Because it blends the image of the horse with that of the virgin, and the outstanding single horn, it suggests purity with animal or basic sexuality. The message is therefore that sexuality can be directed in a new way with single mindedness. The mythology of the unicorn suggests it can only be tamed by a pure woman. The image of the woman suggests that if a man can meet his own femininity, or if he can be with a woman without letting the energy of desire flow into physical sex or ejaculation, then the energy of sexuality transforms into something else, a wider awareness for instance.

The following dream illustrates something of this. Nicola’s dream seems to depict powerful opposites in her nature. The tiger is her powerful possibilities of aggression and desire, and the unicorn depicts the possibility of transforming these. The opposites are often shown in such a confrontation.

I am in a house with a girl in a wheelchair. Bored I go for a walk. The girl said it would be dangerous. I am on a shoreline. The ocean is in front of me like a wall. To my right is a calm sea and a tiger. To my left is a rough sea with a unicorn. As the tiger runs at me the unicorn charges and butts it. Nicola

In another dream Anthony meets a similar situation. He describes his dream as follows:

A massive force underlying the basement of my house was threatening to emerge. It had already torn down part of the ceiling of the basement. This force was in the shape of a woman and a serpent. But when it did emerge the figure of Christ also came into the room and the two seemed to change each other. When I explored the dream I felt the woman represented my own natural and unrestrained desires and needs, and Christ was the power of social pressure to conform. In releasing them, both my natural urges and social needs could be expressed in creative acts – such as a singer might do in performances. They might therefore be acceptable, though still containing the socially dangerous natural impulses.

Carl Jung writes of this saying:

Christ himself symbolically appears as the Lamb of God or the Fish, but he is also the serpent exalted on the cross, the lion, and in rarer cases the unicorn. These animal attributes of Christ indicate that even the Son of God (the supreme personification of man) can no more dispense with his animal nature than with his higher, spiritual nature.

So the unicorn and the pure female represent this transformation or raw animal urges into creative human action and awareness. The virgin represents the virginal mind or heart that doesn’t hold any preconceptions. Even men can do this, and women and men can then give birth to a holy child – the realisation of their own wonderful potential, known as the Christ.

But as this photo suggests, that young teenage girls can become unconsciously sexually aroused, it shows also the horse holding the girl to it, so it is not a one way experience. I believe that young girls can allow such feelings saying they love the horse. So a magical erotic relationship exists. The painting has a very similar theme to the photo.

    Hi – It would help you to understand your dreams, if you would read – http://dreamhawk.com/news/summing-up/http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/features-found-on-site/http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/acting-on-your-dream/#BeingPersonorhttp://dreamhawk.com/dream-dictionary/getting-at-your-dreams-meaning/


    Jyotishmita – The unicorn in your dream is, as you read, about directing your fundamental life energy. You ask to be able to get good marks in your exam, but this shows that you are uncertain about your ability, which is like leaving a dangerous animal in a cage and leaving the door open.

    You chose to use a magical image, the unicorn that you lost, as a way to achieve. But your doubts turn the energy of your life force back upon itself. You do not have to try to be super confident, that is as much of a failure as your doubts. You do need to let go of any doubts though.

    I found years ago that to make our desire work, to make it real or materialise it, we have to move toward it by doing anything and everything we can. When I was studying and getting 97% marks, I spent every evening playing with the questions involved in the study. Literally I made it fun with a study friend – he suffered from doubts.

    Doubt holds you back, so go for it with pleasure.

Unicorn are real they come in dreams because they be sent by god they are god spiritual messagers there is a difference in a regular horse and a unicorn the unicorn coat is made of white feather hair and when the wind blows on the unicorn his coat parts like feathers on a bird and unicorns coats are thin like feathers unicorn are also sent to let you know what ever you going through no matter how bad it is dealing with your heath the unicorn is sent to let you know you going to live when part of the unicorn tusk at the tip is broken its because the unicorn used it to heal you inside out you take on a whole new look when you dream of a unicorn you will find a white feather in your waking life in a very unusual place in your home and another thing before i forget unicorns are much taller than regular horses also.

I dreamed we were making preparations. We had food that someone brought over and we were happy people. The white unicorn appeared and was just their standing in my face. The head was up and it was so beautiful. I could see as if the blood was running thru his vains. I then looked over and saw the Hugh pretty tree. Nice long trucks and full of life. I could also see the blood flow of the tree. It looked as if it was green, with a constant flow. Nothing bad or scary, everything was just wonderful. My husband and I are trying to conceive and select better living arrangements for us as a whole. We are both trying to elevate on our jobs. We are happy and able to trust each other. What possibly could this dream mean
