Which I kind of interpreted as a new creative force rising within me (the ace) filled with nostalgic feelings (6 of cups) about this King of Pents. But the guy I dreamt about is not a KoP at all, he's more like a Knight of Wands or Swords. So I'm still wondering what does that king wants to tell me about my dream. Any clue, ya'll?
I usually attribute dreams like this (and this card) to the Elektra Complex: those old archetypes bubbling up into our consciousness through dreams and ancient memories. They symbolize a transformation is happening in your psyche.....the process of individuation. I often see this as happening around 35 or 40, but that really depends on the individual and their childhood.
