Body Parts
By CinnamonMoon

The support needed for the burdens in life. Success after a struggle if your own, or if another's of the opposite gender it means an unwise love affair. To dream of the ankles of someone of the same sex it indicates you will soon find a solution to something that has been troubling you. Mobility in life.

Antennae, receptors to attune to Spirit. Good sign of future happiness. Transmission and reception of energy, attunement. Defense. Protection. Symbol of personal defense.

The ability to apply effort to the work or purpose you are focused on. If it is a good experience it means good times ahead, generally with friends. If it is injured or underwent an accident or any discomfort it suggests seeing a doctor. Open arms are an open life, closed arms a closed life.

Unseen or unanticipated events. The strength applied to physical effort to sustain labor. Generally a warning about lending money or advice received. If you see a bare back it means there should be some preparation for some reverses or a loss of status. Someone turning their back on you indicates jealousy and envy but is not serious. If they turn to face you again the trouble will be temporary. Dreaming or seeing your own back is not too common but a good omen that indicates your problems will soon disappear. Retreat, turning your back on someone or something, means you need to assess the situation and see if it's time to back away. Pay attention to your health as your back supports the body. Possibly needing support from others.

Blood is representative of the Life Force be it within us, a creature, plant, the heavens or Mother Earth; is the force of driving motivation. Free flowing within the body and within life we heed the way it flows. If coursing quickly without regulation it may indicate passion or intense situations out of control; or powerful emotions and passion including those of rage or love. The Feminine Teachings relate it to maturity, womanhood and the feminine mysteries, so power and transitions. It represents close ties, sacrifice and forgiveness. If soiled it indicates negative feelings such as "bad blood" internally or between two individuals. It can indicate hard work against hostile forces. If you were bleeding it is a warning you need to avoid controversy with those close to you. If a transfusion is involved difficulties will be moving on or renewal of life are indicated. If draining it can be the drain of vital life forces or energies, pain, suffering or injury. If there is blood sucking there may be someone trying to take advantage of you. Blood bonding indicates bonds of unity and loyalty. Sometimes the blood of sacrifice.

Here we see representations of the emotions, unexpressed sensitivity, and nurturance. Resting your head on someone's breast indicates a new, valuable, and lasting friend is soon to cross your path. Breasts are good omen and the larger the more fortunate. A wounded breast indicates good
luck with money. If there is suckling expect to have very happy news in the near future. Unconditional nurturing love. The Great Mother. Retained emotions.

Bones are fashioned as tools, musical instruments, whistles and other objects of ritual use. The Medicine Person who becomes a Hollow Bone has shapeshifted into a vessel or channel through which Spirit can take action to guide or touch others. They are thinking, talking, and walking in the presence of Spirit and each action is a service to those who are gathered. Bones represent the foundation of self, attitude, relationship, and belief systems where they are symbols of death and rebirth. Some use bones of different animals for purposes of scrying (usually chicken bones), or for ceremonial tools according to their spiritual or religious beliefs. A skeleton may indicate the need to bare all hidden issues; or breaking things down to the structural form. If in a large pile there are contaminating or pollution threats to morals and/or ideals. Skeletal remains often represent that which we hide from others or ourselves. Foundational attitudes. Meat bones are business reverses, human bones indicate a coming inheritance, and fish bones suggest seeing a doctor. Represent the shaman as a "hollow bone" or channel for Spirit. They are symbols of death and rebirth. Some use bones of different animals for purposes of scrying (usually chicken bones).

These items represent the power and nature of the creatures they come from. The claws of animals and the talons of birds all speak of their ability to hunt prey, protect, and defend. They lend these strengths to the item and can be used for shields, tools, costumes, or jewelry. An animal interpretation needs to be addressed and we recommend consulting our Totem Library for those teachings. While they can symbolically denote something going against nature, this is usually when seen independently as in signs, omens, dreams and visions. In these cases they can also indicate control over aggressiveness or grasping what you need. As a fetish it indicates a desire to connect and seek protection or assistance from that creature. Again an animal interpretation needs to be addressed and falls under the course on totems, guides, and teachers or the Totem section of this library.

The quality of hearing; the ability to listen. Earache or pain may indicate too much listening or hearing excessive dissertations that are not relevant to the issue you are looking at. The eardrum reflects how well you listen and comprehend while the earlobe is again indicative of the quality you apply to those communicating to you. The size indicates how open or closed one is to listening or discretion. May indicate a need to listen to one's inner self more closely or the words of others who carry messages. Jewelry on the ear exaggerates ones image and may warn to heed one's conscience or stop listening in on private matters of others. Other people's ears indicates you will hear startling news. An earache or trouble with the ear it is a warning someone is untrustworthy within your immediate circle. Large ears indicate help from an unexpected source and tiny ears mean a false friend will be revealed. Listen to the signs around you. Pay attention and be willing to hear the truth.

How is it used? Often indicating mobility and function, it can also determine personal space and how far you allow others into yours or maintain your distance from them.

Pain in the elbow is a sign of unexpected opposition; if broken a warning against mismanaging your business affairs.
