Just woke up from a bad dream that I was back in school when a wildfire sparked near my house in the middle of a huge storm. I rushed home and by the time I got there my neighbors houses were beginning to catch fire. The wind was howling and spreading the fire faster, the air was red. I began throwing as many items as I could into a bag knowing this was all I’d have left. I specifically remember feeling despair over losing my childhood photos as I knew I couldn’t take them all with me. I woke up hearing the wind howling and seeing the clouds and the sky turn completely red.

What does this dream even mean?!?!
Backstory: So there was this beautiful girl (we’ll call her Nicole) that I used to date for a couple years but unfortunately we broke it off in a calm friendly way back in 2020. (Wasn’t a shitstorm break up)But to be honest I regret the breakup.
So the dream starts out with my cousins and I partying in Fort Lauderdale. We grab a few drinks and start reminiscing about our grandma that had passed away last year. So far the dream seems like something normal so I can’t even tell that I’m dreaming. Well for some odd reason I leave the party and my cousins. A bright cherry red convertible pulls up with some girls and the driver tells me to hop in. Of course I hop in, sat in the back and to my left is Nicole! The car drives off and I tell her I miss her and she ask “can we start again” I hesitated a little bit and told her yeah we can be friends! She said no, more than friends! I pulled her in and we started making out and that’s the part of the dream that was so real. Her lips, the feel of her hair when I ran my fingers through, and even the lip biting thing she used to do! Spot on. To end the dream it was late night and we were walking around talking and holding hands and all of the sudden in the sky we could see a bright orange light. Looked like it could be a forest fire. So we run around the corner to see what the light is… big big ole mushroom cloud from a nuclear explosion. I scream OH FUCK THATS REAL!!! We turn to each other and kiss until the explosion took us out seconds later. You can never die in a dream so as soon as I “did” I woke up.
When I woke up, not gonna lie I was pissed. Why couldn’t that have been real? Why did it feel so real? Is this a sign to leave her in the dust and not miss her? Why why why? It was a good dream and a nightmare at the same time. So weird!

I dreamed of a leopard adopting a monkey
The dream was entirely third person perspective, although the imagery occasionally got really trippy. The leopard finds a little monkey in a forest fire and saves him. The monkey rides on her back, using his hands and dexterity to work the land while she hunts and protects. I don't remember much but the monkey's personality was heavily inspired by a knight. Unfortunately a pack of lions ambush them and take the monkey, the leopard only escaping because a herd of buffalo tramples everyone. Then I woke up.

Need help interpreting dream last night
In this dream I had a unique sense of betrayal like someone had stolen my partner or something. What I remember distinctly is that I had a huge tattoo filling up most of my forearm next to my existing IRL standing Buddha. Where IRL I have a large tattoo of a sanskrit word "Ahimsa" meaning non harming.
The tattoo was of a hooded figure. It reminded me of this painting:
It was black and grey with just a hint of green in the tones. It had a crescent moon on its forehead, with the points facing upward. Most of its body was shrouded in shadow. What you could see of its body was emaciated, dead and rotting, in some places wet and others almost dry as if mummified mummified or maybe burn. Im not sure what gender it was. It felt beyond gender. Again like the artwork of Beksinski:
The figure was above the ocean, its garment draping well into the water, with seagulls flying around it. In front of its abdomen about lung high was a classical colonial looking ship. Complete with the sails and sailors and everything. It held its hands on either side of this ship hands in a positing as though it was holding an invisible tennis ball in them, fingers pointing toward the ship. The ship was being torn in two as though a moment after the split second capture in the tattoo it was going to be ripped into shreds.
The figure didn't feel evil more just benign like a force of nature. Neither good nor bad just a fact. We just had wildfires in my town and I meditated a lot on how the fire was neither good nor bad just a natural process. We happened to be in the way but that doesn't affix and arbitrary moral condition on the fire. The fire just is. Thats how this being felt except being associated with the ocean it can't be about the wildfires.
I has this permanently affixed to my body. It felt very important to me and now it feels wrong that it isn't there. I could see it being about colonialism or cultural appropriate as I am white. But it doesn't make sense for it replacing the Ahimsa tattoo. As that image and concept comes from a worldwide religon that wants people from all races and cultures to joint and follow it. It isn't just a token tattoo I am a hard-core Buddhist and consider non harming my highest calling. I have other tattoos that make a much better argument for cultural appropriation (just being honest) but it wasn't replacing those. I think the fact that the figure was next to the Buddha is really important.
So, head. I've been thinking about this all morning almost to the point where I want to get it inked on my other blank forearm. It feels very important. Would really appreciate any help interpreting it. Tysm!

Dreamt of being an animal in a forest fire
I’m not sure what kind of animal I was, but I woke up under a tree with a skunk, badger and a small deer. I felt a piece of hot ash hit me and when I awoke, we were caught in a forest fire. I tried to wake up the other animals and they were so panicked when their eyes opened. We tried to run, but everywhere we went was just burning. We went back under the tree and I just watched them all shake in fear. The sadness was so overwhelming that I woke up sobbing. That was so traumatic, I felt like I was watching a vision, like that was what an actual animal was seeing at that moment.
