What is bisexuality?
Bisexuality is a sexual orientation that refers to a person who is attracted to both men and women. Though people who are bisexual can develop romantic or sexual relationships with either gender, they may also feel more comfortable with one gender than the other. People who identify as bisexual may have different levels of comfort and attraction with each gender. For example, someone who is equally attracted to both men and women may feel more comfortable romantic relationships with women but feel more sexual attraction to men. It is important to remember that everyone experiences their own unique bisexuality, and there is no “correct” way to be bisexual.
What does it mean to dream about bisexuality?
It could mean that you are feeling sexually frustrated or that you are feeling a need for more sexual adventure in your life. It could also be a sign that you are comfortable with your own sexuality and are open to exploring new things. Alternatively, it could be a sign that you are feeling attracted to someone of the same sex.
Freud’s interpretation of bisexuality
In Freud’s interpretation, bisexuality was seen as a normal developmental step in the direction of heterosexuality: “an arrest of mental development at the Stage of Primordial Hermaphroditism”. He saw it as a detour on the way to heterosexuality: “an intermediate stage between male and female… a sort of bridge between the two).” This was based on his view that males and females originally started out bisexual (polymorphously perverse), but that they became uni-sexual during development.
Jung’s interpretation of bisexuality
Jung believed that everyone had both masculine and feminine energies within them, and that bisexuality was a natural expression of that. He saw it as a sign of maturity and wisdom, as someone who was comfortable with both sides of themselves.
How can bisexuality be interpreted in dreams?
Bisexuality is the capability to be attracted to both men and women. It is often seen as a spectrum, with people falling somewhere in between exclusive attraction to either gender. Dreaming about bisexuality can be interpreted in a few ways. It could be a manifestation of actual bisexual feelings, or it could be a symbol of indecision or “playing the field.” Let’s explore some of the possible interpretations of dreaming about bisexuality.
As a sexual desire
Bisexuality can be interpreted in dreams as a sexual desire. This can be for a person of either sex, but is more commonly for someone of the same sex. If you dream that you are attracted to someone of the same sex, it can often be a sign that you are repressing your own desires. Alternatively, it could be a sign that you are exploring your sexuality and considering whether or not you are bisexual.
As a symbol of balance
Bisexuality can be interpreted as a symbol of balance in a person’s waking life. The idea of being attracted to both sexes can represent a person who is comfortable with both their masculine and feminine sides. This type of dream often reflects a person’s feelings about their own bisexuality or the bisexuality of someone they know.
As a representation of duality
Bisexuality can be interpreted in dreams as a representation of duality. This may be in reference to the dreamer’s own bisexuality, or to the fact that the dreamer is attracted to both sexes. The dream may also be a way for the dreamer to explore their own sexuality, or to confront issues surrounding their sexuality.
What are some common symbols associated with bisexuality in dreams?
Bisexuality can be represented in a variety of ways in dreams. Dreams about bisexuality might include themes of duality, balance, and harmonious union. Bisexuality might also be represented by symbols of creativity, such as the number two or the yin and yang sign.
One very common symbol associated with bisexuality in dreams is the hermaphrodite. The hermaphrodite is a figure that is both male and female, embodying aspects of both genders. This figure may represent the dreamer’s own bisexuality, or it may be a symbol of someone else who is bisexual. The hermaphrodite may also represent the ability to move between different genders or social roles easily.
The yin and yang
The yin and yang symbols are perhaps the most common symbols associated with bisexuality in dreams. These symbols represent the two halves of the whole, and often indicate that the dreamer is torn between two opposing forces.
Other common symbols associated with bisexuality in dreams include hearts, arrows, and double-sided figures. These symbols typically represent the dual nature of bisexuality, and often indicate that the dreamer is comfortable with both their masculine and feminine sides.
The two-faced Janus
Janus is the two-faced Roman god of beginnings, doorways, passages, and endings. He is usually depicted as having two faces, one looking to the future and the other to the past. As such, he is a fitting symbol for bisexuality, which can be seen as a bridge between heterosexuality and homosexuality.
Other common bisexual symbols include the pink triangle (which was used to designate homosexual inmates in Nazi concentration camps), the yin-yang symbol (which represents the balance of opposites), and the bisexual pride flag (which has stripes of pink, purple, and blue).
How can you interpret your own dreams about bisexuality?
When you dream about bisexuality, it can be a reflection of your own desires or a way for your subconscious to process information. The dream may be symbolic of something that is happening in your life or it could be a sign that you are exploring your sexual identity. If you are currently questioning your sexuality, dreaming about bisexuality can be a way for you to explore those feelings.
Keep a dream journal
Bisexuality is often viewed as a controversial topic, and dreamers may feel hesitant to discuss their dreams about bisexuality with friends or family. However, it is important to remember that dreams are highly personal and can be interpreted in many different ways. The best way to interpret your own bisexuality dreams is to keep a dream journal.
Dream journals are not only helpful in interpretation, but can also be used as a tool for personal growth and discovery. In your journal, you can track patterns in your dreaming life, identify areas of concern or worry, and explore the deeper meanings of your dreams.
When keeping a dream journal, it is important to record as much detail as possible about each dream. This includes noting the date of the dream, any emotions you felt during the dream, and any significant symbols or people that appeared. Once you have written down all of the details of your dream, take some time to reflect on what the dream might mean for you personally.
Some people believe that bisexuality dreams represent a person’s fear of commitment or inability to choose between two different paths in life. Others interpret bisexuality dreams as a way for the dreaming mind to explore different aspects of sexuality without consequence or judgement. There is no one “right” interpretation of bisexuality dreams – ultimately, what your dreams mean is up to you.
