Jackal– see Dream Dictionary: Animals
Jackdaw– see Dream Dictionary: Birds
Jaguar– see Dream Dictionary: Animals
Jail– see Dream Dictionary: Prison
To see a jailer in a dream indicates we feel restricted in our waking lives by someone or something (including ourselves). The context in which the jailer appears is worth of consideration as this will provide clues to the problem.
Jar– also see Dream Dictionary: Vase
A jar represents the feminine principle; usually some aspect of mothering (e.g. protection, love) we recognise within our lives. A jar is a receptacle for preserving things that would be worthless without a place to be “kept” (e.g. flowers, pickles, jams, and fruit). Thus, in a dream it can represent a need for the dreamer to preserve some aspect of his or her life.

When a woman gives a man jewellery in a dream, it means she is attracted to him.
In dreams, jewels represent anything we value (e.g. personal qualities, our sense of integrity.
