Awakening – These are very important dreams that usually have a bad ending. Sometime when we dream of death it suggest rebirth and you might be now becoming more consciously aware. Symbols of eggs hatching, pregnancies and even weather changes could be linked into rebirth and emotional upheaval.
Axe – An axe might be a play on words to ask something to who ever might be around you in the dream. A axe used to chop wood so it might be a metaphor for a need to assert ones sexual control. Sigmund Freud also suggested it had a sexual connotation to it. Wood comes from a tree and a tree might have more of a significant meaning to it. Trees are symbols of physical and spiritual nourishment, transformation and liberation, sustenance, spiritual growth, union and fertility.
