As a therapist, I was never much into dream analysis. I am willing to talk about it if the client wants to, but I don't think that dreams have any special or esoteric meaning that is worth spending a lot of time analyzing.
I put dreams in one of three categories: wish fullfilment, problem solving, and/or mastery of fear.
Simply put, if I am dieting I dream of food all night. If I am horney, I have sexual dreams. These types of dreams are wish fullfilment.
Second, if I have some dilemna weighing on me, I will dream, often symbolically, of some sort of problem solving scenarios. I chew on it all night long. I sometimes wake up more tired than when I went to sleep, because I have been working hard in my dreams, thinking about and trying to solve my problems.
Third, if I have fears, I will dream about them and try to get away or fight them to prevail over them, the classic flight or fight coping mechanisms.
I find that talking about our dreams in our conscious mind, usually leads to a decrease in the dreaming in our unconscious mind. So if you want your dreams to fade and dissipate, talk about them with someone, and they probably will go away in pretty short order.
That's it. I guess we could make more out of it, but my waking life is more than enough to keep me occupied, I don't have to analyze my dreams to keep me amused during the day time. Dreaming at night is enough.
