are you such a dreamer
(to put the world to rights)

This is a journal of my dreams; ſome ſpiritual, some not.

ιθ ☾ Boëdromion ψ.α

☿ 25 ix 2021

I was with my family in a W. H. Smith when i noticed that every newspaper and magazine, barring two — the Royal Scientist, which i assume is some sort of weird fusion of the Royal Society and the New Scientist, alongside some kind of esoteric Wiccan publication — had switched to the same minimalist cover for the day, with different crossword puzzles on top.

We tried to buy jugs of milk, but, due to Brexit shortages, about two thirds of each jug was filled with water instead.

ιζ ☾ Metageitnion ψ.α

☿ 25 vii 2021

Me and a friend trapped and killed a deer in our local woods and cooked the meat for dinner. I don’t remember how the venison tasted.

θ ☾ Thargelion χϟθ.δ

♂ 1 vi 2021

I was on a trip to Paris with my old school. After searching far and wide for a Greggs, we found a bakery. I promptly bought far too much and tried to speak French (or was it Dutch?) with the cashier, who replied in fluent English with an irritated tone.

θ ☾ Thargelion χϟθ.δ

♂ 1 vi 2021

There was a horrible mishap in the kitchen — i had spilt oil all over the flaming hob. As fire engulfed the house, me and my mum were forced to say our last goodbyes before burning to a crisp.

ϛ ☾ Mounychion χϟθ.δ

♃ 6 v 2021

Radiohead released a new album; five months later, they released their “ten-and-a-halfth” album. It was the exact same as the previous, only all the tracks were subtly reärranged. I went to the live debut of both of them; curiously, they were both held at the Theatre Royal in Newcastle.

ζ ☾ Mounychion χϟθ.δ

☿ 5 v 2021

I tried (and failed) to navigate my way up a hill in the Lei­ces­ter­shire country­side, getting heckled along the way by a drunkard on the other side of the road.

θ ☾ Ἀνθεστηριών δ ἐν χϟθ — IX ☾ Anthesterion IV in DCXCIX

♀ 5 iii 12021

I was with my dad at the Rijksmuseum, when we took a turn into Schiphol Airport’s passport control area. Apparently we had inadvertently inspired a big-budget Hollywood film. Also, unrelatedly, Tommy Wiseau was there with us. We got held up in the queue due to a conversation with an old family friend — who i think had something to do with the creation of the big Hollywood film — and then the dream ended.

ι ☽ Ποσειδεών-β δ ἐν χϟθ — X ☽ Poseideon-II IV in DCXCIX

♃ 24 xii 12020

I went to an airport to prove that a book from the ’80s that i found a PDF of was the same in their bookstore as they claimed it was.

I then caught an express flight to somewhere in India, and woke up in a city square. I got on a bus to go find some place to eat, and the dream ended.

η ☽ Μαιμακτηριών δ ἐν χϟθ — VIII ☽ Mæmacterion IV in DCXCIX

☉ 8 xi 12020

I was watching ſome ſort of political debate / discuſsion on Youtube, when the end of my viewing got interrupted by ſome (probably IRL, given what i woke up to) bird calls. The video's hoſts ſigned off by ſaying by the way, vote for Gæa.

Oneiromancer's notes

I have done awkwardly little to ſhow my devotion to Gæa, and ſtaying eco-conſcious is difficult in a pandemic… I'll do ſomething for Her today.

ιγ ☾ Μαιμακτηριών δ ἐν χϟθ — XIII ☾ Mæmacterion IV in DCXCIX

♃ 29 x 12020

I had to receive invasive shoulder surgery; i was told that there was about a 5-percent change that it might cause permanent brain damage.

Oneiromancer's notes

I, uh, may have binge-watched an excessive amount of those “A Gamer Drank 20 Bottles Mountain Dew. This Is What Happened To His Bones” videos...

ε Βοηδρομιών ☾ δ ἐν χϟθ — V Boëdromion ☾ IV in DCXCIX

☉ 13 IX 12020

I predicted a flood in Turkey. Minutes later, my house would be washed away into the sea by a storm before coming across a naval helipad, at which point i woke up.

β Βοηδρομιών ☽ δ ἐν χϟθ — II Boēdromión ☽ IV in DCXCIX

♃ 20 VIII 12020

The Queen came out as a trans man by the name of King Win­chester, four hours before beïng shot and killed. There was an edit war over what to call the Wikipedia page.

β Μεταγειτνιών ☾ δ ἐν χϟθ — II Metageitnión ☾ IV in DCXCIX

☾ 17 VIII 12020

I learned how to play Megalovania on guitar. (In real life, i have no idea how to play any instrument. Also, would that make me more or less annoying than the people who can only play Wonderwall?)

ϛ Μεταγειτνιών ☽ δ ἐν χϟθ — VI Metageitnion ☽ IV in DCXCIX

☾ 27 VII 12020

I invited someone onto my Minecraft server. I gave them hot chocolate (in Minecraft); they said it tasted better than the hot chocolate a friend of mine had given them, which apparently tasted like coffee. I then ended up stuck in a laundry basket full of horrible, watery, coffee-y hot chocolate. (I woke up before i could confirm what it tasted like.)

β Μεταγειτνιών ☽ δ ἐν χϟθ — II Metageitnion ☽ IV in DCXCIX

☿ 22 VII 12020

I was on holiday in the Netherlands. Papa and i went to the store; my Dutch apparently was less atrocious than i thought it was.

Me and my mum went to a 100 Gecs concert, although the dream ended before we could hear them play. I looked around the venue and there were severely overpriced plushies for sale. We didn't actually know what venue we were at, so we asked someone who informed us that we were in a seasonal venue called the Fuckdrome™, of which he was the king.

γ Ἑκατομβαιών ☾ δ ἐν χϟθ — III Hecatombæon ☾ IV in DCXCIX

☉ 19 VII 12020
Me and a friend (in the dream) tried to make contact with the Gods via dreams. Apollo came eaſily — although i do not remember what He ſaid, if anything — but Hermes was harder to approach.

Oneiromancer's notes

Apollo was the firſt of the Gods i began to worſhip, and, though looking back i have felt His preſence numerous times, Hermes is quite a new addition to my practice. Perhaps i ſhould be more devoted to Him?
