There are times when in a dark place in life, one can manifest signs or people in waking dreams. For example, I was at a huge crossroads in my life. Just got fired from my job and was contemplating this ridiculous idea of going to University to get a Teaching degree. I was 25 at the time, and had no money. I couldn’t see how getting in University, after working 8 years in insurance, would be possible. All I had was a High School Diploma. Then one night, I was watching Late Night With David Letterman (on an American Channel/I live in Canada) and all of a sudden the screen went dark, and this add appeared: “Concordia University, Real Education for the Real World” the screen returned black and it was back to David!!! I was in SHOCK!! I had never experienced that sort of “sign” in my life. I took it quite seriously and 4 years later that I had my Teaching Degree specializing Early Childhood education.
This is a good example of what is happening in this dream, however, it seems to take it quite further. I have never experienced this before (with a person on t.v. who is real). I did some research on Zak, but most importantly his tats. On his arm he has the celtic cross. See meaning here On his wrist he has a tattoo which he declines to talk about because it represents his “dark side” and he said something about Dracula.
The Tatoo on his back is of a gargoyle or winged demon. Those horns were really wingtips as you describe.
Before you started having dreams about “Zak” you mentioned asking God to take care of your Soul Mate. I am assuming this Soul Mate also has the list of characteristics you wrote in your journal about the man you want to attract? Am I correct? If so, “Zak” seems to be the representation of this guy.. , but most importantly, Zak is also the representation of all those qualities in YOU!! If you get what I mean. People in our dreams, like in real life, are also a mirror of ourselves.. You can create, in you, what is in Zak.. Whatever depression you were going through Zak was sent to help you through it. Meaning.. You can also count on yourself for comfort too!! Yet I also have a hunch it goes deeper than that… However, since I do not know you personally it makes this interpritation a bit more challenging.
Ok.. So.. The part where Zak manifests on tv excites me too. I get the shivers. Spirit can come to you in many ways: Radio, tv, songs, billboards, friends, poems.. Animals etc… When spirit or angels or God wants to tell you something and one is very tired (depression) he goes at it with a bang. (I’m speaking from my intuition here). Maybe Zak is a Soul Mate in a past life, I guess Jennifer can touch on that subject more deeply. However, what I know for sure, that if you look at the dreams, and the tat meanings all relate to a spiritual path with God. He’s the rock and the support you need in this life: Your faith in God! Zak is the manifestation of all the support, strength, and love you need.. Zak also has a dark side, which, does not come through in your dreams except for the “term” intimidating. Maybe, you know, with Zak around, nothing can hurt you! Do you see that?
The only strong past life connection that I see is his Saturn to your sun. You’ve been obsessed with him before, also, from afar. I sense that maybe he was a leader in your community or tribe or clan; perhaps you tried to do something to win his approval, to get him to notice you. (And, you may have been a male in that incarnation.)
Something about what he does and who he is – you want to be. He’s your golden shadow. And, with that Saturn being conjunct your present North Node, figuring out how to bring out that Shadow in yourself will help you to evolve and fulfill this life’s purpose. See what you like about him – and work to cultivate that in yourself.
I see the Saturn sun opposition (strong) and a more minor aspect between his Jupiter and your Mercury, which reinforces that interpretation I had about Saturn, as does the more minor aspect between your sun and his Pluto. To be a karmic connection, it needs to be an outer planet aspecting a personal planet.
