I dreamt of a healthy full tree (it was either a Maple or Oak) engulfed in flames. It was at sunset. People, no one I recognized, just stood around and watched, calm, while I was really scared. The fire then spread to my house, which went up like it was paper. I was over come with a desperate need to go into the flames to save my 2 house cats. While inside my house I was nearly blinded by how bright the flames were, parts of my house were falling in but I managed to find my cats (who were completely calm) and get out before the whole house fell down.
I woke up with tears on my face and feeling very unsettled.
I welcome interpretations and explanations of symbolism.
