My Very Own Technicolor Dreamcoat

Today features another roundabout blend of dreams into 3D-ality. This dream seems so symbolic on so many levels that I knew I would eventually share it. I did not expect to have it amped up by the Cosmic Costume Designer. Someone likes to get my attention by tickling my funny bone. The story begins back in August 2020 when I had the following dreams:

8/9/2020
“My Technicolor Dreamcoat”

In and out of sleep all night. Kept dreaming of large gatherings, parties, and I would receive an index card or a regular greeting card. Whenever I turned over or opened a card, Uranus would pop out. There would be a glyph of Uranus or an image. Message was big change on the way. _____ was also in the dream. She, too, was “relocating” and needing to sort through her life. Something about wallpaper selection.

Look up wallpaper in dreams since it was also in the owl/raccoon/shaman dream where the evergreens were down.

End of dream, I was sorting through my closet, wanting to give away clothes. I found a rainbow colored very long coat that I did not remember buying or wearing. I wanted to give it away but then realized it was REALLY valuable. It was my own version of Joseph and the Coat of Many Colors. Seems to be telling me my dreams are valuable. Do not discard the messages or the messenger.

Bible verse flip calendar: August 9: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.” ~ Isaiah 43:1-2

(Later)
“It’s Time”

Fell back into quasi sleep with alarm set for an hour. Put Merlinite on solar plexus and asked for guidance. Dream state reviewed past day’s dreams and concluded, “It’s time.” Right at that moment the alarm went off.

END of dream journal.

Some Biblical Context:

For anyone wondering about the Bible verse flip calendar reference: sometime in 2020, dreams and synchronicities led me to order a little calendar that features a Bible verse a day. I keep this on the coffee table where I record my dreams into my dream journal and later type them into my laptop. It doesn’t always happen — but it often does — where flipping to that morning’s Bible verse either confirms my dream interpretation or provides additional context about a less clear dream. I use it as a synchronous, Biblical “gloss” for deeper dream analysis, and it works uncannily well.

Joseph and the Coat of Many Colors refers to a story I learned as a little girl in Sunday School. Others know this story from a Broadway Musical called “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” Many of the Bible prophets dream, but Joseph is arguably the biggest dreamer in the Bible. I hadn’t thought of Joseph in a long time, but when I was little, whenever some of my dreams came true, my mom called me “Joseph” or she’d say, “Laura needs her coat of many colors.”

According to https://biblestudytools.com:

The Bible Story of Joseph, from the Book of Genesis, is one of heroic redemption and forgiveness. Joseph was the most loved son of his father, Israel [aka Jacob], given the famous robe of many colors. When Joseph reported having dreams of his brothers, and even the stars and moon, bowing before him, their jealousy of Joseph grew into action.  The brothers sold him into slavery to a traveling caravan of Ishmaelites who took him to Egypt and sold him to Potiphar, the captain of Pharaoh’s guard.

In Egypt, the Lord’s presence with Joseph enables him to find favor with Potiphar and the keeper of the prison.  With God’s help, Joseph interprets the dreams of two prisoners, predicting that one of them will be reinstated but the other put to death.  Joseph then interprets the dreams of the Pharaoh, which anticipate seven years of plenty followed by seven years of famine. Pharaoh recognizes Joseph’s God-given ability and prompts his promotion to the chief administrator of Egypt.

Shortage of food in Canaan forces Jacob to send his sons to buy grains from the Egyptians.  Benjamin, Joseph’s younger brother remains at home as Jacob fears losing him, as he did Joseph.  When Joseph finally encounters his brothers again, he deliberately conceals his identity. (More here, including the original Genesis 37.)

From a position of great power, Joseph faces his brothers again, the ones who sold him into slavery. As his dreams indicated, they now bow to him, needing his help, but not realizing who he is. He tests their character and eventually saves them from famine. He forgives them for selling him into slavery, acknowledging this experience as part of his life path.

“The life of Joseph gives a testament of the sovereignty and grace of God for those who live faithfully and righteously. Despite being sold into slavery by his brothers, Joseph remained faithful and trusted in God to deliver him from tribulation. Additionally, this story shows how God’s plan may not be obvious to our limited perspective but indeed ‘all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.'” (More here.)

In my dream, I saw the multicolored robe in my closet. It looked kind of ugly yet beautiful, funky and mysterious. I couldn’t recall buying it, and I almost tossed it into the donation pile. Recognizing it in the dream as my very own technicolor dreamcoat jolted me into an awareness of the value of these dreams, even the ones I don’t like. The appearance of a dreamcoat within a dream seemed like a powerful symbol just on its own. Like a megaphone yelling, “Attention: you have prophetic dreams. Pay attention! They contain valuable messages and insights.”

Now this post starts jumping around in non-linear dream fashion.

Birthday and Pholus context:

My sweet Faery Twin Tania Marie and my “Soul Bro” Mitch share the same February 26th birthday. This date happens to coincide with the Sun conjuncting my natal Pholus (small thing, BIG EFFECT). I have a very active Pholus in my natal chart, because it conjuncts my Mars and exactly sextiles my North Node. My small thing, BIG EFFECT trigger links directly to destiny level events and friendships.

On February 26, 2020, I had an emotionally brutal dream that took me a week to recover from. I remember the date because it happened to be Tania and Mitch’s birthday. The dream wasn’t a nightmare. It contained a detailed “suggestion” of how to handle — and a devastating “demonstration” of how NOT to handle — a coming challenge.

Many elements of that dream appeared in “real” life the following day and week, including that a client of mine shared a dream with overlapping details. This is one of several overlapping dreams we’ve shared in similar time frames, and whenever that occurs, I pay extra attention to the dream. I was already paying close attention due to the emotional intensity and vivid imagery, but seeing a literal billboard two days later with a verbatim key message of the dream, followed by having a client reiterate other dream symbols, marked this as a dream I needed to address.

I’ve spent a year plus of additional dreams, synchronicities and actions tending to the messages of that February 26, 2020 dream. Many, many, so many more dreams have since played out in “real” life.

Fast forward a year later to February 26, 2021, the Eve of the Full Moon in Virgo. This Full Moon occurred opposite my Pholus and Mars. In other words, the Sun highlighted my natal planet of action (Mars) and my Pholus (small thing, BIG EFFECT) as the Moon opposed them. In my write up about this Full Moon, I described a potent Yod (aka Finger of God) pointing to the Full Moon, with Saturn and Chiron as the base. I shared:

This setup suggests a powerful opportunity for healing, leadership, and mentoring. Chiron was not only a wounded healer; he raised Asclepius — the god of medicine — and taught him how to heal. Virgo is a sign of service, symbolized by the vestal virgin “keepers of the flame.” Chiron in Aries sextile Saturn in Aquarius focuses this devotion and healing around the rightful place of individuals within the larger community. This Full Moon highlights what we independently need for personal healing, in tension with changes to traditions and structures that support the greater good.

The Sun at 8°57′ Pisces offers a release point. Pisces evokes the bigger picture and a dissolution of ego. As much as we wrestle with the big questions, sometimes we need to ‘let go and let God.’ When in doubt, say a prayer and sleep on it!

The release point of the Full Moon Yod landed right between my natal Mars and Pholus — a potent activation.

That morning (February 26, 2021), I awoke with no dream recall, but instead, instructions to look up two dreams from January 2020. Searching for these dreams proved a jaw-dropping exercise, as I read through those and the surrounding dreams. I couldn’t believe how many seemingly random details of those dreams ended up playing out in precise ways, months, even more than a year later. Reading these dreams sparked a series of 12:34 synchronicities, including the alarm on our air fryer going off right at the moment I finished re-reading a 1234-dream-related email from January 2020.

Ding!

This happens more than you might think, where an alarm goes off right at a key moment, often related to dreams. (It even occurred on August 9, 2020, as described above.) On February 26, 2021, this caught my attention in a triple whammy way because of the double 12:34 plus alarm synchronicity, which followed an avalanche of confirmed precognitive dreams. The day continued in a magical way, and towards evening, something whispered, “Go on the Anthropologie website and check out their sales page. Right now.”

I went to the other room, got on my laptop and looked up the site. The first thing I saw on the “Freshly Cut” sales page was an exact replica of the dreamcoat I found in my dream closet! I mean exact.

“Open the link. Check it out.”

I looked at the “Pilcro Dreamer Striped Duster” and marveled at how it looked exactly like the mysterious technicolor dreamcoat I found in my August 9, 2020 dream. In case I had any doubts, “Dreamer” in the title confirmed the allusion. I hadn’t thought of that thing in months, but there it was! As in my dream, at first, I thought “Hmmmm, not sure how often I’d wear this.” It also seemed expensive, as items on Anthropologie often are. It was marked way down, but still more than I would pay for it.

“Put it in your cart. Go ahead. Just put it in your cart.”

That little nagging seemed insistent, so I added the Pilcro Dreamer Striped Duster to my cart. Then I did a double-take. The price dropped by another 25%.

Right then several people emailed me about the Full Moon, which reminded me of my Mars/Pholus activation. I emailed and texted a few people, including two I had told about the original dream:

Do you remember awhile back I had a dream about having a “technicolor dreamcoat” ? … Anyway, I had the dream about this distinctive technicolor dreamcoat, which is what Joseph — the dreamer who interpreted Pharaoh’s dreams — wore in the Bible. …

Several linked things led me to this site tonight that is normally crazy expensive, but sometimes I catch good sales. I landed on the exact coat from my dream! It was already marked down but ended up being even less than marked because they’re taking an additional 25% off sale items tonight. So! I bought myself the technicolor dreamcoat of my actual dream.

It’s ugly/cool/beautiful in a very boho way … but mostly, I had to get it because it’s so distinctive and EXACTLY like the coat I found in my closet in my dream. Of all the people I know … I should have one. My mom used to joke about this with me when I was little. To see this exact, very unusual thing available and on sale, after all the wild sync’s earlier today is … wow.

Also, today’s Bible verse flip calendar is:

“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything; tell God your needs, and don’t forget to thank him for his answers.” ~ Philippians 4:6

Um, thank you for the answers! Happy Full Moon!

At the time of the August 9 dream, I recognized this as a sign — “Wow, I have a technicolor dreamcoat in my dreams; that’s a message that I have prophetic dreams.” But to have it confirmed and appear, at half price, on the Full Moon whose release point is right between my Pholus and Mars … a coat of many colors, symbolic of the biggest prophetic dreamer of the Bible…

It’s beyond the beyond. I am SOOOOO grateful for the difference a year has made. So grateful for all of this, including the overall message of the Joseph story: “all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

I wrote the Precognitive Blues Series to share some of the blessings and challenges of precognition, including dreams that often come true. I continue to receive some challenging messages through my dreams, but I feel so much better prepared for whatever and whenever the bigger dream themes collide with reality. I’ve also seen SUCH amazing blessings in dreams, and many of those have already occurred. The dreamcoat’s appearance seems to say the rest will, too.

I feel so much gratitude for my Dream Guys and for that Cosmic Costume Designer with a great sense of humor. If I were a Marvel character, dreaming would be my superpower and this would be my outfit:

Blessed Be … and be the blessing! Much love to all ….
