I was drawn to your post and wanted to give you my impressions. The 1st thing that struck me is that your fellow has duality. Being Gemini, he is able to have deep relationships with different people in different ways.
I also got struck with the fact that you had on the same pair of shoes. In Native American culture (Lakota), blue and white are part of the four directions. White stands for South Stage of Life: O'hunkesni / Elder , winter, spirit world, skull, wisdom, and owl. The owl and all of the things that the Lakota used for medicine come from the south. Life comes back from the south; green comes back, all of the flowers, birds, and animals come back. Blue stands for Father Sky. Center, eagle, Wakan Tanka (Great Sprit), place of reverance.
To go a little further, Owl is the bringer of death (death in many different forms), bringer of dreams, wisdom, shadows, secrecy, omens, magician. He is saying that it is important to pay attention to these signs.
Eagle is Spirit, trust in your higher self, vision, courage, universality, masculinity. Know that higher self will only give you straightforward, positive, and encouraging support, whereas the ego's voice will tend to be negative and discouraging. (Power animals/ Steven D. Farmer).
You already have the answers, if you just can still your questions long enough to hear the answers that Spirit whispers in your tummy.
I have the impression that the two of you wearing the same shoes represents being on a similar path, which may, or may not include romance. The message is "JUST DO IT!" ie...Nike, but it may not be what you are trying to push for. I think that you will need to go slow, listen inside, and find your true desire. I get the feeling that the two of you are being used as healers, however the hardest task for many healers is listening to self, in regards to self. Go within as Turtle does, or he will fly by.
Lion, is courage, ask for what you want. You must announce your desires, and not expect others to be mind readers. Lion is also ferocity, nobility, dignity, assertiveness.
Turtle is retreat, stop trying to make something happen. It's time to commune with nature (turtle island) and mother earth. Turtle is also femininity, slowness, toughness, fertility. I get the message that you need to meditate, go slow, and then your plans will be fertile. If not they will go flying out the window. (Flying Turtle) I know that these two sound a little contradictory, but I have the feeling that you need to be clear about your own desires first and are being asked to go within to find those answers.
I think it is interesting that you have little princess, dancing and swimming, and aspirations of material/ or spiritual travel (car). I think it has direct correlation to him beating up a little boy (the child within?) and at the same time saying "I will not abandon you." Is your self esteem in tact? Do you need to champion yourself? If so, Lion will give you the power to do so, Turtle will give you the introspection, Eagle will give you great spirits voice within, and there is the warning that some old ideas may have to die (Owl). Have you been your own best champion? Get quiet within, center yourself and your intuition will give you the next step.
I have never done this before in this fashion, but felt compelled by spirit, so I hope it is helpful to you, and good luck. I want to echo that a dream journal may help you to find that inner voice also.
