Twelve is the number of the signs of the zodiac and the symbol for a complete year. Twelve months, as well as the number of disciples of Jesus. There are Twelve animals in the sign of the zodiac, Twelve knights at Arthur’s round table, Twelve chosen tribes of Israel. Twelve is a very important number.
If it is Twelve o’clock in your dream, it really is “high time”! Twelve refers to the knowledge you have gained, serving as a guide to enrich your soul. Twelve is the symbol of all that is possible, your hopes and desires, your instincts and urges, but also your higher ideals, reason, love, all doubts, and intuidon—in other words, everything that makes up a human life.
Dreams of the number twelve signify completion. Perhaps you have come full circle in a project, a relationship or an issue. Because there are twelve months in a year and twelve astrological signs in the Zodiac, perhaps this dream is telling you to wait a year, or a full cycle, before you make a decision. Consider that numerologically, the twelve becomes a three (1+2=3). See Three and Twelve Step Program.
Dreams of a Twelve Step Program represent a light at the end of the tunnel. You are coming to believe in a higher power, and becoming willing to turn your life and will over to the care of your higher power in order to get you through this drastic and powerful time of change. You are becoming honest about what is no longer working for you, and willing to take responsibility for your life.
If you have not yet started on this path, this dream may be a sign for you to begin. See Breakdown/ Breakthrough Dreams.
