
- Dreaming of drinking beer, wine, etc., in moderation, under happy circumstances - with friends, at a party, etc. - indicates that success lies ahead. However, in any dream of alcohol, there is always the underlying warning that excesses can lead to trouble.
- If you dream of being drunk, then in some way you are at a disadvantage. Look to other symbols in the dream to judge where this disadvantage lies.
- If in the dream, you are sober but someone else is drunk, that person, or someone like him or her, could cause trouble for you.
Someone around you does not have your best interests at heart - and it might be someone whom you feel you can trust. Consider other symbols in the dream to discern how or who. Be very cautious in business ventures of any sort. Consult an attorney before signing any contract or agreement.
A symbol of spiritual strength and help from the higher planes. Also, relief from pressing worries and good news from a surprising source.
- Pay attention to the other symbols in the dream. A dream of an angel almost always implies that the dream contains an important message that could have a major impact on your life.
- There are many different kinds of angels. Dreaming of a strong, commanding, six-winged seraph is a powerful sign that any difficulties occurring in your life will be overcome by your own strength and determination. A smaller, gentler cherub is a bringer of God's knowledge and wisdom, so dreaming of a cherub (not to be confused with a putto) hints at insights and revelations that are basically spiritual in nature but can be used to enrich your earthly life as well. Putti, which are the winged babies commonly and incorrectly referred to as cherubs, imply happy times ahead. Dreaming of one of the archangels - Gabriel, Michael, Raphael, and Uriel - means that you are or soon will be doing God's work, and the usual type of angel pictured on Christmas cards implies divine protection.
- A very positive symbol implying success, happiness, and rewarding friendships ahead.
- Domestic animals: Comfort, familiarity, security, gentleness. Astrological parallel: Virgo
- Wild animals: The lower nature, the unknown, fear, danger. Astrological parallel: Aries
- Dreaming of a small and cramped apartment implies times ahead where you will have to work hard and persevere in order to have the lifestyle you want.
- A large apartment, on the other hand, indicates prosperity and luxury ahead.
A symbol of creativity, of the ability to create your own world the way you want it.
- If you dream of a famous artist, you need to ask yourself what this particular artist means to you, and how you feel about his or her work. If you're a fan, then you're on the right track, either with regard to a specific matter you're concerned about or your life in general.
- If the artist is an unknown male figure, then your intellect is trying to convey a message about something you're working on. Consider the picture: Is it just begun, half finished, nearly complete? Is it a good painting, or is it a mess?
- If the artist is an unknown female figure, then the picture concerns matters of the emotions. Again, look at the picture itself, as well as the other symbols in the dream, to judge what the picture is trying to tell you. The same goes if YOU are the artist.
If you have the dream in autumn, then the season has no significance and serves only as background.
- But if you dream of autumn at another time of year, and other symbols in the dream are hurried, this is a signal that time is passing and something in your life needs immediate attention.
- All other dreams of autumn are positive, signifying friendly forces supporting and protecting you.
