The details of this one are gone but the lasting impression is this: Laurel and I were on a flight home from somewhere like Disney land -- only we were on separate flights for some reason. She came off the plane with a man, talking and joking as though she'd known him her whole life. I was jealous and did not like this. Then we noticed people were staring at us. We swiftly went home and once there, our cats turned on us. They were acting like they were going to kill us. They'd let all the neighborhood cats in, and we were in a loft apartment, and kicked the ladder down but my disabled kitty in the dream was able to leap through the air and get up to the 2nd floor without aid of a ladder. I fell and clung to the curtain rod under where the ladder had been, and Laurel tried pulling me up. I felt that one scratch, just one bite, and I'd be a goner, turned into whatever evil the cats were now.

A tree sacred to Apollo and expressive of victory. Laurel leaves were
used to weave festive garlands and crowns. The crowning of the poet, the artist or
conqueror with laurel leaves was meant to represent not the external and visible
consecration of an act, but the recognition that that act, by its very existence,
presupposes a series of inner victories over the negative and dissipative influence
of the base forces. There is no achievement without struggle and triumph. Hence
the laurel expresses, the progressive identification of the hero with the motives
and aims of his victory. An associated idea is the generic implication of fecundity
pertaining to all vegetation-symbols.

A symbol of separation, as in the ‘veil of the Temple’ in Jerusalem.
According to Gershom Scholem, ‘curtains hanging before the celestial realms of
the worlds of the aeons play an important rôle in the Gnostic Pistis Sophia,
apparently as a result of Jewish influence’. The succession of curtains is related
to that of cloaks or veils, or even elements of dress and adornment, as they appear
in the Mesapotamic poem of Ishtar’s Descent into Hell. The action of parting
curtains, rending veils or clothing, stripping off diadems, cloaks or bracelets,
signifies a move towards an arcanum or the penetration of a mystery. Scholem, in
Les Origines de la Kabbale, says that, among the emanations, similar curtains
appear personified in the fountains of Isaac Cohen.

Of the four Elements, air and fire are regarded as active and male; water
and earth as passive and female. In some elemental cosmogonies, fire is given
pride of place and considered the origin of all things, but the more general belief is
that air is the primary element. Compression or concentration of air creates heat
or fire, from which all forms of life are then derived. Air is essentially related to
three sets of ideas: the creative breath of life, and, hence, speech; the stormy
wind, connected in many mythologies with the idea of creation; and, finally,
space as a medium for movement and for the emergence of life-processes. Light,
flight, lightness, as well as scent and smell, are all related to the general symbolism
of air (3). Gaston Bachelard says that for one of its eminent worshippers,
Nietzsche, air was a kind of higher, subtler matter, the very stuff of human
freedom. And he adds that the distinguishing characteristic of aerial nature is that
it is based on the dynamics of dematerialization. Thoughts, feelings and memories
concerning heat and cold, dryness and humidity and, in general, all aspects of
climate and atmosphere, are also closely related to the concept of air. According to
Nietzsche, air should be cold and aggressive like the air of mountain tops. Bachelard
relates scent to memory, and by way of example points to Shelley’s characteristic
lingering over reminiscences of smell.
To dream about the air, symbolizes creativity and intelligence. If the air is foggy or polluted, then it suggests that your thought process or mind is clouded.
To feel cold air in your dream, signifies discordance in your domestic relations and setbacks in your business affairs. You may be in danger of losing touch with reality.

Dreaming of inhaling unpleasant hot air might point to bad influences and bad forces at work against you, and cold air indicates some degree of failure professionally and emotionally.
For a young woman to dream of leaping over an obstruction, denotes that she will gain her desires after much struggling and opposition.
