Oneiromancy


The form of divination by which the symbolic and/or prophetic properties of dreams are interpreted. In many ancient cultures dreams were seen as portents of the gods. (see Nanshe) The psychologist Carl G. Jung reformulated this concept with his spiritual archetypes that he believed occurred in dreams which came from the collective unconscious. A.G.H.
