Dreaming about a jar is often an indicator that you feel trapped, stagnant or stuck in life.
The jar might be a representation of how constrained you feel right now.
If you think your life is in a rut at present, or you can't negotiate your way out of a situation, this it could explain why you saw the jar in your dream. Even more so if you were in the jar in your dreamscape.
If you were able to crack the jar open, it could prove that you know you have the strength to make a change and escape this feeling of being held back. Perhaps you have experienced something similar before and so have the knowledge that you can get through it if you repeat the same actions.
A jar is thought to be linked to our emotions too. If you have been bottling up your feelings for pointless reasons- the dream could be telling you that this isn’t healthy. If the jar was cracked, then you may be at breaking point and you need to find a safe way to release these emotions before they hurt you or someone else.
Consider the damage opening the lid would do in comparison to letting the jar break from the pressure of not opening it up. It’s possible popping the lid will be the kinder option to you and everyone else involved.
If the jar was empty, you might be going through a period of financial worry or stress. However, if the jar was full, you are in a comfortable position and will be successful in your endeavours.
A broken jar is indicative of heartbreak or disappointment- so maybe you have experienced some upsetting news lately or perhaps you anticipate something negative in your near future.
