Like the Pan, dreaming of a pot can symbolize early conditioning and your attempt to overcome self limiting ideas as you move toward fulfillment. Generally a pot is used to cook liquids and so the association leans more toward feelings. The idea of simmering and boiling are also associated with emotions - you may or may not be aware of feeling angry or resentful and the dream can be bringing this to your attention. If you discover a pot of gold, you are examining latent talents or moving toward a greater level of Self sufficiency. Pottery can have associations with the past, as something buried but discovered for its importance in the present. In this type of dream, you are resurrecting old issues so that you can find the hidden value of what you learned. See Cooking.
