Case Study of Dream Cave
Dream Description: In the dream, I swim with many fishes in the water. When I followed a black fish to a hole, I suddenly sank. The hole was dark, and I wanted to climb up, but I couldn't get up. I was anxious to think that I would be late for work soon. (Female, 30 years old)
Dreamland analysis: dreaming that swimming is related to the uterus, and water is often related to female production. You are in the midst of pregnancy , and the idea of giving birth is natural. The fish is a symbol of the male genitalia. Dreaming that there are many fishes , it represents both the desire for sex and the desire to conceive a boy. Generally speaking, being in a cave cannot be a manifestation of depression.
