Interesting; I dream almost every night of a house I sold a few years that I sincerely wish I hadn't (my childhood home). In every dream, no matter what's taking place, it's in that house. I find it rather comforting!

Probably says something about your nostalgic, sentimental side. :-)

I have three recurring dreams. One involves Halloween. It's Halloween and I don't have a single decoration up and there is no food for the tons of people coming. I have this dream at least once a year and I could dream it anytime.
The second recurring dream is the attic of an old house dream that is full of antiques. I love that dream. Some of the antiques are stunning. The dream has different furniture and a different layout. Sometimes it looks like a big store, but you still have to go up the attic stairs to get to it. Sometimes it really is just a big attic in an old house.
The third dream involves white catfish. They're in a beautiful pond and rise to the surface when you approach. Sometimes they're goldfish and there are a lot of them. In one dream the pond was empty. That was distressing to me. I love the fish dream. There's something comforting about it. The Halloween dream? Not so much. I think it's my naked in a classroom dream.

I'm sure each dream has a message, and I could guess that the Halloween dream is stress related, but the attic and fish dreams. I'm baffled.

My uneducated guess:
Attic dream - wealth. Pleasure from owning a lot of beautiful, expensive antiques.
Fish dream - fish = children. Maybe your own or your extended family or if you are a teacher, your class.

at least you folks have dreams that might need interpreting.
mine are boring and somewhat literal.

1. no nightmares.
nothing even close.
2. i remember the details about most of them.
that is how i know they are boring.
3. sometimes they provide a possible answer to real life.
i fixed my clothes dryer with an idea from a dream.

right now, i am working on lucid dreaming...where you know you are dreaming
and dream about whatever you want. the first step is remembering. i have that down.

More about regret, I would say.

Dr. Lennox, I presume? Psychologist or astrologist?

I had a disturbing dream the other night. Cuddling up with one of my Supervisors. Nothing sexual. Just a cuddle. I woke up weirded out!

I see dreams as expressing suppressed or unresolved emotions. No matter what the story, there's always an underlying emotion that's being expressed through the dreams. Often for me it's a sense of frustration or disappointment or impatience...like I won't be able to get somewhere on time, or buy what I want, or accomplish what I want, etc. Sometimes it's a 'truth' coming out...I had a dream a couple of months ago where I expressed an opinion about him to my first boyfriend (from many years ago) that I hadn't even realized I had, until I dreamed it, but which brought clarity upon awakening...and that was very cool! I don't focus on the details or situations of the dream upon awakening...I just search for the 'feeling' of the dream, and then I'll quickly zero in on what is the similar-feeling real-life situation, whether it be current or something from the past that needs resolution.

In the past I derived much help from Carl Jung and his incredible work on archetypes. Eventually I found myself trying to fit them, instead of them fitting me, so I began discarding his archetypes and replacing them with my own. Eventually I didn't need archetypes, once I discovered for myself there was an emotional or vibrational essence to every single idea I (or anyone) could ever have. Because I have zero desire to be any sort of teacher or guru or even document my experience for anyone, I didn't really need symbols, since I didn't need to convey anything to anybody. Just me, and I had the emotion that lies beyond the symbol.

Thus I realized that Jung's work was about his journey, and I have mine. I have the experience of Carl Jung, instead of one through Carl Jung. It became the difference between subscribing to a guru and being my own authority. The buddhists say, "If you meet the Buddha on the road, kill him." This is essentially what I did with my Buddha (Carl Jung). It was inevitable for me. But his work was vitally important to me in the beginning, and I wholly recommend his works (any and all of them) without reservation if you're interested in exploring your consciousness.

It could refer to having things like problems/conflicts that has been fixed/solved.
Or
It could indicate to a cordial relationship (which means respect & appreciation).
Or
Maybe, you will get a promotion.
