Ooooh...a mystery to solve! This dream is begging for me to check your chart out.
Hey....did you have some sort of 'fateful encounter' with someone that was unexpected and affected you on a Conscious level....in November, 2003? Not sure if that's related. If you can think back to November...I wonder if you did experience a shock of some kind and you're cutting yourself some slack because you went through something in November that wasn't all that pleasant....?
Your Father in your dream is an aspect of yourself. Depending on what your father's traits are (maybe write them down?) - there is that aspect of yourself that is getting frustrated with energy flow within your Emotional Body...? That's great that you were firm but loving with this aspect of yourself. More love would probably do it!
If you're having dreams about Teaching all the time it really depends on whether the dreams are wonderful feeling or frustrating feeling. I guess they would all relate to how you feel as a Teacher...if you're getting across to your students etc.
Shopping is symbolic of looking for what you NEED. The items themselves and colours will shed some light on that. Are you being cautious about giving your Self what you Need?
Also, Janaki, I also noticed that at your birthday in 2003 you started a brand new 13-year cycle! Brand spanking new! Does this year feel completely different from the 13 that came before it? From 1990 until 2002 you were in a cycle that was all about planting your seed. (Yellow Seed) I wonder if you felt that within those 13 years....when you neared the end you noticed old issues wrapping themselves up...?
So now you are in a Red Moon 13-year phase...and you're in a Red Mooon phase this year. This is all about the following and remember that you are asking the question this year: "How do I call forth the resonance of my True Vibration?" Yes! And you do it with Red Moon, below:
Red Moon is the cosmic seed of awakened awareness. Consume it like a fruit, and let it blossom within you. You are on the quest of self-remembrance, of Godseed. If you work with the energy of Red Moon with clear awareness and attention, an awakened state of remembrance will naturally blossom within you. Remembrance means having direct access to your expanded presence through an intrinsic perception of unity. Remembrance is your recognition of the larger pattern and your connection to it, often facilitated through dreams, art, music, colors and creative pursuits. With focused attention, meditate on Red Moon and you will receive help with self-remembrance.
Red Moon is also a beacon or transmitting station. As you open to self-remembrance, you become a beacon and receiver for cosmic consciousness. This communication creates the gradual opening of the third eye, the eye within the mononlith of self. As this eye opens and your communication becomes more refined, you will notice more signs, signals and understanding coming to you. These are all for your growth and evolution - a feedback system from which you can gain insight about your journey.
To the Maya, Red Moon is represented by the raindrop or rainwater. "Drink from my clear waters," says Red Moon. "Be cleansed by my rain. Receive divine guidance, cosmic raindrop from the Creator's eye. Godseed of awakened awareness, acknowledge yourself. May your eye be single. Bathe in my waters of remembrance."
The number for Red Moon is nine, which symbolizes the recurrence of great cycles. (*Janaki do you have any numerology of 9-ness? hmmm - I guess your birthday itself includes three 9's - well 4 if you count all of them!) An example of such recurrence is the periodic return of master teachers (*oooh, Janaki!) to help awaken human beings on Earth. Nine is the number of Quetzalcoatl, Buddha, and Christ. Red Moon is a symbol for great teachers who have come to translate universal wisdom to humanity, to embody the awakened state of consciousness that is accessible to all. Such teachers serve as a connection to the Divine and hold the promise of full self-mastery.
The color for Red Moon is sunset peach, which can assist in remembering your Essence Self. Use this color for the tender awakening of divine consciousness within you."
Woah, Janaki! THIS is the Theme of your next 13 years! And it just started this year. Do you feel this freshness?
That 'promise of self master' and all that Beacon Teacher stuff soooo resonates to your 12th house Capricorn Moon! Yes. The 12th house is the Divine Womb...and the place of public service...your masterful Moon is there ready to give. With this placement you just have to follow your intuition and not try to control things at all. Ride the wave and you will achieve that mastery that you desire. You can't control this aspect of your being.
