There are a large number of books on dream interpretation on the market. They range from reprints of classic dream dictionaries from the 1800s with often quaint interpretations of symbols that seldom appear in modern dreams to modern books based on psychology. Karri Allrich's A Witch's Book of Dreams, with its emphasis on Jungian archetypes, is clearly in the latter camp.

This book is divided into two major portions. The first half of the book discusses dreams, archetypes, symbols, nightmares, and how a witch might work with them, both in interpretation and magick. The second half is the author's personal dream dictionary as a starting place for one to develop one's own. Like most dream interpretation books based more on psychology than occult tradition, A Witch's Book of Dreams admits that meaning of dream symbols is highly personal.

What sets this book apart from most dream interpretation books on the market is its definite slant toward Wicca. This book was written from a Wiccan point of view and will probably be more interesting to Wiccans than to non-Wiccans. Despite its Jungian basis, A Witch's Book of Dreams is light reading. It's not truly fluffy, but other than the Wiccan slant there is not much here that cannot be found, often in more detail, in other introductory books on dream interpretation.

If you don't have a book on dream interpretation and are a Wiccan looking for an easy-to-read introduction based on Jungian archetypes, this book is worth a look. Otherwise, you might want to pass in favor of a heftier, more detailed volume on dreams.
