      Question My goat was really sick nightmare

      *Important Background Information*
      I am a teenager. I live with my parents, younger brothers, two cousins, aunt, uncle and grandparents. The only people in this dream, however, were Aunt Beth and my cousin Isabel who is 4 years older than me. I live on a farm, and I have 12 goats and a sheep in the front of the house. On the side there are horses, chickens, 2 guinea hens, 2 geese, and some rabbits, but the only relevant animals are the goats and horses in this dream. At the moment there are some court issues over my brother and I feel like the adults aren't telling me enough, which could be part of the meaning of this dream. Luna is my favorite goat and she gets Polio sometimes due to a weak immune system; I know how to tell when she in in the very early stages of it so she hasn't been close to death for at least a year.

      *Actual Dream*
      I was at home, and my house actually looked like my house which is unusual in my dreams. I was inside and I don't know what I was doing when Isabel came up to me. She told me Luna was dead! I felt very stressed and grief-stricken, and I asked her why I hadn't been told she had Polio. Isabel just shrugged, like it didn't matter! I think she was a bit embarrassed too though. I asked her, "Seriously, why wasn't I told?" and she shrugged again! So I ran outside to the goats, except the goats were right by the horses which is not where they are in real life. Also, I didn't recognize any of the goats except Luna. She wasn't dead, but very near death. Aunt Beth said she was going to euthanize Luna (put her to sleep.) I told her, "NO. I believe it is wrong to euthanize animals, ever." It's true, I do believe that. I should add we do NOT have the needle or anything; we would have to go to the vet to euthanize an animal. When Aunt Beth tried to do it anyway, I pushed her hand away and told her we couldn't do it. Luna might be very sick but there was no way we would end any chance she might have of surviving. After that I don't remember much of my dream; only that she was getting a little bit better. I don't even remember whether she died or not. I do remember that this morning when I woke up and went to let the goats out of their stalls, I was VERY relieved that Luna was okay; the dream was very vivid and I thought it might be real.
      Please answer if you have any idea of what this dream might mean! Please do not read the dream without reading the important information, though. You won't really get it unless you have background info.
      Thanks!

      I think this is the kind of dream where that which you fear, that which you are worried about comes true. This does not mean that it will come true in reality but in the dream it does. It is a way for your mind to learn to cope with your worries and fear. Preparing yourself for the worst case scenarios. Or not quite the worst case: there is still hope, all is not lost (your favorite goat is not dead yet). In the dream you have a choice to make, and the choice is based on your beliefs of what is and is not the right thing to do - whether it is about not euthenizing the goat or a family crisis, whatever it is that you fear and worry about, I think you decided to remain true to your own beliefs of how to handle whatever comes, and this dream reinforces that. You do not remember the end of the dream perhaps because the end of the crisis that you are worried about is not clear yet.

      Thank you very much for your interpretation! I think what you said is true, that the meaning of the dream is what you said. It makes sense -- my brain is preparing for a worst scenario type of thing.

      Do you think it's possible, though, that it did have something to do with people not telling me enough? In the dream, Luna was very sick and was going to be euthanized but nobody told me even though she's my goat. Isabel acted like she didn't care I wasn't told. I actually have been feeling like I'm not told enough lately. To know just about anything to do with family problems I have to eavesdrop. So do you think that has something to do with me not being told about my goat in the dream?

      Sure. If you have felt lately that you have not been told enough, then this dream is also about that. Note that it is about your feeling that you are not being told enough, but the dream is unlikely to confirm whether or not you are actually being told not enough (if you know what I mean - this is not evidence of what is happening but rather a sign of how you perceive it).
