      Yesterday's dreams-didn't like them.

      Yesterday I couldn't sleep and when I finally did I had this awful dream. I saw a pig that was like a horse carrying a carriage,but the carriage was a bunch of rats, mice -I don't know. Then, the pig died and the mice-rats ate its body. It was really awful... I felt scared and disgusted. What could it mean?
      Then, I saw another dream, that I came home and my parents,especially my mum (whom I love very much) had prepared a big engagement party for me with a guy I didn't even know! He was rich and his parents were there, and I felt cornered because my mum said I should do it and I didn't want him. So I started calling all my friends in order to get some help. I don't know what finally happened.
      If you could give me an interpretation I would be grateful!! Thanks!!

      Well, to start off, a pig represents naturally dirtiness and for what I can remember greed. The pig could also mean overindulgence and stubbornness. As it is taking the lead role of pulling the carriage could mean that is your action as the carriage is your old way/ outdated ways of handling the situation, feelings etc. Though, as it is covered in rats could mean that you feel guilty about your action, feeling, situation etc. that the thoughts you are keeping to yourself are eating you up inside. i.e where the eating of the pig comes in with the rats. That could mean the guilt of your thoughts you have and are trying to end the situation that leads you to react/respond with greed and stubbornness. You feeling disgusted at the end could mean that you are unhappy with how you are handling the situation.

      with the second dream I believe connects somewhat to the first dream as you are trying to break off the engagement party. Having the party in the first place means your needs and resolving your feelings of solitude or loneliness. Trying to break off this party is showing to be a bad idea in the situation or matter you are dealing with. Though, as your friends ( I'll assume) were not all jumping to help you are telling you that it is the right thing to do. To get over or resolve your feeling on this situation or matter that you are dealing with,

      I'm sorry that this is sort of vague. Since I'm not you I donít know what situations you are going through to know exactly what this dream means, but I do hope this helps you out in some way.

      What do you normally associate pigs and rats and carriages with?

      Personally, I rarely if ever see carriages, so that immediately strikes me as odd, just as much as having it being pulled by a pig-horse and filled with rats.

      It could be a lot of things, but it's obvious there's something in your subconscious gnawing its way out, at least for that dream moment.

      Personally, I normally associate gruesome/gory/morbid nightmares with my own mortality issues. Since the rather less than ideal nature of life is normally repressed, I see these as a disturbing wake-up call of sorts.

      Probably not the answer you want to hear since it's not something easily shooed away, but it might not be your answer anyway. I tend to call dreams off limits to that sort of stuff and decide to deal with it in waking life instead, using my dreams as more of a sanctuary. I would suggest that, as meditating or auto-suggesting that sanctuary idea can be fairly effective at keeping those sorts of dreams out of your lineup. It, of course, begs the question of whether it's wise to further repress those thoughts, as they probably are popping up since they aren't being dealt with in waking.

      On that note, focusing more on whatever issue is related to a nightmare and working through it can lessen the impact it will have on your dreams, I've found. I tend to spend a good deal of time working through intense nightmares after the fact, but, well, it's all a good bit complicated.

      Like I said, it could be different for you. Ultimately, you're the only one that knows the answer to your question. Start digging if you really want to know. Just because it's morbid doesn't mean it's just about mortality, it could be part of a more complex situation.
